The house

  • Quiet, rural area

An old farm with modern conveniences (internet access, WiFi, LCD television, DVD, top of the range kitchen appliances ...) mixed with the charm of an authentic restoration. In a world where we tend to forget the real vlaues, special attention has been paid to the use of genuine materials such as walls made out of a mixture of sand and chalk, stone tiles, chestnut and poplar wood, and restoration of the roof by using old recovered tiles. The house offers a library with an important collection of regional literature.

On the ground floor a living room of 4 m2 with an open fire and a dining room with an open kitchen fitted with top of the range kitchen appliances.

The rooms of the ground floor give access on one side to an inner yard with two lime trees of more than hundred years of age each, under which breakfast and siesta in the shade can be taken, on the other side there is access to the swimming pool and the gorgeous "Borie" in dry stones ...

For those seeking peace in an exceptional natural environment ...

a private heated pool (10m x 5m) with salt water, behing the house and an astonishing stone hut (Borie), a masterpiece of the old rural architecture of the Perigord and a herb garden with aromatic plants (thyme, laurel, savory, salvia, mint, coriander, basil, chives, parsley, sorrel ...).
You will also find rapsberries, redcurrant and a vineyard ...

  • Ruud en Carla Wiedijk from Zaandam,

    10 stars

    Wij zijn hier met onze kinderen geweest. Wat een geweldige ervaring! Zo’n prachtig authentiek huis. Gelegen in een mooie zeer rustige omgeving. Alles was aanwezig in het huis om er een onvergetelijke vakantie van te maken. De gastvrouw Marie Isabelle was er om ons te ontvangen en wegwijs te maken en uitleg te geven. Wat een allerhartelijkste dame is dit. Ook het zwembad was geweldig, wat 3 x per week werd schoongemaakt. Kortom een echte aanrader voor de rustzoeker.

  • Alexandre et Anne from Paris,

    10 stars

    C'est très rare de voir une maison de location aussi raffinée. Tout a été pensé, rien n'a été laissé au hasard, le raffinement est dans tous les détails. C'est une propriété digne d'un magazine de décoration. Nous avons été sous le charme d'une semaine inoubliable. On ne sent pas floué comme c'est le cas très souvent lorsqu'on loue des maisons à la semaine. Que dire de plus ? Merci pour ce séjour.

    Fantastisch verlof gehad. Paradijs op aarde! Vanaf ons aankomst tot ons vertrek is alles afgelopen zoals een droom. Marie-Isabelle kent er iets van om mensen te ontvangen. Een aanrader. Wij keren alvast terug volgend jaar. Karen de Grave
