About the villa

With steps straight from the pavement to its imposing double doorway, the façade of this intriguing townhouse is traditional and rather grand. To the rear of the villa are beautiful grounds with box-hedged rose beds, woodlands and winding pathways. A lawned and cobbled central courtyard makes a private spot for al fresco dining, a heated swimming pool fills a sunny corner above the rose garden, and there are lovely views over the picturesque market town and surrounding countryside. And within the innately welcoming house, spacious rooms are individually designed for comfort and character. Bedroom décor ranges from rich and romantic, to cool and uncluttered.The kitchen has a country style breakfast area, a comfortably informal sitting room contrasts with a handsome dining room, and a very contemporary TV snug complements a games room with table tennis. Thoughtfully equipped as a family home, Maison Lemaitre is also very well placed for activities and amenities. A cinema, tennis courts, shops and restaurants are within a five minute walk as is the lively Friday market, and the region’s capital, historic Perigueux, is just 15km away.

About the area

The 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.
