About this property

Perigordine Style House With Heated Swimming Pool. This villa is in a rural setting.

Brand new to the holiday rental market in April 2017. This newly built Perigordine style holiday house with heated swimming pool is situated in a quiet woodland setting. A superbly built stone house with wooden floors, oak beams, full of charm and character. The interior of the holiday house is extremely spacious, with a large lounge, homely kitchen diner and 3 comfortable bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms. Lovely views, particularly from the private swimming pool and terrace, over the surrounding fields and countryside. Private parking.

Nestled in the hills above the village of Salviac, where you will find several bars/restaurants, general shops, depot de pain, bank, church and, just outside of the village, a small supermarket. Cazals, approximately 7kms by car, is another charming village with a boulangerie, mini supermarket, more general shops and a swimming lake. The main medieval market town of Gourdon, just 20 minutes away, is a vibrant town, full of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and pavement cafes.

Le Papillon is ideally placed for visiting all the attractions of the virtually unexplored department of the Lot, the beautiful Dordogne region and perfect for a calm, tranquil and peaceful holiday.
