La Goulette is a beautiful traditional perigordine historic house with a tower, a gorgeous large pool and huge terrace with stunning views. It is set on a hill overlooking the river vimont valley and It is set in the most beautiful countryside near the Vallee D'Homme. It is near Lascaux Montignac, St. Leon sur Vezere, Les Eyzies de Tayac, Rouffignac and Sarlat de Caneda and is near all the famous prehistoric sites like Lascaux, Le Roque Christophe, Le Grotte de Rouffignac, Le Font de Gaume and many more caves and ancient sites.The house is built of mellow golden stone and has a tower and a very spacious living area. As you approach the house, you arrive and enter a stone arch which forms a large courtyard with a lawned area with flowers and a big central tree leading onto a huge terrace with palms, flowers and panoramic views. There are further terraces and a large ice blue private swimming pool with palms and flowers to the side of the house with a dining area, sun terrace with sun loungers around the pool, further sun bathing areas, a raised lawned area above the pool with another table and chairs and at the other end of the pool is the Pool House which is a lovely log cabin with its own verandah, BBQ table and chairs. Inside is a double or two single beds whichever you prefer, fridge and kettle. The property sits in 3 hectares of land and woods, fields, an orchard and a pond. There are many quiet areas to sit and contemplate the view or to read a book in the shade of an acacia tree. For those who love nature, and want a private and quiet retreat from the world, La Goulette is the perfect place. Its also perfect for large house parties, celebrations, weddings and anniversaries. Inside the main house there is a mixture of rustic charm and designer elegance. It has a Fired Earth kitchen, French antique beds, Toile de Jouay wallpaper in the bedrooms, and a large Perigourdine stone fireplace. There are wooden floors throughout except for in the tiled kitchens. There is also a large utility room. There is a ground floor bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, a kingsize bed and a cot. Upstairs there are four more double bedrooms one ensuite, and one of which has also got a cot. There is a large family bathroom with separate shower unit.

If you can tear yourself away from this perfect setting, all “ Les Grands Sites du Perigord” are on your doorstep – La Roque Christophe (Troglodite village in the rock above the river Vezere), Lascaux ( the famous Palaeolithic cave paintings), Le Font de Gaume at Les Eyzies (more cave paintings) La Grotte at Rouffignac and more. Also interesting to explore is the medieval church at Plazac and its cobbled backstreets; the beautiful village of St. Leon sur Vezere; Les Eyzies and the famous medieval town of Sarlat - full of its designer shops and medieval history. There are also many beautiful Chateaux within a short drive, and the beautiful local town of Montignac for the supermarket, banks and riverside restaurants. And for the gourmet food lovers, we have Michelin star restaurants as well as very good traditional Perigourdine restaurants all nearby. This a truly fairy tale, unforgettable experience with towers, chateaux, medieval villages, lakes and the most beautiful rolling hills, river valleys and woods all around you. You will fall in love with La Goulette as we did! Bonne Vacances!

Why Julia Pikal -owner chose Perigord Noir

Both David and I love France, as did my parents. Their dream was to buy a house in France. So when they both sadly died, I decided to make their dream come true and mine too of course! We spent 5 months looking for the house of our dreams. We had nearly given up when on a final trip to the lovely Perigord Noir, we stumbled across la Goulette, It was love at first sight! I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of the location and the view from the huge terrace, that I burst into tears at the thought of not being able to own this house! We had a big birthday celebration on the terrace last July and all our guests also fell in love with La Goulette and the view from the terrace! Being a nature lover, it is wonderful to have red squirrels and deer in our woodland, a variety of frogs and lizards and so many beautiful butterflies.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Anyone who has visited La Goulette always gets excited as they drive up the hill and first see the little estate. Then as they approach the house and cottage joined together by a wisteria covered arch, they are already enchanted. There is a lovely atmosphere at La Goulette and a feeling of space. The brand new swimming pool is a beautiful ice blue colour and there is lots of space with the large gardens, woodland and pond for children to have fun too. Not far away is Etaing du Tamnies for those who like a beach and beach bar. You can walk down to Plazac to buy fresh bread at the Boulangerie, there is a bio-store (mini supermarket) 2 restaurants and bars as well as more shops in nearby Rouffignac, Les Moustiers, St Leon sur Vezere and Montignac.

Amazing French Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Stunning & welcoming house in a breathtaking location! The huge terrace with a number of outdoor eating areas overlooking the idyllic countryside is one of the many highlights, alongside the massive swimming pool & stylish decor throughout. There is plenty of space for large groups and the nearby towns Plazac and Rouffignac are typically french with some amazing restaurants. We all felt incredibly relaxed in and amongst the gorgeous nature. Hosts were very helpful and accommodating - highly recommended to all.

Really gorgeous house both inside and outside in fabulous location. We highly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

There were six of us staying and the experience has been so enjoyable that we've agreed to return next year. The main house is a large, beautiful space, gorgeously furnished with antiques. (We didn't stay in the cottage.) The pool is a good size for swimming and beyond it is the pool house where two of us slept. The owners have taken huge care with the plants that surround the house and the result is stunning. Outside there are three different sitting areas. On the wide terrace is a long table and it's delightful to eat there in the evening and look out onto the view beyond. The house is set in lovely countryside and you're not aware of any houses nearby. But a short walk takes you into the village of Plazac, with its bar restaurant where you can get a good cheap meal. Behind the main street is a lovely old church, little square and cemetery, and the streets surrounding it take you back in time. The owners and their cleaner Christine were really helpful. A fabulous place for a holiday in the Dordogne.

La Goulette is very near all the historic sites - La Grotte de Rouffignac is 4 kms in one direction and La Roque Christopher 4 kms in the other direction. Its also about 4 kms from La Thot, 10 kms from Lascaux (ancient cave paintings) and 45 minutes away from Sarlat and 15 minutes away from Le Eyzies. Its near the beautiful river valley of the Vezere (La Valleé 'Homme) and surrounded by exquisite Chateaux, pretty villages such as St Leon sur Vezere, Fanlac, Beynac (where the film Chocolat was filmed) and many more lovely pretty towns and villages as well as the famous town of Sarlat de Caneda. Everyone who has stayed at La Goulette has talked about one fun they have had Kayaking on the River Vezere, the lovely riverside and village restaurants they have visited and generally how stunningly beautiful this area is.
