About the property

Studio 50m ² in a small hamlet in the countryside.

Completely renovated and newly equipped in 2013, this studio has lovely south-facing views over a courtyard towards the hillsides opposite. At the end of a no-through lane, it is in a peaceful hamlet setting. The owners (who both work) are on hand in the old farmhouse and are happy to advise and assist if required.

The studio is entirely independent with its own sitting out area, guests are also welcome to use the gardens and grounds (2 hectares). The view is panoramic and has inspired photographers and artists alike as the light and colours change throughout the day and seasons.

The studio comprises a small entrance, a shower-room (large shower, vanity unit, WC, heated towel rail). The large main room (40m²) has a fitted kitchen area with garden door, living/dining area. The bedroom area has a king-size bed (180cm which can be separated to make two single beds, if preferred).

For cooler evenings, there is a wood-pellet burning stove, simple to operate.

This is a perfect spot for doing absolutely nothing, on a chaise longue with a book and a pair of binoculars to admire the remarkable birdlife. There are woodland walks on the doorstep if a little activity is called for.

For sight-seeing purposes, it is strategically located in the centre of the Dordogne. Motorway access at 15 minutes makes Bordeaux centre reachable in about 1h15.

Périgueux, the county town is a 20 minute run and full of interest with its roman ruins (arena, villa-museum) and superbly renovated renaissance quarter. The celebrated mime festival (“Mimos”) takes place annually in August, as does the New Orleans Jazz festival (“MNOP”), in addition you can enjoy the (free) jazz concerts held in the various squares in the old town (“Macadam Jazz”).

The “Bandas” festival in St Astier (July) is worth a mention as thousands flock to hear a number of brass bands as they parade and play in the streets.

Bergerac airport is 30 minutes away. Brantôme, Les Eyzies and Le Bugue are 35 minutes away, Sarlat 1hr.

Beautiful Studio with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 days at this extremely well equipped studio on the side of a hill with extensive views of the countryside. You are a few miles away from a large supermarket to stock up on your essentials and then you are ready for what ever the area holds for you. Tracey the owner is very approachable and the perfect host, available for advice if you need it. There are many interesting and pretty little towns and villages in the area. Or you could just drink wine, relax in the sunshine and enjoy your beautiful surroundings. Looking forward to our return visit in the near future.

Wonderful , relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 days in this wonderful studio apartment in late March this year. It quite a comfortable , large apartment with great views. I think we were told it had been a barn. The pellet stove keeps the apartment very comfortable in cold weather and my wife commented how well stocked the kitchen is. It certainly is in a great location to visit the wonders of Dordogne!

Äußerst empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei sehr schöne Wochen im Périgord verbracht und dazu hat diese Ferienwohnung einiges beigetragen! In Stichpunkten:

- Die Vermieter sprechen Französisch und Englisch. Beide hatte sehr viel Geduld mit unseren beschränkten Französischkenntnissen. Die Begrüßung war sehr herzlich. Eine Einladung zum "Apéritif" haben wir gerne angenommen und einen kurzweiligen Abend mit den Beiden verbracht. Ansonsten hatte man seine Ruhe, wenn man es wollte.

- Das Gelände ist toll. Man hat vor der Wohnung einen großen Platz, auf dem man mindestens vier Autos unterbringen könnte. Tisch, Stühle und Liegen können aufgestellt werden, wo man gerade will. Auch besteht die Möglichkeit, bei Regen unter einem Dach Zuflucht zu finden.

- Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr gut isoliert. Wir hatten viele Tage mit Temperaturen weit über 30 Grad und freuten uns, wenn wir von Ausflügen in die kühle Wohnung konnten. Die Ausstattung lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig.

- Im Périgord gibt es so viele Sehenswürdigkeiten, dass man gar nicht weiß, wo man anfangen soll. Uns hat besonders die Höhle von Padirac gefallen. Auch die Kanufahrt auf der Vézère hat viel Spaß gemacht. Zum Speisen können wir das

Restaurant La Taula (www.restaurantlataula.com) empfehlen. Wir haben dort

dreimal sehr gut gegessen. Man findet es an dem kleinen Parkplatz an der

Cathédrale Saint-Front.

Klares Urteil: sehr gut! Wir werden sicherlich in den nächsten Jahren wieder kommen!

Vue Grandiose Calme et Apaisante

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une bonne semaine avec une vue grandiose dans un endroit très calme et apaisant, idéal pour se ressourcer et près de beaucoup de sites à visiter. Nous avons même pu prendre un bol d'air iodé à l'océan ! Le studio est conforme aux photos, neuf, très propre avec tout le confort et un petit quelque chose en plus... dû à Tracey, la propriétaire, très discrète, avenante, et désirant que nous ne manquions de rien. C'est une propriétaire généreuse ! Je n'oublie pas de parler de la gastronomie des environs... Nous recommandons cette location sans hésiter.

In the heart of the Dordogne, the four Périgords are within easy reach. A visit would not be complete without taking in the vineyards around Bergerac, the valleys of the Isle, the Auvezère, the Vézère and of course the Dordogne river valley itself. In addition to the festivals and 'fêtes locales', the traditional farmers' markets are still very much part of the local lifestyle: an inexhaustible source of inspiration and at the very least, a feast for the eyes !
