About the property

Villa on the Dodogne/Lot border 15 mins from Cenac 30 mins from Sarlat free wifi

If you want complete privacy then Lily is the property for you.

Surrounded by woods and up to 15 foot high hedges, she is also adjacent to our own field. However, more importantly, we as owners do not stay in separate accommodation on the premises during your holiday. Lily, the pool, jacuzzi, and the garden area is for your sole use only.

Lily had a new fitted kitchen installed in 2011, and the living room is extremely spacious and comfortable. we have no doubt you will be spending most of your time outside on the 100 square meter decking area, complete with swimming pool and jacuzzi, all set in totally private gardens. The outdoor dining area comes complete with seating area and dining table, which seats 8 people comfortably and a superb gas BBQ at your disposal for that al fresco dining was bought new in 2014.

Lily has 3 well-appointed beautifully decorated double bedrooms. All bedroom windows are fitted with mosquittto nets, so you can have your windows open at a night when it is hot and not get bitten to pieces by these nasty little things. A new modern family bathroom was completely refitted in 2015, and there is also a separate toilet.

There's plenty of car parking space and the front entrance gates can be locked to ensure there are no disturbances whilst you're sunbathing. The entire outside entertainment area has mood lighting and outside electricity sockets.

Lie back and relax on the sun loungers or sit under the umbrellas or covered terrace, which has a 20ft awning which helps to keep the house cool in the hot summer months.

In 2014 we created a courtyard garden and we have now transformed the gardens around the pool into a tropical paradise.

Fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at villa Lily after our wedding, and took our toddler with us. It was the perfect holiday set near a lovely little town and surroundings, making for lovely walks. We enjoyed the pool together and the hot tub was awesome for relaxing after our daughter was tucked up in bed.

Thoroughly recommend this beautifully presented place for couples, families and friends alike!

Thank you for letting us stay and for the gorgeous reception :)

Honeymoon Holiday

Absolutely gorgious villa in such a fabulous location too. We visited for our honeymoon and had such a wonderful welcome. We also had our toddler in tow. The villa with the pool and hot tub, and the park down the road in the village were the perfect location for us.

So many sights to see locally as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Thank you.

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable fortnight using Lily as our base to explore the Perigod Region. The house is in a very quiet spot and ideal for relaxing by the pool on sunny days. Ginny was excellent and checked in with us at the beginning of our stay to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction.

Peace & Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here at Lily during the heatwave, 40+ degrees each day phew!!! Was hot! Luckily we had the lovely pool and jacuzzi, and the peace and tranquility we anticipated, (Absolutely Lovely). Had a great time in surrounding areas. Sarlat is beautiful, well worth a visit.

Hope to return soon.

Thank you for having us.

Beautiful unspoilt area

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely part of the Dordogne area-lots to see and do. We had beautiful weather and there were days we just stayed put as the villa catered for us all-shade when needed, sunbeds and pool. Ginny is the perfect owner, she makes sure that everything is okay for a stress free relaxing holiday, the villa was beautifully clean as was the pool. The information at the villa was really helpful regarding places to go to eat, activities, markets etc., as it included whether is should be an early start etc. Thank you Ginny for making our holiday just as holidays should be.

Lily sits right on the boarder of both the Dordogne and Lot Departments. Lily lies 1 km from the picturesque village of Salviac, which has two excelent boulangeries, restaurants, bank and mini supermarket. She is only 20 mins away from Gourdon which has excellent hyper-markets and countless bars and restaurants selling superb local produce.

Lily is situated in the heart of the Bouriane region of South West France. She is ideally located between the best bits of the Dordogne and Lot Rivers. Numerous castles, prehistoric caves and countless 'villages of France'. It is the perfect retreat to explore the likes of Rocamadour, Domme, Monpazier, Sarlat and Cahors and it's only an hour away from Bergerac Airport.

Steeped in history, this corner of South West France is like travelling back in time. It's relative isolation, up until as recent as the 1980's when the N20 was built and the opening of airports such as Bergerac and Brive has meant very little has changed here for decades - indeeed villages like Saint Cirq Lapopie, Domme, La Rogue-Gageac and Monpazier have all been issued with the prestigious 'Villages of France' title, reflecting their beauty and historical importance.

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to the vast array of outdoor activities found in this region, which caters for all ages and budgets. Here are just a few.

You literally have hundreds of Chateaux to choose from and some of the best examples like Beynac and Castlenaud are only 30 mins away. The remnants of the Hundred Years War can be found all through the region, as well as Roman occupation.

One of the most important religious centres, on par with Lourdes and Santiago de Compostela, (hence, the most visited site in France outside of Paris) is Rocamadour, which is only 55 mins away.

Prehistoric caves - some of the earliest signs of man can be found in the world famous caves at Pech Merle, dating back 25,000 years. Then there's the spectacular caves at Padirac where after you descend down into the abyss you then get into a boat to take a trip on the underground lake!

If you like your food, then you've come to the right place. This region of France is world famous for its gastronomy and the superb local markets are bursting with locally produced, quality products. The Cahors wine was introduced by the Romans and is renowned for its black appearance. It was even served to Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II when they married in 1152.

Canoeing on both the Dordogne and Lot rivers gives you a different vantage point of the spectacular Chateaux, villages and cliffs.

Hot Air ballooning over the Dordogne River is the ultimate treat - the early morning flights will blow you away as the mist rises out of the valleys.

Cycling - You can hire bikes in the nearby village of Cazals and there are miles of country tracks for all abilities.

Walking - A great area for walking with routes suitable for all ages and abilities.
