Surrounded by greenery with a handful of other villas nearby, this gorgeous home is the perfect place to unwind in the sun, complete with a swimming pool and al-fresco dining area. Discover the incredible Dordogne region, filled with quaint little villages, rolling countryside and picturesque scenery.

As you enter the living room, you'll appreciate the stylish combination of brocante and design.. The open kitchen is well-equipped and ideal for preparing meals to enjoy on the large terrace by the pool. Downstairs, there are two comfortable bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds, and a lovely bathroom. Upstairs, there is another spacious bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom. Each room is tastefully decorated, with a chic but homely feel.

Stepping out from the living room, you'll find yourself on a spacious terrace that is beautifully lit up at night and is the ultimate spot for eating dinners al-fresco under the stars. Take a morning dip in the swimming pool, or spend your dawns relaxing with a book. With a barbecue, sun loungers and lush garden, this villa has everything you need to enjoy the outdoors.

Villa Delfour is situated on the edge of Sarlat-la-Canéda, a beautiful town known for its well-preserved medieval architecture, charming cobblestone streets, and unique alleyways. Explore its historic centre, home to fascinating buildings such as the Cathédrale Saint-Sacerdos and the Hôtel de Ville. Wander through the local markets, where you can find everything from fresh produce to handmade crafts. Stop by one of the many restaurants or cafés and sample the delicious local cuisine.

This villa is in the perfect location to explore the stunning villages of the region, three of which you can reach in around fifteen minutes of driving. Beynac-et-Cazenac is home to an incredible castle which is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Dordogne River. Another quaint village is La Roque-Gageac, built into the cliffs along the river, which boasts traditional houses and narrow streets. Finally, Domme is a fortified hilltop village with panoramic views of the valley. All three villages provide incredible views and historical architecture, but have their own uniqueness.

In just a 30-minute car journey you can reach Montignac, a town rich in ancient history. Here you can explore the Lascaux caves, home to prehistoric paintings over 17,000 years old. Foodies will love the wide choice of excellent restaurants and wine bars the town boasts, which offer mouth-watering local cuisine and some of the finest wines of the Dordogne region.

Villa Delfour is located on the outskirts of Sarlat-la-Canéda, surrounded by the green fields and hillsides of France's beloved Dordogne region. 

Sarlat-la-Canéda is a quaint town with well-preserved architecture, enchanting cobblestone streets, and narrow alleys. Take a stroll through the old centre and admire the Cathédrale Saint-Sacerdos and the Hôtel de Ville, among other historic buildings. Immerse yourself in the local markets, where a diverse range of offerings such as fresh produce and handmade crafts await you. Treat your taste buds to the delectable local cuisine at one of the numerous restaurants or cafés in the area.

Villa Delfour is the perfect place to easily discover the enchanting villages of the region, with three of them reachable within a fifteen-minute drive. Beynac-et-Cazenac features a magnificent medieval castle perched on a hill overlooking the Dordogne River. La Roque-Gageac is built into the cliffs along the river, boasting charming traditional houses and winding alleys. Lastly, Domme is a fortified hilltop village offering panoramic views of the valley. Each of these destinations has its own charm and distinct character, providing a perfect mix of history, architecture, and scenic beauty.

Drive just half an hour to reach Montignac, a beautiful town steeped in history. The Lascaux caves are one of the town's most popular attractions, featuring fascinating prehistoric paintings that date back more than 17,000 years. In addition to the caves, you can explore the Château de Sauveboeuf, take a stroll along the Vézère River, or go for a leisurely bike ride through the countryside. If you're a foodie, Montignac won't disappoint with its selection of excellent restaurants and wine bars serving up delicious local cuisine and fine wines.

If you're up for an adventure, drive an hour to Gouffre de Padirac, a natural wonder featuring a huge sinkhole. Once you make your way down via steps or an elevator, you'll be able to explore a network of underground caves and waterways via a boat tour. The tour will take you through captivating geological formations and past underground waterfalls. Highlights include the Grand Dôme, a cavern decorated with stalactites and stalagmites, and the incredible acoustics of La Pluie d'Or, an underground lake.

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.

Reviews

  • Fantastic Villa

    on 16/09/2023

    We really enjoyed this fantastic villa, Villa Delfour and the surrounding area. The house was very spacious and clean, everything was there, great swimming pool. Hélena is a lovely, sweet woman to welcome you upon arrival and departure.

    I would like to thank you in advance for your organization and a good, clear website. Correct and fast refund of the deposit. Top!

    We will definitely come back

  • Even better than the pictures

    on 16/08/2023

    Everything was in very good order. It was the first time I booked through you and I am very satisfied. How you do the communication and provide information in between is a plus point. Repayment of the deposit is also well arranged.

    The holiday home itself was also in tip-top order and the hostess was also very friendly. Usually the pictures on the website look better than what it actually is but now I can say it was reversed. Everything was neat and tidy and it is very practical. I was there with my family and they would already book it again.

  • Sad to leave!

    on 30/06/2023

    We had a wonderful stay at Villa Delfour, the property was pretty much perfect and we were very sad to leave and very likely to book again. Many thanks.

  • Beautiful!!

    Created on 28/04/2023

    If you are looking for perfection in a beautiful setting and a beautiful city nearby, then you do not have to look any further, because you have found it with Villa Delfour. Haven't had such a nice holiday in about 20 years as last week (1st week of May 2023), so that says enough.

  • A great villa

    on 02/10/2022

    What a nice holiday we had in the house Villa Delfour. The owner is a sweetheart and nothing is too much for her if you should need anything. What a beautiful house and everything is there, that was great.

    We enjoyed the pool and the sun for the first week. The second week made trips and explored the area. Thanks to your information about the area, we were already reasonably aware of what to expect. We enjoyed it and will certainly look again for a holiday.

  • We had a lovely holiday

    on 16/06/2022

    We have had a nice holiday. The house is pleasant and nicely decorated. The welcome was warm. A nice comfortable house with a nice large swimming pool that can be easily covered to maintain the temperature of the water and to keep the insects out of the water. Great location, beautiful surroundings, friendly owner.

  • We would highly recommend!

    on 22/05/2022

    We have been back from France for a few days now. We enjoyed. A friendly welcome by the owner. It is a fantastic house with everything you could wish for in the kitchen. Beautiful rooms and bathrooms.

    Everything was very neat and clean. We made frequent use of the beautiful pool, so we had beautiful weather. The garden was ideal for our dog, the fence was perfect.

    Highly recommended and worth repeating.
