A lovely four bedroom holiday home in the Dordogne area of France. Built in 1800 from local yellow sandstone, the house is one of the largest and most important of the village. It is located in the very heart of the village on a quiet, narrow lane and has splendid views of the chateau, the old buildings of the village and the surrounding countryside. The shop, church and post-office are about 100 yards from the front door and the auberge is about 5 minutes walk. There is a small, flower filled garden opposite the property which belongs to it and to the rear, there is a large adjoining garden and orchard overlooking the surrounding fields. The house has been sympathetically restored to bring-out the best of the early nineteenth century features and has been decorated and furnished in a luxury, modern and sophisticated style.

The house specifically has no pool, in order to preserve the tranquility of the village setting. A house designed for peaceful, relaxing, stylish holidays, family get-togethers, celebrations or chilling-out.

Since the property is on two levels, set into the hillside with stone steps in many places, it is unsuited to wheelchair users.

The beautiful, well stocked gardens and small orchard, on different levels and backing onto open farmland, are a real feature of the property. There is plenty of garden furniture and a barbecue. Although there is no pool, there is a lake within easy walking distance, which has swimming, boating and other leisure activities, together with a lifeguard at peak times.

The recently finished (March 2014) apartment in an outbuilding only 50 yards from the house can be rented in conjunction with the house to add accommodation for a further 2/3 persons.   UK +44 (0) 1903 733006   SPAIN +34 902 888 061.
