Issigeac villa description

Long before Shakespeare wrote a word, or John Donne penned a sonnet, the village house on Rue St Felicien was built above a registered Gallo-Roman villa, in an ancient medieval village called ISSIGEAC, amid the vines of the Bergerac wine appellation, and just miles away from the Dordogne River. Here in a vibrant, popular market village with every possible service at your doorstep, this luxuriously-renovated ancient townhouse sits in stone as a testament to the 14th century. All around are reminders of a past where warriors wandered the streets below, yet inside the village house on Rue St Felicien offers the utmost in all modern conveniences and beautifully appointed surroundings.

With walls of limestone and ceilings of walnut, the entrance way leads through large blue carriage doors off a winding (walk-only) street, into a large stone hallway housing a magnificent, curved staircase. Down the passage is the downstairs double bedroom with queen bed and beamed walls. Next door there is a bed room, with a single twin bed. Both rooms are individually designed with beautiful curtains, linens and 'heavenly beds' ('ciel du lits'). Next to the bedrooms is a full, modern bathroom with double sinks and a separate (American-style) shower, and separate toilet. The washer and dryer are conveniently located in a nook nearby. NOTE: With 2 double (queen) bedrooms and one single room and bathrooms located on 2 separate floors, this home is ideal for 2 couples travelling together, and perhaps with a single friend or relative. The bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor are conveniently separated from the top floor suite and bathroom, so that your common living area in the middle allows each floor total privacy.

Ascend the ancient staircase to the 'great room' which will take your breath away with it's medieval stone and heavy beams. This room is the main living area with a dining area, a salon area, and an open kitchen. There are 12 foot high ceilings, 3 sets of double windows and a set of double French doors, which open out - with light and air pouring in day and night. Attention has been paid to every detail with antiques and beautiful fabrics everywhere, reflecting a design style of French country living.

In the kitchen, the stove-top and large oven offer professional cooks tools, and is equipped with every convenience from microwave to dishwasher. Chat to your friends and family as you cook or spend long lunches at the antique table with fresh cheese or local delights you've bought nearby.

A second magnificent staircase takes you up to the spacious, private master suite on the top floor. This enormous, light-filled room has dimensions to match its history. The beams were lifted to a height above 2 meters (6 ft 8 in), and four classic windows were added for light and magnificent views over the village of Issigeac below. This is surely not the usual attic-converted space in the least, but rather a living and relaxing space akin to top-class hotel suites. Take long afternoon naps lulled asleep by only birds and the sound of bells from nearby St Felicien, or enjoy a quiet read by the light of an open window. The ensuite bathroom is complete with bath, toilet and basin - you'll enjoy soaking in the claw-footed bathtub while enjoying the view up high.

Back on the ground floor, you can head out through double French doors to a spacious open courtyard (with ancient stones) where you can enjoy the day as it passes by. With table and chairs for 6, it's the perfect spot to taste your best effort at French cuisine, or to barbecue under the stars. Or in the morning, indulge in coffee and fresh croissants as you enjoy the new day.

The village of Issigeac is just 15 minutes south of Bergerac in the Perigord (Dordogne) region of southwestern France. It is well-known due to its very popular Sunday market, and its easy proximity to the Bergerac airport (12 minutes away) and train station (20 minutes). It is also within easy reach of all of the world-famous French wine appellations of: Monbazillac, Bergerac and Saussignac, as well as being minutes away from other popular villages like Beaumont, Monpazier and Villareal. An hour by car will take you to Sarlat, Les Eyzies and Domme where you can explore the Perigord Noir with its caves and ancient paleolithic history.

One of the best reasons to stay at the village house on Rue St Felicien is living in the heart of an authentic medieval village - with absolutely everything within easy walking distance. There's never a reason to get in your car as you take in all that the village has to offer. With its boulangeries, restaurants, butcheries, and grocery stores, you’ll have a wide variety of choices for all your needs. If it’s a bottle of great local wine you’re after, you’re sure to find it at the local wine shop, or if you just want a quick 'cafe', that's available too. If you're visiting in the summer months, the fabulous 'Fete de Bodega' will have you dancing in the streets, or enjoy the wonderful night-markets with tables and chairs set up in the square for you to soak up the local flavor - and a glass of local wine! The Sunday market will have you trying the freshest produce of the area including the best selection of the Perigord: foie gras, truffles, walnuts and goat cheese. We offer a Friday changeover so that you'll be well-settled in to take full advantage of the Sunday market.

