About the property

Ancienne Mairie and Barn

Accommodation for all seasons, the beautiful Ancienne Mairie (Old Mayors house) and converted barn are situated in a lovely elevated village with an 11th Century Norman church. This small village is nestled in the picturesque rolling countryside of the the Pergord Limousin Naturel Parc, less than 5 minutes drive from bakers, grocers, butchers, chemist, bar, restaurants and lakeside sandy beaches and within striking distance of world famous landmarks and attractions such as spectacular Rocamadour, Paderac, the world class vineyards of Bergerac and Bordeaux and 2 hours drive from the ski slopes of Le Mont-Dore in the 'Massif du Sancy'.

The Ancienne Mairie (sleeps 10) and Converted Barn (sleeps 4) can be rented separately or as one unit offering exclusivity and / or more sleeping capacity (sleeping up to 14 in total). Both properties are advertised separately on this site. For more details and availability just click on the relevant tab at the top of this page.

Located 10-15 minutes from towns offering a diverse range of interest. Chalus, an historic town where King Richard (the lion heart) was mortally wounded. St Yreix La Perche, an old market town with it's weekly day and evening markets and origin for the famous Limoges porcelain, also Jumilhac Le Grand with it's stunning Chateaux. Although steeped in history, they offer a range of other facilities such as Banks, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. For the more young at heart or years, nearby villages provide lakes with sandy beaches and an array of outdoor leisure activities, including mini golf, Acro Bois, paintball, swimming and Velo Rail (cycling on the old railway track). The lanes and Natural Park are ideal for rambling, walking and cycling right from the doorstep. If you are willing to travel a little further, the international war memorial town of Oradour-Sur-Glane is about 35 minutes drive. The town has been preserved as a very moving memorial to the villagers massacred by the Nazi’s and has remained unchanged since June 10th 1944. Just 40 minutes drive is the historic and beautiful town of Brantome, known as the little Venice of the Dordogne. This provides a great day out, whether you just want to dine by the river in one of the many excellent restaurants, or take a leisurely 2 to 3 man canoe down the river into Brantome. The more major cities of Limoges and Perigeaux can be reached in about 40 and 60 minutes respectively.

If your interests include fine wine, then Bergerac and Bourdeaux and their world class vineyards as well as other attractions are about 1.5 – 2 hours drive. The famous Dordogne valley containing a stunning list of ‘must see’ sites is about 1.5 hours drive where you can visit (to name just a few), the stunning Pilgrimage site of Rocamadour, the beautiful valley of the 5 chateaux, the stunning underground canals of Padirac and the ancient towns of Sarlat and Domme overlooking the magnificent Dordogne river.
