Campagnac Villa - Pays de Bergerac.
Bergerac, Aquitaine, France
Additional Location Information
The village of Villamblard has a tiny Monday morning market, bank, post office, baker, butcher and general stores plus the Raymond Clovis distillery. Founded in 1834 the distillery utilises the same traditional recipes for distilling alcohol. Villamblard gets itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s name from Roman times when the Villa Lamblardi was built and boasts a ruined chateau and countryside walks, a circular walk taking you up to the high forest (Haut Foret).
The Isle valley area which runs west to east has been inhabited since prehistory and traces have been found of cave paintings near Sourzac as well as dolmens and standing stones. The Normans are reputed to have sailed up the Isle and ransacked the valley in the 9th century, pillaging many of the towns on the way, Montpon, Mussidan and the fortified abbeys of Sourzac and Saint Astier. To the north of the Isle lies the 50,000 hectare forest de la Double, a haven for wild life and containing a large lake at Le Jemaye which boasts artificial beach, water sports, nature trails, childrenĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s play area, picnic tables, snack bar and restaurant, worthy of a day out.
To the south lies Bergerac with itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s pedestrianised medieval town centre with charming timber framed stone houses, quaint alleys and old squares. Here you can take a boat trip on a traditional flat bottomed Gabare from the ancient port on the banks of the Dordogne, take the little train on a guided visit of the town, or simply enjoy strolling about. You will find lots of interesting shops, museums and a variety of restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets.
The location is an excellent point from which to set out and explore all that the Dordogne has to offer. You may choose to follow the 'Route des Vins' around Bergerac or visit St. Emilion, the region is world famous for it's wine, which you can sample and perhaps take home with you. The area is full of history and pre-history, from chateaux to caves and cave dwellings, plus wonderful medieval stone villages. Enjoy just strolling around the villages or for the more energetic try canoeing. The pace of life is slow and the climate is very agreeable.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Our stay at Campagnac villa was everything we wanted.
Campagnac Villa was an excellent base to explore the Dordogne. The villa itself was spacious, clean, welcoming and very well equipped. We all loved the gardens and pool, and were amazed at the peace and quiet. The location was ideal in terms of striking a balance between tranquility and places to explore. Paul was very welcoming, helpful and very knowledgeable about the area, providing us with suggestions of places to visit and activities for the children. A really enjoyable holiday. We would love to return! Thank You Paul
excellent value for money !
The website of the owner describes the villa perfectly and the site is up to date. A small road leads to a nice villa with a well maintained (every day) swimming pool. A large , fully fenced garden (very useful if you have a dog). A very friendly host Paul. A bottle of wine as a welcome and during our stay (10 days) he gave us some tips of the area and maintained the swimming pool. The location is very quiet. A bakery is only 5 min, a supermarket 20 min and the nice town Bergerac is only a 30 min drive away. Plenty of things to see in a range of 60km. To end this review I would say "thank you" to the host Paul who made our stay very pleasant and relaxing.
a wonderful relaxing week
A truly lovely villa. Great location - although surrounded by countryside it was only a short drive to Musidan where there are supermarkets and a couple of restaurants. Ideal location to explore the Dordogne- slighly less busy than some of the better known tourist spots.
As we have young children (7&2) a good size garden and pool were important to us .The villa deliverd both. Marvellous garden and great pool - it is particularly good that the pool can be kept secure from the garden so no need to worry about accidents with the kids.Paul cleaned the pool every day. Paul was very helpful with suggestions of where to visit or location of shops ( both before and during our stay)but was not at all intrusive (despite visting daily to clean the pool we rarely didn't see him.)
The villa was exceedingly comfortable. It is one of the best I have stayed in(and I spend a lot of time picking our holiday villas).I hope we will return one day.
A comfortable spacious property in a woodleand setting
We enjoyed our stay at this well-designed house and had everything that we needed. With a mall baby we could not travel far but were able to use the local supermarkets and shops. The pool and satelite tv were a real bonus. Paul was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had. We would recommend the house for any one wanting a relaxing hoilday
Home from home in the beautiful Dordogne countryside.
Campagnac Villa is truly a lovely home from home, a comfortable house with all the amenities needed for an enjoyable, stress free vacation. This clean and well maintained property is situated in a quiet, rural location, perfect for relaxing by the pool, eating al fresco in the garden or exploring the adjoining woodland.
Although beautifully secluded, it is only a short drive to nearby towns and villages to shop or eat and it is a great base from which to explore the delights of the Dordogne.
The owners are wonderfully helpful and always on hand to provide local knowledge and advice, ensuring you have all the information you need for a perfect holiday whilst never being intrusive.
This is the second year that we have stayed at Campagnac Villa. We have enjoyed it immensely on both occasions and hope to return again.
great house, great place
We recently had a great trip to the Campagnac villa at St Hillaire Estitac. From the beginning we were very suprised about the villa and the large space around it. Everybody who is looking for a villa with comfort, everything available in the middle of the Dordogne, should consider to stay some nights here. Compliment also for the owner, did a great job. About the ratings: It's not a cheap bargain villa but for everything you get here, it could be much more expensive. It's worth the money. Check in was ok. Everything was clean and ready. Great comfort, great location, very clean house and not a single complainment about the service.
