The owners of Maison Boisette had a clear and simple plan: to create beautiful holiday homes in the heart of the Périgord Noir where castles, caves, market towns, vineyards and restaurants offer endless delights for the young and old.

The result is three elegant stone villas, full of traditional and authentic features as well as modern touches and comforts. Each villa has been cleverly designed to have its own private space and beautiful views of the countryside, and benefits from its own private, heated swimming pool.

Maison Boisette is a charming blend of old stone and exposed wood which give the house a warm and authentic ambience. Indoors there are three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a homely and inviting open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge area with fireplace. A stunning wooden feature staircase links the two floors. Outdoors, it benefits from two lovely terraces for relaxing and eating alfresco both during the day and evening and the private swimming pool sits alongside the original village stone walls.

As far as settings go it would be difficult to find a more enchanting location. This is one of France’s Les Plus Beaux Villages, surrounded by countryside and woods and between beautiful Sarlat and Lascaux. A traditional Dordogne village of typical Périgordian houses, slate tiled roofs and golden stone walls, with at its centre, its majestic church, alongside the ruins of the original abbey. Amongst its places to visit are also the village’s original communal lavoir and bread oven and the restored tobacco barn. A charming village hotel houses a bar-cafè where light meals are available and the newly-opened tea shop also sells fresh bread and croissants. Coly and Montignac for local and gastronomic restaurants, as well as shops are just 5 – 10 minutes away.

Guests are spoiled for choice as far as attractions go within a mere 15 to 30-minute drive away; Sarlat (22km) is 25 minutes by car, the caves at Lascaux are just a 15-minute drive away, troglodyte villages just 30 minutes and Terrasson and many famous châteaux just 15 minutes away. Many of the Dordogne’s beautiful villages are within easy reach. 

Relaxing and memorable holidays with family and friends are guaranteed at Maison Boisette, where a clever and sympathetic restoration has resulted in a beautiful home-away-from-home, guests come back to year after year.

Here you are just a few steps away from a village which is known as one of France’s Les Plus Beaux Villages, yet still in a beautiful rural location surrounded by countryside and woodland. The traditional Dordogne village has typical Perigordian houses, slate tiled roofs and golden stone walls with a majestic church in the centre, alongside the ruins of the original abbey. You can also visit the village’s original lavoir and bread oven and restored tobacco barn.

You will find more restaurants, shops and a supermarket in the nearby town of Montignac (6km) which is located on the banks of River Vézère. You can explore the historic town, admire the beautiful houses with balconies on the river bank and visit the Château. The Lascaux caves, just outside Montignac, are also a highlight of this part of Dordogne plus there is a wealth of activities in this area from hiking paths across the stunning countryside to canoeing along the Vézère.

Other highlights along the river include Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère (20km), another Plus Beaux Villages, Château and Gardens of Losse (15km) and the beautiful Limeuil (45km), 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.

Sarlat (22km/25mins by car) is one of the most remarkable towns in the region with a maze of medieval narrow streets to explore, lovely squares and an interesting cathedral. The town has some fantastic restaurants and there are many opportunities to sample some of the fine Perigord truffles and foie gras that the town is so famous for. The town can get busy during the summer months but you can usually avoid the crowds by heading there early and enjoying the morning light. Combine the day with a visit to Château de Beynac (31km) and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle (40km) for a remarkable day out in the Dordogne.

There is a wealth of activities in the area for all ages with horse-riding and golf both within half an hours drive and a number of well-known hikes for all abilities through the glorious countryside nearby. Kids will love the Dinosaur Park (20km) or the Aquarium du Perigord Noir (40km) and the more adventurous may enjoy go-karting just south of Périgueux or tree-top activities in the forests near Sarlat.

