Description from manager

Owner's description:

In a wonderfully rural area near the banks of a river, yet only a ten minute stroll into a charming medieval market town, the apartments at Les Ecuries are the perfect setting for an unforgettable holiday in the south of the beautiful Dordogne, just under half an hour from Bergerac.

In this intimate space surrounded by vast grounds, there are five beautifully renovated apartments.

One of the apartments has three elegant bedrooms, its own open-plan living space with Wi-Fi and a Sonos sound system plus a well-equipped kitchen, bright bathrooms and its own terrace and barbecue. Part of a converted barn, over two floors, this home features a wood-burning stove for cooler evenings plus air-conditioning in bedrooms for warmer days.

The owners have a keen eye for detail and have aimed to create the highest of standards such as Feather & Black beds, the best quality linen and dressing gowns for guests including the children. The level of service that guests receive will equally astound you from the morning delivery of croissants and fresh bread every day to the on-site concierge who can arrange a private chef, baby-sitting, in-room massage or simply reserve taxis and restaurants for you. 

The vast estate here stretches for 25 acres including delightful woodland walks and tranquil paths leading to the rivers edge where you can feast on picnics prepared by the chef or try out a spot of fishing. Enjoy the summer scents from the flower garden, pick herbs for your evening meal or simply find one of the benches or hammocks across the wonderful gardens to relax with a good book. Kids will be in their element with two play areas with slides, climbing frames and a great trampoline not to mention so many outdoor toys and a fantastic kids pool whilst grown-ups can enjoy some serious swimming in the 25m long swimming pool available for all the guests. Gather with newly found friends on the communal terrace overlooking the pool, prepare wonderful meals in the large barbecue or pizza oven and enjoy leisurely lunches or lingering evening feasts with fine wines under the clear skies at night.

Should you be able to tear yourself away from the glorious grounds, the bastide town of Eymet is just ten minutes walk away. Enjoy the bustling market on a Thursday morning or simply wander around the medieval streets, admiring the fascinating history whilst browsing into shops and sampling some of the fantastic restaurants, cafes and bars.

The south of the Dordogne offers a wealth of activities from cycling, hiking and canoeing nearby to tree-top adventure parks, farms, water parks and go-karting to keep the kids entertained. There’s a decent choice of golf courses nearby and wine-lovers will be able to explore the surrounding vineyards from nearby Château de Monbazillac to idyllic Saint-Émilion and beyond. Not forgetting the array of characterful villages and cities nearby such as beautiful Bergerac and impressive Bordeaux to the smaller and charming Issigeac and Monpazier. Explore local towns on market day for a true Dordogne experience! 

Whether a family holiday or a stay with friends, this is a unique place where you will feel most welcome and looked after in this stunning part of southern Dordogne.

In addition there are four 2-bedroom apartments (three of which are part of the converted barn) available for rental () or for larger groups the entire site can be hired exclusively ().

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill'otelYey! Wait… what is that?

It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel. What can be arranged?

Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the 'Extras' tab for all the details.

The location of Les Ecuries is wonderful for those looking for a rural holiday yet not have to depend on a car as you are just a ten minute walk from the charming market town of Eymet. The 25 acres of private grounds at Les Ecuries lead to the banks of the Dropt river.

In Eymet (1.3km) you will find some excellent restaurants and bars, a couple of supermarkets, a boulangerie and butchers as well as other interesting shops and a vibrant market in the beautiful main square on a Thursday. Being on the banks of the river there are some amazing views and great picnic spots.  The town dates back to the 13th century and is a typical bastide town in its layout, full of idyllic medieval houses and attractive buildings. The town hosts several cultural events and festivals throughout the year and is a vibrant as well as historical place to stay.

In terms of activities you will find canoeing within ten minutes by car, bike trails in the area (and electric bike hire and tours in Eymet!) several golf courses within twenty minutes and a picturesque lake with swimming, slides, barbecue facilities and a café just half an hour away. In and around Bergerac you will find a waterpark, go-karting, boat rides and a
