My Grand mother used to live there. For her job, she's been traveling all the around the world and has decided that the Périgord was the right place to get retired, with beautiful landscapes, houses and castles behind every curves. For many years working as a photographer in Paris, we were in hurry to come back home for too rare and too shorts holidays. And on the way back to Paris we were thinking all the time how the space, the light, peaceful landscapes, the hills, the seasons of the Périgord would miss us. Now that Internet High speed is available in the middle of our woods, we enjoy working here all around the year and we are glad to be able to share one of our cosy cottages of our property and our verdant & peaceful country side. And will do our best to receive you as we do for our friends. So to see the Périgord in a different way, come and sample the charms of a farmhouse, aTraditional Perigourdine House, built with stones in XIXe century, it is in an exceptional position. Cottages of our farm we rent are building completely separate from our own house. Built on a hillside on over 7 acres of land, half fenced fields, half woodland. You can enjoy the silence interrupted only by birdsong, or admire the starry night sky, which is unpolluted by urban lights. Ideal hideaway for romantic holidays.
We are right in the Heart of Périgord Noir (for the Gps 44°54'28' N 1°21'12' E). Easy to reach, despite the popularity of the region, all the buildings of our farm are in perfectly quiet surroundings where you can relax. Halfway in between the beautiful Medieval Town of Sarlat and Souillac (Motorway & Railway station, 10 mn from home) & Halfway too, in between the White Périgord , the Green and the Red One and Quercy regions and on the edge of Correze and Lot. So there is lots to see and do as in Paris. Within a radius of 30 miles there are lots of places to visit: monuments to France's medieval history (Valley of the Castles (there are 1001 Castle along the Dordogne River, most of them built during the 100 Years War in between France & England) and the gem in Périgord's crown, Sarlat la Canéda), prehistoric sites all along the Vézère river (Lascaux, Les Eyzies, Collonges la Rouge, etc.) and also lots of architectural, historical and natural sites to see in Quercy (Padirac chasm, Pech-Merle, St Cirq la Popie, etc.). And not forgetting the gastronomic delights which must be sampled.
