Just imagine your own 'petite chateau', set in the heart of the Dordogne, a region steeped in history going back for thousands of years. Your holiday home is situated just minutes from key attractions such as: Sarlat, one of France's most well preserved medieval villages; Beynac and Castlenaud, two of the most famous chateaux in the region; the cliff hanging village of Roque de Gageac; the prehistoric sites of Les Eyzies and the famous caves of Lascaux. This, combined with 2 large rivers for canoeing; day and night markets and hundreds of cultural events means that your holiday can be as quiet or as full as you wish.
Set in an hectare of private gardens, your grande maison has a unique tower with open battlements where you can gaze out over the peaceful valley and watch the sun slowly setting. What better way to enjoy your evening aperitif?
Afterwards, lounge in the shadow of the massive stone tower, then fire up the barbecue and enjoy dinner by the water lily pond, stocked with frogs and fish. Or, as the mercury rises, simply relax by your own private pool, overlooking the valley, and catch up on that
reading you always meant to do. The breakfast area overlooks the pool at the front of the house where you can enjoy croissants, breads and yogurts from our famous artisanal boulangerie, 5 minutes walk away.
Built in the mid eighteenth century, it's thick walls a testament to older, more robust building standards, Maison Grise, nonetheless has every modern convenience. It's four spacious bedrooms, (sleeping 8 in double or twin configuration) all have an ensuite bathroom, to ensure luxury with privacy. Bath towels. pool towels and hairdryers are provided.
Living in history doesn't mean you have to abandon your modern comforts. Broadband WIFI
is provided, along with an IPOD/Iphone docking station, quality stereo speakers, and large digital flat screen TV. There is a washing machine, a drier and a spare freezer in the laundry (which also has a magnificent view over the valley), whilst the well equipped and spacious
open plan kitchen will have you itching to release your inner Nigella (or Gordon for that matter). Outside, the lush gardens have plenty of shady areas to sit and enjoy a drink or just to gaze at the peaceful pastoral scene in the valley below.
During the high seasons, total privacy is assured as the owners do not live on site. In the off seasons, special rates can be negotiated for smaller groups or couples. For example, the entire ground floor including the master bedroom is available from 850 Eu per week for 2 people, and with 200 Eu per room thereafter. However, privacy is still assured as you will have the whole kitchen/lounge/living area to yourselves, as you would be the only group there. Priority though, will be given to bookings for the whole house, rather than for smaller parties. Please contact us if you need any further further information.

A magnificent historical area, famous for the 100 years war between England and France in the middle ages. Near the fabled Dordogne river, with a chateau on every corner, with hundreds of chateaux in the area. This is also a famous area for pre-history, with Lascaux caves a few kilometers away and many other pre-historic attractions, plus canoeing, walking & cycling trails, balloons and microlight flights. With great restaurants and vineyards nearby, it is truly a wonderful summer destination for all the family.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: As avid travelers, Anne & Charles see the wild places of the planet shrinking due to the encroachment of human activity. With that, wild animals no longer have the space and freedom to live their lives normally. To try to redress this balance in their own small way, they have set up a charity wingsoverafrica, to work with wild animals in Africa to help them co-exist with humans. They have purchased a small light aircraft to conduct surveys and anti poaching activities, initially in Namibia, but ultimately wherever in Africa they are needed. If you wish, you may visit the owners website for more information on their activities.
Why the Owner Chose Saint-André-d'Allas, France:
We always wanted a vacation home in France, and when we first visited the Dordogne, we were blown away by the beauty of the countryside, the history, the medieval villages and the Chateaux.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Watch the sunset from our tower which enjoys a 360 degree view of the surrounding countryside, whilst sipping a glass of champagne. Breakfast at the pond in the shadow of the tower, watching the frogs on the lily pads.
