A year round delight, Villa de Marineu is an elegant, modern restoration of an old French farmhouse set in the peaceful Dordogne countryside. Decorated with charming furnishings and quirky touches that nod back to the rural past of this house, this is an ideal family holiday home.

Spend days of absolute relaxation around the 5 x 10 metre pool, or in the exquisite landscaped gardens and take in the undiscovered joys of this region, famed for its unspoilt natural beauty. The two terraces are a real highlight and ensure you can find shade on the scorching summer days, or set yourself up on the sun loungers and top up the tan.

Surrounded by tall trees on one side, and with nothing but rolling green fields on the other there is the perfect combination of privacy and gorgeous views to keep all guests happy. There is also a fantastic concierge service on hand to help tailor make your stay, and make sure your French escape is everything you dreamed of!

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.

  • Lovely property

    on 16/08/2016

    Would highly recommend this stylish and well positioned villa in the Dordogne. It's in a remote location with a short drive to shops and other amenities, so ideal for getting away from the stress of everyday life. It's just what the doctor ordered! We had some issues with the shower, but the team came and fixed all issues immediately in a friendly and professional manner. Wonderful week.
