Further details indoors

Walking from the large entry foyer into the great room, one is struck by the massive ancient stone walls that set the tone through out the entire house. The walls are all over1 metre thick and insulate out the heat in summer and hold it in winter.In the main ground floor great room. (22'x 30'x 25'), there is a floor to ceiling wood burning stone fireplace (opening measures 5'x7'), built from original stones recuperated from areas that now contain large windows on the north side of the house.Continuing through the great room to the west end of the house, one arrives at a large, eat- in cook's kitchen (17 x 22'). Fashioned with counters (approx 20 feet of counter workspace) constructed from the manger walls, the kitchen includes a 6 burner gas convection stove/oven, a large farm sink, American sized refrigerator / freezer and dishwater, There is an antique table that will seat 12 easily for special feasts.French doors flood the kitchen with light all day, and open to the south and west facing stone terrace. Perfect for dining outdoors, the terrace overlooks the private 13 acre valley. To sit under the walnut tree and sip a glass of wine while enjoying an incredible late night sunset, painting the clear blue sky and clouds… aah, a truly incomparable treat beyond comprehension! The two hay loft bedrooms, one facing east and the other west, at opposite ends of the house, are reached by individual stair cases, which open to the main great room. These two large en suite bedrooms, one with walk in shower and one with shower/tub combination, allow for maximum privacy for couples travelling together. There are stone floors through out the downstairs of the house, and custom laid chestnut flooring in both hay loft bedrooms. Antique armoires, antiques and simple comfortable furnishings, will make your stay a memorable, relaxed one.The property is surrounded by open countryside and breathtaking views of fields and woods. There are fruit trees on the property, with bounty, just ripe for the taking. And marked French randonee (walking) trails, just outside the door. Two towns are within easy reach by car or by bicycle. Both are stellar rides, along the river either by car or bicycle. In fact, in the fall, one can often encounter the Butterfield and Robinson or Back Roads cyclists enjoying the view.St. Julien de Lampon is about 7 minutes by car, where there is a Thursday market, a bakery, butcher, pharmacy, post office. bank and small grocery store. Souillac, with a variety of grocery stores, bakeries, as well as a great Friday market, offers more choice and can supply you with anything you need. It is 12 minutes away. There are other larger (Souillac size) towns in the surrounding areas, each with its own market, restaurants, etc. They include Martel, Gourdon, Brive la Gaillarde and Sarlat, each about 25 minutes from the house. Souillac has a golf club and it is available to the public, including a lovely pool. Bicycle rental is available in Souillac, as is horseback riding. Cars can be rented in Brive, across from the train station. There are amazing things to do and see in the area, known as the Perigord Noir.Hiking, biking, canoeing, antiquing, markets, cooking, horseback riding, golf, not to mention visiting historic sites, gorgeous gardens, and wonderful restaurants, all await and are there for the asking. The beautiful Dordogne countryside beckons.

Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

The region is not only beautiful and a perfect place for an active holiday of walking, cycling, fishing, golfing or touring, there are many many wonderful things to see, including special towns such as Sarlat,St Cirq, markets, gardens, chateaux, canoeing on the Dordogne- it is endless! The climate is lovely almost all year long, and many times in winter, one can be outside in a jumper during the day. Consult the many available guidebooks such as the Rough Guide, or the Michelin Green guide for particulars. And I failed to mention the wonderful local food- many great restaurants within a very easy drive, and the local wine is terrific as well.

Saint Julien de Lampon

Chateau Beynac, Jardin Marqueyssac, Domme, Sarlat, Markets almost every day of the week- the list goes on and on. Consult a good guide book to help you plan your special holiday excursions. The house is a 8 minute walk to the Dordogne River and from there you can bicycle to Sarlat or Souillac- there are paths in each direction. St. Julien de Lampon and Souillac are within 10 minutes and can supply you with all you need.

“A charming, gorgeous house in a wonderful part of France”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2011

My wife and I enjoyed a totally relaxing and inspiring stay at La Grange last fall. It is a beautifully renovated stone barn, converted into a lovely house with two bedrooms (each with modern private bath), spacious living area, eat-in country kitchen, and a charming patio overlooking a peaceful valley. Located in a very quiet hamlet on a hillside above the Dordogne River, it's just a short drive to restaurants, neighboring towns (including Sarlat), chateaux along the river, and the famous caves with their prehistoric paintings. But it's also far enough from the tourist crowds to make you feel you truly are on holiday. In fact, we enjoyed spending a day simply lounging on the patio, the only interruption being the sound of sheep from across the valley.
