See each cottages photos and details here on Owners Direct by cottage name at Domaine de Leygue.
All cottages have their own private parking grove, accessed from the tree lined driveway into Domaine de Leygue’s main courtyard. Domaine de Leygue is exclusively for adults, so you can always be sure of a peaceful destination. At any one time, there will only be a maximum of 8 guests in the grounds, 2 adults per cottage, and so with a choice of two swimming pools, you may have a pool all to yourself at times! You can wander in the gardens, sky-gaze in the hammock, or snooze under the trees. An abundance of wildlife is part of this stunning location, and our friendly Labrador, one inquisitive cat, and our own organic chickens may want to say hello also! Domaine de Leygue is a 200yr old farm, and is situated in rolling green countryside just outside the pretty village of Bourniquel, near Lalinde on the River Dordogne, surrounded by the peace and tranquillity of farmers fields, woods, and a local herd of beautiful russet cattle.
Lalinde, 4km away, has all the shops and facilities you're likely to need plus there's an abundance of lovely restaurants in the nearby villages, with Bergerac town and airport only 25 minutes drive away. The pretty village of Molieres only a 5 minute drive, and is just one of many Bastide villages along quiet rural roads. There are numerous walking, cycling, driving routes all in the immediate vicinity, encompassing many villages and towns….we have bicycles here for guests use. It is the perfect location to visit the many morning markets, Marche Nocturnes, festivals, street fairs and more.
Domaine de Leygue also has a small gymnasium, well equipped with a cross trainer, rowing machine and free weights.

We have just returned from two idyllic weeks at Domains de Leygue. The gardens, pools and cottages have had care lavished on them by their owners and from the moment you arrive the unwinding process can begin.
The surrounding area has so much to offer, interesting markets, stunning villages, châteaux with gardens, canoe trips to name but a few.
The owners, Lisanne and Den, are perfect hosts. Warm and welcoming, always ready with a useful hint or offer of help they also ensure that your peace and privacy are maintained.
We enjoyed many personal touches such as fresh eggs from Lisanne's hens and a lovely welcome snack with wine when we arrived.
The cottage was fully equipped and furnished to an extremely high standard, cool on very hot days and cosy if it decided to rain.
The pools were immaculate and the sun loungers were extremely comfortable. Barbecue, bicycles, parasol, hammock were all available so there were plenty of options depending how energetic (or not) you felt!
We cannot recommend this holiday destination and its owners highly enough and we will certainly be returning.
We LOVED having Douglas and Heather stay at Domaine de Leygue! As guests, it was a delight to have their appreciation of, what we feel is, a beautiful place to holiday in France, and our cottages and gardens!
If 'perfect' holiday guests could be found, it is surely Douglas and Heather, and we were all so sorry say goodbye, including our labrador and cat.
We always try to help our guests have a memorable holiday, and to have such wonderful feedback is terrific, and inspires us to keep Domaine de Leygue just the way it is! Thank you to you both.
