Maison des Tours (Ref. 0306) - Gite rental Domme

For 4 persons - 850 € to 1950 € / week
An amazing original property, perched on the medieval remparts of Domme. Quality furnishings, 2 air conditioned bedrooms, huge "secret" garden, private pool and fantastic views. A dream destination!
From the street, this house looks just like many others in Domme - but don't be fooled by appearances!
Push open the front door and you will discover a house full of character, tastefully decorated and mostly furnished with antiques yet with all modern comforts. Nestled on the top of the medieval remparts of the village, it offers spectacular views from the terrace to La Porte des Tours - the original gateway into the village, and Templar knights prison!

INTERIOR DESCRIPTION:
*********************
The front door opens directly from the street into:
* an entrance hall serving as an office, complete with a desk, lamps and bookshelves.
* a short corridor leads to the main living area which offers:
- two extremely comfortable and welcoming cream sofas, a large solid wooden bookshelf housing the flat screen TV, a coffee table and numerous lamps, providing a lovely cosy, and romantic atmosphere in the evenings. Large french windows open onto the terrace set on the remparts, and offer impregnable views over the countryside beyond.
- a corner dining area with antique dining table, chairs and sideboard
- an open plan kitchen, hidden from the lounge by an original wooden screen and butchers block. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge freezer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, coffee machine. A glazed door also gives access to the terrace.
* A tiled shower room with vanity unit and toilet completes this floor.

A lovely wooden staircase leads to the first floor where you will find:
* a large landing area with desk and chair
* a first double bedroom with an original sculpted bed and bedside tables. The bed is a large double (160cm wide) and is completely unique! This bedroom has windows over the street and benefits from air conditioning for those hot summer nights!
* A second double bedroom, also with a large bed of 160cm wide and a window offering views over the remparts and garden. This bedroom also has air conditioning.
* a shower room with vanity unit and plenty of storage space
* a separate toilet completes this floor.

Bed linen and towels are included for your comfort, and internet WiFi access is available throughout the house.

Despite the comfort and the quality of the interior furnishings, it is without doubt the exterior space of this property which gives it that "something" truly special!

* A terrace built actually onto the remparts offers views across the huge garden, pool and countryside beyond. There is a wooden table and chairs and a gas barbecue for al fresco dining.
* A conservatory offers a covered space for relaxing whilst enjoying the view over the Porte des Tours, which is illuminated every evening!
From this level, a path leads in front of the owners house (who lives next door but is rarely present and when is, extremely discreet!), down some stone steps and actually through an archway in the remparts!
* At this level you will find the wonderful pool, private, south facing and surrounded by decking and established plants. There are sun loungers and a large parasol ideal for lazy afternoons!
* A vast garden, all lawned and surrounded by shrubs and flowers stretches before you, and leads to a lower level where the more adventurous can wander amongst the hundred year old trees and discover the nature rare in the centre of Domme!
* On an upper level, and accessible via the street, or via a steep slope from the garden, is a private, gated parking area for two cars.

**PLEASE NOTE**
Due to position of the house on the remparts, with steep drops and steps, it is not suitable for children under 12 years of age, and they are strictly under the responsibility of their parents.
Guestbook

 

