Les Bourgézies Hautes is a beautiful Perigordine stone farmhouse, restored to a high standard, all modern conveniences, central heating, air-con.bedrooms. It is surrounded by several acres of its own land, set high up in an idyllic, woodland setting with ample lawned areas around the house, completely quiet but not isolated. From upstairs windows there are views over surrounding woodlands and fields.
The very attractive, fenced, heated,11mx5m pool (1.05 to 1.85 deep) is only yards from the house but disposed in such a way as not to impinge on the centuries-old aesthetic integrity of the house and its setting. It is private and not shared with anyone else.
In summer the villa sleeps 10+2 small children with ample privacy & quiet for all, but thanks to its configuration is also ideal for a couple, a small family or small parties.
The immediate area offers many tourist attractions, restaurants, prehistoric caves with paintings, children's theme parks, water activities for all ages. Le Bugue, 5mins, by car offers all shops, banks, doctors surgery.
