Sarlat rental property with pool - this is a restored farmhouse in the Perigord, incorporating modern architectural concepts, old stone walls and original beamed ceilings - a very tasteful and interesting property. The house offers valley views from the living room, a fenced pool and outdoor covered dining area. It enjoys a peaceful situation, yet is very convenient for touring this fascinating and attractive area.
The Dordogne offers a multitude of historic sites, including the beautiful Renaissance town of Sarlat, the prehistoric caves at Lascaux and numerous medieval castles, and picturesque villages and towns seemingly unchanged by the passage of time. There's plenty for families in this area, with canoeing and kayaking along the Dordogne, or boat trips in the traditional gabares, horse-riding, cycling, treetop adventure parks and well-known gardens, all with easy reach. This region is also world famous for its many caves with ancient wall paintings and spectacular rock formations: Lascaux is just 25 miles away, and an underwater boat ride through the ancient caves at Gouffres du Padirac would also make a memorable day out for holidaymakers of all ages.
To help you relax into your holiday, a cook is available on request. Why not sample some of the wonderful local gastronomic delights - truffle, fois gras and confit, walnuts, chestnuts and cepes, as well as the well known wines from the Bergerac and Bordeaux vineyards.
This restored farmhouse in the Perigord is available all year round.

An unusual shape this property but spacious, and I like the atmosphere it has. Very French and set within the grounds of Chateau des Legendes. The grounds are extensive and some lovely walks can be had here. From the terrace is a fabulous view over the countryside. Good restaurants in this area all offering typical Perigourdine delicacies such as foie gras, magret and good local wines.
