Description of Property: The old stone walls keep out the heat of the summer sun and they keep the heat in during the winter. There is a sitting/dining room with the adjacent kitchen separated by a bar built to include the original wooden cow byre. The kitchen is equipped for 5 people with fridge, oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, crockery and cutlery. Behind the sitting room there is a large double room with en-suite bathroom, toilet and shower. There is a south-facing patio outside with chairs and table shaded by a plum tree. This is all on a level with the main door and the parking is right by the house so it would be suitable for somebody with disabilities. Upstairs there is a small twin room with its own shower room and toilet. There is a small single bedroom that is accessed through the twin room and shower room.
Outside Amenities: Garden, BBQ, pool.
A tranquil situation but close to the shops, restaurants and travel facilities of Bergerac.
We have a farm that consists of 46 acres (19 hectares) of fields and sweet chestnut woods that stretch down to the River Caudeau. We breed Connemara ponies, have our own horses and also have horses on livery.
You are welcome to explore the farm. If you have your own horse or pony then they can come too.
In the Spring we have orchids in the fields and even in the garden (we leave patches un-mown so they can grow naturally).
Surrounding Area: Bergerac is a well known wine producing area by the Dordogne with an historic old town. Around the farm is the Pécharment red wine area and the Monbazillac sweet wine area is aross the Dordogne just past the airport.
There are many chateaux to visit and the prehistory sites of Lascaux and the Vézère valley are within reach. Canoeing is available on the Dordogne and Vézère during the warmer months. Bergerac has a market on Wednesday and Saturday and many of the nearby villages have markets on other days.
From the station there are trains to Bordeaux and Sarlat. The airport is about 15 mins from our farm with flights to Southampton, Exeter, Bristol, Leeds, Stansted and Rotterham during the summer with fewer flights and destinations during the winter months.
There are several supermarkets in Bergerac and there is a very large choice of restaurants. The majority of the restaurants offer a typical French menu, often in this area with duck dishes - magret (duck breast) or confit (leg) - in a mushroom sauce - and fois gras. There are other specialities including both Indian and Chinese. In July and August many villages organise night markets with a choice of food and wine to consume as a shared experience, often accompanied by music and dancing.
