Enjoy peace and tranquillity in spacious and comfortable setting.
Set within spacious grounds covering 13 hectares of landscaped plantings and woodland. Near picturesque Limeuil, on the River Vezere, tributary of the Dordogne with restaurants, a canoe centre and river bathing. Only 37km from Bergerac airport.
The broad oak staircase was designed for horses to be led upstairs to safety from 16C horse thieves. Open fireplaces are in both formal dining room and comfortable Salon which has a feature tower card room, also a spacious study with television.
The large swimming pool (12m x 6m) is on a sun-soaked terrace within planted parkland. Next to a pigeonnier a hard tennis court overlooks the valley.
"I just wanted to write and say what a fantastic week we had at FR108. The house is stunning, as are the grounds, and it fitted our two families perfectly. We loved the area, and had a great time canoeing down the Dordogne, visiting various beautiful villages and gardens, as well as the stunning caves at Proumeyssac. Particular mention to Vivienne who cooked the most delicious meals for us, and Alexi, who looked after us brilliantly. Thanks again and all best wishes."
What we think: A beautiful setting in this fascinating part of France dominated by the River Dordogne with lots to see and do, and excellent staff to look after you. A good house for grown up house parties although children are welcome too and will enjoy the spacious grounds.
