A truly special Dordogne farmhouse surrounded by nature, set in ten acres of garden, orchard, meadow and woodland.

Situated at the top of a hill, the house offers complete privacy and tranquility and a modern pool with views across the valley.

Enjoy stylish interiors; a huge kitchen for gastronomic adventures; log-burning stove; piano; good books and games; fast wifi.

45 mins from Limoges airport; 25 mins from picturesque Brantome; 10 mins to local market town; 5 mins to village with shop.

The space
An ancient, charming farmhouse with high ceilings, generous rooms and enormous fireplaces. Stylishly renovated and furnished with love from local brocantes to create a harmonious combination of nature and interior design.

The large, recently installed pool has beautiful views over the valley and an ample patio for sun-bathing and relaxing. An automatic security cover makes the pool safe for children and avoids heat loss; turn a key and the pool is closed in less than two minutes. The salt-water system is much gentler on the eyes and skin than traditional chlorine.

Admire the scenery from the hammock while the kids play on the swings, walk through the woods to picnic and paddle in the river, or enjoy fruit picking in the orchard (plums, apples, pears, walnuts) or search for ceps in the woods.

Feel free to play music - there are no neighbours to disturb, except for deer, barn owls, bats, buzzards and the elusive wild boar.

In the cooler months, enjoy central heating with underfloor heating in the main rooms, plus a huge log-burning stove in the sitting room and an open fire in the kitchen. Wood included.

The house easily accommodates two to three families. There's a double sofabed (in bedroom one), plus bedrolls and sleeping bags for extra kids. Two rooms have en-suites.

Other things to note
Two of the bedrooms are at the top of an ancient and steep staircase. These rooms might not suit older travellers and care is needed with young children.