Owner Profile

How Long have you owned the property?
We bought it in 2008, over 10 years.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
We had a family property for 3 centuries in the village next door and spent years revising this beautiful farm. We fell in love with the dream location. Being in one of the most beautiful villages of France in the middle of one hectare surrounded by beautiful rocks is incredible. Peace, serenity and beauty.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
When we took up this project of restoration with the old respecting the purest traditions, we had a wall of constraints. First the architect of the buildings of France, the prefecture, the town hall ..... and the village. We decided to redo two houses by undoing all the existing to redo the same by adding modern comfort. The professionals, told us that for such a project, it took 2 years. We gave them 9 months. And exactly 9 months later our first tenant arrived.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
JUDITH PRICE: Ms. Judith Price founded AVENUE Magazine in 1975 and sold it in 2001. She is currently founder and President of the National Jewelry Institute, the country's first fine jewelry museum. In 2011 was appointed to the rank of Chevalier in the National Order of the Legion of Honor by the President of the Republic for her “exemplary personal commitment to the culture of France.” We received a phone call one day from an American looking for a house in Dordogne for the following summer. She gives us an appointment 2 months later telling us that she would arrive from NY and leave the same day. She wanted to be sure she was not wrong in her rental.
I explain to her that it is necessary to arrive in Paris, then to take a train until Brive la Gaillarde and from there to rent a car to come to the village. Two months later, we see Judith Price arrive, who stays half an hour and tells us she loves totally the houses but she is in a hurry because she has a plane the next morning for NY. She has returned 4 consecutive years and knows the whole family. We have even been invited to ceremony of Legion of Honor in Paris.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should…

Really do?
Go down the Vézère river or the Dordogne in canoe or kayak.

Really ea
Truffle butter and poached foie gras.

Really see?
See the caves of Lascaux at 5 kms from the house.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property on the area? Come out of July and August to make the most of the region. There are more than 100 castles, gardens and caves to visit within a radius of 30 kms. There are heavenly restaurants, beautiful roads ... it's even better in spring or autumn and even at Christmas with the activity around the truffle.



  • Perfection!

    Posted by Mary S. on 26/09/2018

    A beautifully appointed house and pool with everything we needed to make our stay perfect, and more besides! Highlights included: the generous welcome hamper full of local specialities including wine, caramelised walnuts, rilles of goose and pate, the big comfortable beds, the air conditioning, the stylish interiors, the heated swimming pool, huge sliding doors onto the terrace with a Webber grill for outdoor cooking and dining, and the glorious view of oak forests. At night we were serenaded by owls calling to each other. All of this set on the edge of a perfectly intact 14th century village with a stunning 12th century abbey. We were shown around the property by Gwen who was lovely and popped back on the last day to check all was well. We got our security deposit refund within three days.

  • Terrific!

  • Just Perfect!

    Created on 12/01/2018

    We had a truly amazing stay at this beautiful house. The accommodation is of a very high standard, the location perfect and the staff, i.e. Vincent and Julie were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend this property for a couple, family or group stay, just perfect.

  • Really flawless

    Created on 12/12/2017

    Delightful, luxurious yet functional and comfortable purpose built house in a very pretty part of the Dordogne which made a perfect luxury holiday for 6 adults and 2 babies. The house is really flawless. Do spoil yourselves and get the chef in for the evening - her and her cuisine were fabulous!

  • Lovely!

    Created on 28/10/2017

    The house was exactly as it looked on the web. Tastefully furnished and well equipped with everything you could need. The pool could also be accessed from the tiled lower ground floor. Lovely quiet location but near to everything you could want to visit. Great evening food market in the village felt very local you could buy food from the stalls and have it cooked to eat outside on tables and benches. Very calm and peaceful spot. Lovely to sit outside on the terrace and eat lunch or dinner and although you seem close to neighbours it feels very secluded.

  • We would love to return

    Created on 24/07/2017

    This property is finished to an extremely high standard and is wonderfully cared for by the owners. It is located in a small and charming village with access to some of the regions major attractions. The highlights are the lovely pool area, the pretty village and the quiet and tranquil setting. Absolutely perfect for long lazy days relaxing by the pool and evenings on the deck with BBQ watching the sun go down. Absolutely no complaints. We would love to return one day.

  • Peaceful and beautiful
