This is a home more than a vacation house, whether you are a couple or a party of nine, you will find the house comfortable and inviting. The house offers all conveniences set in a charming Villa perched over the Dordogne River. A true escape! As you drive through the wrought iron gates under the tiled portico your vacation dream awaits. The house is in the classical Perigordian style of golden stones and tiled roof. It has been renovated with taste and remains true to the era with a turning oak staircase in the entry and revealed stones throughout. The Villa offers four bedrooms, three on the 2nd level and a fourth charming attic bedroom offering two sleeping areas. There are two lovely baths on the second level with handmade tiles, one of them connects to the master suite. The upstairs is a charming attic and can also be an inviting play room for your children, with toys and games provided. It could also serve as a office for those wishing some quiet time. There is a formal salon for dining which has a view of the stunning staircase. The salon has french doors which open onto the terrace and its double staircase. The kitchen American is connected to a family room by a beamed portico. It opens onto the covered porch through french doors for an indoor/outdoor experience. The house is set in a manicured and gated property with a stunning terrace overlooking the river, a charming porch connected to the kitchen and a fenced play yard for the children.

About Cynthia Royce

We lived at the property for six years and raised our daughter there. It was a true haven for us then and every chance we get to visit.

Cynthia Royce purchased this villa in 2002

Why Cynthia Royce chose Vitrac

We wanted a home on the river, yet close to amenities. Sarlat is one of the most beautiful towns that we encountered on our many travels throughout France and the region is utterly beautiful. A delight awaits at every turn.

The property is walled and gated so you have lots of privacy and security for children to run and play and enjoy the garden. The house offers three bedrooms on the main floor and a charming bedroom, attic space on the top floor. This is a perfect space for children or teenagers to have their own space to play.

The house has been restored with attention to all details to keep the property in the true Perigordan style. The golden stones have been revealed in the attic as well as the living room and beautiful curving staircase area.

Because the house is in Vitrac it is away from the crowds of Sarlat yet close to all the attractions that abound in the region. You can visit La Roque Gageac in minutes or Beynac, Castlenaud.

What makes this villa unique

The house is on the river yet only 6 km from Sarlat. You can choose to just stay at Villa Page and walk to restaurants, kayak down the river or venture to countless activities.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This villa in central France is a real treasure. We stayed for three nights and loved the interior as well as the surroundings. It was clean, very pretty and well equipped. Especially the kitchen is perfect for anyone who loves cooking. The nature and culture that can be visited nearby are diverse and interesting. We can only recommend a stay with Cynthia, who has always been very friendly and helpful.

Thumbs up! Sebastian

Maison très agréable, on a passé une super semaine en famille avec des amis On espère revenir !

  • 5 of 5

Belle maison confortable et bien équipée, très agréable

Les meubles sont choisis avec goût

La vue est magnifique de la terrasse

Seule la proximité de la route et d'un camping peuvent être un peu gênants mais ça dépend des jours et nous n'en n'avons pas souffert

Très beau parc aménagé pour les enfants

Ils aimeront aussi le grenier avec ses nombreux jouets et jeux

Bref un bon séjour dans une magnifique région où on a hâte de revenir
