Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? Capital of Black PĂ©rigord, Sarlat is an exceptionally preserved city. More than 1.000 years of architecture live through lanes, roofs of roofing stones and fair and hot stone walls. Domme is a very attractive bastide town, in one of the best locations possible and is possibly the most beautiful town in the Dordogne. The village of La Roque-Gageac is almost too perfect, its ochre-coloured houses sheltering under dramatically overhanging cliffs and is regularly winner of France's prettiest village contest. In the Middle Ages, Gourdon was an important place, deriving wealth and influence from the presence of four monasteries. Owing to the number of rivers and the local geology the Dordogne has some magnificent cave complexes. You will find two different types: 'Gouffres' are underground, whilst 'Grottes' are accessed from a rock face. There are spectacular villages built around cliffside troglodyte dwellings.
Unique benefits of property Idyllic getaway, set in tranquil woodland and close to all attractions. Peaceful with no passing people or traffic. Relax & unwind in a luxury fully equipped detached house with private garden
