Villa overview - owner's description

La Maison des Moines is near enough to the Dordogne for foie gras and great wines, whilst benefiting from the warmer and drier climate of the Lot. But this unique home could be anywhere - what it has to offer starts with its rich history and ends with everything both inside and outside its thick, stone walls.

The story began in the 16th century when it first started to be the home of monks and priests. For centuries they taught music in the presbyter and held performances in the barn, come theatre. It continued until modern times to be an important meeting and entertainment place for the community and the locals, in the nearby village of only 400 inhabitants, still reminisce fondly about the good times.

It's modern day version began with a dream…the dream of a family who discovered this beautiful and spiritual building and who decided to restore it and create an oasis of peace and calm, a retreat where to relax, unwind and nourish one's body, mind and soul with good food, good wine, silence and mesmerizing views of the countryside.

The result is a spacious and elegant home with high ceilings, plenty of original features and a clever and attractive blend of old and new.

Outside, amongst fragrant lavender, rosemary and heather is a pool and a terrace where guests will be hypnotized by the views across the countryside and to the recently restored Chateau de Theobon, in the distance.

Although it might be difficult to tear yourself away from the silence, there is plenty to do and see in the area too. A world-class golf course is only a 10-minute drive away, as are many other activities. Within reach are local restaurants and wineries, typical markets, brocantes and festivals and the quaint villages of Eymet, Issigeac and Castillones, as well as towns such as Bergerac and Sainte-Foy-La-Grande, with its fabulous market, or Marmande the tomato capital of France and home to its own Notre Dame. Explore the Dordogne along the river via Lalinde and Tremolat, then through the pretty Vallee de la Vezere, Les Eyzies de Tayac and Sarlat-la-Canede. It is even possible to drive to the Atlantic and visit Arcachon and the tallest dune in Europe, in Pyla.

La Maison des Moines is more than just a holiday home, it is a place to spend quality time with friends and family, unwinding and recharging away from the usual daily stresses and distractions and reconnecting with the things that matter most.
