Overview

About the property

Sleeps 5 peaceful location with views, yet close to all major attractions

Truffle is a lovely stone character cottage that sits as part of a small cluster of buildings on gentle slope next to its sister cottage Walnut, on the edge of the traditional working hamlet of Le Peyruzel. The outline of the 13th century Chateau Peyruzel is ever present as it looks down across the valley. It is in a truly tranquil spot where you can relax unwind and watch the evening sunsets and the rolling country scenery. You have a lovely private terrace and a garden area, where you can eat and relax. The 9 x 5m pool was newly built for 2017 and sits in the most perfect location. It has plenty of terrace space on two sides and the most incredible views. In most of the Spring and Summer season it benefits from the sun all day long with a little corner of shade if you need it. The sun sets behind Le Peyruzel and so you can enjoy lovey warm afternoon and late swims after a hard days sight-seeing. The pool is fitted with an electric security cover and is also fully enclosed with self closing gates for added safety. The cottage is very comfortable inside with lots of exposed stone and beams. The tiled floor ensures it stays cool in the Summer and a huge wood burner is fitted for guest staying in the late Autumn and Winter months. It is open plan with sofas and armchairs a big dining table and satellite TV and DVD player. It has a spacious handmade kitchen. We hope we have thought of everything you will need to create a home away from home including free WiFi. Upstairs there is a lovely double bedroom with high ceilings and French doors that open out to let in the early morning sunlight. There our bed side table with lamps, hanging space, a big chest of drawers. The second bedroom has two full size single beds one of them is set up high and is reached by a big sturdy ladder. There is also hanging and drawer storage. There is also an additional full size single bed on the landing area with its own chest of drawers. There is bathroom that can be used as a bath or shower with loo and hand basin.

PLEASE NOTE

It is possible to book both our gites Walnut & Truffle together to enjoy as two families. this will give a total capacity of 9 (plus a baby if required) you will then have exclusivity of the pool.

About Carolyn Thompson

I moved to France to live permanently in 2016 with my husband Jerry and our Working Cocker Spaniel Inca. It's hard not to fall in love with this area. We had explored this region on holiday when our children were very young and again 20 years later when they were all grown up. Our attraction for the Perigord Noir had never diminished and so now we find ourselves living our own little dream and having a French adventure.

Le Peyruzel is a special spot, it remains very unspoiled and operates as a working farming community, crops here are mainly Walnut groves, but also wheat, barley, hay, maize, and sunflowers too. Our properties sit nestled on the slopes and enjoy the most amazing views across the Ceou valley and beyond. The properties are about 200 years old and formed a cluster of ancient farm buildings, they have been lovingly restored from dereliction by the previous owners over a period of 20 years and have operated as gites for many years. A brand new pool built into the slope has been created by us this year and this has been a most welcome addition to the property and helps to ensure that our children come to visit us regularly!

Carolyn Thompson purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Carolyn Thompson chose Daglan

The thing that sold this property to us was the character of the buildings themselves, the quality of their renovation and the views. When you drive in you just feel peaceful, relaxed and at home.... it’s as simple as that!

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location….to be in such a perfect spot and yet so close to so many of the regions gems it what makes Le Peyruzel a special place.
