Why Elizabeth & Malcolm Yeomans chose Perigord Noir

Wee took 3 years searching for just the right place, as we drove up the drive into the garden we knew we had found the right place

Despite the amount of work needed it was like a little piece of heaven.

What makes this cottage unique

Secluded and peaceful being set in almost 4 acres of gardens and grounds it is right in the heart of the Dordogne and within easy reach of the caves, chateaux and vineyards.

Lovely characterful house with modern facilities

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have just returned from our second holiday at Les Bressattes. We love the area and this is the perfect B&B, supberb food, fantastic hosts, and a beautiful heated swimming pool, perfect for a lazy dip after a hard days sightseeing! Elizabeth and Malcolm ensure their guests have a wonderful holiday and nothing is too much trouble. We are very much looking forward to our next visit.

Super vacances en famille dans un cadre idyllique

  • 5 of 5

Superbe gite situe a 30 mn de la plupart des curiosités touristiques. Il se trouve au calme au milieu de la foret. Il possède une superbe piscine. C'est l'endroit idéal pour des vacances en famille avec visite le matin et piscine, sieste l'après-midi. Dommage qu'il n'y a pas plus de français. Les propriétaires sont des gens très gentils et au petit soin.

Taste great wines at the nearby vineyards and enjoy the wonderful cusine of the area at any of the many local restaurants

The area is famous for beautiful and historic villages nestling in the most wonderful scenery.
