With lovely views of the surrounding countryside, Maison Grandiose is a very special home in a beautifully secluded spot. Yet you are only minutes by car from the idyllic village of Limeuil, where the Vézère and Dordogne rivers meet and the charming market town of Le Bugue.
Drive down the long lane and you are greeted with a grand stone entrance, leading to the courtyard and picturesque stone house. Step inside to superb living space with a wonderful sitting room with wood-burning stove and an amazing kitchen-diner where you can cook up a feast using local delights from the nearby market. In the summer open up the French windows as you dine with family and friends or cosy up by the wood-burning fire in cooler evenings. Each of the four pretty bedrooms in the main house opens up to the lovely stone terrace that surrounds the delightful home whilst the fifth bedroom is in a sweet separate cottage featuring a romantic roll-top bath plus its own kitchen and living area.
Head down the steps to the glorious swimming pool with so much space for bathing in the sun or dining al-fresco by the summer kitchen or wander over the field for a leisurely game of tennis on the court.
This is a great location near both the Vézère and Dordogne rivers, an area full of pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, vibrant local markets, canoeing on the rivers and unspoilt views of stunning countryside.
