Property Details - Manor House
Located in a charming village at the foot of the local château and just a short drive from all the major sites in the Dordogne valley. This is a magnificent Priory with elegant and comfortable rooms in a preserved historic setting but enjoying the comforts of today. Truly a wonderful historic building dating back a least 500 years.
This C15th residence, was first restored during the Renaissance, is steeped in history. It has 6 en-suite bedrooms, a two room private apartment, a very large well equipped kitchen, 2 large living rooms and a dining room. The suites each have a sitting area and are decorated with style and personality, each with its own en-suite bathroom with quality bathtubs and shower attachments.
There is the possibility to extend the accommodation by approximately 70m² by restoring the Tower end of the building. There is a large brick lined bread oven thought to have served as the village bread oven for a time.
There are panoramic views over the surrounding countryside from the main reception rooms and bedrooms. Recent renovation includes re-wiring, re-plumbing, central heating throughout, including underfloor heating on the ground floor and double glazed windows.
The building is awash with period features, throughout the reception rooms and bedrooms, reflecting the past centuries. The most notable features include the stone spiral staircase, the original flag stone floors, the ornate stone masonry surrounding the windows, the original stone sink and toilet pan chiseled into the 1 metre thick south-west wall, as well as the 3 stone water wells. The majority of rooms face south with large Renaissance windows creating an exceptionally light living space.
The village itself has an epicerie (& depot de pain) plus a restaurant. Nearby are the prehistoric caves of Lascaux and Fond de Gaume (the only cave still opened to the public with polychrome paintings). The marvellously preserved market town of Sarlat is just an hour away, as well as the stunning cliff-hanging village of Roque Gageac.
Room sizes and extra images available upon request. Some furniture is available by separate negotiation.
