Welcome to Ferme du Bournet – a beautiful holiday cottage in the Dordogne Valley – fabulous rural setting, large private pool, free WiFi and great access to many local attractions. 


This beautiful holiday cottage in the Dordogne Valley started life as a stone barn and stables. Built from the pale limestone that gives this area its distinctive look, the cottage has been lovingly converted to combine modern conveniences with original features. It offers a spacious and comfortable “home from home” furnished with your comfort in mind. Standing on top of a hill, surrounded by beautiful countryside but only a short distance from bustling market towns, famous castles, restaurants and local festivals – it’s the perfect location; whether you prefer lounging by the pool enjoying the peace and quiet or exploring the attractions – there’s something for everyone.

The property offers –

  • FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN  with full-size oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, coffee maker and a full range of kitchen equipment.
  • LARGE LIVING & DINING AREA; well furnished with comfortable sofas, a flat-screen TV (with English channels), DVD player, books, board games and CD player. Two sets of patio doors open onto the large, mature garden and pool.
  • THREE SPACIOUS BEDROOMS – one double and two twins, all with plenty of wardrobe space and floor standing pedestal fans.
  • MODERN BATHROOM with a full-sized bath, separate shower cubicle, sink and toilet.
  • PRIVATE TERRACE with large GAS BBQ, table, chairs, and parasol.
  • UNUSUALLY LARGE PRIVATE POOL – alarmed and fenced, the south-facing pool is well equipped with sun-loungers and parasols. The pool is for your exclusive use and is not shared with anyone.

We are so lucky with the weather. Spring starts early – April, May, and June are great months to visit if you want to do some exploring. The weather is normally kind; sunny but not too hot, and you beat the crowds. These are the best months for cycling and walking trips. During July and August, laze by the pool during the long, hot afternoons and save your exploring for the mornings or evenings.

The area really comes to life during the summer, and the calendar is full of events, markets, festivals and displays. All of the local villages host a festival, the towns of Souillac and Cahors have jazz and blues festivals and If you prefer the classics; St Cere has a great Classical music festival with events in some stunning locations.

Feeling more active? You can’t beat drifting down the River in a canoe or exploring one of the many well-marked walking routes. For the children, there are theme and adventure parks and for the adults – perhaps a vineyard tour?

September and October see the end of the scorching weather but the area is still alive with things to do and see. The children are back to school so the towns and villages are much quieter and the weather is usually still warm. This is the perfect time for exploring Sarlat, Rocamadour, and the many beautiful villages. Maybe wander around one of the traditional markets, or linger over a long lunch in a local restaurant.

We live discreetly in the original farmhouse and are always available to provide you with any assistance you might require. We do have pet dogs and cats which we discourage from mixing with the guests. They are sociable, friendly and happy to say hello to you if you do see them but we do not allow them to bother anyone.
