About the Owner

I'm a kiwi married to an Englishman. We bought our farmhouse in 1990 - an escape from the English weather for me and always a wonderful place to relax and recuperate with family and friends.

From the Owner

Ideal for 2 families, extended family or group of friends. Lots of space inside and out, large pool, very calming and peaceful with long captivating views over beautiful rolling countryside. A lovely walk down to Seyches to a patisserie with far too many delicacies, small grocery store, tabac, bank, pharmacy, two bar/ restaurants, great for morning coffee. We are lucky to have a local fare restaurant that offers an excellent four course meal including local red wine for 12€ to 16€.

Further Details:

Perhaps one of the most fascinating places to visit is Les Eyzies, an acknowledged source of prehistoric man, whilst nearby are Bergerac and Sarlat on the Dordogne River, where much of the old French culture originated. There is a marvellous circuit of fortified 'bastide' towns, new towns developed during the 13th and 14th centuries, they were the last manifestation of the great movement involving rural and urban expansion in the Europe of the Middle Ages. They have a large central square and a classical pattern of narrow streets intersecting at right angles - Monpazier being one of the finest. The traditional architecture of the area is a constant delight: honey coloured stone, mellow red tiled roofs and on the grander buildings many 'pigeonniers' - pigeon towers and turrets.

This is one of the gastronomic areas of France, having many excellent restaurants, most very good value for money, serving local specialties such as confit d'oie or canard. You will discover the delicious and legendary pruneaux from Agen. Another important element of this region is it's wines. The wines from Bergerac are excellent, while Monbazillac is a truly delicious dessert wine, not to mention Bordeaux & Duras wines. The local walnut aperitif and liquer must also be tasted.

There are several lakes to visit with sandy beaches, ideal for swimming, windsurfing and sailing, the best complete with pedaloes, and canoes for hire and a thrilling watershute complex. Tennis can be played in Seyches and fishing and horseriding are readily available. 3 good golf courses are within a half hour drive, the best being an 18 hole competition course overlooking a beautiful lake at Casteljaloux.

The climate is delightful, the spring arrives early in March as nature treats you to a wonderful array of blossom and a multitude of fresh pastel colours.

Altogether this historic part of France with it's rural life, busy markets and beautiful climate provides the most relaxing and rewarding holiday experience.
