This is a lovely 5 bedroom farmhouse with pool in the Aquitaine region of France. Perched on a hill above Serignac-Peboudou, this luxury self-catering farmhouse is over 150 years old, and has been lovingly restored to a high standard to give guests all the modern creature comforts they could wish for.
Inside, there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom is a stunning space with exposed stone wall and super kingsize bed. It enjoys an ensuite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms, one with ensuite bathroom as well as two twin bedrooms, each with two single beds. These rooms share a family bathroom. There is an additional WC on the ground floor. Also on the ground floor is a large farmhouse kitchen. For the keen cooks amongst you, this is extremely well equipped with professional Zwilling J.A. Henckels pans, cast iron cookware, Sabatier knives, hob, oven, microwave, two fridges and a dishwasher. A washing machine and dryer as well as a separate freezer can be found in the adjacent utility room. A large wooden table seats 10 providing the perfect space for breakfast or dinner. Also on this floor is a beautiful living room enjoying views across the pool to the fields and rolling hillsides beyond. Comfortable sofas and chairs provide a relaxing space in which to enjoy each others company, whilst there is a wood burning stove which guests are welcome to use in the cooler months of the year. The rest of the house is heated by this and a second wood burning stoves as well as via electric heaters in each room. Outside, the terrace provides the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cuppa whilst additional seating is provided around the pool area. There is plenty of space in the well tended garden for outdoor games, including table tennis.
The house is near to some beautiful towns and villages including St Emillion, Villereal, Eymet and Issigeac. The latter is a small Medieval village 20 km away from the house, home to the stunning church of Saint-Felicien and characterised by narrow streets lined with charming half timber houses and laid out in the shape of a snail. It's also a great place to buy some stunning stylish designer goods. We would also recommend visiting the market in the pretty town of Villereal. This vibrant, lively town has a market every Saturday. For the wine lovers amongst you, head to St Emilion, famous for its Grand Cru wine. Plenty of shops will offer tastings so that you can sample the wonderful vino. However, don't miss out on the opportunity to head underground too by booking a tour of the underground catacombs. Also worth a visit are Perigord and Eymet. The latter is an attractive town dating back to 1270 on the banks of the River Dropt. Visitors can still explore the castle ruins here but the river actually offers visitors plenty of other activities to enjoy including canoeing and fishing. It's also worth hiring bikes and exploring the region on two wheels. All these sightseeing spots boast some superb cafes and restaurants too. Bergerac Airport is just 25 minutes away.
