Give air travel a wide berth in 2020, and drive to the beautiful Dordogne instead. South-west France holiday rental specialist Simply Périgord continues to refine its portfolio of holiday homes across the Dordogne with the introduction of seven stunning properties for the forthcoming season. Among the new additions are: a beautifully-restored 17th century farmhouse within walking distance of the quaint village of Manaurie; a recently renovated Périgourdine-style property close to Le Coux; and a charming ensemble of cottages sleeping 12 in Savignac-de-Miremont.
Now with over 60 properties, from magnificent chateaux to bucolic farmhouses and romantic cottages, most with private pools and all affordable, the portfolio offers something for groups of all shapes and sizes. For those who can tear themselves away from their abode, there is plenty to see and do in the Dordogne, from discovering pretty villages, prehistoric caves, ancient castles and delicious regional cuisine to canoeing, golfing, hiking and cycling. What’s more, with Simply Périgord being based in the heart of the Dordogne in Le Bugue, the team is always ready to lend a hand, be it restaurant recommendations, wine tastings, babysitting or a range of chef services.

NEW FOR 2020

Au Calme des Bois A lovely ensemble consisting of three cottages, all of which have been recently renovated to offer modern interiors alongside original stonework and beams. The separate accommodation makes this an ideal choice for extended families who would like to holiday en masse whilst enjoying their own private space too. While the cottages are grouped closely together, each still benefits from its own independence with kitchen/sitting/dining areas, private access and terrace. United, the property sleeps up to 12 guests: cottage 1 sleeps two; cottage 2 sleeps four; and cottage 3 sleeps up to six guests. In common to all of the cottages is an entrance facing the gravelled courtyard (perfect for boules) and a rear with French doors opening out to overlook the shared swimming pool, grounds and views beyond. Located in the little village of Savignac-de-Miremont, Au Calme des Bois is just 8kms from Le Bugue for all amenities. Price: One week’s self-catering rental costs from €2,750 in high season.
