A charming and very romantic old stone house. The owner has lovingly devoted his time to a complete and high quality renovation leaving no stone unturned. The property is set in a tiny village within walking distance of a local restaurant and is just ten minutes by car to the historic bastide towns of Beaumont and Monpazier (both with amenities and summer night market), and Cadouin with its impressive Abbey, ancient covered central square and small shops/restaurants.
On arriving at the property the honey coloured walls skirt the garden and provide off-street parking at the side of the house. Passing through the wrought iron gate one accesses the delightful grassy courtyard and garden which encircles the property.
The antique entrance door leads into the very well equipped and uniquely decorated kitchen/breakfast room with wooden work surface, an Aga, double antique crockery cupboard, terra-cotta floor tiling, limed beams, glazed antique tiled splash-back and quality appliances.
To the right of the kitchen a stone opening leads through to an inner hallway decorated in attractive Farrow & Ball colours which gives access into an elegant and cosy formal dining room with a mix of exposed stonework and traditional wall coverings, terra-cotta floor tiles and limed beams. A glazed door leads out to a grassy area with charming dining table and chairs.
Also in this part of the property is a shower room with walk-in shower and WC and laundry area
Returning to the hallway a wooden staircase leads up to a very spacious and comfortably furnished sitting room with large sofas, open fireplace, wooden limed floor, huge exposed beams, very elegant wooden green paneling and an impressive collection of diverse artwork. A glazed door leads out to the garden. A second sitting room with large screen TV and piano is also located on this floor as well as an attractively presented twin bedroom with a short flight of steps leading up to doors which give out to the side garden.
From the first floor main sitting room a further solid wood staircase leads up to the second floor and landing with seagrass carpet, off which are two very pretty double bedrooms each with ensuite bath/shower room with WC.
Throughout the property are countless examples of the owner’s passion for artwork, artistic ornaments and sculptures offering something truly unique and which create a wholly welcoming ambiance.

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.
In the village Montferrand du Périgord. 25 Minutes from Bergerac airport, 1.45 hours from Brive airport, 2.5 hours from Bordeaux airport/TGV station and 3 hours from Toulouse airport.
