Overview

Pool Villa/House Ideal for Kids Walk to Village Laptop Friendly Workspace All Bedrooms En-Suite Romantic

In such a private and tranquil setting near to a charming village and the banks of the Dordogne, yet ideally located right in the middle of Perigord Nord sites of interest, Domaine des Maronniers is an incredible house set within ten hectares of meadows and forests, just over a 10-minute drive to the exquisite town of Sarlat-la-Canéda.

Passing ancient oak trees as you ascend the 400m long driveway, the façade of this historic abode will enchant you with its light Périgord stone and pale blue shuttered windows. Step into the gated courtyard and admire the trickling fountain, stone borie and terracotta pots of lemon and orange trees – it almost feels like you are in Provence! Yet this beautifully renovated residence, once a noble lair over two centuries ago and now exuding high-end authenticity, enjoys a wonderful location in the heart of the Périgord Noir.

This refined holiday home sleeps up to 12 guests across its six air-conditioned bedrooms, each one featuring high quality beds, elegantly tiled floors and private bath or shower rooms. The vast lounge with its wood-beamed ceiling, frescoed wall and library of old books is sure to impress whilst children even have their own reading area upstairs. As well as the dining room and contemporary-style kitchen, there’s also a professionally equipped gym with air-conditioning and wall-mounted TV alongside a spacious office if required.

Discover picturesque spots dotted around the garden for your morning coffee and pastries or gather by the magnificent poolhouse with its outdoor lounge, dining table and summer kitchen with pizza oven and plancha for al-fresco feasts with loved ones. Laze by the heated swimming pool looking out towards the cypress trees and parkland beyond whilst younger guests can make the most of the table tennis, table football, trampoline and play area.

Enjoy long walks or jogs through the 10-hectare estate looking out for wild deer in the woodland, before venturing to the pretty village just 2km away with its boulangerie, butcher, restaurants, grocery store and summer market on a Sunday morning. Keen cyclists should join the Voie Verte that passes near the estate, a great way to reach Sarlat – as well as the two adult bikes on site, further bike hire can be arranged.

Visit the gorgeous water garden close by, then experience the beauty of the Dordogne on a canoeing or kayaking excursion with the nearest seasonal watersports base only 2km away. Then there’s the many idyllic villages and grand châteaux of the Dordogne valley from Domme and La Roque-Gageac to Château de Beynac and Château des Milandres, all within easy reach.

Not forgetting Sarlat-la-Canéda of course! One of the most remarkably preserved historic towns in France, potter around its medieval lanes, soak up the ambience of its food markets and devour its fine gastronomy across the many traditional restaurants that showcase some of the best cuisine of the Périgord Noir.

In the Dordogne, just over a 10-minute drive south of Sarlat-la-Canéda, Domaine des Maronniers enjoys a beautiful location in the Périgord Noir, within easy access of Brive Vallée de la Dordogne Airport (42km) and Bergerac Airport (80km).

Reached via a 400m long driveway, the house is surrounded by a 10-hectare estate of meadows and woodland, perfect for walking and jogging, or hire bikes locally to cycle along the Voie Verte, a former railway line now cycling path between Sarlat and Souillac which passes very close to the edge of the domaine.

The village tennis court is 2km away whilst the local village itself is home to a boulangerie, butcher, bar-tabac, small supermarket, a handful of restaurants and a weekly summer market (usually mid-June to mid-September). Just on the edge of the village, visit an attractive water garden with a labyrinth trail through the many waterlily and lotus ponds, open May to September. Also look out for summer concerts taking place in a tiny neighbouring village just 4km by car.

The banks of the Dordogne are a few minutes away where there are summer canoeing and kayaking opportunities for excursions along the river, departing from a base around 2km away. If you would prefer to explore the Dordogne via a skippered boat, look out for river cruises on traditional gabarre vessels from La Roque-Gageac (13km).

Some of France’s classified ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ are within easy reach including La Roque-Gageac, an idyllic spot on the north bank of the Dordogne featuring historic houses backed by limestone cliffs alongside troglodyte caves whilst Domme (10km) is a bastide town perched high above the river with beautifully preserved 13th century fortifications. The famous grand castles of the Dordogne valley are also nearby from Château de Beynac and Château de Castelnaud-la-Chapelle to Château des Milandes and Château de Puymartin, all around 20 to 30 minutes by car.

Of course, Sarlat-la-Canéda (10km) is one of the greatest draws of the Périgord Noir, an exquisite town known for its historic architecture and fine gastronomy. Dating back to the 14th century, Sarlat has been wonderfully preserved as you will discover when wandering around its medieval lanes and the Saturday morning market is not to be missed. Venture into the town early evening for an atmospheric apéritif by the main square before enjoying a meal in one of the town’s many restaurants from traditional bistros to upmarket establishments, all taking great pride in local Périgord delicacies.

Domaine des Maronniers’ setting within a 10-hectare park of forest and meadows is wonderful for family walks and wildlife adventures through the woodland where you may even spot wild deer. Just beyond the estate, there is a village with restaurants, a boulangerie and tennis court whilst cycling enthusiasts note that a fantastic Voie Verte cycling path passes close by and there is bike hire available locally – Sarlat is 10km by bike.

