About the property

House in Daglan, Nr. Sarlat, Dordogne, Aquitaine, France - Secluded But Within 5 Minutes Of Picturesque Village And Shops, 10 Minutes To The River Dordogne

Strikingly stylish in an enviable and beautiful location, this property has been restored to a high standard in 2014. Large open plan living areas and well proportioned bedrooms give a real sense of light and space. This has been accentuated by the white washed walls and south facing rooms overlooking the terraces, gardens and heated pool. La Badoussie is a Perigordian stone house with attached converted barn providing 5 generous bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 reception rooms and a modern well-equipped kitchen. There's a lot of space for children too: in addition to the pool they will love playing in the lawned gardens or exploring the wooded areas beyond. La Badoussie is set within the Perigord Noir, famed for its history, cuisine, châteaux and stunningly pretty villages. The house is 4km from the famous Perigordian village of Daglan, 10 km from the River Dordogne and 20km from the Renaissance town of Sarlat.

Idyllic property for a large family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent just over a week at the property in mid-June. As a family of 4 with the grandparents in tow it was a marvellous base from which to explore the picturesque area just south of the Dordogne river. The quality of the finish in the property, the space and the amenities were second to none. The owners were very flexible and were an invaluable help when we realised we had left something of value in the property. The property would work very well for large groups / multi-generational. Of particular note were the views across the rolling hills - easy to spend hours looking out from the pool! In terns of local attractions the local town of Daglan was beautiful and had some excellent restaurants / Sunday market. Our favourite was the bakery in Chateau Castelnaud which was a daily favourite! Thank you and we hope to be back again soon

Stunning and beautifully renovated

Homely, peaceful, beautifully presented,and well equipped in a stunning location with very fine country views. Whilst we were 4 couples it would be ideal for families. The owners were very helpful and on arrival the property was clean and the beds were very comfortable. the best we have stayed in

I Want to Keep La Badoussie a Secret Just for Us

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 that booked nearly 12 months in advance to stay for a week. We were firstly captured by the wonderful photos on Owners Direct and the space this house would provide for us. When we arrived we all looked at one another and knew we had made exactly the right choice. The owners were more than helpful in every way leading up to our stay by giving us very detailed instructions, directions and advising us of places to visit. The house was decorated to a very high standard and all bedrooms were so very comfortable. We had minor hiccups with the swimming pool cover but this was dealt with immediately on contacting the owners, nothing was a problem. The only thing that was missing was a toaster but I suppose we were in France. Our last night sitting outside on the verandah we were visited by wild deer, spectacular. Thank you so much for letting us stay and we all decided that we would return.

Simply astounding, and much bigger than expected.

  • 5 of 5

This house is just fabulous. It takes your breath away when you step inside. It's furnished to a very high standard and is much bigger than it appears in the photos. It's location is also first class - close to the river, castles, and bike riding. Frankly, look no further!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely house. The facilities were perfect. The owners had thought of everything even down to the torches on the bedside tables in case of a power cut. The house was spacious and so arranged that people could have their own space. The views from the house were lovely. The family loved the swimming pool. We loved Daglan with its two very good restaurants, the boulangerie, small supermarket and its weekly market. We would really recommend this house and hope to go again in the future.

Simply Stunning

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend 'La Badoussie' highly enough.

From the photographs (which are very accurate), we had high expectations of this property and we were not disappointed. We were overwhelmed by how beautiful the property is and by the wonderful location too. The views are breathtaking and there are many lovely villages within a short drive (Domme and La Roque-Gageac were particular favourites of ours). A very clever refurbishment provides light, spacious split level accommodation, with luxury furnishings ( bedding from the White Company, crockery from John Lewis) and a very well equipped Kitchen. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. The outside space is huge with lovely flowerbeds, a beautiful pool and luxury sun-loungers.
