Cottage 2 (Sleeps 2. 1 Bedroom)

Upstairs: Bathroom with large bath, separate shower cubicle, washbasin with vanity and WC.

This lovely converted barn in the delightful village of Salignac is in easy walking distance of the village amenities and yet is peaceful and private. The barn is divided into a romantic 1 bedroom cottage (including a 4-poster bed, with views of the medieval chateau), and a spacious 2 bedroom cottage with many original features. If both gites are required, the soundproof adjoining door can be unlocked. Each cottage is self-contained, with its own private patio, and joint access to the garden and pool. Each has all modern conveniences, including central heating and satellite TV, but keeps the character with exposed beams and stonework, and rustic furniture. There are lovely views all around - across the medieval village, the garden and pool, and to the chateau and beyond. This beautiful area of France has something to offer everyone - prehistoric cave paintings, medieval chateaux, beautiful gardens, pilgrimage spots, outdoor activities, cultural events, food and wine.
About the Owner
About Julie Dodd
My husband and I have been lucky enough to travel a lot through his work, but we felt we needed a place of our own. As he comes from the North of England and I am from the South we felt we needed to buy in neutral territory - and what better place than this lovely corner of France!
Julie Dodd purchased this in 2004
