Description from owner

In its bucolic setting, Gaurenne is a three hundred year old farm of special charm. The house is one of three buildings arranged around a courtyard in the traditional manner of French farms and is a fine example of rural Perigordine architecture. The buildings are constructed of the golden limestone which is typical of the region and have steeply pitched "lauze" roofs made of stone slabs, giving the farm fairytale quality.

Climbing roses, jasmine and lavander fill the courtyard with fragrance, and the herb garden by the door is intended for your use.

The house has been restored in a way that respects its original rustic character while adding modern conveniences for comfort. The interior has many walls of exposed stone, beamed ceilings throughout, and floors of the honey colored local stone (downstairs) and of local chestnut (upstairs). Furnishings include antiques and French fabrics.

The Dordogne region

Located in Southwestern France, the Dordogne is a region of gentle beauty, renown for its fine cuisine, medieval villages, proud chateaux, and extraordinary examples of prehistoric cave art. Owing to the unique combination of abundant fish and game and of cliffs rising up from the valleys providing safe dwellings in myriad caves and grottos, more traces of man’s presence thousands of years ago have been found here than anywhere else in France.

Gaurenne is situated in the part of the Dordogne known as the Perigord Noir, which offers a lush landscape threaded with meandering rivers and dotted with charming villages. Dense forests alternate with rolling meadows and fields. Although there are towns and sites which attract visitors in summer months, this is a region which is primarily agricultural, with a quiet, unspoiled countryside where the traditional way of life is still very much in evidence.

Nonetheless, you will not lack for activities to fill your days. There are extensive hiking trails, canoe trips on the Dordogne or Vezere rivers, horseback riding, swimming, and tennis, all nearby. There are also numerous chateaux to visit (Beynac and Castelnaud are not to be missed) as well as odd sites like the ruined Chateau de Commarque and the Cabanes de Breuil (an unusual cluster of ancient, round stone dwellings of unknown origin). The region’s wealth of prehistoric sites is close at hand. The Lascaux caves, Font-de-Gaume, the National Museum of Pre-history at Les Eyzies-de-Tayac, and the Abri de Cap Blanc with its carved horses provide a memorable experience. Local outdoor markets offer regional produce and products, with that of Sarlat being one of the most colorful in France. A listing of suggested outings, restaurants, and market days is provided to help visitors make full use of their stay.

Sarlat-la-Canéda

Sarlat is a jewel of town, and one of the first in France to be preserved before it was too late. You will find wonderful architecture, narrow winding streets, many restaurants and outdoor cafes, and music, theatre and a film festival at various points in the year. People come from afar to enjoy the large outdoor market on Saturdays (a smaller one on Wednesdays) that snakes through the medieval streets.

Summer months are filled with local concerts, festivals and flea markets which can lead you to various interesting villages and towns. A listing of these is found at the Office de Tourisme in Sarlat as well as in the house.
