Why the Dordogne/Charente border region?
The borders of the Dordogne, Limousin and Charente offer the opportunity to explore the beautiful villages of the northern Dordogne such as Piégut and the diverse landscapes of these very different areas. Francophiles will love the river towns, historic sights, unspoiled countryside and superb markets, cuisine and wine (and cognac). This is a place to enjoy the slower pace of French life and unwind for a week or two. Cognac-tasting is of course a 'must' in these parts and there are plenty of distilleries open to the public. Options for days out are plentiful and varied with visits to Cognac and Angouleme recommended.

Accommodation

Beautifully-presented & well-equipped 5 bedroom farmhouse with fenced and heated pool, all in extensive grounds of 30 acres

Le Petit Mas enjoys a glorious hilltop setting, with miles of countryside spread out before you and vineyards above. This tranquil spot is something of a well-kept secret.

Every floor of this three-level building is an attractive combination of antique furnishings, rustic homely touches and contemporary art, all offset by exposed beams and solid stonework. An airy living room complete with baby grand piano and a traditional well-equipped farmhouse kitchen help make this an ideal base for extended families, who may have brought grandparents along.

Le Petit Mas is laid out as follows:

Downstairs
Entrance hall
Living room with fireplace and baby grand piano, French doors lead to terraces
Kitchen with oven, hob, toaster, kettle, coffee machine, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and dining table
Separate WC

Upstairs - first floor
Master double bedroom with bath and washbasin
Double bedroom
Double bedroom (with ladder to children’s dormitory for emergency use only)
Shower room with WC
All doubles are convetribel and can be made into twins on request

Upstairs - second floor

Double bedroom with additional single bed with en-suite bathroom and WC

Outside, on the south-facing terrace, an evening meal is a sunset-lit affair and with two other terraces.  Altogether there are over 30 acres of grounds to explore.

The pool terrace is walled on three sides, accessed from the house via the gated blue fence (pictured, with the house in the background). The pool area features a shaded veranda plus the generously-sized pool itself: 15m x 6m (depth 0.7m – 2m), fenced, Roman steps, open June to mid-September, pool is heated to 25°C. (Heating above 25°C is available at €250/week weather permitting.)

In summary, Le Petit Mas is an delightful & magical place to enjoy a week or two away from it all.
