Stylishly decorated throughout in a comfortable, tasteful, modern and clean style you will instantly feel at home in the Joli Canard. The entrance leads you to the lower level of the property and a tidy functional area where you can hang up your jacket, kick of your shoes and breathe a sigh of relief, you're now on holiday!

On this level there is a sunny bedroom, dressed with luxurious fresh linen, and comfy scatter cushions. A romantic french-style antique wardrobe is the statement piece of this room, along with the handmade ticking curtains which frame the window. Accents of calm warm colours throughout the soft furnishings and artwork give this room a truly welcoming and relaxing feel. For those visiting in the cooler months, there is an added bonus of underfloor heating which is a real treat for snug mornings. Also on this level is a large modern bathroom suite, fully tiled, sleek style with walk in shower, heated towel rail and, underfloor heating.

The upper floor, via the original staircase, is a feast for the eyes, deep colour palates are matched with bold statement pieces of furniture, along with notes of travel and interest. The mixture of textures, artwork, modern and traditional pieces work well in this interesting dual aspect functional room.

The comfortable L- shaped sofa seating/television area is a nice space to enjoys views of the peaceful traditional french village, looking beyond the village to the Dordogne countryside and lush green fields. A bluetooth speaker enables you to enjoy some music of your choice, DVD player to watch a movie, or perhaps play a game or choose a book from the varied selection on offer! The village church is a stones throw away so you can always rely on the chime of the bells, its the only thing that will stop you from loosing track of time in the Joli Canard. Also in this room is the dining area and kitchen, with ample seating for 4, ideal for large meals, boardgames and entertaining, the kitchen very functional and of a modern style with oak worktop, hob top and a microwave/convection oven along with essential and some non essential extras!

This leads us nicely to the patio doors which open directly into the lovely private garden area, outlined with scented lavender hedges, grapevines, honeysuckle and colourful rockery plants. This area is entirely private and enclosed for any dogs who may want to join in on the family holiday! Wooden outdoor furniture with cushion pads, parasol and Werber BBQ are also provided for guests. Enjoying the peace of this garden is wonderful - it's the perfect place to paint or sketch the traditional Perigordian village houses with the lovely roofs that flick up at the end, like a jolly hat! Or perhaps you would just like to do nothing? Then you really have found your perfect spot.

For artists, chauteau hunters and alike, the owners who live across the way have a great view of the chateau from their garden. They would be happy for you to enter their garden to take in the view of Badefols chateau, which stands proudly above the Joli Canard, its circular towers and 'jolly hat' roofs are really quite spectacular, whats more is you can see so much detail, being less than 500 metres away!

In order to enrich your stay we've thought of some ways to make your holiday one to remember, easier, more enjoyable and interesting!
Local breakfast hampers can be provided, which include homemade and fresh local produce varying dependent on the season.
Picnics (Pique-nique!) for your day trips or light-lunches for you to enjoy in the peace of your own garden can also be requested.
We have two bikes which can also be hired - for all of the above just ask. Special requests are welcomed, the owners will do their very best to make them happen!

As mentioned the Joli Canard is a dog friendly property and your private garden area can be used by your dog, however larger grassy areas can be found in the village or surrounding countryside. There are some well mapped out walking routes from the gîte. We do however ask that dogs are well behaved, not exercised on site, and are not left on their own at any point.

There is ample parking for cars in the village and are within close walking distance to the gîte.

Joli Canard is offered on a self catering basis and is split over two levels. Sleeping 4 in total, with one double bedroom (downstairs) and additional sofa bed in the living room area. This spacious property is well equipped, with a sunny open plan kitchen and living room area which opens directly into a private enclosed garden. Very large modern bathroom suite with walk in shower and underfloor heating.
