Prestigious holiday farmhouse in Bergerac, Perigord Pourpre. The house itself stands in its own grounds with lots of trees and swimming pool. The traditional stone-built farmhouse stands in its own private grounds of over 1 acre, and comes complete with its own large enclosed private swimming pool (16*7M). Close to the historic town of Bergerac, on the edge of Pecharmant vineyards, it is a prime base from which to visit all the touristic places of interest in the Dordogne as well as the Percharmant, Monbazillac and Bordeaux vineyards.
Le Cireysou has been renovated in a manner that provides all the comforts of modern life yet retains the original charm and character of the original 300 year old farm building.
The farmhouse stands at the end of a quiet country lane with little to disturb you other than the nearby cows and occasional tractor.
Grounds & Swimming pool: The house is surrounded by local farmers fields - with cows - providing a very peaceful and relaxing environment rich in wildlife. The grounds around the house cover 6000m2 so there is plenty of space to play games (football, cricket etc.) on the grass or to lie under one of the many trees.
The swimming pool is 16m long by 7m wide and ranges from 1-2m deep which makes it a very large and enjoyable pool in which to swim. Situated approx 6m from the house the pool area is completely enclosed and private with a patio area and covered terrace. To prevent any allergies we have chosen a water treatment without chlorine which is provided through a salt machine system. An infra red alarm system protects the pool from accidental access. We are environmental friendly and we only use organic pest killers and no weed killer.
Wine Tasting & 'Cuisine Perigourdine'!: Le Cireysou lies at the crossroads of the Bergerac, Monbazillac and Pecharmant vineyards. Pecharmant is the most prestigious Bergerac Appellation Controlee and is fast becoming a sort after wine. If you prefer sweet wine, then head straight to the vineyards of Monbazilliac. A visit to the famous Chateau Monbazilliac is an absolute must and maybe you can even combine it with one of their summer concerts. Locals will be happy to explain the vinification process and show you their cellars which have been in their family for generations and maintained with great love and care. You are also only 1 hour away from the stunningly picturesque medieval village of Saint-Emilion and within easy access of many other famous Bordeaux vineyards.
Do not forget to enjoy the famous Cuisine Perigourdine making the most of the region's duck population - the 'foie gras' is to die for! 'Magret' is also excellent on the BBQ! We can recommend local producers if you wish.
Dordogne touristic attractions : The property is a few hundred yards from the Dordogne river. You can follow the river up to Sarlat (45 minutes ) and visit some beautiful places enroute: Beynac & Cazenac, Domme and its ramparts, La Roque Gageac and Sarlat itself.
There is a golf course and leisure complex in Mouleydier: Chateau 'LES MERLES' offering an 18 hole golf course, tennis courts etc.
