About the Property

Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

In one of France's most pastoral areas, two 17C self-catering farmhouses with huge swimming pool, surrounded by 20 hectares/50-acres of parkland and pasture, stunning hillside views, peaceful and private. For larger groups, can be rented together with La Bergerie for 2-4 people (VRBO #168525) next door.

Our 17th Century Perigordian estate 'Cantegrive' is situated on 20 hectares/50 acres of forest and pasture on a hillside with sweeping views, on a small country lane that ends in a cul-de-sac. The tranquil location offers peace, quiet and privacy. However, shops, sites and services are a short drive away. American and Finnish nationals, we live on site together with our horses and dog.

La Grande Maison has 350 sq m/3300 sq ft of living space on two floors. On the ground floor is your fully equipped kitchen with adjoining dining room, living room with fireplace, and a well stocked library. Upstairs is one bedroom with ensuite bathroom and its own roof terrace overlooking the pool area, plus two other bedrooms sharing the second bathroom. Terracotta floor tiles, exposed oak beams, wall-to-wall carpeting in bedrooms.

Around the house are spacious shaded lawns and terraces. Our large 20x50 ft (8x18m) pool, equipped with an alarm system, is in its own landscaped area. For your vehicles there is a covered carport.

The perfect place for the vacation of your dreams!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: We are US and Finnish nationals and live on the property full-time, with our horses and dog. Twenty years ago we were looking all over France for a property to keep our horses - as we came to the Dordogne, we fell head over heels in love with the area. On a sunny crisp March morning we came to see 'Cantegrive' for the first time - the rest is history! Twenty years later, we are still as happy and love to share our life experience in the Dordogne with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Beaumont-du-Périgord, France:
As told above - perfect for us and our four-legged friends. And we decided to share this paradise with others.....

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Peace, quiet, privacy, wildlife - and not far from interesting sights and sounds!
