Gîte / Cottage

Pigeonnier du Château de Mayac

Peace, space and privacy are offered with this well-restored former dovecote that is part of the 15th century estate Château de Mayac .

In earlier times this was an important area with vineyards and tobacco cultivation. The large tobacco dryer from that time stands as a visible reminder next to your holiday home.

The atmosphere around the house is peaceful and it is a wonderful place for children.
They can romp in the garden and the large swimming pool of 14 by 5 meters is a few dozen meters away from the house and is child-safe.
This swimming pool is shared with the tenants of a second gite on this estate.

The house has an attractive living room with a fireplace, a well-restored kitchen with all amenities, two large bedrooms, a bathroom and a spacious enclosed garden with a few nice shade areas.

From the house you can walk to the river, it is centrally located with regard to all kinds of activities, shops and sights.

In the immediate vicinity are many well-marked walking routes and you can also discover nature in the forest behind with the avenue of centuries-old plane trees along the river Isle.

Restaurants can be found 2 km from the house, shops with groceries are within 2 km. The house is located on the border of the Périgord Vert and the Périgord Blanc in the southern French Dordogne.

For a day out you can visit the surrounding places Excideuil (10 km), Tourtoirac (18 km) or Perigueux (23 km).

The Dutch caretaker has lived at a distance of 1200 meters for more than 20 years and is happy to assist you.

For family vacations, a second residence for 10 people (5 bedrooms) may be available on the same domain. (depending on availability)
