La Vieille Forge
A truly authentic French holiday home in the Périgord Vert: intimate rooms with wooden beamed ceilings, cosy fireplaces, thick stone walls and charming wooden shutters on the windows. Surrounded by nothing but greenery, there is plenty of privacy! Highly recommended for those looking for the ultimate French experience!
The former forge has been completely renovated and transformed into a gem by the River L'Isle. It is now a luxury holiday home with all modern conveniences. The elements that characterised the old forge have been preserved, such as the old fireplace and stone staircase with rope rail. The owners have lovingly restored everything and presented it beautifully. The large dining room has been beautifully lit, enticing everyone to have dinner together, to discuss the day or play games. Those who want a moment to themselves can snuggle up in the extension by the window and enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and a good book. It goes without saying that the bedrooms and bathrooms on the top floor have also been beautifully renovated: the rooms are superbly painted, the wooden floors are sleek and the bedding matches perfectly.
The outside area is absolutely fantastic*: an enormous garden with woods and an amazing swimming pool of gigantic proportions! Measuring no less than 18 x 8 metres in size, with a depth of 1.6 to 2.5 metres and equipped with a diving board and good lighting. On the sun terrace, sun beds are waiting for you to drift away to the sound of the river. A picnic table and a bar await you in the pool house, inviting you to cool off in the shade with a refreshing drink. Because the site is located directly on the river, you can easily walk to the water, where you can picnic, swim or fish in peace - with or without a swimming teacher, sports coach or fishing instructor (all available for hire).
The holiday home is situated near the medieval town of Jumilhac le Grand, making it the ideal place for lovers of historical sites.

We had a great time had at La Vieille Forge. Owners Brigitte and Patrick are diskreet and at the same time very helpful. Any question about excursions, restaurants... is answered comprehensively and immediately. Also we were given little treats: home-made jam, freshly picked figs, fig tarts...

It was a very nice holiday. This is a beautiful authentic house. You can see that the owners have done their best. You have a lot of privacy and it is very quiet and in a beautiful green area. The owners are hospitable and are ready when you need them. Our kids also enjoyed themselves in the large swimming pool and with the ping-pong table. The adjoining river offers plenty of entertainment for the kids.
