About Tracy Scott
My husband and I and our 2 girls moved here nearly 16 years ago. As soon as we saw this beautiful house and the old stunning barn within the grounds, we immediately fell in love with not only the place, but also the surrounding area which is steeped in history and beauty! We simply just couldn't go back! It truly is a step back in time! Come and experience it for yourself.
Tracy Scott purchased this House in 2003
Why Tracy Scott chose Villefranche-du-Périgord
Off the beaten track, yet close enough within walking distance to the local friendly village with plenty of shops, boulangeries, butchers, cafes, restaurants, mini-marts, bank, tourist office etc. No passing traffic, safe haven for everybody to enjoy the peace and quiet and all the wildlife and feel totally relaxed. A great base to do some serious sightseeing! Or to simply re-charge your batteries and finish that book you never find the time for !
What makes this House unique
Complete safety. The beautiful large gardens, the smells from the roses, honeysuckles and lavenders, listening to the tree crickets soaking up the sun and the most amazing views and sunsets and starry skies that go on and on forever..........

La Borie Grande was the perfect place for us. A large private and very beautiful old French house equipped with everything you could possibly need and with gorgeous gardens to Potter around. The welcome basket of goodies was v appreciated after a long a drive. A lovely welcome from Tracy whom was always on hand if needed. We enjoyed watching the sun go down over the glorious views each evening on the deck and the pool was a godsend on a very hot week! Eating outside for breakfast, lunch and dinner with the amazing views was a real treat. While it feels like the house is lovely and secluded in the woods it’s only a 10 minute walk into the pretty village of Villefranche du Perigord for baguettes and groceries. The house is also in a great location for visiting the popular sites of the Dordogne . We would love to return and would highly recommend. Thank you Tracy for having us!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay here and saw so much that the beautiful Dordogne has to offer!
I look forward to welcoming you back to La Borie Grande at anytime in the near future!
Best wishes to you all
This was our third stay at La Borie, and it is better than ever. Tracy has added to what was an already brilliantly landscaped area, to include a tree shaded bbq and pizza oven dining space, but better still a deck projecting out over the valley slopes with lovely views and comfortable furniture. Lounging out there after dark, watching satellites and shooting stars, with a back drop of the milky way and a glass of port in hand was wonderful.
The pool area, hidden away behind high hedges, is also lovely.
La Borie is a comfortable and spacious old farm house which feels more like someone's home than a holiday rental.
Villefranche itself is a 5 minute drive or a pleasant 20 minute stroll down through the trees. Small, old and quaint, it's worth the stroll to obtain fresh bread, or a coffee and ice cream. There are two modest mini-markets and a general store; enough available to buy in provisions for a few days.
We love this place!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review, and also for simply enjoying so much of La Borie Grande and realising why we fell in love with this place and the area the first time we arrived!!
Best wishes to you all x
A warm, friendly welcome on arrival. Stunning setting, spacious, cool house with everything we needed. Spotlessly clean pool, kids park fantastic and lots of open spaces to run around. So many places to visit in the area, will definitely be back.
Thank you for your review.
So glad you all had a great holiday and the kids made good use of the gardens!
Look forward to welcoming you back.
Beautiful property, well located for exploring the Dordogne and Lot
Property is set in a lovely location on the edge of Villefrance du Perigord. The property is well equipped and has everything that you could need. In addition to the sheltered and secluded pool area, there are a number of places to enjoy an evening glass of wine after a day's exploring. Highlights like canoeing on the Dordogne, Beynac, Castelnaud, Sarlat, Chateau de Bonaguil etc are all very easily reachable. Really appreciated the warm welcome and generous initial supplies from Tracy and family. Definitely somewhere we would recommend and would be happy to return to.
Thank you for your kind words. Glad you all enjoyed your stay and got to see many of the beautiful sites the Dordogne has to offer!
Look forward to welcoming you all back again one day.
This was the second time we have stayed here. Everything was fantastic, from the house to the pool to Tracy (the owner), and the weather!!
We had a great time. We have two children aged 9 and 7 and there is plenty of activities on site for them. Tracy is super friendly, and nothing is too much trouble for her. She even helped us with our dodgy BBQ-ing skills!
The house is fully equipped with everything you could need and more, and the outside areas are superb
The local village has two small supermarkets, two bakeries and a couple of cafes. It is beautiful and quaint. We enjoyed getting fresh bread every morning.
I would recommend this place to anyone wishing to have a relaxing holiday.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review!
Glad you all had such a great time and I look forward to seeing you all again anytime !! x
Wonderful house, grounds, location and hosts
We enjoyed a wonderful week at La Borie Grande. We were an extended family group and the size of the house, different areas outside, and the gardens meant that we all felt we had plenty of space to enjoy together, or alone! The local town is lovely, and Tracy and family couldn't be more helpful hosts. A week just wasn't long enough!

A magnificent walled medieval hill top village with fantastic views over the Dordogne valley. The spectacular grotto is well worth a visit and immerse yourself in the history of the Knights Templar and their close association with the village
Le ROQUE GAGEAC
A spectacular village carved into the cliff. The myriad of cobbled streets quaint shops and restaurants provide a perfect backdrop to a sail down the Dordogne and the perfect place for a refreshment as the sun goes down.
This medieval and walled town has been the backdrop to many movies and is an outstanding example of architecture beauty. The many twisting and cobbled streets will inevitably lead you to a fabulous restaurant, chic boutique or magnificent spot to watch the world go by.

A beautiful chateau with exquisite gardens situated overlooking the Dordogne valley and river. The walks around this magnificent house and its gardens are breathtaking, and to capture the romance try the Thursday evening candle lit, and stroll around and listen to the live romantic music wafting over the valley. Also, around the gardens are activities for children to become involved in and a great maze!
One of the most impressive chateau in the region is 45 minutes from the house and with breathtaking views it is a perfect place for a picnic
LASCAUX cave contains the oldest existing cave drawing depicted by medieval man, Approx 2 hrs drive but well worth a visit.
