Nature lovers chalet nestled in the heart of Perigord with heated pool

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
3 double bedrooms in beautiful park with heated swimming pool near golf

'La Truffière' is an adorable chalet lying in the heart of nature, with a 1 ha park at the end of a private road with no neighbours and surrounded by forest, at only 3 kms from a historical village classified 'Most beautiful villages of France' in the centre of the 'Perigord' surrounded by pre historical caves, famous castles, Sarlat, Les Eyzies... one can partake in especially good wine&cuisine.

The inside of the chalet and the annex is all in wood and offers 3 rooms: 2 double bed rooms and one small room with 2 single beds. 2 rooms have air con. On the first floor of the Chalet is a living room (sofa for 6, TV (satellite), Hi-FI, DVD) with an eating area, a fully equipped kitchen, a shower room and a toilet. The stairs to reach the second floor is very steep thus not suitable for elderly or very young children. The annex offers an additional shower room and a restroom. The surroundings offers plenty of activities: river trout-fishing à 5 km, 2 golfs at 3 kms including a 18 holes golf course, canoe at 4 km on the Dordogne River where you can enjoy viewing the 5 main castles of Dordogne.

An exceptional surrounding : La Truffière lies in a 1 ha fully fenced park at the end of a 300m private road. The main road linking Siorac and Belvès lies dowhill at around 400 yard (the only non natural noise when there is some traffic). The entrance gate opens by means of a remote control. You will feel the great privacy of the place. The garden around the houses is enhanced with more than 20 lights so that you will enjoy long summer nights....

A warm service: At any moment you need, local staff are available to help you. The garden and the swimming pool are taken care of every week at the time which is convenient to you. A guest book with useful information will help you to make your stay enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

La semaine de vacance était parfait. On aime beaucoup la maison et l’ environement, la silence et le repos. C’était la deuxième fois qu’ on était la et la mason c’ était encore amélioré. On éspère vraiment d’ avoir la possibilité de revenir dans le future.

Idyllic chalet in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Quiet location, nice pool, a great place to relax. Lots of places to visit nearby, or just laze around. Steep ladder to bedrooms in main chalet, so those with bad knees will have to sleep in the cabin. Table and chairs in the garden, and sofas under an awning, barbeque. My family want to go back already.

Truly relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

Family of 4 stayed here and we truly enjoyed our stay here. All facilities as described provided us everything we needed. The house was very clean and well maintained, and the grounds and pool were excellent. The location is outstanding and very relaxing. Owner was responsive throughout the process and assisted us during our stay. Thank you Sylvain for an excellent break!

Impressive Location

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic 2 week stay at La Truffiere. You could not ask for a more perfect location. Set behind electric gates in acres of woodland in complete privacy. Wildlife everywhere you look. Bear in mind that it is 1 hour drive from the nearest motorway. The main chalet has a reasonably spacious living area downstairs with a tv and dvd player. Kitchen has a 4 ring gas hob and a combi microwave which did the job but we could really have done with an oven as we usually like to eat in. Well equipped otherwise, plenty of knives, forks,plates etc. Having read previous reviews I can confirm that yes, you will have to use ant killer - but what do you expect in the middle of a forest? We just kept our food sealed or in the fridge. The bathroom is small and a bit dated. We mainly used the outside facilities joined onto the separate house at bottom of garden The stairs are unsuitable for toddlers or the elderly. We came with our 2 boys of 11 & 14 who loved it. Loads of room to run about. Evenings spent playing hide and seek in woods or sitting round outside seating area. The surrounding area is superb with loads to do within half hours drive. Caves, canoeing on Dordogne, Go Karting. Don't miss the Wednesday evening food market in Belves - but take your own plates, knives and forks and wine. Would definitely come back.

Un coin beau et reposant

  • 4 of 5

Une propriété très grande et agréable à l'environnement particulièrement luxuriant, un aménagement extérieur sympa, bref, "the place to be" si on souhaite se reposer et se balader aux alentours. Belves est en outre un village médiéval qui vaut le détour. Nous sommes râvis de notre séjour et comptons revenir une prochaine fois. Seul petit regret, n'ayant pas eu très beau temps, l'eau de la piscine était tout de même très fraîche, si elle avait été chauffée, ça aurait été le top, car du coup nous n'en avons pas énormément profité.

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre avis. Ravi que vous ayez passé d'excellente vacances ! Oui la piscine est chauffée à la demande. Un simple coup de fil et la piscine est chauffée ! La piscine a un système de chauffage justement pour parer à tout aléas climatique... très utile en mi-saison. Elle peut même être couverte tout en permettant la baignade. Pour une prochaine fois j'espère. Très bonne rentrée. Sylvain
