This chic one bedroom studio started life as part of a 17th Century Perigordine farm and was first converted into an Auberge in the early 1990's. In the perfect location, situated close to Eymet and Bergerac it is a fantastic place for a holiday. The location is perfect for exploring the Dordogne region being close to the bustling market towns of Eymet and Issigeac.
The Dordogne is the land of 1000 chateaux with endless fabulous places to visit or perhaps go for an exciting canoe trip down the river Dordogne. You will love the night markets which become a hive of activity with plenty of local produce to try and live music to enjoy.
This lovely studio has all that you could need for your holiday with a well equipped kitchen, large sofa and dining area. If you want to start your day with breakfast outside, there is a terrace and dining area for you to enjoy.
A short walk through the grounds takes you to a large shared swimming pool. If you are feeling more active then why not enjoy a game of boules, badminton or table tennis in the extensive gardens. There is also a private fishing lake within the grounds where you can catch Carp and Tench. This really is an ideal place for a couple to enjoy.
The owners purchased La Petite Auberge in June 2016 to start a new life in France. It had always been their dream and they are passionate about making you feel extra special during your stay. Whilst all the gites are self-catering, Paul has been classically trained in some of the top London restaurants and, as such, can offer guests meals for special occasions at an agreed set price. There is a minimum 3 nights stay for winter bookings and a minimum of 5 nights stay for summer bookings.
Do come and explore a truly wonderful part of the Dordogne. A fantastic holiday awaits....
"We have just returned from a week here and have to say how really nice it was very relaxing excellent accommodation, lovely and clean with everything you need lovely patio area with bbq which we used most days Lisa and Paul were fantastic hosts nothing was too much trouble. They were so welcoming and helpful and both work very hard met some lovely people there and were invited to a local BBQ which paul and lisa organised it was a lovely evening we will definitely return next year I can highly recommend it for a relaxing holiday."
"We have just returned from a week in L'Ancienne Porcherie. This is the smallest of the gites on site but was ideal for us. Our first impressions were how clean everything was. Having seen our hosts working tirelessly to prepare other gites for occupancy that was no surprise. It was an excellent base for exploring the region and returning from our various sorties to a welcome dip in the pool was just the ticket. As for value for money it was excellent and they could always be contacted for advice if needed. We would certainly recommend this as a very chilling retreat from the rat race."
