The Dordogne: The Dordogne or Périgord region is one of the most beautiful parts of France, well known to the French for its food and wine. There is a saying, “En Périgord, on mange bien, on boit bien”. Périgord is the home of the truffle and foie gras. Numerous local restaurants, with all regional delights, tempt the casual visitor. As a world centre of prehistory, the Dordogne offers countless caves for exploration. The world-renowned Lascaux and Font de Gaume, with their cave paintings and artefact's, are both close by. The national museum of prehistory, only 30 minutes away in Les Eyzies, provides a good starting point. Entrance is free on the first Sunday of every month. Within easy range, too, are chateaux and bastides – medieval fortified towns – which mark turning points of history, from Viking and English domination, to the resistance of the French Protestants. Rocamadour, one of the most beatifull catolique village of France and the most popular.

We organize everythink for you ( map, brochure, food, cooking, cleaning, reservations, bycycles, etc...)

A perfect hideaway :-)

  • 5 of 5

Wer Ruhe sucht, ist in diesem wunderschönen Haus absolut richtig. Wir (Eltern, zwei Kinder, ein Aupair und Hund) und ein befreundetes Ehepaar haben dieses Jahr zwei wunderbare Wochen dort verbringen dürfen. Dieses authentische und aufwendig und viel mit Blick fürs Detail eingerichtete Haus lässt keine Wünsche offen. Dem Charme dieses alten Hauses kann sich wohl niemand entziehen. Man merkt deutlich, dass der Besitzer, Herr Bappel, sich vorab sehr viele Gedanken gemacht hat und wohl auch an Kosten für die Restaurierung nicht gespart hat. Die Einrichtung ist vollständig und sehr umfangreich, aber dennoch nicht übertrieben modern sondern recht authentisch. Es gab nichts, was wir nicht vermisst hätten. Besonders die Raumgestaltung der Schlafräume im Obergeschoss ist märchenhaft schön und romantisch.

Das großen Wohnzimmer mit dem riesigen offenen Kamin bietet sieben Personen mehr als genügend Platz und die gemeinsamen Mahlzeiten am der großen Tafel in Nähe des Kamins lässt einen die Zeit vergessen.

Das Haus selbst liegt absolut ruhig und lädt so wirklich zum Erholen ein. Leider konnten wir im März natürlich den wunderschönen Pool noch nicht nutzen, aber jene Gäste, die über den Sommer anreisen, werden ihn sicherlich ausgiebig genießen.

Landschaftlich ist es wunderschön und man sollte die Zeit dort auch nutzen, sich die vielfältigen Kulturangebote nicht entgehen zu lassen. Wir waren täglich unterwegs und haben die historischen Stätten im groben Umkreis von ca. 150 km besichtigt. Von jung bis alt, es ist für jeden etwas dabei.

Wir alle sind uns einig, dass dies einer der schönsten und erholsamsten Urlaub war (zumindest, seitdem wir Kinder haben ;-)) und wir werden dieses Haus sicherlich als eines der schönsten Ferienressorts gut im Gedächtnis behalten und bei Gelegenheit sicherlich gerne wieder hierher zurückkehren.

Besonders zu erwähnen ist auch die freundliche und hilfsbereit Art von Frau Delmas, der Hausverwalterin vor Ort, sowie die stetige Fürsorge von Herrn Bappel, der uns mehrmals während unseres Aufenthaltes telefonisch kontaktierte um sicherzustellen, dass es uns an nichts fehlt. Man merkt, dass Herr Bappel sich diesem Haus mit Leib und Seele verschrieben hat und dies spiegelt dieses tolle Feriendomizil absolut wider.

Lieber Herr Bappel, vielen Dank dafür, dass Sie dieses Haus so wunderbar erhalten, und wir wünschen Ihnen noch viele Gäste, die Le Presbytere genauso lieben und schätzen lernen wie wir.

Our House

  • 5 of 5

This has been our second year at the Presbythere and still it was as magical and wonderful as the first time.

The surroundings are just magnificent. Our neighbors are: a 17h century castle and a beautiful gothic chapel on the left whose bell rings faithfully twice a day. The little village of Nadaillac is quiet with a simple but delicious restaurant, don't worry you'l, find all the necessities in Souillac which is only fifteen minutes away by car. There is also a plethora of farmers markets in all the villages surrounding the Presbythere.

The house is majestuous and yet feels homey and comfortable ; most rooms are ensuite and we never encountered any problems with arragment considering the number of guests. Each room is well appointed with sheets, comporter, blankets and plenty of towels in the bathrooms.

The kitchen is a delight with a beautiful view and is fit with you'll need to prepare a delicious diner( if you are into it !) or a complete breakfast with the croissants delivered to the house from the restaurant , La Chastrusse, right in town.

Marie and her husband Maurice, the caretakers will welcome you with kindness

and warmth and will always be available if you need anything.

Philippe, the owner, is a pleasure to deal with, always answering any questions very promptly and will make sure that you sejour will be an unforgetable experience.

We really have nothing négative to say about this rental or about our stay in the region as a matter of fact we already reserved for next year and look forward to settle in one more time.

Five stars all the way!

