La Foret Villefranche Features
Book for 2 or for 4 people
The accommodation is set in 7 acres of gardens and paddocks, is surrounded by forest and comprises the Gite with a king size bed, and an additional self contained Apartment, with a double bed, which you can book in addition to the Gite for other friends or family.
If you choose to book the Gite for 2, you will still have exclusive use of the pool and grounds and the Apartment will remain vacant.
The Gite is a short distance from the owners house, has its own private entrance and secluded deck area and is set in a peaceful private setting overlooking woodland.
It has a large double bedroom, lounge, dining area, kitchen and shower room.
The Gite remains available for rental on it’s own, and when this option is taken, the Apartment would be vacant, and the pool would remain exclusively for the Gite guests.
Completed in 2020, we are pleased to offer the new Apartment in addition to the lovely Gite.
The Apartment has a double bed and sleeps two people. It is finished to a high standard, and has a lovely contemporary feel, within the 200 year old stone barn.
The deck gives a quiet area to eat and relax, with views over the paddock.
The Apartment is only available for rental in conjunction with the Gite, meaning a total of four friends or family could holiday together at La Foret, whilst still having private accommodation space.
The Perigord Noir Region
The Perigord Noir area of the Dordogne is famous for the gastronomic delicacies of truffles, chestnuts and mushrooms, along with local fine red wine.
Villefranche Du Perigord has an annual chestnut festival in the Autumn, celebrating the three main chestnut products of timber, chestnuts and mushrooms. The tourist information building is even named La Maison du Chataigne.
La Foret features spacious accommodation for two/three set in a secluded tranquil setting, with a private deck area, and large pool shared occasionally with owners.
There is an abundance of bird-life, and Red Kites and Buzzards are regular overhead visitors.
It is the perfect base for exploring the South West of France.
The heated swimming pool is 11 metres by 5 metres and is secluded with a paved surround.
Food and Drink
There are plenty of wonderful restaurants offering local food such as confit-duck and the much heralded Cahors wine.
Cahors wine region is a stones-throw away, and wine can be bought directly from the local vineyards. A great way to try the region’s wine.
Bergerac wines are found a short drive west towards the Atlantic coast.
Lakeside eateries and coffee bars are also within easy reach.
The area surrounding us has a wealth of history, including the beautiful Bastide towns of Monpazier and Villefranche.
There are also incredible Chateaux to be explored.
Domme and Sarlat are a short drive away, and the breath-taking views of the buildings and landscapes are incredible.
The Rivers Lot and Dordogne nearby offer a large selection of activities including kayaking, swimming, fishing and river cruising. There is also the opportunity to partake in horse-riding, walking, road and track cycling, tennis, para-gliding and go-karting. There is a golf course a short drive away.
As well as a broadband connection with Wi-Fi, media facilities include a flat screen television linked to an English satellite system.
