Plazac chateau / country house description

A superb 19c manor house with private pool set in a private garden & 4 gites with shared pool, most have wonderful views of La Roque St Christophe. The house accommodates 12 people in 6 bedrooms with 6 en-suite bathrooms. The 4 gites, totally separate from the main house, have all been renovated and furnished to the same level of comfort as the house and share a second swimming pool. The largest, The Tobacco Barn, sleeps 5/6 guests in 3 en-suite bedrooms. The 3 other spacious gites - the Hay Barn, Walnut Store and La Roque Terrace - are each designed for 2 people. Each unit is fully self-contained, with kitchen, lounge, bedroom and en-suite bathroom, and has a private terrace with outdoor dining and BBQ. Alternatively the house and 4 gites would be suitable for large groups of up to 24 people - perfect for parties and weddings. The property is five minutes walk from local restaurant and boulangerie and perfectly situated for all places of interest the Dordogne has to offer.


Le Moustier: Situated between Montignac, famous for the Lacaux cave paintings, and Les Eyzies with its many prehistoric sites, the small village of Le Moustier derives its name from the prehistoric Mousterian era due to an important skull find there. It has a restaurant, bar and a boulangerie and the house is only 5 minutes walk from the village. Les Granges placed on the side of the river Vezere opposite La Roque St Christophe, a limestone cliff face with caves carved into the rock which were inhabited for over 55,000 years from the prehistoric era to the middle ages when over 5,000 people lived on the site. These kilometre long caves are illuminated at night and make a spectacular view from the property.

The surrounding area: Many local towns offer traditional street markets. Montignac in particular hosts an excellent market twice a week, and nearby Rouffignac has a splendid Sunday morning market, where local farmers exhibit freshly picked vegetables, plump ducklings, fresh foie gras and enormous selections of local cheeses. The Perigord is a gourmets paradise and there are many excellent local restaurants offering the best of the areas cuisine.
The property is excellently placed for walking and cycling with all tracks well marked. There are plenty to choose from and range in severity from easy to strenuous!
Other local activities include canoeing on the Vezere or the Dordogne rivers, horse riding and tennis, golf, hot air ballooning and river cruises all within 30 - 40 minutes drive.

The Dordogne Region: The land of a thousand chateaux, the Dordogne or Perigord as it was known, is split into four regions named for their natural features. Noir(black) region of dense forests, Vert(green) spruce trees, Pourpre(purple) vines and Blanc(white) natural limestone. Due to its natural beauty and abundance of medieval towns, chateaux and villages, the Perigord Noir is the jewel in the crown of the Dordogne. The Vezere Valley, with its predominance of prehistoric sites, makes this region one of the most visited. The medieval towns of Sarlat, Les Eyzies and the vibrant city of Perigueux and many traditional villages, each with a character of their own, including Domme, Rocamador, Beynac, Le Roque Gageac, Montignac with the famous Lascaux caves, St Leon sur Vezere, makes the region a real sight seeing experience.

                      Les Granges is situated in Le Moustier near to Montignac and the beautiful village of St Leon sur Vezere. Close to Lascaux caves, the towns of Sarlat, Beynac, Domme and Perigueux. Directly opposite is La Roque St Christophe, the site of a small Bastide town dating back 55,000 years and inhabited up to the 16th century. This kilometre long cave carved into the rock thousands of years ago, is lit up at night and makes a spectacular view from the property. There are many historic sites dating back to Prehistoric times, caves, grottos, cave paintings, all situated in the most beautiful countryside. This area has been made famous by Jean Auel's Earth's Children books. The sixth and latest one, Land of Painted Caves, was published in 2011. Many of our customers come to stay to see the area linked to these books.

                      The Perigord is noted also for its gastronomy, foie gras, truffles, confit de canard, wild mushrooms and walnuts! We are surrounded by pretty villages, all with markets at least once a week, giving our renters the opportunity to experiment with the local produce. As well as walking, cycling, canoeing and golf there is a Budhist centre and a Hammam very close so you can either be active or relax!

                      Other Activities: Canoing, paintballing (30mins), Microlite tuition

                      Golf: There are four 18 hole courses and three 9 hole courses in the Perigord region. Most are between 35minutes and one hours drive from our property, others are slightly further but well worth the drive!

                      This is an excellent website which gives you all the information you need. http://www.golf-dordogne-perigord.com/golfs.html

                      There is also information about a free golf pass which gives you discount on all the courses in the region.

                      Ski: No Skiing.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We were both born, and grew up, in Leicester, England. We met in 1976, when Paul was working as a graphic designer and Philippa worked, in the same office, as a secretary. We moved to Leeds, West Yorkshire, later that same year because Paul was offered a new job. Philippa decided to train as a nurse and qualified in 1980.

                      Why the Owner Chose Plazac:
                      After we had our two daughters, Charlotte (1982) and Nicola (1983), we came to the Dordogne for some wonderful camping holidays and fell in love with the region. From that very first holiday we said that we would love to come and live here. We never expected to be able to realise our dream! We especially loved the Vezere Valley and when we saw Le Manoir des Granges for sale on a website we arranged a viewing. It was the last of 4 properties; there was no competition! The location is amazing with view across to Roque Saint Christophe. A village with a lovely restaurant and a boulangerie in walking distance. Only 10 minutes drive to Montignac for the supermarket and market.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                      Our property offers flexible accommodation for a variety of group sizes. From 2 people to 23 people. Accommodation for mobility impaired. We are centrally located for visiting all the main sites of interest. Two swimming pools and all our bedrooms are en-suite.
