I cannot rave enough about my recent stay at Perigord Retreats.  I received a warm, family welcome and the surroundings of stunning countryside coupled with the tranquillity made my stay a memorable experience.  Lovely pool, spacious and charming accommodation and I have already booked my return visit for 2017. Nicky B., London

 “Angela cooked for our family recently whilst staying in South West France. Her regional specialities were great and the use of local food with her explanations of what, why and where from went down well with everyone. Her duck was the best I’ve eaten”

An ideal painting holiday in a beautiful retreat set in the Dordogne region of France, close to picturesque small villages, farmland and poppy fields.  Visit places where the houses are built into the rock face and view spectacular escarpments.  Enjoy eating typical French food and locally grown vegetables and fruit.  This peaceful place will inspire artists of every genre.

Calmness is fabulous and by day 5 your pulse will be operating at a different level.
Soak up the ambience – paint all day and night if you wish – feed the chickens and the rabbits – walk the country lanes discovering another gem – the choice is yours.

DO come if you really want to concentrate on rural French life, the history of the area and not be embroiled in traffic and fumes. Ev H., Australia
