About the property
Restored with passion and skill of hand over many years, this wonderful country estate has the perfect blend of tradition combined with modern conveniences. Your stay is sure to be a delight as the owners have really excelled with attention to every detail, thus ensuring the perfect holiday for you.
Providing luxurious four-star accommodation, the Domain of La Perode comprises three detached buildings and a separate pool area, with around three quarters of the land given over to natural wildflower pasture. The old Maison-du-Pain (Bread Oven) has been specifically converted and extended with guests in mind, to provide five comfortable and modern bedrooms and all the emenities they could wish for. The remainder is unspoilt oak and mixed forest, housing much wildlife and serving the table with the occasional batch of mushrooms. The nearby gated swimming pool complex is heated and boasts a wonderful outdoor kitchen, games and showering facilities for the sole use of Bread Oven guests, so privacy is guaranteed. Wildlife abounds and the surrounding fields and woods providide a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers alike. As an escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life, we hope it will exceed all expectations.
During your stay you will enjoy exclusive use of the large gated 12m x 6m heated swimming pool with roman steps at one end to facilitate easy access. There is a pantiled abri (shelter) within this 250m² area that is fitted out with a summer kitchen (with hot and cold running water) to allow for the preparation and cooking of meals using a top-of-the-range Weber gas BBQ with side burner. The large modern fridge can be used for food storage and the chilling of those refreshing drinks, whilst the kitchen is fully equipped with cooking utensils and unbreakable serving ware.
This leisure area also sports table tennis and other games facilities and there are plenty of chairs and loungers for sun-worshipers alongside shady nooks for the more sensitive of skin. The hot shower, toilet and beautiful aspect may well result in most of your time being spent in this well-appointed area.
The nearby town of Rouffignac St Cernin de Reilhac is a five minute drive or a lovely 20 minute walk away and offers a good selection of amenities, including restaurants, shops and that all-important boulangerie.
A truly special place to enjoy that holiday you’ve been so looking forward to. Come and stay, make memories and relax.
We have years of lovely reviews on our website and here is a small selection:
“A lovely holiday for all the family. La Perode suited our needs perfectly. We especially enjoyed being able to base ourselves in the pool area for part of the day. I cannot think of anything that we needed that was not supplied. Many thanks to Alec and Annie.”
