The middle and most ancient part of the farmhouse la Ferme offers an atmospheric and spacious living space, overlooking the pool. Although it has retained "Sa Charme d'une autre Epoque", a lot of work has been done to ensure a good level of comfort.
The "séjour" has heavy oak beams, old stone walls and a quarry tiled floor, which help keep it cool even in the hottest of summers.The new and modern kitchen is equipped to our full standard.
Upstairs, the beamed bedroom has a 5ft queen-sized bed with a lovely French embroidered canopy. The modern and spacious en-suite bathroom has a bath with hand shower attachment, walk-in shower, w.c.and hand wash basin

Activities
The 14m x 7m swimming pool has a deep end of 2.2m and a shallow end of 0.9m with roman steps. It is near the edge of a gentle grass slope and benefits from pastoral views and inspiring sunsets. Sun beds are provided around the pool.
The surrounding gardens are mostly laid to lawn with plenty of trees for shade. Each property has its own private courtyard area with a table and chairs provided for four people so you can share a barbecue, apertifs or a meal with your neighbours. Also for each house is a gas BBQ, deck/sun chairs and a set of boules for those of you with a competitive edge (or the energy).
If the tranquil surroundings still leave just a touch more "détente" needed (or the strenuous task of relaxing, swimming or boules causes aching muscles), then why not book Katie, a fully qualified Remedial Therapist, to give you a deep relaxing massage.
Our land is designated a "Reserve de repeuplement" by the local Chasse which means there is no hunting allowed on it and it has therefore become a refuge for all the local wildlife.
Fumel is well situated for all the tourist attractions such as the famous cave paintings at Lascaux, the Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon habitats around Les Eyzies, the magnificent châteaux at Monbazillac & Beynac, cloisters at Cadouin, Beaumont and Villeréal Bastide towns, ancient churches, ruined chateaux, beautiful views, walks and river trips and local arts and crafts.
Bergerac has many historically interesting places to visit, jazz on Wednesday evenings and on the first Sunday of every month the colourful "Flea Market" bursts with activity and (occasional!) antique bargains.
Golf is available at three different courses all within 30 minutes drive. There is a choice of lakes within 20 minutes drive, offering wind surfing, fishing and swimming. An absolute must is canoeing, with swimming & fishing on the beautiful Dordogne river.
There is a riding stable close by at Boisse with horse-drawn painted wagons for hire by the day and stables north of Bergerac with organised night rides through the woodlands.
Balloon flights from Duras and microlight flights from Cavarc, whilst at Issigeac, bicycles can be hired by the day and two tennis courts are available by the hour to start the day off properly!!
