Fleurs de Dordogne offers quality accommodation in a very peaceful end of road location just 2km from the beautiful Dordogne village of Saint-Pompont, with comfortable and spacious facilities for 2 people.
It is easy to spend your time relaxing at Fleurs de Dordogne, or there is the spectacular Dordogne valley within a few miles to explore, with the superb views from Domme just 20 minutes away by car, or the elegant streets of Sarlat around 30 minutes away by car among many other delightful towns and villages for which the area is noted. To the south and east are the chestnut covered hills of the Bouriane and Périgord Noir, spectacular in Autumn, which soon lead down to the impressive River Lot around Cahors.
The house has recently revealed a very interesting history. It was built in the early 1700s on the site of a former Protestant church for Sieur (Lord) Maniers, the Procurer (tax collector) for the long lived King Louis XIV. Recent discoveries include an underground escape tunnel from the house up to a nearby farm, such was the unpopularity of tax collectors.
The approach to the property is along a quiet winding country road which comes to an end at the property. There is ample secure off road parking.
Entering Fleurs de Dordogne is a delight for anyone who enjoys nature's beauty - in summer there is a delightful array of flowers, with a large wisteria over the entrance, and later in the year, gorgeous shades of autumn colour as the plants regenerate for the next season.
The first room is the stylish Sitting/Dining living room with the open plan Kitchen beside it. The main feature is a stunning traditional stone fireplace with good comfortable armchairs beside. Throughout Fleurs de Dordogne there is a feeling of space with large spacious rooms throughout.
The Kitchen has a good range of appliances, including a cooker with hob and over, microwave, washing machine and a good range of utensils. There is plenty of work and storage space with quality fitted units.
The Bedroom has a King Size double bed with en suite bathroom facilities
In the bathroom are a bath with shower over, wc, bidet and heated towel rail.
Sunloungers and patio furniture for the floral terrace is provided, and a charcoal barbeque is available. The westerly aspect takes maximum benefit from late afternoon and evening sun with a view over the courtyard which has a wide array of plants growing around it.
Fleurs de Dordogne has two sister gites close by, but carefully laid out so that a good degree of privacy is assured. This makes it ideal perhaps for two or three couples travelling together who may not want to share the same accommodation.

The Dordogne valley has many towns, villages and chateaux of note to explore among beautiful countryside which changes steadily throughout the year. The wild flowers in spring and the autumn colours of the predominant chestnut and oak trees make wonderful spectacles away from the main summer season.

To the east along the Dordogne is the character town of Bergerac, surrounded by thousands of acres of vines offering the chance for sampling Bergerac wines, or for a deeper flavoured red wine the wineries of the Cahors AOP are only a few miles to the south along the River Lot around Prayssac.
Traditional markets are held somewhere nearby every day of the week, with the Friday market at Prayssac renowned for quality food. All towns and most villages have good restaurants where the most is made of the local produce: Guests are never short of good food in this part of France.

From Other Guests
"NOT A HOLIDAY HOUSE BUT A HOLIDAY HOME! We were offered friendship, top quality equipment, quality bedding, towels etc Even an apron. So many little, thoughtful touches to make the stay special.
Best standard of comfort 'thoughtful extras' we have seen in 40 years of renting gites in France."
"The location is idyllic for country lovers and the host has just the right approach: friendly and available but not intrusive. We enjoyed our occasional chats with David and took up his idea for walks, but had all the privacy we needed. It is a very tranquil area with paths and tracks leading from the house and lovely surrounding villages. Very good wifi, UK TV, kitchen, bathroom."
"The gite was absolutely perfect - very cosy, immaculately clean and with plenty of traditional local charm. We loved sitting outside on the terrace listening to the fountain in the fishpond gently bubbling away and watching the birds flit through the vine to visit the feeder."
