About the property

Chateau / Country House, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5 Baths, (Sleeps

In the heart of Perigord, the manor des Lespine, built in the 16th century, is situated in the middle of a 50 acres property along the Vern River. Its half timbered well, the dovecote, the traditional bread oven and the pool hidden behind a curtain of greenery will delight those who are looking for a charming vacation rental in Dordogne in an authentic and peaceful environment. The inside entirely renovated is decorated with refinement and combines the respect of local architecture and furniture with modern comfort. The quietness and the magic of the site create perfect conditions for unforgettable vacation in Perigord.

The pool (12m long, 6m wide / 40 ft long, 20 ft wide) is heated with a heat pump. The temperature is permanently adjusted at 28°C (82 °F).

The renovation of the inside has given the manor its original inner arrangement. The ochre painted beams, the cherry tree period furniture, the oak wood and terracotta floors create a warm and cosy atmosphere. The 3 feet thick walls of the house constitute a so good thermal insulation that when it’s very hot outside, it’s always cool inside. The house is equipped with a central heating system and there is a fireplace in every room of the first floor. The manor is fully equipped with modern amenities: oven, microwave oven, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, satellite TV, a 50’’ plasma screen, tuner, K7 player, DVD player, collection of DVDs, wifi internet access, …

The accommodation capacity of the manor ranges from 12 to 14 persons according to the composition of the party. 8 beds are distributed in 6 bedrooms and a mezzanine as follows:

- the parents’ bedroom at 2nd floor: queen size bed (1,60m wide) with private bathroom,

- the Mamy’s bedroom at 2nd floor: double bed (1,40m wide) with private bathroom,

- the Louis' bedroom at 2nd floor: double bed (1,40m wide) with private bathroom,

- the Sarah’s bedroom at 3rd floor: double bed (1,40m wide) with private bathroom,

- the Marion’s bedroom at first floor: double bed (1,40m wide) with private bathroom,

- the kids’ bedroom at 3rd floor: a single bed (0,9m wide) and an extra large single bed (1,10m wide),

- the mezzanine at 3rd floor: a single bed (0,90m wide).

Additional beds including a baby bed can be provided on request.

There is also a bathroom (with shower and toilet) in the laundry at first floor.

The property is partly covered by a mixed forest of cedar trees, cherry trees, oaks and ash trees. The other part is a meadow in which 3 horses graze. On each side of the valley, a huge wooded plateau is crossed by many paths ideal for trekking, biking or horse riding. Within the property you can idle about, enjoy the pool, bath or fish in the Vern River and even ride (if horses are required).

In the surroundings, the medieval village of Grignols (2 km of the house), the picturesque Saint Astier market (8 km of the house) and Perigueux downtown (remarkably renovated) are worth seeing. Visit also Brantôme, the “Venice of Perigord” in the Dronne valley and of course the famous Vezere and Dordogne valleys. Don’t forget either the vineyards of Montabazillac and Saint Emilion where you’ll be able to test your capacity to recognize the fragrance of the wine. Those who like prehistoric sites will be delighted in Les Eysies, Lascaux and Rouffignac areas: caves, open sites, museums, .... The region is also rich in medieval castles open to the public. Finally of course, the Perigord gastronomic restaurants are waiting for your visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Met veel plezier denk ik terug aan onze laatste vakantie. Met 3 gezinnen hebben we een geweldige vakantie in de Dordogne gehad. Het huis was mooier en groter dan verwacht. Vooral de inrichting verrast je in elke kamer (en het zijn er veel). Wat fijn dat zo'n stijlvol landhuis groot genoeg is voor meerdere gezinnen. De tuin is een enorme aanvulling. In de zon of onder de 'veranda' genoten we elke avond van de prachtige tuin met uitzicht op de paardjes onder het genot van een goed glas wijn.”



“I remember our last holiday with a great pleasure. With three families, we have had a great holiday in the Dordogne. The house is beautiful and larger than expected. Especially the interior will surprise you in every room (and there are many). How wonderful that such a stylish country house is big enough for several families. The garden is a great addition. In the sun or under the "porch" every night we enjoyed the beautiful gardens overlooking the horses while enjoying a glass of wine.”

