Overview

Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

The owners of Maison Pierre had a clear and simple plan: to create beautiful holiday homes in the heart of the Périgord Noir where castles, caves, market towns, vineyards and restaurants offer endless delights for the young and old.

The result is three elegant stone villas, full of traditional and authentic features as well as modern touches and comforts. Each villa has been cleverly designed to have its own private space and beautiful views of the countryside, and benefits from its own private, heated swimming pool.

Maison Pierre is a beguiling blend of old stone, wood and glass, with large windows which beautifully frame views over the pool, the large private wooded park and the valley. Indoors there are three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a spacious and inviting open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge area. Outdoors the stunning wooden terrace surrounds the pool and provides a beautiful space for relaxing and eating alfresco both during the day and evening. It enjoys lovely views over the parkland.

As far as settings go it would be difficult to find a more enchanting location. This is one of France’s Les Plus Beaux Villages, surrounded by countryside and woods and between beautiful Sarlat and Lascaux. A traditional Dordogne village of typical Périgordian houses, slate tiled roofs and golden stone walls, with at its centre, its majestic church, alongside the ruins of the original abbey. Amongst its places to visit are also the village’s original communal lavoir and bread oven and the restored tobacco barn. A charming village hotel houses a bar-cafè where light meals are available and the newly-opened tea shop also sells fresh bread and croissants. Coly and Montignac for local and gastronomic restaurants, as well as shops are just 5 – 10 minutes away.

Guests are spoiled for choice as far as attractions go within a mere 15 to 30-minute drive away; Sarlat (22km) is 25 minutes by car, the caves at Lascaux are just a 15-minute drive away, troglodyte villages just 30 minutes and Terrasson and many famous châteaux just 15 minutes away.  Many of the Dordogne’s beautiful villages are within easy reach. 

Relaxing and memorable holidays with family and friends are guaranteed at Maison Pierre, where a clever and sympathetic restoration has resulted in a beautiful home-away-from-home, guests come back to year after year.

Here you are just a few steps away from a village which is known as one of France’s Les Plus Beaux Villages, yet still in a beautiful rural location surrounded by countryside and woodland. The traditional Dordogne village has typical Perigordian houses, slate tiled roofs and golden stone walls with a majestic church in the centre, alongside the ruins of the original abbey. You can also visit the village’s original lavoir and bread oven and restored tobacco barn.

You will find more restaurants, shops and a supermarket in the nearby town of Montignac (10km) which is located on the banks of River Vézère. You can explore the historic town, admire the beautiful houses with balconies on the river bank and visit the Château.  The Lascaux caves, just outside Montignac, are also a highlight of this part of Dordogne plus there is a wealth of activities in this area from hiking paths across the stunning countryside to canoeing along the Vézère.

Other highlights along the river include Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère (20km), another Plus Beaux Villages, Château and Gardens of Losse (15km) and the beautiful Limeuil (45km), 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.

Sarlat (22km/25mins by car) is one of the most remarkable towns in the region with a maze of medieval narrow streets to explore, lovely squares and an interesting cathedral. The town has some fantastic restaurants and there are many opportunities to sample some of the fine Perigord truffles and foie gras that the town is so famous for. The town can get busy during the summer months but you can usually avoid the crowds by heading there early and enjoying the morning light. Combine the day with a visit to Château de Beynac (31km) and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle (40km) for a remarkable day out in the Dordogne.

There is a wealth of activities in the area for all ages with horse-riding and golf both within half an hours drive and a number of well-known hikes for all abilities through the glorious countryside nearby. Kids will love the Dinosaur Park (20km) or the Aquarium du Perigord Noir (40km) and the more adventurous may enjoy go-karting just south of Périgueux or tree-top activities in the forests near Sarlat.

