The Experience

Within a couple of miles of the sparkling Dordogne river, an immaculate old house pleasantly shaded by a lime tree – the stone façade gleams in the sunlight and the scent of lavender fills the air. Surrounded by three acres of gardens, meadows and woodland and with miles of uninterrupted views across the valley, you are wonderfully secluded but not too far from civilisation. Inside, the space works brilliantly for families; five charming bedrooms are spread across two storeys, all with lovely features such as beamed ceilings or exposed stone walls. There’s a bright, well-equipped kitchen with a sociable table for eight and two sitting rooms – one with a wood-burner sitting proudly in the charming inglenook fireplace. But in the height of summer, head outdoors for a barbecue, a dip in the heated pool or a stroll around the garden. Beyond the delightful grounds, make a trip to a lake with a sandy beach, the river for unbeatable canoeing and wild swimming, a visit to historic Sarlat to stock up on local produce at the market, or explore ancient villages and châteaux.

This property is in such a wonderful position looking out over the valley. It's very comfortable and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. It's a beautiful part of France and we loved visiting the château's, gardens and historical towns all within easy drive. Would definitely visit again!


Thank you Anne we had a wonderful time. We would love to stay again the the future. It was a fabulous location and a beautiful house.


The house completely took our breath away as we came down the driveway, it was everything we had hoped for and you must feel incredibly proud of it. I am very much missing my morning coffee overlooking the valley today and I'm sure my brother in law is missing his bike ride down to the boulangerie. We also ate somewhere called La Centenaire in Montford which was a superb lunch. But mostly, we stayed and relaxed at La Pech. We managed to spot some wild boars in the woods and a deer! Very much hoping we will be back again next year, party size permitting as I think we've had such a good time that other family members might want to join us next year.


The holiday was fantastic, thank you. We had a great time the house was excellent and we made full use of the pool and barbeque.


Thanks for a wonderful holiday at Le Pech. We really appreciated the various sleeping options, the lovely pool, loungers, parasols and floats especially the crocodile which was a great favourite as was the trampoline for the 3 year olds and the ping pong for the parents. We played tennis every day, used your maps to find a walk, discovered a couple of river beaches and ventured to Sarlat one afternoon but mostly we relaxed! We had gorgeous weather for most of the week and were very grateful for the generous shade of the tree on the terrace where we enjoyed the wine you kindly left for us.


We've just returned from a fantastic holiday with our 9 month old son at Le Pech de Giroux. The setting is amazing, the house is well equipped with everything we needed including a high chair and travel cot for the baby. The garden and views from the house are beautiful and we loved the heated pool. We ate outside for most of our meals. There is lots to do in the area, either for local trips or further afield. We are hoping to return to the property in the near future.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Richard Archer

  • An area of lush green countryside which is bathed in sunshine for much of the year. Winding roads through meadows and forests reveal panoramic views of handsome ancient chateaux and castles, picturesque farms and dovecotes.
  • Fine local wines and superb Perigordian cuisine are good value in the numerous restaurants.
  • The house is situated in a hamlet between picturesque Sarlat with its wealth of Renaissance architecture and the market town of Gourdon, each about 15 minutes' drive.
  • Calais to Le Pech de Giroux by car is 520 miles almost all motorway or dual carriageway. Many of our guests fly from Gatwick EasyJet or Ryanair Stansted to Brive which is only 45 mins away. Bergerac is 90 mins, Toulouse or Limoges 2 hrs
  • The property is set in beautiful countryside and is south-facing with sun all day long. The house is fronted by a terrace with low stone wall and part-shaded by a mature Lime, with three acres of private grounds.
  • 2022 is our 28th consecutive year of successful letting with over 300parties. 29 groups have taken three holidays or more and 19% of our guests have returned. French TV channels are also available in the first floor living room
