This lovely quiet Villa is a beautiful, hand-built, traditional Perigourdine house in woodland in a village with a famous 12th century Abbey. The cosy living room has direct access to the front garden and there are French windows to a delightful rear verandah with steps to the garden, pool and Summer kitchen with Barbeque. One of the ground floor bedrooms also has French windows opening on to the front lawn. The house is furnished with traditional French furniture. Bedding is of very good quality and comfortable.
The large swimming pool has roman steps leading into the shallow end, and measures 10 m x 5 m, depth 1-2m. A pingpong table provides fun for all the family, and children can take advantage of the swings. The house is cleaned before arrival, and the cleanliness of the pool is checked every day.
The house is situated in a desirable quiet residential village called Chancelade which is surrounded by thick woodland so typical of the Dordogne. The 12th Century town of Perigueux with its quaint little antique shops, boutiques and good restaurants is only 3kms away. A large supermarket is 2kms away.
I am of British nationality, married to a Frenchman. We have been renting this house every year to British tourists for 20 years. I live in Paris, and a family member lives in Chancelade to help our visitors in every way. I work in International Communications, and have been living in France for over 20 years.

This property is ideal for families and children as it provides an ideal environment to relax and get away from your everyday routine. The house is set in very quiet surroundings, and offers a super French style of living for your holiday in France.
We often come and spend our holidays here, and my children love the house and areas.
The house is unique in that it has been entirely hand built out of thick Perigordine stone so typical of the region. This Perigordine style goes back to the medieval ages, and can only be seen in the Dordogne region. The sun loungers around the lovely pool offer a super place to relax for the day. We have fitted out a summer kitchen with oven, dishwasher, and BBQ which enables families to have their dinner by the pool in the evenings. There is satellite TV and Internet connection.
