|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Les Tourterelles Apartment occupies half of the First floor of a C17th Village house, and was completely renovated in 2014 by an expert Restoration Artisan. He took great care to retain all of the original features in order to give visitors a memorable stay in a truly Authentic French village house. For your comfort all new facilities, plumbing and electrics have been installed.
Understated but tastefully decorated, the Apartment has beautiful views out over the walled garden and plunge pool, rooftops, neighbouring gardens and fields..
It is very spacious (almost 50 sq metres) and is luminous with high wood beam ceilings. The main Salon is open- plan. The bedroom area is romantic and spacious with soft lighting and is made private with heavy linen curtains. It has real opening windows, morning sun and a view out over the guests courtyard. Thick stone walls keep the apartment cool during the hot months. There are lots of big windows that open and heavy wooden shutters to keep the Summer heat out.
The Apartment has its own private entrance via a wide external stone staircase with a little Terrace at the top. Right next to these stairs with rambling vines is a ground floor Courtyard for guests only to sit outside with Coffee and Croissants in the morning sun.
Guests are welcome to use the Plunge Pool which is shared with the house.
Les Tourterelles is equally a lovely place during the Winter months when central heating, full insulation and new double glazed windows keep it warm and cosy.
The fit out is very high quality: The supremely comfortable Bed 160cm (King size) is a Simmons top range and is dressed with white French Linen dried in the sun. There is a choice of real, rectangular Australian Jumbuck wool pillows, or pillows with synthetic filling. A generous supply of fresh Bath Towels and Pool towels is included. A well equipped little kitchen means you can eat at home if you need a night off from eating out in the dozens of restaurants nearby. All levels of dining out are available nearby, from casual little bistros with outdoor dining by the river or a Michelin star restaurant at the bottom of the hill in Daglan.
The Lobby area allows plenty of luggage storage.
The bathroom is beautiful, immaculate and unusually large for France(10 sq m) with Double Handbasins, Italian Shower and a Full size bath with shower attachment - and a view to die for.
High wooden beam ceilings ensure that the apartment is luminous, fresh and airy, and no risk of hitting your head on those beautiful but sometimes uncomfortably low beams one encounters in many old places.
Even though it is in the centre of the Village Les Tourterelles and the environment around it is very peaceful. There is almost no noise other than birdsong and Cicadas in Summer, which is wonderful for a good nights sleep.
There is enough space for just one car tucked up against our old stone wall.
Les Tourterelles is really an Apartment just for two people and not suitable for children.
I came to live in France from Australia three years ago, and almost by accident was fortunate enough to find this absolutely charming house in the Dordogne which I love. Actually, friends found it for me, and it was big enough to create a private apartment upstairs so others can experience this very beautiful part of the world too. Now the house has a whole new life, so do we in this lovely village with it's wonderful people. I am an ex Restaurateur, and this is the perfect place for a Foodie. And I still manage to get down to the Pacific too, so it's a wonderful life.
Annie Taylor purchased this apartment in 2013
In France they say that when a person is looking for a home there has to be a 'Coup de Coeur'. Some very lovely friends of mine found this house for me, it was quite simply our Coup de Coeur.
Le Peyruzel is a little Village oozing with authenticity, charm and life, even in the Winter, and our house with its private Apartment reflects this charming ambience.
The owner was extremely hospitable and everything we needed including linen, towels, soap, tea and coffee was there on our arrival. This was perhaps one of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had. The views were perfect, the food was amazing, the weather was incredible and people of the area were very welcoming. We will be back.
Located in a picturesque hilltop village within easy reach of many of the best places to visit in the Dordogne. This charming apartment has been renovated to a very high standard, retaining all the original character and features. It was the perfect place to retreat to and relax in after exploring the region. It is spacious, peaceful and extremely comfortable and well equipped. The luxury bed ensured we slept really well and we loved the spacious bathroom and generous sized bath. Annie, the owner, couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful ensuring that we made the most of our stay. A five star experience and highly recommended.
