Settle into the rhythm of life along the Dronne River
Your holiday retreat offers an immersion into the life, culture and history of the Dronne River Valley, located in the Dordogne region of France. Your home is a charmingly renovated 18th century barn, situated on fifty acres of meadows and forests running along the Dronne River. From here you are minutes away from the medieval and Renaissance villages of Bourdeilles, Brantome and Perigueux. This river valley’s history starts with 17,000 year-old cave paintings, follows the growth of the nascent Christian religion, boasts remnants of the Gallo- Roman era and some of the best preserved medieval and Renaissance chateaux in France.
Welcome to Ooh La La France—a cheeky name for a charming experience. Welcome to the magic of rural France. Every day you will experience connections to French life: a visit to a historic site, a cheese tasting right at the farm, and a private tour of a family-run vineyard. You and your friends can sit back and soak in the pastoral countryside while we do the driving. Embracing the relaxing tempo of rural France, all our adventures are close to home. Since your group is the only group in our van, if you see something interesting we can stop and explore. This is your holiday. We have carefully designed it to make sure you experience an intimate side of France. For one very special week, we want you to feel like you live here.
A new twist for 2012: Women and Men! Ooh La La France is happy to announce that we think that including men as our guests might be a good thing. With private rooms, each with private bath and a comfortable living room for shared entertaining, it seems appropriate to open the tours to a more diverse group. (Still, we would love to have those fun-loving groups of just women friends.)
