Independent accommodation in the tower section of a renovated Maison de Maitre, dating from the 1850s, surrounded by 12 hectares (30 acres) of woodland and meadow, bounded on one side by a stream, creating a very tranquil environment.
The property is situated about 1 km outside the pretty village of Brignac la Plaine and is accessed by a long private driveway.
Accommodation comprises 2 double bedrooms (one of which can either be 2 twin beds or a king size double), each with its own shower or bathroom; fully equipped kitchen/diner with dishwasher and washing machine; sitting room with wood burning stove, satellite T.V, blu-ray and WiFi; separate W.C. There is a private and secluded outside space with covered terrace, barbecue, grassed area and parking. Behind the property are some caves that appear to have once been lived in and predate the house.
We are happy to accept young children but the stairs to the first floor bedrooms are quite steep and therefor not suitable for anyone with reduced mobility and young children would require supervision.
The nearest village, Brignac la Plaine, has a good artisan baker, a general store and a cafe. The nearest town, Terrasson(14km), is exceptionally pretty, sitting astride the river Vezere. Here there is a sizable weekly market, a choice of supermarkets, restaurants and bars, banks and pharmacies. The old town and the city walls are worth exploring as well as the Jardins de l'Imaginaire.
The property is well situated or visiting the many local places of interest such as Lascaux, the Gorge de la Vezere, the many chateaux of the Dordogne and local lakes with swimming and watersports. The area is ideal for cycling and walking with varied terrains and beautiful countryside and there are opportunities for boat trips or canoeing on the rivers. There are 3 golf courses in the area around Brive la Gaillard.
