Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids

In a small hamlet above Savignac-de-Miremont, stands this magnificent farmhouse, enveloped by its own lovingly tended gardens. With its breathtaking woodland and valley views, Clos du Ciel is the perfect rural retreat, yet within easy driving distance of the picturesque market town of Le Bugue, set on banks of the River Vézère.

You’ll feel right at home from the moment you set foot inside this carefully restored and spacious property, with its exposed stonework, sloping beams and elegant furnishings. With its impressive fireplace and open plan living area, it’s the perfect place to relax and unwind. Each of the four good sized bedrooms have been styled individually with homely touches and the characterful features throughout complement the brand new bathrooms and kitchen. This holiday home is immaculately kept and offers a warm and welcoming ambience.

Outside you are greeted with lovely views of the surrounding valleys and forests as you wander down the steps to the wonderful swimming pool, the perfect place to unwind after a days exploring or cool down on a summer’s afternoon lazing on the terrace.

This is a great location near the Vézère river, an area full of pretty villages, vibrant local market towns, fascinating caves, pre-historic discoveries and unspoilt views of stunning countryside. This is the beautiful Vézère valley famous for its prehistoric sites and near to where the CroMagnon was discovered. It’s only 11km to the well loved village of Eyzies with its restaurants, pretty shops and popular National Prehistory museum.

Just a short drive also takes you to the rivers edge where you can easily spend a leisurely morning canoeing on the Vézère in Le Bugue and exploring its weekly market and charming shops. The exquisite town of Sarlat is only half an hour away or head north to the city of Périgueux to sample the delicious black truffle. Days can also be spent simply exploring some of France’s Plus Beaux Villages along the Dordogne such as La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle. Not forgetting the beautiful city of Bergerac with its unmissable Maisons de Vins.

This welcoming home is the perfect place to relax in magnificent surroundings near some of the region’s most captivating sights.

The Dordogne region is known as the valley of 1000 chateaux with endless pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, local markets and spectacular valleys and rivers. Both the Vézère and the Dordogne rivers offer great kayaking and unparalleled views of the countryside.

Le Clos du Ciel is set on a little country road in a residential hamlet in the countryside just above the village of Savignac-de-Miremont. There are lovely vistas across the forests and valley.

Head just 5km north to step back in time to the 100 years war with a tour of the lovingly restored Miremont fortress, and for the more energetic, a climb up the steps to the tower will reward with breathtaking views of the valley.

You can drive south to Le Bugue (9km) fairly easily where you can find pretty patisseries, discover new wines in one of the finest wine caves in the region and dine in excellent restaurants. There is also a good choice of supermarkets, banks and other town facilities and you can hire canoes for a leisurely afternoon on the Vézère river. Don’t miss the bustling market on a Tuesday where you can pick up local produce to cook up a feast to serve back at home.

Within 11km is the village of Eyzies, a very popular place to visit due to its prehistoric attractions in and around the town as well as a weekly market, some nice restaurants and canoeing on the river. Visitors flock to the National Prehistory museum to learn all about this fascinating area.

This is near where the CroMagnon was discovered and as a result the surrounding Vézère valley is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s a very beautiful region surrounded by rivers, hills, cliff and rock formations and quiet countryside. Grotte du Grand Roque is only a ten minute drive from the villa, an amazing natural cave above the Vézère river which can be visited. In the height of the summer the cave is opened on a Monday evening to allow evening visits by torchlight.

The Dordogne and Vézère rivers host a wealth of beautiful villages and towns, many of them classed as France’s Plus Beaux Villages such as Saint-Amand-de-Coly near the Lascaux caves or glorious Monpazier, a bastide town dating back to the 13th century. To the north-west you have the sophisticated small city of Périgueux, famous for its amazing black truffles and to the east you should visit Sarlat with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and amazing restaurants. Not forgetting beautiful Bergerac to the west with its medieval architecture, narrow streets of boutiques and great restaurants as well as the unmissable Maisons de Vins.

Other magical day trips include beautiful Limeuil, where the Vézère meets the Dordogne and 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 a remarkable day out in the Dordogne.

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, golf and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities in the area. Kids will love canoeing along the nearby rivers, the region’s waterparks, visiting the Aquarium du Perigord Noir in Le Bugue, exploring prehistoric caves nearby and historic castles or even a magnificent hot air balloon ride across the stunning region. The more adventurous may enjoy go-karting just south of Périgueux or tree-top activities in the forests near Sarlat.

Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.
