'Naudoux' is an old stone farmhouse of great character ideally located in deepest country with several villages 6 km away. It has a fantastic 11m/5m salt and sand swimming pool, far reaching views and only limousin cows as your neighbours. Sleeps 7 with bathroom, shower room and extra loo. A large sitting room with an open fire next to a fully equipped kitchen, both lead onto a large sunny verandah providing further space for sitting and eating and looking on to the rolling views. Lovely walks and plenty of medieval villages to visit and Guaranteed privacy positioned off a rarely used road. Ample parking.
I went to Noudoux in May and had the most heavenly time there with a bunch of friends. The house is stunning, set deep in the country side, beautiful views, yet only a short distance from local villages and markets. I've actually been three times. When its sunny and warm the poolside day is a dream, and when its not, the big fire inside keeps the house warm and cozy. The house has an altogether charming character. Its the perfect place to go with some friends and cut off and relax.
I couldn't recommend Naudoux more highly, especially if looking for peace and tranquility and a feeling of escape. It's in such a beautiful setting - hours could be spent sitting on the balcony admiring the views. Or indeed walking in the hills that surround it. The house is full of character and very comfortable. A huge fire for chilly evenings. I can't wait to go back!
Naudoux is a
real treat with beautiful views across the valley. We were a group of friends and we had 5 days of eating fantastic food from the local market, swimming in the pool and going for long walks. There is masses to see in the area and then you come home to big fires and a very comfortable house. This is a house I would enormously recommend, I can't wait to go back.
The moment you arrive at Nadoux you just know it's going to be a lovely place to be.You walk up the steps to the verandah and behold the stunning views over beautiful countryside.Inside the house is very well equipped and comfortable,lived in and homely.we ate all our meals out on the verandah,in the evenings we would watch the deer come out to graze on the hillside,sometimes as many as seven or eight,we also saw a fox on a couple of occasions,with this in mind take binoculars with you.
The surrounding area is a pleasure to explore with several of the beaux village within easy distance,Curemont is an easy walk and a lovely village to explore.The local town of Meyssac is our favourite shopping venue with a really good market and shops also not a bad place to have a relaxing beer or two.
The four of us really enjoyed experiencing the local wines, be adventurous and give them a go,you will not be disappointed.
The pool area is great, a nice big pool to lounge around and relax,and when you get too hot there is plenty of shade,just perfect.
We really enjoyed our stay at Nadoux and hope to make many more visits,it is a beautiful part of France,thankyou.
After a 7 hour flight from Philadelphia to de Gaulle and a 5 hour drive to Naudoux, we arrived at our 'home' for the next two weeks. A better place to decompress could not be imagined.
The first week our daughter and son-in-law were with us. What a joyous time we had visiting many quaint villages steeped in history, and most significantly, sitting on the verandah allowing the pastoral scene envelop us with a sense of peace and serenity.
The second week when the weather turned cooler and cloudy we visited a few additional charming villages coming home to our resident cows and allowing them to show us how to be peaceful and contented while the rest of the world whizzes by.
We visited the fruit and vegetable market at Sarlat. The lunch we had at the Presidial was superb. The many medieval villages we visited -- Beaulieu sur Dordogne, Loubressac, TurenneGimal les cascades, Arnau-pompadour, Autoire, to name just a few -- were charming each in their own way. Les jardins du manoir d'Erignac were spectacular.
For a special farewell with Beth and Bill we dined at Relais St Anne in Martel. The food was exceptional and well worth the price.
Each time we drove up the drive we felt that we had arrived home. The location is perfect, the name itself giving off a feeling of warmth emanating from its charm creating a special atmosphere for us to begin our retirement years.
This is a delightful house to stay in, and a really interesting part of rural France, which is great for walks. We visited in September and had mixed weather, but little stopped us enjoying the all weather veranda and the biggest swimming pool we have ever experienced.
If you want a quiet retreat, this is for you. You are surrounded by fields and cows and little else, and the real treat is the beautiful light that streams into the house at sunrise. If you taking a large family and friends, (not that I would want to do that) there is plenty of room to spread out so you are not on top of one another. Having space like this is great.
You are a 45 minute walk away from the nearest large community which is the historic hill top town of Curemonte - if you are an artist you wont want to move from here. The only cafe there was unfortunately closed for holidays, but during the summer I cant think of anything nicer than walking there early evening, enjoying good food and wine, and walking back.
Meyssac is a delightful market town about 15 minutes away, and the boulangerie in the market square sells the best bread for miles. Do go there on market day and have a drink in the sports cafe, and watch the locals shuffle about their business. On the Friday market they have an excellent fish stall.
We did not visit any restaurants, mainly because they could not compete with the delight of sitting on the veranda in the evenings, and because we love to cook.
The house keeper, Fiona, who lives the other side of Curemonte, took good care of us, supplied us with some DVD's, and is a very interesting to talk to.
I would highly recommend this property. i would say that the initial description we read about this house understated its charms.
Situated between the charming market towns of Meyssac and Vayrac with bars, restaurants and twice weekly markets. 5km from the medieval village of Curemonte and 15 minutes drive to Beaulieu sur Dordogne , a busy market town on the banks of the Dordogne River. The house is within easy reach of several chateaux, caves and of course the Dordogne River. To the west is Collonges-le Rouge, the 'city of little castles', and Turenne, a 15th century village whose high pitched roofs surround two castles from which the foothills of the Massif Central can be seen. To the south and east is the Dordogne valley, with a wealth of villages such as Loubressac, Autoire, Carennac and Martel. The Chateaux of Castelnau, Belcastel and Montal are all close by, while the citadel of Rocamadour is only 30 minutes drive away. For those wishing to explore a little further afield, the world famous Lascaux caves can be reached in an hour, along with the many other attractions of the Lower Dordogne area.
Other Activities: kayaking on the Dordogne
