About the property

Farmhouse in Déjalat, near Sainte Sabine, Beaumont Du Perigord, Dordogne, France - Within easy reach of the Bastide towns of Villeréal, Monpazier and Beaumont .

The farmhouse has been modernised to a high standard to make it comfortable for guests whilst maintaining its original character. It sits adjacent to the owners' main house, a converted barn. It benefits from a modern fitted kitchen, log burner, satellite TV, DVD and Wi-Fi. Both bathrooms have baths, heated towel rails and the one downstairs has a thermostatically controlled shower. There is private parking for 2 cars in front of the cottage. Guests have their own private garden behind the cottage with sun loungers, a BBQ plus everything needed for alfresco dining. Included is the use of the owners’ pool which has lovely views and a large terrace with sun beds and umbrellas. The cottage benefits from facing east to make the most of the morning and evening sun, while keeping it cool through the day. The farmhouse is the perfect starting point for walks or cycle trips through the quiet local lanes to nearby medieval villages. Sainte-Sabine, only a few minutes away by car, has a bakery, post-office and several restaurants, including La Gentilhommière which boasts a Michelin star. The cottage is ideally situated for those wanting to enjoy the beauty of the French countryside while being within driving distance of the Dordogne and Vézère valleys, where you can see everything from splendid chateaux to the world-famous cave paintings at Lascaux. For the more energetic, there is kayaking on the Dordogne which we can highly recommend! The wine tours of Bergerac and the town itself (30 minutes away) are well worth a visit as are the local Bastide villages with their shops, restaurants, bars and wonderful weekly markets and summer food festivals.

Bordeaux and Toulouse are both within a 2 hour car journey.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've been coming to this part of France for a few years now and can safely say that this has been the best gite of all. Georgeous scenery all around the house, constantly changing as the farmers mowed, gathered, stacked etc. Just beautiful.

We spent a wonderful week with Tanya, Tim and family. On arrival we found a fridge and cupboard full of essentials and treats which was a lovely welcome. The house itself is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and supplied with everything you would ever need. Days were filled either visiting villages, in the pool or reading in one of the many garden areas. We had a wonderful time here and would definitely recommend it to others. Tanya also takes yoga sessions which was an added bonus to the holiday.

Amazing property for location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay here in August 2017. Whilst we had researched our holiday well, the pictures really don’t do this gite justice. It is extremely well furnished with everything you would expect from luxury accommodation. The gardens are something else and the pool is huge!

The views from all aspects of the gite and gardens are stunning! We had lazy days by the pool with barbecues most evenings and enjoyed the company of Oscar the dog and Rocky the cat most evenings!

We travelled as a family of 4, our children were 14 and 8 and Tanya and Tim really made us feel like part of the family......nothing was too much trouble and our 8 year old daughter became firm friends with their daughter Sophie.

Dejalat is about 8 K from the nearest town Villereal and we enjoyed some really nice meals out here and there is a good supermarket there too.

Days out included crazy golf at Fantasia and a terrifying afternoon at a Go Ape style adventure park. Monpazier (a French bastide town) was also very pretty.

Our highlight in the evenings was sitting in the gallery area with the candles lit playing card games whilst enjoying a glass of wine or 2!

We had a most relaxing 2 weeks here with beautiful weather in lovely surroundings and I won’t deny that I shed a tear when we left.

Thinking back on it, it now feels like the most wonderful dream and a whole world away.

We would definitely recommend Dejalat to anyone considering a holiday in this part of France as it has something for everyone whether your 8 or 80!

We would definitely like to return here one day, so a big thank you to The Smith family for making this a holiday to remember!

Relaxing home from home

  • 5 of 5

This has been possibly our best family holiday ever - it delivered just what we (a couple plus two young children) needed and more. Thank you to Tanya and Tim for creating such a welcoming home in a relaxing setting.

It was greatly appreciated to have a stocked fridge when we arrived, and all the little touches in the house that make it a real home from home.

We have greatly enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of Déjalat, the beautiful views from every vantage, the covered outside space close to the house for evening meals with the children sleeping close by, the swimming pool, the many garden areas, the spotless and well-equipped house, the privacy you have given us and the help when we needed it. Thank you again for a fabulous fortnight - we would love to return.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

We were made really welcome - a proper home from home. Breakfast there for the next day when we arrived. Towels supplied for the pool as well as in the house. The pool was welcoming on hot days; the gallery for when you needed shade; plenty of space to play outside. Nothing was too much trouble - Tim, Tanya and family were very helpful especially when making bookings either for a restaurant or activity. This place is a definite recommendation.

Relaxing holiday in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as Dejelat in August for two weeks and had a wonderful relaxing holiday, this is just what we had needed. Tim and Tanya were welcoming and friendly. The location is beautiful and peaceful and the swimming pool is a very good size, as a swimmer this was fantastic as I could swim lengths. There is garden ground on both sides of the property so there is always somewhere to sit in the sun or shade and it also feels very private. We loved the gallery for an early morning coffee and in the evening playing card games with the children. The cottage is well equipped, clean and tidy. We would love to return.

Beautiful holiday cottage with fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

"We have had a wonderful two weeks staying at this beautiful house. We loved the fantastic swimming pool, beautiful gardens and so many various seating areas to suit temperature and time of day. Inside is also lovely with lots of welcoming and useful touches as well as being comfortable and very attractive. Tanya, Tim and family, plus pets, were so friendly, polite and helpful and everything was easy and relaxing. We loved the beautiful bastide towns and found plenty of things to do and places to visit.

We would have no hesitation to recommend this cottage - one of the best we have stayed in"
