With panoramic views of the Dordogne countryside, this beautifully renovated farmhouse sits within 35 hectares of stunning gardens and woodland and boasts a private tennis court, heated swimming pool and home cinema. With spacious grounds and luxurious facilities to enjoy, it may be difficult to venture into the outside world, but the renowned medieval town of Sarlat is just a short drive away for shops, restaurants and places of interest.
Dating back to the 18th century, this refurbished farmhouse is composed of 2 wings, connected in the middle to form a ‘U’ shaped property. With beamed ceilings and original features, this estate is as well suited to the winter months as summer, curled up in front of the open fire with a book, and snuggled in the home cinema to watch a film, or sunbathing by the pool after a game of tennis.
Punctuated by picturesque villages, bastide towns, medieval chateaux and pre-historic caves, the Perigord Noir region is attractive both for its rich heritage and natural landscapes. Within a short drive you can reach Sarlat-la-Caneda and Domme, full of life with restaurants, shops, market stalls and street buskers. With numerous pretty villages to explore in the area, it is also worth visiting Marquyssac gardens and the Clos des Sources in Vitreac. At La-Roc-Gageac you can visit ancient troglodyte dwellings or embark on a river cruise on a ‘gabarre’, the typical flat bottomed boat of the region. Further afield you have destinations such as Rocamadour, Belves, Bergerac and Perigueux well worth a day trip, with numerous vineyards producing some of France’s most prestigious wines en route.
With all the latest technology available here, it must be one of the most up-to-date houses in the region, still offering calm and charm and well-placed to immerse yourself in all the Dordogne has to offer. Visit Sarlat and its market on Saturdays and Wednesdays, the Chateaux of Beynac, Feyrac, Castelnaud and Milandes, Les Jardins de Marqueyssac and Eyrignac, the city of Domme, the Castle and Caves of Commarque and Caves of Lascaux, plus the UNESCO World Heritage village of Rocamadour - will one week here be enough?!

The holiday was magnificent, for several reasons.
I thought I would let you know thar we are back from our second trip there.
The holiday was magnificent, for several reasons. The house, as you know, is in a stunning location with a fabulous garden and court and pool. So private, yet close to exquisite sites. Bedrooms and sitting room fabulously comfortable. But what was particularly excellent was the hands on support we received. NOTHING was too much trouble — we had air conditioning to get us through the heatwave, advice about vineyards and places to see as well as useful practical information. I think the owners have clearly got the property managed in a very professional way and we felt at home there, but also well supported.
There is nothing I can suggest that would have made the holiday even more wonderful. So nice to be in France, in a French owned house, staffed by people who know their region and are supremely helpful.
