Leave behind life’s distractions and retreat to the French countryside.


Le Verger is a comfortable stone built house set in the rolling Dordogne countryside of South-West France just outside the picturesque village of Savignac-Lédrier. To find out more about our unique range of Retreats and Courses, please use the navigation options on the left .


Accommodation is in individual or shared rooms in the main house, the Piggery (a converted gite) overlooking the orchard, or in one of our Writer's Cabins (click here to see picture gallery). You will find the accommodation has been kept deliberately simple but is clean and comfortable.


All retreats and courses include:

Full board (home-cooked food with wine)

Airport transfers (Limoges 75 km)

Wi-Fi internet access


Holiday rentals:


The main house is also available for holiday rental, along with the Piggery and Cabins. Please click here or on the Holiday rentals option on the left to view more details.
