Dordogne villa for rent — La Retraite is a delightful property, a former rectory standing beside the old church of Nadaillac de Rouge, where the bells still chime three times a day, although sadly not in July or August! Built of local stone in a typically Perigordian style, with flagstone floors, wooden beams and a large inglenook fireplace, La Retraite exudes comfort and relaxation whatever the time of year. A heated pool and air conditioning in two of the bedrooms adds that extra appeal. The tiny village boasts an auberge serving local cuisine, just a short walk from the villa, and you will find more restaurants as well as shops, supermarket, banks and post office in the local towns of Souillac, Peyrac and St Julien de Lampon.
La Retraite offers a welcome respite from the modern world. The villa has a very special, timeless quality about it. The dark night-time skies are just perfect for star-gazing, and with its rural, tranquil setting and proximity to a myriad of local attractions, this charming and welcoming Dordogne villa for rent is a real gem.
