About Carolyn Thompson
I moved to France to live permanently in 2016 with my husband Jerry and our Working Cocker Spaniel Inca. It's hard not to fall in love with this area. We had explored this region on holiday when our children were very young and again 20 years later when they were all grown up. Our attraction for the Perigord Noir had never diminished and so now we find ourselves living our own little dream and having a French adventure. Le Peyruzel is a special spot, it remains very unspoiled and operates as a working farming community, crops here are mainly Walnut groves, but also wheat, barley, hay, maize, and sunflowers too. Our properties sit nestled on the slopes and enjoy the most amazing views across the Ceou valley and beyond. The properties are about 200 years old and formed a cluster of ancient farm buildings, they have been lovingly restored from dereliction by the previous owners over a period of 20 years and have operated as gites for many years. A brand new pool built into the slope has been created by us in summer 2016 and this has been a most welcome addition to the property and helps to ensure that our children come to visit us regularly!
Carolyn Thompson purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Carolyn Thompson chose Daglan
The thing that sold this property to us was the character of the buildings themselves, the quality of their renovation and the views. When you drive in you just feel peaceful, relaxed and at home.... it’s as simple as that!
What makes this Cottage unique
Location, location, location….to be in such a perfect spot and yet so close to so many of the regions gems it what makes Le Peyruzel a special place.

Excellent location in a lovely little gîte with very accommodating hosts. We would definitely come back here for a relaxing holiday by the pool. Thank you!
Terrific accommodations, even more terrific hosts
The gite was wonderful. Quiet country setting, private patio, access to pool, kitchen stocked with necessary items (including condiments), everything one might wish for. Best of all were our hosts, Carolyn and Jerry. Formerly of the U.K., they compensated greatly for our lack of French. We were able to ask questions and obtain advice. They provided a notebook of suggestions regarding restaurants, market days, sites of interest, et al. They even made a restaurant reservation for us and allowed us the use of their phone when ours went on the blink. We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip to France and our choice of accommodations played no small part in the experience. Highly, highly recommended.

Lovely Gite in a fabulous location
We loved our stay at Truffle. The gite is very well equipped & beautifully decorated. It also has a great laundry room which is useful when traveling with children. Our children loved their bedroom with the mezzanine bed and they especially loved the pool. We were able to swim at night under a sky full of stars as there is no light pollution in this area. The location is really central to lots of the Dordogne’s beautiful Châteaus & villages. The gite & pool have wonderful far reaching views of the surrounding area and we loved spotting the passing hot air balloons. Carolyn & Gerry were very friendly and welcoming and we loved our visits from their lovely dog Inca. We also arrived to find a welcome hamper with wine, cheese & other essential, this was a really nice touch.There is lots to do in the area and we would definitely love to return.
Lovely Early Summer Holiday
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing time in Truffle gite, excellent location within 20 minutes of so many attractions and being able to retreat to the peacefulness of the countryside and spectacular views. Very friendly and helpful hosts who were a pleasure to be with for our stay, including the friendly 'working' dog Inca. The gite itself is very well appointed and thought out, everything we could think of or needed was there, most importantly a tea pot ! The new heated pool has spectacular views over the countryside and very comfortable relaxing chairs. A good place to be, especially the evenings to enjoy the sunsets. If anybody wants a peaceful retreat, yet very close to many of the main Dordogne tourist attractions, then look no further, you will be very happy here.
We are in the heart of the Perigord Noir and really close to all the major attractions that this stunning area has to offer. Here are just a few of the places close by some just a few minutes from us
