La maison est située sur le dessus de 0. 5 hectares de non vis à vis, jardin privé, à la fin d'une voie unique, utilisé presque exclusivement par des clients (et le facteur). Le jardin offre une vue imprenable sur la vallée et Le Falgueyret plus large dans toute la région du Périgord. Le jardin contient des dizaines de chênes, de pins matures et des arbres fruitiers, (pomme, prune, poire, figue, noix et noisettes). S'il vous plaît utiliser les fruits / noix dans le jardin pendant votre séjour! La maison a été restaurée avec une vision exceptionnelle des artistes de Bordeaux en fonction dans les années 1960. Au cours des 2 dernières années, la maison a été entièrement modernisé en respectant les caractéristiques d'origine, (par exemple, toutes les chambres disposent poutres apparentes), pour donner un caractère architectural unique et la sensation combinée avec des caractéristiques traditionnelles (par exemple, four à pain).

We spent a wonderful fortnight at Le Falgueyret in August. The house was extremely well equipped, very comfortable and coped very well with 2 families. The heated pool was a real bonus and was well used when we weren't visiting local markets, canoeing and sightseeing.
Pascale met us when we arrived and was always available if we had a query or wanted some local knowledge - she was lovely.
The house enjoys wonderful views across to the local hamlet and sits on a large plot with plenty of space for children to play. We loved having different eating areas - we had breakfast at the front of the house and barbecued and ate in the back garden chasing the last of evening sun.
Thank you David and Dominique,
The house is wonderful. We had the most fantastic holiday in the heart of Perigord, and such easy access to great places, and our relaxing days by the pool were just brilliant.
The house has everything, plenty of space for two families and so relaxing. Two weeks wasn't enough!!
The location is excellent. Only 10 minutes to Limeuil and 30 minutes or so to the Les Eyzies valley and Bergerac. Domaine du Cantonnet in Meyrals is well worth a visit for a wine tasting. The amount of caves and places to go is so good, we packed so much in, and if you like canoeing try the Vezere river as an alternative to the Dordogne.
We have travelled a lot in France and this is such a great house and location we will definitely look to return.
All we could ask for and more...
As the title suggests, this house exceeded our expectations in many ways. As a family of five, with a very hectic lifestyle we were in desperately need in a peaceful, relaxing holiday with all the necessary amenities for a young family in a beautiful area. That is exactly what we got, along with lots of added extras.
After a very lengthy (17 hour) journey. We were greeted by the lovely, Pascale who was very welcoming and showed us around the farmhouse pointing out everything we needed to know. Pascale then left us to enjoy our holiday and we spoke again a couple of days before departure. We have previously known house keepers to be a little intrusive so this was great to be left to just enjoy our holiday.
The house is completely isolated and incredibly private with the exception of a couple of dog walkers you might see now and again. The grounds are well maintained and as beautiful as all of the pictures show. In fact the view from the pool is quite spectacular. The house is full of character and with all of David and Dominique's home comforts, you feel right at home.
We travelled to Le Falgueyret at the beginning of July 2016 and were blessed with great weather. This allowed us all to relax and spend quality family time together around the well equipped pool. There is a small pool house which houses some technical looking pool equipment along with a toilet, sink and fridge freezer. Perfect for two young children who quite often had to jump out the pool to use the loo! And of course we kept some drinks and ice lollies in there for cooling down in the heat.
As well as enjoying the pool, my husband utilised the mens bike and toddler seat and cycled to Ste-Alvere on several occasions for fresh pastries and breads. As I understand it he visited the Bar-Tabac whilst there so I'm not sure if there was an ulterior motive.
Our children are aged four, two and six months and so we were a little limited with activities. We visited Perigeux and had a train ride around the city and also went to Bergerac where we visited the market and found a boating lake for the children. This also had a bouncy castle and small cafe to enjoy afterwards.
The highlights of our holiday had to be the night markets which we all thoroughly enjoyed and are an absolute must for anyone visiting. We also visited a local restaurant called Juliens in Paunat - Amazing food!
This was the perfect place to reconnect as a family... somewhere we very much hope to visit again!
Private getaway in beautiful setting
Lovely property in a beautiful region. Modern amenities (new kitchen, pool, nespresso, A/C, weber bbq's etc.) while preserving historic character of the farm. The (heated) pool has views across the valley and the layout of the property makes it ideal for (two) families. Both owner as well as caretaker were very responsive and helpful. Perfect recipe for a lovely vacation - could not recommend more.
Thanks for the feedback and taking the time to write the review. We are glad you had a good holiday.

beautiful surroundings, lovely house
We had the most pleasant stay in this beautiful house. The garden is just amazing, offering lots of quiet hiding places and a large heated (!) pool with a gorgeous view.
Really glad that you enjoyed your holiday. Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback.

perfect hideaway to spend an undisturbed holiday
We did spend a wonderful time with family and friends as a party of five and also three dogs. As the location is quite remote, you can enjoy absolute privacy but on the other hand, all necessary supply is in close range - if you do not fear a 45 minute walk you can reach the weekly market of the next village even by foot hiking through a light forest. The interior is perfect for a relaxing holiday and especially the full equipped kitchen (necessary in France's home of fine food) does provide the setup for all kinds of food. The absolute highlight came by accident - the airflow regulation of the Weber(r)-BBQ was out of function and we as BBQ-enthusiasts had to find a way to deal with this. After assessing the options, we started to reanimate the old baking house with an outstanding result. We even tried to make our own dough, but it did not work out, so we started to purchase dough from the local bakery and since then we had the best pizzas, focaccia with herbs and dried tomatos, olives and so on. In this oven/house we gratinated oysters, baked scallops, prepared fish, lobsters, duck-breasts and the great cote de boeuf. Everything came out perfect. The soar point is that I gained five kilos of weight in the three weeks holiday, but I do not regret any single bit. Unfortunately we did not manage to get a wild boar from the only farm close by as it would have been too much to get a whole one for only five people. If you are more, try this! Besides the cooking fun, the care taken by the nice couple responsible for the background organisation was overwhelming. The location itself is a mixture between decent luxury and paradise, a great pool area where you can chose between party, wellness and fun. The interior is a very interesting solution of combining the sections of an ancient farmhouse and it was done with great success. We just tried to find a negative point to give advise to the other guests, but we did not find one. So, it just remains to wish all of the following guests: enjoy your holidays, the setup is given...
Thanks for taking the time to write the review. We are really glad you enjoyed the house and local cuisine.
We will look into the BBQ problem - I suspect we aren't as controlled as you with the cooking. We are going to follow your lead and try the bread oven / four a pain...
