BIENVENUE! WELCOME!

"Dordogne is said to be one of the most beautiful rivers in France. The variety and beauty of the landscape and the architectural glories that mark its banks make the valley a first-class attraction... Gastronomy in the Dordogne ranks high among the marvels of France."

      — Michelin Guide

"France may one day exist no more, but the Dordogne will live on just as dreams live on and nourish the souls of men."

      — Henry Miller


My grand-father Paul, who lived in Périgueux, bought a house in Mézels in the early 1900s. Generation after generation the children in our family have learned how to walk on the terraces of Mézels... how to ride a bicycle in its pathways... and hopefully this will continue for generations to come. This place is really special and new additions to the family keep on falling in love with it. Just like my wife Heidi, who grew up in California, but is a Périgourdine at heart!

Welcome to our website. Here we introduce you to our region — the Dordogne valley and the Lot —, our village, and the Savignac farmhouse which we offer for rental. We hope we can welcome you personally, with your family and friends, soon, at the Savignac house, for a memorable vacation, French style!

A bientôt!

Jean-Pierre and Heidi
