On top of a hill this characteristic house is build, with its lovingly designed interior. It is surrounded by nature on its own 3,4 ha and has a stunning and unspoiled view over the valley of the small river the Ceou. Oaks, pine trees and junipers define the landscape and in spring lots of orchids flower on the sloping grounds and meadows. It is very quiet; neighbours are far away and in the night millions of stars sparkle in the sky. On the terrace at the southwest side one can enjoy the most spectacular sunsets. The sunny east side is best for morning coffee. At all sides one can just walk into nature and start a hiking tour. As well as from the master bedroom on the ground floor which has the bathroom next door. Easy when stairs might be an obstacle. The living room and open plan kitchen, form one big space of ca 75 mtr2. Sliding French windows open on the terrace and the view. In colder seasons the huge open fire gives extra warmth in addition to the central heating. The grounds are divided by stonewalls in which one sometimes can find an ‘abri’, a small stone shelter. Close to the house there is a walled meadow with such a small shelter that - in earlier times - probably served as a drinking place for sheep. On the side of this shelter is a barbeque. In the woods, in some places, old grape vines still grow. The region was well known for its wine until diseases destroyed the vines. Today one can enjoy the fine production again.

The Dordogne is an old region with an eventful history. Within a one-hour drive there are lots of interesting sights. Huge castles such as Beynac, Castelnaud and Montfort, high above the Dordogne River, the ruins of Commarque and its fascinating surroundings. Dating from far before those times is the grotto of Lascaux where in a facsimile the old beautiful drawings are perfectly rendered. All over through the whole district there are grottos worked on by human hands or other ones where stalactites and stalagmites offer a fascinating picture. In the Gouffre de Padirac one can sail the underground river. Domme, an old bastide town high above the Dordogne River offers a phenomenal view and one can visit a beautiful grotto there. Rocamadour, the old pilgrimage place is build vertically along a sheer precipice and part of the road to Santiago de Compostella. There is hardly a place in the area that is not worth seeing! Hiking trails are easy to find and lead past old farmhouses and sometimes a megalithic grave. Old paths between stonewalls connect the hamlets, the ‘chemins ruraux’. There are many small Roman churches where in summer, in some of them, concerts are held. The VVV’s in Sarlat (Dordogne) and Gourdon (Lot) give information about concerts, markets and much more. There are golf courses. A beautiful one near Vitrac runs alongside the Dordogne River. On the Dordogne River one can rent canoes and there are shuttle services. It is a delightful way to see the landscape from a different point of view. Many villages organise a ‘vide grenier’ or brocante markets. They are indicated by colourful signs on the roadsides. Bouzic is a hamlet that used to have many more ‘cheminees’. Looking over the bridge across the Ceou you see the small trout in the clear water. On the banks a kingfisher flashes past. In some places of the Ceou, you can picknick on small beaches while the kids play in the shallow water. In the summer on Tuesday evenings a Marche de Producteurs is held in Bouzic. At different stalls food, fresh from the farms can be bought and consumed at long tables. There is a huge barbeque and the local wine is good. Other villages in the neighbourhood also organise this kinds of lively evenings. Shopping can be done in Daglan, 4 km, and in Cenac, 12 km, where on Tuesday morning a market is held. Gourdon is a bigger town with on Saturday a farmers market and supermarchees are open all week in summer. Each Sunday there is a nice small market in Cazals with ecological products. Further on you will find Les Arques , a delightful little village with Zadkine’s museum. Also from this village nice walking trips are possible, for instance to a small chapel with charming old fresco’s. As said before, there is hardly a place not worth seeing!
