A true escape in a beautiful setting, Villa Andalous is a wonderful home perfectly located just a short drive from the Dordogne river and near some of the region’s most incredible villages and towns.

Although very much a French home with its rustic and welcoming interiors, the overall design has been inspired by the owner’s love of travel with a calming Andalusian vibe with characterful furnishings and exotic style both inside and out. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped and there is ample space to relax in the villa and dine with family and friends.

Five bedrooms scattered across the home offer warmth and comfort with bright colours contrasting pretty features such as traditional exposed brickwork or artwork. Two impressively tiled shower rooms with lovely mosaics offer a real ‘wow factor’ and there’s a full bathroom too.

Outside the magical ambience continues with several acres of enclosed grounds where you can explore the rambling woodland, swim in the pristine swimming pool or find your own spot to relax such as under the romantic veranda or by the sunny poolside terrace. A summer kitchen with barbecue, plancha and even a coffee machine is a wonderful place to prepare al-fresco meals to enjoy under the trees in the shade of the warm summer sun.

It’s just a ten-minute drive to the Dordogne river where you can hire canoes and kayaks or even closer is an excellent 18-hole golf course. The nearby area also offers wonderful hiking and biking trails, lovely walks through the forest, horse-riding and all sorts of other activities for a great range of ages.

The delights of the Dordogne region are within a short drive whether exploring the gardens at Eyrignac or idyllic villages such as Saint-Amand-de-Coly , Domme, La Roque Gageac and the majestic town of Sarlat with its excellent restaurants and famous weekly market on a Saturday morning. Just south of the Dordogne, the Lot department is easily reached with pretty Gourdon and spectacular Rocamadour both within forty minutes by car.

So whether exploring the outstanding regions around you or just resting in your exotic surroundings, Villa Andalous is all about making the most of this stunning environment in a captivating part of southern France.

On the borders of the Lot and Dordogne regions, just north of the beautiful Dordogne river, Villa Andalous is in an ideal location for exploring the best that this region has to offer.

A golf-lovers paradise, an excellent 18-hole course is just a five-minute drive away whilst activity lovers will also appreciate nearby tennis, horse-riding, mountain bike and hiking trails, peaceful walks through nearby forests and the possibility to hire canoes and kayaks in the Dordogne river just a ten-minute drive away. Bikes can be rented on request.

The nearest village, Souillac (6.5km), has a great choice of restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities. Be sure to visit the impressive Abbey Sainte-Marie and even better combine with a trip to the atmospheric market on a Friday morning.

Start by exploring the Dordogne department with its wealth of beautiful villages and towns such as idyllic Domme (35km) high above the Dordogne river with its amazing caves, La Roque Gageac (36km), a perfect picture postcard village backed by steep cliffs and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle (40km) just across the river. Further north, the ‘Plus Beaux Village’ of Saint-Amand-de-Coly (30km) is a wonderful place to visit with the famous Lascaux caves nearby.

Furthermore, Sarlat (26km) is one of the area’s most famous towns with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and amazing restaurants plus a famous market on a Saturday morning.

You are also perfectly positioned to visit the topiary gardens at Eyrignac (17km) which opens up on Monday evenings in the summer for picnics and dance or Les Jardins de Marqueyssac in Vézac (36km) set high above the river which also open on Thursday evenings in the summer when you can explore by candlelight.

The Lot department is also easily reached with pretty Gourdon (35km) just over half an hour away. Explore its honey stone coloured houses set beautifully on the hill and lovely warren of little streets. Beautifully preserved Rocamadour (28km) is another amazing place to visit, built on the edge of a cliff with the river at the bottom of the gorge.

Children will love exploring prehistoric caves and parks and historic castles or even a magnificent hot air balloon ride across the stunning region. The more adventurous may enjoy tree-top activities in the forests near Sarlat.

Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.

    A very beautiful week in Amal and Rashid's house. An ideal location, at the crossroads of the Lot and the Dordogne which allows easy access to the different sites of this beautiful region. The house is located in a small green setting, well isolated and quiet. A spacious, clean and well-distributed house which allows both to get together and to isolate yourself if necessary. Beautiful rooms with comfortable bedding. Tastefully appointed water features. A high quality service. A very nice relationship with Rashid who allowed us to quickly make the place our own.
