About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Helen Burton

We moved to the Dordorgne in 2005 having fallen in love with the area on holiday the previous year!!! When we walked into the walled garden it was love at first sight. We had 3 children under 3 and the house and garden gave us all the space, freedom but security we had so longed for. It felt like the countryside but in a small town. The walk into Riberac is only 5 to 10 minutes and offers all basic services. We wanted to be able to walk to the bakers and school.

Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? Riberac is a bustling market town, with all the services you can need, and one of the biggest markets in the Dordogne. It's also a great place from which to explore the Dordogne.
Unique benefits of property La Charrouffie is an old property full of character and charm completely enclosed by beautiful stone walls. Within these walls, set in a large garden offering seclusion and shade are the main house, a small independent gite and a private heated swimming pool. The house is perfect for small children, as well as being luxurious for their parents and grandparents!