We loved our stay in this very special place and want to go back soon! . To be able to have such comfort in a 17th century home is amazing! Besides the incredible renovation that completely keeps the character without sacrificing modern conveniences, Annie has managed to thoughtfully include everything you need for a delightful stay. Once you figure out where you are you soon realize there is so much to do within 30 minutes of the home. We loved our lunches in Le Petit Paris in Daglan, Lo Gorissado near St. Andre de Allas and Cabanoix & Chataine in Domme. Annie's warm hospitality, the perfect setting of this charming apartment set in this old stone village, and the proximity to the delights of the Dordogne region make this an absolute winner that we highly recommend!
lorsque j'ai réservé cette jolie maison sur internet je pensais que ça allait être sympa et en effet ce séjour a tenu toutes ses promesses. Promesse d'un lieu calme charmant et reposant dans un hameau à l'abris de l'agitation, promesse d'une campagne magnifique dont la lumière dorée nous a ravis, promesse de culture dans l'un des berceaux de notre humanité mais surtout nous avons rencontré une belle personne. Merci Annie d'être venue d'aussi loin pour nous avoir offert tous ces moments délicieux. Nous reviendrons. C'est certain. Isa et Gerald
Très bon séjour dans un cadre remarquable, l'appartement est très spacieux et très bien agencé. La piscine est très agréable. Annie nous a accueilli chaleureusement et a été de bons conseils quant aux activités et restaurants à découvrir. Nous recommandons cette location pour les adeptes du calme et de la quiétude.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette petite maison. Nous y étions comme chez nous et reçus par Annie comme des amis.
Nous recommandons vivement cette location qui est très bien située pour faire des visites en Périgord Noir.
Maison très propre avec un bon lit et une très grande et belle salle de bain. Nous n'avons manqué de rien à part le soleil ce qui ne nous a pas permis d'essayer la piscine.
Merci Annie et sans doute à une autre fois.

Le Peyruzel is a real find, one of those truly authentic, peaceful and charming Hilltop French Villages which still has a working Farm, Plantations of Walnut trees, Sunflower fields and Truffiers. The Historic and beautifully preserved Medieval Chateau de Peyruzel still stands guard over the village, its people and the Ceou Valley below, just as it has done for Centuries.
The Perigord Noir, heart of the Dordogne is famous for its Chateaux, Historic Caves, Food, Wine, Markets, Brocantes, Beautiful Bastide Towns, Rivers and unspoiled Rural splendour.
The major attractions of Beynac, La Roque Gageac and Sarlat la Caneda (to name just a few) are all within an easy 20 min drive along the Dordogne River. The magnificent Bastide town of Domme is 5 minutes away across the Valley, and Castelnaud la Chapelle a lovely 9km drive down through the Ceou Valley.
Markets - In Summer there is a market somewhere every day only minutes away with great local produce. For the Antiques and Flea market Enthusias there are Brocantes and Vide Greniers close by right throughout the Summert. Many Villages within easy range of Le Peyruzel have Night Markets (the closest is St Pompon at 9 kms) which are fun and a great chance to share a big table and mix with the locals.
Boulangeries -at Castelnaud the boulangerie is exceptional, in Cenac the boulangerie is fantastic.
Restaurants - there are hundreds, from inexpensive casual little bistros to Michelin star restaurants in exquisite settings. In summer it is sometimes a good idea to book in the Star rated restaurants to avoid missing out though.
With so many wonderful and interesting things to do in this area the Dordogne can become a bit hectic in high summer, and even driving on the picturesque winding roads can be a little bit tiring when it's really hot.
Les Tourterelles is the perfect place after a busy day to cool off in the Plunge Pool, share a Baguette and some delicious cheese, take an evening stroll through the peaceful village and watch a gorgeous sunset, then fall asleep in a wonderfully comfortable bed to the sound of crickets singing.
