Magical Fairytale in the Dordogne

At Hosted Villas we always do our best to create a memorable and special trip for each and every one of our guests. One recent guest travelled to the Dordogne region in France with four girlfriends to celebrate the 60th birthday of one of her friends:

“Oohlala, I have fallen in love with the South of France and Hosted Villas! The bicycle rides to the charming villages nearby, the food and the people; it was a magical fairytale come true. No picture can do this beautiful countryside and manor house justice. I recall my first night stay after a long journey; I fell fast asleep in my beautifully furnished bedroom and woke to a display of fireworks that I could see from my bed and at that moment I really thought it was a dream.

The staff was friendly and warm and it felt like we were a part of the family. Our Local Host Jackie was so much fun and coordinated all of our desires. One of mine was to take a hot air balloon ride over the Périgord region. She made that happen. Amazing !

We had a wonderful prepared meal by our housekeeper. It was such a memorable meal! The housekeeper’s husband always made sure we had fresh bread every day and even prepared our breakfast. I may add he drove me to and from the balloon ride and many of the remarkable sites of this historical region. Truly Magnifique!”


A delicious traditional French breakfast- all part of the HV experience!


Ballooning in the Dordogne…magical!

If you would like to experience your own Magical Fairytale in the Dordogne, why not stay at the stunning Chateau Esperance situated in the heart of the Périgord Noir.
