Décoration design, de très bon goût, cuisine parfaitement équipée, salle de bain magnifique.
Jolie piscine dans le village, cour de tennis.

Seul tout petit bémol : maison non adaptée aux jeunes enfants de moins de 4 ans (jardin non clos et escalier sans rambarde)
Nous avons passé dans cette maison de merveilleuses vacances, reposantes et ressourçantes.
Superbe séjour dans cette maison au grand calme, très bien équipée, très agréable ! Restauration de la maison très bien réalisée : elle respecte le charme de l'ancien avec des volumes et du mobilier dignes d'un loft en plein downtown.
C'est un endroit idéal pour se ressourcer et prendre le temps de vivre.
La grande piscine extérieure chauffée à 28 degrés avec bassin de 25 mètres, où se côtoient nageurs et familles (une ligne sportive, le reste pour barboter et jouer) se situe à 5 minutes à pieds, j'ai pu aller y faire mes longueurs tous les jours : le pied !
Manque dans la salle de bains une poubelle et un endroit pour poser les nécessaires de toilettes (crèmes...). Dans la cuisine, un peu plus de vaisselle permettrait de faire tourner le lave-vaisselle moins souvent. Pour le reste, tout est de haut standing, qualité 3 etoiles voire 4.
Et attention à l'escalier qui ne convient pas à de jeunes enfants car pas de garde-corps d'un côté.
À essayer et à refaire !!
An ideal house to relax and un-stress. Surrounded by hilly pastures and near the Gorges de la Dordogne, one can enjoy the calmness of the environment. The house itself, is well equipped with all the modern audio/video devices you need to relax and to be creative in the kitchen. The openness towards the neighbourhood gives you on the one hand the experience of space on the other hand a little more shelter by means of a hedge towards the road would make us feel a little more comfortable enjoying for instance a nice meal outside.
Overall we felt very much at home in this wonderful holiday house!

We stayed for a week over Easter with children aged 10 & 13. The house was as lovely as it looks on the website but we had under estimated quite how remote Bassignac Le Haut would be (15 mins by car from nearest shop, 30 mins from nearest town). However, after 24 hours to slow down to a more sedate pace of life, we realised to joy of this. It was wonderful to be in a part of France not overrun by tourists, where the roads were empty, the air fresh. There was plenty to do, canoeing down the dordogne, fishing, tennis on the courts in the village. Lots of great places for lunch and supper - you just had to plan to drive to get to any of them (tennis courts excepted). Would definitely return - especially if the weather was guaranteed to always be that good!
We stayed in this house for a week, my husband and I and our two children. We had a wonderful time. The house itself is beautifully renovated to the highest standard. Everything you need is at your fingertips. The kitchen is furnished with all the most up to date modern conveniences. The bedrooms are very sizeable and very nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. The House is surrounded by beautiful farmland. It is peaceful, but the town of St. Privat is up the road if you want to go shopping or have lunch. It is an agricultural area predominantly so the food on offer is quite delicious! There are other very quaint French villages around that are worth visiting too. We enjoyed visiting some and doing some antique shopping. We also went on some stunning walks and hikes overlooking the Dordogne. This is also a great spot to go cycling as there is so much to see in terms of countryside, mountains and lakes. We enjoyed it to the full and plan to return in the Summer. It is a great holiday destination. I would highly recommend it.
The public outdoor pool and tennis court are 5 minutes walk from the house. Golf, bike rental, canoeing, white water rafting, rock climbing, horse riding, museums, caves, restaurants are all nearby.
