Description of Property: This property will be for our renters 'home from home'. Laid out over one floor, albeit with one or two steps to different rooms, it boasts a large open-plan dining room/ kitchen - light and airy with two sets of French windows, both to the front, and two large windows to the side. The kitchen is fully fitted with electric cooker and gas hob and there is a dining table and chairs for up to 8 persons. There is also a large settee. Up two steps you find the lounge, with comfortable seating and a magnificent woodburner. The lounge has french windows to the back of the property. Off the lounge there are three steps to a 'balcony' off which are two bedrooms, one with double bed, the other with two singles, and a toilet. Also off the lounge there is a shower room with a large shower and basin. And finally there is a small hall at the end of the lounge which leads to the master bedroom with king-size bed and four windows over two aspects; a large bathroom; and the utility room.
Outside Amenities: The lounge and kitchen have doors which lead on to the patio - a large area which enjoys the winter sun and looks out over the hamlet and the field opposite. Off the patio and along the front of the house is another small area which is not normally used in the winter months. To the side of the cottage is a large parking area which is shared with the next-door barn.
Surrounding Area: The Cottage is just outside the village of Montazeau which has a very good restaurant and a 'vente directe' chateau. There are dozens of 'vente directe' wine producers in the region and wine tastings can be arranged. The nearest village for bread and emergency supplies is five minutes by car, and has several shops including a general stores, a pharmacy, a restaurants and a doctor's surgery. Supermarket shopping is 15 minutes away. The area is well served by restaurants and cafe/bars.
The Dordogne is a beautiful part of southwest France with a very good climate. Within short drives there is the city of Bordeaux, the beautiful and historic town of St Emilion, the very picturesque town of Brantome, Duras with its castle, Bergerac with its quaint old town and many more wonderful places to visit. If, like us, you enjoy food and wine you will be in heaven. For the more energetic there are countryside walks, cycling (we can arrange cycle hire), canoeing on the river, golf close by, horseriding, and caves at Sarlat. Montazeau has a tennis court for hire. Nearby Lac de Gurson has proved popular with families and offers lake swimming, pedallos, sandy beaches and 3 bar/restaurants. If you are prepared to take a longer journey you can visit Cognac, Angouleme or Limoges - or head further south to the Spanish border - have a day out and lunch in Biarritz.
