Type of Property

Country House


7 hectares


12m x 6m


An immaculately renovated and maintained property set in a very quiet location in the hills above Belvès. With gorgeous views to the valley beyond, large infinity pool and loggia with jacuzzi the owners currently run a very successful gite and B&B business (classed at 4* by the Périgueux Tourist Office).

The ensemble of buildings is grouped around an immense gravelled courtyard with large Catalpa tree and combines characterful honey coloured stone with a mix of contemporary and antique fixtures and fittings. Re-wired throughout for the rental properties, and with wireless state of the art technology in the main house, this property is a rare find in terms of the hand worked finishings and the incredibly high quality evident in every aspect - whether internal or external. Double glazing and substantial insulation throughout mean the property has an impressive energy rating.

Implanted in 7 hectares of prairie and woodland, with two sources within the grounds, the owners have carefully crafted the space surrounding each property to provide a totally private experience of outdoor dining and relaxing space for each guest room. Outside lights illuminate the pathways between the buildings as well as around the pool and the jacuzzi/loggia area.

This property is based in the Dordogne (often referred to by its ancient name "The Périgord"). Although times may have changed over the years the beautiful Dordogne landscape, in one of the most beautiful areas of France, continues to offer something to amaze and delight everyone. This ancient land, deep in the heart of sunny south-west France, is perfect holiday country; a magical place that will reward all those who choose to explore it.

The Périgord Noir, where the vast majority of our properties are located, is the 'Jewel in the Crown' of the Dordogne for here, in the triangle formed between the rivers Vézère and Dordogne, you will find the greatest concentration of natural wonders and historic sites, and the loveliest stretches of both rivers. The area is bounded by four famous towns and this property is well situated within this boundary - Sarlat, a medieval treasure house; Périgueux, a thriving and sophisticated small city; Bergerac, shippers of wine since the Middle ages and Monpazier, an extraordinarily well preserved bastide built by King Edward I in 1285.

Less then 1 hour from Bergerac airport, 1.5 hours from Brive airport, 2.5 hours from Bordeaux airport/TGV station and 2.5 hours from Toulouse airport.

4km from the village of Belvès (supermarkets, bank and restaurants). 8kms from Siorac (general shopping, supermarket & restaurants); 13kms from the market town of St Cyprien (supermarkets, bank & restaurants).