Owner Profile

How Long have you owned the property?
We bought it in 2008, over 10 years.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
We had a family property for 3 centuries in the village next door and spent years revising this beautiful farm. We fell in love with the dream location. Being in one of the most beautiful villages of France in the middle of one hectare surrounded by beautiful rocks is incredible. Peace, serenity and beauty.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
When we took up this project of restoration with the old respecting the purest traditions, we had a wall of constraints. First the architect of the buildings of France, the prefecture, the town hall ..... and the village. We decided to redo two houses by undoing all the existing to redo the same by adding modern comfort. The professionals, told us that for such a project, it took 2 years. We gave them 9 months. And exactly 9 months later our first tenant arrived.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
JUDITH PRICE: Ms. Judith Price founded AVENUE Magazine in 1975 and sold it in 2001. She is currently founder and President of the National Jewelry Institute, the country's first fine jewelry museum. In 2011 was appointed to the rank of Chevalier in the National Order of the Legion of Honor by the President of the Republic for her “exemplary personal commitment to the culture of France.” We received a phone call one day from an American looking for a house in Dordogne for the following summer. She gives us an appointment 2 months later telling us that she would arrive from NY and leave the same day. She wanted to be sure she was not wrong in her rental.
I explain to her that it is necessary to arrive in Paris, then to take a train until Brive la Gaillarde and from there to rent a car to come to the village. Two months later, we see Judith Price arrive, who stays half an hour and tells us she loves totally the houses but she is in a hurry because she has a plane the next morning for NY. She has returned 4 consecutive years and knows the whole family. We have even been invited to ceremony of Legion of Honor in Paris.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should….

Really do?
Go down the Vézère river or the Dordogne in canoe or kayak.

Really ea
t?
Truffle butter and poached foie gras.

Really see?
See the caves of Lascaux at 5 kms from the house.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property on the area? Come out of July and August to make the most of the region. There are more than 100 castles, gardens and caves to visit within a radius of 30 kms. There are heavenly restaurants, beautiful roads ... it's even better in spring or autumn and even at Christmas with the activity around the truffle.

Reviews

  • Worth the price

    Created on 24/12/2017

    Our second stay in this charming Villa in a beautiful remote village with its own cathedral. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this idyllic part of the Dordogne. Surrounded by forests and mountains, this villa has everything included even a charming and helpful custodian who is responsive to your every needs. We went back with friends because we had such a wonderful time the first time and were so impressed with the villa and the countryside. It is remote and peaceful, truly one of the most beautiful parts of France. You won't be sorry to stay in this villa with friends or relatives. Its not cheap, but well worth the price for what you get

  • Facilities of a high standard

    Created on 23/12/2017

    From the minute we arrived we were blown away by this immaculately presented property. The facilities were of a high standard and the pool was an added bonus. The views from the property were perfectly tranquil and picturesque. Just a moments walk into the pretty village. The property was perfect for us as a family and our two girls aged 14 and 19 loved the decor and feel of their chosen bedrooms. Overall we considered this to be the perfect family retreat.

  • Special birthday celebration

    Created on 29/09/2017

    Four friends celebrating special birthdays and we wanted a special place to stay - we were not disappointed at all with Maison Pierre. The house was perfect, the host met us and made us feel at home, answering all our questions and readily available for a couple of minor queries on the first day after which we had everything we needed. The village was very quiet and we enjoyed lovely walks through the woods and peaceful times by the pool. Lots of lovely places to visit within 20-60 minutes drive and the local markets sell superb fish, meats, fruit & veg. We would recommend staying here to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, quality house to stay and peace and quiet.

  • We warmly recommend this destination!

    Created on 25/08/2017

    Exceptional house by the quality of its decoration but also of its furniture (e.g. TV in each bedroom). Very appreciable is the view on the large panorama on the fields from your bed as you wake up. The village is a scenery out of our century and the house is one of its characters. The welcome was sympathetic, the "room-service" irreproachable. We warmly recommend this destination!

  • An upmarket property

    Created on 28/06/2017

    This was a very upmarket property. Beautifully equipped and furnished. The heated pool and air conditioned house made it so easy to cool off when the temperature was in the 30s. The adjoining meadow was accessed from the terrace and it was easy to keep an eye on the children. The Village is a delight and worth exploring. We will go back!
