The property is approached via a long lane with an attractive stone entrance and gate leading into the large stone courtyard. The grounds bordering the lane are enclosed with good quality horse fencing.

The swimming pool with sunbathing terrace and good sized pool house (which is equipped with summer kitchen, dining area and electric shutters) is set at the lower level with the recently re-surfaced tennis court discreetly set to one side of the grounds. Mainly laid to lawn, with a large selection of mature trees, shrubs and well stocked borders around the house and pool area, the property is very privately situated.
A long part covered terrace runs along the front of the property with all rooms benefitting from double glazed French doors leading out onto the terrace which overlooks the garden views. There is ample space for a large dining table and relaxing sofas on this terrace. At the end of the rear terrace a large jacuzzi is discreetly positioned overlooking the garden.
On entering via the front door the hallway gives access, via double glazed doors to the large sitting room with Fired Earth floor tiling, stone fireplace with wood burning stove and two sets of double doors to both front and back terraces.
The sitting room leads through to the immense kitchen/sitting/snug which has been beautifully equipped with Fired Earth floor tiling, bespoke hand made wall and floor units, wooden and granite work surfaces, two integral Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, two integrated fridges, sink within the large island and range style Lacanche cooker. Soft tones combine to ensure the snug - with fireplace and wood burning stove - and dining area - with integral wine rack along one wall - are an integral and relaxing part of this very spacious and comfortable entertaining room.
Full airconditioning system via ceiling vents is installed in both the sitting room and the kitchen/snug/dining room.
A hand crafted artisinal solid wood staircase leads from the dining area up to a large beamed office with sitting area and separate air-conditioning unit. Existing wi-fi point via satellite, telephone points and satellite TV points are available in several rooms.
Returning to the tiled entrance hallway, there is a large storage cupboard and useful laundry room with plumbing for washing machine, dishwasher and electric points for fridge and dryer. A good sized work surface and sink make this a very practical separate utility area in addition to the kitchen.
To the left of the hallway a long corridor leads to the bedroom wing. There are three large bedrooms with sisal carpet and double French doors leading out to the rear terrace, a fully tiled shower room with separate WC and the master ensuite bedroom with immense walk-in shower, double basins and WC. All the bedrooms have air-conditioning.

This property is based in the Dordogne (often referred to by its ancient name "The Périgord"). Although times may have changed over the years the beautiful Dordogne landscape, in one of the most beautiful areas of France, continues to offer something to amaze and delight everyone. This ancient land, deep in the heart of sunny south-west France, is perfect holiday country; a magical place that will reward all those who choose to explore it.
The Périgord Noir where the vast majority of our properties are located, is the 'Jewel in the Crown' of the Dordogne for here, in the triangle formed between the rivers Vézère and Dordogne, you will find the greatest concentration of natural wonders and historic sites, and the loveliest stretches of both rivers. The area is bounded by four famous towns and this property is well situated within this boundary - Sarlat, a medieval treasure house; Périgueux, a thriving and sophisticated small city; Bergerac, shippers of wine since the Middle ages and Monpazier, an extraordinarily well preserved bastide built by King Edward I in 1285.
Only 5km from the market town of Le Bugue with all amenities. Less then 1 hour from Bergerac airport, 1.5 hours from Brive airport, 2.5 hours from Bordeaux airport/TGV station and 2.5 hours from Toulouse airport.
