The
Experience

You’re close to the main road to Sarlat and the Dordogne’s attractions yet it’s very tranquil here. Alice has her own quarters so you’ll feel quite private, the garden is pretty and there are views over low wooded hills and the river.

Choose between breakfast on your own private terrace or sit with other guests round the kitchen table for homemade jams, local yogurt, three types of bread, fresh pastries and fruit salad. If the weather is bad there’s a comfy sitting room next to the kitchen with a big TV and loads of channels.

There’s much watery fun to be had on the river just a ten-minute stroll away, or you can walk its banks for miles. Riding, fishing and cycling are easily organised and if you don’t want to go out for dinner Alice (a private chef in Paris for many years) can offer you beautiful home cooking with much from her kitchen garden or local producers.

Reviews

Alice is a honey: just relax into her warm welcome and enjoy a few sybaritic days in her eclectically decorated home. The gardens are a delight and the location perfect for enjoying all that the Dordogne valley has to offer then returning to perfect tranquillity. A haven.

Location

The neighbourhood

Walk just 100 metres down the lane to visit the Moulin du Trel, a restored walnut oil mill, or 10 minutes to the River Dordogne for walks, canoeing and picnics. You’re a five-minute drive from the magnificent Château de Beynac and 15 minutes’ drive from the picturesque town of Sarlat-la-Canéda, which has well-preserved Gothic and Renaissance mansions and a Saturday market. For fine dining, the Belle Etoile in La Roque Gageac is less than 15 minutes’ drive.

Local points of interest from Alice Della Monta

  • Take a trip to the famous Lascaux caves just 40 mins away, and the International Centre for Cave Art for a fascinating insight into ancestral art of the area.
  • Visit the impressive Marqueyssac gardens, the most visited garden in Perigord just a 30 min walk away, or the family owned Manor d'Eyrignac and its 7 gardens for beautiful sculpted hedges and 200-hectares of forest.
  • Enjoy Sarlat’s yearly theatre and games festival in summer and the autumnal film festival too. At Christmas, Sarlat lights up with the festive market and skating rink for 3 whole magical weeks!
  • Stretch your legs at the Sarlat Adventure Park’s assault course, paintballing and climbing or explore the fascinating Zoological Reserve Calviac, 25 mins away which homes endangered species from Europe, Madagascar, South America and Australasia.
  • Just ask for recommended hiking and horse-riding routes to explore Vezac and Perigord’s stunning scenery, as well as the several golf courses nearby. Admire the views with a trip down the rivers on a barge or even canoe and kayak.
  • The footpath along the house runs through the forest to the Beynac castle, a 12th century site that is very well preserved and one of the most famous of the region. Wander into Vézac for an aperitif at the several brasseries and admire the views..

Introducing

Alice Della Monta

Alice and her husband bought the property as a holiday home over 30 years ago and chose to retire here. Alice worked for a marketing company and did company lunches, which evolved into guests asking her to cook private dinners and lunches – don't miss the opportunity to try her wonderful cooking. She’s now decided to 'make the house live again' by launching her B&B business.
