Beautiful in a quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as it is in the pictures. It is not that old so still new and fresh. Georg and Petra have put a lot of hard work into restoring and presenting a beautiful property. The location is on the top of a valley surrounded by a handful of properties and so quiet. It is just outside Saint-Pardoux la-Riviere which has a small Auchan which does your needs well and has a petrol station which is handy. Georg and Petra have a house next door and when we arrived there was a beer in the fridge and a bottle of wine as well so a great start to our stay. It has everything you need and we used the outside kitchen more than the inside due to the great weather. The view is great, lots of chairs and sun loungers to get on and relax. Georg and Petra are great owners, extremely helpful and we had a great time. We have been to the area before so know it reasonably well and so lots of castles , caves (Grottes des Villars definitely worth a visit), markets (Brantome - a favourite for us), canoeing and with great wine and food whats not to like. Sarlat-la-Caneda is a couple of hours away and is a great town to visit. We had a great time, book up and you will not be disappointed.

Perfect for young fit people looking for somewhere off the beaten track

  • 3 of 5

At a good distance from the Dordogne river, this is remote and secluded. The outdoor kitchen is great and in the garden there are shady places to sit.

Indoors there is a smart ground floor bathroom and kitchen. The stairs to the bedroom are steep and only safe for the young and fit. Upstairs the pitched roof is too low for you to stand upright. There is a day bed where one person can sleep downstairs.

Klein maar gezellig en mooi huisje.

  • 4 of 5

Gezellig vakantiehuis waar we vriendelijk ontvangen zijn geweest door de eigenaren.

Buiten grote tuin en een overkapping aan het huis met tuinmeubelen en buitenkeuken.

Je kan in de omgeving ook verschillende uitstappen maken.

Wij hebben hebben zeker een super vakantie gehad.

Erholung und Natur

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist sehr schön eingerichtet, es ist alles da, was man braucht. Die Außenküche hat uns besonders gut gefallen.

Das Haus liegt mitten in der Natur, fernab vom Touristentrubel. Für Leute, die Ruhe und Erholung suchen, genau richtig.

Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen! Danke für Ihre Gastfreundschaft, Familie Mertens!

Sehr schönes Haus in ruhiger naturnaher Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und trotzdem ist alles sehr funktional und gut durchdacht. Besonders gut hat uns die Außenküche und der große Garten gefallen. Unter dem alten Kirschbaum lässt es sich wunderbar auf den Liegen bei frisch gekochtem Kaffee ausruhen. Der Blick nach Südwesten über die grünen Hügel des Perigord vert ist nicht nur zum Sonnenuntergang atemberaubend. Die Dörfer und Städte in der Nähe sind sehr sehenswert, es gibt viel zu entdecken (auch im kulinarischen Sinn). Das Anwesen liegt abseits der Touristenströme und ist gerade deswegen für Leute geeignet, die etwas Ruhe suchen und trotzdem in einer der bedeutensten Kulturregionen Frankreichs Urlaub machen wollen. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

The "La Maison au Verger" is located between the villages of Milhac-de-Nontron and Saint-Pardoux-la-Rivière on a hill. Geographically, one is here in the triangle of major cities Limoges, Angoulême and Périgueux - the latter the capital (all between 50 and 60 km). All these cities have airports, the university town of Limoges has an international station, Angoulême has a connection to the French TGV (2.5-hour drive from Paris).

In the 4 km away town Saint-Pardoux-la-Rivière one finds the essentials: bakery and butcher, a small supermarket, a doctor, a post office, a cash machine and a recommended restaurant. The nearest large towns are Nontron (northeast 15 km) and Thiviers (southwest 20 km). Here there are all shops and supermarkets, rewarding weekly markets and banks. The touristic place Brantôme with old abbey is southwest 24 km away.

Besides lounging, sunbathing and good food, there are opportunities for swimming in lakes, hiking, climbing, horse riding, cycling, canoeing and cave of Villars in the immediate vicinity. Small medieval towns and villages with colorful street markets, music and folklore festivals in the summer, fortified castles and the famous caves of Lascaux with cave paintings of early man are some worthwhile destinations. Mushroom pickers come during the late summer and autumn on their costs, for which the Dordogne is known.

The capital Périgueux, with the largest dome church in Europe, combines her typical regional architecture with southern charm. The wine town of Bergerac and tourist attractive medieval little town like Sarlat-la-Caneda Domme or are (100 km) located further south. The Atlantic coast to the west is about 160 km (Royan, Gironde estuary or Ile d'Oléron), Bordeaux in the southwest is 170km away.
