Sue and Dave Scales would like to welcome you to their restored maison-de-maitre.
Set in a small stone hamlet overlooking a tranquil green valley yet only minutes away from the beautiful historic village of St Jean-de-Côle with its bustling restaurants.
Alternatively there is the local medieval town of Brantôme which must be one of the top attractions in the Dordogne.
We are less than an hour's drive from the airport at Limoges which connects with many destinations in the UK. In the other direction, Bergerac airport is about 85km and Bordeaux 100km. Car rental is easy from all these airports.
Our house is light and spacious throughout and furnished with a mixture of French and English antiques to give a country-house feel.
Each of our two large bedrooms can accommodate up to four persons and include a shower room and WC. We also have two double rooms with a shared bathroom which are available at a reduced rate.
Meals are taken in the elegant chandelier/candle-lit dining room where a log burner and comfortable seating provide the perfect setting for an aperitif.
On beautiful summer evenings we make use of our terrace dining where you can take in the view with a glass of wine.
The two acres of gardens comprise a Mediterranean style courtyard with shady terraced seating and to the rear extensive stone terraces with lawned gardens leading to a large swimming pool and sun terrace. The whole garden offers extensive views over the valley.
Rooms are available all year at a tariff of between 50 and 75 Euros per room depending on the number of persons and season. A continental breakfast is included in this price. Payment should be made at the end of your stay in Euros cash.
Evening meals are available by prior arrangement for either 20 or 24 Euros per head, with wine and an aperitif included. Children's meals are available at reduced cost. Our food is freshly prepared using local produce and vegetarian diets can be catered for as long as you inform us at the time of booking.
Alternatively we can recommend lots of good local restaurants.
Situated in the Perigord Vert region of the Dordogne we are only a few kilometres from the edge of the Limousin National Park and are close to many tourist attractions. These include the historic town of Brantôme with its Abbey and extensive waterways, the magnificent Chateau of Puyguilhem and the caves at Villars.
We would also highly recommend a visit to the Chateau at Bourdeilles with its historic tower and of course the cathedral city of Perigueux.
This area also offers opportunities for walking, cycling, canoeing and fishing or, of course, just sitting around the pool doing nothing.
Cycles and helmets are available for hire from us.
If you are visiting our area to look for a house, we would enjoy sharing our experience of moving to and living in France with you. For more expert advice, there is an excellent English-speaking estate agent within a few minutes' drive.
