About the property

tranquillity, discretion, comfort and quality services



Once nestled in the heart of rich vineyards, La Poujade, one of the largest chartreuses in the Dordogne, lies on the high slopes of the Black Perigord, at 20 minutes from Sarlat, 30 from Bergerac and Perigueux.

The main building hosts the home while the wings contain stables, the orangery and cellars.

Inside, La Poujade retains its character thanks to quite exceptional arches, pilasters, columns, door frames, majestic Louis XIV fireplaces; all these elements create a both intimate and mysterious atmosphere.



A large hall, paved with 17th-century terracotta tiles, serves all the vaulted rooms on the ground floor. The vast kitchen (42sqm, with beautiful stone fireplace, back kitchen, professional cooker), is perfectly suited to cooking for large families by either the housewife or a Chef.

The dining room (46sqm plus backroom), offers a beautiful stone fireplace, and can accommodate the whole family around the big "hunting scene" table.

The blue vaulted lounge (70sqm), with its crystal chandeliers, offers a beautiful acoustic for music lovers and musicians. A fully equipped laundry is also available. A plancha is put at your disposal.



Sleeps: 14 adults or kids + 1 baby under 2. Baby cot available upon simple request.

On the ground floor are 3 double bedrooms:

* Greenwell Room (34sqm) with its canopy double bed (150x200), bathroom en-suite with WC

* Louis XIV bedroom (28sqm) with one canopy double bed of 175x210, bathroom en-suite with WC

* Prince Henry bedroom (32sqm) with 150x200 bed, bathroom en-suite with WC. The ground floor is also equipped with 2 separate WCs.

Upstairs: at both ends of the grand corridor, stairs lead on one side to

* the Maire bedroom (40sqm) with its bay window opening onto the valley of the Dordogne, and a double bed (150x200)

* Empire bedroom (20m ²) with 2 single beds (120x190)

on the floor : bathroom and WC.

On the other side, the stairs lead to :

* a Restauration room with one double bed (180x210), lemon-wood furniture, bathroom and WC, door leading to the landing

* two small "Bambou" rooms, with one single bed (120x195) and "colonnettes" single bed (110x190).



The current park was planted in 1896 by Lord Greenwell and his wife Emma Maire, great-grandparents of the current owner. Eight magnificent cedars open a beautiful view to the courtyard. A large balustrade crowns the East terrace and its 300-year old climbing vine. Another large terrace planted with amazing trees (including a 300-year old chestnut tree), dominates the valley of the Dordogne. The meadows surrounding La Poujade helps it to retain some rural character.



* The terrace overlooking the Dordogne was chosen to host a new built pool (12x6,5 meters - salt filtre - electric cover and pool alarm) with a large paved decking. It is equiped with sunbeds and parasols

* A game room with TV - DVD leads to the Orangerie with table tennis, and to the old chapel converted into a fitness room.

* TV, DVD, and satellite await you in the living room. Speed internet access or wireless connection are both available.
