About the property

Set in a tranquil location with lovely views in the heart of the Dordogne golden triangle. Close to all major attractions including Sarlat and Beynac.

Maison Les Cerisiers is a very pretty honey coloured stone house set in tranquil countryside with beautiful views over rolling countryside.

Situated well for many of the Dordogne's best attractions, ranging from canoeing, shopping and gastronomy, to exploring 5 major chateaux all within 20 minutes drive. The Dordogne River and Castelnaud la Chapelle is 10 minutes away, Beynac 15 minutes and Sarlat 20 minutes.

Maison Les Cerisiers sleeps 6 - 10 in 2 buildings. The house sleeps 6 in two bedrooms plus a sleeper couch and the separate gite sleeps 4 in two bedrooms.

The house can be rented on its own or, with the addition of the gite, is ideal for a larger family or group of friends travelling together.


Please contact me for a quote to add the gite.


The main house has 3 livings rooms and a kitchen split over the ground and 1st floor. Each living room on the 1st floor has a log burner.

On the ground floor, sliding doors open onto beautiful terraces complete with outdoor dining furniture. Sit here at the end of a hot day and enjoy a cool sundowner while you spark up the BBQ. Views are across the property's pool, pasture and woodland and into the distance.

On the 2nd floor there are 2 good sized bedrooms and a bathroom. Bedroom one has a king size bed and bedroom two has two single beds.

There are two bathrooms (one bath plus overhead shower and a shower room).

The entire house has been freshly decorated and all the furnishings are new.

The property is set on its own 5 hectares of pasture land and woodland. The position of the house lends itself to beautiful views.

There is a private pool alongside a poolside patio with a BBQ and sun loungers.

There are 2 terraces with outdoor dining furniture so you can enjoy the views with an al fresco dinner and sundowner.


The gite is in a separate building located across a grassed courtyard area at the front of the property. It is built from the same pretty honey coloured stone.

It has a large open plan living room, dining room and kitchenette with a log burner, new sofas and TV.

Upstairs there are two good sized bedrooms with a double bed and 2 singles respectively, and a shower room.

Both properties have new LED TVs and wifi.

About Karin Lorenz

Hello, we are Karin, Mike, Ruby and Oliver!

We fell in love with the Dordogne in 2013 after a fabulous holiday spent exploring the countryside with our dogs who were, much to our delight, welcomed everywhere. We stayed in a local gite and had the best time. The countryside, long walks, beautiful scenery and quality of life appealed to us. The search for our dream French home began as soon as we returned home!

We visit our home several times a year to make loving improvements, ensure that it is kept well maintained and of course to enjoy the tranquility of both the house and the location. The house is very much our home and holds a special place in our hearts.

We are sorry that at this stage we cannot welcome you in person, however we do have a lovely lady available to assist and we are just an email, call or text away.

We hope you will visit Les Cerisiers and that you love the house as much as we do.

Wishing you fabulous holidays in this special part of the world.

Karin and Mike

Why Karin Lorenz chose Veyrines-de-Domme

This region of the Dordogne is spectacular. Breathtaking views and chateaux on every bend of the river, not forgetting the beauty of the river itself. Gastronomic and cultural delights await you in every village !

Maison Les Cerisiers offers you the best of both worlds...peaceful tranquil location whilst being in heart of all the famous Perigord Noir attractions.

What more can we say...we love it !

What makes this house unique

The house is situated in a quiet and peaceful hamlet, Veyrines de Domme, and is perched at the top of a hill with stunning views across rolling countryside.

You can ramble across the land, forage for firewood for those BBQs or just relax by the pool with a chilled drink. In the winter the wood will come in handy for roaring log fires.

Whilst located in a gorgeous rural location, Castelnaud la Chapelle is only 10 minutes away and offers a boulangerie with the most delicious bread and cakes. It is famous in the local area. There is also shop offering all the local basics you may need and a canoe centre on the Dordogne river. You also have the spectacular Chateau de Castelnaud dominating the skyline.

Beynac is 15 minutes away and is a sight to behold and Sarlat 20 minutes. There are too many attractions to list but I have left a selection of brochures in the house.

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house in a gorgeous location. There is so much to see and experience in the Dordogne and we enjoyed every minute of it. After visiting chateaus, beautiful gardens, canoeing and caves, it was lovely to come home to the tranquility and comforts of the house.

