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.

Prices are per week for Saturday to Saturday, arriving after 4pm and departing by 10 am on the final day. (We can be more flexible with rental periods outside the peak summer months, so please contact us and let us know your requirements)
Payment can be made in Euros or, if more convenient, in GBPs (at the Euro/GBP exchange rate at time of payment)
Prices include bed linen, bath towels, pool towels and all utilities (gas, water, electricity) and pre-arrival and post-departure cleaning.
No security deposit is required.
Standard Payment Terms:
A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the rental is required at time of booking. (Deposit can be refunded if weeks can be resold.)
The balance is due 6 weeks prior to arrival.

Perfect base to explore the wonderful Dordogne

By Blair on 23-Jul-2022

This quintessential 13th century stone home is the perfect base to explore everything that the wonderful Dordogne region has to offer including fascinating medieval villages, lively food markets, extraordinary chateaux, world class wine, food, a plethora of eating options and so much more. This comfortably appointed home is situated on the edge of the charming village of Villefranche-du-Perigord and only a 2 minute walk from the heart of the village, shops and cafes, yet it''s very quiet with a private backyard and enormous 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. You can spend days visiting so many beautiful villages and gardens nearby, each one a treat and retreat to the poolside area and terrace for respite from the glorious warm weather. The perfect spot for families, couples, and friends. I will be back.

Excellent stay

By Colin Geddis on 15-Aug-2021

We had an excellent stay. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. The combination of being right in town, with a lovely view of the countryside to the back is superb. Sitting on the terrasse looking out at that view was a very relaxing and peaceful way the spend an evening. It was great to be able to walk to the boulangerie in the morning. The internet access was an asset. Madame Ballety was very friendly and helpful as well. We would happily come again.

What a lovely house and pool and garden

By C Belton, J&J Potter on 16-Jun-2021

What a lovely house and pool and garden. Thank you so much. The weather has been brilliant - apart from one day. Because we were so content there was no need for TV in the evening. We ate out every day - Beynac, Boulogne (twice), Villefranche (twice), Monpazier (brilliant market - even though it rained). We’ve had a very lazy time. Loving the insects - lizards, and black Redstart birds. Madame Ballety very helpful. We bought you a new pool thermometer - a whale named Willy. Poor Daffy Duck just kept sinking - he has a new role as a land thermometer having been found in the filters. No longer up to the job. Thank you. P.S. Loved the salt water pool.
