Le Vieux Four in Dordogne, a cottage in Dordogne and Lot: Le Vieux Four exterior

Le Vieux Four is a renovated stone barn situated in a quiet hamlet.

Le Vieux Four is one of the three stone cottages that together make La Vieille Ferme. La Vieille Ferme is a perfect place to relax and unwind. Located in the famous golden triangle of Sarlat, Les Eyzies and Montignac, these three delightful stone cottages (locally referred to as gîtes) nestle together in the heart of the beautiful, unspoilt region of the Dordogne known as the Périgord Noir. The cottages are built around a charming courtyard with a covered terrace housing the old village bread oven (le vieux four).

Outside, there is a mature secluded garden offering a variety of places to sit either in sun or shade and take in the views. Each cottage has its own private garden terrace where meals can be enjoyed al-fresco. For our younger guests there is a communal indoor games room with table football, darts and a junior snooker/pool table. There is also a table tennis table and a selection of garden games such as badminton and boules for our more energetic guests. The English owners live on the opposite side of this country lane and are on hand to offer advice and help when necessary. Visitors are free to wander in the owners’ five acres of wooded grounds where they can meet (and feed!) the pet goats and chickens.

The spacious dining and living area of Le Vieux Four is open plan and light and airy. The comfortable lounge offers ample seating, a wood burning stove,TV (English and French free view channels) and a dvd player. The entrance door and two windows overlook the courtyard and French doors open on to the terraced seating area with views over the valley. There is also a door overlooking the natural pond.

Please note that the stairs that lead from this area to the upstairs bedrooms are open tread.

Le Vieux Four has a double bedroom on the ground floor and one double and a twin on the second floor. It has a spacious bathroom on the ground floor with a walk in shower, bath and sink unit. There are two separate WCs, one upstairs and one down.

The private terrace has views over the valley and the enclosed natural spring pond, an ideal spot to watch the comings and goings of numerous birds, butterflies and dragonflies that also inhabit this calm relaxing venue.

There is ample parking. Each cottage has its own allotted parking space for at least one car and there is extra parking space available if needed.

For those in search of outdoor pursuits bicycle hire, horse riding, and canoeing are all within easy reach. Along with the numerous local markets and many opportunities to taste the local specialities of foie gras, truffles and all things walnut (walnut cake, aperitif or just chocolate covered), La Vieille Ferme offers something for all ages and tastes.
he owners live opposite the property and are always happy to help and advise.
