Masclat, Midi-Pyrénées, France
La Vieille Grange is a spacious and comfortable converted stone barn on the edge of a pretty hamlet overlooking woods and fields in the Dordogne Valley, about 15 kms from Sarlat, Perigord, SW France. It sleeps up to seven people, with two large airy double bedrooms (one also has another single bed on a mezzanine level), and a third, smaller bedroom has two single beds. There are two bathrooms upstairs (one is ensuite), and a separate WC with hand basin on the ground floor. The well-equipped kitchen area has a gas/electric cooker, dishwasher and a walk-in pantry, crockery and cutlery for up to 10 people. It has a country dining table seating eight and in the lounge area are three comfortable sofas, a Samsung flat screen TV that receives satellite signals for English and French channels, and a CD/MP3 player and a small reference library of guide books on the area - and some cookbooks. All main rooms have independently adjustable electric wall heaters for the cooler months and fans for summer. The house sits in its own courtyard/garden and there is covered parking for two cars in adjoining barns. The nearest local village has a doctor's practice and a very good pharmacy; the local hospital is 14 kms away. Looking east from the large windows on each floor are tranquil views of valley meadows; to the north are woodlands (home to birds and red squirrels). There are French doors on both sides of the ground floor - one set to the north and three to the south opening onto a terraced area and grassy courtyard which enjoys long hours of sunshine. In season there are abundant herbs and cherry tomatoes growing by the door closest to the kitchen. The house is 30 minutes from Brive Valley of the Dordogne airport, which has direct flights from Stansted Airport, UK. The house is approximately a two-hour drive from Toulouse and one hour thirty minutes from Bergerac. The house lies in the heart of a region famed for its scenic, gastronomic and historical attractions. It is a pleasant 20-minute drive from the medieval charm and bustling food market of Sarlat and within easy driving distance of the pilgrim site of Rocamadour, many chateaux, and caves with prehistoric paintings.
