Property type farmhouse

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Situated 12Km N of Bergerac in a tranquil location on the edge of a typical, pretty Dordogne village, this 19th Century farmhouse has recently undergone a total renovation combining modern facilities with striking original features retaining the charm and rustic character of the old building. There is a good sized private pool close to the house with a overlooking deck allowing convenient supervision. The courtyard is the focus for summer outdoor living and is a totally enclosed spacious area with open outbuildings providing a covered outdoor dining area. A deck leads down from the house and there is plenty of sunny patio space around the pool. The large garden has walnuts, cherries, peaches & plums - help yourself! St Julien is adjacent to Bergerac's quality Pecharment wine region and within an hour of famous Bordeaux vineyards, including St Emilion. There are bikes in the barn and a few shops & restaurants are within cycling distance. There is a very good equine centre nearby, with golf, fishing and canoeing in the local. The house is equipped with good Wi-Fi and satellite TV.

The house is old and the staircase to the 2 upstairs bedrooms, the twin and a double, although safe and with a handrail, is quite steep and may be a little daunting to the elderly or infirm. There is a downstairs master bedroom as well as a sofabed in the living room. The fridge in the kitchen is standard size under worktop with ice box. A second 'drinks fridge' is also available in the garage.

Impressive location and house.

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant holiday. The garden area is superb. Shade or sun all day. Locals are nice people and very helpful. We've been staying in houses in Europe for at least 30 years this was one of the best we've had. My only complaint is that we stayed for only 7days.

Beautiful farmhouse in a quiet rural location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks in this charming house. The kitchen is fantastic especially if you enjoy cooking the local produce, and the pool is a lovely size and so refreshing on a warm day. There are loads of shady spots around the garden and a couple of places to eat, either on the deck over looking the pool or in the shady covered area at the rear of the garden. The house itself is lovely, although the stairs as mentioned are quite steep and my elderly Dad decided to sleep on the very comfortable sofa bed so he could be near the bathroom at night. We enjoyed days out visiting local wineries, kayaking on the river Vezere and exploring Bergerac. The restaurants in nearby Campsegret are worth a mention - Le Chat Perche for a cheap lunch or great pizza and La Terrasse for a fantastic evening meal. This is a lovely place to stay, I enjoyed watching the bees and hummingbird moths on the lavender and the the bats swooping over the pool in the evening! I should mention the church bells - you do get used to them after a few days, even the 7am wake up ones! Highly recommended.

Lovely traditional house

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house to stay in. Full of character and comfortable and peaceful with excellent swimming pool and loads of space in the garden to relax and eat al fresco. The kitchen area especially was spacious and very attractive with plenty of equipment for cooking. The surrounding countryside was stunning for walks and the feeling of being completely away from the rat race was wonderful. The owners were extremely helpful and pleasant to communicate with.

Relaxing, full of character house in a quaint little village

  • 5 of 5

Love this house! Superbly situated for Bergerac airport and sorties into beautiful little villages and wine tasting chateaux. Everyone really friendly and helpful and the house itself is a wonderful sun trap - mornings at the front and afternoons by the pool.

I thoroughly recommend a visit!

Lovely spacious house in very quiet village 10 minutes to Bergerac and shops

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in the most peaceful village you could imagine, the pool is great and the house has plenty of room and is like home from home. Bergerac town is a short drive for any supplies and a walk round the shops. There are numerous canoeing , walking, cycling places locally and the neighbours are also lovely. We would come back again.

We had a very relaxing week so much so we slept through the bells most mornings! The pool is a great size and the house remained beautifully cool on the hot afternoons! Dimitri was good company too! Thank you for sharing!

The local area is rich in gastronomic delights: pate, fois-gras, cheese, bread and, of course, wine to name but a few. The delightful market town of Bergerac with the river Dordogne winding lazily through it, is situated about 12km to the south while about 35km north lies the ancient cathedral city of Perigueux. Both are worth exploring, Bergerac market days are Wed and Sat. Local activities include horse riding at an impressive equestrian centre 4km from the house, canoeing on the Dordogne, cycling, fishing and golf. There are numerous leafy walks around the village. Many of the numerous chateaux along the banks of the Dordogne are open to the public as are the huge caves and grottos in the area.

St Julien de Crempse (the Crempse being the local river) is clearly signposted 4km west of Campsegret off the main Bergerac-Perigueux road. Keys are held by the friendly and informative Mr Dimitri Buchen who speaks English and lives in the presbytery behind the farmhouse.
