Beautiful house, idyllic location. Book it!
We spent two weeks at Le Presbytere in May 2017 and it couldn't have been better. The house is beautiful inside and out and the grounds very well kept. Although we were there in early summer, the weather was hot and so we made the most of the pool (very clean with cover) and the many outdoor seating areas and barbecue in the evenings.
The rooms inside are well furnished (although maybe the living area needs one or two more chairs if there are four or more people staying?) and the kitchen well equipped. We took advantage of the chef that Philippe recommends in the house details on this page and we had a fantastic meal cooked for us one evening, which was a real treat. The bedrooms are beautiful and the air conditioning a real bonus when the weather is hot if you are staying upstairs.
There is a washing machine and tumble drier in an outhouse which is always useful if you are there for some time. The garden is secluded withe ample parking and Philippe, whilst he came to mow the lawn and treat the pool when we were there, was charming and helpful at all times.
The surrounding area is fantastic to explore with amazing scenery, castles, walks by the river, beautiful villages and a multitude of fabulous brasseries and restaurants in nearby towns and villages. Nadaillac itself has a wonderful village restaurant which you can walk to for dinner and when the weather is good, eat outside. We travelled with our dog and he was made to feel welcome everywhere we ate, which made our stay even more pleasurable.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Le Presbytere. It really is as good as the pictures make out.
Dear Madame Catherine Woolf,
Your review are so nice !
Thank you so much, that great !
You will be always very welcome at the house.
All my very best regars.
A month in Le Prestbytre
We chose Le Prestbytre based on our experience of Andreuilles where we spent a week in August 2017. Please see my separate review for this house.
My wife and I are keen cyclists and our prior research indicated that there are many routes for both cycling types in the LOT. Note. For 10 Euros, in the local tourist office in Souillac you can pick up 'Les Boucles Lotoises' - a pack of 39 circuits of VTT routes, graded green, blue, red and black! We tried several which were all good and well sign-posted.
However, whilst good cycling may have been one of our main reasons for choosing Le Prestbytre, it wasn't the only one. Our wish list included the following:-
Peace and Tranquility
Heated Pool with exclusive use
No close neighbours
A 'cooks' kitchen as we do a lot of it
We were at the house for month of June 2017 and from the moment we walked in, to the day of our departure, everything about our stay in this house was perfect.
The weather during our vacation was sunny and hot for the first 3.5 weeks, so we spent our days either cycling, canoeing on the Dordogne, site seeing or simply relaxing by the pool which is excellent - warm, clear and deep. A new automatic pool cover has recently been installed.
The beds are very comfortable and at night it is silent. Because it was so hot, we made use of the air conditioning (which is in every bedroom) which meant we got a good night's sleep.
My favourite room is the kitchen which although quite small, is well designed with all the equipment you need. It has both an induction and gas hob and dishwasher. There is also a room in the courtyard with a washing machine and tumble drier.
We ate out at the village restaurant Le Chastrusse on 4 occasions and were never disappointed. If the weather is kind on a Saturday night, Mr Chasstrusse, the chef, owner and Mairie plays his accordion to diners which is an experience!
Phillipe, the owner, was available when we needed him, which wasn't often. When he needed to come to the house, he respected our privacy and always asked if it was convenient. He provided a couple of bikes for our guests so we were all able to enjoy the cycling. He is a perfect host and nothing is too much trouble.
I know I may have repeated what others have already said, but you will NOT be disappointed if you choose Le Prestbytre

A perfect hideaway :-)
Wer Ruhe sucht, ist in diesem wunderschönen Haus absolut richtig. Wir (Eltern, zwei Kinder, ein Aupair und Hund) und ein befreundetes Ehepaar haben dieses Jahr zwei wunderbare Wochen dort verbringen dürfen. Dieses authentische und aufwendig und viel mit Blick fürs Detail eingerichtete Haus lässt keine Wünsche offen. Dem Charme dieses alten Hauses kann sich wohl niemand entziehen. Man merkt deutlich, dass der Besitzer, Herr Bappel, sich vorab sehr viele Gedanken gemacht hat und wohl auch an Kosten für die Restaurierung nicht gespart hat. Die Einrichtung ist vollständig und sehr umfangreich, aber dennoch nicht übertrieben modern sondern recht authentisch. Es gab nichts, was wir nicht vermisst hätten. Besonders die Raumgestaltung der Schlafräume im Obergeschoss ist märchenhaft schön und romantisch.
Das großen Wohnzimmer mit dem riesigen offenen Kamin bietet sieben Personen mehr als genügend Platz und die gemeinsamen Mahlzeiten am der großen Tafel in Nähe des Kamins lässt einen die Zeit vergessen.
Das Haus selbst liegt absolut ruhig und lädt so wirklich zum Erholen ein. Leider konnten wir im März natürlich den wunderschönen Pool noch nicht nutzen, aber jene Gäste, die über den Sommer anreisen, werden ihn sicherlich ausgiebig genießen.
