Local Attractions:

Within 30 minutes drive of the property you find many beautiful, classified villages such as Bourdeilles, and Aubeterre-sur-Dronne with their picture-postcard settings, restaurants and galleries. Within 40 minutes you can drive to Brantome, the famous Venice of the Perigord Vert and gateway to the Parc Naturel Regional Perigord-Limousin. With its beautiful chateau, Romanesque bell tower, rivers, shops and restaurants, Brantome is an essential day trip destination.

Angouleme is a beautiful city 40 minutes drive to the north. It has a number of festivals including the Circuit International des Remparts and Piano en Valois. The former is a classic car festival held in September. The later a prestigious international piano festival held in October.

Just south of Angouleme is an outdoor rock climbing at Les Eaux Claires in Puymoyen.

Periqueux is not to be missed ( 50 mins drive). The regional capital it has the Vesunna Gallo Roman museum and stunning Saint - Font Cathedral.

If you are like me though, you will spend much of your time in the garden enjoying the abundant flowers and enchanting views with just the odd chicken and cow from the farm down the road to disturb you. On most days the only vehicle you might hear will be the farmer going about his daily business on the tractor. Mostly it is unbroken peace and utterly blissful.The large garden offers beautiful views across the valley. There are plenty of trees including Fig and Walnut trees providing shade. Ideal places to sit and relax, talk, eat or read. In the evening you can relax and admire the sunset. When the summer sun is out in full force then of course a dip in the cool waters of the pool is just a few steps away. If you are looking for relaxation on your holiday then you will find it here! Time seems to slow down as you pour yourself another cold drink...