                            Right from the beginning of the booking process, Janice made us feel welcome and reassured that all would be handled with promptness and professionalism. This continued through our stay and after as well. Her property manager, Nathalie, was wonderful and right around the corner to assist with any and all needs. We had a marvelous time and Issigeac was a darling, and historic, village that had all the conveniences - restaurants, shops, groceries, a market day - literally steps outside of the front door. This property is well organized, has all the supplies necessary to make yourself comfortable, and is very spacious. The three floors allow for privacy and the shared middle floor is laid out in the familiar open-style model (kitchen, living, dining flow together). We arrived the evening before market day - which is every Sunday-and when we awoke the next morning, we didn't even waste time with breakfast but went immediately out to investigate. We had great fun and kept bringing packages back to the house. Who would think that one could buy clothing at market, but that's exactly what we did - and we had breakfast as we wandered through all the stalls and vendors. We were out and about until they closed down and then we found that we had successfully filled an empty suitcase with all the discovered 'prizes'. Janice arranged a private chef-prepared meal and we had great fun with Fabrice. In addition, she also arranged a hot air balloon ride over the Dordogne river and environs which was memorable and exciting. She ensured all was ready for us and we really had very little to do other than make a call and list specific dietary needs. It was fabulous! All-in-all, we had a spectacular time in the Dordogne and spent our time exploring the region, visiting local towns, and venturing further afield when we felt up to extended car time. Issigeac was very welcoming and both Janice and Nathalie made us feel right at home!

                            It was very easy to find the town with the owner’s instruction package. However, it was difficult to locate the house as when we arrived it was dark and all the houses seemed to have blue doors. After circling the area a few times, we finally called the owner (Janice) who was waiting for us at the house. When we entered the house, we immediately realized that the house was more beautiful than the photos. Janice welcomed us with a few bottles of wine, cheese, and baguette. She also made a reservation on our behalf at the local restaurant (Chez Alain). The house was clean and very well-maintained. It had well equipped kitchen, living space, bedrooms. The house is a perfect size for a family of 4~5, but can certain accommodate up to 7 people. My husband and I shared the house with another couple so we had an extra room where we got to store our belongings to keep our bedroom uncluttered during our stay. The town was very quiet and the stores closed very early. The farmer’s market was fun, food was delicious, and we found good gift items to take back home. We visited the neighboring towns as per Janice’s recommendations and thoroughly enjoyed the day trips. Janice happened to be in town during our stay and had offered to accompany us to lunch at an award winning restaurant in Dordogne, Vieux Logis. After the lunch, she offered to drive us to the local wine/liquor store where we picked up some wines to bring back home. The stay was comfortable and truly home-away-from-home, however, the owner’s knowledge and hospitality was even more outstanding. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

                            We spent the last week of September at this house in historic Issigeac. Most days the town was quite peaceful and empty, but on Sunday there is a town-wide market that is a sight to behold. Hundreds of vendors with amazing produce and about a thousand people fill the streets. The energy, color and quality of the food available is just great. The house itself is a delight; a modern home inside an ancient building with a well-equipped kitchen (to cook all that produce you bought at the market) and comfortable bedrooms on a little, quaint street just a few paces from the town square, the church and abundant parking. Issigeac is but a short drive from so many wonderful sights in the Dordogne and the town, astonishingly for a village of its size, is home to two excellent restaurants. The owners of the house happened to be in the neighborhood and we count ourselves very lucky to have met them. They are hospitality personified. We have rented houses in Italy and elsewhere in France and have always had good stays. This one, however, was exceptional.

                            My husband and I with two friends spent a week in this beautiful home in Issigeac. We had all the modern conveniences and comforts within a rebuilt medieval house. The two of us had the third floor bedroom which looked out over the roofs of the village with views on all sides. There is a comfortable living and dining room, a well equipped kitchen and we grilled on the sweet outdoor patio. The home is on a quiet lane just off the village's street of appealing shops. The Sunday market draws thousands to the town with all the delectable foods Dordogne is known for. In town we frequented the patisseries, the butcher shop and the wine maker. There are also a couple of world class restaurants in the village. We also visited many of the Bastide towns nearby. Janice and Bill are gracious hosts as well as owners and are available for any questions. I highly recommend staying here.

