Les Vignes is a rambling 18th century Maison Bourgeoise in Abjat-sur-Bandiat, a village in the heart of the wonderful Limousin-Perigord National Park. The paradox of the Perigord-Vert is its sublime anonymity that is largely undiscovered, even by the French. Conversely, the Dordogne has a reputation for having summer crowds. North of Perigeux and South of Limoges, Abjat is an area with lush farmland and working villages, it has green hills and valleys sprinkled with medieval townships.

This lovely spacious, 6 bedroomed property is ideal for family holidays, or an adults' only retreat. With a sunny terrace and pool area, and being located in the heart of the village, it is peaceful and relaxing whilst offering a peek into Dordogne village life. The house is well equipped and homely. Local markets are some of the best, and there's a variety of activities in the area, for those who don't just want to lounge by the pool. The village is in the heart of The Perigord National Park, which gives access to gorgeous woodland walks and bike rides (bike hire available locally), great for wildlife and nature, all starting from the centre, not to mention the great lake swimming just outside of the village, with supervised 'beaches', canoe and pedalo hire and many snack bars. The village has a boulangerie, a bar/restaurant and other amenities, plus it has a very friendly community.

You can fill every day, but of course you are not compelled to go anywhere once you have enjoyed croissant and coffee on the terrace. Simply stay at home, perhaps by the pool, a cool glass of wine on hand and the BBQ ready for use! With 6 rooms, sleeping 12 people, Les Vignes is ideal for families, family ‘get-togethers’ or sharing with friends. The rooms are tastefully decorated and all have a dedicated bath or shower room. Rental includes the cost of utilities, towels and bedding.


"A truly delightful house, beautifully furnished, spacious and very well equipped and with lots of character. Definitely the most comfortable Gite we have rented. ... The pool is safely fenced off, and a real bonus on hot days. You are right in the centre of the pretty village ... The surrounding area is very pretty; there are some nice walks. ... Phil, the owner of Les Vignes, could not do enough, both before and during our holiday, to make our stay a success. His local agent, Helen, was also very welcoming and helpful, and all in all we felt very well looked after."

“We had an absolutely fabulous week staying in Les Vignes. Weather was perfect and the pool was just what we needed. Brantome is a 'must visit’, as was the market in Piegut-Pluviers. Saint Saud has a lovely swimming lake where we took a picnic and had a walk. We would definitely be returning as we had such an amazing week.”

“First of all, the house is magnificent. I think all of our jaws dropped as we were given the initial tour of the house. There were 12 of us staying during our visit and it never felt like we were overcrowded. Abjat-sur-Bandiat is a very quaint little village full of character and nice for little walks. We enjoyed the canoeing experience at Brantome and it is also a very picturesque little town. Finally, thank you very much for providing our family with a perfect location and we would love to return again.”
