An old converted bakery. We kept the wood-fire oven (great for pizzas) in the kitchen and built the bathroom on top. The two rooms are on the ground floor, open to a nice terrace infront. From the first floor (living room) you can overlook the courtyard.
Our property has two houses which we restaurated over the past 16 years with lots of love and passion. It is situated in the middle of a national park, thereby surrounded by forests, rivers and hills; great for lots of different activities which you will find in our entertainment folder in the house.The pool was just recently built and we have lots of blow up toys for kids.
You can also book the entire property which sleeps 18 people in total. Just contact us.
The main house sleeps six adults plus 4 kids comfortably, and has a huge and well equiped kitchen as well a big playroom for the kids.
The house is kitted out with everything you could possibly need to have a great holiday. It opens on the courtyard, with a terrace, table and chairs, facing the gite which we converted from a barn and bread-oven.
The studio with bathroom is perfect for grandparents/nanny/couple with a baby, as it's adjacent to the house on the courtyard, but stand-alone and soundproofed. It's also got a hugely comfortable double bed in.
The gite has one big room at the top with two bedrooms underneath it, sleeping a total of six. We kept the rustic wood-fire oven in the kitchen, and built the bathroom on top of it.
The courtyard then leads in the back to the 10x5 pool and pool house.
There's a shower/toilet -room in the pool house, and then the bar, barbecue, stereo and table tennis. There is also another table and chairs by the pool.
Finally, if you have had enough with everyone, take yourself off to the bottom of the garden, and sit under the wallnut tree with a nice rosé, and no one will ever bother you...
The entire property is private and shielded from anyone else.
What's in the house..Everything; washing machine, dishwasher, fridges, freezers, mountain bikes, wifi, table tennis table, travel cots, baby monitors, golf clubs, colouring pencils, buckets of toys, corkscrews...
The town and what to do:
Saint-Pancrace is a very small and rural village. In the village is a bar, a church and a bread van that comes through every morning, with a blast of its horn to signal that time. Beautiful Brantôme is ten minutes away ("the Venice of the Perigord" apparently); Nontron is ten minutes away and Perigueux 30 minutes by car. All of them have amazing markets at least once a week, from where most of our food seems to come.
After such a long time there we know all the best restaurants, bars, river beaches, lakes, châteaux, vineyards, and are happy to share them with you in our entertainment folder which you will find in the house.
Can you manage without a car? Short answer...no. There are rental places at the aiports in Bordeaux (2 hours), Bergerac (90 mins), Limoge (2 hours) and at the SNCF in Angoulême (40 mins).
We are a family with three young children, both of us working full-time. I bought the house 16 years ago, pre-marriage, and have restored it over the years. Since we got married, the standards of restoration have significantly improved, especially in places like the kitchen and bathrooms...
We have holidayed there every summer, so this year we feel we should try somewhere new, and have decided for the first time ever to let our house out.
Rachel Harris purchased this cottage in 1999
The property is beautifully located between Brantome and Nontron and with the two houses on our property it is ideal to share holiday with friends and family. The pool and the pool house is the perfect place to spend the afternoon and play with the kids and light a good BBQ.
It's our home from home and where i want to retire before i get too old to enjoy it!
