Overview

About the property

Very romantic, pure tranquility, nature and yet surrounded by innumerable sights

The 19th century renovated farmhouse 'Laudinie' is beautiful situated on a hill at the end of a dirt road off a quiet country lane. The house is free-standing, amidst 11 hectares of private land. Those seeking peace will find it here. 'Laudinie' is fully protected from prying eyes - perfect for a private, rejuvenating vacation! The generous sunbathing area surrounding the very large pool (20x45ft, up to 12ft deep) invites you to enjoy undisturbed sunbathing or relax in the shade of large trees. The covered BBQ and lounge space allows for grilling even in (rare) uncertain weather conditions. Enjoy enchanting sunsets from the wide-view terrasse which can be accessed through the romantic courtyard or the living room.

Three bedrooms and a fully equipped modern kitchen and bathroom provide all the comfort necessary to never leave the house if you so desire!

Although privately located, the house is centrally situated amidst innumerable attractions and outdoor activities of the Dordogne. The Dordogne is most famous for its worldclass medieval castles (Chateau Castelnaud / Beynac / Milandes / Marqueyssac), medieval towns (Sarlat / Domme / LaRocGageac / Perigueux) and prehistoric sites (Font de Gaume / Lascaux / RocSt.Christophe). Within 10min of the property you can also indulge in numerous outdoor activities such as canoeing, golfing, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, climbing, water and adventure parks etc.

To discover :

Every day of the week a traditional street market is taking place in another romantic medieval town close by. A great opportunity to taste the regional delicacies - a highlight for all gourmets!

Various large and small wineries invite you to taste their produce. Discover the famous wine regions of Bergerac, Monbazillac, Cahors, and Bordeaux and live 'like God in France'.

The region is known the world over for its wealth in prehistoric caves with up to 17,000 years old polychrome works of art (Lascaux 30min, Font de Gaume 10min, Grotte de Rouffignac 10 min), as well as geologically unique stalactite and stalagmite caves (Grotte Grand Roc 10min, Gouffre de Proumeyssac 20min, Gouffre Padirac 1hour).

The village 'Les Eyzies' (10 min) is home to the National Museum of Prehistory and the international exposure and information center 'Pole International de la Prehistoire'.

The medieval castles of 'Chateau Castlenaud' and 'Chateau Beynac' (conquered by Richard the Lionheart) have played crucial roles in the french/english Hundred Years War in the 14th century. Both provide unforgettable visits and great insights into europe's medieval history through museums and fantastic architecture. The 'Chateau des Milandes' and 'Chateau Marqueyssac' are also great highlights that shouldn't be missed.

A large network of hiking trails lead through the whole region. Along wild creeks, through endless chestnut and oak forests, past impressive rock formations and stunning natural landscapes. The property owner's daughter Michela is a professional tour guide and will gladly provide you with options!

There are also seven golf courses in the region, four 9-hole and three 18-hole.

The Dordogne lets children's hearts beat faster, too. The world of dinosaurs and stone age man is approached in creative and interactive ways (e.g. 'Prehisto Park', 'Roc de Cazelle', or the 'Parc du Bournat'). Europe's largest privately owned freshwater aquarium is only 15 km away ('Aquarium du Perigord Noir').

It also has a go-karting park, mini-golf and a fun park with water slides, pony rides, railway etc ('Jacquou Parc'). In addition, there's horse riding and canoeing a stone's throw away.

The ideal holiday region for families with various generations - through the wide range of excursions all ages will find suitable thrills!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of 8 friends, and had a great time. The property was clean and very private, with only nature surrounding it. The view is simply amazing, especially when the sun goes down. The house is very much equipped to stay in it: a barbecue, a large and deep swimming pool, a lot of cooking equipment... This is the perfect place to cook an extensive meal and enjoy your French wine!

However, Laudinie was also well-situated to visit the many wonderful sights the Dordogne has to offer: castles (Castelnaud, Milandes...), gardens (candlelit Marqueyssac), prehistoric caves & parcs, canoe & kayak, Perigueux - not to mention countless charming small villages with historic streets, good restaurants and food markets.

A small downside is the fact that there's only one bathroom and one toilet, and these are both in the same room (which is not always practical with 8 people). Additionally, there's no hallway upstairs, which means that one bedroom is not fully private as people have to walk through it to access their rooms. This is minor though - only small things compared to the beauty and cleanliness of the rest of the house.

As for the owner, she was very organised and available for help. She also responded very quickly to enquiries beforehand.

In summary, very much recommended!

