Period Farmhouse with Attached Barn
Rural, 2km from Village of Bertric Buree
Sleeps 6 and 6 (6 Bedrooms)
The Farmhouse is in the countryside near the village of Bertric Buree in the Perigord Vert, with its rolling hills, fields of sunflowers and slower pace of life. It has the advantage of being closer to the channel ports than the more crowded Bergerac area. Whether you just wish to relax or be more energetic there is much to do for all ages. Lazy days canoeing on the local rivers with dragonflies landing on your canoe, picnics on the riverbanks, swimming in the rivers, local swimming pools or lakes, trying the local wines or more serious studies of the wine chateaux of Bordeaux and Bergerac. Cycling and walking, riding, golf and much more; from medieval towns, Romanesque churches, to the annual snail festival in the village. Numerous restaurants to try, fresh produce from the local markets for your BBQ and warm nights to count the shooting stars.
