Perigord family villa with heated pool - L'Ancienne Borie is a delightful, renovated farmhouse situated in a small hamlet in the Perigord Noir. This area of the Dordogne region is characterised by its lush countryside and pretty villages. The farmhouse has been renovated to a high standard and decorated throughout in warm, neutral colours, with particular emphasis placed on comfort and artistic lines. It is an ideal base for a peaceful and relaxing family holiday: you can relax by the heated pool while the children swim or play in the gardens.

You are just over a mile from the village of Tourtoirac, where you will find local shops and a restaurant, as well as some nice picnic spots along the banks of the Auvezere river. The village is famous for its thousand-year-old abbey and also for its amazing caves, which opened to the public in 2010. The larger town of Hautefort is only five miles from your villa and here you will find more restaurants serving local specialities, a baker, a butcher and a variety of shops, a supermarket and pavement cafes... there is also a small market on Wednesday mornings. Don't miss a visit to the imposing chateau and its beautiful gardens (a UNESCO world heritage site). And if your holidays aren't complete without an unusual experience, you can go hot-air ballooning here!

For days out, the world famous Lascaux caves are less than 20 miles away, and the fascinating Grottes de Villars just 28 miles. Sarlat and several famous towns and villages along the river Dordogne are within easy reach. One of France's "most beautiful villages" - St Leon sur Vezere - is not far either. If you appreciate history, chateaux, prehistoric painted caves with stunning rock formations, natural beauty, great cuisine and authentic rural France, you will find it all here in the Perigord Noir region. The only question is, will a week be long enough!

On first impressions this looks like an ordinary farmhouse but it’s not!  Tastefully decorated and furnished with absolute comfort in mind.  Italian bathroom and shower fitments, lovely linens and a upper floor bedroom that is quite amazing.  The clever owner has used many natural materials, creating an artistic home, and outside is just as good!  It’s peaceful here and Tourtoirac village is charming with its old stone houses and ruined abbey.  Excellent base for visiting this popular part of the Dordogne.
