About the villa

A tree lined avenue is the approach to the enchanting Domaine de Bagatelle, leading to a formal courtyard, flanked by the buildings of this secluded hilltop house. Beautifully restored in a blend of country romance and contemporary chic, the villa comprises a 18th century Maison de Maitre (Main house) and a 19th century hunting lodge (Pavilion). With exposed stone, soft white décor and elegant furnishings, each has four bedrooms, in a family-friendly mix of twin, double and bunk beds; six of the eight complete with en suite facilities, the remaining two rooms sharing a bathroom and the privacy of their own wing. 
While the lodge has an attractive sitting room and dining kitchen, the main house has ample social space for the group, with a stylish breakfast kitchen, dining room, drawing room and snug. Modern amenities include WiFi, large screen satellite TV’s, and Bluetooth stereo with outdoor speakers. And the villa is surrounded by the tranquil acres of its private estate, with lawns and walled gardens, a heated swimming pool, boules, table tennis, an arboretum and two small lakes. Along with riverside restaurants in nearby Brantome, chateaux and vineyards are within easy reach.

About the area

Dordogne

Average weather

Dordogne villa holidays draw gastronomes, nature lovers, and history buffs to France’s south-west. Food markets in Sarlat’s quaint streets are piled high with foie-gras, prunes, and truffles. Cave-paintings in Lascaux II bear witness to 400,000 years of human habitation. And Medieval châteaux, strung like pearls along the Dordogne and Dronne rivers, recall periods of Anglo-French rivalry—especially the Hundred Years’ War. If you are into wines, head to Bergerac and Cahors to sample their full-bodied reds.
