Overview

Pool

In a beautifully rural region, in a charming little hamlet, lies the characterful Maison Champetre. Surrounded by wonderful landscapes, you can appreciate the tranquillity yet you are only half an hour from Bergerac and some of the Dordogne’s most treasured villages.

This traditional stone farmhouse has been restored sensitively and perfectly featuring an original dovecote as well as other timeless features such as wood beamed ceilings, low wooden doors and exposed stone walls. The home has been furnished with modern comfort in mind whilst remaining classic in style. The open-plan living-dining room and kitchen are particularly impressive whilst there’s an air or romance in one of the bathrooms with a beautiful roll-top bath.

Outside the swimming pool awaits you on long summery days or you may prefer to find a quiet spot under the ancient trees for an afternoon reading in the shade.

There is a choice of terraces for dining al-fresco with friends and family with views of the verdant gardens around you. You can also explore the 25 hectares of private grounds made up of forests and glades, perfect for a contemplative walk enjoying the surroundings.  Kids can create adventures in the little wood cabin or enjoy a game of table-tennis in this delightful home.

Wine-lovers will appreciate the built-in wine cooler and wine cellar in the house, a perfect excuse to visit some of the wonderful wineries in the region. Beautiful Bergerac is just 30 minutes by car where you can discover the city’s Maisons de Vins whilst the charming hilltop wine-town of Saint-Émilion makes for an idyllic day out.

There are of course countless medieval villages to explore such as lovely Limeuil, where the Vézère meets the Dordogne or picturesque village of Tremolat with its lovely viewpoint over the river. Not forgetting the unmissable city of Périgueux (35km), famous for its amazing black truffles and amazing restaurants.

The Dordogne region is a true haven for nature and sports lovers from spectacular golf-courses to watersports at nearby lakes or canoeing down the river, not to mention the hiking and cycling opportunities nearby. That said, with such remarkable surroundings it may be hard to leave your little paradise at Maison Champetre.

Set in a little hamlet north-east of Bergerac, Maison Champetre is surrounded by 25 hectares of grounds with forests and glades where you go for some lovely peaceful walks when not relaxing in the beautiful gardens. There is a small village with a bakery, convenience store and hotel-restaurant within 6km and larger supermarkets in Vergt (13km) to the north or towards Bergerac.

Beautiful Bergerac (24km) is just under half an hour by car, where you can explore its medieval architecture, pretty boutiques and high-end restaurants as well as the unmissable Maisons de Vins.  Wine-lovers can also sample some sweet wines at nearby Château de Monbazillac (30km) just south of the Dordogne river or head to the charming hilltop wine-town of Saint-Émilion (83km) for an idyllic day out.

Heating east along the Dordogne, there are countless medieval villages to explore in the surrounding region such as the picturesque village of Tremolat (30km), near the Cingle de Tremolat viewpoint and lovely Limeuil (37km), where the Vézère meets the Dordogne. Here you can paddle by the river beach or enjoy some fine views from Parc Limeuil after wandering through the delightful village. In addition, head to La Roque Gageac, Château de Beynac or Castelnaud-la-Chapelle for idyllic days out by the Dordogne River, all just over an hours drive.

Not forgetting some of the unmissable larger towns and cities such as sophisticated Périgueux (35km), famous for its amazing black truffles and Sarlat (66km) with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and amazing restaurants.

There are of course some wonderful food markets to visit across villages and towns of the Dordogne including Bergerac on a Wednesday and Saturday morning, Beaumont-du-Périgord (32km) on a Tuesday and Saturday morning and a little further south to the incredibly charming Issigeac (32km) on a Sunday morning.

The whole region is a true haven for nature and sport lovers alike offering a wide array of outdoor activities, from horse-back riding, to tennis, mountain-biking, golfing and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities in the area. Just 12km away is the Parc de Loisirs de Neufont in the forests where you can hire pedalos on the lake or enjoy waterslides. The region also boasts prehistoric caves and historic castles to explore whilst the more adventurous may enjoy go-karting near Bergerac or tree-top activities in the forests north of the Dordogne.
