THE TOBACCO BARN

Peyzac le Moustier House Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering house with private pool & 4 self-contained gites with shared pool

A superb 19c manor house with private pool set in a private garden & 4 gites with shared pool, most have wonderful views of La Roque St Christophe. The house accommodates 12 people in 6 bedrooms with 6 en-suite bathrooms. The 4 gites, totally separate from the main house, have all been renovated and furnished to the same level of comfort as the house and share a second swimming pool. The largest, The Tobacco Barn, sleeps 5/6 guests in 3 en-suite bedrooms. The 3 other spacious gites - the Hay Barn, Walnut Store and La Roque Terrace - are each designed for 2 people. Each unit is fully self-contained, with kitchen, lounge, bedroom and en-suite bathroom, and has a private terrace with outdoor dining and BBQ. Alternatively the house and 4 gites would be suitable for large groups of up to 24 people - perfect for parties and weddings. The property is five minutes walk from local restaurant and boulangerie and perfectly situated for all places of interest the Dordogne has to offer.

Le Moustier: Situated between Montignac, famous for the Lacaux cave paintings, and Les Eyzies with its many prehistoric sites, the small village of Le Moustier derives its name from the prehistoric Mousterian era due to an important skull find there. It has a restaurant, bar and a boulangerie and the house is only 5 minutes walk from the village. Les Granges placed on the side of the river Vezere opposite La Roque St Christophe, a limestone cliff face with caves carved into the rock which were inhabited for over 55,000 years from the prehistoric era to the middle ages when over 5,000 people lived on the site. These kilometre long caves are illuminated at night and make a spectacular view from the property.

The surrounding area: Many local towns offer traditional street markets. Montignac in particular hosts an excellent market twice a week, and nearby Rouffignac has a splendid Sunday morning market, where local farmers exhibit freshly picked vegetables, plump ducklings, fresh foie gras and enormous selections of local cheeses. The Perigord is a gourmets paradise and there are many excellent local restaurants offering the best of the areas cuisine.

The property is excellently placed for walking and cycling with all tracks well marked. There are plenty to choose from and range in severity from easy to strenuous!

Other local activities include canoeing on the Vezere or the Dordogne rivers, horse riding and tennis, golf, hot air ballooning and river cruises all within 30 - 40 minutes drive.

The Dordogne Region: The land of a thousand chateaux, the Dordogne or Perigord as it was known, is split into four regions named for their natural features. Noir(black) region of dense forests, Vert(green) spruce trees, Pourpre(purple) vines and Blanc(white) natural limestone. Due to its natural beauty and abundance of medieval towns, chateaux and villages, the Perigord Noir is the jewel in the crown of the Dordogne. The Vezere Valley, with its predominance of prehistoric sites, makes this region one of the most visited. The medieval towns of Sarlat, Les Eyzies and the vibrant city of Perigueux and many traditional villages, each with a character of their own, including Domme, Rocamador, Beynac, Le Roque Gageac, Montignac with the famous Lascaux caves, St Leon sur Vezere, makes the region a real sight seeing experience.

Best location!

  • Submitted: Dec 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We spent a week at this beautiful and centrally located vacation home and loved every moment. Paul and Philippa are terrific hosts, as they were so friendly and helpful, yet allowed us all the privacy we needed. They have several different units, ranging in size, but The Tobacco Barn unit was perfect for us. The beds and bathrooms were comfortable and clean, the kitchen was fully equipped, and the outside area was beautifully maintained.
The property is directly across the River from the Le Roque St. Christopher cliff dwellings, a beautiful sight, and centrally located for all the caves, attractions, restaurants and small towns that abound in the region. Paul and Philippa will help you with choices and reservations, if needed.
Right down the road about a mile is a wonderful campground, where you'll find a nice little pub with a very generous happy hour. Make it a point to stop in.
All in all, a great value and a comfortable home away from home in maybe the most beautiful region in all of France.

