The Dordogne strikes a chord with so many because it presents the quintessential image of a rural France idyll with its bucolic, patchwork farmland, dreamily green valleys, hilltop medieval villages and fairytale castles. Simply Périgord are among the best Dordogne holiday rental companies with a range of great accommodation

The Quality of Our Houses
We have tried very hard to choose properties which are well situated, well equipped/furnished and offer good value for money.
We know all our properties very well indeed and if you have any questions about them please do not hesitate to ask on firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on +33 (0)5 53 54 54 31
Arrival and Departure
Your Dordogne holiday rental will be ready for you to take possession between 4pm & 6pm on the first day of your holiday. If you have any problems en route and will be unable to arrive before 6pm it is very important that you telephone our office before this time so that alternative arrangements can be made. We can accommodate a Sunday arrival but there may be a 'call out charge' of €25. You must vacate your property before 10am on the day of departure & return keys in order that it may be prepared for incoming guests.
Breakage & Cleaning Deposit
We request a returnable deposit, which we ask you to pay with your final account, or with your full payment if you are booking less than 9 weeks before the start of your holiday with us. This deposit is noted on the 'Additional Information' section of our website for each individual property and is held by us on behalf of the owner to cover any breakages, damage and/or extra cleaning necessary. Regarding cleaning, we do ask our clients to leave the property clean. If a house requires extra cleaning Simply Périgord reserves the right on behalf of the owner to deduct a suitable amount from the Breakage Deposit. A Final Day Cleaning service is available for those clients who do not wish to clean on Departure Day. Please ask for details.
Our Minimum Standards
Pets on Holiday
Many of our home owners accept pets but by no means all. It is therefore important that you confirm with us, at the time of booking, whether pets are accepted in the house of your choice.
The Majority of our properties have pools. These are not normally heated although an increasing number of properties do offer pool heating for a supplement (please contact us for details). Pools are not be available in the Low Season. The use of swimming pools, which are unsupervised, is entirely at your own risk. All pools featured on our website have security systems. However it remains imperative that parents continue to ensure young children are supervised at all times.
Birds, insects and animals are inevitably present in the countryside around the houses, and sometimes live in inaccessible spaces such as the eaves and attic. We must say that to some extent this is normal and we cannot take any action to correct it. Only when, in our opinion, there is a serious nuisance will action be taken.
Some properties have linen included in the rental price, in which case it will be detailed in the property description. Simply Périgord also has a limited supply of linen available for hire at a cost of Euros 25 per person. Where linen is included in the hire of your property this does not include any changeover of linen during your stay. If extra linen is required the normal cost of Euros 25 per person applies.
When ordering linen please indicate on the Booking Form single or double, where there is a choice of beds.
Some of our properties have fixed line telephones (please see the individual website details). Owners' bills are itemised and in these cases, when the bill is received (French telephone bills are generally issued every two months), a copy of the relevant section of the bill will be sent to you and the cost of calls deducted from your breakage deposit, the balance of which will be refunded to you at the same time.
In each of our properties we leave a House Book giving lots of useful information about the house and its surrounding area. Please take a few minutes to read this when you arrive. If you need any more information during your stay you are welcome to call during office hours. (Winter Opening Hours:- Monday - Friday 9am - 12 noon and 2pm - 6pm.
Internet / WIFI
French houses have very thick stone walls and often WiFi signals do not travel to every room in the house. Internet service is for occasional holiday use - speeds can be slow here in the French countryside and not suitable for commercial use/streaming films etc.
