About this listing
La Garanne is a family friendly, comfortable farmhouse located on the outskirts of a village in the beautiful Dordogne. There are shops within walking distance, but the property is quiet as a whisper and has expansive views over the valley.
The house is well set up for famillies with a cot and highchair available and there are games and books too.
We are 10minutes drive to Chateau Durantie in Lanouaille, which is a popular place for weddings.
Superb cycling country means you will never be lost for a new route to explore and there is golf nearby. Bikes are available at the property free of charge.
We provide a welcome pack with all the essentials and are happy to provide a more substantial one if you will be arriving late at night, just let us know what you would want. Our property manager lives local and is on hand if you need it. The house is clean and tidy and is set up for year round living, it's not just a holiday home. The gardens have been planted out last year and the expansive lawn is great for the kids to run about or a fun game of badminton.
The house is fully self contained and has a large garden with a big lawn and beautiful views. There is a large oak pergola with an outdoor table and chairs for dining alfresco. A washing line, childrens paddling pool, bikes and childrens toys and games.
Interaction with Guests
The property manager lives local but no one lives on site so guests have the place to themselves.
The house is on the edge of Payzac village but it is very quiet.
There is no public transport, you will need a car to get to and from the property. Once there you can easily walk into the village or ride a bike.

Rachel was a wonderful host who was very helpful getting all information to us that we required. We had such a relaxing, peaceful week and our nearly two year old daughter had a ball running around the grounds. There were also lots of toys for her to play with which was much appreciated. We loved the local food and being such a short drive away from Brantome and other beautiful towns was great. We would love to come back and stay longer next time.
La Garanne is a fantastic place, peaceful and quiet. Beautifull views from the pergola!
The house is well equiped and you feel at home instantly.
What we really loved about it, is the fact that its the last house of a dead end street, so our 2 year old daughter was able to examin the space around the house without any cars driving by.
We did not have lots of sun so swimming in the lake nearby was not an option unfortunately, but we enjoyed an afternoon in a swimming pool in a nearby town.
Thanks to Rachel for this perfect last minute opportunity and helpful information beforehand.
If you re looking for a quiet place with beautiful surroundings where kids can run around freely and enjoy nature in the Dordogne, this is your place!
We would love to come back one day!
Très belle situation, paisible, on se sent vite comme chez soi, confortable et jolie décoration. Et la pergola est parfaite pour boire un verre ou prendre le petit-déjeuner en admirant la vue !
About the Host, Rachel
I am originally from UK, and now live in Sydney with my husband and 2 kids. Our house in France was my Father's and we love visiting there so much we want to share it with everyone. We only get to go there once a year so it is a shame not to have people use it.
