La Tour du Chambon - the tower wing of a beautiful 1850's Maison de Maitre

Bedrooms 2
Space 936 sq. ft.
Property type chateau / country house


About the property

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.

The property was charming, very comfortable and very well equipped. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and peaceful. The hosts were very helpful during our stay. The instructions to find the property were good. The location was ideal to see all that the Dordogne has to offer.

Incredible Place!

  • 5 of 5

As I told our very kind host and hostess as we left this extraordinarily unique property, "I've never stayed at a place like this before, and I'm sure I never will again."

Start with the fact that -- in the world's premiere destination for early-man archeology -- there are two caves within a hundred feet of the chateau that people once lived in, perhaps thousands of years ago. In addition, the tower apartment is very modernized, clean, well-kept, pleasant, and nicely decorated. The setting is spectacular, with a 200 yard driveway leading to the chateau, which is attached to the tower.

This area is one of my favorite places in France, and this property is arguably the most authentic, unique, and most interesting places in the entire region.

Perfect for kids, couples, or anyone else!

A peaceful oasis in an interesting tourist area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for several nights at the beginning of July and loved the place. The drive up to the house makes you feel very baronial and when you turn the corner and see the house you are transported back in time. The 'Tour' is beautifully equipped and decorated with everything you would need on a holiday break. The place is spotlessly clean and the hosts, Gill and Mark, made us feel very welcome. They were a mine of information about the local area. We visited Lascaux IV (about 35 minutes away) which is a must-see and enjoyed a stroll around the very pretty, if touristy, town of Montignac. The local town of Terrasson (about 15 minutes away) has good supermarkets and a lovely old town on the hill overlooking the river. Go on market day to get real local feel. We loved going back to the Tour in the evening to enjoy a glass of wine in the sunshine and cook a meal. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Thanks Gill and Mark.

Très bon accueil et lieu parfait

  • 5 of 5

Tout est neuf, propre et fait pour le plaisir des locataires. Autour : des balades dans le bois, une visite des grottes du jardin ou la recherche de la forge en ruine. Bref un bel endroit où nous reviendrons certainement !
