If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in sunny south west France our 17th century farmhouse is ideal.
Chauffour offers bed & breakfast accommodation along with two character self-catering holiday cottages, set in the beautiful Dordogne countryside and within easy reach of the many attractions of this fabulous region of France.

Our holiday gites have their own private garden and terrace and are located in a large enclosed garden with a wonderful enclosed swimming pool.
Our 12m x 6m swimming pool is fully fenced with a lockable gate and has a safety ledge around the edge of the pool for small children. There is a raised decking area with sun loungers for sun lovers or if you prefer, our arbri offers some welcoming shade and is great for an afternoon nap in the hammock.

The accommodation is ideally placed for visiting the nearby attractions of Aubeterre and Riberac.

Our cottages are family friendly and include baby equipment such as cots, stair gates and high chairs, along with wooden train sets, toys, books and DVD’s to keep your little toddlers, babies and children occupied.


La Porcherie is a lovely holiday cottage that can accommodate up to 4-5 people.
The downstairs bedroom with ensuite provides a downstairs toilet and a great room if you want to bring a grandparent or an older child too.

You enter La Porcherie through a conservatory, laid out as your dining area; this is a great place to enjoy the warmth of the Dordogne sunshine. This leads into an open plan lounge and kitchen with wood burning stove (available between October and May - wood charged locally at cost) ideal for out of season breaks.


Garden and Swimming Pool

As well as your own terrace and garden area there is a large shared garden area offering swings, slides, toddler see-saw and slide, table tennis table, badminton, boules, balls and other garden games.

The 12m x 6m swimming pool is fully fenced and offers sun loungers on a raised decking area, table and chairs and an all important hammock.

Ribérac – large market town with lots of local shops, including two wine caves and two big supermarkets. Lots of restaurants for both lunch or dinner. There are free music evenings in the square Tuesday nights in July and August.

Brantôme – very pretty, described as the “Venice of the Perigord”. Lots of good places to eat including a Michelin starred restaurant “Le Moulin D’Abbaye”. Also with good canoeing along a gentle stretch of river.

Beautiful chateau and river at Bourdeilles in the DordogneBourdeilles – nearest chateau to visit with interesting furniture collection, good restaurant nearby called “Le Moulin du Roc” at Champagnac de Belair. Canoeing also possible at Bourdeilles.

Perigueux – with its lovely medieval centre and cathedral and is also full of good shops and interesting little pedestrian back streets, lots of pavement cafes and boat trips available on the river Isle.
