Les Brugues and Le Chardon in the Dordogne

Les Brugues and Le Chardon, something for everyone

Frank and Julie Mosley, with over 15 years experience in helping their guests enjoy memorable holidays, now have something to suit everyone.

Their original property, Les Brugues, is a 300 year old Périgordine farmhouse, fully restored to charm holidaymakers year after year. Many families have become firm friends returning again and again and Les Brugues’ delightful oval pool is the place where many of their children will remember learning to swim!

Medieval villages, outside dining area, tranquillity with pool and garden...

Les Brugues sits within the heart of the Bastide country. The beautiful medieval villages of Monpazier, Villeréal, Monflanquin, Beaumont, Issigeac and Villefranche du Périgord are all within easy reach and the stunning Château de Biron is within walking distance. Beyond Les Brugues’ secluded pool area, the open fields lead on to endless woodlands where wildlife abounds and pretty walks await those who can tear themselves away from the tranquillity of the house, pool and gardens. South facing, the outside dining area at Les Brugues is often favoured with spectacular sunsets - a chilled glass of local rosé makes the perfect accompaniment.

Architect designed home, heated pool, super king size beds, near bastide towns and villages...

Brand new in 2018, Le Chardon is, by contrast, an architect designed, ultra modern home boasting a 10m x 5m heated pool which, at a constant depth of 1.2m, it is ideal for families and perfect for pool games. Broad, full width steps make a safe area for toddlers to splash around in or granny to cool her feet with a good book and a glass of wine! Le Chardon (French for thistle) is so named as a nod to Frank and Julie's Scottish origins and is beautifully furnished throughout. Harris tweed is a feature of the decor as are Frank’s original paintings. Sleeping up to 10 guests in 4 large bedrooms all with super king size zip lock beds which convert to twin beds if preferred, bedroom 1 also has a set of bunk beds. The house is spacious and therefore the perfect destination for a large group of family or friends. Not far from Les Brugues, Le Chardon nestles in the friendly village of La Sauvetat just minutes from all amenities in the nearby village of Lacapelle Biron and within easy reach of all the Bastide towns and villages.

Wine tastings, river cruises and hot air ballooning...

Frank and Julie are dedicated hosts and always happy to help their guests get the most out of their visit to this beautiful corner of France. Excursions, restaurant bookings, wine tastings, river cruises, canoeing, tennis or hot air ballooning - whatever will enhance your holiday experience, Frank and Julie are more than happy to help, recommend or arrange.
