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.
