About the Property
2 bed/2 baths. Main house has 1/1 and guesthouse has 1/1
We have a wonderful southern exposure allowing for gorgeous sunrises and sunsets and views of mountains and a patch work of small working farms. Available for 1 week minimum with a Saturday afternoon check-in and a Saturday morning check-out. Located in the medieval village of Carves just 4 kilometers to Belves. This is the most beautiful valley close to
the Dordogne River in the heart of the Perigord Noir. We often take bicycles to the river (30 minutes) of surreal scenery. Idyllic, private location perfect for discovering prehistoric caves, ancient castles, wineries, quaint stone villages, fois gras, delicious french country cuisine and many other wonderful
scenic experiences. Canoeing or kayaking on the Dordogne is a dream...slow, clear and calm best describes this gorgeous river...it is an awesome experience for ANY age, young and old alike! Come and learn the meaning of bliss!
Master ensuite bedroom upstairs with king bed and ensuite guest house with a queen bed...perfect for two couples or two friends. Montauban enjoys peace and quiet away from all the hustle and bustle of all the tourist sites that attract people to the Dordogne but we are within easy driving distance to all major attractions, cafés, restaurants, caves, historical monuments, castles, chateaux, the Dordogne River, the Vezere River and the Lot. In addition to all that, the home is full of character, charm, and comfort.

Located in the in the medieval village of Carves, 4 kilometers from Belves in the Perigord Noir, an area with beautiful rivers (Dordogne and Vezere) perfect for canoeing, swimming, and fishing. Ancient caves, Lascaux, Gouffre de Padirac, prehistoric cliff-side dwellings, and beautiful chateaux and castles. Gorgeous rolling country side dotted with small working farms. Quaint ancient stone villages everywhere.
Year Purchased: 1975
About: Kristi and I were born and raised in central California. We have lived in Big Sur, CA (Monterey Peninsula) 40+ years. We have three children and three grand children. We absolutely love our ancient stone cottage in Carves, the heart of the Dordogne, as the english speaking call the area. The french refer to this area as the Perigord Noir, famous for their fois gras, truffles, goat cheese (chevre) and all products of duck.
Why Carves, France:
My mother bought this property as a ruin in 1975 and lovingly restored it to the warm and cozy home it is today. She deeded the property to us in 1999 (we are truly blessed).
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our favorite part of this home is that our neighbors make the absolutely best award winning chevre (goat cheese) in all of France...I have sampled it throughout other parts of the country and nothing beats it's quality. I didn't even like the stuff until I tried their's now I can't get enough! All the food there is a true delight. Considering the food, scenery, history, pre-history, rivers and valleys and patchwork farms and medieval stone villages and castles and prehistoric caves we never grow tired of the area and we spend 6-8 weeks there every year for the past 20 years.
