Juliette Bailey purchased this House in 2001
Why Juliette Bailey chose Daglan
We are right in the middle of the attractive Dordogne valley also known as the valley of the chateaux and despite being here a long time we never tire of the spectacular countryside and pretty medieval villages and towns. There really is no better spot from which to explore the area than our tranquil corner. We are accessible from Bergerac (1 1/4 hrs) and Brive (1 hr) airports and the nearest exit of the A20 at Souillac is 1/2 hr away.
What makes this House unique
Le Tournesol has it's own terrace and parking space. In terms of location it's in a rural hamlet on a hill between Daglan & Cenac-et-St Julien. In the car we are 5 mins from either and they both have shops and restaurants. 5 mins from Domme (bastide town) and the river Dordogne beaches and canoe stations. Only 15 minutes from Sarlat-la-Caneda, the renowned medieval town. The most popular chateaux to visit - Beynac, Castelnaud & Marqueyssac are only 15 mins away too. From our house we also have spectacular walks and cycle rides and can help with bike hire.

Home away from home!
What more could we have asked for - space, comfort, peace and quiet after hectic sight seeing in cities and the warmest and most helpful people to deal with. A well equipped kitchen, very effective washing machine, good wifi connection and ever so cosy cottage, we loved every minute of our stay. Than you Juliette & Stuart for sharing a piece of your paradise.
Painting holiday dordogne
This was such a beautiful location for painting and drawing. Daglan was ideal by the river. The accommodation was really lovely with great views of the valley and fields with wild flowers. So peaceful. Juliette made us feel very welcome and was very helpful. Would really like to return with a group.Many thanks
Really enjoyed our stay. Juliet was very helpful with reservations and very good to work with. Once they are finished with their renovations the compound will be great. Think it is time for a remodel in the the gite and new bedding, towels etc. Very beautiful area.
A lovely holiday in a peaceful setting
We took a risk having a holiday in this area in February/March but we were amply rewarded for our decision. Not only was the weather very kind to us, but the accommodation at Le Tournesol was just perfect for us: very comfortable, clean and well equipped. It's in a lovely setting in a small hamlet on top of a hill, so there are lovely views all round the area. Great for walking: just stroll out from your front door and you're in beautiful countryside. Owner Juliette couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. We arrived as guests but left as friends: you can't ask for better than that. Would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return again in the future. Thanks Juliette - we have lovely memories of our time in the Dordogne.
Thanks guys and I hope to see you again soon. Biz J x
Very nice property, a short drive to Domme and other attraction the area.
Juliette was a very helpful host and the apartment was excellent, clean, comfortable and secluded. It also has CNN so we could watch the news while relaxing in the evenings.
A wonderful rural Gite situated close to all the major tourist sites
The Gite is a charmingly restored old farm building with thick stone walls which maintained cool conditions on the hot and warm days. Our hosts were friendly, charming and very helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening drinks and chats. Their 3 chooks, dog and cat certainly added to the enjoyment of our week's stay. The Gite was well equipped, including an outside clothesline, which for 4 of us most helpful. We were most comfortable staying here and without hesitation recommend this Gite. The close proximity to an excellent Boulangery, kayaking and the villages and chateax of the Dordogne made our stay very very exciting and one we will cherish for a long time