This was one of the nicest places we have stayed in Europe. The decor, the view and the atmosphere of “ Maison des Tours “ is terrific.
Lovely House & Location
Fantastic house with beautiful views in an idyllic location. Great pool and facilities; really helpful owner and Domme is stunning.
Wonderful home in a delightful village
We loved everything about this property. The house, the grounds, the pool, the gardens and the village of Domme were all fantastic. The house is pleasant, has a very well equipped kitchen, and a great place to relax after a day of exploring. We especially enjoyed the outside spaces. The terrace was a wonderful space to enjoy a glass of wine and hors d' ouvres as the sun went down. The pool was clean and well maintained. Domme, though small, has a great boulangerie, a reasonably well equipped grocery store, numerous shops where local goods may be purchased and some reasonable restaurants to choose from.. The pizzeria just down the street was a great place for an excellent pizza.The Thursday market was a treat-many fresh products and a chance to interact with local residents. Veronique and Jean were extremely helpful in showing us around the house and providing information about must-see sights in the area. They had put together two very helpful books for guests. One book explained how to use all the appliances in the house, the other had all sorts of information on the area-from how to get medical attention to where to eat, and visit. We would love to stay here again. We are happy to recommend it to anyone.
Great place in Domme!
Beautiful home against the medieval walls of Domme. Veronica and Jean have a well furnished 2 bedroom home, very comfortable and quiet, nicely furnished and equipped. Amazing views from the living room and back patio overlooking the valley. Large private backyard with a pool! Domme is quiet, charming, many food options, and close to the sites of the Dordogne.
Beautiful home with stunning location.
We loved our stay in Domme. Very relaxing but interesting historical town with plenety to see or do. Great Location with easy access to other points of interest. But the actual accomodation and gardens were exceptional. Very impressive views and facilities. You could not ask for more. We hope to return soon.
Stunning!
My husband and I have just had the most wonderful week staying in La Maison des Tours. Everything about the property was superb - the view/location/proximity to the town of Domme/the welcoming and helpful support of the owners. All this - and the interior comfort of the property couldn't have been better - tastefully furnished throughout and the added bonus of the lovely swimming pool area made it a very memorable holiday. We would highly recommend the property and very much hope to return to do it all over again! Couldn't praise it highly enough.
Ein zauberhaftes Domizil für unvergessliche Erinnerungen
Anfang April verbrachten wir zwei wundervolle Wochen hier und hätten mit unserer Auswahl der Unterkunft nicht zufriedener sein können. Überaus freundlich empfing uns Véronique und führte uns durch das Haus und über das beeindruckende Anwesen. Die hier auf der Webseite aufgeführte Beschreibung und die Fotos können kaum die Realität wiedergeben.
Das Haus befindet sich unmittelbar an der mehrstufigen Stadtmauer woraus sich der in Terrassen angelegte Garten ergibt. Wunderbar wurde der Pool integriert. Wir fanden genügend Rasenfläche vor, um uns beim gemeinsamen Spiel zu betätigen.
Die Straßen im Ort sind schmal und aus diesem Grund jeweils nur in eine Richtung zu befahren. Durch einen separaten Zugang konnte unser Fahrzeug unmittelbar auf dem Grundstück geparkt werden. In dem kleinen Ort sind die wichtigsten Geschäfte vorhanden und zahlreiche Restaurants fußläufig erreichbar.
Wir fanden das Haus sehr sauber und komfortabel vor. Die Küche beinhaltet alle Utensilien, die für eine Selbstversorgung notwendig sind. Beide Schlafräume im Obergeschoß sind groß und liebevoll eingerichtet (wie im übrigen das gesamte Haus). Die Terrasse lädt bei Sonnenschein und der Wintergarten bei weniger schönem Wetter zum Genießen der herrlichen Aussicht ein.
Insgesamt sind wir von Anfang bis Ende der Meinung, dass dies ein toller Ort für einen erholsamen Urlaub ist. Wir können diese Unterkunft jedem sehr empfehlen.
Exceptional
A superb home and gardens in a unique location. The garden with it's historic walls was a delight - a great place to relax in the shade of the vines. Tranquil and calming yet within a few minutes walk of Domme's shops and restaurants. With parking in the secure garage for our bikes, a refreshing pool, and the charming discreet owner Veronique ensuring everything ran smoothly, our week was perfect - an outstanding property!
Fantastic house
We loved it! The house is very nice, well equipped, and comfortable. The outside space - terrace, sunroom, and gardens - are especially nice. We ended almost every day with a glass or two of wine there. Inside was also nice with two nice-sized bedrooms, two baths (great shower in the upstairs bath), good living space downstairs, and a very well equipped kitchen. Domme was a great choice for us as well - it's a very cute village in a very central location for touring the region. The town is so small that I imagine it gets a little crowded in high season, but in May it was great. There isn't much shopping in Domme itself other than the Thursday market, but a nice supermarket, great boulangerie/patisserie , and a very nice shop with local food products are all within 5-10 minutes, and of course the fantastic market town of Sarlat is only 20 minutes away. Veronique was extremely helpful in showing us around the house, providing lots of information about the area, and helping with our questions. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!
Confortable, très bien décorée et bonne bibliothèque !
Vue magnifique, le charme du village en plus... excellent accueil du fils de la propriétaire, attentionné et très au fait des possibilités de découvertes dans les alentours. Merci pour le séjour parfait.
Un séjour exceptionnel dans une région fantastique

