The property sits in open countryside, fully private with no neighbours and is located mid-way between the historic towns of Bergerac and Sarlat-la-Canéda, a perfect spot from which to explore the Périgord and Dordogne, an area of impressive scenery with lavish green river valleys, gorges and limestone plateaux.
In the local village of Urval, (less than 10 minutes walk), you'll find a small café bar, ideal for the first coffee of the day for early risers.
All amenities in the nearby (5 minutes) villages of Siorac, Cadouin, Belves and Le Buisson. Huge choice of all shops, supermarkets and café bars and lovely restaurants.
You can't evoke the Périgord without referring to its culinary traditions and remarkable gastronomic delights. The truffle undoubtedly remains the most famous and sought after product from Périgord but also delicacies such as fois gras and confit, walnuts, chestnuts and cèpes, as well as the well known wines from the Bergerac region will all make a gourmet's heart grow fonder.
Prehistory : Some of the most important prehistoric sites in the world are to be found in Dordogne : Les Eyzies, Lascaux, Font-de-Gaume, Le Moustier, La Ferrassie to mention only a few of the 200 sites listed. The abundance of works of art, shelters and heritage along the Vézère valley are classified by UNESCO as part of the world's heritage.
Châteaux : The Dordogne boasts the greatest number of châteaux and castles, close to a thousand, of all the French départements dating from Medieval and Renaissance times : for example the fortresses of Castelnaud, Beynac and Biron, the châteaux of Bannes and Losse or the ruins of Commarque are splendid places to visit.
Towns and villages; In the Périgord Medieval towns and villages are to be found in abundance and you will see for yourself that just about every place you come through has a charm of its own.
Exquisite examples though are the towns of Sarlat-la-Canéda, Bergerac and Périgueux as well as the bastide towns of Monpazier, Domme, Villefranche and Beaumont.
The villages of La Roque Gageac and Limeuil feature on the list of the most beautiful villages in France. Quite a few famous personalities in the literary field had their home in the Dordogne: the manor and birthplace of the 16th century writer La Boétie are to be found in Sarlat-la-Canéda and the great philosopher Montaigne as well as the musketeer La Calprenède were from this region.
Churches and abbeys : In the hills behind the main valley of the Dordogne you will find the Cistercian abbey and cloister of Cadouin situated on the road to Saint-James of Compostelle. The 10th Ce century tury church of Paunat as well as the recently restored church of Saint-Avit-Sénieur are also of particular interest.
Gardens: Each year more private gardens open their doors to the public : Jardins de Marqueyssac, Jardins du Manoir d'Eyrignac, Château d'Hautefort and Sardy will please the horticultural visitor.
Music and théâtre : Over the summer period you can enjoy a number of music and theatre festivals in the region.
