General Description

This site with breathtaking views has been a farm since 1903 and has recently become the much-loved home of two women in love with nature and the sheer beauty of this location.

On top of a hill facing Bergerac, the estate has three hills which offer different views of the town. Up here it's all about silence, calm and retreat, but fabulous Bergerac is only a 5-minute drive away, so good restaurants, bars, shops and river sunsets are just a stone's throw away.

The hostesses, keen to share their special idyll, have transformed an attached, independent and private cottage for guests and added a lovely heated pool for their exclusive use.

The hilly grounds of 12 hectares are vast and surrounded by fields, forest, lawns and fruit trees. Children have plenty of space to run around, but there is also table-football, a trampoline and two adult bikes are available. The kids will love the Shetland ponies, chickens and pigeons which the owners feed every day. Around the estate there is a hiking path in the surrounding forest.

Inside, the spacious cottage is comfortable, well-equipped and cozy. The fireplace makes it ideal at all times of the year.

The property provides the perfect escape to a rural setting, yet near a famous town in the spectacular Dordogne, which is full of châteaux, vineyards and wineries, fine restaurants and historical sites.
