A beautiful classic French farmhouse with massive outhouses around a central courtyard. All the atmosphere of a french Farmhouse with all modern expectations. All bedrooms have a bathroom alongside them. There is an additional bedroom suitable for children but with no bathroom alongside it. We have , internet, TV, ultra modern kitchen and central heating. However the great difference with our property is the wonderful outdoor living area with sofas, dining room table for 16, fully fitted outdoor kitchen with dishwasher all alongside the glorious pool overlooking the countryside. We also have a huge indoor cinema with lots of movies alongside the pool for the occasional wet day. We designed our perfect holiday house and we rent it out when we are away. We chose the area because we loved it, lots of chateaus, ancient towns, the river with boating and , of course the Caves. Monpazier one of the most beautiful medieval villages in France is our local village with lots of boutique type shops and restaurants as well as croissants for breakfast. Heaven.

We are in the Dordogne, a magical unspoilt part of France. Also known as the Gastronomic area of france. The local food is sensational, relive on Duck and local cheeses,fruit and vegetables, there are great restaurants everywhere but the local produce is so good , you won't need to eat out much. The towns are unspoilt by modern development, time has passed this part of France by.
However, fortunately there are masses of tours attractions to visit if you have the determination and lots fro kids to do as well. The river Dordogne meanders through offering lots of opportunities fro swimming boating and picnics.
The area of france is also known as Chateayu country. It was owned for a large part of its history by the English which is why there are so many fortified towns and villages.
beautiful unspoilt country for bike riding and exploring.
Perfect climate even for us fussy Australians. Hot enough to swim from May to October. Beautifully cold in winter with snow.
So many festivals in area particularly in the summer they publish a book which lists them all, every weekend there is an antique market or other event close by.
We are in the heart of Bastide country. Within a 15 minute drive you can visit the most beautiful Bastide towns, fortified Mediaeval villages such as Beaumont,Villereale,Monpazier and Cadouin. Each of the local villages has a day market with lots of fresh local produce and a night market with music and wonderful food from the region.
There are may chatreaus nearby so with small children you can go on short day trips and see a different tourist attraction every day. There are also lots of attractions specially for children as this is the holiday area for the French so children are well catered for.
