Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids

In the heart of the beautiful Dordogne, just 1.5km from the river’s edge, Maison Alpage is a charming four-bedroom holiday home just a five-minute drive from Domme, one of France’s carefully selected Plus Beaux Villages.

Dating back to 1750, this detached home has been carefully restored retaining so many original features such as the magnificent working fireplace in the grand and spacious living room.  Four pretty bedrooms with period yet comfortable furnishings and homely touches add to the characterful ambience.

Contemporary bathrooms and an elegant kitchen complement the old-style throughout the stone house, making it the perfect home from home in this captivating part of France.

The charm continues as you step outside where you are greeted with splashes of colour from the walled garden and a wonderful swimming pool open in the summer months. There is plenty of space to sit with your morning coffee, taking in the lovely views that surround you or enjoy leisurely meals by the barbecue with loved ones, feasting on only the finest local Perigordian cuisine.

It’s easy to drive down to the river where you can hire canoes or dine in a restaurant near Vitrac or the more active guests could hire bikes in nearby Cénac and cycle home with the morning croissants and groceries. Within 4km is the idyllic village of Domme, classified as one of France’s most beautiful villages, which is set high up above the Dordogne river with a fascinating cave system as well as incredible views.

Follow the river west towards archetypal riverside spots such as La Roque Gageac, Château de Beynac or Castelnaud-la-Chapelle or head north to the unmissable town of Sarlat (10km) with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and amazing restaurants full of gastronomic delights.

This is the true Dordogne with undulating landscapes, idyllic villages and fascinating castles as well as world-famous towns. Maison Alpage, with its charming interiors and beautiful views, is the perfect place from which to experience this magical region.

From the lovely gardens at Maison Alpage there are stunning views of the Domme ridge.  It’s under 2km from the Dordogne river’s edge where you can hire canoes or enjoy the beautiful landscapes surrounding you.

Just a few minutes by car, Domme (4km) is classified as one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages, set high up above the Dordogne river. There’s a fascinating cave system which can be visited and the views down to the river are amazing.

To get to the nearest shops you can drive to Cénac (5km) where there’s a bakery as well as a supermarket and restaurants and from here you can hire bikes. Just north across the Dordogne river is the historic town of Sarlat (9km) with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and amazing restaurants.

Other magical day trips include beautiful Limeuil (40km), where the Vézère meets the Dordogne and you can paddle by the river beach or enjoy some fine views from Parc Limeuil after wandering through the delightful village. In addition, head to La Roque Gageac, Château de Beynac or Castelnaud-la-Chapelle for idyllic days out by the Dordogne River, all within a 10 to 20-minute drive.

The whole region is a true haven for nature and sport lovers alike offering a wide array of outdoor activities, from horse-back riding, to tennis, mountain-biking, golfing and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities in the area.

Kids will love the region’s waterparks, exploring prehistoric caves and historic castles or even a magnificent hot air balloon ride across the stunning countryside. The more adventurous may enjoy go-karting near Bergerac or tree-top activities in the forests north of the Dordogne plus there’s the Aquarium du Perigord Noir and Jungle Golf in Le Bugue.
