THE DESCRIPTION ACCURATELY CONVEYED THE REALITY.

  • 5 of 5
After a 7 hour flight from Philadelphia to de Gaulle and a 5 hour drive to Naudoux, we arrived at our 'home' for the next two weeks. A better place to decompress could not be imagined.
The first week our daughter and son-in-law were with us. What a joyous time we had visiting many quaint villages steeped in history, and most significantly, sitting on the verandah allowing the pastoral scene envelop us with a sense of peace and serenity.
The second week when the weather turned cooler and cloudy we visited a few additional charming villages coming home to our resident cows and allowing them to show us how to be peaceful and contented while the rest of the world whizzes by.
We visited the fruit and vegetable market at Sarlat. The lunch we had at the Presidial was superb. The many medieval villages we visited -- Beaulieu sur Dordogne, Loubressac, TurenneGimal les cascades, Arnau-pompadour, Autoire, to name just a few -- were charming each in their own way. Les jardins du manoir d'Erignac were spectacular.
For a special farewell with Beth and Bill we dined at Relais St Anne in Martel. The food was exceptional and well worth the price.
Each time we drove up the drive we felt that we had arrived home. The location is perfect, the name itself giving off a feeling of warmth emanating from its charm creating a special atmosphere for us to begin our retirement years.

NAUDOUX - A RURAL RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
This is a delightful house to stay in, and a really interesting part of rural France, which is great for walks. We visited in September and had mixed weather, but little stopped us enjoying the all weather veranda and the biggest swimming pool we have ever experienced.
If you want a quiet retreat, this is for you. You are surrounded by fields and cows and little else, and the real treat is the beautiful light that streams into the house at sunrise. If you taking a large family and friends, (not that I would want to do that) there is plenty of room to spread out so you are not on top of one another. Having space like this is great.
You are a 45 minute walk away from the nearest large community which is the historic hill top town of Curemonte - if you are an artist you wont want to move from here. The only cafe there was unfortunately closed for holidays, but during the summer I cant think of anything nicer than walking there early evening, enjoying good food and wine, and walking back.
Meyssac is a delightful market town about 15 minutes away, and the boulangerie in the market square sells the best bread for miles. Do go there on market day and have a drink in the sports cafe, and watch the locals shuffle about their business. On the Friday market they have an excellent fish stall.
We did not visit any restaurants, mainly because they could not compete with the delight of sitting on the veranda in the evenings, and because we love to cook.
The house keeper, Fiona, who lives the other side of Curemonte, took good care of us, supplied us with some DVD's, and is a very interesting to talk to.
I would highly recommend this property. i would say that the initial description we read about this house understated its charms.

NAUDOUX

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a stay in Naudoux so thought I’d write a review for once as I always find reading other peoples reviews so helpful. Having stayed in numerous French villas over the past 20 odd years i'd say that Naudoux is probably the pick of the bunch (including some much more expensive properties). We were there to relax but also had children, so you always wonder if there will be enough for them to do to keep them occupied – luckily the pool and exploring the garden and surrounding grounds takes care of them and so in fact you don’t really feel the need to leave the property at all. However when we eventually did venture out I was pleased to find that there are lots of other diversions i.e. caves that were truly impressive (huge stalactites) , renting canoes on the river (great fun), reptile park (some pretty unusual creatures), the red village etc, so in short we avoided the ‘dad I’m bored’ syndrome which is key if you want a relaxing break! There were some great French pubs, bars and restaurants some of which have very good food and surprisingly cheap prices and some which are more haute cuisine for a treat but still don’t break the bank, and also lovely views everywhere (the views from the property grounds are spectacular esp. on the balcony having dinner or breakfast) and the rather beautiful house itself which is a classic large old stone French house with a big sitting room with a huge fireplace which would also be great in winter which has already got me thinking about a let over this winter. On a practical note it was very well kitted out with lots of things that had us saying ‘look they’ve got one of these’ ie games and things for the pool etc (none of which is mentioned in the advert but makes a pleasant surprise when you discover them)
All in all this is a big recommendation – great for the kids and great for non-kids, in a stunning house tucked away with well kept grounds, yet on the doorstep there are lots fun things to do and explore. After so many years of French hols this is one of the few places we have vowed to return to! Enough said.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR GEM

  • 5 of 5
We are just writing to say what a wonderfully special place Naudoux is, and to thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to share in its beauty.

The times we stayed have been most memorable, the views are to die for and sitting by the pool watching the swallows drinking from it on the wing was a pleasure of pleasures.
The house is so comfortable and has so much character we wonder if anyone could ever be anything but enthralled by it .Also the thrill of finding a house in France that has more than one loo is amazing so three is unrivalled. We really love it, the beauty of the “beau village” nearby and the close proximity to Collonges-la-Rouge - the area is packed with exciting places to visit and the bliss on returning to the silence and beauty of Naudoux makes our stay . In fact, we love the house ,garden and views so much we find it difficult to drag ourselves away to do the above mentioned touristy things!

We will return and enjoy its charm again hopefully soon .We would highly recommend this beautiful house and this wonderful part of France to anyone. It suited us perfectly as a couple and was a delight when we took guests. It is a firm favourite of ours. Once again, thank you so very much for sharing your gem.

HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at Naudoux, doing as little as possible, very slowly. And it was perfect for that. We did make the occasional sortie for market or restaurant, but most of the time we simply relaxed by the pool or on the verandah. The valley is properly agricultural rather than what's now called agritourism, so as country-dwellers in the UK we found the view and the habit of the landscape to be familiar and comfortable. The house is just the same, giving the impression that the family has popped out and left you in sole charge. All the stuff of family life is around you, and it feels as if you've known the place for years.
I'm sure there are loads of things for the more adventurous to find round about, but why leave Naudoux? We didn't.

Situated between the charming market towns of Meyssac and Vayrac with bars, restaurants and twice weekly markets. 5km from the medieval village of Curemonte and 15 minutes drive to Beaulieu sur Dordogne , a busy market town on the banks of the Dordogne River. The house is within easy reach of several chateaux, caves and of course the Dordogne River. To the west is Collonges-le Rouge, the 'city of little castles', and Turenne, a 15th century village whose high pitched roofs surround two castles from which the foothills of the Massif Central can be seen. To the south and east is the Dordogne valley, with a wealth of villages such as Loubressac, Autoire, Carennac and Martel. The Chateaux of Castelnau, Belcastel and Montal are all close by, while the citadel of Rocamadour is only 30 minutes drive away. For those wishing to explore a little further afield, the world famous Lascaux caves can be reached in an hour, along with the many other attractions of the Lower Dordogne area.

Other Activities: kayaking on the Dordogne
