This floor plan was prepared in good faith and may not be exactly to scale.

The Dordogne region, in the heart of the southwest, has been fought over for centuries by the English and the French – some would say they’re still at it – and no wonder. It is an area rich in all the delights France has to offer. Beautiful dramatic scenery greets you at every turn: castles perched high over the Dordogne River valley, the spectacular Gouffre de Padirac caves, tranquil rivers winding their way through limestone cliffs. Our earliest artists descended 17 thousand years ago into the caves near Lascaux, on the Vézère River, to paint in breathtaking colour the animals they hunted; you can visit a replica cave, as well as many other prehistoric sites in the area. The fortified “bastide” towns of Monpazier, Eymet, Villefranche, and others are remarkably well-preserved witnesses to turbulent times. The mighty donjon of Bourdeilles castle looms imposingly, while Brantôme (the “Venice of France”) wears a more serene aspect, the beautiful Benedictine abbey gazing contemplatively down onto the river Dronne.

Mr K. McQueen (2015)

Wow, what a beautiful tranquil accommodation. The land, pool, property where breath-taking, also the horses and vegetable garden. The house was absolutely stunning, decorated to a very high spec. Veronique was very lovely and welcoming and it was a pleasure to see her when she attended her horses.

Dr Caroline Summers (2012)

Beautiful property. Owner couldn't do too much for us - even bought us a coffee grinder when we asked if there was one!

Mr Ian Graney (2012)

It was luxurious and tranquil in an area of great beauty. The region itself is unique and exciting.

What an idyllic spot! The breath taking views can be enjoyed from all the rooms, the wisteria-clad terrace and the pool area. This is a lovely wild part of the Dordogne close to the Rouffignac caves and with pretty villages all around.
