This comfortable 300-year-old farmhouse has uninterrupted views over its stream, lake, meadows and woods. With wildlife everywhere and miles of trails on the doorstep, it’s a delight for nature lovers.
Arrive to a sumptuous welcome hamper of Victoria’s brownies, honey from the estate, eggs, walnuts, wine and more, and get cooking in the large, well-equipped, kitchen. The local area has a whole range of restaurants, from simple to starred, and food markets to inspire. Do make time for one of Victoria’s pool-side buffet lunches or dinners too, together with the excellent Bergerac wines.
Fill your days with fun: there’s table tennis, a trampoline, badminton net and a huge heated pool surrounded by lawns. Wander antiques markets and overfill the boot; talk to Harris about a châteaux wine tour and some of Les Plus Beaux Villages such as Sarlat and Limeuil; visit the estate’s own prehistoric caves, used by the resistance during the war.
