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

Set in two and a half acres of land, including woodland, the property is wonderfully secluded and situated in 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 to the front of the property, ideal for all sorts of ball games and recreational activities or just to enjoy the fantastic space and scenery. To the rear there is a terrace with gazebo, table and chairs for alfresco dining and BBQ. A wonderful suntrap.

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 with a BBQ . 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.

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 May to September. Sun loungers and parasols are provided for your comfort.
At the back of the house there is a patio/barbecue area and table/seating for 8 under a gazebo. The rest of the land is mainly woodland.

A super holiday house

By Eileen & Martin Castle on 19-Aug-2023

We spent a week at Chene Bois with our son and grandson and thoroughly enjoyed all it had to offer. Plenty of space, very well equipped, lovely quiet location yet close to the river and beautiful places like Domme and Roque Gageac. Great towels and bed linen provided and even pool towels! Loads of useful kitchen items left by other visitors. The pool is amazing. Well fenced off for safety, very well maintained and perfect for our very hot week. So glad we found this gem of a place. Thank you for all your help Tim. Would love to return.

Thanks for your lovely review Eileen and Martin. You are welcome back any time.

A beautiful villa

By Rachel Kearns on 05-Aug-2023

This is the second time we have visited Chene Bois and it is a truly beautiful place! The villa is great and has everything you could possibly need during your stay. The owners have thought of everything! Air conditioning in the bedrooms is a must when the weather gets hot in august, we had temperatures above 30’s so it was very useful! The pool is a great size with a security gate so young children can’t get in by themselves which is great peace of mind. Lots of loungers, umbrellas and inflatables. The local area is great and has shops and a bar, and the nearby towns are beautiful to walk around and enjoy the scenery. Definitely recommend going canoeing down the river, it’s a great day out! We will definitely be back again!

Superbly equipped Holiday 'home from home' Gite in the verdant Dordogne valley

By David FitzGerald on 22-Jul-2023

The house is really well equipped - in terms of kitchen/catering, the lounge area sofas & armchairs, the patio furniture & gazebo, and the BBQ. The WiFi was also great. The pool is fantastic, very accessible with broad steps into it and sufficient space at various depths to accommodate both the paddlers and the swimmers. The Pool area is great with plenty of loungers for relaxing, lots of umbrellas to provide shade and a very secure railing surrounding the pool area to make it child-safe . You seem to have thought of practically everything that a visitor would need for a home-from-home experience. One of the most compelling features for us was the air conditioning in the bedrooms. We’ve really suffered from the heat in other holiday homes and this made a huge difference in getting a good nights sleep when the weather was really warm. The bedrooms were also a good size for us (6 adults). We contacted the local property manager a couple of times and he was super responsive, very friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend this holiday home.
