Acabanes is very flexible accommodation and can equally be enjoyed by a couple or by a large group.

There are extensive facilities for all ages and interests. If there is something which will make your holiday perfect, then please let me know and I will endeavour to purchase it for your stay.

Acabanes is part of the LUXURY DORDOGNE VILLAS group, which also owns La Grange Sud Home Away reference 442184. This 2nd villa is 6 miles from Acabanes, a slow 10 minute drive away through single track lanes or a beautiful cycle ride on the complimentary bikes. If you have a larger group than Acabanes can accommodate then you may be interested in booking La Grange also.

Acabanes is a large, beautifully renovated French villa in a lovely area of the Western Dordogne, close to Bergerac, Duras and Eymet.

It is full of charm and character, yet modernised to the highest standards with extensive facilities, and is situated in a quiet location on the side of a gentle hill with lovely south facing views over the surrounding rolling countryside and vineyards.

GREAT ASSET!! - Matthew, our optional, in house chef, who offers a range of very affordable dining options at Acabanes. Large groups love having this option. Please contact Tracey for his brochure and more details.

This luxury villa has been designed and equipped for outdoor living, with a large (11x5m) superb heated salt water pool with retractable cover, which means it can be used as an indoor/outdoor pool.

We cater for all sizes of parties and can accommodate both the very young; the elderly; or those with limited mobility/wheel chair users.

Extensive equipment is provided complimentary for infants and young children. There is no need to bring any of your babies or childrens equipment with you which means you have the option of flying to Bergerac or Bordeaux if you prefer.

The villa has extensive grounds of approximately three acres and has 5 terraces and a balcony. The outdoor areas are ideal for general relaxation and various sporting activities for all the family to enjoy. A large sports box is provided for guests.

The covered tiled terrace is ideal for BBQs, with table and chairs provided for 'al fresco' dining or just simply enjoying the views over the garden and surrounding countryside.

There is a Solar heated shower adjacent to the swimming pool.

There are 6 terraces;

1. 5x4m outside the downstairs Lavender bedroom

2. 6x4m outside the Green bedroom with an inlaid giant chess board

3. between these terraces and underneath the large balcony is timber deck with a John Lewis Day Bed

4. 4x3m first floor balcony faces west and is an ideal point to view the pool and enjoy a sundowner to watch the sun set

5. Breakfast terrace for the morning sun leads from the kitchen.

6. Covered main terrace leading from the kitchen

Atmospheric lighting throughout enables the pool and terraces to be used late into the evening.

The gardens extend to over 3 acres with a fenced lower garden of 2 acres. This large garden is perfect for football with football goals, and rounders. There is also a supersize trampoline, childrens play area, sand pit, Wendy House and boules.

A championship pool table is also in the lounge area which our guests really enjoy and many tournaments are enjoyed late into the evening.

About Tracey Jones

I have lived in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England since 1994. This is where our children also grew up and is our family home. Our daughter lives in Cape Town with her husband and our son live in the Dordogne, France. Although we live many miles apart we manage to have family get togethers often, thanks to Air Miles and being self employed! Many of our guests hire Acabanes for special family reunions and we understand the importance of how special these holidays are.

Tracey Jones purchased this villa in 2000

Why Tracey Jones chose Perigord Pourpre

We decided to purchase Acabanes in 1999 after enjoying many special holidays in this region while the children were young.

We have travelled all over the world but genuinely believe that this area of the Dordogne is magical. It is very peaceful and relaxing, but there are also many activities to participate in, including, wine tasting, golf, go karting, canoeing, walking, cycling, restaurants.

The region also has fantastic weather and is wonderful to visit at any time of the year.

I will help plan your holiday so that you need not find any part of it stressful, including the travel, overnight accommodation, golf tee times, restaurant reservations, special occasion meals, groceries bought for arrival - the list is endless and I am here to help you!

What makes this villa unique

We chose Acabanes due to the peaceful surroundings and single track lanes that make it perfect for walking and cycling. However, it is not isolated and you can reach great attractions very easily and quickly. Please visit our website Luxury Dordogne Villas for full details and also please contact me as I can offer complimentary assistance to ensure your holiday is perfect for you and your fellow travellers.

Perfect Villa for an out of Season Break

  • 5 of 5

We visited end of March for an out of season break for four days to visit family who live locally. We frequently do this and fly down from Southampton to Bergerac with Flybe. The Villa has a heated pool, rare for France, and the house in perfect, with log burners in the main living and kitchen areas and heating in the bedrooms. So well equipped inside and out. Local restaurants, markets, wine tasting at vineyards, golf , little villages and towns all within easy reach.highly recommended

Property and its location are simply beautfiul.

  • 5 of 5

The property, the grounds, its location and all the facilities and equipment are all brilliant. My family and I, together with my sisters family and my mum, 10 of us in total had an amazing two weeks in the villa. Tracey was absolutely amazing to deal with and her contact with me, information she provides and suggestions of things to see and do were simply the best I have ever experienced. We had a wonderful two weeks in the villa, swimming in the pool, bike riding and exploring the surrounding countryside. Be sure to visit Chateau Thenac at the top of the hill, we did a wine tour and tasting which was excellent. Thanks Tracey for making our holiday in your villa so wonderful and relaxing, you really have thought of everything!

Very nice, well maintained holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Acabanes to celebrate a birthday with our family comprising eight adults ranging in age from 39 to 82, two teenagers and a six-year-old. The house appeared to be very well equipped for all ages. Particularly the swimming pool with its constant 24-degree temperature and the pool table have been frequently used.

The house is very complete, has a well equipped kitchen and has enough space for a party of our size.

We had marvelous weather so we spent most of the time outdoors, but there are enough possibilities in case the weather is less attractive.

The information supplied by Tracey is very completeand and her follow up is excellent.

First class holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party ranging in ages from 70 to 7. The villa accomadated us all, with every possible activity you could want. We swam,cycled,played football,cricket and rounders. There was also the gym,sauna,pool table and table tennis. Difficult to tear the younger members away from the villa. An excellent holiday home for all ages. We had a holiday that will always be remembered as very special. I would also recommend Matthew 'the in house chef'. He prepared two excellent meals at the villa , and we also visited his pop up restaurant.
