Overview

About the property

In beautiful and tranquil location

Rural but near amenities. Airport 8 km. Town 5 km. Boulangerie 3 km. Wheelchair access. Self catering gite with private pool. Farmhouse accommodates up to 8 (2 double, 2 twin rooms) with a studio annex can accommodate 2 more (double room). Linen and towels included. Private garden with pool (8m by 4m plus semicircular steps) and BBQ. Owners nearby and helpful. Child friendly: toys inside and out. 2 cots and high chair available. Other sports nearby: golf, lake swimming, walking, cycling, canoeing and fishing. Lots of châteaux, caves and restaurants nearby. Markets with fresh, local produce. Lovely bread and cakes from local boulangerie. Night markets in summer. Farm registered with Chambre d'Agriculture. Beautiful views.

What to do on the farm and nearby: On our farm you can walk the scenic 46 acre private land and river frontage with a lot of wildlife to see (especially deer and buzzards). There are orchids (Early Purple Orchid and Bee Orchid) and other wild flowers to be found in the Spring; we have found Purple Toothwort and the Cowslips do well. We have a cat and some chickens.

Close by there is a large choice of restaurants and many vineyards, forests, chateaux, castles, caves, old bastide towns and the Dordogne and Vezere rivers where you can hire canoes or enjoy the scenery.

The pre-history sites at Lascaux and along the Vezere are most impressive. In July and August many villages have open-air evening markets where you purchase local produce (salad, duck or beef with chips, moules or oysters, strawberries etc.) to eat at communal tables. Great fun and a lovely atmosphere.

Try our Friday to Friday booking and save on your travel costs.

Spring has arrived in the Dordogne.

This year the spring flowers seem better and more abundant than ever. The purple toothwort is abundant, the cowslips are looking particularly fresh and the orchids are appearing.

Notes:

Being close to the kitchen and the BBQ it is well suited for eating out and sitting afterwards with a glass of wine. Our Farm has some well selected horses and ponies to give riders of all abilities the possibility to ride. Louise, who is the wife/mother of the family Bowles of the farm teaches riding and escorts the hacks. She is qualified with the British Horse Society and is registered with them and La Jeunesse et des Sports. The farm has 19 hectares (46 acres) for use by riders or for the more experienced (hacks are assessed first) we go further afield into the vines or forests. Past the chateaux and villages. You can walk our scenic 46 acre private land and river frontage with a lot of wildlife to see (especially deer and buzzards) and wild flowers such as orchids and purple toothwort.

Lovely French Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We came here for a family holiday and it was just perfect. The house is big and very rustic - the pool is nice and the surrounding area is stunning. Very close to the airport which was great (although we never heard a plane overhead) and close to Bergerac town too which is lovely. John, the owner met us on arrival and was nothing short of amazing - so helpful and kind. Recommended some great things to do which we did do and loved (Canoeing on the Dordogne, visiting a fantastic local chateau and local night markets etc). We had a wonderful week. Thank you very much!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house, and the location! Picture meadows, vineyards, new baby horses, and plenty of sunshine and quiet. John and Louise, the owners, were very gracious and helpful to all of us. The house is a beautiful French farm house, spacious and immaculate. The property is rolling meadows and forest, with a lot of pre-history right in the area. The house is in the country, but only five minutes from handy shopping in the large town of Bergerac. It was easy to get to a main auto route, for longer day trips, and the local village boulangerie had marvelous croissants and bread. Several people in our party went riding, and really enjoyed it. This is a wonderful vacation spot. We recommend it most highly as a wonderful and memorable place to stay. We loved taking the day trips to see the prehistoric caves and the medieval towns, and to eat in the restaurants, and visit the local markets and village celebrations. Each day when we got home, we loved sitting around the pool!
