|Further details indoors||
The two double bedrooms at the front of the house are large beautiful rooms with views of the garden and across the fields of vines that surround the house. Very comfortable with high quality bedding, both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms.
The third double is light and spacious and boasts a contemporary four poster bed, high quality bedding, natural stone walls,chandelier and original art work. A delightful private bathroom with bath and shower and far reaching views over the Dordogne valley services the third double bedroom and adjacent twin room, both bedrooms having their own entrance. These bedrooms are ideal for parents with younger children. The twin room is, again, very comfortable, with views across the Dordogne valley and has a door that leads out onto the garden.
The second twin room is on the mezzanine floor. Great for older children, it's sufficiently far enough from parents enjoying early evening aperitifs and will allow for acceptable levels of giggling and naughtiness. The mezzanine has its own private 6m x 4m sun terrace and its own private bathroom below.
The large living area with herringbone parquet floor is the place for a game of chess or tiddly winks, a quiet read or maybe a game of battleships. A wall mounted flat screen allows you to access British and French television or to choose from the many films on D.V.D.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
A love affair with France has been long and enduring. Her natural beauty, finesse, glorious climate, fertile land and rich and varied produce have made her desirable and desired throughout the centuries.
Forces of nature and conquest have carved an area rich in culture and diversity. Lascaux and surrounding caves house the largest art collection of pre-historic paintings in the world. Fortified medieval towns form the back drop to weekly markets. Vines cultivated, most famously in St Emilion, Pomerol, the Medoc for Margeaux and Graves for Sauternes, produce some of the finest bottles of wine money can buy.
And Bordeaux, an incredibly elegant and vibrant city awarded world heritage status for its dramatic sweeping classical and neo-classical waterfront is a haven of art galleries, parks, museums, great restaurants and shopping galore!
The 'Gourmand village' of Juillac, set on high ground overlooking the magnificent Dordogne valley, has its own award winning restaurant. Rows and rows of immaculate vines produce highly acclaimed wines and many vineyards 'open doors' throughout the year inviting visits and tastings.
Concerts, antique fairs, art expositions and night-markets and many other events run throughout the summer months in Juillac and neighbouring villages.
For those who enjoy exploring, cycling, local walks and canoeing are a great way to get to know the area and appreciate the tranquillity and outstanding beauty. Bring binoculars for great birdwatching!