                            We three thoroughly enjoyed our week stay here over Christmas. The owner Janice made us welcome through-out, provided any assistance we required and gave us great insight into the area so we had many options. We took her suggestions for local restaurants which included a memorable Christmas afternoon meal. The location of the unit is perfect for the local market day. The residence was super clean and certainly more than enough room with the three floors. We bought the Cicerone Guide "Walking is the Dordogne" and did the 16km walk number 23 "Around the Medieval Village of Issigeac" We only got lost once and a local lady helped us get back on track! We also did a drive to Beynac Castle and to Sarlat. We were the only ones at Beynac Castle for most of our visit there and really enjoyed it. I think we would have found Sarlat too big a city for what we wanted on this Christmas trip and enjoyed the smaller village feel of Issigeac. I would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative and already have! Thanks again Janice!

                            We very much appreciated being in a small village that had all the amenities along with a wonderful Sunday market. The layout of the villa was fine for us. We chose the sunniest bedroom: top floor and enjoyed the kitchen thoroughly. Parking in the square was very easy and moreover the location of Issigeac to other major points of interest was ideal in accomodating day trips. Janice was most helpful in providing pre-trip information and her recommendations regarding places to see, restaurants, etc. were excellent. This was a pleasant respite in a small village with accomodations we appreciated upon return from our many trips out into the region. If one is not mobile, this is not an accomodation for you as the stairs are steep.

                            Whenever someone asks about my first vacation in France, I comment on the magical medieval village of Issigeac , the beautiful villa we called home for one wonderful week, but most of all, the graciousness of its owner, Janice. Prior to our arrival, Janice sent information about Issigeac and the surrounding area which helped us plan our daily outings including must-see historical spots, markets, wineries, and restaurants. With this background information, we were able to truly enjoy and appreciate this beautiful region of France. Janice's attention to detail did not end there, however. Each evening when we returned to Issigeac, we appreciated the attention she gave in providing a comfortable and elegant home-away-from-home for guests. The villa offered modern-day comforts in a beautiful medieval setting. It was hard to leave the "fairytale" when our week ended! One final note in praise of Janice...when we departed for Paris, my camera with its treasured photos was left behind, seemingly lost forever. Janice's superior detective skills located the camera in a village shop and she returned it to me. I was thrilled! Kudos to her for raising the bar when it comes to accommodating the needs/requests of her guests.

                            Imagine a perfect village in the idyllic French countryside – small enough to walk the entire town but big enough to have charming boutiques, boulangeries, a spa, pharmacies, fine dining, tennis courts and a festive weekly night market (translation: dinner in the town square – steps from home - with all of your friends, live music and no cooking required!) Now imagine the perfect lodging in this perfect village – right in the hub of town with more charm than you thought possible. “Charming” can mean rustic- but not so here! This home is perfectly appointed with all of your needs anticipated by most thoughtful and gracious owners. Classically beautiful linens, antiques, claw foot tub, hardwood floors and giant windows. Modern conveniences such as wi-fi, ipod speakers and a kitchen that would please any chef. The downstairs bedrooms are comfortable and cozy, close to the terrace. The upstairs bedroom is light and airy and spacious. The towels are thick and the beds are comfortable. Finally - imagine a friend in this beautiful place, because that is what you will have in Janice, the owner. Her knowledge of the area, her relationships with local business owners and neighbors, her enthusiasm and gift for hospitality are invaluable. This was my second time renting from Janice and Bill. Two years ago I was fortunate to find Chateau Peyruzel which we rented with a group of friends. That experience was so good that I did not even look around for this trip; I just contacted Janice because I knew that I would be in good hands and that their property would be at a certain standard. Little did I know how important her hospitality would become; when my wallet was stolen in Paris and I was subsequently unable to rent a car she went out of her way to make sure that I made it to Issigeac and introduced me to warm, caring people in the community so I did not feel a bit alone before my husband arrived mid-week with a car. We enjoyed cycling through the sunflower fields to local wineries, watching the Tour de France, excellent dining (through Janice's recommendations) and of course the lively Sunday market! There is something for everyone in the Dordogne and this Issigeac Village Home is the perfect base to experience it all.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