We loved the openness of the kitchen and dining area in the evening and were lucky enough to be able to eat al fresco each night. This almost never happens at home in Yorkshire 😬.

The house is well equipped, tastefully furnished and very cosy. The beds are so comfortable!

We brought our dogs with us and were able to relax and let them wander the fenced part of the garden without any worry.

The booking process was really easy and Karin was so so helpful in her recommendations to first time visitors to the region.

All in all it was a fabulous holiday and would wholeheartedly recommend the house to anyone.

Beautiful house, beautiful location,

  • 5 of 5

Wow, fantastic house beautifully renovated and furnished in a quiet rural location. We have holidayed in many villas and houses around the world and are very particular in the standard we expect in a home from home, Karin has created an enviroment that exceeded our expectations and gave us a wonderful base for a perfect holiday. Near neighbour Nathalie is the agent looking after the house, she is very friendly, helpful and keeps the property looking so fresh it feels like everything is new. We would also recommend paddle boarding down the Dordogne with Nathalie's company, a great way to see the area and easy to get the hang of. Thank you Nathalie and Karin!

A rural idyll in the Dordogne!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from one weeks stay at Les Cerisiers and it could not have been more lovely. The house is located in a quiet hamlet with views stretching out over the valley. We were met by the local agent, Nathalie who showed us around and handed over the keys for our stay. She was on hand throughout our stay and spoke excellent English. There was a very informative welcome book detailing info on the house and surrounding area.

The main house is spread across 3 floors, decorated beautifully and very spacious. Whilst there were only 2 of us and our dog - a group of adults or a family would have plenty of space to spread out and not get under each other’s feet. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything we needed both for indoor and BBQ catering. The kitchen opens onto the terrace which makes it very convenient to light the BBQ rather than cooking indoors - the weather was over 30c during our stay and the shaded terrace and cool kitchen was very welcome in the evening!

Down a gentle slope away from the house, we used the pool which provided a well needed cool down after a warm day seeing the sights. A shaded terrace area also keeps out the strong sunshine during the hottest parts of the day.

The upstairs bedrooms do get hot if it’s been a hot day; a fan in each bedroom is available and was very welcome! Keeping the windows open will bring in the bugs (you're in the country after all!) so be sure to bring some repellent in the summer. We didn't find this a big problem but hopefully a helpful bit of advice!

If you do want to watch TV, most UK Freeview channels available.

We took our dog on this trip and the cottage was perfect for this. The garden is fenced so your dog can't escape, plus the 5 hectares of land was an added bonus to exercise your dog in the cooler parts of the day. Karin was kind enough to recommend her local vet who is a delightful lady and knew exactly what was needed for the pet passport which was very reassuring.

Superbly located for many attractions of The Dordogne. Castelnaud-le-Chappelle is less than 10 minutes away with its picture postcard chateau and village with a boulongerie selling the most amazing fresh bread and pastries, a small shop, cafes and other facilities. Also access to the Dordogne river where you can swim or hire canoes. Sarlat la Caneda is @20+ mins away and a magnet for tourists, but well worth a visit.

Highly recommended - Bon Vacances!

Wonderful stay and owner, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned after spending a week in Karin’s home and have the serious holiday blues. The beautiful period house and gite was spotless and fit our group of seven adults very comfortably. The house is set on a quiet picturesque country lane surrounded by farmland and stunning views across fields and woodlands. We enjoyed many beautiful walks in the immediate area as well as having the generous land the house sits within to enjoy. The house and the gite are well equipped and furnished elegantly. We felt so welcomed by Nathalie, Karin’s local neighbour, who showed us the house on arrival and was on hand during our stay if we had any enquiries. Karin was extremely helpful in the lead up to our holiday and provided us with great tips and ideas. We would absolutely love to stay again! Thank you Karin!!

Fantastic luxury farmhouse in tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful house. The house is amazing, and has been so beautifully restored - it was a privilege to stay in somewhere so lovely, and in such a tranquil spot with such gorgeous views. It was spotlessly clean and everything within looked brand new. It was really helpful to find essentials such as salt&pepper, loo roll washing up liquid and bin bags on our arrival.

The surrounding area is stunning, with 5 amazing chateaux within a 15 minute drive - amazing views everywhere we looked, but the pool and the view were so fantastic it was hard to drag ourselves away from the house!
