General Description

Rarely do so many qualities come together so beautifully to create the perfect romantic bolthole.

The property was once the workplace of a local carpenter who created beautiful wooden masterpieces in this adorable cottage made from local stone, which has been in the family for four generations. His daughter has lovingly restored the workshop, turning it into a charming home perfect for a couple seeking privacy and an ideal location in the Périgord Noir. It's comfortable and elegant and the outdoor Jacuzzi on the large sun terrace is a real bonus.

Sits in an ancient hamlet only five kilometres from the medieval market town of Sarlat, next to the Vallée des Châteaux, acclaimed beautiful villages and all the other wonderful sites and attractions this desirable region has to offer. Just three kilometres away is the classified site of Marqueyssac, the most visited garden in Périgord, and Castelnau, Beynac and Château Les Milandes are all under five kilometres away.

This is a coming together of a family, their story, style and all that is special in this beautiful part of France. The local carpenter would be very happy…

Local Area / Activities

The property sits in an ancient hamlet only five kilometres from the historical and pretty market town of Sarlat.

Sarlat has been known for its markets since the middle ages, they take place every Saturday and Wednesday mornings plus there is a night market every Thursday evening in the summer months and even a truffle and Foie Gras market in the winter. Visitors in the height of the summer may enjoy the spontaneous street theatre that fill the characterful lanes in the evening as well as the gourmet dining experiences on offer in the town and surrounding area.

The Perigord Noir area of Dordogne is much loved by visitors due to the beautiful natural landscapes, excellent regional cuisine, mild climate, enchanting castles and charming villages of old stone houses and cobbled lanes.

The village of Beynac (4km) is known as one of the most beautiful villages in this area with its stunning twelfth century castle on the banks of the Dordogne river. Other noteworthy villages include Domme, Castelnaud, Saint-Amand-de Loly, Saint-Leon-sur-Vezere and Belves, all within thirty minutes drive or less.

Nature lovers must visit Les Jardins de Marqueyssac (3km), delightful and beautifully manicured gardens set high above the river with pretty views over nearby villages. In July and August you can avoid the summer heat by visiting them 'by candlelight' once a week for a truly memorable experience. Combine this with a visit to the enchanting nearby village of La Roque Gageac on the north bank of the Dordogne river. The idyllic village has a rich history and very little has changed other than the unusual but beautiful tropical plants that have been planted around the village and thrive in the mild climate.

The Dordogne is well known for its hundreds of castles and chateaux, many of which are open to the public and within a very short distance. Chateau de Castelnaud and Chateau Les Milandes are both within five kilometres with many more a short distance further.

The whole region is a true heaven for nature and sport lovers alike offering a wide array of outdoor activities, from horse-back riding, to tennis, mountain-biking, golfing and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities in the area. Children will love the nearby waterparks, exploring prehistoric caves, re-enacting history in one of the castles or even a magnificent hot air balloon ride across the stunning region.
