About the property

Farmhouse in Teyjat, Nortron, Dordogne, France - Peaceful Loc Easy Reach Of Amenities & Private Enclosed parking

An 18th century restored farmhouse retaining original characteristics with all modern facilities. Situated in a small hamlet with many footpaths and with a go-karting track of national repute nearby. Various local activities include kayaking, golfing, fishing and the nearest man-made beach with water sports is only 7 km distance at St Estephe. The local market in Piegut-Pluviers is the largest in the Dordogne and held on Wednesday mornings. Friday market at Brantome and Saturday market at Nontron are also well worth a visit. There is a adventure park in Angouleme, 30 mins away, and a water adventure park in Nontron (20 mins away) including a thrilling Zip Wire ride over the lake.

About Audrey Kolbusz

I am a retired midwife and my husband George, a retired teacher and Ex-Kumon Instructor. We have lived in Beaumont in the Dordogne since April 2012. We fell in love with our property with 2 acres of parkland in 2008 and initially came here during our holidays. We enjoy meeting people both French and English, exploring local and not so local places of interest and tasting the local cuisine. George is a keen chess player and plays for the local chess club.

Audrey Kolbusz purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Audrey Kolbusz chose Dordogne

We had been looking to buy a French property for a number of years and when we first saw a picture, of the view from our swimming pool we were both smitten! It is a very tranquil area but close to all amenities and places of interest. Nontron is 15 mins by car and Brantome, commonly referred to as 'the Venice of the Pergord Vert', is only half an hour with Perigueux barely an hours drive. In opposite directions we are 40 mins from Angouleme and just over an hour from Limoges airport and the city itself. The enchanting Lakes of the Haute Charente are only 40 mins away.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We enjoy gardening and maintaining 2 acres of parkland on our property. And as already mentioned there are many exciting places to visit including local chateaux, and activities to take part in. There is even a man made lake and beach within a few kilometres at St Estephe! A private fishing lake is available with all equipment/bait provided plus fishing lessons if required.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Audrey and George are wonderful caring hosts. Ensuring that we had everything we required, giving us good local information but never intruding. A delightful and comfortable house with excellent facilities and space. We spent two weeks gradually relaxing into a chilled out stupour. Heaven! The swimming pool and grounds are fabulous. Do not be put off by the location close to the go-karting circuit. This does not disturb you to any extent and is actually great fun to visit. The rural area is beautiful, laid back and very French. Unlike some areas of the Perigord you don't think you're in a part of little Britain surrounded by expats. Great markets to visit at nearby towns, as well as festivals in local villages, also close enough to some fabulous medieval towns, castles and prehistoric caves. Certainly an area and house we will seriously consider returning to. Thank you for a great holiday.
