In this bucolic setting, much-travelled owners Fabienne and Arnaud and their two small children offer a personal mix of savvy sophistication and traditional ‘Gîte à la Ferme’ where guests can connect with the place: chill out by the pool, feed the animals (including beautiful horses and donkeys), explore the grounds. The classic 17th-century Quercy architecture of curvy rooflines, golden stonework and intricate carpentry frames interiors done in a peaceful country style focusing on natural materials and soft furnishings in neutral colours with interesting antique prints on the walls. The overall feel is contemporary, pared down and comfortable, while brocante finds and original structural elements add depth. Sleek, ultra-modern kitchens are a delight and each gîte has a private garden or terrace. Fresh bread and croissants are delivered every morning, and possibly one of Fabienne’s treats. You can hike or potter, watch birds, enjoy the tranquility of these many acres, or venture further afield to discover the treasures of the Périgord.
