The Private Pool is surrounded by landscaped gardens and is the perfect location to relax and soak up the summer sun.

Villa La Peyrière has Excellent / Five Star Reviews on all the major accommodation sites including Trip Advisor and Home Away and is an excellent base from which to explore Sarlat and the villages of the Dordogne, including Domme, Saint Cyprian, Les Eyzies, Montignac and Racamadour.

The large and very private garden boasts a walnut grove, fruit trees and an extensive Mediterranean garden with a large variety of herbs.

We encourage guests to visit our website for further details on the property. You can also find us listed on Google Maps and Facebook.

About the House

The house started its life long ago as two stone barns and has been restored and converted into one large home. The renovation has maintained the original Perigordian character of the property while adding modern kitchen and bathroom facilities.

The house is surrounded by just over 2100 square metres of established gardens with magnificent views over the valley while being just 600 metres from the ancient quarter of Sarlat where one can find an excellent selection of local restaurants offering regional cuisine.

There is private parking on the property for up to two vehicles.

The Rooms of Villa La Peyrière:

MASTER BEDROOM - The newly renovated master bedroom features a queen size bed and ensuite bathroom. A flat screen TV with a library of DVD’s plus an iPod docking station.

DOUBLE BEDROOM - A double bedroom with a queen size bed and quality fittings.

TWIN BEDROOM - A twin bedroom with 2 single beds and quality fittings.

THE KITCHEN - Features a fireplace and is fully equipped with oven, cook top, dishwasher, and microwave. Pantry staples such as olive oil, salt & pepper, tea and coffee are provided for the convenience of guests.

LOUNGE / DINING ROOM - A large living area is dominated by a commanding sand stone fire place at one end of the room and French doors opening onto the garden at the other end. The room is tastefully furnished with a combination of quality antiques and modern furnishings.

There is a flat screen television, a DVD player with a library of DVDs and a sound system with iPod docking station.

THE SITTING ROOM - A light filled sitting room made entirely of sandstone links the two barns together. This room is a perfect spot to sit and read or just sit and relax. A selection of books and games are provided for guests.

While you do not need a car while staying at Villa La Peyriere and are walking distance to all that Sarlat has to offer you will need a car to explore the surrounding area as public transport is very limited.

About Karen Edwards

We are Australians who love to travel and have lived in France for over 4 years.

Prior to France Karen lived in Venice for 2 year and Alex lived in Hong Kong for 3 years. We have both travelled extensively to various parts of the world with trips typically being several months in length and spanning several thousand kms.

We believe in travelling slowly, searching out special places and allowing ourselves enough time to experience life there. - Sarlat is one of those places.

We lease our house out over the summer months and take the opportunity to travel back to Australia, usually via some exotic location.

We live a nomadic lifestyle using our French home as our base and spend 2 - 3 months a years in SE Asia. After France our favourite countries are Thailand, Laos & Vietnam followed closely by Italy, Spain & Greece.

We love an adventure and dream (or perhaps fantasise) about travelling from France back to Australia in a Citroen 2CV.

Karen Edwards purchased this villa in 2011

Why Karen Edwards chose Perigord Noir

We have an authentic French stone house walking distance to the medieval quarter of Sarlat, one of the best preserved medieval towns in France.

The Dordogne has everything a visitor could want, historic sites, medieval chateaux, quaint villages, great food and wine, pristine rivers and forests.

We think the Dordogne is the best part of France and that the region around Sarlat is the best part of the Dordogne. - For us, it doesn't get any better than that.

One of the great things about living in the house is its location. We don't need a car to visit the Sarlat market, pick up our daily croissants & bread, get a few groceries or a bottle of wine.

We can walk to our favourite Sarlat restaurants or to the town square for our evening 'apéritif'.

What makes this villa unique

Even though we are only a short walk from the medieval town square the property is very private and is set on 2000 square metres of land with view over the valley. There are lovely gardens, outdoor dining and a wonderful pool area for guests to enjoy.

The important thing to remember is that Sarlat draws a huge number of visitors, particularly in July and August. Staying in our home allows you to escape the crowds, avoid parking hassles and still being walking distance to all the action.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Five Star Review Posted On Trip Advisor...

We've just returned from a two week stay in this lovely home in sarlat. The house is split into two sections which are joined by a light and airy room. There are three spacious bedrooms in the house, two doubles and one twin. Outside there are three gardens and a swimming pool with all the necessary loungers. The house is only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Sarlat and I loved waking up in the morning and walking into Sarlat for breakfast and then doing the same at night to see all the entertainment.

The family had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing time at the house. The communication throughout with the owner was excellent and I would recommend this marvellous holiday home.

Beautiful house in gorgeous garden setting

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in gorgeous garden setting. Spacious and clean, with private pool and locally situated. We enjoyed our stay as a family of four and would return. It's a short walk to town; ideal for shopping or dining out. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals. We liked visiting local villages, castles and gardens.

