Dordogne Holidaymakers Appreciation

Sarah Young private pool review bastide towns near prehistoric caves

Looking out across the field towards the woods, from this house in the sunny Dordogne region, you feel as though you’re in the middle of nowhere – perfect tranquillity, with nothing but the sounds of wildlife around you. That said, the medieval town St Yrieix is just down the road – about 10 minutes by car – where you can…  More

This farmhouse is just stunning! Incredible high standard, felt very opulent, with several quirky features including an indoor balcony & Narnia wardrobe entrance to the living area! The settings are beautifully quiet & secluded with so much room for the children to run around in. The property…  More

Pete Cook, Gite Guests settings and owners garden and private pool

This Dordogne cottage is amazing. A typical french country farmhouse and barn have been transformed into a perfect rental that’s perfect for a group of friends and children. All the bedrooms are very comfortable with luxurious bathrooms. The main bedroom even has a fireman’s pole for a swift exit downstairs! We were particularly impressed with the open plan self catering large cooking/lounge/eating space that was made for big gatherings. It’s huge!  Outside this villa in beautiful south west France, there is a massive patio partially covered to give some shade on the really hot summer days. Beyond that there…   More

Jaci Legge,

5 star for this self catering Dordogne  owners stone house with swimming pool, gardens sarlat la canéda

“This is one of the self catering Dordogne gites that is just stunning! The setting is beautifully quiet & secluded with so much space for the kids and families to run around in. The house itself was almost as big as my local village – I could fit my house in the large and newly renovated Banquet Hall! And with spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. This was just the tonic we needed before Christmas, the views are stunning in all directions, like a deep exhale of peace! We will definitely be back for a week or 2 weeks! Its hard to find something to fault with this. The weather climate and temperature in south west France could have been better but I don’t hold the hosts responsible for that! It was December!”

5 star for this Dordogne luxury houses & garden, swimming pool, no shared pool

“One of the best gites to rent in Dordogne! Locally you can get everything you need (the fortnightly Friday towns market place is well worth a trip for picking up delicious food to take back and enjoy on the buildings patio, with a nice glass of local wine and a book!). We stayed there as a group of ladies celebrating a friend’s 50th birthday, and it was a perfect base for chilling out, visiting lovely local restaurants and laughing loudly without disturbing the neighbours!

The perfect secluded countryside relaxing holiday spot to focus on finishing off the outstanding admin before Christmas… and then sit back, unwind and look up at the stars with a nice glass of red, maybe a St Emilion trip. Awesome house and lovely garden, comfy bedrooms and bathrooms, and facilities one could need for a farmhouse in the Dordogne region!”

Dani Harrison,

5 for this self catering Dordogne luxury villa, swimming pool and play table tennis  sarlat la canéda caves, no shared pool

“We searched ages for self catering houses with swimming pool, or a holiday cottage and Dordogne cottages for our get-away. We found this. This luxury villa (“gite luxe Dordogne”!) in the French countryside – the location, settings, scenery and region, big bedrooms – bedrooms sleeps 8 or more – a stunning house in the Dordogne region. We loved the children’s play area, the swimming pool, wonderful views and good restaurants nearby. We instantly felt welcome and relaxed on our visit.”


In layman’s terms, we are about three-quarters of the way down France and about one quarter of the way in from the west / left coast.

More of the towns around

This Dordogne accommodation, newly renovated, situated in the Aquitaine region (Dordogne is the department but you will hear people pronounce it as “the Dordoyne area” or dordoin, dordoine, dordoigne), is north or NW from Languedoc Roussillon, from Périgueux, Bergerac, cote d’azur, Lot et Garonne, with temperate climate with some of the most beautiful villages, castles and grounds. Things to do locally.
This cottage is South east of the pays de la Loire valley and east of Poitou Charentes, Villefranche du Perigord in Périgord noir, Saint Cyprien in périgord noir, the midi pyrenees.  The Massif central is east of this destination. Beynac et cazenac, medieval Sarlat and Rocamadour cliffs in the Dordogne valley are to south east of the cottage.

The bastide towns of Monpazier and Domme are further towards the south, as are other bastide towns (bastide towns = fortified medieval town). Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil near the Grotte de Font-de-Gaume, and Sarlat la canéda and Le Bugue (Le Bugue is worth a visit) is situated to the south of our holiday homes. Nord pas de Calais is far colder and is 7 hours up from this Farmhouse cottage.  Bergerac airport is 1 hour 40 minutes travel. St Emilion (one of the most beautiful villages and visit vineyards there) and surrounding area is about 1 hour 30 away.
This luxury villa is about a 5 hours journey down from Normandy department way. Périgueux with its cathedral and castles is worth a visit (Perigeux is 1 hour away from the property).  Marqueyssac is an hour and a half to the SW. Easy from the UK / England (UK flights are 1 hour 30 minutes).

How wonderful to rent in the Dordogne, to enjoy your stay together.

There are many things to do and enjoy locally, from wine tasting to watersports. See our page of things to do locally here.

Sightseeing Overview

You can filter through the best Dordogne sights, information, attractions, markets and places, for the right price and rates for you. Other Dordogne opportunities include spa and beauty treatments available in town as well as castle chateaux, creative arts, antiques and the brocante market.

When looking for a self catering House in Dordogne with heated Pool, Jumilhac le Grand village offers the ideal place for great restaurants and magnificent views overlooking the chateaux (castles) fortresses and gardens which visitors can view. There is also a public swimming bath (a shared swimming pool).  The village has local markets, shops and a tourist office for information, and one of the rivers runs through it for gold panning which is a fun day out in the landscape (you can swim in the river, no price), and other activities in the surrounding area are ideal for all of you.  Other villages near the villa are beautiful in summer; June, July, August, September.

Further afield is the opportunity for watersports and stay off the beaten track with horses (horse riding), and other great fitness and fun activities.  Mountaineering is not an option but everyone can follow the wine route from your villa in the beautiful Dordogne.  Leave plenty of time for a selection of nice wine at a good price!
The lovely Dordogne church in the local market town of St Yrieix La Perche is a stunning example of medieval architecture of history.
From arrival at your self catering luxury house, Skiing at Mont D’or is 2 hours away.  Fun destinations and places include the vineyards, and La Roque Gageac valley and its medieval part is an hour and an half a way. Again, there are superb views there.  You are well within your rights to go along the walking trails from the farmhouse cottage – take the map from the estate which will help to explore the location.

Dordogne houses like this offers access to wonderful sightseeing and history such as cave paintings and engravings at Lascaux (Lascaux is a replica version cave painting, plus other caves. The caves are thousands of years old but discovered recently), wine tasting, there are certain cliffs and zoos to travel to across different regions.

Maybe go canoeing, with canoe hire along the Dordogne river. La Roque Gageac is along the Dordogne river which has amazing views, along with other beautiful villages. Get off the beaten track amongst other stunning towns.
Arcachon beach and other beaches and coastline are 2.5 hours away near Bordeaux.

Customers can easily take the train service from this luxury villa to Bordeaux, Périgueux or to the capital city Paris. 
Experience a glimpse of the culture and charm of Dordogne, warm the heart with confit de canard with walnuts, maybe high price foie gras or truffles, for a better life.

Down the hillside, across the gardens, our lake gives you a chance to go out rowing on the boat or swim in the water and you can take a countryside nature walk by the lovely river water way (the river runs around it).


The luxury villa sleeps up to 14 people, and offers a superb swimming pool for all the family. Discover more about the inside of this luxury villa here.
