Villa overview - owner's description
If Jane Austen's characters took a holiday in the south of France, they might select this storied villa in the Dordogne. Generations of family ownership have each left their mark; you could spend days investigating the historic trinkets and artwork on the walls. However, it's certain you'll be drawn outside to the grounds, where a 70-hectare walnut grove and a private pool beckons you.
From the moment you see this ivy-covered family villa, you'll fall in love. The carefully tended grounds, pretty walking paths, and the allure of the surrounding countryside all conspire to give you a taste of refined country life in days gone by. Inside you'll delight at the antique furniture and decor, especially the hunting lodge style living room.
Located in the commune of Liorac-sur-Louyre, you'll find picturesque chateaux and town markets all around. However, this holiday villa is not as remote as it feels - it's a mere 20 minute drive to Bergerac, the beating heart of the Dordogne (and site of the closest airport). Here, visit the Musee du Vins to learn about the wine of the region, and then put your knowledge to practical use at the dozens of wineries nearby.
