Holiday home near Sarlat, Castelnaud, Beynac and La Roque Gageac.

Set in two and a half acres of land, including woodland, the property has far reaching views across the heart of the Dordogne. It is a short distance to many popular tourist attractions and amenities making it the ideal base for a family holiday, or simply to use as a rural retreat. The house is situated towards the end of a small access road serving 3 properties only, making it very peaceful and tranquil, with no passing traffic.

There is a private 10m x 5m swimming pool with solar cover and Roman steps for warmer water and easy access. In line with current French legislation it is surrounded by a security fence and fitted with a lockable, child-proof gate, for your peace of mind when visiting with young children and non-swimmers. Sun loungers and parasols are provided for your comfort.

Outside there is a very large garden, ideal for all sorts of ball games and recreational activities or just to enjoy the fantastic space and scenery. There is a terrace with gazebo, table and chairs for alfresco dining and BBQ at the rear of the property.

The accommodation comprises a large open-plan lounge/diner with plenty of comfy seating for 8 guests. We have provided UK Freeview satellite TV channels, French satellite TV channels and free, internet WiFi access for your convenience and enjoyment.

There are two sets of double glass doors opening out from the lounge. One on to the terrace with outdoor table and chairs for 8 under a gazebo, BBQ and stunning views across the valley. A perfect place for alfresco dining at the end of the day. The other onto a shady, grassed area, ideal for younger children, at the front of the house.

There is split sleeping accommodation making it ideal for two families sharing. It comprises a self-contained downstairs double bedroom and twin bedroom with separate toilet and bathroom (with over the bath shower) and an upstairs double bedroom and twin bedroom served by a large shower room and toilet. Air conditioning has been fitted for your comfort in all the bedrooms.

There is a fully equipped kitchen and utility room with fridge/freezer, fan oven/halogen hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.

All bed linen and towels are provided, including pool towels.

Everything has been provided for you to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.

If you enjoy stunning scenery, space, peace and quiet, private pool, leisure activities, many places of interest to visit, good food and wine then Chene Bois and the Dordogne is the ideal place to visit at any time of year.

Change-over day is a Saturday.

Please note:

Due to the nature of the terrain at Chene Bois the swimming pool and large garden is accessed by an inclined path up from the house or the steep driveway. The woodland at the rear of the house is also steep and uneven. This makes Chene Bois unsuitable for people with restricted mobility or who are wheelchair dependent.

Please do take a look at all the photos to get a sense of the type of terrain on which the house is situated.

The property has its own drive and large, lawned garden.
The swimming pool (10m x 5m) has been fitted with Solar cover to help keep the water warm (and it does). It is fully fenced off for peace of mind and secured by a gate with a child-proof lock. The pool is available from April to September. Sun loungers and parasols are provided for your comfort.
At the back of the house there is a patio/barbecue area with stunning views across the valley and table/seating for 8 under a gazebo. The rest of the land is mainly woodland.

Utility Room:
The utility room has a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service:
Towels (including pool towels) and linen are included in the rental price. The property will be cleaned before arrival and additional services, including extra cleaning, can be arranged by guests either before or after arrival.

Peaceful rural retreat

By Peter Greaves on 24-Sep-2022

We previously stayed at this property and wanted to return to the area and didn’t even contemplate staying elsewhere. The house is spacious, very well equipped and in a lovely rural location but only a short drive from attractions. There is a wonderful pool and the house easily sleeps 8 people, although there were only 2 of us. We will be sure to return to the property if we go back to this area

Thanks Trevor. You are welcome back anytime. Tim

Chene Bois – fantastic base for a terrific holiday

By Cathy and Dave W on 17-Jul-2022

Chene Bois – fantastic base for a terrific holiday We spent a wonderful week at Chene Bois with our two granddaughters and our daughter, we all agreed it provided everything we could need; location, swimming pool, comfort in air conditioned bedrooms and all necessary household amenities to cater for eating, drinking and leisure. The gite is spacious and comfortable, with all bed linen and towels provided, in the kitchen the fridge and freezer were more than adequate for storing our food and the cooking equipment was ample for our needs. As we were staying during a very hot spell the air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome enabling us all to sleep in comfort. There were plenty of games and puzzles available if we wanted them as well as a host of dvds, but frankly we spent most of our time up at the pool which was lovely for cooling off on some really hot days! The location of the gite is quiet and private but within very easy reach of all the magnificent tourist attractions the Dordogne has to offer and we spent some lovely days by the river visiting Sarlat, Beynac, Castelnaud, Domme and the gardens of Marqueyssac. There are plenty of other things to do like canoeing, cycling and ‘parcs en arbre’ but we only had a week! Overall we would certainly book again and would recommend Chene Bois to anyone who wants to visit the Dordogne region and have a lovely holiday! David & Cathy White – date of stay 9th-16th July 2022

Lovely retreat

By Annette and Chris C on 10-Jul-2022

This year we returned to Chene Bois for the fourth time, it was our first trip abroad since the Covid outbreak and we wanted to visit somewhere familiar that we knew wouldn’t disappoint. Chene Bois is located in a stunning, secluded setting, it’s comfortable, well appointed and has a great pool. There are many places to visit within easy reach and lovely restaurants nearby. We highly recommend Chene Bois and very much look forward to returning again soon.
