Ringuette is completely independent, surrounded by forests and farmlands. The Manoir is typical French and has a nice view over the hills. There is a large walled garden with beautiful trees, including a 200-year-old Taxodium and a bamboo forest. Attractive courtyard (cour) formed by the house and outbuildings. The total estate covers 85 hectares, so more than enough space to go hiking. Prices outsde July and August based on a max of 8 persons.
Large living room with fireplace, TV room (TV and DVD), study and music room, large kitchen with cozy wood stove, toilet, utility room with washer and dryer. There is Wi-Fi connection.
Seven bedrooms (of which 2 with a washbasin), toilet, bathroom with bath, sink and toilet and washing machine and dryer, second bathroom with shower and wash basin. The bathrooms are maybe a bit old fashioned but the grandness of the house will compensate for this.
The layout of the rooms is as follows
2 bedrooms with twin beds (180 x 200)
3 bedrooms with 2 beds (140 x 200)
2 bedrooms with a single bed
The park like garden next to the house with a vast lawn, fruit trees, a bamboo forest and a 200 years old Taxodium is authentically walled. There is a lovely circular pool (diameter 9.70 m), fed by natural water from one of the sources, located in the huge garden. There are seats and loungers for you by the pool, bamboo grove and pond. The romantic courtyard is formed by the mansion and its outbuildings, including former stables, barn and carport. In one of the outside buildings there are another 3 showers, washing machine and dryer.
10 minutes walk of a small village close to Montignac. This village has a small supermarket, a bakery and a cafe. The beautiful cities of Périgueux and Brive are both exactly half an hour away by car. Montignac, Sarlat, the caves of Lascaux, the cave of Rouffignac and Les Eyzies are also nearby. An ideal vacation spot for a family, even for two families, a group of relatives or friends. But there is a risk: if you have once hired, you will return again next year ... Wonderful walks are through the woods (with natural springs and deer) and fields. In the mundane Montignac, along the Vézère rivers live many English and artistic Parisians. Sarlat is called the 'pearl of the Dordogne' and is famous for its architecture. The closest beach is near Bordeaux, at an hour’s drive.
Canoeing, walking, mountainbiking, swimming (public swimming pools in Terrasson and Azerat), tennis and horsebackriding. There are 5 golfcourses within a range of 50km and swimming - waterbikes at a 10 minute drive.
