Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Situated 12Km N of Bergerac in a tranquil location on the edge of a typical, pretty Dordogne village, this 19th Century farmhouse has recently undergone a total renovation combining modern facilities with striking original features retaining the charm and rustic character of the old building. There is a good sized private pool close to the house with a overlooking deck allowing convenient supervision. The courtyard is the focus for summer outdoor living and is a totally enclosed spacious area with open outbuildings providing a covered outdoor dining area. A deck leads down from the house and there is plenty of sunny patio space around the pool. The large garden has walnuts, cherries, peaches & plums - help yourself! St Julien is adjacent to Bergerac's quality Pecharment wine region and within an hour of famous Bordeaux vineyards, including St Emilion. There are bikes in the barn and a few shops & restaurants are within cycling distance. There is a very good equine centre nearby, with golf, fishing and canoeing in the local. The house is equipped with good Wi-Fi and satellite TV.

The local area is rich in gastronomic delights: pate, fois-gras, cheese, bread and, of course, wine to name but a few. The delightful market town of Bergerac with the river Dordogne winding lazily through it, is situated about 12km to the south while about 35km north lies the ancient cathedral city of Perigueux. Both are worth exploring, Bergerac market days are Wed and Sat. Local activities include horse riding at an impressive equestrian centre 4km from the house, canoeing on the Dordogne, cycling, fishing and golf. There are numerous leafy walks around the village. Many of the numerous chateaux along the banks of the Dordogne are open to the public as are the huge caves and grottos in the area.

St Julien de Crempse (the Crempse being the local river) is clearly signposted 4km west of Campsegret off the main Bergerac-Perigueux road. Keys are held by the friendly and informative Mr Dimitri Buchen who speaks English and lives in the presbytery behind the farmhouse.

Lovely spacious house in very quiet village 10 minutes to Bergerac and shops

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in the most peaceful village you could imagine, the pool is great and the house has plenty of room and is like home from home. Bergerac town is a short drive for any supplies and a walk round the shops. There are numerous canoeing , walking, cycling places locally and the neighbours are also lovely. We would come back again.

Relaxing, full of character house in a quaint little village

  • 5 of 5

Love this house! Superbly situated for Bergerac airport and sorties into beautiful little villages and wine tasting chateaux. Everyone really friendly and helpful and the house itself is a wonderful sun trap - mornings at the front and afternoons by the pool.

I thoroughly recommend a visit!

Lovely house, superb location

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful location for a holiday, quiet and scenic yet close enough to the town to suit all needs. The children loved the pool, the weather was superb and it was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

The house is well equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable.

My family and I thoroughty enjoyed our stay in this lovely rural village. The property surpassed our expectations and we could not fault it at all. The pool was expecially welcoming to cool off and relax. We have already booked to come again.

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a super week here in this very nicely renovated property. If you are looking for the unspoilt Dordogne then this is the place. We would thoroughly recommend it and will be coming back next year.