Landschaftlich ist es wunderschön und man sollte die Zeit dort auch nutzen, sich die vielfältigen Kulturangebote nicht entgehen zu lassen. Wir waren täglich unterwegs und haben die historischen Stätten im groben Umkreis von ca. 150 km besichtigt. Von jung bis alt, es ist für jeden etwas dabei.
Wir alle sind uns einig, dass dies einer der schönsten und erholsamsten Urlaub war (zumindest, seitdem wir Kinder haben ;-)) und wir werden dieses Haus sicherlich als eines der schönsten Ferienressorts gut im Gedächtnis behalten und bei Gelegenheit sicherlich gerne wieder hierher zurückkehren.
Besonders zu erwähnen ist auch die freundliche und hilfsbereit Art von Frau Delmas, der Hausverwalterin vor Ort, sowie die stetige Fürsorge von Herrn Bappel, der uns mehrmals während unseres Aufenthaltes telefonisch kontaktierte um sicherzustellen, dass es uns an nichts fehlt. Man merkt, dass Herr Bappel sich diesem Haus mit Leib und Seele verschrieben hat und dies spiegelt dieses tolle Feriendomizil absolut wider.
Lieber Herr Bappel, vielen Dank dafür, dass Sie dieses Haus so wunderbar erhalten, und wir wünschen Ihnen noch viele Gäste, die Le Presbytere genauso lieben und schätzen lernen wie wir.
Dear Madame, Monsieur Hoffmeister,
That so nice to read your coment this evening.
That make me so happy and so pround about our house.
Thank you so, so much !
I feel so good and I am very exiting to keep going like this to make my guest so glad .
All my very best regards.
This has been our second year at the Presbythere and still it was as magical and wonderful as the first time.
The surroundings are just magnificent. Our neighbors are: a 17h century castle and a beautiful gothic chapel on the left whose bell rings faithfully twice a day. The little village of Nadaillac is quiet with a simple but delicious restaurant, don't worry you'l, find all the necessities in Souillac which is only fifteen minutes away by car. There is also a plethora of farmers markets in all the villages surrounding the Presbythere.
The house is majestuous and yet feels homey and comfortable ; most rooms are ensuite and we never encountered any problems with arragment considering the number of guests. Each room is well appointed with sheets, comporter, blankets and plenty of towels in the bathrooms.
The kitchen is a delight with a beautiful view and is fit with you'll need to prepare a delicious diner( if you are into it !) or a complete breakfast with the croissants delivered to the house from the restaurant , La Chastrusse, right in town.
Marie and her husband Maurice, the caretakers will welcome you with kindness
and warmth and will always be available if you need anything.
Philippe, the owner, is a pleasure to deal with, always answering any questions very promptly and will make sure that you sejour will be an unforgetable experience.
We really have nothing négative to say about this rental or about our stay in the region as a matter of fact we already reserved for next year and look forward to settle in one more time.
Five stars all the way!
Merci beaucoup Monsieur Laurent Paul de vos compliments.
Ils me touchent énormément et me donnent du courage pour continuer à vouloir faire plaisir et donner du bonheur à tous les prochains locataires.
Mille mercis encore .
Lovely and peaceful house to share with friends
In May, we had a brilliant week at Le Presbytere with both our families and a few friends. The weather was a perfect 22 to 26 degrees all week. So we lounged by the pool, or explored the areas castles and walks. The house is fantastic. Very spacious and easy to enjoy. The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. We are looking forward to return next year ! Just beautiful. Can't recommend this place enough. Loved it!
Fantastic place, heated pool perfect, quality5*
Fantastic Place !
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.
Philippe 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 heated 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.
We are in Dordogne vallées near Souillac (5km) and between Sarlat (15 km) and Rocamadour (12km). The river Dordogne are at 2km from the house; All site like Beynac, Dome, La Roque Gageac, Lascaux, Les Eyzies are at less tham 30 minutes drive. The house is on one of three hilltop villages within sight (and a short drive) of each other. The beautiful village of Nadaillac captivates the visitor with deer, flower displays and an excellent restaurant. Its illuminated church tower is a landmark at night. St Julien, with fresh bread daily, offers several excellent restaurants. The house, Presbytere, is perched atop Escamps, a hamlet of just a few houses, free from intrusion and visitor activity. An enjoyable 30 minute drive to the south lies the medieval town of Sarlat; a similar distance to the west is Les Eyzies, the ‘capital of prehistory’, while to the north are the celebrated caves of Lascaux, where images of bison and deer. And Rocamadour at 30 mn, one of the most wonderfull village. Other Activities: CANOE FISHING WINE TRUFFE Golf: 3 golfs very near 10km, 20 km and 25 km. 18 holes beatifull contryside
