Pleasingly symmetrical, the lavender blue of this house bursts through the trees as if to celebrate the ever changing nature of colour. From the outset, the property inspires a form of joyful frivolity that continues well past the front door. Golden parquet flooring and white walls enhance the multitude of bright colours that are scattered here and there with a carefree spirit. Outside, the the orchard paths punctuate the surrounding countryside as far as the eye can see. Everything is so harmonious, it is hard not to picture a joyful meal around a beautiful table savouring the happy simplicity of this place.
We were looking for a quiet and authentic place surrounded by nature. This part of the Dordogne is far from being invaded by tourists, but it has all the necessary attractions - tranquillity, breathtaking landscapes, the Atlantic ocean nearby, sublime gastronomy, the internationally renowned wine region of Bordeaux and prestigious vineyards such as Pomerol and Saint-Émilion. The region is extremely green and the locals are welcoming. Hiking fanatics and cyclists will appreciate the many routes across the ever changing landscape that has different surprises in store depending on the season.
Built in 1888, the mansion is set amidst hundreds of acres of vineyards and orchards. The concrete vats under the house are a nod to the days when wine was produced here. The house is perfectly symmetrical and has large windows overlooking orchards as far as the eye can see. Some original architectural features have survived, such as the flooring of the entire house, the kitchen tiles, the shutters and windows, and the marble fireplace in one of the bedrooms.
In the 19th century, the house was at the centre of the cultivated lands that surrounded it. The old purchase order books from the early 20th century (which we found in the attic) show that wine and fruits were produced and sold here.
Here, our guests can recharge their batteries in a peaceful and calm setting. We do everything we can to make them feel at home. We offer beautiful, spacious and tastefully furnished rooms, each of which has a superb view of the orchards and our extensive garden with a large variety of trees. In winter, the large living room is perfect for reading a book by the fire or simply enjoying the view. We serve a hearty breakfast and, several times a week, we prepare a table d'hôte which consists of three dishes. The food is homemade with organic ingredients and ingredients from local producers. We do our best to respect nature, animals and producers.