Idyllic stay in perfect location

  • Submitted: Sep 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
I almost don't want to write this review - this property is so popular, we'll never get a chance for availability again!! We came to Le Manoir 9 years ago with a group of friends, and armed with good memories, we chose to come back in August as our family of 4. We stayed in the Tobacco Barn, which was perfect: opened out onto the pool, our own dining area with a superb view of the Roq. Paul and Philippa had the perfect touch: informative, inquisitive, but with respect for our privacy as well. It was my husband's birthday during our stay, and Philippa snuck in a cake and candles while we were around the pool! This was just one of many personal touches that made our stay very special.

The house is exceptionally well placed for exploration of a fascinating region of France, and the village has a restaurant and small shop/ bakery within walking distance. An excellent campsite is also nearby which is happy to accept non-campers for happy hour.

We look forward to a future stay in Le Moustier with Paul and Philippa, and can't recommend it highly enough.

Lovely Gite

  • Submitted: Aug 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely gite. Paul and Philippa were excellent hosts, who had great advice for outings for the kids. The gite was beautifully kept and had everything. The kids really enjoyed having the pool at the door! The area is rural but there is a restaurant and boulangarie within walking distance. It is also within easy distance of St Leon, Sarlat and Casteldelnau. Highly recommended.

A perfect slice of Dordogne with walnut sprinkles!

  • Submitted: Jul 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Philippa and Paul. They were incredibly friendly and hospitable. The property was in a perfect location with a fantastic view of the Rock (st Christophe), and in the typical French rural style. We stayed at the Tobacco Barn which has 3 en-suite bedrooms with a well-equipped rustic Gallic kitchen. It has comfortable and cosy seating room, and with double doors leading to a bright sunny and good size swimming pool. The guests staying at the barn also have the exclusive benefit of the alfresco dining area next to pool and overlooking the rock. We used it daily for our breakfast and lunch. They also have a BBQ set as part of the area. The wireless Internet access and tv come as standard.
We were there during the later end of June, and were so lucky as the air was filled with intoxicating scent of honeysuckle (woodbine). The area was lusciously green with Pre-historic feel to it. As mentioned by other reviewers, the location was spot on with easy access to local amenities and restaurants. 10 mins drive to a supermarket in Montignac. It is also not too far from a local goose farm, which also sells foie gras and other delicacies.

Philippa and Paul were such fantastic hosts as mentioned below by others. Our arrival was greeted with a bottle of local red wine, and a bag of deliciously creamy walnuts from the garden. Philippa also brought us her world-famous walnut cake - which we devoured within seconds. They suggested few places to go and even organised the bookings for restaurants.

Despite the weather, we had a fantastic time and really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended for a perfect taste of Dordogne! The unfortunate thing is that we had to go back to work... alas, we must go back there soon, probably with a better weather.

Les Granges is situated in Le Moustier near to Montignac and the beautiful village of St Leon sur Vezere. Close to Lascaux caves, the towns of Sarlat, Beynac, Domme and Perigueux. Directly opposite is La Roque St Christophe, the site of a small Bastide town dating back 55,000 years and inhabited up to the 16th century. This kilometre long cave carved into the rock thousands of years ago, is lit up at night and makes a spectacular view from the property. There are many historic sites dating back to Prehistoric times, caves, grottos, cave paintings, all situated in the most beautiful countryside. This area has been made famous by Jean Auel's Earth's Children books. The sixth and latest one, Land of Painted Caves, was published in 2011. Many of our customers come to stay to see the area linked to these books.

The Perigord is noted also for its gastronomy, foie gras, truffles, confit de canard, wild mushrooms and walnuts! We are surrounded by pretty villages, all with markets at least once a week, giving our renters the opportunity to experiment with the local produce. As well as walking, cycling, canoeing and golf there is a Budhist centre and a Hammam very close so you can either be active or relax!

Other Activities: Canoing, paintballing (30mins), Microlite tuition

Golf: There are four 18 hole courses and three 9 hole courses in the Perigord region. Most are between 35minutes and one hours drive from our property, others are slightly further but well worth the drive!

This is an excellent website which gives you all the information you need. http://www.golf-dordogne-perigord.com/golfs.html

There is also information about a free golf pass which gives you discount on all the courses in the region.

Ski: No Skiing.
