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 downstairs 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. You have a dedicated Wifi connection (i.e. not shared) for those wanting to work or to be entertained. At present this is ADSL with a fibre optic connection that is 'promised' for 2023 (they are working on it and seem to be getting very close).

Outside Amenities:  The garden, BBQ, pool are for your use. We look after the pool but it is for your use and not shared with other guests.
We are in a tranquil situation but close (4 km) to the shops, restaurants of Bergerac as well as the station and airport (15 mins).
We have a farm that consists of 46 acres (19 hectares) of fields and sweet chestnut woods that stretch down to the small River Caudeau.
We breed Connemara ponies, have our own horses for riding and also have horses on livery.
There are some oak trees and chestnut trees around the fields to offer the horses some shade in the summer.
You are welcome to explore the farm. If you have your own horse or pony then they can come too (we can arrange full or part livery).
In the Spring we have orchids in the fields and even in the garden (we leave patches that are not 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 across 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. From Bordeaux the TGV goes to Paris in just over 2 hours - change there for Eurostar to London or Brussels.
Bergerac airport is about 15 mins from our farm with flights from Stansted (Ryanair), Rotterdam (Transavia) and Oporto (Portugal, Ryanair) all year round. There are also flights from Bristol and Exeter (end of March to October, Ryanair), and during the summer (May to September) there are flights from Southampton (British Airways), Bournmouth (Ryanair), Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds Bradford (Jet2). Bordeaux airport is further (we allow 2 hours) and has flights from world-wide destinations as well as Exeter and Bristol (March to October, EasyJet) and Exeter (March to October, Ryanair). (This list written in December 2022 from airline websites and subject to any changes they make).
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.
