About Harris Raphael

Owned by an English Family now living and working in the Dordogne, we fell in love with the unique charm of Domaine Le Ruisseau when looking for our little bit of heaven in Southern France.

Harris Raphael purchased this chateau / country house in 2002

Why Harris Raphael chose Fleurac

Domaine Le Ruisseau, set in a magnificent 50 acre private estate, is one of the most beautiful and tranquil locations you could imagine, yet very close to local amenities and all the area's main attractions. It is a perfect place to relax, a real 'swallows and Amazons' paradise for children....and a haven for their parents and grandparents!

The wonderful 14x7M heated, chlorine Free swimming pool and activities complex is a focal point of summer activities, and in the autumn winter period Chestnut Cottage is a cosy property with wood burning fires and central heating

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Some three years after we had undertaken major restoration and renovation work fully sympathetic with the local style, using traditional materials and techniques, Domaine Le Ruisseau was recognised as one of the most beautiful properties in the Dordogne in a visitor survey.

Chesntut Cottage has the special charm of being set in the heart of such a magnificent private estate surrounded by woods, stream, boating lake, and gardens, and yet being close to all local amenities and activities.

The 300yr old spacious and warm property is made entirely from stone, wood and materials from the estate itself and other local sources.

Idyllic cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our second two-week stay at this fabulous property with our two boys. The property is set in a tranquil valley and provides excellent, spacious accommodation and great facilities. The large pool is as good as it gets (chlorine free and immaculately maintained). Despite the wealth of tourist attractions and activities in the surrounding area the cottage and estate are so pleasant it's tempting to stay put! Our boys were never short of things to do. The owners are delightful hosts.

Beautiful setting and accommodation

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful relaxing week here. The description of the property is very accurate. Very comfortable accommodation, helpful hosts, great facilities (pool, games and pets to keep the kids entertained!) and a beautiful setting that is conveniently located close to all of the region's tourist attractions (e.g. Sarlat markets, canoeing, prehistoric paintings). Our family enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others. We would stay there again.

Luxurious house on beautifully landscaped property

  • 5 of 5
The owners have maintained the bucolic spirit of the original farm while turning former barn spaces into a modern, comfortable, spacious house with every convenience. The house is perfectly situated in the midst of the prehistoric sites, flourishing weekly markets, bastide towns, excellent restaurants and more chateaux than you'll have time to explore. The pool is immaculate, the plantings varied; it is a peaceable kingdom where the dogs, cats and chickens get along with each other as well as with the guests. Harris and Victoria are happy to assist visitors; we particularly enjoyed Harris' tour of the caves on the property where members of the Resistance had hidden. Those with no French will be delighted to have English-speaking hosts who know the area so thoroughly.

Peace and Beauty

  • 5 of 5
What a pleasure to spend a week at Chestnut Cottage! The place is idyllic. Harris and Victoria have done a splendid job of restoring the gite, and the gardens are lovely. Beautiful as the photos are, they don't do the place justice: wide fields of grass, a large swimming pool set across a pleasant lawn from the house, a pretty stream, friendly and well-trained dogs (they never come inside the house, even if you leave the door open!), picturesque chickens wandering around. The local noises are morning birdsong and evening frog choruses. The house's thick stone walls keep it pleasantly cool, the kitchen is well equipped... really ideal all round.

The owners are friendly and responsive, and live in an adjacent house; other than that it feels pleasantly isolated, even though it's only fifteen minutes' drive from Les Eyzies.

Chestnut Cottage is set in the “Périgord Noir”, the heart of the Dordogne, with easy access to the region’s chateaux, rivers and market towns.

The house is five minutes from the town of Les Eyzies, a major site of prehistory. It is two minutes to the nearest restaurant, and five minutes to a bakery, pharmacy, shops and a small supermarket.

Within 15 minutes are the towns of Le Bugue and St-Cyprien, with large supermarkets and a range of other facilities.

This is an ideal spot for anyone who enjoys exploring. From the house, one can enjoy miles of walks through forests and countryside, by rivers, lakes and medieval villages.

Among the sports available locally are golf, canoeing, tennis, mountain biking, horse riding, fishing, hot air ballooning, and climbing.

• Eating – The Périgord is one of France’s true gastronomic delights……Foie Gras; Walnut salad; Magret de Canard (duck); Truffles; Smoked Salamis. Cêpes……
