TRADITIONAL FARM HOUSE IN THE DORDOGNE WITH PRIVATE POOL

Bourdeilles Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Tranquil self catering accommodation in the Dordogne with private pool. The Long House is a traditional French farmhouse, dating from the 17th Century - sleeping up to ten people and situated in the heart of the rolling hills of the Périgord with beautiful views of the local Château. The house features two beautiful fire places and rustic features and is situated just 5 minutes drive from the medieval village of Bourdeilles and 10 minutes from Brantôme - the Venice of the Périgord.

Food and Drink: The Périgord is famous for its cuisine and there are many good restaurants around La Guibaudie ranging in price from the top of the range Michelin-starred Moulin de l'Abbaye in Brantôme to simple relais routiers which offer a limited range of meals at a very low cost. The restaurant at the nearby Château de la Côte is excellent and a meal on the terrace there on a warm summer's night is memorable. Nearby in Champagnac de Belair is the fabulous Michelin-starred Moulin du Roc, our favourite restaurant and a real gourmet treat.

Bourdeilles offers a choice between the smart riverside terrace of the Hotel les Griffons, the excellent Le Donjon and the livelier ambiance of the Bar les Tilleuls in the square, which offers simpler fare. Brantôme has lots of restaurants apart from the Moulin ranging from the splendidly old-fashioned Frères Charbonnel with its riverside terrace to the charming Le Vieux Four pizzeria built into the limestone cliffs.

Things to Do in the Area: It is wonderful walking country and there are many lovely walks that can be taken from the house. One of these is along the Grande Randonnée 36, part of the network of walking trails that criss-cross France, which passes La Guibaudie. This will take you into Bourdeilles through some beautiful countryside with sweeping views across the wooded landscape. Being in a completely rural location, there is a wealth of bird life to be seen, including hoopoes, hen harriers, kestrels, hobbies, owls and, in May, nightingales that sing their hearts out in the thickets by the stream in the valley. In late February and late October you can watch the migration of the cranes. Wild flowers grow in abundance - from which La Guibaudie got its name - including orchids and cowslips in the spring. Occasionally deer can be seen grazing on the edges of woods on the sides of the valley beside the Château or wild boar in the nearby forests.

Tres belle vacance. (A great holiday)

We had three lovely weeks of peace, quiet and relaxation in this very spacious and lovely house.
The Long House is well equipped so you won't want for anything. Marie-Line the caretaker was most helpful and really friendly, a truly lovely lady.
The neighbouring chateau is stunning and you can see it across the valley from your bedroom. The sunsets from the top patio were spectacular behind the chateau.
Fred maintained the pool well and the house was very clean on arrival with a good welcome pack.

Wish we were still there.

A Little Piece of Heaven

The Long House is a beautiful, idyllic retreat. So pretty with breathtaking views all round. The house is very homely, clean and comfortable with everything you could need for a relaxing stay. The pool is set in wonderful garden surroundings and was warm enough to be thoroughly enjoyed by all. The table tennis also proved to be very popular ! The caretaker and the family who live nearby were extremely friendly and helpful, many thanks to them. We all had the most wonderful holiday. The only problem we found with The Long House was having to leave. A big Thank You to the owners for allowing us to share thier little piece of heaven.

The Long House, an idyllic retreat

The property was great, away from it all with only two other houses nearby but you get plenty of privacy. Inside the house was well presented and very spaced out. The unexpected welcome pack was much appreciated. We especially enjoyed the swimming pool with the day long sunshine and plenty of loungers to chose from. A car is a must, but the local town of Bourdeille is only a short drive and has some lovely restaurants and an essential bakery! We would definitely recommend this to others and would love to return again.

Not long enough in the Long House!

  • Submitted: Sep 2, 2009

We had a marvellous time in this lovely place. We were 4 adults and 4 young children. The house is well equipped for children with a highchair, cot and stair gates in situ, even plastic cups and plates for dinner time! The pool too is totally secured and alarmed for complete peace of mind. There was plenty of open space in a safe environment for them to run around. They had a great time and slept well. This allowed us adults sit out to take advantage of the wonderful view of rolling barley fields, lovely woodland and the beautiful chateau in the near distance as we sipped great local wines and had delicious barbeques. We had lots of options for eating out- Bourdeilles is close and lovely with a chilled out bar and a couple of good quality restaurants. The creme caramel in the restaurant across the road from the bar ( the dungeon?... can't remember exactly..) was really good. Brantome is very accessible with a good choice of restaurants and some nice browsing shopping. Perigeaux is about 40 minutes drive away and good for stocking up on supplies - some nice shopping here in the beautiful cobbled streets of the old city. We really loved this rustic and characterful house with it's well equipped kitchen, spacious and relaxed living areas and comfortable and comfortable bedrooms. Thoroughly recommended and I for one will be returning.

The Long House is part of the tiny rural hamlet of La Guibaudie. It is a large detached stone house that was once two cottages dating from the 17th century. The house is at the end of a country lane in the heart of the rolling countryside of the Périgord Blanc, it is away from roads - thus making it very safe for children - but is not isolated. The pretty riverside village of Bourdeilles, with its medieval Château, small shops and restaurants is 4 kms away. Brantôme, the Venice of the Périgord, with larger shops, famous restaurants, the oldest clock tower in France and a weekly market is 10kms away. Périgueux, the capital of the Dordogne, with its renaissance center, elegant shops and a wide variety of restaurants is 20kms away.
