Property description

Self catering accommodation near Bergerac in the Dordogne.

Two stunning Properties - Starling Lodge & Oak Lodge. Each property comes with its own private enclosed pool.

Starling Lodge - 18th Century charming farmhouse with a modern twist. Can accommodate upto 18 persons comfortably with a large veranda for alfresco dining.

Oak Lodge, a stunning 17th century barn which has been renovated to the highest standards throughout. The bespoke kitchen is equipped with all mod cons including oak fitted units and granite work tops. The kitchen leads onto a grande lounge with a galleried landing and views over the garden.

These magnificent properties are set in 15 acres of peaceful countryside.The perfect location for a large family/friend gathering. Beautiful landscaped gardens with plenty of shady areas to avoid the miday sun. Weekend and short breaks available out of season

Local activities: FISHING
You may buy a fishing licence in the local stationers that will give you 15 days permission to fish anywhere on the River Dordogne. The cost of this is just 30 Euros and there are many beautiful spots to choose from where you may take the family for a picnic while you are busy catching the bar-b-Que for your evening meal!
The area boasts many different breeds of birds and several of our enthusiastic guests have returned from trips very excited at having spotted unusual species that are not widely found in UK.
Trips of varying times are available to see the area from the air. There are several pick up points and prices are inexpensive. Why not take a birds eye look at your holiday venue? A very different way to see the beautiful countryside around.


On the edge of Le Fleix is the quayside where you may hire kayaks and canoes. You have the choice of a 1, 2 or 6 hour trip on the river and the company who hire out the canoes will take you, with your canoe, life jacket and picnic if you have one, up the river to your starting point. They see you safely off and drive back to their base where you have left your car. You make your way down the river, dropping the canoe off and picking up your car at the end of your trip. This is a really fun day for all the family.


5 minutes drive will take you to Fougerolles where there is a private airfield from which you may book a gliding trip or even lessons for the more adventurous. Once again, this is inexpensive and prices depend on your choice of trip or lesson.


The Gurson lake is found on an 18 ha domain and features two large lakes (one for fishing) aquatique toboggans, pedalos, mini-golf, horse rides, tennis, kids games and a picnic area. Located at Carsac de Gurson.
Ideal day our for all of the family

Car: Recommended

Le Fleix village is just over 1km and has a small supermarket, post office, petrol station, 2 bakers, butcher, bar/restaurant and 2 hair dressers. It's a pleasant walk or you may borrow one of our bicycles if you are feeling not quite so energetic. Ste Foy La Grande, a charming old bastide town set on the River Dordogne with delightful town centre, is 7km and has a superb Saturday market, larger supermarkets and a multitude of other shops and restaurants. Bergerac is 17 kms and is also an old bastide town set on the river Dordogne and also with a picturesque town centre surrounded by restaurants. There are many shops, boutiques and supermarkets here too. The airport is just outside the town and is less than 20 minutes from our house. GOLF 15 minutes drive from Le Fleix is the superb golf course of Les Vigiers. This is an 18 hole course and is testing enough to satisfy regular golfers but not too tough for the lesser player. Green fees are very reasonable.

Other Activities: hot air ballooning, Canoeing

Golf: 15 minutes drive from Le Fleix is the superb golf course of Les Vigiers. This is an 18 hole course and is testing enough to satisfy regular golfers but not too tough for the lesser player. Green fees are very reasonable and you may hire clubs and buggy.

Les Vigiers also has a swimming pool, a bistro-style restaurant and the more expensive restaurant for a special night out in the chateau. There is also a health spa and fitness salon so that the ladies can enjoy pampering themselves whilst their menfolk fight it out on the course.
