Linda purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Linda chose Sarlat-la-Canéda
Location, location, location!!! All my guests agree we are in the center of paradise. Privacy, peace, and quiet!! Away from it all, but with everything close by. You have a gorgeous villa to relax and enjoy, but within 5 to 20 minutes you can see so many fascinating and historical sites in the Perigord Noir. There is so much to see and do in our area, that you could stay for a month and not see it all. There are beautiful village's and chateaux's to explore; the Dordogne and Vezere rivers offering fishing and canoeing; as well as superb restaurants and shops. There are numerous vineyards of Bergerac for wine enthusiasts and there is a different local market situated in a nearby village or town for every day of the week. This is a wonderful home to enjoy and relax in, has all the amenities you could want, and close to everything. We hope to see you soon!!

To stay at Mulberry Tree Villa was a pleasure from start to finish.
Linda and George are perfect hosts, making you feel welcome and special. The villa is exceptional both in cleanliness and comfort. It is a treat to stay in such an old building.
The chickens are an added bonus, feeding them daily was enjoyed by all.
I have to mention the swimming pool and the hot tub both 10 out of 10 for relaxing whilst surrounded by beautiful countryside.
We did use the services of the very professional and kind chef, Dimitri, as recommended by Linda and previous reviews. We are all strict Vegetarians and the menu he served was so thoughtful and extremely tasty. It is a very special treat that I wouldn’t hesitate to book again and again.
We usually spend our holidays touring the area and really don’t spend much time at the rental. However, this holiday we couldn’t get enough of the place and spent our days mostly relaxing at ‘home’.
Thank you and see you again soon!
It's Just Perfect!!!
Our family enjoyed a beautiful week of making memories at the Mulberry Tree Villa. What can be said that hasn’t already been written in the numerous other reviews, its just perfect.
Lets begin, its absolutely meticulously clean, its very comfortable and big. There is plenty of space inside and out, we were a family of 8. Plenty of bathrooms (4, which is amazing in France), 2 living rooms (giving the adults and children their own space), a kitchen with every utensil needed to prepare any meal (especially the meal prepared by chef Dimitri for a family of Gourmands). All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable for a peaceful evening sleep, robes, towels, makeup remover, shampoo, etc… are all provided. Outside there is plenty of room for the family to enjoy, there are swings and benches, in the sun or shady part of the beautiful tranquil garden, to relax and enjoy your afternoon. The children loved the heated pool and the adults enjoyed the evening stars in the Jacuzzi.
Best of all, this beautiful home is minutes from everything we wanted to do, see and needed. Supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants are all just minutes drive from Carmensac. All the beautiful villages, castles and chateaus (Château de Marqueyssac, Font de Gaume caves, Sarlat, Beynac, Château de Castelnaud, etc…), were never more than 5 minutes - 30 minutes’ drive. There is so much to see in this amazing region of the Dordogne that we can’t wait to return (hopefully again next year!).
I can’t finish the review without mentioning the amazing hosts Linda and George, they have mastered the art of hospitality. Their wealth of information and local knowledge was very much appreciated, driving directions, special parking places, restaurant recommendations, and just all around great advice and suggestions. Their genuine warmth and love for what they do really is special.
“5 Star Holiday in the Dordogne!!”
I had never seen a property with so many 5 star reviews but now, having been there myself I can understand it! The property is absolutely lovely and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a great base in the Dordogne.
The beautiful Mulberry Tree Villa is a large well equipped home that can easily accommodate extended families, with fabulous outside areas for the adults and children, and a wonderful heated pool that we all enjoyed.
Our children did not want to leave the house, but if you want a day out,
I would recommend speaking to Linda and George, for the best towns and villages to visit as they have a wealth of local knowledge and are always happy to help.
The house is spacious, comfortable, elegant and we all loved it! We did some serious cooking there, for 9, and the kitchen was furnished and equipped to the highest standards with everything you could possibly need.
We arrived at the house and were 'blown away' by it's beauty, both inside and out. So much thought has gone into the property, with so many beautiful touches making this very much a 5 star holiday.
A Most Memorable Vacation!
The entire experience in the Dordogne was exactly what we had dreamed of when we imagined vacationing in the French countryside. We had envisioned finding a lovely, old farmhouse surrounded by fields and rolling green hills but still having modern amenities. The Mulberry Tree Villa not only met these expectations, it far surpassed what we had hoped for. We all felt that this was our best vacation ever! The house itself was absolutely perfect for our two families. We were 4 adults and 4 kids ages 3 to 6. We had plenty of space and the sleeping arrangements were ideal. It was such a pleasure each morning to make our breakfast in the well-stocked kitchen, often using the fresh eggs that the kids had helped Linda or George collect from the chickens, and then enjoy it out on the patio looking over the countryside.
