SARLAT - PEACEFUL, RURAL SETTING WITH SPACIOUS PATIO AND PRIVATE 10M X 5M POOL

Sarlat la Caneda Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom bungalow in a small hamlet in the heart of the Dordogne countryside

“Petit Reve” is situated in the picturesque hamlet of Braulen Haut with splendid views of the surrounding Dordogne countryside. It is just 10 minutes drive from Sarlat, which is regarded as the tourist capital of the Perigord Noir, and within easy reach of the many attractions in the area.

Guests say the spacious covered patio and pool, right next to the house, are key strengths of our property. Whether relaxing with a good book, sunbathing, dining ‘al fresco’ or having fun in the pool, you have the perfect facilities you need for an enjoyable holiday. The garden has grassed areas where children can play safely.

Indoors, the rooms are modern and light. The lounge has plenty of space for relaxing and dining, as well as a TV that receives the range of English channels on Freeview, and a DVD player. WiFi available. The three double bedrooms ensure that sleeping arrangements are kept away from the rest of the house.

It’s modern living in a beautiful rural setting!

Getting there:

By car – Takes about 8 hours, in one stint, from Calais. Find the A20 motorway heading south to Limoges and Brive. Take the exit 55 for Souillac, just south of Brive, and the house is about 25 minutes away. We’ll send you clear directions.

By air – If you do not fancy the drive, there are cheap flights available from various British airports to Brive (30 mins) NEW RYANAIR SERVICE FROM STANSTEAD TO BRIVE begins April 2014, Bergerac (90 mins) and Limoges (2hrs) where you can hire a car. If you are prepared to travel light, the cost of flights + a hire car can be much cheaper than driving, particularly out of season. My last 9-day visit, November 2013, Liverpool to Limoges, flights = £38 (Ryanair), parking at airport = £40, hire car = £190 (VW Polo).

We had camped and caravaned near Sarlat since 1987. We fell in love with the area almost immediately. The beautiful villages and country markets; the stunning scenery; the wide range of events and activities, particularly in the summer. So ... we decided to buy a house.

Kathy Waters purchased this bungalow in 2003

We wanted a property that would be easy to maintain and great for summer holidays with our family; it had to be fairly near Sarlat, because it's the most fantastic town; and it had to be in a peaceful rural setting. It took us almost two years to find the right house, but 'Petit Reve' (Little Dream) fulfilled all our needs, and more!

Location, location, location! Braulen Haut is a very sleepy hamlet, but it's smack bang in the centre of the most beautiful tourist area. Ten minutes to Sarlat (follow my route on the back roads to avoid the summer traffic), five minutes to the river, and close to lots of the main tourist attractions in the area. Ironically, as we've seen it all, we're not great sightseers now. Give me a cold beer, a game of petanque, a dip in the pool and a good meal, and that's my idea of a great day!

PERFECT, RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I don't think we have ever stayed in such an immaculate, well-appointed, well-stocked property; it did (as the saying goes) 'everything it said on the tin'!

Petit Reve is a beautiful place to stay: just far away enough to have the peace and quiet but also close enough for days/meals out. We all thoroughly enjoyed the fact that we didn't have to rush out to the supermarket on the first day, as George had left a fully-stocked fridge (a massive thank you doesn't cover it, George!), and could spend the first few days relaxing by the pool.

We had our disabled son with us, who is in a wheelchair, and whilst the property is not wheelchair adapted it is most certainly wheelchair accessible - we had no problem accessing the property (with one small step) using the terrace and patio doors (rather than the front door) and once inside there was plenty of room.

We had a very relaxing fortnight's holiday; a lot of which was down to the property, as there was never a worry about something not being there and having our own pool was the perfect way to unwind!

We couldn't recommend it highly enough!!

UN BON PETIT REVE - A REAL DREAM

  • 5 of 5
George, the owner, sent us clear and useful information prior to our stay including directions, suggestions and recommendations as well as hints and tips to make the most of our holiday. On arrival we were made to feel comfortable finding a clean, well equipped and spacious property. A welcome pack enabled us to relax over a meal with wine and delay the usual need to shop. We spent an enjoyable two weeks exploring the area with its many beautiful villages and lively markets returning to appreciate the idyllic pool and shaded area as in the photo. The only improvement we would suggest is that sheets are made available to replace the 10.5 tog quilts on those warm balmy nights! We look forward to a return visit.

