|Year property purchased||2007|
|Why this location?||We have travelled throughout France and settled here because we feel the area has so much to offer. It's close to both the sea and mountains, has great lakes for swimming and tele ski-ing and is ideal for our children and grandchildren to visit.
The airports are close and the drive to the tunnel is quite easy.
|Unique benefits of property||We lived in the house until 2010 and still feel it is our home, we come back as often as we can.. We have left many of our personal belongings and therefore know what makes a home more than just a 'holiday' home. We like our guests to treat this house as their home during their visit and to enjoy the experience.
We have purposely set the accommodation to comfortably suit 6 people. We do not want to offer ' sofa beds ; etc; as we would rather offer spacious living areas.
The area is dominated by pre-history, beautiful architecture and gastronomy. Whether you wish to visit caves with their drawings dating back 20,000 years, picnic by the banks of the Auvezere or Dordogne River or visit the local markets with some of the best produce France, all can be done easily from Belle Vue. The departmental 'capital' town of Perigueux is less than 30 kilometres away and the pedestrianised medieval city with its superbly restored lanes and squares around the cathedral is a great place for a coffee or lunch. The town has extensive Roman remains which are well worth exploring along with the excellent markets in the medieval city on Wednesdays and Saturdays. If you require some 'retail therapy' the large shopping complex in Perigueux will be worth a visit too! There are many pre-historic sites and caves in the area, the most important of which are located in the Vezere valley - Lascaux at Montignac is the most famous followed by the caves at Les Eyzies - all are within easy reach. Picturesque Brantome, the 'Venice' of the Dordogne surrounded by the river Dronne with its troglodyte caves is less than 40 kilometres distant, whilst nearby is the village of St. Jean de Cole - surely one of the most beautiful in France. The pretty town of Sarlat with its warren of alleys, virtually unchanged since the Middle Ages, lined with warm ochre stone houses must be seen and the medieval village of Domme perched on its rocky peak is easily accessible across the River Dordogne. World famous Rocamadour built on the side of a cliff can be visited further away to the south. There are lots of gardens to visit including the magnificent Les Jardins du Manoir d'Eyrignac and those at the Chateau de Hautefort.
The local area offers swimming lakes with beaches, possibilities for aquatic sport, various historic sights, for example Hautefort Chateau and Medical Museum. There are excellent restaurants and cafes offering regional dishes in the area. Canoes can be hired for the Auverreze that flows through the Village. Pony riding, Quad, Paint Ball and Mountain Bikes are also available locally. Fishing licences can be brought at the Cave
The local cuisine includes Limousin beef, foie gras, duck, walnuts and apples. Terrason has a market held on the Mediaeval Bridge across the river Vezere . The Thursday morning market at Terrason is not to be missed with a huge variety of fresh food, vegetables, flowers, clothes, wine, cheeses and fish.
