About Sarah Farwell

We bought ’La Grange’ in March 2013 after spending several holidays with our 2 young daughters in the Dordogne area. It’s a cliché but we totally fell in love with the beauty of the region, its amazing food and wine, the river, the chateaux with their stunning views, night markets and generally the slower pace of life.

The house for us is a gem – we hope it has a homely feel for those who visit and anyone who goes there wants for nothing and enjoys its tranquil and relaxing ambience.

Quiet gem - perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent week in this well equipped holiday home in Blanc near Beaumont du Perigord. Our party include our two boys (youngest 10) and my wife's parents (oldest 80) - so it was Paediatrics and Geriatrics on tour!

The house, with it's back garden/ boule court and pool, was an ideal base to explore the interesting local area.

There are some super local restaurants from, simple to Michelin standard, and a great local supermarketer for the BBQ nights!

Everyone was happy and had a great week.

Beautiful place with a gorgeous pool, perfect for a family getaway

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay! Beautiful pool and converted barn with exposed beams with modern accessories. Lovely town and people nearby with lots of stuff on. Only issues we found were that the town was a drive away so someone always had to drive. Would have been nice to have been provided with some more towels and some washing powder but they are small issues. Be careful if you are on the taller side as there are some low ceilings, doors and beams although my 6 foot 3 boyfriend survived without much issue.

A gorgeous French farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

If you want peace and quite and to sample real France, look no further. It's clean, quite and only a short drive away from a quaint market town. The owners have a great in farmhouse guide on "things to do" and restaurant recommendations, just do them! You can just soak up the sun by the pool if you need to relax, it's nice to have quality options when on holiday. I intend to go back year after year. It's genuinely the perfect bolt hole for a family or a romantic retreat.

A Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely farmhouse! Lots of character and an easy space to live in during our hol. It was fully equipped with everything you could want and the BBQ area was great for sitting out in the evenings. Location wise, the town is a only a 5 minute drive away with a few nice restaurants and more importantly a bakery! Loads of things to do in the surrounding areas, would definitely visit again! 5 stars from Mr & Mrs Kay

Coast/Beach:

There is a very good swimming lake with a sandy beach about 15 minutes’ drive from the house at Lanquais. It has a cafe, pedalos, children’s play area and an inflatable assault course with water slide. There are no dogs allowed at the lake.

The bay at Arcachon to the west past Bordeaux is approximately 2.5 hours’ drive.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Bergerac at a 25 minute drive away - Bordeaux is 1 hour 50 minutes. It is about a 6 hour drive from Caen harbour and about 6.5 hours from Le Havre. From the Chunnel is around 9 hours’ drive. Car hire is recommended.

Distances:

Beaumont du Perigord is 5 minutes away for shops, restaurants, evening entertainment and market.

The Dordogne River itself is 10 minutes away and it's 45 minutes from the heart of the region with the river, chateaux and activities.

Bergerac town is a 30 minute drive for shops, markets, river trips, vineyards and culture.

The popular town of Sarlat is 45 minutes’ drive, or you can catch the train from Lalinde which is a 10 minute drive away.

The beautiful Lot region is only 45 minutes.

Further Details:

The beautiful bastide town of Beaumont du Perigord has all the necessary amenities including a bank, the tourist office, 2 supermarkets, pharmacy, boulangerie and butchers.

Most of these are on the town square, where there is also a café (which just serves lunches), a pizzeria, a tabac and twice weekly market. There are several other restaurants and interesting shops dotted around the side streets.

The area is spoilt for good restaurants - we have listed some in the house information as there are too many to mention. The surrounding villages are always worth exploring and you will often find a great restaurant just by chance! You can usually find a town market every day of the week selling fantastic local food and wine - the biggest being on a Sunday morning at Issigeac.

The Dordogne river is a 10 minute drive away and the more tourist area with its chateaux and picturesque towns are all within a 45 minute drive. The best chateaux are Les Milandes, Beynac and Castlenaud. There are gorgeous gardens with a sculpture trail and kids acitivites at Marqueyssac as well as a 'via ferrata' (or rock climbing experience) for adults and children alike.

Monpazier is another must see - a stunning bastide town with a lovely square and relaxed atmosphere. Further south from Monpazier in Biron is a 'Parc en Ciel' or skypark which boasts a network of tree walks, zip wires and obstacle courses for all ages and abilities - fantastic fun!

Our advice is to look out for posters advertising local events - especially music night in Beaumont during the summer - it could be the best night of your holiday!
