PERFECT FOR TWO IN A PERFECT VILLAGE!

Limeuil House Rental Photos and Description

Your Chance To Experience Living In A Genuine Périgordian Village Home, With All

'Chez DD' [pronounced 'day-day' in French] is affectionately named after a previous owner of this ancient house - the old village postman, André. He was always known as 'DD' to the villagers, and his old home has been the subject of a ground-up, year-long renovation and modernisation by the new owners.

Now this old village house has a new lease of life, offering guests a totally refurbished blend of modern lifestyle in an incredible character setting. The main Salon, or Living Room, occupies the whole of the First Floor, front-to-back, with French doors opening directly into the rear Garden. At one end is a fully-fitted Kitchen area.

The main Entrance Lobby, which opens directly off the quiet village street, has a stunning local hand-made hardwood staircase which sweeps up to the Living Room - and then on up to a Double Bedroom with an en-suite Shower Room. At Ground level is another double Bedroom with Shower Room - refreshingly cool during the hot summer months.

Outside is a rear Garden with table, chairs and sun loungers - partly shaded, and with a gate onto a side footpath (which provides direct access to First Floor level therefore)

Equipment includes a washing machine - dishwasher - satellite flat-screen TV - wi-fi internet connection - and unlimited use of the telephone to all European and English-speaking countries worldwide (to landlines only, not to mobiles).

This is your chance to experience living in a genuine village house in the heart of rural France. Although you will now have the benefit of today's essentials and luxuries, the ancient stonework and heavy timbers will embrace you in it's history. The warmth of this history provides a romantic and pleasurable experience - wherever you look you will be intrigued by the details of the old 'artisans' work, which connects with all of us today.

The Salon or main Living Room, proves the point - wherever you look are details that arrest the eye, from the impressive traditional stone open Fireplace, arched niches in the stone that used to provide storage, small windows that resist the heat of summer, and the massive French oak ceiling timbers.

A French door opens directly into the rear Garden, and adjoins the Kitchen area - a traditional arrangement in this region, known in French as a 'coin cuisine'. It provides everything you need, a U-shaped working space with built-in cooker, oven and dishwasher. Equipment includes a microwave and toaster.

The First Floor Double Bedroom gets all the morning sunshine, and from the adjoining Landing has a cleverly designed Shower Room with shower cubicle, WC, and vanity unit all built into the timberwork of the main roof.

At Ground Floor level, below the Salon, is another Double Bedroom with adjoining Shower Room. In a recessed alcove is an automatic Washing Machine.

Walking out of your door down the virtually car-free main village road, you are just a stroll away from a choice of restaurants - passing golden-coloured stone cottages, you see the River Dordogne spreading before you, and are soon through the medieval stone archway into the 'Place du Port' next to the river

This is where the outside world begins - the riverside, with it's bar and canoe hire, small shops and a tourist office. Here you can pick up leaflets on all manner of places and events throughout Dordogne - the castles and cafés, horse-riding and hot air ballooning, prehistory and troglodyte homes, foie-gras and gourmet food, farmers markets and marché nocturnes, bastides and bell-walls, chasms and caves, mills and vineyards, cities, towns, villages and hamlets.

You will soon experience the friendliness of the locals, and about their wonderful ability to produce and grow food of extraordinary quality and taste. The Dordogne has another great plus - it is a very compact region, and all the main sites are within not much more than half an hours drive from Limeuil
