Set in the beautiful french countryside, the property is located between the medieval towns of Souillac and Gourdon and is well situated for the major attractions of the Dordogne region. Within a short walk is the unspoilt village of Lamothe Fenelon with its medieval church, small lake and children's playground, restaurant and convenience shop. 5 km away is the picturesque village of Payrac with village shop, pharmacy, doctor and three restaurants. The Dordogne river is 10 minutes drive away for canoeing, swimming, bathing and picnicking. The medieval town of Sarlat is about half an hours drive away and Rocamadour is about 1 hour away. Additionally there are numerous villages, castles, caves and other attractions locally or within a short drive away. The local towns hold regular markets and sporting/music/cultural events and local places to visit include the Grottes de Cougnac, Rocamador, Gouffres de Padirac and Domme. Both Souillac and Gourdon are served by train stations connecting to major cities and Brive la Gaillarde airport is 25 minutes away.

The Dordogne and the Lot comprise a very rural and deeply rooted corner of south-west France. Outside of a few minor revolts and sackings nothing serious has happened here since the Middle Ages. The lack of history (and economic development) made the area a backwater for centuries, but eventually fortune likes to even these things out. Today it's a manicured garden of small farmers, dotted with lovely medieval villages. It's the sort of serene and old-fashioned hideaway that harried folk from Europe's big cities find irresistible.

It's not just about sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine (though millions of visitors can't be wrong). Both the Dordogne and Lot also offer good fun for the outdoors-minded. Many come to enjoy the rivers but other possibilities abound and there are plenty of pretty villages to stop in for refreshments, making this ideal country for hiking and biking.Mostly, though, it's about canoes and kayaks. If you're on the Lot or Dordogne, you'll never be far from someone who will rent you one, and then take you up the river so you can drift leisurely back down.

There are plenty of culinary delights, from duck and the famous black truffles to delicate little discs of goat cheese called cabcou; the cooking here matches the land itself: hearty, solid and traditional. Restaurants range from refined temples of cuisine to simple ferme auberges places run as part of a family farm that do wonderful things with the old-time recipes. The region's wines complement these well: the excellent, often underestimated varieties of Bergerac and deep red Vin de Cahors. Both areas are strongholds of small vintners who are happy to receive visitors, and lots of people come down just for the wine touring.

By all means, hit the weekly village markets, as much for the atmosphere as the great food and keep an eye out for posters advertising a village fetes and festivals, weekly markets and speciality themed markets and festivals. In summer, they are everywhere, all the time. There is nothing more convivial and fun than a French village fête, with concerts, games and dinners in the open air, and maybe fireworks to top it all off on Sunday night. On almost any weekend, you'll have a choice between several in the vicinity.

Among the sights are surprises such as the lovely chateau near Domme that has become a shrine to Josephine Baker. The ancient religious pilgrimage site of Rocamadour has become a nest of wild roadside attractions for less pious visitors; above the medieval cliffside chapels you can watch giant condors soar and get to know Barbary apes.

The quality of life here attracts a lot of interesting people, and right now they're doing their best to make this corner of the southwest a centre for arts and crafts. You'll find galleries in tiny villages offering everything from designer jewellery to bronze sculptures
