Elegant 18th Century Stone Farmhouse W/private Pool



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
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 the Owner

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.

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.

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.

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...!

From the Owner

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 !

From the Owner

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.
