About the property

Farmhouse in Vendoire, Nr. Verteillac, Riberac, Gurat, Villebois Lavellette

Our Farm Home is located in the Dordogne area of the South of France with Panoramic Views surrounding. Chez Desier stands in a commanding position on the top of a hill and set in its own two acre garden surrounded by farmland, the house and pool are totally private. The area containing the swimming pool is completely fenced, providing safety, cosiness and privacy, with views of the gardens. The nearest village is Nanteuil Auriac de Bourzac. Nearby Verteillac has all amenities and Riberac, with its renowned Friday market, has a variety of interesting small boutiques, cafe bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, etc.

The house is spacious and comfortable, with a very large family kitchen, and is amply provided in every way (bedding, kitchen machines and utensils, TV, music players, games, WiFi etc.. The aim is to ensure that our guests have everything they need, that everything in the house works properly and is of high quality.

If you like peaceful countryside, good food and wine and bustling French markets, start here! Angouleme, Brantome, Cognac, Perigeux and all the great wine-growing areas around Bordeaux (of which St Emilion is probably the most attractive) are easy to reach by car.

The Atlantic coast is less than 2 hours drive away; and the caves of the Dordogne are about an hour and a half away -a marvellous trip for a rainy day. Also within easy reach there are plenty of tennis courts, and rivers and lakes to swim or fish or boat in.

Golf: There is a 9 hole golf course in an attractive leisure complex about 15 minutes away which also has tennis courts and a swimming pool. Perigueux (40 minutes) and Cognac (50 minutes) also have very good 18 hole courses.

About Craig and Becky Keene

We are Craig and Beck Keene, proud owners of Chez Desier and have been happily settled in this area since 2011. We have rented our lovely farmhouse out for the past 3 years during which time we have received some amazing reviews and feedback.

Craig and Becky Keene purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Craig and Becky Keene chose Vendoire

We have spent many years enjoying holidays in France, but always seemed to be drawn back to this region with the sunflowers, the fine wines and beautiful scenery. The local markets are just a joy to visit and Aubeterre sur Dronne and Brantome are just some of the wonderful places to visit.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We can honestly say that our guests spend more time at Chez Desier than out and about and we consider this to be the highest complement. The private pool and several seating areas certainly makes this a great place to recharge your batteries. The night sky looks like diamonds on black velvet, and can be the last image you remember as you drift off to sleep.
