About Helder or Patricia Machado
Hello Helder and I would love to welcome you to La Ferriere its a peaceful place to stay set in lovely countryside. Its was our dream holiday destination before we lived here. Helder is originally from Portugal and I am from Yorkshire. When we got married we decided to make the move we found La Ferriere where we could offer the sort of place we loved to stay. Away from the everyday stress of life and somewhere Helder could practice and teach Tai Chi and Qi-Gong. We hope you will like it too.
Helder or Patricia Machado purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2015
Why Helder or Patricia Machado chose Saint-Sauveur
I came across this area while travelling by car from Paris to Barcelona. We booked a small hotel a few kms off the motorway to break the journey. It happened to be in the Dordogne. I will never forget the tranquillity - the green, milky stone buildings and tiny hamlets - the pace slowed to almost a stop and I fell in love in one night.. Returning the next month convincing Helder he had to see and feel it - we did and well the rest is history as they say..
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
La Ferriere is unique in that its a traditional perigordian style property set in 3 hectares of garden with a large infinity pool. Set amongst fields and forest on the top of the Dordogne valley but within 10 minutes drive to Bergerac, and the airport. Surrounded by vineyards the property was previously owned by the heirs of La Contess François de Saint-Exupéry whose family included the famous author of the book Le petit prince. Today you can still see the history of the life of this building with its arrow slit window in the wine cellar old stone steps up to the house and mill stone in the grounds. In the evening we regularly see wild deer grazing and pheasants in the winter months. You can join a Tai Chi or Qi-Gong class whilst holidaying with us or have a private lesson with Helder. Life goes on peacefully at La Ferriere with the best of cuisine countryside and fresh air and exercise has to offer in rural France.
