Chez Vignaud is a lovingly converted 4 bedroom farmhouse with lots of rural French charm, plenty of space and all modern comforts. It is the perfect choice for family holidays, friends sharing or couples wanting to get away from it all. The house is less than 10 minutes from Ribérac with its famous weekly market and wide range of shops, restaurants, sports and cultural facilities.
The farmhouse has been converted to retain many original character features such as solid timber beams, open fireplaces and the thick stone walls that keep it beautifully cool indoors when the weather heats up outside. The private sunny garden has a shady eating area and wide unspoiled views of the lovely Dordogne countryside.
The large lounge has the original ceiling beams, thick stone walls and French doors to the garden. Generous sofas, TV (main English satellite channels) and DVD player. The second smaller living room has a sofa, writing table and chair, radio/CD/MP3 player and piano.
The spacious farmhouse kitchen has a large table seating 8, double oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave. The stable door opens onto the garden. The adjoining utility room has a washing machine, large fridge, separate freezer, ironing board and iron.
Bedroom 1 has a large king size bed; Bedroom 2 has a four-poster double bed. Bedroom 3 has a double bed and en suite shower room. Bedroom 4 opens off Bedroom 1 and has two single beds, and is thus ideal for children.
The family bathroom has jacuzzi bath, separate shower, wc, and washbasin.
The garden is entirely private. It is flat and on two levels separated by 4 stone steps. The garden faces southwest and enjoys sunshine all day long, with a shady eating area under the old lime tree which is perfect for enjoying the view at any time of day. Garden furniture and a barbecue are provided.
A path leads from the garden downhill to a 'wilderness' area with a trampoline that is always popular with younger visitors.
The price includes bath and hand towels and freshly laundered bed linen. The house is fully cleaned before each arrival, and also weekly during longer stays if desired.
Delicious freshly prepared meals can be delivered by request.
