General Description

Kid-friendly features abound at this 18th century villa in the Dordogne. Here the whole family will love their holiday spent high above the rolling French countryside. The playset in the garden, indoor games, and private child-safe pool will keep the kids entertained all day. Meanwhile, parents will adore the classic holiday villa feel: stone walls, wood-burning fireplaces, and simple, rustic furnishings.

Soak in the sun on loungers by the pool, or dine al fresco on the stone patio, overlooking the large (2500 sq m) garden. Or set off on a hike - there's no shortage of beautiful paths here on the edge of the rural town of Grèzes. In nearby Terrasson-Lavilledieu (7 km), you'll find the Gardens of the Imagination - a beautiful 13-part landscape installment presenting mankind's transition from nature to city life. Also convenient to Terrasson are restaurants, cafes, a cinema, and supermarket.

Farther afield, a day trip to Périgueux (65 km) is worth your while. This medieval town hosts a daily market where you'll find the delicacies of the Dordogne; most notably foie gras and truffles. If you fly in through Brive-la-Gaillarde (30 km), stay awhile! The locals exude 'Gaillarde' - lusty, robust good humour.
