House overview - owner's description

Peaceful house set in the heart of the Dordogne

Very quiet house set in seven and half acres with peaceful uninterrupted country views. Away from the hustle and bustle but within very easy driving distance to Bergerac, Perigeux and Bordeaux. This property is South facing, so enjoying the sun from early morning until night.

The in ground pool is 8 metres by 4 metre and is heated.

Other airports include Bordeaux at 100kms and Angoulême at 80 km.

The garden has many fruit trees. Nectarine. plum, cherry, apple and walnuts, figs- do help yourself when staying, dont want it to go to waste!

All prices include use of electric and water.In the 8th century a monastery dedicated to Saint Astier was built. The original monastery was destroyed by Normans and rebuilt the following century. There is a statue of Saint Astier in one of the small squares near the church. This statue is in bronze and was erected in 1901 to replace a stone statue which had fallen into ruins.

The village has a pleasant centre, spreading out from the church, with some colombage (half-timber) houses and some Renaissance houses. Walk down Rue de la Fontaine to see the best of the colombage houses. The lovely Renaissance building in the main photo above is found on the Place Gambetta. If you are looking for a nice picnic spot wander down to the river edge where there are benches with attractive views over the river and stone bridge. Cross over the river and you get some of the best views of the village.

Market day in St Astier is Thursday. This is the best day to see Saint-Astier at its most animated and most colourful. At various times of the year the Thursday morning market incorporates a truffle market and a foie-gras market.

At St-Astier, the large network of underground lime quarries can be explored on a guided tour.

Just returned from this Fantastic holiday home in the Dordogne. An hour before leaving the UK we had pet passport issues, a nail in the tyre (no spare) and two hours into our 6.5 hour french drive, some Frenchman drove into me car !, so to say we had the hump and wanted to turn back is an understatement. However, we carried on like true spirited Brits & found the home easily thanks to Jame's guide & route. We were totally blown away by the sheer beauty of what we were met with walking around the property. All the problems of the last 24 hours had been forgotten (although we still had a nail in the tyre) We settled in and it truelly was like being at home for us (which we have never felt like in anyones holiday home) A choice of 3 bedrooms all with double beds, lovely fresh plump duvets and pillows all again of great quality.Each room having a floor standing fan (which was needed as the temp hit 80's. Bathroom with bath, and over shower that had a fully adjusable head on a flexi hose, sink & separate toilet. The living room area was huge with reclining furniture and a large plasma type tv with Sky box (with UK channels) Kitchen had enough room to cook full meals and loads of storage. The pool area and gardens are the best we have seen. So peacefull & quiet. The pool has steps to get in and is around 4.2 ft deep all over and is heated by a pump system not a cover, so available to use even if the weather is not on your side. Saint Astier is the local village and has a great market with fresh produce, there is also a lidls on the main route out 1 min from the village. If you head to Menzanec (10 min drive from the house) there is a Spar that stocks more choice of breads and spices than the Lidls or the Aldi''s..& there also is a petrol garage there.The Spar, like all shops close between 12-2 and closed all day Sunday.Take a drive to Sarlot, this is a must see place & if you are a game of thrones fan you will not be dissapointed by it's medieval look.It is not in the series but should be.Brantome is another fantastic place to visit, with it's river and Abbey, take a boat ride they leave at 11am, 2,3,4 & 5 pm daily, takes 50mins & costs around 7eu. We drove up from Le Harve & the toll's in total to the home came to around £40 each way. all machines take cards using contactless system so no tapping in numbers etc. There are routes to the home that do not go via toll roads but I would imagine they take longer. Lastly special thanks to James for all his help....

We (five adults and dog) had a great stay here at the end of August/beginning of September. The house has everything you need and if you didn't want to explore the area you could laze by the pool all day. The views are beautiful. We (me, husband & son) drove over from Yorkshire via Eurotunnel but 2 flew into Bergerac, which was about 40 minutes away and a lovely drive. Limoges airport is a bit further, about 2 hours, where we had to drop the son off. We visited the Chateau at Bourdeilles, kayaked from Brantome to Bourdeilles, enjoyed the Friday market at Brantome, walked through Roque Christophe and had a lovely drive through the area. There is a lot to do and loads of places to visit, only wish we'd had 2 weeks instead of 1. We were lucky to have such lovely weather too, the pool and bbq were used extensively as was the supermarket in St Astier!
