About the property

Le Grand Claud in Saint-Médard-d'Excideuil - In The Rolling Landscape Of The Northern Dordogne With Spectacular Views - close to shops

This beautiful old stone farmhouse is full of Perigordian charm with a mass of original old oak beams. The 4 bedrooms are on the first floor and the ground floor is tiled throughout with hand-made terracotta tiles to keep it cool on those balmy summer days. Includes Wi-Fi and Satellite TV. This area is steeped in ancient history, with Richard the Lionheart and his love, Eleanor of Aquitaine having stayed at the local château. The massive château of Hautefort is only a 10 minute drive away, this is the most photographed château in France. You can tour the whole Dordogne from here and return to tranquillity and a cool dip in your own exclusive pool. Close to outdoor activities such as horse riding, hiking, canoeing, potholing, caving, sightseeing. Located just outside the ancient town of Excideuil, about 1 hour drive from Limoge airport and 1 hour from Perigueux.

Great property in a lovely quiet setting.

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a large family or friends holidaying together. The property was clean and had everything we needed and the owner provided a warm welcome.

A really lovely setting with shops, restaurants and bars within cycling/walking distance or a short drive. Very friendly locals.

Excellent base from which to visit local markets, chateaus and attractions or to enjoy some of the fabulous, well signposted cycle/hiking trails. Of course, the swimming pool was the icing on the cake :)

Séjour très agréable dans une jolie demeure restaurée idéale pour des vacances familiales.

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons apprécié la maison située sur les hauteurs d'Excideuil offrant un très beau point de vue sur la vallée et la ville, dans un environnement très tranquille. La piscine offre un espace de baignade et bronzage tout à fait correct. L'accès est sécurisé.

La maison est confortable. Les pièces sont spacieuses notamment la pièce de vie au rez de chaussée très agréable. Il manque peut-être une deuxième salle de bain compte-tenu du nombre de personnes qui peuvent être accueillies mais tout s'est bien passé!! Nous recommandons la location de cette maison. Nous en gardons un beau souvenir. Corinne

Bien dans l'ensemble

  • 3 of 5

Maison agréable bien située et la personne qui vous accueille très sympa (Philippe)

Maison situé près d'un producteur de foie gras rillettes de canard excellent.

Village à côté sympathique.

Mais le confort de cette maison peut et doit être amélioré : obturateur dans les 2 chambres qui ont des velux (sinon le matin réveillé de bonne heure !!)

rajouter de la vaisselle car pour 10 personnes un peu juste (plus de fourchettes et de couteaux, plus de saladiers )

prévoir de changer les matelas car ils commencent à être fatigués.

Un billard dans la pièce mais une seule cane pour jouer.

Prévoir de clôture l'espace derrière la maison pour l'accueil des chiens.

Bref de petites améliorations qui feront de cette maison un endroit fort agréable pour y passer des vacances.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your feedback. We have taken on board your helpful comments and have made the necessary changes. We do normally have parties of less than 10 so the number of dishes, etc. has never previously been an issue, but we have improved the situation. Merci beaucoup pour vos commentaires. Nous avons pris en compte vos commentaires utiles et avons apporté les changements nécessaires. Nous avons normalement des parties de moins de 10, donc le nombre de plats, etc. n'a jamais été un problème auparavant, mais nous avons amélioré la situation.
