This stone cottage, is 2 kilometres from Genis which has three restaurants, a butcher, and an artisan baker who sells wonderful croissants as well as essential groceries. The accommodation is on the ground floor. All main rooms are south facing onto the garden. The lounge/diner has an impressive fireplace with wood-burning stove, a French window onto the terrace, and a staircase to the attic (so all rooms are full height). There are two large, light and airy bedrooms one with a French window onto the terrace. The bathroom has been recently fitted to a high standard. The kitchen is well equipped and gives onto the lounge. A basement houses the washing machine and garden furniture. The house is attractive and comfortable, whereas the location is absolutely stunning. During many summers in Sarrazanas, we have essentially lived outside on the terrace, in the garden or walking and cycling in the local area. The terrace is great for listening to the birds, looking at the views. There is so little light pollution the night sky looks awesome with the milky way very pronounced. The property comprises one hectare, just under half of which is garden, the remainder is in the adjoining field, where you will often sees the neighbour’s Limousine cattle grazing. The garden contains a beautiful barn, two wells (both capped), a host of shrubs, a large grass area for playing, and an orchard. We won’t be there so help yourself to whatever is ripe: figs, cherries, mirabelles, peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots, pears, or even walnuts from a magnificent mature tree. The garden attracts many birds; each year finches, warblers, and nightingales have nested here. Golden Orioles steal the figs and hoopoes visit the terrace in spring. The nearest town is Hautefort (10km) with its famous Chateau and gardens, a supermarket (with petrol), and shops and restaurants. There is fishing at Etang de Borne (3km). Cherveix Cubas (8km) has an excellent restaurant as well as canoeing on the Auvezerre. In easy reach are golf, swimming, a watersports park, leisure lakes, caves, and many interesting towns, markets, and chateaux. Lascaux II is 45 minutes away.
