LE FOURNIL

Sarlat la Caneda Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sarlat, Dordogne, four character cottages, original features and stunning views.

Lovingly restored, La Ferme de La Tour is an ensemble of beautiful old farm buildings dating back to the 16th century. Overlooking 2 1/2 acres of parkland, are four impeccably presented cottages / barn conversions, and a large chlorine free heated swimming pool. High on a hill, at the top of a valley, we are surrounded by magnificent countryside, a network of pretty footpaths and a neighbouring historical château. The breathtaking valley views, gardens and huge skies will overwhelm you with a feeling of peace and tranquility disturbed only by the abundance of wildlife and the occasional distant tractor. The pool, which is bathed in sunshine from dawn to dusk, is perfectly sited to maximise the views enabling you to watch the ever changing colours of the Dordogne valley. Each gite has excellent WIFI reception. See more details and photos on our personal website

WIFI is available throughout, with individual boosters in each gite, ensuring a good reception no matter where you are..........

On site activities include table tennis, boules, badminton, football net and swings..

We welcome families and couples alike, but sorry no children under five years of age and no pets.

Friendly but unobtrusive owners live on site...

We are an average family of four that originate from the village of Wroxham in Norfolk in the east of England.

Why did we move to France ? Why not...... We are, or should I say were, the same as most working families in the western world, devoted parents, but having to give ourselves and far too much time to careers which involve long hours and stress. So we looked for an alternative and France seemed like the right choice. The choice provided us with more stress and longer hours than you can imagine and for the first three or four years it was extremely hard work, both physically and mentally. However we are now reaping the benefits and enjoying our new life to the full, in one of the most beautiful areas we could have dreamed of living.

Chris and Kate Waters purchased this cottage in 2004

We moved lock stock and barrel to the Sarlat area in 2004, buying a set of empty farm buildings that needed far too much work. But the position and the views had us hooked and nothing came anywhere near a close second. So here we are nine years on and the renovation complete, but not without some real highs and lows and a vast collection of stories and experiences.

The position is magical and just not possible to capture in a picture.

We have been extremely lucky to find a property with such a formula of character, views and location. We are close to Sarlat, which is the jewel of the Dordogne, yet in a truly rural setting in stunning countryside.

We would recommend this to anyone. Lovely place

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Chris & Kate for making our stay at Le Fournil so friendly, relaxing and enjoyable. Your place is a little paradise, spotless, attractive and with lots of character. It had everything we needed - including great views, lovely pool, wonderful walks around the surrounding countryside and yet so close to Sarlat and other Dordongne attractions. We would recommend it to anyone, and hope one day to be back.

A little piece of Heaven.

  • 5 of 5
The property didn't disappoint, all my wife and I hoped for.The location was perfect, peace and tranquility. Yet only a short drive to Sarlat to enjoy the sights and Restaurants. The Gite was very clean, and modern. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to my family or friends.Compliments to the owners Kate and Chris, for an enjoyable stay. They made us feel very welcome, and helped us in every way they could.

Countryside Fantasy in the Dordogne!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect remedy for our countryside fantasy in the Dordogne: magnificent views and rolling hills. Although it feels very remote in a beautiful region filled with historic farmhouses, villages and chateaus, you are about a 15-20 minute drive to Sarlat; and the nearest village, charming Salignac is about 3 miles away.

The Waters are very professional and accommodating, adding to a pleasurable experience. The gite was modern and comfortable providing a good base for exploring by foot, or car. Bikes are available locally for rent but it would be a welcome addition if the gite provided loaners for occasional riders.
We would definitely consider La Ferme again.

Beautiful location highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
This gite was stunning the location was fantastic with a fab pool. The surroundings were tranquil and quiet yet only 15 minutes from the impressive Sarlat and the other dordogne attractions.my wife and I have never slept so well and the batteries completely recharged. It was sad to leave. On our final morning we ate breakfast in the sun looking over the valley and marvelled at the red deer that had wandered into the grounds. Amazing. Our hosts chris and kate were fantastic and looked after us ensuring a trouble free stay at la fournil. Gary and Miranda Hobson. Derbyshire

Honeymoon heaven!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have just returned from our honeymoon at La Ferme de la Tour, and we are already planning when to go back. We stayed in La Fournil, the one bedroom gite, and it was heaven! The gite was spotlessly clean and contained absolutely everything we needed for a wonderful weeks break. We had our own terrace looking out across the rolling countryside where we enjoyed sitting watching the sun go down. La Ferme is situated in beautiful grounds, and we were delighted to meet the chickens and Chris and Kate's friendly dog toffee.
We were able to socialise with the other families staying at La Ferme, or at other times keep our selves to our selves thanks to high level of privacy between each gite. The grounds and the pool were immaculately maintained, and the wifi was extremely easy to use and reliable. It was also a nice surprise when we turned the TV on to discover we could receive English Sky TV!
We found Chris and Kate and their family to be really helpful and friendly. There always seemed to be someone on site which was reassuring. Their recommendations were extremely useful as we were new to the area, and we enjoyed visiting the restaurants they suggested.
At the end of the week it was easy to dispose of our rubbish and bottles as the bins were on the road a short distance from La Ferme.
We had an unforgettable honeymoon in the Dordogne and staying at La ferme was a huge part of that. It was such a pleasure coming back after busy days out to the quiet tranquility of this stunning place. We'll be back..
