Charming Perigordine style Self Catering Holiday House with Heated Swimming Pool near the medieval market town of Sarlat in the heart of the Dordogne.

This delightful self catering holiday house is located in a secluded hamlet between Domme and Sarlat, within easy reach of the many attractions of this beautiful region of South West France.

Le Pech de Giroux (floor area = 200 m2), is over 200 years old, built from the local golden limestone, has been carefully restored to a very high standard, retaining all original features with exposed stonework, inglenook fireplaces and beams. There are two comfortable living rooms, each with English satellite TV. French television channels and a DVD player are also available. This self catering holiday house is very well equipped and has been tastefully furnished in sympathy with its traditional style and character. There is air conditioning in four of the bedrooms.

There are 3 acres of private grounds with a professionally designed and landscaped garden, an enclosed, heated swimming pool, a meadow and woods. There is a large, sunny, south-facing terrace at the front of the house with beautiful views across the Dordogne valley. In fact all the rooms in the holiday house have wonderful views.

The private swimming pool is 10 metres by 5 metres, fully enclosed with lockable gates and an alarm for the safety of children. The swimming pool depth is 0.9 metres at the shallow end and 2.1 metres at the deep end for diving. At the shallow end are four ‘Roman End’ steps. There are sun bathing areas on three sides of the swimming pool with superb views across the meadow and the valley. Sun loungers with cushions are provided. The swimming pool is heated to 25°c free of charge and it is maintained weekly.
The terrace area at the front of the holiday house is laid to flower beds, paving and gravel. There is an outdoor dining table with chairs and gas barbecue. The table tennis table and bike storeroom are in an area beyond the terrace.

I just wanted to drop you a line Anne to say what a wonderful time we had at Le Pech last week. 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. Thank you for your recommendations for a restaurant as well, we enjoyed a big family lunch on the last day there and Amelia loved the little play area and the frogs in the pond. The food was very good too! Rob and I also discovered Pirates du Perigord just past Carsac-Aillac on the way to Sarlat which was great for kids and the pizza was fantastic. I know you have grandchildren so I thought I would pass that on, it was Amelia’s favourite place that we ate as there were ducks and she had space to run around. 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, a deer and the bats that came flitting out of the eaves each evening about 9.15, the only thing we didn’t tick off was the snowy owl that belonged to the neighbour! 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. Thank you once again!” Leanne

 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. Once again many thanks for our holiday, from the moment we first communicated everything was excellent.”   The Sweeney Family

 I would like to add my thanks for a wonderful holiday at Le Pech. We really appreciated the various sleeping options, the BBC on TV to watch the Wimbledon Final, 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 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. 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 at Le Pech! Many thanks again for allowing others to enjoy your house.” The Begg Family

“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 are 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.” Daniel

 “We had an incredible two weeks and think you are very lucky to have such a beautiful house.  The pool was totally fabulous and the children were in bits when we made them get out on the last morning.  We loved the location too – so much within a 20 minute drive.  We only had one major excursion (Padirac/Rocamadour) but felt like we managed an awful lot on top of oodles of relaxing and swimming time. It was great to have a good kitchen with everything we needed.  The only thing I thought it missed was a decanter – and then I found it on the last day – having spent two weeks using a jug!!!  Lovely too that upstairs was as nice as downstairs (so often not the case with rental properties!)  We slept very well.  I think this is because you are ‘owner occupiers’ as it were.  We found another property in the Alps last year with a similar set up and loved it to bits.  I’m not sure we need to look for more villas now and very much look forward to visiting Le Pech de Giroux again in the next few years.Tom
