About Linda Pretty
John and I have been coming to France for many years and during one of our many visits to the Dordogne we bought a plot of land ideally situated to explore the Perigord Noir. This architect-designed house has been a joy to live in and has offered our guests the space and privacy we hoped for. During 2012 we successfully ran the house as a B & B and on the strength of that we decided to move offering holiday rentals instead.
Linda Pretty purchased this House in 2008

Wonderful house and setting
Spotless clean house in the countryside. Easy walk into town along the river and through the fields. Quiet and comfortable with everything you could need. Owners very nice and there to greet you and answer questions. We will return and we highly recommend with much enthusiasm. Le Bugue and surrounding areas just fantastic. House is just like the photos and every bit as nice as advertised. Also recommended, Canoe Erik, Tuesday market, La Pergola, the bakeries, the creperies, the local wine store and local wines hiking and biking. Bon Voyage! Thank You Linda and John!!!
A wonderful 'home from home' - well appointed holiday home for the perfect family vacation
Just spent the most perfect week at Maison Jolie - it is perfect for a family holiday. The house itself is of a very high standard , a fully equipped kitchen, games and dvd's for the evening, ping pong table for the competitive boys and heated pool!!
Le Bugue is walking distance with many lovely restaurants and bars as well as canoe Eric for trips on the Dordogne which is a must!!!
Many thanks to Linda and John who were so welcoming and helpful during our stay - giving us recommendations on restaurants and cycle hire.
100% recommend and have already told extended family and friends as this is definitely a place we would plan to come back to 😄�
A fantastic location to explore the Dordogne and Vezere Valleys
Great accommodation, spacious and well equipped. There is so much to do in this area and the house is in the perfect spot. John & Linda were the perfect hosts and always ready to offer help and advice.
Great Space. Lovely hosts
We found the space ideal for us. 7 adults but never tripping over ourselves. Super clean and very well equipped kitchen. Conveniently situated.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Maison Jolie. The owners Linda and John were extremely welcoming and were waiting for us upon arrival to show us around. The house is very well equipped, has everything you would need. We were travelling with a toddler and a baby and the house had a lot of baby equipment plus some books and toys which was a lovely touch. It would take about 25/30 minutes to walk in to le bugue but we enjoyed being in the house so much so didn't feel the need to venture out. Linda and John were fantastic and very responsive to any issues (the only issue we had was one fan not working and John came to replace it within an hour of our email!!), however they do not intrude in any way. We hope to return to Maison Jolie in the near future! Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Many thanks for your review and we're delighted you enjoyed our house. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family and look forward to welcoming you again.
Regards Linda & John
Maison Jolie a great holiday location
The house is well designed, well maintained and well equipped, in a convenient and quiet location. The pool is a wonderful amenity when the weather is hot. The owners are extremely helpful. The ability to walk into the village of Le Bugue and to take day trips by car in the Dordogne/Vezere area is an excellent aspect of this rental. We would highly recommend Maison Jolie without hesitation.
Many thanks for your review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family.
Best regards Linda & John
Le Bugue is a bustling town in the Périgord Noir region of the Dordogne and has been inhabited for over a thousand years. It is perhaps best known for its busy 800 year old market selling mouthwatering local produce held every Tuesday, by mandate of the French King in 1319! . Our home is an easy, level walk along the river to bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. Likewise, close by are supermarkets, banks, medical centre (with excellent doctors, some of whom speak English) pharmacy, dentist etc.. During summer there is a regular Tuesday night market which is a fun, simple way to dine where local artisans prepare food to eat on the tables & benches provided by the commune. Most Friday evenings during July & August you can listen to live music (folk, jazz) by the riverside. The area offers many tourist attractions and activities: famous prehistoric cave paintings at Font de Gaume and Lascaux, Les Eyzies is the world famous centre of pre-history and Cro Magnon man whilst caves like the Gouffre de Proumeyssacc, Padiract offer spectacular formations. Other attractions: chateaux, such as Beynac, Castelnaud, museums, historic buildings, the Maison Forte de Reignac, the medieval town of Sarlat, gardens ( Les Jardins suspendus de Marqueyssac, les Jardins d'Eyrignac), the Dordogne & Vézère rivers with their canoe trips and river beaches good for swimming, water & theme parks, a zoological reserve at Calviac with rare and endangered species. The region is also famous for its gastronomy, with a wide choice of high-quality restaurants reasonably priced. Specialities include fois gras, truffles, cepes, magret de canard (duck breasts), wild boar and local trout. It is also a perfect area for hiking, walking and horse riding.
