A fantastic base for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal for groups or families with the facilities for a lazy stay or to act as a base for exploring the Perigord. With four children it was great to have the benefit of the cottage for Auntie to join us. The farmhouse has a spacious kitchen and terrace- large enough for 10 to eat comfortably. The bedrooms are light and spacious. The Farmhouse sits alongside the cottage in a large expanse of land- great for exploring and looking for the farm animals nearby. The pool is great for all the family benefitting from incredible views across the local countryside. The plot is secluded but easy to find with nearby Jumilac-le-grand close enough for bread runs. We enjoyed visiting caves, rivers and local towns without having to travel too far.

Overall we would recommend this property for families- and would see this being a great base for adult groups of couples (once the children have grown out of holidays!)

Further Details:

The village of Jumilhac has a restaurant that offers traditional French fayre. During the summer every Sunday morning a produce market is held in the square of Jumilhac- a great place to stock up with local goods. This area is well suited to outdoor pursuits - Cycling, canoeing, walking, running, fishing, horse-riding to name a few. A great selection of dining opportunities- restaurants offering traditional French choices, pizza bistros and a selection of fine dining establishments are within proximity of our home.

A popular way to spend a summer evening is attending one of the night markets- closest ones to us are Segur le Chateau and Saint Yrieix La Perche. Local produce is offer at the markets and the stall holders will cook your chosen meal as you soak up the ambience- often accompanied by the sound of a local musician or two.
