Peter and Dorothée are delighted to welcome you in Les Faures.

In 2002, they first discovered Les Faures in the south of the Périgord.

During the last six years they have been planning, building, restoring and putting the finishing touches to the main house and the barn development.

The surrounding garden of nearly one hectare is tended to with much care by Peter, who had planted many trees and bushes. He has also installed irrigation, essential in this mostly dry climate.

Peter and Dorothée, both of Belgian origin, have studied together Germanic languages at the University of Louvain, Belgium. They both speak French, German, Dutch and English
After retiring from their teaching careers, Peter in Verviers, Dorothée in Hasselt, they attended a tourist guide course which particularly aroused their interest in the beautiful nature and rich history of the country in which they now live. Here there is evidence of prehistoric people having lived, and later the troubadours and the Cathars (Catharism was widespread for a short period of time in this region during the Middle Ages).

As linguists they also try to establish the etymology of old Occitan place names.

Dorothée combines the rich cuisine of the Périgord region with products from their own organic garden and exotic spices.
