Acabanes has extensive facilities for all ages and interests. If there is something which will make your holiday just what you want it to be, then please let me know and I will endeavour to purchase it for your stay.

Acabanes is a large, beautifully renovated French villa in a lovely area of the Western Dordogne, close to Bergerac, Duras and Eymet.

It is full of charm and character, yet modernised to the highest standards with extensive facilities, and is situated in a quiet location on the side of a gentle hill with lovely south facing views over the surrounding rolling countryside and vineyards.

Acabanes has been designed and equipped for outdoor living, with a large (11x5m) superb heated, salt pool with retractable cover, which means it can be used as an indoor or outdoor pool.

We cater for all sizes of parties and can accommodate both the very young plus the elderly.
Extensive equipment is provided complimentary for infants and young children. There is no need to bring any of your babies or childrens equipment with you, which means you have the option of flying to Bergerac or Bordeaux if you prefer.

The villa has extensive grounds of approximately 3 acres and has 4 terraces. The outdoor areas are ideal for general relaxation and various sporting activities for all the family to enjoy. A large outdoor games box is provided for guests.
The covered tiled terrace is ideal for bbq's, with a huge table and lots of chairs for 'al fresco' dining or just simply enjoying the views over the garden and surrounding countryside.

Pool and Terraces: The pool and terraces have been designed to produce the maximum space for guests whilst maximising individual space. The 11 x 5m pool is surrounded by a very large sheltered terrace with many sunbeds and sun shade. The pool is fitted with a retractable telescopic pool cover. Atmospheric lighting throughout enables the pool and terraces to be used late into the evening.

There are 4 terraces;
1. 5 x 4m outside the downstairs Lavender bedroom
2. 6 x 4m outside the Green bedroom with an inlaid giant chess board
3. Between these terraces is a deck
4. Covered main terrace leading from the kitchen. The gardens extend to over 3 acres with a fenced lower garden of 2 acres. This large garden is perfect for football with football goals, and rounders. There is also a supersize trampoline, childrens play area and Wendy House

Ground Floor
The focal point of the barn is a vast sitting room measuring 9m x 8m and which is open to a magnificent timbered 'cathedral' ceiling. This sitting room is full of character with the original stone walls and tiled floors. Located within the lounge is an entertainment area which includes a 50in SMART TV connected to a dvd.. A championship pool table is also in the lounge area which our guests really enjoy and many tournaments are enjoyed late into the evening. There are lots of board games also for all ages for our guests to enjoy. The kitchen and dining area leads from the sitting room. This area is 9m x 4m with tiled floors and oak fitted units. It also has a large SMEG dual fuel oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and large fridge/freezer. The kitchen opens through double frenchdoors, onto a partly covered tiled terrace where guests can enjoy a Weber charcoal and gas bbq.

Great villa and fantastic host

By Mary Burt on 15-Jun-2024

Superb accommodation with incredible thought given to provide all the equipment any family could need to make for a fun and relaxing holiday. On cloudier days we used the abundance of bikes, helmets even water bottles provided to explore the beautiful area. Table tennis, pool and table football tournaments were great fun. The large enclosed, totally secure garden meant our 2 dogs had free rein of the total property without any risk of them escaping. The heated pool had a lockable roof cover and was also in a secure enclosed area with gated, lockable entrance removing any concerns of potential accidents with children.. Those of us who were inclined used the gym facility. Children and babies equipment was in abundance, along with the toys inside and outside. Tracey was at hand instantly and dealt with any problems that we had. Unfortunately we had a hospital emergency and she immediately organised for her daughter to liaise with the hospital to explain the situation for us. She organised dinner out - which was fabulous and also our trip to the local vets. An excellent, hassle free, unforgettable holiday with fond memories. Highly recommended.

A Return Trip with Expanding Family

By John on 04-May-2024

We returned after our first holiday 13 years ago, this time to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and 40th and 21st birthdays, plus an extra four grandchildren! This time we travelled via Portsmouth - Caen ferry with our labradoodle Augustus, other family members flying into Toulouse and Bordeaux, and our eldest granddaughter taking advantage of the dirt cheap last minute one-way flight out of Bergerac. Acabanes is maintained to high standards and accommodates every wish for a home from home stay. It is a very peaceful beautiful location, amenities are close-by, plenty of wine to sample locally and drink!!!, and Tracey our host is very attentive and quickly responds to email. An excellent holiday over two weeks was had by all, we never ventured far..... simply chill out at Acabanes.