Lovely and peaceful house to share with friends

  • 5 of 5

In May, we had a brilliant week at Le Presbytere with both our families and a few friends. The weather was a perfect 22 to 26 degrees all week. So we lounged by the pool, or explored the areas castles and walks. The house is fantastic. Very spacious and easy to enjoy. The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. We are looking forward to return next year ! Just beautiful. Can't recommend this place enough. Loved it!

Fantastic Place !

Fabulous family fun in jaw dropping location

Every year it is a challenge to find a suitable spot for our family holiday. With 3 kids, their grandparents, and our two lovely labs, finding a place where everyones needs are fulfilled and nobody gets bored can be tricky to say the least.

Philippe gave us the space to do just that. The adults had a magnificent time exploring the prehistoric caves and historical sights that are close by, not to mention the amazing local cuisine. If you like wine and cheese your heading to the right place believe me, the food and craft markets in the charming local towns are simply amazing.

The kids went wild for the sports on offer in the region. Not a single complaint of boredom (unheard of from my lot) for the whole holiday. In the end though, the house is the real attraction. The jaw dropping views, the friendly old horses, the open fire, the fact that you cant see a trace of civilisation apart from a cow farmer on the opposite side of the valley. All in all, pure magic. Imagine the kids going wild in the heated pool, my parents relaxing on the balcony or in the garden with a glass of wine and their books, and my wife and I floating between them and the kitchen (or more often the outside barbeque). It was a truly blissful time. I can not recommend it more highly.

Nice place but poorly described

  • 3 of 5

The place is lovely, the house is lovely with a big pool, and a well equipped kitchen and the local rep M. De Mas was very friendly and we had a great time - However....

The house does not sleep 8, even in the description it only lists 7 beds. There is a sofa bed in the living room but with 8 people, for instance 4 couples who gets the sofa bed?! In comparison to the 3 double bedrooms which are beautiful the sofa bed would be a very disappointing 'short straw'.

There are 4 showers in the house but only 3 toilets so the master bedroom and the single bedroom share a toilet in the tiny bathroom attributed to the single room.

The single room plus its small bathroom across the hall are combined perhaps as large as half of the master bedroom. Another short straw situation.

The description lists all of the following, none which the place has (this was not so much a problem for us as we did not have children or any disabled guests, and are not obsessed with water) :

Hot tub, fitness room, bottled water, filtered water, PC, toiletries, water-cooler, wood stove, tiled stove (there is a BBQ), ice maker, wet bar (?!), games room, pool table, pingpong, video games.

Disabled access- there is a relatively steep set of steps up to the front door and this is the only access to the property.

As I say, these were of little issue to us but if you were choosing this house based on it's extras or it's ability to comfortably accommodate 8 adults you may be disappointed.

You will definitely need a car, there is one restaurant close by which is good and the staff friendly, but they have only one seating in the evening so book early. All other restaurants (several good ones in and around Soulliac) are only reachable by car.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Mr Paul Grey, I am verry sorry reading your coment. Thank you also for your 2 lignes of compliment about the house. I understand you liked the house even though you were expecting more service and furnitures. No one ever complain about this before, because usually, if guests need something, an equipement for example, they phone and I organise myself to provide it in a short delay A lot of furniture are available on request. For example, all the game for children are in the seller of the house (ping pong, badminton, football, tennis , basket ball, petanque ect...) I have done the best to make pictures high quality and view from sky to show exactly the house. On my web site, we indicate the square meters of all the rooms , bedrooms, bathrooms of the house. The house is fully equiped for eighth person and some guest do not mind to share their bedroom ( 28, 29 square meters) with their children. I have already corrected on the website the mistake about some furniture's which were not anymore available. Philippe Bappel

Comfortable historic home in Dordogne

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and son-in-law and my husband and I spent a wonderful week in this historic home. The grounds and setting were lovely, with fruit trees and native flowers and a large, inviting pool. We were very comfortable in the house, which maintains its historic character but has all the modern conveniences. One large bedroom is on the ground floor, the others up a somewhat steep staircase. The kitchen is well stocked, and cozy; we ate many meals there, including breakfasts with freshly baked croissants supplied by the local bakery.

The owner was wonderful to work with. Before our arrival, he responded promptly to all my emails and we worked out all details together. He was very flexible about our arrival time - we had run into travel problems with the rail system - and he was at the house to greet us when we arrived. A very pleasant man, he made us feel right at home.

This is an excellent home base for touring the Dordogne region. I highly recommend this property!!

All site like Beynac, Dome, La Roque Gageac, Lascaux, Les Eyzies are at less tham 30 minutes drive.

The house is on one of three hilltop villages within sight (and a short drive) of each other. The beautiful village of Nadaillac captivates the visitor with deer, flower displays and an excellent restaurant. Its illuminated church tower is a landmark at night. St Julien, with fresh bread daily, offers several excellent restaurants. The house, Presbytere, is perched atop Escamps, a hamlet of just a few houses, free from intrusion and visitor activity. An enjoyable 30 minute drive to the south lies the medieval town of Sarlat; a similar distance to the west is Les Eyzies, the ‘capital of prehistory’, while to the north are the celebrated caves of Lascaux, where images of bison and deer. And Rocamadour at 30 mn, one of the most wonderfull village.
