Very comfortable country house with views over rolling countryside.
The house has three double bedrooms, all ensuite, there is a small single room suitable for a child that can be made available. A well fitted kitchen gives onto the covered terrace with superb views. The house is a family home, and not just a rental property, as such is full of great art & very comfortable, the large sitting room has TV/DVD and lots of games. There are all mod cons, washing machine etc. and all linen and towels are provided. There is a private enclosed pool and many places to be tranquil and apart from the maddening crowd!
It is peacefully situated on the edge of a small hamlet, but within easy reach of small towns with all facilities and not far from the larger towns of Perigueux & Angouleme. Riberac (15kms) has a renowned market on Fridays and many restaurants, as does the nearer town of Verteillac. In the summer months there is great music in all the local bar/restaurants. Just over the border in the Charentes is the region of Cognac & Pineau with Aubeterre, (one of the most beautiful villages in France) a very old hill top town with the largest monolithic churches in Europe (a church carved into the rock) and the river with a great beach for kids. Perigueux the Dordogne's capital has a beautiful renaissance center and impressive Gallo-Roman museum, designed by Jean Nouvel, well worth a visit. The city has a wonderful market on Wednesdays food, clothes everything! Further south there is Sarlat and surrounding Bastide towns, but having said that, I don't think you'll want to go far it is a really nice spot!
