Bourdeilles Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10
Tranquil self catering accommodation in the Dordogne with private heated 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.
