Domaine de Leygue

The Perfect French Hideaway

Domaine de Leygue is a special place: choose between four beautiful, private, self-catering holiday cottages only for adults,
set apart in gorgeous gardens, with two swimming pools in the rolling Dordogne countryside.
Domaine de Leygue is Exclusively for Adult Couples 'pas d’enfants' - for a peaceful, relaxing holiday in the Dordogne.
The location is superb with the lovely little town of Lalinde, and the River Dordogne, only two miles away.
The Dordogne Region is at your fingertips, and on your cottage step.
Before it was a stunning holiday destination, Domaine de Leygue was a small Perigourdine farm.
Now the main owners house and original stone barn leads you through the central courtyard to the private guest cottages
within the trees and lawns of the private gardens.

Four Private Cottages at Domaine de Leygue:
                 Frances Field is the most spacious
          Graces Gate is more intimate,
both with gorgeous south-facing views towards
the Field Pool and surrounding rolling fields and woods
May Cottage 
  Edwards Tower
are beautifully bijoux and of the original stone
farm buildings.
They are set closer to the Pigeonnier Pool, both having stunning, but differing, panoramic views.

Home Comforts



An avenue of maple trees draws you into the main courtyard of Domaine de Leygue, with its mellow stone barn to the north and owners house to the south.
The setting is over four acres of landscaped grounds amidst tranquil, beautiful dordogne countryside. Because of our high position there are marvellous uninterrupted views across the adjoining valley, fields and woods that abound with bird and wildlife including wild boar and a variety of deer. An abundance of flowering shrubs, wisteria and trees around the gardens and cottages complement the natural honeyed hues of the stonework.
There are private guest parking areas, with a separate driveway for leaving the property.

Free Wifi
Available in all the cottages and at selected spots throughout the grounds. N.B it's rural France, and we have limited bandwidth, but is adequate for general connections.
We have some well chosen gym equipment in the barn for the discerning keep fit fanatic who wishes to keep up with their fitness regime during their holiday. This includes a multigym, rowing machine and free weights.
Swimming Pools


We have two swimming pools to choose from; the solar heated Pigeonnier Pool, and the Field Pool, overlooking fields and woods.
Both the Field and Pigeonnier swimming pools are serviced daily and each has a Polaris automatic cleaner and Clearwater salt treatment system to make your bathing as perfect as possible.
The 'Pigeonnier Pool' (9m x 6m) is open throughout the season and benefits from a solar heating system to take away the chill in the early and later months. With steps and a large shallow area, this pool is ideal for swimmers and non-swimmers alike.
The ‘Field Pool’ (10m x 5m) will be appreciated by more accomplished swimmers as it is longer and deeper.

There is a central guests utility room near the courtyard which has washing machine and ironing facilities to serve Edward's Tower and May Cottage. 

Our bicycles will enable you to explore the nearby countryside - along quiet country roads or by the river - at a leisurely pace.



"Un petit havre de paix au milieu de la campagne Dordogne.Lisanne et Dan sont  aux petits soins tout en restant très discrets. Nous avons passé une agréable semaine de repos, tranquillité, visites de nombreux sites aux alentours mais aussi sportive avec les deux superbes piscines."

SEE & DO, a quick precis


A visit to the Dordogne would not be complete without a morning market visit. There is a market on locally almost every day of the week somewhere, some larger than others , but all gloriously vibrant.

Marche Nocturnes
For summer evenings, food and wine for you to enjoy in gorgeous villages, hamlets and small towns; bring your own 'couvert' , buy your meal and wine from the surrounding vendors then eat, dance and enjoy until midnight.
The Vineyards

There are an abundance of vineyards within the locality offering everything from wine tasting

to full 'appreciation' days and tours. 


Cycling the glorious leafy lanes around Domaine de Leygue, river  swimming near Limeuil,  canoeing  on the River Dordogne, golf at nine nearby courses, walking along the stunning marked  country trails , or chilling on a sunbed  by your cottage with two private swimming pools  to choose from, and a glass of wine.....
