Two 4-bedroom restored charming Dordogne barns for rent

These two lovely adjoining self-catering holiday homes offered by UK owners are located in a converted barn in the heart of one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of southwest France - The Dordogne / Lot borders - making them the ideal base for a sightseeing holiday in the area.

Situated in a small hamlet, not far from the delightful villages of St Julien de Lampon, Masclat and Milhac and close to one of the most beautiful rivers in France, La Dordogne, the extremely charming barn has been converted to a very high standard into these two holiday homes. The decoration in fresh, pretty colours makes a most inviting holiday home full of light and sunshine. The attention to detail is superb and the dining kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need - it is quite a feature!

In the grounds of the property guests will be able to enjoy the sunny terrace decking for sunbathing and eating and drinking al fresco.

From the era of Prehistoric Man through the middle Ages and beyond the Dordogne and Lot area is a sightseer's paradise - steeped in history. The Dordogne region also formed the historic frontier between France and England during the Hundred Years War and this rich heritage offers a renowned variety of sights for you to discover on your sightseeing break in France.

The Perigord boasts numerous castles, churches and medieval bastides towns as well as beautiful stone villages and prehistoric caves, all set in some of France's loveliest countryside. The Dordogne and Lot rivers meander throughout undulating hills, forests and limestone cliffs with new discoveries around every corner.

Leisure and pleasure opportunities abound in this area including swimming, walking, cycling, canoeing, golf, hot air balloning, fishing, horse riding, rock climbing, waterparks, parascending, karting. There are also castles, craft markets, art galleries and ancient caves with paintings to visit.

When sightseeing in the Dordogne, highlights include the famous 13th century bastide (fortified) town of Domme; La Roque-Gageac, one of the many villages labeled as "L'un des Plus Beaux Villages de France" in the area; Rocamadour the second most visited site by sightseers in France with its spectacular cliff; Sarlat-la-Canéda probably the most famous town of Perigord almost unchanged since the Middle Ages and Renaissance; Château de Beynac, one of the best preserved of the 100 castles in the region; and Le Bugue-tuesday market.

Food and wine are at the heart of French culture and when in the Dordogne the best way to experience this is through colourful French markets and local restaurants. The Perigord is renowned for its Confit de canard (duck), its world-famous foie gras, truffles, goat's cheese and walnuts served in salads or in the delicious Gâteau aux Noix. Local red wines from Cahors and Bergerac, and the famous white Monbazillac are bound to find their way onto your table. From Haute-Cuisine and Michelin Star restaurants to simple and delicious Auberges serving local produce and specialties, the Dordogne / Lot region offers an unforgettable culinary experience.
