This charming holiday home is situated on a hilltop above the picturesque town of Terrasson, offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. With a large pretty garden, gorgeous swimming pool complete with a pool house, and an old tower, it's the ideal place to enjoy the sunshine.

As you enter the villa, you are greeted by a spacious living room, decorated in neutral tones with comfortable seating, a coffee table, and a flat-screen TV. Both the living room and kitchen feature a large wooden dining table with chairs for six guests, perfect for meals with loved ones. The three bedrooms are well-decorated with classic décor and comfortable furnishings, giving them a homely feel.

As you step out of the living room through the sliding doors, you'll find yourself on the terrace, complete with an al fresco dining area and barbecue, for outdoor entertaining. The pool area is equally inviting, with plenty of comfortable sun loungers and parasols to relax under the sun's warm embrace. And for those looking to stay active, the lush green lawn is great for a game of football or other outdoor activities.

Villa Basse is just a five-minute drive away from Terrasson-Lavilledie, a quaint town with historic architecture and scenic countryside. Wander through the historic streets of the old town, backed by beautiful medieval buildings and dotted with restaurants. Be sure to visit the Place de la Halles, a large market square surrounded by old stone architecture, and the Jardins de l'Imaginaire, a garden with water features, and sculptures. The town hosts several festivals throughout the year, including a jazz festival in July and a Christmas market in December.

Montignac, located less than a half hour’s drive away, is a must-visit for anyone interested in history and culture. Here you’ll find the Lascaux caves, with prehistoric cave paintings that date back over 17,000 years, and a fascinating Romanesque Church. Stroll along the Vézère River, or rent a bike and explore the scenic countryside. Foodies will love the impressive selection of top-rated restaurants and wine bars that serve up mouth-watering local cuisine and fine wines.

Hop in the car and drive around thirty five minutes to Sarlat-la-Canéda, a town steeped in history. To best experience the town, a walking tour of the old town is highly recommended, as it boasts old architecture, winding streets, and lots of restaurants. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the Gothic Cathédrale Saint-Sacerdos, complete with intricate stained-glass windows, and the Musée de Sarlat et du Périgord Noir, which offers insights into the region's captivating past.

The town is also known for its vibrant market scene, where you can sample local products like truffles, foie gras, and wine.

If you are feeling adventurous, take a one-hour drive to Gouffre de Padirac, a natural wonder that features a massive sinkhole. After descending via steps or an elevator, you'll have the opportunity to explore a network of underground caves and waterways on a boat tour. Along the way, you'll be amazed by geological formations and underground waterfalls, including the Grand Dôme, a cavern adorned with striking stalactites and stalagmites.

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 Nice Holiday

    on 10/09/2023

    It is a detached and quietly located beautiful and clean house/bungalow with lots of space. Everything is on one level with sliding doors in the living room to the large garden. Neat furnishings with all the trimmings. Around the house there is a large enclosed garden (nice for our boomer) with an organic swimming pool with sun beds. Unfortunately the swimming pool is not heated, but we still use it a lot when the weather is nice. The house is located on a road with other detached houses, but you have enough privacy in the garden. At the front of the house and at the swimming pool you have a beautiful view of the hilly surroundings. There are several supermarkets in Terrasson for groceries and the town itself is also nice for a visit. Nearby places to visit include Brives, Sarlat and Limoges. Upon arrival, you will walk around the house with the friendly owner with explanations in French. We had a very nice holiday in this beautiful house and it is certainly worth repeating.

  • Thank you!!

    Created on 31/08/2023

    What a beautiful holiday home, everything nice and tidy both inside and outside. A beautifully maintained and well-enclosed garden. Our dog also had a great time, he could stroll around the house without 'escaping', because when he goes after his nose, he doesn't pay attention to anything anymore. This is how we as a family were able to relax. The pool is also fantastic, and we enjoyed it under the veranda. Trips to Terrasson were also very nice what a beautiful old town!

    Thank you!!

    on 11/07/2021

    Yes we thoroughly enjoyed Villa Basse. We are now at the end of the first week in Villa Basse and we still have a nice week to go. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Although not all sun, the weather suits us fine at the moment. Temperatures not too high and enough days less sun and a little rain to recover, wonderful. This is also excellent for the dogs. They have plenty of space here at Villa Basse and enjoy it to the full.

  • We had a great time

    on 05/07/2020
