Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

Aquitaine is the most south-westerly region of France, stretching from the Spanish border towards the Massif Central. Dordogne lies to the north of the region, and is famous for its beautiful rolling green countryside as well as its chateaux and, of course, its cuisine, especially duck and foie gras. The climate is very pleasant and summer temperatures average over 24C from May till September. Although labelled as 'Dordogneshire', the north-eastern part of the department remains unspoilt by tourism and expatriates and is made up of small farming communities enjoying a quiet and traditional way of life.

Perigord, the former name of the Dordogne area, is divided into four regions, Noir (black, from the oak forests and truffles), Vert (from the lush green landscape), Blanc (from the white limestone) and Pourpre (from the purple grapes). Hautefort lies on the border of Perigord Noir and Vert, and the area is made up of gentle hills, pastures, woods and rivers. The history of the region goes back 25,000 years, and there are many signs of prehistoric man including the world-famous Lascaux caves.

Hautefort

Cherveix-Cubas, lying on the Auvezere river and less than a kilometre down the hill, has two good restaurants, a grocery, boulangerie, boucherie, pharmacy, wine merchants and post office. Less than 5km away lies Hautefort, with its architectural gem of a 17th century chateau and gardens. Under the castle walls you will find an excellent restaurant in the village square specializing in foie gras, as well as more small shops. En route to Hautefort is a well stocked supermarket and (economically priced!) petrol station.

The area is great for walking and cycling with rolling hills, valleys and woodland. Horse riding and canoeing is nearby, and hot air balloon flights and quad biking can be arranged.

In the Auvezere valley, winding to the north, attractions include an old forge, a paper mill, and one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France, Segur le Chateau. Segur has an excellent farmer's market on Monday evenings in July and August, a lively venue where you can enjoy a barbecue run by the villagers. A little further on is Pompadour, site of the French National Stud and a beautiful race course overlooked by a chateau - a fantastic spot for a Sunday at the races... perhaps after a Sunday morning at the street market which takes over the nearby town of Objat.

The region is of course renowned for its prehistoric caves, including the world-famous Lascaux less than 30 minutes away, as well as the geological wonders at Tourtoirac, just 7km from the house, with its extensive galleries of stalactites. Other caves in the area include one which is toured by train and another by boat on an underground lake.

The A89 autoroute lies 15 minutes to the south, and provides rapid access to the west coast and the wine region of Bordeaux, and to the east to the Auvergne in the Massif Central with its majestic ancient volcanoes and ski resorts.

“Absolutely spectacular”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2016

'Mouchat' is a beautiful home, brilliantly appointed, close to everything you might need and very comfortable - we rented it for a week to spend with family celebrating an 80th and a 40th birthday party - having rented a number of places over the years I have to say that Mouchat is by far the best equipped home we've every stayed at - everything has been thought of to ensure a comfortable and worry free stay - from arrival with the comprehensive book telling us about the home and the surrounding areas to the living spaces both indoor and out that ensured everyone had sufficient space to enjoy the days and long evenings. I would highly recommend this home to rent and would certainly consider renting it again if needing a place in the area.

“Magnificent Mouchat”

Reviewed 20 May 2014

What a beautiful modern holiday home! wonderfully equipped with everything you could possibly want for a fabulous stay. Quiet and peaceful with fantastic views yet not isolated. Beautiful bathrooms and comfortable beds, in all luxury self catering! The wrap around decking means you can sit out and enjoy the sun from morning to night, with plenty of seating and some lovely sun loungers. The Euromarche is only a few miles away and there is a superb butchers in Hautefort. Mouchat is a great place to return to and relax after days out visiting Sarlat, Montignac, Brantome, Beynac etc. If you like gardens do visit D'Eyrignac and Marqueyssac both excellent. In all one of the most enjoyable holidays in years and an ideal place to re-charge your batteries.

“House at Mouchat is truly a home from home”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2013

When one ventures north of the A89 into the heart of the Perigord, it is a conscious effort to engage a degree of separation from the more heavily visited Dordogne to the south, but the combination of splendid isolation and classy modern facilities at Mouchat are a real treat. Perched atop a hill above the village of Chervaix Cubas, privacy is guaranteed by an encircling swathe of trees, yet the spectacular view from the master bedroom at the top of the property is unhindered. The adjoining field, replete with deer who visit at dinner time each night in ever increasing numbers it seems gives the property a sense of ease, a deep breath of fresh French countryside to ease both body and mind. A short stroll to the foot of the hill and pretty village of Chervaix isn't much of an exertion - the local butcher, tabac and restaurant are unashamedly Perigord to the core, but most visitors will have travelled here by car so Hautefort and it's magnificent Chateau are a mere ten minutes away. The restaurant in town is out of this world, I'll let you travel to Mouchat to get the name from the excellent information brochure compiled by the owners, as it should remain a secret to all but customers of this wonderful property. The house itself is a skilful marriage of authenticity and modernity - a beautiful wooden A-frame houses all the mod-cons Londoners like myself are accustomed to - in fact it was a hard job not to load the superb fridge freezer into the back of my car and bring it home with me. The open plan kitchen is a delight for even mere amateurs like me, and makes preparing meals sourced at the local supermarket (with quality local ingredients the like of which English people simply don't see at home ) compulsory. The master bedroom upstairs is the star of the show, but the two downstairs rooms are comfortable and spacious - the mezzanine level is a fine workspace should any budding authors fancy a fortnight to hone their tomes; a return visit is nagging away at this career scribbler I can assure you. Bathrooms are superb, well-equipped and plentiful. The garden is well-stocked with fresh herbs for us culinary enthusiasts, and the small pool enough to assuage even the most ardent conscience that you are exercising after a few glasses of the local red and a mountain of fromage. The decking encircling half the house compels dining al-fresco. All in all, an easy couple of hours from Bordeaux, Mouchat is indeed a treasure, and I will be returning, that is, if all of you out there don't beat me to the punch. Patrick Lennon Jnr, September 2013.
