About the Owner

We made the move to France 8 years ago with our son Jamie who was 9 years old at the time and have never looked back. When we lived in England we had our own retail business and found the life very stressful and found we didn't have time to spend with our son. So in 2006 we made the huge decision to make the move and sold our house and business. The life here is very slow paced and relaxed, the weather is much better than England, and when guests ask would we ever go back our answer is a definite no....

What a fantastic holiday! The property, location and facilities exceeded our expectations. Glenn and Roma were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable holiday. The archery and pool was fantastic and enjoyed by all the group. We enjoyed our holiday that much that have already booked to return next year!

Amazing farmhouse in Dordogne Countryside

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most amazing week in the Dordogne at La Chenaie. The property is even more beautiful than the pictures convey and it was the perfect relaxing retreat for our party of 4 adults and 5 children. Whilst set in the most tranquil countryside the house is close to a range of tourist attractions and supermarkets. The house is stylish and immaculate with wonderful hosts. The children loved the archery and games room/field and we all enjoyed the warm pool with both shade and sunshine to suit all. I would highly recommend this property and hope to return in the near future.

From the Owner

We found our perfect home near the small village of Sorges, Sorges is famous throughout France for it's Truffles, there is a bakers, co op, tabac shop, church and the famous restaurant the Auberge de la truffe. It is a tranquil place yet only 20 mins drive to the Medieval city of Perigueux, which is one of our favourite city's, the property is within easy access to all the attractions and about a 1 hour drive to the Dordogne river, yet offers you the peace and quiet to escape the hustle and bustle. There are 3 villages all within 4km from the property for the essentials and a 10 - 15 min drive to the large hypermarkets.

Special interest holidays:

The Dordogne region has been a popular holiday destination for many years, with budjet airlines flying daily making it more affordable. The area is famous for it's many Medieval towns and stunning Chateaux all within a short drive away from the property.

Through the summer months there are plenty of Fetes and festivals and colourful markets to explore and with the warm climate here it truly does make a difference.

The Dordogne area is one of the most popular destinations in France offering the holiday maker plenty of interesting things to do and see.


Don't forget to visit St Jean de Côle en route there or coming back, one of the beautiful villages of France.


Sorges is the closest village to the property ,famous for its Truffles , visit the museum and walks around the Truffle groves.The Auberge de la Truffe is famous for its gourmet food.

St Jean de Cole is a 20 minute drive away known as one of the beau villages of France.

Many historic caves are within easy driving distance.

Further Details:

Brantôme is known as as the Venice of the Dordogne, the River Dronne encircling the small town, linked to the outside world by five bridges. Excellent restaurants. Lovely market on Fridays and in the summer always painting exhibitions in the Abbey. A fun place for children, too, with canoe hire. Its gabled bell tower, rising from the rock, is held to be the oldest and one of the finest in France. The original Benedictine Abbey was founded in 769 by Charlemagne. The Abbey as it is today was rebuilt in the 18th Century and now houses a museum with prehistoric remains and a permanent exhibition of the mysterious trance paintings, engravings and drawings of the medium-cum-artist Fernand Desmoulin (1853-1914). In the summer it also shows the work of living artists, which are offered for sale.

Brantôme offers the family a lovely day out for there is something for everyone. You can explore the River Dronne in a hired canoe, or in a pedal-powered boat. There are numerous, cafés, bars and restaurants to suite all budgets, art galleries, arts and crafts shops, antique shops and a wonderful farmers' market every Tuesday and Friday in July and August. For budding artists some wonderful scenes to paint. It's not uncommon on lovely summer days to see people with their easels precariously placed along the river bank endeavouring to capture the moment.
