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 beautifully landscaped 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.

Reviews

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.

David

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.

Tessa

Superb property. Lots of space for our family of 4 but plenty of room for 2 families. Everything in good order and well thought out. Blindingly obvious that this is the owners' second home with associated love, attention, comfort and quality. Every facility you could want. Pool wonderful - great size and good temp. Excellent location - private and secluded (very quiet) but 7-8min drive to baker/butcher/restaurant and wealth of activities within 30 min drive. Views lovely. Owner incredibly helpful before and during stay. Photos here do not do justice. We will definitely return.

Tom

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.

Location

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 City Jet from London Docklands(variably on Friday, Saturday and Sunday) or Ryanair Stansted (Wednesday and Saturday) to Brive only 27 miles away
  • 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.
  • 2017 is our 23rd consecutive year of successful letting with over 200 parties. 17 groups have taken three holidays or more and 17% of our guests have returned. French TV channels are also available on the first floor living room
