Beautiful in a quiet location.
The property is exactly as it is in the pictures. It is not that old so still new and fresh. Georg and Petra have put a lot of hard work into restoring and presenting a beautiful property. The location is on the top of a valley surrounded by a handful of properties and so quiet. It is just outside Saint-Pardoux la-Riviere which has a small Auchan which does your needs well and has a petrol station which is handy. Georg and Petra have a house next door and when we arrived there was a beer in the fridge and a bottle of wine as well so a great start to our stay. It has everything you need and we used the outside kitchen more than the inside due to the great weather. The view is great, lots of chairs and sun loungers to get on and relax. Georg and Petra are great owners, extremely helpful and we had a great time. We have been to the area before so know it reasonably well and so lots of castles , caves (Grottes des Villars definitely worth a visit), markets (Brantome - a favourite for us), canoeing and with great wine and food whats not to like. Sarlat-la-Caneda is a couple of hours away and is a great town to visit. We had a great time, book up and you will not be disappointed.
Perfect for young fit people looking for somewhere off the beaten track
At a good distance from the Dordogne river, this is remote and secluded. The outdoor kitchen is great and in the garden there are shady places to sit.
Indoors there is a smart ground floor bathroom and kitchen. The stairs to the bedroom are steep and only safe for the young and fit. Upstairs the pitched roof is too low for you to stand upright. There is a day bed where one person can sleep downstairs.
I referred to the ceiling height of 1.60 m in my property description (equipment).
Conforme aux photos, cette location est propre, décorée avec beaucoup de goût. On se sent tout de suite chez soi. Il y a vraiment tout le nécessaire de cuisine.
L endroit à une vue magnifique et c est très calme pour se reposer
Je recommande vivement cette location
Traumhafte Erholung in den Hügeln des Perigord
Es ist ein wundervoller Ort, um die Seele baumeln zu lassen und neue Kraft und Energie aus der herrlichen Landschaft zu tanken. Das Häuschen ist sehr geschmack- und liebevoll von ihren Eigentümern renoviert und eingerichtet worden. Es ist alles, was man zum Kochen benötigt, in ausreichender Menge vorhanden. Besonders die Outdoorküche mit dem Fernblick ist ein Traum, die wir jeden Tag genutzt haben. Als Willkommensgruss gab es eine herrlich leckere Himbeermarmelade und im Kühlschrank gab es kalte Getränke.
Ganz herzlichen Dank, Frau und Herr Mertens, dass wir in Ihrem Urlaubsdomizil eine Woche verbringen durften. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder, wenn wir Urlaub in dieser Gegend planen.
The "La Maison au Verger" is located between the villages of Milhac-de-Nontron and Saint-Pardoux-la-Rivière on a hill. Geographically, one is here in the triangle of major cities Limoges, Angoulême and Périgueux - the latter the capital (all between 50 and 60 km). All these cities have airports, the university town of Limoges has an international station, Angoulême has a connection to the French TGV (2.5-hour drive from Paris).
In the 4 km away town Saint-Pardoux-la-Rivière one finds the essentials: bakery and butcher, a small supermarket, a doctor, a post office, a cash machine and a recommended restaurant. The nearest large towns are Nontron (northeast 15 km) and Thiviers (southwest 20 km). Here there are all shops and supermarkets, rewarding weekly markets and banks. The touristic place Brantôme with old abbey is southwest 24 km away.
Besides lounging, sunbathing and good food, there are opportunities for swimming in lakes, hiking, climbing, horse riding, cycling, canoeing and cave of Villars in the immediate vicinity. Small medieval towns and villages with colorful street markets, music and folklore festivals in the summer, fortified castles and the famous caves of Lascaux with cave paintings of early man are some worthwhile destinations. Mushroom pickers come during the late summer and autumn on their costs, for which the Dordogne is known.
The capital Périgueux, with the largest dome church in Europe, combines her typical regional architecture with southern charm. The wine town of Bergerac and tourist attractive medieval little town like Sarlat-la-Caneda Domme or are (100 km) located further south. The Atlantic coast to the west is about 160 km (Royan, Gironde estuary or Ile d'Oléron), Bordeaux in the southwest is 170km away.
