About the property


Surrounded by acres of rolling farmland Le Texier is a little piece of paradise to spend your holiday. Comprising two self-catering holiday homes with panoramic views and a short walk from the beautiful and vibrant village of Verteillac. Set on a plot of one acre the properties have been refurbished to a very high standard retaining traditional and original features but containing all the modern equipment you would expect to meet all your holiday needs. Le Texier ticks many of the boxes for a relaxing holiday in the French countryside - private heated pools, peaceful location surrounded by farmland, stunning sunsets, a village with bakery, bars & restaurants within walking distance, very comfortable beds, and plenty of space inside and out.

The Haybarn:

The Haybarn is a spacious 3 bedroomed property comfortably sleeping six, and with a large kitchen area and spacious lounge. The bedrooms can be set up as either twin or super king-size. In 2016 two of the bedrooms have benefitted from the addition of en-suite shower facilities. In the morning awaken to birdsong from the garden and spend your evening enjoying the beautiful sunsets from your terrace and outdoor eating area complete with BBQ.

The house has all the facilities you might need including dishwasher, washing machine, television & dvd player. Plenty of crockery, pans and cooking equipment are provided in the kitchen. There are books and games suitable for all ages to help you while away any quieter moments.

There is a gorgeous pool area with a choice of terrace areas and lawn in which to relax and enjoy the heated pool. The pool is a uniform depth of 1.4m.

The Cottage:

Renovated and fully redecorated in 2016 is our gorgeous little one-bedroomed cottage. Set at the other end of the garden from the Haybarn, it has a fabulous open-plan living and kitchen area with high beamed ceilings as well as its own private heated pool. The comfortable bedroom can be either king-size or twin beds, and has an en-suite bathroom with bath and overhead shower. One of the sofas in the living area coverts to a very comfortable large double bed, enabling the cottage to sleep up to 4 people in total.

French doors open from the kitchen onto the south-facing terrace area, where you can enjoy the sun all day long, with outdoor seating and table and bbq for outdoor dining. The terrace overlooks the pool and with views across the fields towards the village of Verteillac.

About Sinead Jefferies

We made the move from the UK with our young son in April 2015 and are delighted to have made our home at Le Texier, just outside the wonderful village of Verteillac. It's a bit of a change of pace from our previous lives working full time in London, but we're loving every minute and so glad we've chosen to live in this beautiful area.

Sinead Jefferies purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Sinead Jefferies chose Perigord Vert

The houses themselves have been wonderfully refurbished, with plenty of space both inside and out. It was so important to us to live (and for our guests to holiday) somewhere that's peaceful and relaxing, but with all the amenities you would want on hand just a 10 minute walk through the fields (or a 2 minute drive) in the village of Verteillac. When you're on holiday, you want to be able to easily pick up fresh bread and croissants seven days a week (yes - even Sundays!), and be able to walk to a choice of restaurants when you want a change from a barbecue on the terrace. And the addition of the heated pool makes a huge difference to being able to relax or play in and around the pool.

What makes this cottage unique

For us, it's the setting. Completely surrounded by open farmland - with sunflowers galore in early summer - there are gorgeous views towards the village, spectacular sunsets and places to enjoy the sun - or the shade - all through the day.
