Just a 10 min stroll to our local village, Villefranche du Perigord, with shops, cafes and restaurants. One of the oldest and prettiest Bastide villages, dating back to the 12th Century, which still has its cobbled streets with tiny alleyways and large covered market square. 12 mins from Monpazier, 30 mins from Sarlat, Beynac, Les Eyzies and the Dordogne river. Great place for cycling and walking with quiet roads.

Great place for families

By Richard on 07-Sep-2020

We had a fantastic stay at La Borie Grande in Aug 2020, as two families with younger children. Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19, it's worth mentioning the excellent and proactive communication prior to our stay and I'm so pleased we decided to go on holiday. The property is in a beautiful location, the huge grounds immaculately maintained and property clean throughout. Being an old farmhouse, the owners have retained its charm and decor with some quirky pieces of furniture and ornaments, whilst equipping it with everything you'd expect in a top quality modern rental. We loved using the outdoor dining space with the BBQ and pizza oven allowing us to cook many of our meals outside, although the kitchen was sometimes a welcome retreat from the heat of the day! For us, the icing on the cake was the fantastic swimming pool area and gazebo, allowing the adults to cool off in the pool and then sit and chat (and maybe have a drink or two) whilst watching the children playing in the pool for hours on end. Not to mention watching the shooting stars from the balcony in front of the house, incredible! We couldn't recommend the property highly enough and there is also so much to do in the area. We had some great days out to Limeuil and Rocamadour to see the apes and the birds, kayaking on the Dordogne from Vezac to Vitrac and hiring bikes in Castelnaud (both recommended by the owners). A definite must is Le Chien Vert in Besse, which became our favourite eatery!

Perfect Holiday !!

By Colin on 21-Aug-2020

Our third stay at this wonderful property! Our host Tracy was the best as usual, always a warm welcome and makes you feel at home. Her family have built something incredible here! Each time we visit there is something or somewhere new to explore. The well planted and colourful grounds around La borie grande are always well kept and provide a safe and beautiful place for our young to explore nature and see things that you just won’t see if you live in the city - friendly squirrels, busy bees, hungry horses and my favourite the humming bird hawk moths to name just a few! The facilities of the house itself were spotless and very well equipped for anything and everything. Although if the weather is good you may not spend much time inside other than to cool down, it’s just too nice outside! Just walk out the kitchen under the ivy covered walls and go find a comfy nook to sit and read a book, the crystal clear pool and shaded pavilion to escape the heat of the day, the pizza oven terrace to sit and share a meal with friends and family or the raised terrace with a view of the valley to sit and watch the sun go down. If you want to see something not many people see anymore then stay up a few hours after sunset and look south, the night sky and view of the milky way is incredible here in these almost untouched dark skies! This place has it all and it feels like a second home to us, it gets harder to leave each time. But we will be back next year! Until then, à la prochaine!

Wonderful Place

By David on 11-Aug-2020

When our daughter invited us to join them on her family holiday, we were delighted to discover she had picked out our most visited and favourite region in France The weather did help of course, but we wanted to thank you for the obvious care and attention you’ve lavished on the property, set in such a beautiful landscape. Just about everything is first class. The quality so high and the range of items just guaranteed we would be okay. We wanted for nothing . The memories are priceless.
