Just 2km from the lovely town of Martel, we came across Mirandole, an eye-catching property which has been recently built in the local style. From its elevated position, Mirandole enjoys far reaching views towards Martel and beyond. In fact, the first owners loved the vista so much that they designed the house to take full advantage of its situation.


The ground floor is dedicated to the bedrooms and bathrooms whilst the open plan living/dining room occupies the whole of the first floor. Here, French windows frame the views and in the kitchen area, a window seat has been incorporated into the units. At one end of this spacious room, bi folding doors open fully allowing a seamless transition between the comfortable living area and an inviting outdoor dining terrace, where 5 small steps lead down to the adjacent pool and lower terrace, all positioned to make the most of the evening sun and the sunshine throughout the day.

Modern bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen, comfortable sofas and underfloor heating ensure your home from home comforts have not been forgotten

Entrance hall. Double bedroom with en suite bathroom and French windows to garden. Double bedroom. Shower room. Twin bedroom with en suite shower room and French windows to garden. Utility area (washing machine). Underfloor heating throughout the house. WiFi.

  • First floor: Spacious open plan living/dining room (TV, DVD, CD, wood burning stove) with large French windows and patio doors to pool terrace. Kitchen (oven, microwave, dishwasher). Cloakroom.
  • Second floor: Spacious mezzanine room with twin beds overlooking the living room.


Pool terrace. Built-in barbecue. Private parking. Large grounds (0.5 hectares) of woodland and garden. Private swimming pool (10m x 5m) with corner Roman steps.

Your time will no doubt be spent around the pool and dining terrace, although the rest of the grounds deserve exploration too. Covering half a hectare, they are mainly given over to woodland and have been left 'au naturel'.

To one side of the property is a country footpath which takes you past fields and meadows to the village of Baladou. It is one of many walks that can be enjoyed in this area, as well as other sporting activities such as canoeing on the River Dordogne (5km) and horse riding.


Martel, situated in the Dordogne valley area of the Lot, is a fine example of a Gallic town full of life and exuberance. Historic stone buildings house restaurants, cafés and shops, with narrow streets leading to the main square where a beautiful covered market place takes centre stage. Surrounded by undulating countryside through which the River Dordogne flows, Martel will no doubt appeal to many. Within easy driving distance, you will come across many famous sites including the spectacular village of Rocamadour (21km), the fascinating caves at Padirac (28km) and the well known town of Sarlat-la-Canéda (an hour's drive) in the Dordogne. Closer to home, a ride on the steam train that runs along the cliffs between Martel and St Denis will delight children and we are sure everyone will enjoy the summer evenings in Martel.

(06-2024) Hello Lydia,
We had a great holiday. The weather was not great, but fine for excursions. Regarding the house of Mirandole. Good and beautiful house!

(08-2023) Hello Thijs and Lydia,
Back from our holiday in Mirandole, here are our experiences. What a beautiful house! Before we left, my son, when he saw photos, thought that we had rented a château. Well, according to a definition, Mirandole will not achieve that, but what a wonderfully beautiful (holiday) home. Situated a bit higher, so if there is wind you will get a nice breeze. And what a lovely swimming pool and space in and especially around the house. The rural environment naturally offers peace and quiet, which further enhances the spatial feeling.
And wonderfully close to the beautiful medieval city of Martel. Good for everything else you need. Varied restaurants around the beautiful market hall in the center, a large supermarket but just as many small shops, where regional products are widely available. Market two days a week, some events (even though it was already September) and of course the unmissable steam train. We enjoyed this house and the surroundings, really beautiful. As far as we are concerned, the photos we sent speak for themselves.
It was, in a word, 'amazing'.
In the most literal sense of the word, 'au revoir'.
Harry, Anna and Willy

(08-2023) Dear Lydia,
We thoroughly enjoyed Mirandole, a house that is fully worth the 5 stars. The large living room with open kitchen is especially a pleasure to stay in, especially when the weather is bad. The heated swimming pool is of course wonderful. Thanks for the wine, cheese and baguette on arrival, a welcome surprise. We have not spoken to Fiona, only via text message. It wasn't necessary because everything was as you wish.
The deposit has been refunded and the service from FranceVilla was perfect again every time, thank you for that.

Beautiful location, nice swimming pool!

(08-2023) Dear Lydia,
We would like to let you know that our stay at Mirandole exceeded expectations. A beautiful, spacious clean house, huge garden and a beautiful swimming pool. Everything else was good to drive.

(07-2023) Good afternoon Lydia,
It was a super cool stay!! All comfort as described by you was present !! The swimming pool was also in order and every Thursday it is cleaned and checked by an external company.
The key was in the locker as described in a text message by the owner.
We enjoyed it with all our family. The weather was great too!! Beautiful area for many trips. We have left the house in perfect condition and tidy and have already received the deposit of € 500 back.
Hope to propose a next stay in you. Service was spot on.
Kind regards,
Hans and Karin

(07-2022) Dear Lydia,

Our holiday in La Mirandole was great! What a beautiful house with beautiful pool in a nice quiet area. It was very tidy when we arrived and we also left it in a clean condition.

Together with my family (daughter, son-in-law and the 3 grandchildren) I celebrated my 65th birthday there. We really had a good time.

I have already received the deposit back. Thanks for this quick action. We have not discovered any downsides….

I'll see what pictures we can send. (We still have to sort them ourselves first :-)).

What I find very positive is the very good and clear communication/info that we received from you in advance… I call that service! I will definitely recommend your site to our friends….

(08-2021) Hello Lydia,

Our stay went very, very well. The villa as well as the place corresponded to our expectations. Had a great week.
Just a note, we noticed some bugs in the frame, I think it would be good to warn Mr. Houf.

I will send you very soon a little video of "La Mirande" taken by a drone.

See you next time… .very certainly