SPRING VISIT TO THE DORDOGNE REGION

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our second stay in this well equiped, comfortable villa in a delightful rural setting. It was lovely to arrive to a beautifully clean house with well stocked fridge and bar. The weather was mixed but on sunny days the shady patio was excellent for a leisurely lunch and the pool inviting. The loudest noise was birdsong! An excellent woodburner in the lounge kept us cosy in the evenings.
The villa is ideally situated for easy access to the many attractions and activities in this fascinating area.
Definitely a villa for all seasons, highly recommended, we look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Petit Reve; thank you for a great review. We do not have many guests in May, which is a shame, because the walks in the area are so beautiful at that time of the year.

QUIET LOCATION, HANDY FOR SIGHTSEEING AND RELAXING

  • 4 of 5
We would like to extend our thanks to George for being such a good host. From sending us a key in advance, to stocking the fridge with food and drink. All things that made our stay a smoother start. The pool is a great place to sit and relax in the peacefull surroundings. Sarlet is only short drive and offers an amazing glimpse of history within the walls of the old city. This was our favourite place and somewhere to shop for regional food and drink, as well as pick up local art and craft gifts. Within less than a mile of the accomodation is a a fantastic cyle route that we took advantage of for several evening walks when the temperature had cooled down. Shame we didnt have any bicycles with us. Within half an hours drive were the towns of Beynac, Domme and Roque Gageac,all well worth a visit and walk round. Supermarkets are close by at Sarlet and Souillac to make sure that you had everything you needed, but make note they close on Sunday afternoons. They both had a full range that you would except in any english supermarket. All in all a very relaxing holiday,with accomodation offering all that you need.

A GREAT WELCOME

  • 5 of 5
George was there to greet up when we arrived after a long journey which was very appreciated. The fridge was stocked with food which was great; the bungalow is welcoming and clean. The children loved the pool and a great week was had by all. Would definately recommend this area and accommodation.

PETIT REVE - OUR SECOND VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here previously in 2009 and said then that we would happily return. Well we did, thoroughly enjoyed it, and will look forward to returning at some point in the future.

We would commend this property to anyone looking for a house with a pool in a quiet and peaceful area but only 10 minutes or so from Sarlat and 5 minutes or so from the nearest supermarket.

As previously, the house was lovely and very comfortable. It is for us, ideally located in a very quiet and peaceful area

We had mostly good, warm and sunny weather and made good use of the shaded patio and the pool.

We had good meals in Sarlat at; Le Vin au 10, on Rue Fenelon, Le Bistro de L'Octroi, on Avenue des Selves (twice), and Le Presidial, Rue Landry. We enjoyed all three, but, overall, preferred the first two, and would definitely return to either of those two.

Thank you once again George for your hospitality and for our time in Petit Reve. We will look forward to returning at some point.

“Petit Reve” is located in a quiet hamlet, just out of earshot of the road between Sarlat (10km) and Souillac (20km), which makes for easy access to the many places to visit in the area.

Sarlat will be your abiding memory of this holiday - it's the prime location in the Perigord Noir. It has more medieval buildings per square mile than any other town in Europe and an abundance of restaurants, cafes and bars. The market each Saturday is amazing and, in summer, the street entertainers in the evening are marvellous.

Far too many day trips to mention them all, but canoeing (for softies) on the Dordogne is popular, there is an outdoor pursuits centre 5 minutes from the house, more chateaux than you can shake a stick at, and a country market in one town/village or another on almost every day of the week.

The local food is scrumptious - we'll recommend lots of places to eat to suit all budgets.

Musts – Saturday market in Sarlat; Lascaux Caves (30 mins); Domme (30 mins) market on Thursday and viewpoint over the Dordogne valley; Rocamadour (1 hour) a medieval town perched high on a rocky outcrop, is the most visited site in France after Versailles; Monpazier a bastide town with a medieval festival in July.

WALKING HOLIDAYS from Petit Reve

The local English-speaking paper, 'The Connexion', had this article in July 2012.

'Sarlat footpath network opens - Around 300km of footpaths have been officially opened in the 13 communes around Sarlat. There are several circuits, which are linked together by adjoining paths. Maps for each commune can be found in the local tourist offices. There are plans to publish a map showing routes for the whole of the Sarlat area.'

Footpaths in the area are well marked, and the GR6 (Grand Randonee), a trans-France footpath runs through this area. Great walking and great grub in the villages; particularly good in spring and autumn when the weather is not too hot.
