Stunning farm house on gorgeous grounds
If you’re wanting to feel like you actually “live” in France, this is your property. The farmhouse oozes charm as it’s been the family’s well loved weekender for decades. Complete with family portraits, years of crockery and bits and pieces. A sterile holiday home this is not! The grounds of the property have you thinking you’re staying at your own Château, acres of lush green lawns and probably the best view from any swimming pool in France - 4 castles, whilst doing laps. Absolutely stunning property! Only criticism is that being a very old farm house, it was quite dusty. However I did mention this to the owners and they were going to discuss with the housekeeper. All in all, beautiful stay in beautiful countryside.
Hello Julia, we were delighted to welcome you to our house and that your stay went well! The house exists since the 17th century and the walls are stone. The stones always leave a little deposit on the walls and we can not help it. Obviously, this is not a new house as you can have in Dubai .. :) The paintings were redone this year as well as the sofas of the living room. We are happy you enjoyed the view of the castles. Do not hesitate to come back whenever you want! Nathalie et Denis
Beautifully situated with magical views!
Our family of six, including our great uncle and a two year old grand daughter had the pleasure of renting this gorgeous home and property, close to Beynac, for twelve days in late September/ early October of this year.
The ample property is located in a quietly magical setting on a plain with long views in the heart of the Dordogne, surrounded by four chateaux, all set well up in the surrounding hillside so they are all easily seen from some point on the property. There is also an elegant and massive salt water pool area, well away from the house in a perfect spot for catching the incredible views or watching the hot air balloons float by, while cooling off and enjoying the long lingering late afternoon sun. After a day of hiking, kayaking, visiting a chateau or enjoying a late lunch somewhere close by, the pool area is a great lure to bring you back home.
The home is a spacious old stone mas, well-equipped, with a separate main floor master wing with large bathroom including a good soaker tub, a second story double bedroom with en-suite bath and a third story with two double bedrooms and a shared bathroom.Though simply outfitted, the bedrooms and bathrooms are confortable and very private.
The large family style eat-in kitchen is fully equipped and there is a gracious and attractive living room, a powder room, and two large outdoor eating areas front and back, to complete this ample accommodation. Though not bright inside, the home is tastefully outfitted in a traditional manner and is very charming and comfortable.
For active fun, not only can you swim but there is an excellent trampoline for the young and young at heart to help wear off some of the local fois gras that you are bound to be sampling in the area, not to mention some of the offerings from the many restaurants close by.
Close to so many points of interest, we found this home not only inviting and warm, but also in a very practical location that created easy opportunities for our family of all ages, offering a number of fun activities to choose from close by.
There is another large home on the property built of a lovely new stone that was not occupied during our stay. Though we did not meet the owners, we were welcomed by a charming local gentleman who cared for the properties and our needs during our visit.
A rare find! We hope to go back!
Absolutely Wonderful @Vezac
This property was just great. Even more beautiful than the pictures, a terrific location, and you really do see 4 castles from the property. Actually have pictures of 4 hot air balloons rising up over the swimming pool with one of the castles in the background. The property and house are impeccably maintained, their caretaker, Jean Pierre, was always available and helpful, the interiors are lovely, comfortable and welcoming.
We were 2 couples but the house could have comfortably held more. Appliances were up to date and well functioning (not always the case in rentals). We all loved it!
We will definitely rent this property again.
Thank you dear Barry for your nice comment!
you left the house very clean! we would love you to come back next time and we will offer you the 2nd house too if you wish!
she will be just finished! have a good winter and see you soon!
nathalie and Denis
We had a fantastic week in Vezac. This property, its facilities as well as the surrounding villages and countryside are amazing. We will definitely be going back in years to come.
Ce fut un plaisir de vous avoir chez nous! Revenez quand vous voulez! La maison était impeccable! L' année prochaine nous aurons refait encore d'autres travaux d'agrément dans le jardin avec des plantations supplémentaires! à bientôt! Nathalie
Dream Away from Home
This is definitely one of the best family vacation experiences we have ever had. This property is more lovely than could be expected and it was immediately obvious that much care went into creating this estate. It does not feel like a rental property but a much loved home that we were privileged to share. The attention to detail from the beautiful interiors and furnishings to the magnificent landscape design made it difficult to leave and go out sightseeing! My husband and I, our two adult daughters, their friend and our teenage son were in heaven. When we did decide to go out, the location was perfectly centralized and within 5 to 10 minutes to the Dordogne river, all the beautiful villages and chateaux. Jean Pierre, the caretaker, was so sweet and Nathalie was always quick with any question we had. I pray that we can return some day! Thank you so much for this amazing experience!
It is with pleasure that we welcomed you to the Bois de Selve! It is with pleasure that we will welcome you again! Come also in winter, autumn or spring (we rent occasionally this season)! See you soon! Nathalie
This house and its surroundings are magical. From waking up to hot air balloons over the house to visiting the stunning gardens of the chateau just up the road, or just basking in the sun a few yards from the sunflowers by the quiet pool... We were well received, everything was perfect and exactly like the description. Nathalie is an excellent host who made us feel very welcome. You cannot go wrong with this house. This was our second stay and we will be back.
Dear Jody, we were very happy to meet and have you! We are very sensitive to your appreciation because we really care to make the house as welcoming and warm as possible, constantly improving its decor. We are happy that you have spent a great time in the Bois de Selve, which is our family's favourite place. You are welcome back any time! Best, Nathalie
