Chateau Forge du Roy and its Estate of 184 acres sits in a peaceful valley of woods and meadowland, and is a few km from the Vezere valley which has 147 UN listed sites of prehistoric interest including the famous Lascaux painted caves. It is located 1km along a quiet country lane off the Perigueux - Sarlat road (D47). The rural location is perfect for hiking and cycling, and canoeing is wonderful along the Vezere from Les Eyzies de Tayac - 14 km away. Les Eyzies also has two of the most famous French museums of prehistory, a good selection of restaurants, and a number of troglodyte caves.
The Grotte de Rouffignac - 8 km - has prehistoric animal paintings, and the small town of Rouffignac 7 km has a busy market on Sundays and is the nearest for supermarket and butcher/baker.
A greater variety of shops exists at Le Bugue, the largest local town at 10km. A challenging 18 hole golf course is at Mortemart 10mins away.
Further afield Sarlat 30mins, Domme and Roque Gigeac are a must to visit. The Dordogne and Vezere rivers meet at Limeuil which is a beautiful picnic spot.
Near Belves is a hot air ballooning centre for trips above the region (details in the house information book).
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are an English couple living in UK close to London. We bought the property because we love southwestern France.
Why the Owner Chose Mauzens-et-Miremont, France:
This is a historic building, dating from 1680, in a beautiful country setting, tranquil and safe. We have modernised and improved it to a high standard of comfort.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The Estate is only ever booked to one group at a time, who thus have exclusive use of the Estate and all facilities. It is the perfect place for groups of family, friends, or those with a shared interest.
