THE VILLAGE AND LOCAL REGION
Villefranche-du-Perigord is a medieval, historic, Bastide village dating back to the 13th century and has many interesting features. It has everything you need for day to day life with a wealth of shops including 2 bakeries, a butcher, a deli and 2 food stores. There is a hardware store, a bank, a pharmacy, a medical centre, a newsagent with English newspapers and, in season, 5 restaurants/bars. All within 2 - 10 minutes stroll. The village has tennis courts, a boule court and a pool.

The region is dotted with beautiful towns and villages. Particularly well known are Monpazier, Dome, Sarlat, Bergerac and Cahors.

There is a strong culture of wine and cuisine reflected in many restaurants and fabulous markets. Locally there are many summer festivals.

We have owned this house for 20 years and have been renting it out very successfully for the past 18 years. Prior to purchasing this property we looked at many homes in the countryside around Villefranche-du-Perigord. Ultimately we decided to buy this house because of it's unique location on the edge of the village. This gives us, and anyone who rents the house, the opportunity to participate in daily, village life. In addition to being within a few minutes walk from the local cafes, restaurants and shops, we have the joy of an unspoilt pastoral view over the wooded hills of the region.

An oasis from the turbulence of modern life, we are sure you will love it.

A Wonderful Time...

By B Ragetli on 24-Jul-2021

We had a wonderful time in the cozy authenticate house in the lively small vIllage Villefranche du Périgord. The views from the garden where beautiful. And it was so so quiet, except for a rooster calling from far far away. The swimming pool was great!! Though we visited France many times before we never had been to the Dordogne. It was a really pleasant surprise. Lots of quiet roads, small villages, lots of things to do and good places to eat. Guest rating: 5 Stars

A Perfect Vacation

By James Brookman on 28-Sep-2019

We had a wonderful time exploring the Dordogne region and this lovely house was the perfect base to do so. It's situated on the edge of the charming village of Villefranche-du-Perigord and only a 2 minute walk from all the shops and cafes, yet it's very quiet with a private backyard and sparkling pool. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a sunny terrace overlooking the pool for al-fresco dining. Upstairs the bedrooms are light and bright with views of the surrounding countryside and the upstairs bathroom is shiny and new. We spent our days visiting so many beautiful villages and gardens nearby, each one a treat. Two of our favourites were Le Château des Milandes with the fascinating Josephine Baker museum and the stunning Les Jardins de Marqueyssac where we hiked among the most extraordinary topiary and had a lovely lunch in the restaurant. And as we were there during the Rugby World Cup, I would have my early morning espresso at the Cafe De La Poste just up the street and watch the games with the locals. A perfect vacation.

Our family of four (2 adults and kids aged 10 & 8) stayed at this wonderful property in July 2019. The property is exactly as described. A cool, cosy and homely lounge (with UK TV!) and a lovely large kitchen (with very good utensils) link to a fantastic terrace and garden. The kids lived the pool and it was appreciated in the heat of the day. The garden was large and the view over the valley each day was mesmerising. Upstairs were two lovely bedrooms and a good bathroom. We were welcomed by a lovely local lady who made sure we were fully able to work the pool etc, and provided excellent advice as to local markets etc. The village was sleepy, attractive and very friendly. 2 great small super markets, a boulangerie and patisserie, tabac and butchers and a few cafes, bars, restaurants and a bookshop. Perfect and by the end of the week we became very fond of such lovely people and such a beautiful village. Don’t miss the fantastic Tuesday food market. Further afield the rivers of the Lot and Dordogne were a pleasant 40 min drive away with great swim spots and more touristy but beautiful attractions and sites. Don’t miss canoeing down the Dordogne, wine tasting in Cahors & Monpazier & Puy-L’Eveque.
