Overview

About the property

Stone FarmHouse, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our exquisitely restored 250 year old Farmhouse. We're in the countryside, but not remote - only a half hour leisurely stroll or 5 minute drive takes you to the closest village, Eymet - a medieval bastide (planned) town with its lively Farmers Market every Thursday - a tradition since 1270. In July and August, you can enjoy the Night Market every Tuesday. Throughout the summer there are outdoor antique fairs and from the end of July through early August, there is a Medieval Faire with costumed actors, troubadours and jugglers. Petit Rousset is located in the Perigord Poupre (wine growing region) and you'll have lots of opportunities to enjoy the delicious wines of the region from sweet Monbazillac to robust Pecharment as well as the lesser known wines of the region. It is easy to visit the local wineries and learn something about their wine making technique as well as sample their wines.

On the ground floor, the living room, kitchen and dining room are on either side of the central hallway. Original tile floors (ancient Gironde) on this rez de chaussez, (ground floor) keep the property cool. French doors lead out from both the Dining Room & Living Room to a covered dining terrace that looks out over the pool and countryside beyond. The views of the countryside make this a delightful spot to enjoy any meal. Steps away is a second terrace, beyond which is the swimming pool.

Upstairs are four individually decorated bedrooms. Each has a full bathroom (toilet, shower & sink) and in each room is a second sink which makes getting ready for each day's adventure so much easier.

Our medieval village, Eymet, has all the amenities that make country living so relaxing - boulangerie, maison de la presse (English newspapers, magazines & books for sale), post-office, etc.). There are also quite a few dining options - from a modest but delicious pizzeria to an elegant and exquisitely delicious restaurant. Preparing food at home is a wonderful option, too - especially each Thursday when you come home with bags heavy laden with the ripest of fruits and freshest of produce.

Twenty minutes by car and you’re at the fairy tale castle of Monbazillac, touring the Chateau or sipping the sweet white wine of the same name, which the locals drink with dessert or more often with another speciality of the region, foie gras. One of our favourite restaurants is in Monbazillac and the food is as good as the scenery is: spectacular. Another 10 minutes farther north will find you at the capital of the Perigord Poupre, Bergerac, made famous by the Musketeer who never set foot in the town.

The twice weekly Farmer’s Market which engulfs the Church with fresh, local produce and the Maison des Vins, where you may taste and sniff as many local wines are you are able, will make you forget all about Cyrano’s slight! At Bergerac, you can explore Old Town by foot or take a relaxing gabarre (flat bottom boat) ride and travel lazily along the Dordogne River.

Within an hour radius of Petit Rousset, grand chateaux and simple wineries welcome you and offer you samples of their Bergerac sec (white wine), Pecharment (red wine) and of course Monbazillac wine. If you enjoy Farmer’s Markets, you can find one everyday and depending upon the season, you can gorge on white asparagus, wild strawberries or perfectly ripened peaches. If you like antiquing or searching for bargains, then the brocantes (antique fairs) and vide greniers (literally empty the attic) held in different villages and towns each weekend throughout the summer, are for you.

Sightseeing too is easy with Petit Rousset as your base. Within an hour or so drive, you’ll be touring beautifully preserved medieval hill towns like Beynac and Castelnaud with their fabulous fortress chateaux, medieval bastides (planned towns) created by English and French rivals during the 100 Years Wars, of which nearby Monpazier is the best preserved. Then there are Sarlat and Brantome and their nearby Renaissance pleasure chateaux.

And of course, there are the caves with prehistoric paintings from Lascaux to Font de Gaume and Rouffignac (where you visit the cave by electric train) that are not to be missed. From late July through mid-August, medieval fairs abound - with actors, dancers and musicians all in period costume, you'll be transported back in time. Please keep scrolling for more views of Petit Rousset.

About Beverly Held

We began visiting the Perigord in 1987 and fell in love with it immediately, especially the Perigord Poupre (wine growing region) a wonderful combination of old stone buildings and meticulously kept vineyards. Charming villages and daily farmers markets added to the charm.

Beverly Held purchased this farmhouse in 1996

Why Beverly Held chose Perigord Pourpre

When we found the property it was a sad little one story house covered with dull beige plaster with brown volets (shutters). We removed the plaster and discovered beautiful stone walls both inside and out. Charming details emerged like the bread ovens in one bedroom and chimney in another. We built a staircase and invited the owl living in the rafters to find other accommodations and created four bedrooms where there had been only emptiness !

What makes this farmhouse unique

It is a real luxury to stay in a place where each bedroom has its own bathroom as well as a sink tucked into the corner of each bedroom. It is so nice to wake up in the morning looking forward to the day's adventures without having to lose precious time waiting to use the bathroom ! The bedrooms are all spacious and each in unique.

Rustic charm in beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful farmhouse stands in it's own large orchard commanding stunning views over the Dordogne countryside. The downstairs space offers rustic accommodation whilst the bedrooms upstairs are bright and spacious, charming and wonderfully cosy and homely. We enjoyed the local Bastide town Eymet with it's many dining options, accessing via a 40 minute wander through beautiful countryside. The night sky with a myriad of shooting stars was an added delight.This was our first visit to this region of France, and the owner Beverley could not have been more responsive in answering our many questions prior to our booking and beyond, forwarding us many communications including reading lists and advice on the variety of things to see and do. The locality is stunning - fields of sunflowers; beautiful and historic towns; rolling lush green countryside and the Dordogne river and all it has to offer. We were quite blown away by this region and thrilled to have had the fortune of finding this charming farmhouse and beautiful pool to come home to. A very special holiday. Thank you Beverley.

