PEYRECATY COUNTRY ESTATE
The estate was purchased 30 years ago by an English lawyer who fell in love with Peyrecaty and La Dordogne countryside. It was a big project as stone cottages, derelict buildings and barns needed renovating. Architects where employed and artisans sought. A swimming pool, tennis court and bar were added and enormous diggers created the sand playground.
After a couple of years of coping with the red tape and long leisurely French lunches, Peyrecaty was ready to welcome families. Our original founders created a style of family-friendly holidays in France that has been copied many times, they should be very proud of their accomplishments.

52-acres of fresh air
We have fields, meadows, orchards and woodland for our guests to explore.
Within the estate is our hamlet of stone buildings, barns and villas with a wide range of facilities for families to enjoy.
Peyrecaty sits in an area that was originally inhabited by cavemen 30,000 years ago. Since pre-historic times people have enjoyed residing on the hill. Over the years, farmers working on the estate demolished the old stagecoach Inn to build themselves new homes and cattle sheds. A shame as the Inn must have been an impressive building. But it is nice to know Peyrecaty has been welcoming guests, long before it became a family-holiday resort! Maybe that accounts for the wonderful ambience here.