La location est tout simplement extraordinaire aussi bien pas son emplacement avec une vue à couper le souffle que par la beauté intérieure et extérieure de la maison. Madame Loyez, charmante propriétaire des lieux, vous accueillera avec un grand sourire et sera toujours disponible pour répondre à vos attentes. Habitué aux locations estivales, cette expérience est certainement la meilleure à ce jour. Sûr que je reviendrai.
Un séjour merveilleux
A stunning and comfortable house with amazing views from the terrace and a lovely, very peaceful garden. We were there for six days, but wished we could have stayed longer!
Un séjour très reposant dans une très bel endroit

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. La maison, le jardin sont exactement comme décrits. Chaque endroit a ses attraits : la terrasse extérieure, la terrasse d'hiver qui est très agréable aussi l'été avec sa véranda coulissante, le jardin fleuri. La piscine est un vrai plaisir.
L'emplacement de la maison conjugue calme face à une vue superbe et très dégagée, et proximité des petits commerces à quelques minutes à pied. Nous recommandons cette location et remercions vivement la propriétaire et son fils pour leur grande gentillesse, jointe à beaucoup de discrétion.
La maison correspond parfaitement à la description. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par la propriétaire, charmante et sympathique, et avons passé un très bon séjour. La maison est bien fournie , propre et accueillante et le jardin splendide. Merci pour ces belles vacances!
Nous avons passé 10 jours magnifiques au Maison des Tours. La maison est
aménagée avec beaucoup de goût et avec tout ce dont on a besoin (et même
avec plus). Les deux chambres calmes ont de grands lits très confortables et
avec la climatisation, on peut bien dormir la nuit en saisons avec grande
chaleur. Sur la terrasse supérieure, il y une piscine avec chaises
longues et parasol. Nous avons pu profiter de la piscine - le
propriétaire s'est occupé de l'entretien de celui-ci et ceci très
discrètement. Les propriétaires nous ont accueilli chaleureusement et nous
ont tout montré. En cas de besoin, on peut les contacter facilement. Nous
nous sommes sentis au paradis! Nous recommandons la maison sans hésitation
et sans réserve. Domme est idéal pour faire des excursions dans la région.
Nous avons beaucoup aimé les grottes de Pech Merle et de Lascaux IV, le cité
médiéval de Sarlat-la-Canéda, l'excursion et bateau sur la Dordogne et aussi
les golfs dans la région qu'on rejoint tous en max une heure en voiture. La
maison est idéale pour des vacances sans souci!
Amazing house, wonderful location.
Excellent house with an even more amazing garden over 3 levels ! The views from the terrace were also really beautiful. The A/C in the bedrooms was most welcome as it was a very hot week. The house is beautifully furnished with great taste and style. Véronique and her son Jean were very helpful and made our stay very comfortable. The addition of a garage was extremely useful in a village where parking is difficult.
Great holiday, great week ! We will be back !!
Beautiful house in a stunning location
This house in Domme is just perfect. We stayed for a week at the beginning of June, and had a lovely time. The house has ever thing you would need for your perfect holiday, and the views from the Terrace are exceptional. Veronique, the owner, and her son were very helpful, advising on the best places to eat in the area. We will most certainly be returning to this very special house.
Très agréable à tout point de vue !
Nous avons passé les fêtes de fin d'année à Domme, et le séjour a été vraiment très agréable !
- des hôtes très à l'écoute, et très avenants
- une déco atypique et originale qui donne des idées pour chez soi
- la propreté des lieux, rien à redire!
- la propriété est très agréable et bien située
- les petits déjeuners sur la terrasse au soleil en plein mois de décembre restent un très bon souvenir
- le salon est très confortable et chaleureux

Nous reviendrons ! Soit en hiver, à nouveau, soit en été pour profiter de la piscine !
très bon séjour
