About Neill Weatherill

We moved to France in 2005 and after a long search, found this property in a small hamlet between Sarrazac and Jumilhac-le-Grand. A couple of years of planning and easy, problem-free renovation (we've all seen the TV programmes) and in 2008, one end of our 300 year-old barn was transformed into “Les Rossignols d’Ancheyra”.

We live in the same hamlet and are available at all times, should you require our help or advice, though of course we realise that if you may prefer to be left to your own devices.

Neill Weatherill purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Neill Weatherill chose Sarrazac

Les Rossignols is situated on the edge of the Natural Regional Park of Périgord-Limousin, in the Périgord Vert, the unspoilt northern corner of the Dordogne, known for its landscape of valleys, trees and water.

Although it is the quietest of the Périgord areas, we are less than an hour away from the more developed tourist areas of the Dordogne and Limousin.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The accommodation is roomy and comfortable, whilst providing access to those people with mobility issues, we have tried to retain the character and charm of the property.

The gîte has its own private entrance, pool and landscaped gardens, from which, birdwatchers will enjoy watching and listening to the wealth of birds in this area.

It is a beautiful position for people with a passion for painting and drawing, with beautiful scenery without even leaving your terrace.

There are many woodland areas in and around the property and this contributes to the very high quality of the air, so stargazers will be pleased with the wonderful sights of the night sky.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for a lovely stay, the villa has been the best we have stayed at in our 8 years of French holidays. We have all enjoyed the lovely pool and the peace and quiet. Many thanks again. E.C. W.Midlands August 2009.

Congratulations Terri & Neill you have created a beautiful Gite with brilliant access for wheelchair users without compromising on style. We have had a wonderful relaxing week. It is so refreshing to find somewhere that not only caters for disabled people but understands that disabled people also have a sense of style and appreciate the finer things in life and don't want to be put in a clinical environment. The rooms were not only spacious but very well equipped. Access to the shower/wet room was excellent and made the holiday so much easier. So much thought has gone into the design even down to having a ramp down into the pool. Well done and thank you so much for your warm and helpful hospitality. GJ Flintshire Sep 2009.

Peace of Heaven in the Dordogne

  • 5 of 5

If you want peace , tranquility and a wonderful welcome Les Rossignols D'Ancheyra is the ideal destination for you . Set in the beautiful countryside an hours drive from Limoge airport the Gitte is well equipped and tastefully decorated with every convenience you could ask for . The bedrooms are spacious , spotlessly clean and each has it's own bath/shower facility . There is a pool , outdoor seating and barbecue area for you to enjoy . The decked patio just outside the entrance to the Gitte is particularly pleasant for Lunch and pre -dinner drinks . As we did'nt hire a car , the owner Neill had offered to pick us up from the Airport and his wife Terri had organised a delicious meal for our arrival .Both patrons were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them both . Extras such as Airport pick ups etc can be organised with Neill or Terri and is of minimal cost . As a family we all felt relaxed knowing that no-one in our party had to drive or cook when we arrived in France so it was well worth it . Both patrons were extremely knowledgeable about the local area and provided tips and suggestions of things to do and places to see . Our family had a wonderful holiday and we are all looking forward to next year when we go back .

Thanks to both our hosts ! .

Great for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

We were a mixed-age group, including kids and Gran. First of all we were all struck by the beautiful setting, with views across a lovely valley. We had never seen so many birds and butterflies! There was absolute peace for the oldies and loads of space for the kids to run and play. And of course a lovely clean pool for everyone. When we were tired of lazing by the pool or on the terrace we went off to explore Brantome (a scenic riverside town), Perigueux (good for shopping, with an old quarter) and nearby Jumilhac with its huge chateau, not forgetting the amazing market at Piegut.The gite itself was spacious and very well equipped and owners were nearby if we needed them but never intruded. Highly recommended!

Lovely wheelchair accessible holiday home

  • 5 of 5

"I cannot recommend this holiday "home from home" highly enough! Being a wheelchair user, access is always a big consideration when booking any accommodation.

The friendly and informative contact with the owners assured me that the amenities would be suitable. I was not disappointed!

The G?te is comfortable, with all the mod cons that worked well for the whole family. Facilities for me were everything that was promised. The private pool (also accessible) was a delight.

The location is peaceful with an abundance of wildlife, wonderful to just relax! A car is essential to visit the heart of the Dordogne with everything it has to offer within an hour's drive.

We will be back!"
