Maison de Piliers
This large very well presented, Perigordine-style four bedroom spacious holiday home is located in a very convenient position in the heart of the Dordogne, in the pretty little village of Calviac-en-Périgord where you will find the village shop selling fresh bread daily and groceries. The property benefits from sunny terraces in the large garden with magnificent views of the Chateaux Fenelon on the hillside beyond. Although there is no swimming pool, a large spa hot tub with guaranteed privacy may tempt you! The Dordogne river can be reached by a short walk (1 km) 5 minutes through glorious countryside. The larger village of Rouffillac is just over 2 km where canoes can be hired to safely explore the Dordogne river or just in a riverside bar and watch the world go by! Here you will also find a few good restaurants.

If cycling is your thing, this is the ideal location for you and your family. The Sarlat-Souillac greenway can be accessed in 2 minutes easily from the house and provides 35km of traffic-free scenic cycling, ideal for adults and children alike. There has also been a recent extension that turns off the main route and continues to Gourdon, passing the scenic lake at Grolejac. For an alternative swimming experience, in addition to the clear, clean and safe waters of the Dordogne river, the Plan d'Eau at Grolejac is a lovely lake where you can swim and hire pedalos. This is a 10 minute drive or, for the more energetic, you can cycle from the house using the greenway along the Dordogne. You also have the Etang de Tamniès just north-west of Sarlat-la-Canéda. For the golfers, there is an 18-hole course at Souillac Country Club and a 9-hole course at Domaine de Rochebois at Vitrac. For those who enjoy fishing on holiday, again the Dordogne river is right on your doorstep, and for the carp fisher a little further afield is the 5-star Golden Carp Lake at Vieux-Mareuil. There is plenty to keep the children occupied as well as for all the family, just ask us and we'll give you more information on activities.

The magnificent châteaux at Castelnaud-la-Chapelle (25 km) and Beynac-et-Cazenac (22 km) are definitely worth a visit. They are also visible from the river. Sarlat-la-Canéda (11 km), 'Pearl of the Périgord,' is a real tourist attraction. Stroll along the many tiny streets with timbered houses and charming courtyards. Here you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants catering for all tastes. This region is also famous for its prehistoric relics. You can visit old cave dwellings that belonged to the Cro-Magnons in La Roque Saint Christophe (40 km).

At the end of each rental we ask our clients for comments on their stay - we hope that the following comments will help making your choice of property easier

  • We have had a great holiday! The holiday home was very clean and equipped with a lot of comfort. It was well located. The welcome gifts were very thoughtful. Patricia S (July 2022)
  • The house was spotless and beautifully equipped with everything you need and the AC was particularly welcome. All the appliances, crockery, towels & bedding were of excellent quality and clearly showed it was a home and not just a holiday let. We loved the walled in area with hot tub, sitting and dining areas, great for our little dog to safely wander...cont'd (June 2022)
  • ...The area itself is beautiful and having Sarlat so close was very nice too. I would absolutely go back again, in fact I could actually live in this house. French Gite Holidays were a pleasure to deal with, very helpful and friendly. Thanks again for everything! Diane B (June 2022)
  • Nous avons passé un excellent séjour avec de très bonnes prestations. Merci! Adeline G (August 2021)
  • A spacious house in beautiful surroundings. It was immaculate, clean and extremely well equipped. A nice welcome was waiting, we found wine, milk and cheese in the fridge and some baguettes. We very much enjoyed our stay, we will certainly recommend this comfortable lovely house to family and friends. A very nice place to visit would be Sarlat with lots of cafes and restaurants and a trip along the river Dordogne would be recommendable. Jennifer O (2 August 2021)
  • Notre séjour à la maison des piliers s'est merveilleusement bien passé. Cette maison est très bien conçue. Encore merci. Steve L (August 2020)
