What you see on the picture is the whole property (in L-shape)...This lovely holiday house is overlooking the valley, set between Montignac and Hautefort, and near the famous caves of Lascaux. The terrace and garden of Tamarinde are south-facing and ideal for sunbathing. The  swimming pool has great temperatures, as it can be completely covered (and opened completely!) in case the weather is a day not so good (of course this happens rarely in this season…). This romantic, very large typical French cottage in the Dordogne is accessed via a lovely gate and has a wild garden with many different flowers. Tamarinde is ideal to discover the beautiful Dordogne and all its treasures. Dutch and English ànd French channels available.


The large living room (60) and very cosy kitchen are the assets of this lovely holiday home. Cook a meal together and enjoy the French life style, the (Dutch) lady owner of the house has been living here for 40 years and has made a true gem of this holiday house, both the garden and the house itself breath love for the region… For the chilly moments there’s a fireplace for some nice warmth.


There are four bedrooms, two with a double bed, one open bedroom with a bunk bed (60 x 190, only suitable for children) and one bedroom has  two beds (80 x 190).  Furthermore there are two  bathrooms and three toilets.


The huge swimming pool 11 x 6 meters is a real surprise. It can be used at all times and the water has wonderful temperatures. Don’t forget to cover the pool at night so the water will stay warm…

As the house is located on a hill, there are stunning views overlooking the valley when sitting in the garden or by the pool. Do go to the back of the garden as there you will have the best views.


Tamarinde is located in the beautiful nature of the Dordogne, in the triangle of Montignac, Terrasson and Hautefort, many beautiful cities/castles can be visited, but it is also a very nice region to make long walks or go for lunch in one of the fantastic restaurants of the area.


If you want to be really active you can go to the river for some canoeing or you can rent bikes and enjoy the environment by bike. Furthermore you can go horseback riding, enjoy beautiful walks, visit famous caves, visit beautiful castles, visit charming villages and towns, etc.

(06-2024) Dear Lydia,
We had a great time at Tamarind House. It was our second time there and the welcome from the owner (Bernadette) was again very warm and cordial.
The house is fully equipped and Bernadette does everything she can to make you happy. The first days we were there the weather was a bit disappointing.
Bernadette ensured that we could light the fireplace in the living room and that a pallet stove could burn in the kitchen. She also came by on the second day with a newly purchased plaid.
All in all we had a great time (walked a lot, saw a lot and had a delicious meal out).
Yours sincerely,
Jessica and Rob

We spent 2 weeks in Tamarind with friends in September. Truly a delight. The house is fully equipped and the hostess Bernadette is always at your service if you want to ask or need something. Really recommended.

(06-2022) Hi Lydia and Thijs,

We have spent 3 wonderful weeks in the house of Bernadette Kerklaan. Let her come from Breukelen and her son lives in Loenen aan de Vecht, so much recognition. The house has a perfect layout for 2 families and is spacious and nicely decorated. Nice big and clean pool. Bernadette is a perfect hostess with a lot of love for the house and flower garden.

Thank you for your mediation and see you next time!

With warm regards,
Ron and Birgit

(09-2021) Hi Lydia,

We enjoyed the big G in Tamarind...
Bernadette and Jacques have a gem to rent out.
They did everything to make our stay nice!
We have completely relaxed, everything but also everything was there, really no comments.
This was a really enjoyable holiday, beautiful house, beautiful surroundings, lovely weather, that's what we go to France for.
We look forward to the next holiday with you, and maybe back to Tamarind

Kind regards, Karin and Dirk

(07-2020) Hi,

We enjoyed villa Tamarinde. It could have taken longer from us! We are not the best photographers, but herewith a picture of the view from the terrace.

We still wondered when we would receive our deposit back.

We look forward to hearing from you and perhaps until next year in Tamarind or one of the other villas!

(09-2018) Hi Lydia

We’re very happy to provided a reference for such a lovely house and accommodating owners:

We had a great holiday in Tamarinde. I don’t think anybody has seen less of the Dordogne than we did. The house and garden were so beautiful and comfortable that we preferred to stay in and relax. The absolute highlight of the property is the range of places to sit and eat or simply chill out. We’d have breakfast on the patio catching the early rays of sun, lunch in the cool dining room out of the sun and then dinner and drinks on the terrace overlooking the garden. In between we’d be playing in the beautiful garden, lounging by the pool or relaxing in the lounge. We were also really impressed with the quality of the furnishings and with how well equipped the kitchen was.  If anything, I would say the reality was better than the marketing.