Lovely Villa in Fabulous Setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa is superbly located within easy walking distance (10 minutes) of the medieval town of Sarlat with its beautiful architecture, markets and numerous restaurants.

The villa itself is situated on a private driveway on a hill with wonderful views across the valley. It is very comfortable and well appointed and was spotlessly clean. But the gardens, terrace and pool areas make it really special. There are so many places to sit, either by the pool in the sun or under shady trees, on the terrace or in the gardens .

We had a lovely peaceful and relaxing holiday. Being so close to the town meant that we could walk down to one of the restaurants in the evening without needing to take the car. If you enjoy wine with your meal, that's a real bonus!

This was our first visit to the Dordogne and it won't be our last. The villa made an excellent base and we highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for telling us about your stay. We are pleased to hear you had a great time. Guests often comment on how conveniently located the property is, yet peaceful, particularly in July and August when Sarlat is full of visitors. In peak tourist season it is certainly an oasis away from the chaos, hustle and bustle of a vibrant tourist town. We hope to see you soon. Kind regards, Karen

Beautiful property in a super location

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be very well equipped and furnished and clean. It has all modern conveniences whilst keeping a French farmhouse feel. For a family with 2 teenage boys it was perfect as there was plenty of room and 2 of the bedrooms are at the opposite end of the house to the main bedroom, with a separate staircase. This unusual layout may not suit those with young children. We particularly enjoyed the spacious gardens, outside terrace and pool area. The property is set about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Sarlat so it is extremely quiet and peaceful but with all the facilities just a few minutes away. The booking process was easy and Karen answered all our questions and was easy to deal with. We would be happy to recommend this property to our friends.....but would rather keep it to ourselves!

We hope you visit again some day soon. Kind regards, Karen

Excellent holiday

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Especially eating out on the lovely terrace. Very relaxing, even with two young kids 2 and 4). The pool is also very safe for young children as it is all fenced off. There are three garden areas for the kids to run around in, all different and appealing.

The owner, karen is very helpful and fast to respond to queries. We left house/car keys behind by accident and she insisted on sending them to us with no charge.

We only had minor issues that could be addressed eg propane gas was empty on arrival and took a couple of days to fix. Thats worth half a star, but since you can't do 4.5...

Overall we had a great stay and csn recommend this property. Sarlat is a beautiful town, and the surrounding area is special. Lots for adults snd kids to do.

Owner's Response: Hi Rod, We are glad to hear you had a great time and that you enjoyed your stay at Villa La Peyriere. We work hard to ensure that guest have a pleasant stay and welcome constructive feedback so that we can address any issues that come along. We have taken measures to ensure that there is always a spare full gas bottle next to the gas-fired BBQ. There is also a wood-fired BBQ with lots of wood if guest would like to use that. We hope to see you again some time soon. Kind regards, Karen

Great House in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa La Peyriere in for a week in May 2015. A beautiful house with well maintained garden and pool it was a short walk to the centre of Sarlat. The house was the best, cleanest and most well maintained of our three month european trip. We would recommend Villa la Peyriere to families looking for value for money accommodation in one of France's most beautiful locations. Thanks Karen for all of your helpful suggestions and well stocked kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased to hear you had such a great time staying at Villa La Peyriere. May is my favourite time in the Dordogne, spring has well and truly arrived, the weather is pleasant and the summer crowds have yet to arrive. So you chose well! We hope to see you again some day soon. Kind regards, Karen

A pleasant villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa La Peyriere is a pleasant property set on lovely grounds that provide a relaxing setting after exploring Sarlat and its surrounds. The villa has all the facilities you would want. It led to a 'no problems' stay where one could just relax.

My only caution would be unfit elderly people may find it a challenge if they were walking to the villa back from the old town as the climb is a bit steep, as are the stairs to the bedrooms. But for most people it is a comfortable stay conveniently located and well worth renting.

Located in the historic market town of Sarlat, Villa La Peyriere offers the perfect setting for exploring Perigord and the Dordogne.

Sarlat is centred in the heart of Perigord Noir and makes an excellent base from which to discover the local medieval and historic towns and villages such as Domme, Saint Cyprian, Les Eyzies, Montignac and Racamadour.

There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking, canoeing or fishing in either the Dordogne or the Vezere Rivers or just laze about the pool enjoying the summer sun.

There are also several excellent markets in the local towns and villages, including the fabulous Sarlat Market held on a Wednesday and Saturday where local gourmet delicacies such as truffles, fois gras, local cheese and wine are on offer to the discerning palette.

The towns and villages of Castelnaud, Beynac, Montignac & Les Eyzies offer the opportunity to delve into the regions’ historic and prehistoric past.

Other Activities: Pool, Canoeing, Markets, Chateau, Wine Tasting, Caves, Historical Sites
