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.