Owner's Response: Es freut mich immer sehr wenn meine Gäste so zufrieden sind und ihre Ferien in "Laudinie" geniessen können. Natürlich ist ein Badezimmer für 8 Personen wenig aber dies steht auch so im Inserat. Es waren schon öfters Gruppen mit so vielen Personen in "Laudinie" und bis anhin war dies nie ein Problem. Aber für die nächste Saison ist ein weiteres Badezimmer in Planung. Das Durchgangszimmer im oberen Stockwerk muss man nur durchqueren wenn man in das hintere Zimmer möchte welches dann wiedrum eine eigene Türe hat. Das Haus bietet enorm viele Möglichkeiten um sich zurück zu ziehen. Auch im Aussenbereich hat man die Wahl zwischen Innenhof, Terrasse, Poolbereich, Garten und Grill-Lounge. Somit hat man auch bei so vielen Personen immer die Möglichkeit ein ruhiges Plätzlein zu finden.

Fabulous family fun in jaw dropping location

Every year it is a challenge to find a suitable spot for our family holiday. With 3 kids, their grandparents, and our two lovely labs, finding a place where everyones needs are fulfilled and nobody gets bored can be tricky to say the least.

Laudinie gave us the space to do just that. The adults had a magnificent time exploring the prehistoric caves and historical sights that are close by, not to mention the amazing local cuisine. If you like wine and cheese your heading to the right place believe me, the food and craft markets in the charming local towns are simply amazing.

The kids went wild for the sports on offer in the region. Not a single complaint of boredom (unheard of from my lot) for the whole holiday. In the end though, the house is the real attraction. The jaw dropping views, the friendly old horses, the open fire, the fact that you cant see a trace of civilisation apart from a cow farmer on the opposite side of the valley. All in all, pure magic. Imagine the kids going wild in the pool, my parents relaxing on the balcony or in the garden with a glass of wine and their books, and my wife and I floating between them and the kitchen (or more often the outside barbeque). It was a truly blissful time. I can not recommend it more highly.

Traumhaftes Ferienhaus in wunderschöner Gegend

  • 5 of 5

Bei unserem 1. Aufenthalt im September 2014 in Laudinie schworen wir uns, dass wir wiederkommen. Auch im Juni 2016 erlebten wir wieder eine genauso unvergessliche Zeit. Das Haus bzw. Anwesen beinhaltet, alles was man für einen entspannten und erholsamen Urlaub braucht; unglaublich schöner eingezäunter Garten (unser Hund konnte sich frei bewegen und genoss den grosszügigen Garten mit viel Wiese und schönen grossen Bäumen), sensationeller und sehr grosser Pool mit stimmungsvoller Beleuchtung, wahnsinnig liebevoll eingerichtetes Haus, Küche komplett ausgestattet und mit sehr schönem Geschirr, so dass es richtig Spass macht zu kochen, tolle Terrasse und andere Plätze im Garten, von denen man die Sonnenaufgänge sowie Untergänge geniessen konnte. Wir konnten täglich draussen essen, mit Blick auf die schöne Umgebung, den Pool und den Garten. Rund um das Anwesen hat es Natur pur mit viel Wald und Wiesen, die nächste Ortschaft Rouffignac ist ca. 10 Autominuten entfernt, was überhaupt nicht stört. Am Sonntag findet dort jeweils ein toller kleiner Markt statt.

Für uns waren neben dem wunderschönen Haus auch die vielen Märkte in der Umgebung ein Grund, warum wir wieder nach Laudinie kamen. Täglich finden Märkte in der Umgebung statt. Ein weiterer Grund für ein Wiederkommen war aber auch die Vermieterin Franziska. Sie ist die perfekte Gastgeberin; charmant, hilfsbereit, fröhlich. Sie kann tolle Tipps für Ausflüge und Restaurants geben (im Haus hat es übrigens auch ganz viele Infos parat), sie reinigt täglich den Pool, wenn nötig, aber ohne dass man sie sieht. Sie ist sofort zur Stelle, wenn man Hilfe braucht und schafft es, dass man sich sofort zu Hause fühlt und eigentlich nie mehr weg will. Sie hat uns mit unserem Hund sogar zum Tierarzt begleitet, als dieser notfallmässig krank wurde. Danke Franziska für alles, was du für uns und vor allem für unsere Hündin getan hast!!! Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder und empfehlen das Feriendomizil uneingeschränkt weiter! R. und A. und S. grüssen dich herzlich :-)

Ruhe und Natur pur!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns rundherum wohl gefühlt!!!!!. Netter Empfang durch Michaela Thomann, die Tochter, die uns alles erklärt hat und uns noch Tipps für die Umgebung zu erkunden mitgegeben hat. Es gibt viel zu sehen und zu erkunden: Kanu fahren, Besuch der Höhlen, Chateau de Castelnaud und Beyzac.....Sarlat, St Leon / Vezere.....usw

Ein gemütliches Häuschen mit allem was man braucht- Küche gut ausgestattet, großes Bad ( leider nur eins, falls man mit Freunden kommen möchte)Alles sauber und mit einer herrlichen Terrasse und dann der Pool! Wirklich riesig und abends beleuchtet. Nach unseren Ausflügen haben wir uns immer darauf gefreut.

Jeden 2. Tag wurde der Pool gereinigt.Die Lage ist einfach herrlich- Natur pur!!! Wir würden sofort wieder kommen!