While the property is situated in a beautiful and tranquil hamlet, we never had to travel more than 20 minutes to find something exciting to do. There are a surprising number of activities nearby ranging from medieval castles to prehistoric caves to markets. Many of our favorite activities were things we didn’t even know about before we came, but Linda is so incredibly helpful and has a wealth of information about the area. She was happy to sit down with us when we first arrived and tell us the best things to do and the best days to do them. We left feeling like there were still so many things that we didn’t get to see.
Although the activities in the area were all exciting, even better were the simple things to do at the house. The kids enjoyed feeding the fish in the koi pond and collecting eggs from the chickens. We all loved the heated pool and hot tub. The gardens and sitting areas are so beautiful and peaceful, to spend the afternoons just reading a book or taking a nap.
I can’t end my review without mentioning Chef Dimitri. The two meals that he cooked for us were the best we had our entire vacation, we are still talking about his incredible meals.
We rarely go back to the same place more than once because we enjoy traveling to new places, but we all left the Dordogne already thinking about when we might be able to return. Linda and George did such a great job making us feel at home. We can’t wait to go back and visit again!
Stunning and PERFECT !!!
We loved this stunningly beautiful and very spacious villa with all of its charm and character. The villa is just perfect in every way, and sits in a peaceful setting and region full of history - lots of castles, prehistoric caves, two beautiful rivers, historic places and pretty villages on your doorstep. When we arrived at the Mulberry Tree Villa we were instantly thrilled. The villa was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. The Mulberry Tree Villa is straight from the pages of Homes and Gardens! It is the perfect place for relaxing, lazing by the pool and cooking and eating long, lovely "family" meals both in and out doors. The property is beautifully finished and furnished, very well equipped with all the comforts of home. We have stayed in many gites and houses in France, and the Mulberry Tree Villa is definitely the best equipped. You really won’t want to leave the villa it’s just that comfortable and perfect! (we were a group of 10 friends and a baby)
It is situated in a picturesque location close enough to all the beautiful attractions the Dordogne has to offer, with only a 5 to 10 minute drive to the local supermarket and town but still with a very rural feel. Linda and George our beautiful hosts were very helpful and friendly and I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. I would go back right now if I could!
Linda is amazing with all of her knowledge and recommendations on the area of things to see and do. Definitely have her help you with getting tickets to the famous Font de Gaume Caves and the new Lascaux 4 International Center, if you are interested in prehistoric history, they both are a MUST!! We also loved Chateau Beynac, Marqueyssac Gardens, and Chateau Castelnaud, just to name a few… Another must is to bring in Chef Dimitri, our family had never experienced an evening like this, and we will all treasure it for years to come…
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a magical holiday it is absolutely stunning and PERFECT! Much love Roger & Karen
DREAM COME TRUE !
Our week at the Mulberry Tree Villa, was the culmination of a lot of dreaming about bringing friends and family together for my 70th birthday. The Mulberry Tree Villa was the perfect gathering place, and George and Linda are both the most wonderful hosts. Their home is so perfect and comfortable, with all the little and big comforts that are such a blessing when traveling. Their home had everything that we could ask for, that we felt as if we were in our own home. Lots of space with lovely 2 living rooms, a huge dining room that can seat 12, large bedrooms with comfortable beds, and plenty of bathrooms!! Outside you have 2 large private patio areas and beautiful gardens for everyone to spread out and relax. We loved the heated pool and spa after a day out and about in the countryside. Linda’s advice and tips on sightseeing and dining were invaluable. Dimitri cooking for my birthday dinner was truly a special gift, “what a meal, and dessert you will not want to share”. This truly was a dream come true, thank you George and Linda, for the best of memories.
We are within a short driving distance of many fascinating historical sites, such as Les Eyzies and the famous Font de Gaume caves, and the beautiful medieval town of Sarlat. There are stunning villages and Châteaux to explore as well as the Dordogne and Vezere rivers offering fishing, kayaking and canoeing. For wine enthusiasts we are close to the vineyards of the Bergerac area for wine-tasting expeditions and of course there are plenty of superb restaurants to experience the local cuisine. There is also a different local market situated in a nearby village or town for every day of the week. Sarlat throughout the summer has an extensive program of music, arts, night markets, fairs and activities for all ages. The town of Sarlat has a wonderful food market each Wednesday and Saturday. Also Le Bugue offers an organic market on Tuesday and St Cyprien on Sunday. For outdoor activities: cliff climbing, hot air ballooning, zip lining, flying, kayaking, canoeing, cycling, golfing, hiking, and hundreds of châteaux's and caves to explore.
