About Anthonia Udink
My husband and myself, originally come from Holland. We have three children, who are already grown up. The youngest, my daughter Sanne, helps me to manage the property, which consists of 15 ha of land, various houses, which we rent and our own house. We could buy the property of Le Coustal in 1997 and have been renovated and building ever since. 11 Years, my husband, my daughter and myself moved to the United Arab Emirates, as we started there our Engineering Company. At the moment I spent 7 months in Fujairah and the additional month I am in France to help our dedicated staff with the maintenance of the property and assist with the guests staying at our property. Sometimes we have weddings at Lalande-Laborie, the other house we have on the domain and that takes a lot of organisation. We are very fond of animals and have three dogs and two horses at the moment who enjoy life at Lalande- Laborie as well
Anthonia Udink purchased this Farmhouse in 1997
Why Anthonia Udink chose Auriac-du-Périgord
It was love at first sight when we took the small sand path up the hill and saw our house for the first time. Every time when I come back from my travels I am still impressed by the beauty of the surroundings and that I am very lucky that we can live in a 'corner of Paradise'
What makes this Farmhouse unique
I still think the views across the valley and the yellow stone buildings, with the vines and the meadows made me fall in love with Le Coustal

Loved this place!
This place had everything! It was beautiful, comfortable, peaceful, and spacious. Anthonia provided us with helpful suggestions before we even got there, and her daughter, Sanne, welcomed us when we arrived. She explained all the appliances (which were in the Dutch language) and remained available when we needed her. I would definitely recommend this beautiful property and would love to return!
beautiful property in a very picturesque and interesting area.
The farmhouse was full of character and very well equipped. The only small reservation was that the bed linen could have been better for the temperatures - waterproof mattress covers led to very sweaty nights!
The swimming pool at the back door was excellent for an early morning swim, and with the fitness room on hand there was no excuse for laziness.
The meals which we ordered (one prepared and served by two very charming girls, and one prepared and delivered by our hosts for us to serve ourselves) were excellent, as was the hotel/restaurant a short walk away.
Our host Anthonia and her family were charming and very helpful
There were many very interesting places to visit only a short drive away, not least the fabulous cave paintings at Lascaux, and the historic towns and villages including Sarlat (great market) and Domme (fabulous panoramic views of Dordogne and brilliant jewellers/silver shops)
Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated our beautiful region.
Hope to see you again one day in the future.
The Dordogne is one of the most attractive provinces of France. The beautiful forests and hills. The rivers Dordogne and Vezere , where you can enjoy canoeing. The many castles, such as Castelnaud, Milandes and Chateau de Losse and Hautefort.
The lovely towns and villages, such as Sarlat, with its medieval houses and lovely squares,
Perigueux with its beautiful cathedral.
Montignac with its caves of Lascaux and many other things, makes this region well worth a visit.
