The eco-biology at the heart of Périgord Noir

eco-biological concept
Are you interested in ecology, in environmental conservation, in eco-biological principles?

Are you looking for a gîte of character in the Dordogne that respects these principles?


The Domaine du Fraysse offers 3 gîtes that qualify, just 15kms from Sarlat in the heart of Périgord Noir.
To put into action our environmental priorities, we offer a choice of two homes adapted to the standards and criteria of the H. Q. E. (High Quality Environmental) of the Bio-Hotels, and their biological habitats.

All due consideration has been given to:

• The aesthetic demands of stone architecture.

The comfort requirements of the occupants.

The highest ecological principles.

The desire to benefit from renewable energy.


Research has been carried out into all the possible forms of pollution, thus ensuring the very great purity of the site.
This included analyses of any industrial pollution in the area, electric and magnetic fields, radio frequencies and hyper-frequencies, the chemistry of the air, and external noise.

In like vein, careful account was taken of any telluric irregularities, fault lines and so on, for the interior lay-outs.
Both the materials and the building methods used are completely in accord with the habitat’s biological requirements – including, for instance, the stone, timber, lime, hemp insulation and plastering, as well as biological treatment of the wood, under-floor heating, recovery of rain water, and “bio” electricity (entirely buried cables, automatic interrupters, etc.).

For the background to all these measures, guests are welcome to see the various reports and documentation established at the time.

Far better than a swimming pool! A small lake with clear water, in which to bathe.


Imagine: a lake of 250m², with a small waterfall, the gentle slope that makes access pleasant for young children to bathe, together with diving from natural rock into water 3 meters deep. Also a 250m² beach of small pebbles, and a sand-pit. For the safety of children, the lake is protected by fencing.
The water is constantly refreshed and recycled from a second pond created specially for the purpose. To conform with our bio-ecological principles, and for your greater pleasure, the water is pure and without chlorine!
