A very impressive 17th Century Maison Forte with twin towers, set in a dominant position above the tiny historic village of St Cirq, with gorgeous views across the fields and valley beyond. This property oozes elegance with well proportioned rooms, high ceilings, traditional decor and open fireplaces. Outside the garden is charming - large mature trees provide shade beneath which to enjoy al fresco dining, whilst at the lower level the newly installed pool enjoys the far reaching views.

On the ground floor the heavy oak door leads into a large hallway off which, to the right, is an immense sitting room with light panelling and double French doors leading out to the garden. To the left of the hallway is the impressive dining room which leads on to the kitchen. A small breakfast terrace nestles to one side of the kitchen. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom with WC and basin.

Original oak turned stairs lead to the first floor where a wide corridor leads to two large double bedrooms and one twin bedroom. All bedrooms have parquet flooring, high ceilings, views across the valley and ensuite shower rooms.

A very historic property, set just 5 minutes drive from Le Bugue with all amenities.

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 than 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.

6kms from Le Bugue (supermarkets, banks & restaurants).
