Car: Recommended

Chestnut Cottage is set in the “Périgord Noir”, the heart of the Dordogne, with easy access to the region’s chateaux, rivers and market towns.

The house is five minutes from the town of Les Eyzies, a major site of prehistory, two minutes to the nearest restaurant, and five minutes to a bakery, pharmacy, shops and a small supermarket.

Within 15 minutes are the towns of Le Bugue and St-Cyprien, with large supermarkets and a range of other facilities.

This is an ideal spot for anyone who enjoys exploring. From the house, one can enjoy miles of walks through forests and countryside, by rivers, lakes and medieval villages.

Among the sports available locally are golf, canoeing, tennis, mountain biking, horse riding, fishing, hot air ballooning, and climbing.

• Eating – The Périgord is one of France’s true gastronomic delights……Foie Gras; Walnut salad; Magret de Canard (duck); Truffles; Smoked Salamis. Cêpes……

• Wines – with numerous Chateaux and Caves, the local Bergerac, Pecharmant, Saussignac and Monbazillac wine estates are quite wonderful.

• Walking – From Domaine Le Ruisseau, you can explore countless miles of stunning walks through unspoilt forests and countryside, by rivers, lakes and medieval bastide and hillside villages.

• Sports - golf, canoeing, tennis, mountain biking, horse riding, fishing, hot air ballooning, micro-lighting, paragliding, climbing – it’s all here.

• Culture - Chateaux, Bastide towns, antiques fairs, music festivals and much more. Beynac, Castelnaud, Les Milandes, Puymartin, Losse… ; picture-book stone villages including La Roque-Gageac, Domme, Brantôme, St Leon sur Vézère, Cadouin, Monpazier …

• Sarlat is a must see – an ancient and magnificently restored medieval town.

• Visit the Department of the Lot Lot with its famous villages of St Cirq Lapopie, Rocamadour and Puy l'Evêque.

• Pre-History - the cro-magnon man region is the cradle of pre-historic sites in Europe with its incredible caves and cave paintings. Lascaux (a world heritage site), Font du Gaume, Rocamadour, Gouffre de Proumessac are all only 10-60 mins away.

• Exploring -the Bordeaux region, St Emelion, Limoges, Toulouse, and many other attractions are only 1-2hrs away. Spain and the Pyrenees are less than 4hrs away.

• Shopping –beautiful, vibrant street market s and specialist fairs happening every day of the week.

• Chilling-out !!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Owned by an English Family now living and working in the Dordogne, we fell in love with the unique charm of Domaine Le Ruisseau when looking for our little bit of heaven in Southern France.

Why the Owner Chose Fleurac, France:
Domaine Le Ruisseau, set in a magnificent 50 acre private estate, is one of the most beautiful and tranquil locations you could imagine, yet very close to local amenities and all the area's main attractions. It is a perfect place to relax, a real 'swallows and Amazons' paradise for children....and a haven for their parents and grandparents! The wonderful 14x7M heated, chlorine Free swimming pool and activities complex is a focal point of summer activities, and in the autumn winter period Chestnut Cottage is a cosy property with wood burning fires and central heating

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Some three years after we had undertaken major restoration and renovation work fully sympathetic with the local style, using traditional materials and techniques, Domaine Le Ruisseau was recognised as one of the most beautiful properties in the Dordogne in a visitor survey. Chesntut Cottage has the special charm of being set in the heart of such a magnificent private estate surrounded by woods, stream, boating lake, and gardens, and yet being close to all local amenities and activities. The 300yr old spacious and warm property is made entirely from stone, wood and materials from the estate itself and other local sources.
