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

Why Linda Pretty chose Perigord Noir

Over the years we have regularly used house rentals and designed this house to offer the very best facilities to our guests.

Wonderful house and setting

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

It was ok!

  • 3 of 5

It was ok.

The welcome when we arrived was not the most welcoming!

We did not like having to open and close the pool, along with the cushions and umbrellas each time we used them.

Kitchen was well set up.

Location of the house to the village was good. It could be walked easily.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We pride ourselves in providing privacy associated with the exclusive use of a rented house and secluded pool. I’m glad you liked our kitchen and location though. Other guests also say they are two of our many attributes. John & Linda

Lovely spacious villa in a quiet area. It was very well equiped with everything we needed and probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed. The pool was the perfect temperature. John and Linda were on hand for queries but not intrusive. They booked us a table in a restaurant and even laid on fireworks in La Bugue! La Bugue has plenty of shops, restaurants and a market. It is within walking distance with the option of a short walk along the road or a longer walk along the river (although you would want to take the car if you had a supermaket shop to bring back). We would definitely like to stay again if we return to this area. Thank you!

Ideal vacation house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Maison Jolie is a well equipped and very clean vacation villa with plenty of room for large families. The owners, Linda and John, are welcoming and helpful in sharing their local knowledge. Fresh food and the weekly market in the village of Le Bugue is just a short walk away. Canoeing trips can be started from, or finished in Le Bugue. We enjoyed very much our stay.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday. The house is located in a lovely position with open relaxing views, yet close to all facilities, and interesting places to visit. The house was spotlesslying clean and perfect for our party of three generations. We were greeted by John and Linda who made us very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. We had very bad weather, but had one of our best holidays at Maison Jolie. We would all highly recommend it, it is a beautiful house and just as described.

Lovely retreat in le Bugue

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 sisters & spouses. Maison Jolie suited our requirements perfectly. It was close to shops & major roads but just far enough out of town to make us feel like we had our own quiet oasis.

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.
