About

The bilingual owners (English/French) are permanent residents in the Dordogne. Michael is an author and translator mainly of art books and Irina is a retired office manager. They both enjoy the peace and quiet of the area and the nearby cultural life. They own a dog and two cats. Situated on the edge of an unspoiled hamlet 5 minutes from Sorges, the 'truffle capital of the Périgord', La Treille is a 19th century farmhouse, entirely renovated, with a private covered swimming pool and all modern conveniences, offering guests comfort, privacy, tranquillity and the cultural and gastronomic riches of one of France's most delightful provinces. Tastefully furnished with country furniture, the house sleeps 2 to 6. Ideal for a couple with 2 children, or 2 couples. Located in north-east Dordogne, the property looks out onto 12 acres of walnut groves and is surrounded by 800 acres of woods with a choice of delightful signposted walks and cycling trails and outdoor exercise benches. The kitchen is open-plan and fully-equipped with dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven, fridge & freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle and ample cupboard space. A door opens out onto the terrace for outdoor dining. Large living-room with exposed beams and old stone fireplace. Two comfortable modern leather couches. Dining area with antique walnut table and chairs, seats 6. French-windows open out onto a partially-covered terrace with view onto the pool, meadows and walnut groves. The front entrance is via a charming, walled-in courtyard. TV connected to the internet, DVD player, radio and cd player. One bathroom with bathtub, shower, WC, bidet and washbasin. Plus 2 separate WCs (one upstairs and one downstairs). Nearby sights include the Chateaux of Hautefort, Puyguilhem and Bourdeilles; the medieval towns of Périgueux, Brantôme and Excideuil are close by. The area offers caves, canoeing, tennis, golf, horseback riding. There are many excellent restaurants and open-air markets within a short drive.
