LA BLANQUETTE GÎTES & GLAMPING

Self-catering holiday rentals in the Dordogne Valley. Gîtes and glamping nestled in 12 acres of woodland only 5km away from Sarlat-La-Canéda and a luxury apartment in the very heart of the town itself.

Category: Accommodation

Dogs welcome!

Dogs are now welcome at La Blanquette! We have several options for accommodation should you wish to bring your four-legged friends.

Two of our our gîtes and one of our glamping tents are dog-friendly and can accommodate your beloved canine family members! Vine Cottage, Le Petit Gîte and Truffe Noire each have a fully enclosed private garden allowing your dog to wander and play to its heart content! Furthermore, we have also created a large fully fenced off-lead exercise area in the heart of our shady woodland, meaning that your dog can get the exercise that it needs while being in a safe and secure environment.

La Blanquette – Bed & Breakfast

lb_blog_52

After five successful years at La Blanquette, co-owners Mr & Mrs Dolman (a.k.a head-chef Julie and wild-woodsman Frank!) have decided to enjoy full retirement and spend more time with their three pugs, campervan and in their local village pub back in the UK.

Therefore the B&B has now closed so that Nik and Jason can focus on running the Gites, Glamping and City Pad accommodation.

lb_blog_52_a

We would all like to say a big thank you to all the B&B guests that have supported us and that we have welcomed and hosted at La Blanquette since 2012.

Although the B&B is now closed, we’d love to welcome our past B&B guests again to the Dordogne to stay in our lovely Gites, Glamping and City Pad accommodation.

We will shortly be announcing some new exciting developments that will complement the fantastic accommodation we offer here in the stunning Dordogne Valley… watch this space!

1 Place de la Liberté

lb_blog_51

New for the Summer season 2016, also available to rent, is our town apartment ‘1 Place de la Liberté’. Set in the heart of the celebrated old town of Sarlat, as its address suggests it is located on the main square with direct access to the many restaurants, cafes, bars and boutiques.

If you prefer the hustle and bustle of the thriving medieval city and its market rather than retiring of an evening to the rural calm of nearby La Blanquette, then this accommodation is for you!

The apartment has 1 bedroom and a spacious open plan living area to accommodate 2 people in luxurious comfort. Unusually for a Sarlat apartment it has outside space in the form of a courtyard garden.

For more information and to check availability visit our new ‘City Pad’ page, or contact us.

Our Bakery Service!

lb_blog_49

We offer a daily ‘bakery run’ service to our gîtes and glamping guests… we introduced it last season and it proved so popular we are doing it again this year! Just place your order ready for the morning and we’ll collect your freshly-baked bread and/or pastries from the local bakery and deliver them to your gîte or glamping site in time for breakfast.

The pastries and breads are fresh baked at the local ‘Pain de Proissans’, our favourite bakery! Just get your coffee ready and enjoy some delicious pastries for petit-dejeuner!

Bougan Villa, Bottom Bay, Barbados

lb_blog_14

Also available to rent, Bougan Villa is a lovely house situated in a small and quiet development in Bottom Bay on the unspoilt SE coast of Barbados in the West Indies. The house has been finished to a very high standard and has all the accommodation and facilities needed to ensure that visitors have an amazing holiday on this beautiful island.

The Atlantic breeze on this side of the island means that even on the hottest days the temperatures are comfortable. Bottom Bay beach (voted as being in The Times’ and Conde Nast’s top-ten best beaches in the world) with its white sands and coconut palms is 3 minutes amble away. Harrismith, Palmetto and Long Bay (our personal favourite) are also stunning beaches which are just a short stroll.

The villa has three bedrooms and can accommodate 6 people comfortably.

For more information and to check availability visit our Bottom Bay website, our Bougan Villa web page on Holiday Lettings or contact us.

Normandy Grange

lb_blog_11

In the North of France we have holiday accommodation available in Normandy.

Normandy Grange is made up of two properties: La Grange and La Chouette. The properties are set in a small hamlet in the rural landscape of inland Normandy, an hour’s drive South of Caen ferry port and close to Vallee de la See.

La Grange has 6 bedrooms and can sleep a maximum of 12, and La Chouette has 3 bedrooms and can sleep a maximum of 6. They can be rented separately or together, giving a maximum sleeping capacity of 18. Both properties have recently been renovated to an extremely high standard, and are fully equipped with modern appliances. The original parts of the buildings date back to the 18th century and although they have been carefully brought into the 21st century, period features such as exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces mean that guests are still able to appreciate the character of what was once part of a working French farm.

There are extensive grounds and each property has its own pool for use by guests.

For more information and to check availability visit our Normandy Grange web page on Holiday Lettings or contact us.