                            What a magical house in a wonderful Village! The house is exactly as pictured and Janice and Bill have decorated it with love and care. They have thought of everything...down to cooking utensils and even left me wine, water, milk and coffee upon my arrival! To wake up each morning to the church bells chiming and the doves cooing blissfully is something you have to experience! The Village is centrally located to many of the sites famous along the Dordogne and I have spent days just driving and admiring this beautiful countryside. But do not overlook the Village of Issigeac itself! There are wonderful little shops and the residents have been so welcoming to me. I had the good fortune to be present for the Marches, the Marches Nocturnelle AND a Bodega...when this sleepy little Village comes alive with comraderie and goodwill. This is not what I would call a "tourist" spot...this is a real Village, where people live, work and play together! I MUST mention that Julie, the property manager, is phenomenal. She greeted me on arrival, explained the workings of all the appliances, etc., provided info on the area and began this wonderful stay with both warmth and professionalism. I cannot say enough good words about her. Over the course of my visit, we have had the opportunity to chat and become friends! What a treasure she is! I have looked at other property in the region and I can say, unequivocally, that this spot is heaven on earth. Come and enjoy!

                            We had the opportunity and pleasure to stay here on our holiday and it was perfect! Janice was extremely helpful in accommodating our last-minute booking and met us upon arrival to show us around the property and the town. Her recommendations as well as the guidebooks, brochures, maps etc. at the house were very informative and helpful in planning our daily excursions. In particular, Janice made fabulous dinner recommendations and we were never disappointed! We actually drove out to Janice's other rental property, Chateau Peyruzel, where she graciously indulged us with a private tour of the incredible castle and its grounds. Issigeac is perfectly located for day trips and the town offers everything you might need during your stay with a few restaurants, a wine store, two little grocery stores, a couple of patisseries [for the daily fresh baguette and pain-au-chocolat!] a petrol station as well as a few local shops. The Sunday market is a must! We were able to stock up with fresh produce, cheese, sausages and other delicious treats and able to enjoy many meals at the house - nice when you are on holiday not to eat every meal in a restaurant. The house is fairly well equipped with everything you'd possibly need to prepare and enjoy your own home-cooked meal. The house is quite comfortable for relaxing with a glass of wine [or two!] in the evening and the beds and linens are remarkably comfortable for a holiday rental. We highly recommend this holiday rental property and look forward to a return visit!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: We are the proud owners of the house of Rue St Felicien in Issigeac (that's our street above), and purchased it in 2006 from friends of ours, who had just completed a 5 year renovation - adding all new electrics, plumbing, central heating and double-paned windows. They bought it as a ruin and did an amazing job in bringing it back to life. We couldn't resist its charm when they had to sell it in order to move for their work. In fact, when we walked into the entrance way, we had already decided to buy it without seeing any further! Although our home is in California, we have traveled a great deal in western Europe and have rented many properties – some great, and some less than spectacular! We always appreciated cleanliness, comfort, good beds, furniture you could actually sit on, great linens and towels, appliances that really worked, and nice big wine glasses! After buying our dream French village house, our philosophy hasn’t changed - and we have upgraded the standard of the house to meet or exceed the best we’ve seen in terms of personal comforts. Basically, we have designed it to be the way we’d like it if we arrived tired and hungry from across the world. And we know you'll love it when you arrive too.

                          Why the Owner Chose Issigeac:
                          Issigeac is one of the precious medieval gems of the Dordogne, with so much of its history apparent in its wonderful architecture. We used to visit the Sunday market routinely, and so fell in love with this timeless village. With only about 600 inhabitants and the village being within a 'ring road' built in the classic Roman form of its predecessor, owning a home right in the heart of the village was a dream come true. Once you're parked and unloaded, you can walk to 3 restaurants, 3 boulangeries, various cafes, 2 butcheries, 2 grocery stores, a presse, a wonderful wine shop, a lovely boutique, and antique shops, - what's not to love! This was especially wonderful for our elderly relatives as well as visiting friends who didn't have a car, since they were completely independent once we arrived. With wine-tasting and historical sites so close, it was really the perfect location to have a 3-storey village house. And all of this is within 15 minutes of Bergerac and the airport as well.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          As with out other properties, we believe that great beds, beautiful linens and decorations, and a superbly clean environment are the best benefits to a vacation home. We also love the 14th century history that comes with this home, as well as its proximity to all immediate services within a few minutes walk. With 3 floors all filled with light and sunshine, this ancient home offers a unique experience of blending the historical with the modern.
