Appliances include an electric cooker with gas hob, American fridge freezer, microwave, washer-dryer and dishwasher.

Living Room
The main living room is some 30 sq metres but retains a cosy feel with a wood burning stove. It is a lovely cool room in summer but very warm and comfortable in winter. It has a large 42" satellite TV with British television if you fancy a night in after a day in the sun, and a CD player and DVD player/recorder. The French doors open out onto the extensive gardens.

Outside Grounds
The villa is set in 7 acres of meadows and woodland and is the perfect choice for those seeking peace and tranquillity. The 10x5m swimming pool, situated in the south facing back garden, is for the exclusive use of guests and is completely private. The pool is well placed to enjoy sun all day whilst relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. There are plenty of outside eating areas, in the sun and in the shade. There is a large lawn area and neighbouring meadow and woods to explore. At the front of the farmhouse there are ample shady spots to park several cars.

There is a rich variety of flora and fauna in the grounds, including many different types of birds, toads, salamanders, lizards, wild deer and rabbits. The Sweet Chestnut tree has a resident Green Woodpecker nesting, and the Blue and Great tits have made a home of the wall by the table. If you fancy a bit of exercise, there are plenty of established walkways in the surrounding countryside.


This villa is located in a small hamlet of houses 2km away from the beautiful village of St. Pierre de Frugie.  It is found halfway between Limoges and Perigueux, on the edge of the Dordogne, bordering the Limousin.  The farmhouse is set within the Parc Naturel du Perigord-Limousin and surrounded by beautiful countryside._x000D_

Limoges Airport is located approximately 40 minutes away. Calais is a 6-7 hour drive._x000D_

The towns of La Coquille and Chalus - where Richard the Lionheart was fatally wounded - are nearby. The prehistoric caves at Les Eyzies and old towns such as Rocamadour, Bergerac, and St. Emilion are within reasonable distance.

There are several medieval market towns within easy driving distance of the farmhouse.  Thiviers has a traditional farmers' market and Piegut has a market every Wednesday where you can buy fresh fish, oysters, and local produce.  Nontron, the principal town of the Perigord Vert, is not very far away. It has ancient ramparts and a fine square from the 18th century. Visit the chateau at Jumilhac le Grand to experience spectacular views.

The local produce of the area includes foie gras, truffles, cepes, confit, and clafoutis. Guests will find Cep wild mushrooms growing in the farmhouse garden. Local wines cover all budgets from Bergerac to St. Emilion, and Pineau to Cognac. The vineyards in Bordeaux and distilleries in Cognac are well worth a day out.

This villa is 40 minutes from the cities of Limoges and Perigueux. Between them you will find the usual tourist attractions, caves, chateaux, churches, aquariums, war memorials and museums. 

The town of Brantome, known as 'The Venice of the Perigord Vert', offers a lovely day out: perhaps try canoeing in the picturesque setting, followed by a picnic._x000D_

There are plenty of fun days out in the local region, including velo-railing (an unusual experience of biking on train tracks), quad biking, karting, and Acrobois (acrobatics in the woods). There are various swimming lakes in the vicinity of the farmhouse, and plenty of private lakes for fishing.
