Description from manager

Owner's description:

Welcome to villa: a charming 17th Century property in the heart of the Limousin-Perigord National Park.

Aillac is a spacious, stone farmhouse that offers comfortable accommodations for a holiday rental for up to 9 people in four bedrooms. It has been renovated with great care to maintain its original character. The 10 x 5m private swimming pool is fully terraced and alarmed. It is for your exclusive use.

villa is on 7 acres of completely private grounds within the Perigord-Limousin National Park.

This is an ideal location for those who enjoy nature in unspoilt surroundings. You can play football in the garden, read in the shade, or sit under the parasols with a drink, overlooking the pool. There is a barbeque for your use.

The cities of Limoges and Perigueux are approximately 40 minutes away. Aillac is just 5 kms from either La Coquille or Chalus for everyday shopping and services. Limoges airport is 40 minutes away by car. villa has everything you need for a relaxing time in the heart of the French countryside.

Note: the advertised prices are for 8 guests. The chateau can sleeps an extra guest at an additional cost of £20/person/week.

villa is located in a small hamlet of houses 2km away from the beautiful village of St. Pierre de Frugie.  It is found halfway between Limoges and Perigueux, on the edge of the Dordogne, bordering the Limousin.  The farmhouse is set within the Parc Naturel du Perigord-Limousin and surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Limoges Airport is located approximately 40 minutes away. Calais is a 6-7 hour drive.

The towns of La Coquille and Chalus - where Richard the Lionheart was fatally wounded - are nearby. The prehistoric caves at Les Eyzies and old towns such as Rocamadour, Bergerac, and St. Emilion are within reasonable distance.

There are several medieval market towns within easy driving distance of the farmhouse.  Thiviers has a traditional farmers' market and Piegut has a market every Wednesday where you can buy fresh fish, oysters, and local produce.  Nontron, the principal town of the Perigord Vert, is not very far away. It has ancient ramparts and a fine square from the 18th century. Visit the chateau at Jumilhac le Grand to experience spectacular views.

The local produce of the area includes foie gras, truffles, cepes, confit, and clafoutis. Guests will find Cep wild mushrooms growing in the farmhouse garden. Local wines cover all budgets from Bergerac to St. Emilion, and Pineau to Cognac. The vineyards in Bordeaux and distilleries in Cognac are well worth a day out.

villa is 40 minutes from the cities of Limoges and Perigueux. Between them you will find the usual tourist attractions, caves, chateaux, churches, aquariums, war memorials and museums. 

The town of Brantome, known as 'The Venice of the Perigord Vert', offers a lovely day out: perhaps try canoeing in the picturesque setting, followed by a picnic.

There are plenty of fun days out in the local region, including velo-railing (an unusual experience of biking on train tracks), quad biking, karting, and Acrobois (acrobatics in the woods). There are various swimming lakes in the vicinity of the farmhouse, and plenty of private lakes for fishing.
