Welcome to our historic manor house in the heart of the Dordogne's Périgord Noir region of South-West France. Offering the ideal combination of a tranquil rural location yet with a bar/restaurant close by and the local village (Salignac) within walking distance.
We are located mid-way between the medieval capital Sarlat and Montignac. The international centre of prehistory at Les Eyzies is within easy reach, as is the Dordogne River
We are now offering spacious high-quality self-catering holiday accommodation in a new gîte, within the grounds of our manor. This architect-designed conversion successfully blends rustic charm with modern style. Perfect for anyone who likes to walk, visit chateaux, swim in the Dordogne river, simply chill-out or even surf the internet.
Wat een heerlijk vakantiehuis! Schitterend gelegen vlak naast een mooi oud kerkje. Het huis heeft alles wat je nodig hebt en is een prima uitvalsbasis voor veel leuke uitstapjes in de Dordogne. We werden hartelijk verwelkomd door Diane en haar lieve hond Florette. Mede door dit warme welkom voelden we ons er meteen thuis! Kortom: zeker een aanrader!!!
We had a great time in this lovely rural setting. It's in easy reach of the lake, cycling from Sarlat and Canoing on the dordogne. lovely meal up the road in the Black Duck. We managed a little sight seeing too as much as can be expected with young boys but they had plenty to do and the gite has wifi to dvd etc which was handy while we prepared food etc. thanks Diane for all your help and such a warm welcome! Nick Katie and the boys
The property was in an excellent setting, peaceful, easy for going on walks, it was spotless and there was everything you required for a homeaway holiday especially when you are travelling on your own or family. The host was excellent, very caring and knowledgeable of the area. I loved the church bells and there was a restaurant nearby with excellent food. You do need a car for the area. I would recommend this gite .
We had a wonderful holiday in the le manor du Carlucet. It's a perfect combination of a well equipped and functional accommodation and a location that is tranquil, peaceful and spiritually uplifting. The added bonus is having Diane and her very friendly dog florette living next door. We will be going back. Just don't tell everyone how good it is.
This is an absolutely wonderful property and Diane is so accommodating. The location was great, away from it all in the countryside, yet a very short drive to many sites. A friend and I stayed there for a week while exploring historic sites and caves of the Dordogne region. The amenities of the gite were perfect. We were able to relax in the evenings, make meals if we wanted, and even able to do laundry. Would highly recommend this property and it's wonderful owner!
My teen daughter and I stayed at this gite in July – the weather was variable but we had a fabulous time. The gite is rural, overlooking farmland, isolated from tourist traffic, and free from noise and activity – but still, not at all lonely. As a single woman, I am always concerned about feeling vulnerable and this is the perfect solution. The windows and doors are substantial; you can park within a foot of the front door if you like; and, despite the feeling of total privacy, there are other individuals living within calling distance. This, plus convenient access to the sights, and activities of the area, makes it the perfect place to stay.
The gite itself is light and airy with clean lines and attractive, comfortable, furniture. It’s well laid out with lovely views from upstairs. The bath, a large, clean, stone room has an open shower enclosure with excellent hot water and great water pressure. The washing machine works well, as does everything else. There is a terrace for sunning and barbecuing and a large gravel courtyard with cheerful flowers. Should you get beyond the pleasures of eating and drinking, there are books and games, WIFI, and even a large television – happily from our point of view, not very obvious.
The hamlet in which the gite resides, is composed of honey colored buildings, some originating from the 13th century. In fact, the gite itself has been rebuilt from the remains of a stone shed, its terrace formed by an ancient wall and gate. It’s truly magical. The only noises to be heard are the hourly bells of the nearby church and myriad birds trilling from morning to night. The air smells sweet. The night is dark and peaceful and the stars are bright.
A restaurant with a lovely terrace and good food is only three minutes away by foot. The nearest small town can be reached in 5 minutes by car - post office, general store, Marie (with fast computers and printer), and a few cafes, plus a weekly market and a night market where you can dine at large tables with the locals. Both Sarlat and Montignac, major tourist centers, are only ½ an hour away, to say nothing of the many smaller but delightful towns in between and beyond.
Diane the owner, is nearby but essentially invisible unless you need her. She’s an absolutely charming young woman - feisty, helpful, and fun. Her friendly dog languishes at the barrier, longing to visit and you can pet her if you like.
This is a wonderful place. We plan to return soon.
The property is close to the fantastic medieval town of Sarlat with its cobbled streets, ancient buildings, restaurants, shops, bars. Other nearby beauty spots include Rocamadour, Beynac, Domme and many more. Within easy reach of the property are a variety of sporting and cultural activities. There are many signposted walks through the countryside, the GR6 for serious ramblers, canoeing on the River Dordogne, horse riding, golf at the Souillac Country Club (18 holes), or the Domaine de Rochebois at Vitrac (9 holes).
The area also offers fishing, lake and riverside beaches, adventure and waterparks for children, gardens, castles, even hot-air ballooning for the more adventurous. 4 bikes are available for use at the property for a small charge, with 35 km of scenic cycle paths from Sarlat to Souillac. Local markets sell delicious local produce, such as duck, foie gras, truffles, walnuts, chestnuts and, of course, excellent wines
The local village of Salignac has a tourist office.
