Strikingly stylish in an enviable and beautiful location, this property has been restored to a high standard in 2014. Large open plan living areas and well proportioned bedrooms give a real sense of light and space. This has been accentuated by the white washed walls and south facing rooms overlooking the terraces, gardens and heated pool. La Badoussie is a Perigordian stone house with attached converted barn providing 5 generous bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 reception rooms and a modern well-equipped kitchen. There's a lot of space for children too: in addition to the pool they will love playing in the lawned gardens or exploring the wooded areas beyond. La Badoussie is set within the Perigord Noir, famed for its history, cuisine, châteaux and stunningly pretty villages. The house is 4km from the famous Perigordian village of Daglan, 10 km from the River Dordogne and 20km from the Renaissance town of Sarlat.

Amazing French house in a stunning location
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at La Badoussie and really impressed with the style of the house and the size of the outside space. Every bedroom was a good size and each had its own view and character. If you like cooking then you’ll love the kitchen - so well equipped and plenty of space. The highlight for us though was the heated swimming pool and breathtaking view from the back of the house. You could see for miles down into the valley and even better with a glass of local wine. The owners were great and answered all our questions in good time. I would highly recommmend this place for a great family holiday and even better with friends.
A wonderful house in a beautiful part of France
Even better than the online photos, La Badoussie is a great house in which to have a family get together. Well-equipped eat-in kitchen, two sitting rooms, large dining room, outdoor dining, helpful owners. Close to the village of Daglan, which has a grocery, bakery and three restaurants. We visited in the month of September, which we highly recommend, as the throngs of summer tourism come to a halt on September 1.
What a beautiful house and David & Colleen had thought of absolutely everything! The house is perfect for a large family or as we were, 2 families sharing. We opted to have the pool heated which was worth the it as the children were never out of it! The location of the the house is perfect for exploring the the stunning local towns and villages, but a car is essential as there are no immediate amenities within walking distance, but Daglan is only a few minutes away in the car where you can find an adequately stocked small supermarket, boulangerie and restaurants. We went to Le Petit Paris and thoroughly recommend it, for such a rural restaurant the food was superb and the waiting staff were very attentive.
My "top tip" - We are not astronomers but due to the lack of light pollution try the night sky is a truly stunning and magical sight, it became our late night "thing" and on one night we saw 4 shooting stars!! A memory that will live with us for a long time.
Thank you David & Colleen for providing us with an amazing holiday and for allowing us to share your little bit of Dordogne paradise.
This house is perfect for a large family or 2 families to share, Colleen & David had thought of everything. The house is not only beautiful but had the most stunning view. We opted to have the pool heated which I think was money well spent as the children were never out of it. The surrounding area is one we know well and the property is very well located to explore the stunning local villages. The outside space worked really well for evening meals on the terrace. We did venture in to Dalgan for provisions and had a meal at Le Petit Paris, which was exceptional considering how rural you are. We had our car and this is a must as there are no amenities within walking distance but within a 30 minute drive you can certainly explore the very best the Dordogne has to offer, even if you are only staying for a week, as we were.
I wrote a "Top Tip" in the guest book but wanted to share it here too as this was one of the unexpected highlights of our holiday. We are not astronomers but due to the lack of light pollution on a clear night the stars were literally dazzling, a truly amazing spectacle, on one night alone we saw 4 shooting stars!
Thank you David & Colleen for sharing your beautiful house, we very much enjoyed it being "ours" for a week!
Beautiful location; beautiful house
We had a fantastic family reunion here in late June. All generations loved the pool. We sat up late and watched the heavens fill with stars. Convenient for Sarlat-la-Canéda and Lascaux IV.
Amazing! Spectacular! Absolutely perfect!
It's hard to put into words how great our time was at La Badoussie. David and Colleen were gracious and accommodating from the very beginning of our contact, and once we stepped into the house our party of 10 felt like we were home. History and authenticity were evoked at every turn, while offering every modern convenience. Plenty of room for all. Classy decor. Lovely indoor-outdoor set-up. Breathtaking views. Spot-on advice. Ideal location. We could go on and on. If we are fortunate to make it back to the Dordogne, we all agreed that there would be no need to look any further that La Badoussie for accommocations - because you can't improve upon perfection. Many thanks for helping us have an unforgettable holiday in France, starting with the perfect home base.