Beautiful, peaceful home. Plenty of space, lovely gardens and a great pool.

  • 5 of 5

This is a genuine home, old, beautiful and full of character. There is plenty of space both indoors and outside, and plenty of places for a large group to eat, inside and out. The covered terrace was a particular favourite place for us to eat. The pool is large and was set at an ideal temperature - the weather was very hot while we were there so the pool heating wasn't needed much but it kept it perfect for us. We made very good use of the table tennis and the table football as well as the pool and the gardens. There are no immediate neighbours so the location is very peaceful and the views over the countryside are lovely. The property is about 7 minutes outside of the nearest village - Neuvic - and about 25 minutes from the nearest large town, Perigueux. There is a good sized supermarket also around 5 minutes drive away. Jean-Louis, the owner, is very friendly and welcoming. Even though we were late arriving he waited for us and showed us how everything worked and was available during our stay if we needed him. Everything worked as it should. This is an authentic, beautiful French country house in a lovely rural setting but with amenities nearby. Truly wonderful.

Manoir de Lespines, was een echte verrassing!!

Als u zoekt voor een echte originele boerderij in het hart van de Dordogne,

is dit huis ideaal.

Deze boerderij van omstreeks 1500 is in een perfecte positie , 3.5 km van het

dorpje Neuvic, met een uitstekende franse bakker ,een traditionele slager en

een lokale markt, en ideaal voor dagtochtjes naar Sarlat - Perigeaux -

Bordeaux etc etc .

De omgeving bestaat uit kleine boerderijtjes een droom voor fiets tochten.

Het huis is met smaak en liefde ingericht, het heeft prachtige decoratie en

karakter volle meubelen.

Het huis is ideaal voor grote groepen ,het heeft een gezellig terras , grote

tuin en zwembad.

Ik kan dit huis beslist aanbevelen, we hebben een onvoorstelbaar gezellige

vakantie gehad, met onze familie uit Nederland.

Well located country manor

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in October at this beautiful manor house. The property is large and all the rooms are very comfortable. We celebrated my wife's 60th birthday and the property was ideal for this outdoor event. Unfortunately it was too cool at the end of October to swim in the beautiful pool, but we would love to return in warmer weather.

Great French Country experience...

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends recently spent a magical week (in september) at this lovely old manor home in the Dordogne region. We really wish we had booked the place for two weeks...one week was not enough to take full advantage of the location and the home. The manor is much more gorgeous and spacious than the on line pictures fully represent, with tons of character, a lovely swimming pool, horses on the property, fruit trees, a creek, etc. We had the quintessential French country experience here, we even made some pies from the fresh fruit off the trees. Highly recommended for a very memorable week - I can assure you, you will not be disappointed.

Twee fantastische weken.

  • 5 of 5

Twee weken in "Le Manoir des Lespine" .

Van 26 juli t/m 3 augustus 2014 hebben wij, een kleine woongroep, onze vakantie doorgebracht in de "Manoir des Lespine". Kramer's woordenboek vertaald Manoir met: "riddergoed", "kasteeltje". Ons verblijf deed recht aan deze vertaling. Wij waanden ons in een tijdperk die een paar eeuwen achter ons ligt (de bouw dateert uit de 15e eeuw). Immense slaapkamers, statige trappen, een heel groot overdekt terras, een landgoed met een goed verzorgde tuin, bosschages met fruitbomen, wandelpaden, o.a. naar een riviertje dat de grens aangeeft van het terrein.

De foto's aan de muren, de gevulde boekenkasten, de meubilering en de voorwerpen uit de verschillende eeuwen verwijzen naar de rijke geschiedenis van dit huis en de familie Gaussen. De huidige eigenaar is bezig een boek te schrijven over de geschiedenis van zijn familie en het landgoed.

Wij hebben genoten van de mogelijkheden die ons geboden werden, het verwarmde zwembad, de overal aanwezige zon- en schaduwplekken, de wandelmogelijkheden, jeu de boules bij de oprijlaan, etc.

Wij hebben ook het vertrouwen van de eigenaar in ons om tijdens het verblijf als een "goede gast" zorg te hebben voor het huis en de omgeving bijzonder gewaardeerd.
