Farmhouse in Perigord Vert - Rural, 2km From Village Of Bertric Buree.
The Farmhouse is in the countryside near the village of Bertric Buree in the Perigord Vert, with its rolling hills, fields of sunflowers and slower pace of life. It has the advantage of being closer to the channel ports than the more crowded Bergerac area. Whether you just wish to relax or be more energetic there is much to do for all ages. Lazy days canoeing on the local rivers with dragonflies landing on your canoe, picnics on the riverbanks, swimming in the rivers, local swimming pools or lakes, trying the local wines or more serious studies of the wine chateaux of Bordeaux and Bergerac. Cycling and walking, riding, golf and much more; from medieval towns, Romanesque churches, to the annual snail festival in the village. Numerous restaurants to try, fresh produce from the local markets for your BBQ and warm nights to count the shooting stars.

Peaceful and well situated for lakes and rivers
Stayed here twice in the last two years and would love to come again next summer. Stayed three weeks last year, and four this summer so that is testament to its success. Nearby to bertric buree for croissant run and to Riberac for supplies. Big garden to play badminton in and beautiful courtyard for evenings around bbq. Might even have special healing powers as very unexpected but delightful baby girl arrived 9 months after visit! Owners on hand if you need anything but not too visual.
Wonderful rural location, plenty to do within a short drive, or a great courtyard and garden to relax in. The lake at La Jemaye has good facilities for swimming. Interesting local markets particularly at Riberac on Friday morning. Aubeterre is worth a visit as it so pretty. Friendly helpful owners. Altogether a great place for a holiday.
We love the location surrounded by beautiful countryside. The house is well equipped with large bedrooms, and a huge garden means there is plenty of space for outdoor games as well as al fresco dining. The weekly Friday market in Riberac should not be missed, nor should a visit to Brântome or Grotte de Villars. There are plenty of places to swim and canoe locally as well as pretty villages to visit. Lovely helpful owners. We are sure to return.
Dordogne holiday 2013
Lovely spacious farmhouse and barn. A great find in a rural location with lots of places to visit. Owners very helpful and both properties have all the facilities you need. Rivers and lakes to swim at, markets with fantastic food and lots of sunshine, we all had a very enjoyable holiday.
Activity and Interests
We are about 2 hours drive from the great surfing beaches west of Bordeaux. Lac Le Jamaye is a large lake south of Riberac with safe bathing for all ages, canoes and pedalos for hire. It has cafes, a restaurant and children’s play area set in pine forests and is free. Riberac swimming pool, recently modernised, is excellent and there is a good public pool in Verteillac.
Nearest airport is Bergerac I hour, and within 2 hours or less are Limoges, Poitiers and Bordeaux. Channel ports: Calais 500 miles, St Malo 300 miles, Roscoff 400 miles. TGV Paris to Angouleme 2 hours. A car is necessary to explore the region.
2km from the village of Bertric Buree, which has a boulangerie and restaurant (recently re-opened) The market town of Riberac is 7km, with its popular Friday market, shops, banks, supermarkets and restaurants and big pool and river canoeing. Verteillac village is 5km with shops (Merlauds sells almost everything!), restaurants, pool, art galleries and riding nearby. Aubeterre, 40 minutes, is one of the prettiest French villages with its monolithic church and river swimming.
Bourdeilles and Brantome are medieval towns on the river Dronne and well worth visiting for their museums, rivers & scenic beauty. Nearby are the prehistoric caves Grottes de Villars which are less crowded than the more famous Lascaux. The nearby city of Perigueux has a medieval centre, recently restored, interesting shops and a mime festival in the summer. Bergerac and Bordeaux have old city centres and are a gateway to the variety of famous vineyards of the area and St Emilion of course.