Fantastique!

  • 5 of 5

Nous - deux couples et trois adolescents - étions dans cette belle maison en Juillet 2016. Il était un séjour parfait! L'emplacement est génial - le centre d'Eymet n´est pas loin (environ 2,5 km). Le terrain est calme sur une petite colline. Il y a une belle vue et on se sent lui-même et tranquille.

La maison est très confortable et décorée avec amour, les chambres avec chacune 2 lits simples confortables assurent le meilleur repos et le luxe des quatre salles de bains attenantes était très agréable. La cuisine spacieuse et la salle de séjour confortable offrent assez d'espace pour un séjour agréable.

L´espace extérieur avec l´accueillante joli terrasse, la grande prairie et la belle piscine complètent un séjour réussi.

Notre chère hôtesse Beverly s´a occupé très bien de nous et elle était là aussi pour toutes nos demandes pendant notre séjour. Elle avait les meilleurs conseils pour des excursions intéressantes et les caractéristiques culinaires dans la Dordogne.

Cher Beverly, nous vous remercions beaucoup pour le grand temps avec toi et nous aimerions revenir!

Cordialement – les deux familles de Dortmund!

Great Holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We - two couples and three teenagers – have been in  this beautiful house in July 2016. It was just a perfect vacation! The location is great and the center of Eymet is not far away (about 2.5 km). The house is in a calm surrounding on a small hill with a great all-round view and the impression of being on one´s own. From the neighboring properties we have almost noticed nothing.

The house is very cozy and beautifully decorated, the bedrooms with each 2 comfortable single beds ensure the best recovery and the luxury of the next-door four bathrooms was very pleasant. The spacious kitchen and the cozy living room offer enough space for a relaxing holiday.

The grounds with the welcoming, charming overgrown terrace, the large lawn and the beautiful pool complete a successful holiday.

Our dear landlady Beverly took care of us already long before our holiday started and was also there for all our requests during our stay when it was needed. She had the best tips for interesting trips and culinary characteristics in the Dordogne.

Dear Beverly, we thank you very much for the great time with you and will definitely come back!

Kind regards from Dortmund

Fantastisch!

  • 5 of 5

Wir – zwei Ehepaare und drei Teenager – waren im Juli 2016 in diesem wunderschönen Haus. Es war einfach ein perfekter Urlaub! Die Lage ist prima - das Zentrum von Eymet ist nicht weit (ca. 2,5 Km) entfernt. Das Grundstück liegt ruhig auf einer kleinen Anhöhe. Man hat einen tollen Rundumblick und das Gefühl für sich allein zu sein. Von den Nachbargrundstücken haben wir annährend nichts mitbekommen.

Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtet, die Schlafzimmer mit den jeweils 2 bequemen Einzelbetten sorgen für beste Erholung und auch der Luxus der direkt angrenzenden vier Badezimmer war sehr angenehm. Die großzügige Wohnküche sowie das gemütliche Wohnzimmer bieten ausreichend Platz für einen geruhsamen Urlaub.

Die Außenanlage mit der einladenden, charmant überwucherten Terrasse, der großen Wiese und dem schönen Pool rundet einen gelungenen Urlaub ab.

Unsere liebe Vermieterin Beverly hat sich schon im Vorfeld lange vor unserem Urlaub aufmerksam um unsere Anliegen gekümmert und war auch während unseres Aufenthaltes immer für uns da, wenn es nötig war. Beverly hatte auch stets Tipps für interessante Ausflüge in die Dordogne, auch der kulinarischen Art, für uns parat.

Liebe Beverly, wir danken dir sehr für die schöne Zeit bei dir und kommen gerne wieder!

Herzliche Grüße – die Dortmunder!

Wunderschönes Bauernhaus im südwestlichen Perigord

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 2 Familien mit 4 Jugendlichen in diesem wunderbaren Haus und haben alle unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen.

Die Vermieterin Mrs Held nahm uns in Empfang und versorgte uns mit guten Tipps über Haus und Umgebung. Ansonsten konnten wir völlig unbehelligt unseren Urlaub geniessen. Eymet ist wunderbar , mit vielen Engländern. Perigueux und Bergerac sind nicht weit. Ausflüge nach Bordeaux, an den Atlantik und in die Gegend um Les Eyzies und Sarlat ein Muss ! Schöner sauberer Pool mit Sonnenschirmen und super Garten. Bis zu 8 Personen können sich hier wunderbar aufhalten ohne sich auf die Nerven zu gehen. Jederzeit zu empfehlen.

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

A notre arrivée dans sa superbe propriété, Beverly, bien qu'absente, nous avait fait préparer le meilleur des accueils... Tout avait été prévu jusque dans les moindres détails : une impeccable et méticuleuse préparation de la maison, un entretien parfait du magnifique jardin et de la piscine... En quelques minutes, nous étions chez nous, découvrant dans cette grande demeure pleine de charme un confort rare ainsi qu'une extraordinaire décoration où chaque détail raffiné comptait...

Par ailleurs, facilement joignable, nous avons eu le plaisir de pouvoir échanger pratiquement chaque jour avec Beverly... Très attentive, elle n'avait de cesse de s'assurer que tout se passait bien... Régulièrement, Beverly nous proposait ses conseils et des suggestions de visites dans cette très belle région...

Nous reviendrons au Petit Rousset... Cela ne fait aucun doute... Pour cette magnifique propriété remarquablement entretenue mais aussi pour l'excellent et chaleureux accueil qui nous a été réservé... A très bientôt Beverly...!
