PORCHERAT in Dordogne, a gite in Dordogne and Lot: PORCHERAT exterior

Restored farm cottage with large enclosed garden. Very cosy

No swimming pool - just a private 5 acre lake, complete with beach and island, to give you safe, warm bathing all summer long. Family sized rowing boat for fishing or just for pottering. Two other peaceful lakes of 1+ acres each stocked for fishing.

There are four farm-workers' cottages on the estate which have been carefully renovated to maintain many old features. A three-bedroomed and four-bedroomed cottage are within 100 metres of the lake: another four-bedroomed cottage along with the two-bedroomed cottage are to be found near our farmhouse, + km away through the woods. Each cottage has an enclosed, toddler-proof garden.

Our 250 acres of mixed woodland and grassland (we raise beef cattle and sheep) are available for you to explore; an activity made even more enjoyable by three miles of maintained footpaths.

Colourful local markets and excellent restaurants are within easy reach, as are the wonderful Bordeaux vineyards. We are always available for help, advice and information.

We have been welcoming guests since 1992, when we started off with just two cottages that we renovated in simple, friendly, comfortable fashion. We have since done up a further two of the farm cottages and so can offer a special environment where the 4 houses are separately situated on the farm allowing visitors to have very much their own space, but at the same time offering the chance to mix and socialize with other guests if they so wish. The children certainly seem to enjoy this, and where the children go the parents often follow.
Out of the main season of school holidays we have older, often retired guests who can enjoy the warmth and verdure of the spring months, walking , reading, fishing, doing the markets etc.
Fot the active, old and young, it is a great place for cycling. A mix of quiet rural roads and great forest tracks means cyclists of various levels of expertise can all find something to suit them. The "professionals" often bring their own bikes but for the occasional bikers, we will lend you bikes free of charge
