About Cathy Shepard
I love to travel and discover new horizons but I especially appreciate coming back to my family home in Dordogne. Nowhere have I found such calm and authentic culture.
Cathy Shepard purchased this House in 1907
Why Cathy Shepard chose Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Le Puy Chapon is my family home but I cannot live there for the time being. I treat it as my own home and have added modern aspects to the property while maintaining it's authentic side. I hope to provide you with the same love of nature and old stone dwellings while, at the same time, share the new things like a huge heated pool, good TVs, new appliances and comfortable beds.
What makes this House unique
The area is populated by pleasant people mainly native to this region. The nights are starry with no city lights to distract. There are lots of interesting chateaux such as Hautfort to visit and historical caves to see including Lascaux, the most famous of all. Walking in the countryside around the house is fantastic, but you can go horse riding, play golf or visit local markets in Excideuil and shop in Perigueux.

Beautiful old house full of character would be interesting to know more of the history, everything you need in the kitchen bedrooms worked well with older children in the group, pool was perfect not overlooked and plenty of shaded areas when needed, would definitely recommend this property
Fantastic guests and excellent personal contact. Hope to see you and your family next year!
A very peaceful house with beautiful pool and views
The house is tucked away at the end of a quiet hamlet and is very peaceful, with a gorgeous pool with wonderful views. The house itself is cool and comfortable with plenty of space.
There is a double bedroom, a single bedroom, a room with twin beds, and a narrow double bed, so the house really sleeps 6, and only 7 if there are 2 couples.
The single beds in the room with twin beds are attractive old wooden beds but not very comfortable and more comfortable beds would be a good improvement. The only other potential drawback is that there are lots of steps up and down between the different levels in the house so this would not be a great house for parents with toddlers!
But there was always plenty of piping hot water, the linen was lovely and clean, everything was in good working order, The pool was divine, the deck loungers very comfortable, there is a good awning for eating in the shade beside the pool & there is even a poolside shower. A lot of thought has gone into making this very attractive and welcoming. We loved it and certainly hope to return.
Thank you for your comments. They are very much appreciated.
Cadre et maison charmants, magnifique Piscine. Confort rustique de la maison.
Très agréable séjour familial.
Maison de famille accueillante, vivante dans une region pleine de charme.
Une seule vraie salle de bains 🛀� opérationnelle, beaucoup d’escaliers pour accéder d’une pièce à l’autre, isolation et literie un peu rudimentaire à l’étage ... pour les bémols.
Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine
