This is a home more than a vacation house, whether you are a couple or a party of nine, you will find the house comfortable and inviting. The house offers all conveniences set in a charming Villa perched over the Dordogne River. A true escape!

The Space

Spend your vacation at our 200 year old villa, exquisitely restored, set midst spacious gardens, with a stone terrace overlooking the Dordogne river. Driving through the wrought iron gates under the tiled roof entrance, the house beckons at the end of the circular driveway. The Perigordian architecture, with its charming tiled, pitched roof, balconies, and covered porch, speaks of a bygone era. The entry hall welcomes you with Italian tiles and a curved, staircase, opening onto the salon, complete with beamed ceilings, exposed golden stones, wood floors, antiques, and French doors leading onto the balcony and balastrade-enclosed terrace. The comfortable kitchen/family room room offers an ideal entertaining, cooking environment. The spacious kitchen with handmade tiles, has French doors opening onto the covered porch. The upstairs offers four bedrooms, including a master bedroom with connecting bath and beamed ceilings, exposed stones.

The Neighborhood

Where to begin! The area is called the "Land of 1001 Chateaux" and there might be just a few more than that. The house is in a perfect position in the small picturesque town of Vitrac while only 6km outside of the bustling medieval town of Sarlat. I can't say enough about the beauty and tranquility of the area. You have to take a canoe or kayak ride down the river, within walking distance from the house!

Getting around

Parking is included. We are out in the country so a car is necessary unless you are a bike enthusiast.

  • The villa was a wonderful place in which to base ourselves for our exploration of the Sarlat and wider Dordogne region. Vitrac is a quiet and private spot 'far from the madding crowd' of Sarlat and we were thrilled with the French country style and spaciousness of this beautiful place. We spent many happy hours in the evenings outside on the terrace overlooking the garden and within close proximity of the Dordogne river. The notes that Cynthia has left in the house are very helpful with suggestions for things to do and places not to miss and we really appreciated the quick action taken when we reported a plumbing difficulty. Steve was exceptionally helpful coming to help when needed.

  • This villa is fabulous and amazing value for money. Large and very private, it is extremely well-appointed with everything you need within the house, together with extensive information on regional/local sites. The house has large rooms, nearly all with lovely views, surrounded by wonderful gardens and two lovely terrace areas. There is also a fenced children's play area. The villa is centrally located for exploring the Dordogne. Cynthia is a very good host, responding quickly to all queries. Highly recommend staying here.

  • This is an utterly beautiful place! We so enjoyed our stay...the terrace is an enchanting place to share a glass of rose and some cheese in the beautiful Dordogne! The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking. All the rooms are spacious with big windows that look out on the beautiful grounds. You are near La Roque de Gageac - go take a gabarre ride ... And pinch yourself! You're in Paradise!
