How we got here

We have been taking our family holidays in the Perigord Noir for the last ten years. Back in 2012 we decided that the time was right to buy our own place, and thus began a two-year search for the perfect holiday house based on all the knowledge we acquired during that time. 

As soon as we saw Le Chause Haut we knew that this was the house for us, as it was in the perfect location for a holiday in the Dordogne.

Our experiences have also allowed us to equip and furnish the house to the standards you would expect to make your stay both comfortable and memorable.


We are sure that once you have seen this part of the Dordogne for yourselves, like us, you will want to return again and again.

This property ticks ALL the boxes! Very well appointed, great position high above the Vezere river overlooking a chateau. Close to many caves and prehistoric attractions. Lovely local villages with great restaurants and bars. Vides and Brocants abound! David and Lorraine are the perfect hosts with helpful advice if needed. The heated pool situated on a terrace above the property is probably the nicest we have come across in many years. WIFI and Sky also nice to have! There are at least three outside places to sit and eat plus a big table in the kitchen. It will take some beating! Lovely, lovely, lovely!
Well, the holiday started before we arrived, Dave and Lorraine were so very helpful with journey routes, shortcuts and food - listen to them, you won't be disappointed. The house was immaculate, comfortable and equipped with everything you need - even a teapot and a washing machine that worked properly! The salt water pool was lovely and warm (so many places say `heated` but don't feel it), the views and location very peaceful and relaxing. It's perfectly located for visiting the multitude of places of interest in the area. Our hosts were super-kind, just easy, likeable people. They were available for a chat or glass of wine, when we approached them. They were never imposing. Their knowledge of the area is great, so they have some good tips which we took on numerous occasions, never to be disappointed. Would we go back with our girls (9 and 11) - absolutely yes.
We have stayed in many homes both in France and in the US, and this was hands down our favorite. Dave and Lori live right next door and are always available to address any need. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly want, the beds are comfortable and the view is spectacular!! We spent lots of time by the pool which overlooks this stunning view. It was a great couple of weeks and we got sentimental saying goodbye to Dave and Lori. They're the best!! If you're looking for a quiet home base from which to see this incredible part of France you need look no further.
