Farmhouse, Le Pible.
Farmhouse in Dordogne, France
Property Details of Dordogne Farmhouse
The farmhouse of Le Pible is found nestling on the hillside below the small Roman village of Montignac Le Coq. One of numerous ancient hill top villages that make up this pretty and interesting corner of rural south west France.
Surrounded by gently rolling fields, Le Pible sits quietly amongst meadows of wild flowers, corn and sunflowers. The light woodlands are home to nightingales and numerous birds of prey, including buzzards, kites and owls, and the natural fresh water springs attract an assortment of wildlife.
The farmhouse provides a perfect self catering holiday for the whole family: completely detached and away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. The 18th century house has been lovingly restored retaining a traditional French country feel. Incorporating all the original stone and timber features which give it so much character, the house is equipped with totally modern amenities, alleviating any worries of antique French plumbing!
Situated in a pretty courtyard, the farmhouse forms a square with the other original farm dwellings, only one of which, the wine chais, is inhabited, by ourselves. We welcome guests on arrival and are happy to assist or advise should you so wish.
The swimming pool is 10m x 5m and for the sole use of the farmhouse guests, set within the ruined walls of an old barn it is both secluded and bathed in sunshine all day long. Conforming to French legislation, the pool is safely but discretely enclosed, providing a safer holiday environment.
We have 7 acres in total, and these are laid to meadow and gardens around the courtyard buildings. Splendid mature trees offer shady corners in which to relax at your leisure with copious space for children to enjoy football, cricket, boules etc.
There is table tennis in the open barn and bicycles on site for exploring country lanes and tracks. But if finding a little corner to read your book in dappled shade is the order of the day, then look no further! a seat or hammock under the fruit trees of the walled garden, is the perfect spot! Le Pible suits perfectly all those wishing to enjoy the peace and tranquility found in the perfect - away from it all - location.
The open plan style of the ground floor centres around the farmhouse kitchen. Itself extensively equipped for cooking enthusiasts and lovers of good food, together with fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave etc. Attractively furnished to compliment the oak beams and mellow stone walls, French doors permit the sun and warmth to filter in from the courtyard.
The comfortable dining area beyond enjoys tranquil views, and French doors lead onto the south west facing terrace 10m x 4m. Equipped with table, chairs and barbecue, the terrace is shaded from the hot sun until mid afternoon making it an ideal place to enjoy lazy lunches, and congenial dinners under the starry night skies.
The charming sitting room is sympathetically furnished around the stone fireplace and one of two original elm staircases spirals up through two floors. South west facing French doors permit the setting sun to radiate through the house to end the day.
One of two family shower rooms with shower, WC, hand basin, heated towel rail and shaver/hairdryer socket is found on the first floor and a further shower room with WC etc and large walk-in shower, is on the ground floor.
There is a laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board etc.
From the kitchen, the second staircase leads also to the first floor, where there are four pretty bedrooms sleeping a maximum of 8 people. Two of which contain double beds and two with twin beds. Each is simply furnished in French country style and charming vignettes of French life abound from every window.
A telephone is installed in order that guests may be contacted if they so wish, and outgoing calls or internet services can be obtained with the use of a phone card. There is a portable cassette/CD player together with a TV and UK format videocassette player, with a selection of films-on-video and children's titles.
All fresh linen is supplied, including towels, and the beds are ready made up on your arrival.
In preparing our farmhouse for your holiday, and so that you leave with happy memories of an enjoyable and relaxing stay, we have paid great attention to every last detail, both large and small, in the hope that you will want to make return visits to le Pible, and recommend us to your friends.
Bookings are from Saturday to Saturday.

Montignac Le Coq in the region of Aquitaine, is an ideal location: although this is a rural part of France and the pace of life very relaxed, there is also plenty to see and do for those who prefer a more active holiday.

Pretty drives along quiet roads will bring you to many fine old cities such as Angouleme, Perigueux and Cognac. Many famous Cognac houses offer guided tours, not forgetting tastings! Of course the world famous wine village of Saint Emilion is not far away where one can visit their traditional caves and buy bottles to enjoy during your vacation!
Fabulous beaches with surfing waves are within an hour and half drive, and nearby rivers make peaceful picnic locations. Drift lazily down the Dronne river in a canoe or take a tailor made pony trek through the quiet countryside, these and many other activities are all readily available. There are 18 hole golf courses within 40 minutes drive all excellently maintained and reasonably priced, but just 3 km away you will find the Manoir de Longeveau where there is a 9 hole golf course, several tennis courts with a most friendly atmosphere.
Local restaurants mix culture and cuisine, both musically and artistically, the choice is wonderful, and suits all tastes and pockets.
