Overview

About the property

Situated on a wooded hillside in the heart of one of France's golden triangles

We invite you to stay in a luxury contemporary house, combined with magnificent stone-built 18th century tower - offering all the requirements for modern simple living.

Set in a tiny hamlet near the ancient village of Paunat with its 9th Century Abbey. The area is known as the golden triangle of the Dordogne due to its huge wealth of tourist attractions: castles, caves and caverns, pre-history, beautiful ancient villages, countryside walks, canoeing and hundreds of restaurants offering 'Perigourdin' delights.

The property consists of a large welcoming entrance hall (26m2), with original beamed ceiling, and antique furniture. Two steps down to a large south-west facing salon (32m2), complete with open chimney and lovely views overlooking an open (semi-tropical) terrace and infinity swimming pool.

The large kitchen and dining room (32m2), directly from the salon includes a large dining table, to seat six. Kitchen is fully equipped with electric double oven, combination microwave, gas hob, large American fridge-freezer (with filtered water & ice machine) and dish-washer.

A winding staircase from the hall leads you up to a large (24m2) bedroom with an original 'cathedral' beamed ceiling (6m high approx). A King-sized bed and two double wardrobes. Double doors lead to luxury granite tiled shower room, with Monsoon shower, WC, washbasin and heated towel rail.

A pair of double doors lead onto a magnificent private roof terrace (32m2) overlooking the entire hillside, the rear terraces and swimming pool. Ideal for breakfast, calm evening drinks or secluded sunbathing.

The ground floor entrance hall also leads through to a Cloakroom (WC and hand-basin), and a separate Utility Room with Washing Machine, Tumble Dryer, Ironing Board etc. A short corridor leads on to the large second, (ground floor) bedroom (30m2). Enjoying a King-sized bed, sofa, wardrobe and chest of drawers. Double doors lead to a sunny gravelled courtyard planted with an array of Mediterranean flora, including an ancient olive tree and stone fountain.

The bedroom's en-suite bathroom has bath (a tub), large walk-in shower, WC, washbasin and heated towel rail.

A gravelled path leads you from the olive tree terrace to the rear garden room, covered, but open to overlook the swimming pool it serves perfectly as a second salon, ideal to enjoy a shady drink or afternoon read. A fully equipped covered outdoor kitchen, complete with barbecue, gas hob, sink , dishwasher and fridge, offers the perfect, easy solution to al-fresco dining on the shaded bamboo terrace situated within a few steps of the pool.

The south-facing heated infinity pool (20 May-22Sept 2017) overlooks the beautiful oak valley, and includes a large terrace for sunbathing. A HiFi and hidden speakers enable you to enjoy music from your ipod. There is also a warm outdoor shower , just to complete the magic !

(Pool Dimensions: 6m x 5m - 1.5m depth constant heated 28degrees between 20th May-22nd September 2017. ) We believe the pool is not suited for families with very young children (2-8 years old), but babies are accepted.

The garden to the north, accessed from the salon, offers a shady pergola and formal canal with fountain. The property has ample parking with two separate parking areas for 4+ cars and is situated on the edge of a small hamlet of six houses.

Why Adrian Snell chose Perigord Noir

Set at the end of a sleepy country track which leads into the forest. This lovely combination of authentic pigeon tower with its rustic beams and contemporary extension, with all modern facilities. Superb outdoor facilities, covered verandah, 'semi-tropical' dinner terrace, outside kitchen, heated infinity pool and surrounding sunbathing terrace with heated outdoor shower. Two beautiful bedrooms, (one with cathedral style ceiling) and large private roof terrace. Ample parking. Extensive gardens and private woods of over 2 acres.

What makes this house unique

Within 35 minutes of touching down at Bergerac airport you can immediately find yourself relaxing at Le Vezou.

Why here? The beautiful Dordogne River is within a 10 minute walk with its ancient chateaux and hilltop villages, the stunning scenery of the Vezere Valley with its rocky landscapes and plunging valleys, the amazing fortified villages to the south and beautiful towns such as Sarlat. All are within 30 minutes drive from the house and when you have enjoyed the region then simply unwinding around the pool at the end of the day is unforgettable.

.

In a world of chaos, Le Vezou gives a unique tranquillity and a moment to reflect and enjoy the sun's warmth and nature....

Lovely house and setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing week. The house is well equipped and well located for the sights of the Dordogne. The outside kitchen and barbecue area is great for enjoying the late afternoon and evening sun.

Adrian was very helpful in explaining the workings of the house and pool, responded quickly to our queries and had good recommendations for activities.

Perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Le Vezou and can recommend it 100%. The house is tastefully decorated, the kitchen is fully equipped, the garden is a dream and the bedrooms (both with own bathroom) are just perfect. Adrian is a very attentive and considerate; always helpful if needed. We would love to come back one day.

Perfect home

  • 5 of 5

Le Vezou is an absolutely fantastic place to spend a quiet, chilled time in glorious countryside yet not far from a great restaurant (Chez Julien) and a good small town for all you need (Le Bugue). The house worked well for us, our dogs and my elderly mother - safe on all levels, good facilities and the pool is great. Added to this Adrian is really friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. A real home from home. Beautiful interiors, very clean and an idyllic setting. Adrian very helpful and ensures that this property is as advertised. Cannot recommend highly enough. Paunat is a lovely village with amazing abbey and a restaurant. Ideal base to explore the many beautiful medieval towns & villages. Weather was superb so also enjoyed using the pool and outdoor areas. Just perfect.

Beautiful home in a lovely part of the world

  • 5 of 5

Can't say much more than the other reviewers. This place is stunning. Beautiful old property that has been renovated to a very high standard with all the mod cons. Bedrooms, living spaces, kitchen and bathrooms are all well appointed and clean. It was so peaceful as you're surrounded by woodland and it's a great place to either explore the area or just to sit and relax around the pool. Adrian is a lovely guy and very proud of his home and every possible detail has been well thought out. Would recommend this place to anyone and we are already thinking about when we can return.

Périgord is referred to as the ‘Land of 1001 Castles’. The construction of castles in the Dordogne Valley began in the 11th and 12th centuries and most were later enhanced during the Hundred Years’ War between the kingdoms of France and England. The other river valley in the region, the Vezere, is the birthplace of mankind, with a wealth of prehistoric caves, with sculptures and paintings including the world famous 'Lascaux'.

To the south beautiful medieval fortified (bastide) towns with markets squares, such as Monpazier. The region is also world famous for its production of Truffles and Foie Gras.
