About the property

Peace and quiet are the hallmarks of this home.

Ancient farm of XVIII, forming a small hamlet that you are fully reserved. Recently restored, it offers an ideal location for 2 families or a family with older children. Open view on the valley of Laurence descending to Montignac (Lascaux). In the middle of 9 hectares of meadows and woods available to tenants, it enjoys tranquility. The heated pool (11 x 5 salt hydrolysis) is secure. Many terraces are output to all buildings; some are shaded by large trees. Many garden equipment (tables and chairs, armchairs, chairs, parasols, barbecue) are available.

Situated at the edge of the 'human Valley' and has been named the Vézère valley flowing nearby, Fontpoutreau offers a quiet place to tackle the famous sites of the Périgord. Lascaux is a few kilometers to the city of Montignac directly located on the Vézère. The famous town of Sarlat is a little beyond within 40 km and the many castles of the Dordogne valley are at your door. Between Vézère and Dordogne, you can also choose between different sites or prehistoric caves with paintings. The National Museum of Prehistory is available at Eyzies de Tayac you to trace these main steps of the past.

Amazing house in such tranquil surroundings. Beautifully decorated and fully equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here very comfortably for one week and there were six adults and five teenage kids. We didn't even use the Gite which could have slept four very comfortably. The house sits at the end of its own private track, with the most amazing views of the country side. Extremely peaceful setting but yet only 5 minutes in a car to the nearest shops. Also a great location to explore Montignac and Sarlat towns, trips on the river and caves were all near by. Towels and bedding were all very new and clean. Much thought has gone into this property to make your holiday very pleasant and comfortable. Highly recommend this house for families or friends to spend time together. The pool was a great plus point.

A lovely place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and everything we could have wished for. The rooms were comfortable the bathrooms plentiful, it was well equipped and plenty of places to sit outside to eat or read. Mostly we loved the pool where we spent the best part of the week. We had a wonderful family holiday thank you so much. Sue Colquhoun

Beautiful house, excellent facilities, lovely view

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful farmhouse, the website photos look stunning and the reality is even better! The interior is beautifully designed and definitely has the “wow factor” as you walk in.

The house is perfect for large groups of family or friends. We were 12 adults and found plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, and yet with dining and sitting areas able to accommodate the whole party, inside or outside.

Everything is neat and clean on arrival, and the kitchen, bathrooms and other facilities all work well, especially the two new bathrooms and their attached bedrooms. Furnishings are comfortable, although the white coverings and linen might be challenging for those with young families! The house is well equipped with enough of everything to cater for 12 people, with the oven, fridge and dishwasher all up to the task.

Outside, there is a variety of sitting places for sunshine and shade, the pool is lovely; very clean and with a “refreshing” temperature during our stay. The location is quiet and peaceful, and the views over the valley are lovely at all times of day, but most especially when helped by a glass or two of wine in the evening!

Thenon is a nice village, with an excellent Carrefour – especially the butcher – and the nearby historic village of Ajat offers a wonderful Auberge for drinks or dinner. Further afield, Montignac’s Wednesday market is well worth a visit.

The owner, who lives away, and his local representative were very friendly and helpful, and overall we would happily recommend Fontpoutreau as a great holiday location.

Belle propriété très agréable à vivre.

  • 4 of 5

Petit bémol sur la taille de la cuisine & la taille des housses de couettes trop petites pour pouvoir y mettre les couettes ! Pas très hygiénique ! Avons passé un très agréable séjour tout de même.

Owner's Response: Nous sommes ravis que votre séjour ait été agréable ; c'est bien ce que nous souhaitons pour les vacanciers qui fréquentent notre maison de vacances. Nous avons pris note de la difficulté pour déterminer les “bonnes” housses de couettes correspondant aux différentes tailles des couettes : pour éviter cela les couettes seront mises dans leurs housses avant l'arrivée des vacanciers. Pour ce qui est de la cuisine, elle fait 15 m2. Nous vous souhaitons de nouveaux bons séjours en Périgord pour profiter de tous les atouts de la régions. MH & Ph

My goodness how do you sum up this property?

1. Fantastic

2. Amazing

3. Unbelievable

4. Quite

5. Tranquil

6. Perfect

After a rainy week in Devon in 2016 with our best friends we vowed to have a holiday in the sun in 2017. I was tasked the job of finding a place to go. New Years Eve my wife and I sat down in a cold British pub to find our ideal holiday destination and property.

Somewhere with a good pool, sunshine and space (as there are two families and a few teenagers). We came across a few and ended up deciding on this house which ticked all our boxes.

It is absolutely beautiful, well laid out and space for all. There is a supermarket close by and to be honest, there is also loads to see but we didn't do to much.

We sat by the pool let the kids swim and laugh while we sat watching, eating and drinking (with the odd swim as well). The weather was perfect as well (not Devon). If you are looking at this house now. Book it quickly before I do. We would defiantly love to go back and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who will listen. Many thanks to Marie-Helene & Philippee Lanneau and of course your house keeper Madame Labat who is fantastic. We hope to see you again.
