700 year old farm house in the Périgord

This beautiful, romantic farmhouse instantly warms you with its very personal charm. It was built around 1400 out of blocks of white chalk stone. The hamlet of La Roussie, part of Lusignac, is one of a chain of medieval villages in the Périgord with a famous church. La Roussie consists of a group of about 12 farms which used to produce walnut oil.

What first strikes when you enter the garden is the enormous space and lovely view over soft rolling hills, cornfields and dears running wild. There are bountiful fruit and nut trees to pick from and several places to sunbathe and dine. Areas have been created for children to play and the garden is filled with high quality garden furniture, a big gas barbeque and a fire place near the pool.

When you enter the house, the big entrance hall, old beams, terra cotta floors and the sent of wood fires that were burnt here for centuries, leave you with a feeling of nostalgia. Old stone mantelpieces line the rooms and the wide oak floor boards are stunning. The house has been decorated with local antiques and all bedrooms are spacious and light, with wooden floors and very comfortable beds and duvets.

Although the farm is ancient, it offers all modern facilities to ensure your comfort during your stay. The kitchen is especially well equipped and you will find most any appliance you would have at home, in order to enjoy cooking for your friends and family. The huge fire in the kitchen makes a perfect barbeque on chilly evenings.

There are many places of interest to visit in the near surroundings. The river 'Dronne' runs through the valleys. You can rent a canoe or a horse anywhere and lunch by the river or in one of the old cities nearby. Most guest however, tend to stay at home, which offers most anything you may desire during a perfect, romantic holiday in the clean air of the Périgord.
