Le Tilleul is a lovingly converted barn in a peaceful location with outstanding views. It features a stunning 12m x 6m in ground pool and private garden, with direct access to 100s of kilometers of forest trails.

Our local town of Excideuil supplies all shopping requirements including pharmacies, supermarkets, banks, post office etc. 4 kilometers to the south is the sleepy village of Toutoirac - perfect for morning croissants! The market town of Thiviers – birthplace of Jean-Paul Sartre - is 30 minutes to the north and the ‘capital’ of the Perigord, Perigueux lies 30 minutes to the south.

We even provide bike hire and mountain bike hire & can put together a tailor-made activity holiday especially for you...


Family accommodation on the doorstep of all the attractions of the Dordogne.

Le Tilleul is the perfect base to explore the Dordogne region - historically known as the Perigord – on the borders of the Perigord Vert, Blanc and Noir and just an hour’s drive from the Perigord Pourpre. Less heavily frequented than the south of the region, The North of the Dordogne has its own unique countryside and towns to offer but without the crowds.

Idyllic - A peaceful retreat.Close enough to the local amenities but far enough for total tranquility. The Gite is furnished to a high standard. It has everything you need. The main bedroom & wet room have a Boutique feel. Our requirements were for a smart place to relax & recuperate. The pool & terrace certainly provided this. This is up there with the best of any places we have rented.
