THE STORY: In 2014, Emilie Ergoll, who grew up in Normandy before moving to Paris, fell in love with the Périgord region and this old 18th-century farmhouse. Eight months of renovations later, Bel Estiu (“nice summer” in Occitan) welcomed in its first guests, in a space with dried stonewalls, old mirrors, modern pieces and linen sheets. In addition to the three beautiful rooms upstairs, the house also has a 200-square-meter living space with a living room, a dining room and a shared kitchen. And don’t forget about the swimming pool that’s heated from April to October! Starting at €90 a night (2 guests).
TOILETRIES: Damana hand and body gel.
INTERNET: Free (wifi).
BREAKFAST: Included, with tea and Brûlerie de Sarlat coffee, bread, croissants, homemade jam, artisanal butter, local cheese and charcuterie, fruit salad, freshly squeezed orange juice and homemade gâteau or cake or panna cotta.
MINI-BAR: No, but Emilie has a wine list with Bergerac vintages (Rosette, Pécharmant, Bergerac), artisanal beers and fruit juices.
LITTLE LUXURY: The really well equipped kitchen, where you can make your own meals, just like at home.
