About Domaine de Peyrecaty
Discover the beautiful region of Dordogne and be well looked after by your hosts, who draw on their vast experience to make your family holiday special.
For a family friendly holiday destination that the children will love and where parents are given a holiday too, take a peek at Domaine de Peyrecaty, which is in the heart of the Dordogne, one of the most gorgeous regions of France. This popular holiday estate has 9 houses and an extensive range of facilities, including a large heated swimming pool, so children are well catered for and the parents are looked after too. That’s why families return to Peyrecaty year after year. With a total of 9 families each week your children will have plenty of new friends to make and you'll also be able to enjoy some social times at the bar terrace.
Babies and Children
For the little members of your family, all the baby equipment you'll need is already there including cots, high chairs, sterilisers, baby monitors, bed guards, plastic plates and cutlery, themed children's bedding, plus lots lots more. As well as placing toys and books in each of the properties there is a huge indoor games barn filled with toys, bikes, pushchairs, dolls and games. The fun continues outside with the enormous sandpit, which has been aptly called ‘the beach' by the children and contains swings, climbing frames & slides. And in the shaded woods there is an adventure playground with a wooden fort, horse & cart and plenty of space for children to run around.
Other excellent facilities include a tennis court (all the tennis racquets are supplied) a large heated (28 degrees) floodlit and fenced swimming pool, sunbathing terrace, badminton, volleyball, boules, table tennis and five-a-side football.
Parents on Holiday
Now you know the children will have plenty to occupy them, it's also good to know that the parents have also been taken care of too. Parents can relax here as freshly baked croissants and breads are delivered for breakfast and home-cooked meals available every day. The bar is a great social hot spot for families and there’s quiet corners so you can escape for some peace & tranquility! July & August the owners organise a fabulous canoeing day and Tuesday evenings they host a French family meal which is great for getting to know the other families.

Steve & Helen Humphrey say "A true reflection of knowing that our guests are happy is our extremely high level of returning holidaymakers each year, this is because they know the children are safe, the teenagers are happy and that means happy and relaxed parents!" It does sound very similar to Away with the Kids ethos!
