General Description

Set in an enviable position in the heart of a lush Perigord Noir forest, this is a stunning country villa with heated pool overlooking the Dordogne river and its enchanting valley.

This family-friendly villa also boasts table tennis and a boules pitch; all this just a short walk from the Cingle de Montfort, a local beauty spot and natural loop on the river Dordogne and the village of Montfort, with 3 restaurants and a bakery. Canoes can be hired from Carsac Aillac, a 10 minute drive away, which also has great amenities. The charm of this self-catered property lies in both its fairy tale natural setting and the timeless country elegance of its décor. The magic begins as you spot the honey-coloured stonework and the pale blue shutters hidden among the foliage and continues as you make yourself at home in this typically French house. The spectacular panorama of undulating wooded hills and gentle sloping valleys provides a perfect backdrop to breakfasts and dinners al-fresco as the sun rises and sets over the river Dordogne.
