We are pleased to offer a selection of the highest quality holiday villas in the Dordogne. South-west France’s Dordogne department is a well-established choice for dependably sophisticated villa holidays, retaining naturally unspoilt, historic atmosphere while ably catering for many visitors and resident ex-patriots.
The Dordogne river twists slowly through this green, beautifully rustic region where every mile rewards exploration by car or canoe, bicycle or hot-air balloon.
The Hundred Years War saw English kings campaigning in the Dordogne for generations to rule this now tranquil land; the region is dotted with over a thousand majestically-situated castles, many open to the public. The decisive French victory at neighbouring Castillon is still celebrated in colourful style each July.
Luxury Dordogne cottage for rent - Located on the banks of the Dordogne River, within five acres of private grounds, Le Petit Nid is a delightful stone cottage for two people, a short distance from the shops and restaurants of Siorac-en-Perigord.
Le Pelerin is a stone-built Private tennis villa Dordogne with a tennis court, large garden and large pool, a short stroll from the centre of the pretty village of Saint Sozy, and convenient for many attractions in the Dordogne and Lot regions.
Immersed in a splendid agricultural landscape bordered by the Dordogne and Lot rivers, this fully air-conditioned period villa with pool sits in the village of Nadaillac de Rouge, at the very heart of the Perigord Noir - an area famed for its countless chateaux and bastide villages, remarkable gardens, prehistoric caves and prestigious wine appellations.
Dordogne exclusive chateau for rent - Set in the wooded hills of the Dordogne valley, within a large private estate dating back to the 13th century, this aristocratic residence is just a few minutes' drive from the quaint market villages of Lalinde and Beaumont-du-Perigord.
In a central location at the heart of the quaint little town of Riberac, this 18th century former Mayor's residence is a haven of peace and tranquillity, just steps away from shops, restaurants and market. Within a few minutes' drive is the sandy beach of Lake Jamaye offering a range of water sports, whilst horse riding, canoeing, tennis, fishing and cycling are all available locally along the river Dronne.
Centuries of eventful history have left a rich medieval flavour in Dordogne towns like Périgueux and Bergerac, while tiny, spectacularly scenic, fortified bastide villages like Domme and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, make dining-out uniquely memorable.
Names like St Emilion and Perigord are closely associated with their peerless products. Sampling some of the world’s greatest wines, fois gras, truffles, walnuts, cèpes and famous duck dishes at their lovely places of origin, is a singular pleasure.
Sarlat’s extraordinary 14th century centre sums up the attraction of Dordogne as a destination; evocative of richly-flavoured living history, a beautiful region and its luxurious produce, today served to English visitors on plates, not pikestaffs.
