À propos de ce logement
Simply stunning Farmhouse in the heart of the Périgord Noir just minutes drive from Domme, Sarlat, Daglan, La Roque Gageac and Beynac. Sleeps 8 in great comfort, 2 bathrooms, seperate toilet, stunning terraces and a shared free form swimming pool.
Three bedrooms. Two large doubles, both gorgeous, 1 triple with a futon for an extra child. The children are this way all in the same room.
The kitchen and living room and outside terraces are so lovely that one set of visitors recently wanted to take it all home with them so instead they have copied the lay out and built their house around The Farmhouse. We were very touched!

You will have the stunning pool almost to yourselves; it is shared just with The Old Workshop (also on Airbnb) which sleeps two people.
The swimming pool is not just a swimming pool; it is a work of art in its own right!

If you need me I am here; unobtrusive but available :-)
The problem with describing the area where we live is to know exactly where to start. It is so beautiful, so rich in activity, culture and that 'Je Ne Sais Quoi' that only the French possess that it makes the following task quite tricky! But I will endeavor to tell you just why you should come and visit us.
Daglan is stunning so let us start with our home village. We live 3 km up the hill from this quintessentially Perigordine village and it is here that we take the children to school, gossip at the market and occasionally indulge in a meal at the fantastic Petit Paris and La Cantine in the village square. The village was taken into hand about 7 years ago and spruced up and polished and scrubbed and neatened by the ambitious Maire who was in residence at the time. He accomplished something quite lovely and we are all proud of our village and the people in it too. The Church is very pretty especially inside, the little shop is run by a delightful couple, there are Artisan shops everywhere. It is a jewel of a village and you will see why when you come!
Our little hamlet of Le Peyruzel is gorgeous as well. No shops but a real living/working community of farmers and everyday people living here in the peaceful countryside that surrounds us. The walks we have from here are fabulous and the new bike tracks are amazing with the added luxury of having your bicycles delivered to La Prairie! The walk from La Prairie down to Daglan takes about 40 minutes.
Approximately 15 minutes from La Prairie are Domme, La Roque Gageac, Beynac, Castelnaud, the river, the castles, the gardens.....
Domme is stunning; a hilltop village that is like something out of a fairytale but then again so is La Roque with its medieval houses built into the rock. Beynac castle is awe inspiring, Monfort Castle is breathtaking. Les Jardins De Marqueyssac and Eyrignac are extraordinary. Sarlat is so stunning as to be quite overwhelming especially visited early when you have it to yourself.
Our local restaurants are delicious; Le Petit Paris in Daglan is the best place to sit outside as is the wonderful Cantine by Fabrice Le Chef. La Belle Etoile, our favorite, is the best place for a meal and the loveliest terrace anywhere. Our local Auberge serving fabulous wholesome home produced food is a must.
Then there is Rocamadour, Eagles Rock, the must see Gouffre De Padirac, the indispensable Font De Gaume...
I could go on forever but the best thing to do is to have a look at our website and it will lead you to everything you need to know........But just before I sign off and let you discover our website in peace and quiet let me talk about what there is to do for the children. We have 6 children so we know pretty much all there is to know about their dreams and hopes whilst on holiday with Mum and Dad.
For the tiny ones and young ones we have provided the beautiful pool. The gate is difficult to open and there is an alarm system so you can really relax! There are two log cabins, a football goal and space to play Swallows and Amazons! You can take them to a castle and they can become a Knight or a Damsel. How about walking around the gardens in Marqueyssac which is illuminated with thousands of candles every Thursday night in the summer? Go to Sarlat to watch the miming acts, the street artists. How about Eagles Rock to watch the birds of prey? Sounds boring? Would it convince you if I told you they walk on your head, over your legs, swoop down, narrowly missing your ears and the Griffon Vultures weigh 13kgs and have a wingspan of nearly 10 feet? How about the aquarium in Le Bugue? Not content with fish, the owners have provided Anacondas, Pythons, Caimans and fish you can stroke (all ages love this) and the wonders of the fish themselves, the size of the sturgeons are breathtaking and if you are lucky there will be someone in the huge tank swimming with them. And what is there for the teenagers, the budding teenagers and the young in us all to do? That age can be difficult to say the least so here are some things to consider! There is the pool, swimming in the Dordogne, horse riding, paint balling, hot air ballooning, kayaking, canoeing, tree top trekking, cycling, rock climbing, pot holing, being punted down an underground river, being lowered in a basket to an underground cave, exploring the Chateau De Castelnaud and if you are really desperate to please them there is a McDonalds in Sarlat!
So go ahead and discover our website and we hope to see you very soon.