In the summer months, families may enjoy a trip to nearby Pirates du Périgord for mini-golf, pizzas and ice-cream, usually open late May to mid-September.

The banks of the Dordogne are also close by and there are summer canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the river departing from a base just 2km away. A little further afield, find river cruises on traditional gabarre boats from La Roque-Gageac (13km).

You are also well located for visiting some of the iconic grand castles of the Dordogne valley including Château de Beynac, Château de Castelnaud-la-Chapelle and Château des Milandres, all within a 20 to 30-minute drive.

Meanwhile, animal lovers will appreciate a trip to the Réserve Zoologique de Calviac (6km) where you can see endangered animals as you follow hilly trails whilst there is a tree-top activity centre just east of Sarlat with activities suitable for children aged 2+.

  • Très confortable

    on 01/03/2023

    Superbe demeure située à 10 minutes à peine de Sarlat-la-Canéda. La propriété est très confortable avec un grand parc, salle de sport, une grande piscine, un pool house avec toutes commodités et four à pizza à feu de bois permettant de passer des moments très conviviaux. Nous y avons passé de très bons moments vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés.

  • Nous reviendrons certainement!

    on 13/10/2022

    Domaine Des Maronniers est un véritable écrin de verdure et de calme, proche de Sarlat et des nombreuses activités de la région. Cette demeure est le lieu idéal pour se reposer et pour profiter en famille ou entre amis des ses nombreux atouts (aménagement intérieur, piscine, parc, salle de sport...). Nous vous recommandons cette belle adresse où nous reviendrons certainement!

  • Le Paradis!

    on 16/09/2022

    Si le paradis existe, nous l’avons trouvé. Mais ne le répétez à personne. Ayant loué beaucoup de propriétés différentes, nous pouvons vous dire que celle-ci surclasse toutes les autres dans tous les compartiments : que ce soit l’emplacement exceptionnel en plein triangle d’or du périgord et avec tous les commerces à portée de fusil, tout en ayant l’impression d’être seuls au monde, qualité de la décoration, alliance de l’authentique, de la modernité et du luxe discret, équipements ; etc…. à consommer sans modération. Vraiment très difficile d’en partir.

  • Magique!

    on 11/09/2022

    Nous venons régulièrement séjourner à Domaine Des Maronniers en famille. Ce sont des moments magiques. Une fois qu’on y est, on ne veut plus en sortir. Le domaine est exceptionnel et l’environnement autour de la maison est à couper le souffle. La maison est très spacieuse et confortable avec tout ce qu’il faut, jusqu’aux ustensiles pour faire les pizzas dans le four à bois ! Bien souvent on quitte le lieu surtout pour aller faire des courses, jouer au tennis, marcher au bord de la Dordogne, ou faire du vélo et du canoe. Si on ose quitter un peu plus ce lieu paradisiaque on tombe très vite sur les plus beaux villages au bord de la Dordogne, et sur une multitude de sites touristiques et lieux d’activités pour petits et grands.
    Nous concernant se poser au pool house en famille avec la piscine et la vue à couper le souffle reste un moment particulièrement ressourçant et riche. Etant matinal je prends plaisir à ouvrir les volets, observer les chevreuils et la brume se lever de la dordogne au loin… magique. Le plus beau lieu qu’il nous ait été donné d’expérimenter.

  • Des vacances inoubliables!

    on 14/07/2022

    La propriété est parfaitement équipée. Ses grands espaces sont décorés avec goût, ce qui en fait un lieu chaleureux et confortable. Les chambres avec chacune leur salle de bains et l’air conditionné sont un vrai plus pour préserver l’intimité de chacun, tout en profitant des magnifiques espaces de convivialité aussi bien à l’intérieur qu’à l’extérieur.
    La grande piscine avec son pool-house incroyable permet de passer toute la journée
    Nous avons été accueillis de manière très professionnelle avec des interlocuteurs réactifs et à l’écoute
    La propriété est luxueuse et confortable, et nous a permis de passer des vacances inoubliables

  • Merveilleux

    on 01/07/2022

    Maison très agréable à vivre, grands espaces tant à l’intérieur qu’à l’extérieur, décorée avec goût, toute équipée et matériaux haut de gamme. bref un combo gagnant pour un séjour réussi.
    Bien que proche de toutes les commodités (dont Sarlat la Canéda) ou de différentes activités (châteaux, balade en canoë, promenades en vélo, zoo…), on se laisse vite absorber par la tranquillité et l’immensité des lieux à la fois en lézardant au bord de la piscine, en entreprenant un petit jogging dans la propriété ou dans la salle de sport ou en jouant avec les enfants grâce au matériel mis à disposition (trampoline, balançoire, jeux). Et si vous n’êtes pas épuisés le soir, vous pourrez presque apercevoir quelques biches ou chevreuils traverser la propriété à la nuit tombante pendant que vous êtes en train de dîner ou de siroter un cocktail tranquillement au pool house.
    Nous avons vraiment passé de merveilleux moments et nous recommandons cet endroit à la fois pour les férus de tranquillité ou les familles nombreuses
    Un mention spéciale pour la gentillesse et l’efficacité du personnel d’accueil, de ménage et d’entretien de la piscine.

  • Home away from home
