Is a renovated collection of old farm buildings nestling within the rolling Dordogne countryside, centrally located for a wide range of holiday activities. Built from the beautiful honey-coloured limestone that is a feature of the region, La Perode is set in ten acres and was until recent times a working farm. A major renovation has brought the facilities up to exacting modern standards, whilst preserving their charm and harmony within the tranquillity of the wider surrounding fields and woodland. Home to a glorious range of flora and fauna, it is a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers, and as an escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life it will hopefully exceed all expectations……
Another fabulous time at La Perode – this time for two weeks. First week with family, second week with friends (& Sally the dog). Spent a lot of time in the pool due to the heat wave. Sunday market in the village was great. Ate three meals at the Bleu Soliel campsite – very nice. Thank you again Alec and Annie for your hospitality and good luck with ongoing restoration.
Thank you Alec and Annie for letting us share your beautiful home. What an amazing place. For a naturalist like me La Perode is paradise. It has been a very special week and being able to relax and get away from it all, doing the things I love has been great therapy for me, helping me get over the loss of my Andy. He would have loved it here too. Best wishes. Jane Ashall, Dawn & Brian Moody, Ramsbottom, Bury, UK June 2019
A great two weeks at La Perode. It was so hot (hitting 46DegC on one day) that we spent most of the time at the pool. However, a couple of places which are good to visit:
Montignac – a pretty town with lots of restaurants & a lovely ice cream shop.
Le Bos – a campsite near Le Bugue which has a big lake with ‘Total Wipe Out’ style inflatables. Also swimming pools and slides. Good for kids but lake & slides open at 1.00 and 2.00pm respectively. About €10pp + little kids are free.
Alec & Annie were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Many thanks for looking after us!

We’ve had a great two weeks. Beautiful area to explore, enjoyed the local caves and Perigueux, a lovely city. Alec & Annie were great hosts. The pool area is amazing and spent most of our time up there relaxing.

Our return to La Perode didn’t dissapoint! Some highlights were:
Canoeing down the river from St Leon sur Vezere; Quercyland for water slides and fun; Gourmande evening every Wednesday (arrive about 6.30pm to get a table & bring your own cutlery and glasses); Look out for local brocantes for some interesting finds...
Alec and Annie, we have had a wondeful stay, again, and hope to return in the future.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome during our stay at La Perode. We’ve loved the pool, especially on the hot, hot days, and enjoyed pottering about around the lanes picking plums and blackberries. Thank you for being so kind with Florence and Hannah, humouring their endless chatter and 20 questions! Both you and this holiday will stay in their memories. Days out we’ve particularly enjoyed: Rouffignac caves, Maison Forte de Reignac, Chateau de Commarque and a beautiful canoe trip from Thonac to St Leon sur Vezere. We’ve also enjoyed our morning excursions to collect still-warmbread and croissants from the (local) campsite. Good luck with the Grand Wall of La Perode!
If the weather had been cooler we would have done more walks in the Balades et Randonnées folder. We did walks from Fanlac & Plazac and both villages have pleasant, friendly restaurants to recover. In Rouffignac the Sunday market and the ‘Gormande Nocturne’ were good fun. The boucherie and epicerie supply good meat and groceries – the butcher is very jolly in his red apron and beret! We couldn’t have asked for more from Annie, Alec and La Perode – a wonderful setting for a family holiday. Thank you.

The nearby village of Rouffignac-Saint-Cernin-de-Reilhac has an interesting history and via a short drive (or pleasant walk) can provide everything from your daily baguette to your weekly shop. Facilities include a great boulangerie specialising in exquisite pastries, a butcher and a small Proxi supermarket, together with a larger Carrefour supermarche complete with petrol station and car wash. Two popular hotels offer complete menus alongside three or four additional bar-restaurants, all within walking distance. Several others provide a pleasant distraction at a very short remove and a busy Sunday market is held throughout the year.
