Beautiful stone villa centrally located in the most desirable part of the Dordogne - the Perigord Noir. Located in a hamlet on a no-through-road (no passing traffic) the location is very peaceful and enjoys beautiful views across the village and the surrounding countryside. The villa is just minutes from fairy tale settings (Chateau de Commarque, Les Jardins de Marqueyssac), historical sites (Font de Gaume, Lascaux Caves, Chateau Castlenaud) and medieval villages (Beynac, Les Eyzies, Sarlat-la-Caneda).

Our local centre at Meyrals is just 3km away and provides a bakery, a bar and 2 restaurants.
This is a wonderful, charming and very special property that is full of character and beautifully furnished.
