A short list of the main features of the holiday home
The gîte Maison le Lièvre is the original home and the oldest part of a 200 years old renovated farmhouse.
The cottage consists of a living/sleeping room with a comfortable double bed (140 x 200 cm.) and a large, stone fireplace with a woodburning stove, where you can sit on a cool evening.
A spacious, fully equipped, dining kitchen with a refrigerator, 4 burner hob, an electric oven and a coffee machine.
You can order a French breakfast with us, for your first morning in France.
There is a bathroom with shower cabin, toilet and sink.
The gîte is on one level.
You can park your car in your private driveway.
Directly in the front of the cottage is a private terrace on the west with a terrace sitting area where you can dine in the evening.
You can use the lounge chairs when you relax to enjoy the sun.
Our gîte is located in the Perigord Vert, the green part of the Dordogne, and the regional national park Périgord-Limousin. This region is a beautiful hiking area and in many villages starts different marked hiking routes; in the cottage you will find plenty of routes and maps.
There are also excellent opportunities for activities such as canoeing, horse riding, golf, rock climbing, biking and swimming. A 20-minute drive away is the bathing lake of Saint-Estèphe, with a coastguard sandy beach, a good restaurant and a snackbar where you can order french fries. Here you can enjoy an old-fashioned experience of bathing.
The picturesque village of Saint Front sur Nizonne, with its beautiful church, is 4 km away.
On a 10 -minutes drive you will find Nontron, here you can buy your daily shopping in the supermarkets, and you can visit the weekly market on saturday. Nontron is known for its traditional knife-factory, dating back to the 15th century, the factory is worth a visit. Also in the centre is the beautiful castle that is the location for arts and craft exhibitions throughout the year organised by the Pôle Métiers d'art Expérimental de Périgord Vert-Limousin.
In Champeaux-et-la-Chapelle Pommier (5 km) is the beautiful l'eglise Saint Martin currently being restored; in the church are regular classical concerts raise funds for the restoration. Opposite the church you can start a marked hiking trail. The Chateau des Bernardières (6,5 km) you can visit during the high season, here you can a comprehensive free, guided tour provided by the experienced management couple.
In Villars (22 km) you can have a lovely dinner at 'le pas de Chat' and visit the prehistoric caves of Villars, or take a look at the Chateau de Puyghuilhem (16th century) that, in its renaissance appearance, resembles the castles in the Loire.
Brantôme (24 km) is called the Venice of the Périgord. The Abbey, the cave dwellings and the location of the centre on a island in the river Dronne are well worth a visit. In high season here are many restaurants and terraces where you can enjoy the cuisine of the Périgord. This region is known for its foie gras, canard, chestnuts, truffles and the delicious cheeses and wines.
These are the facilities and services included in the price of your holiday.
I like peace and quiet and enjoy the beautiful culture in this region. During your stay I can inform you about the local restaurants, festivities and places of interest. I love to walk in the quiet woods and you will find some maps in the gîte. If you would like to find the most beautiful walks you can ask us.
I love nature and delicious, healthy food. In addition, I like to work in the vegetable garden and when you want to eat fresh vegetables and fruits, you can ask me. You can also ask me for fresh eggs. We have chickens who will surprise us almost every day!
This is what our guests think
At arrival we were pleasantly suprised by your beautiful and fully equiped gîte. The tastfully decorated bed/livingroom, nice kitchen en clean bathroom. Your very large garden is tastfully landscaped and offers many possiblities on sunny days, to sit in the shade and to read. The chickens and the vegetable garden, where we could find and take some vegetables, makes a nice picture. What we quickly noticed was that we always heard barking in the background. We have heard the barking of the nearby dogkennel the whole week in more or lesser extent. This is disturbing in the whole. In the surroundings we found nice towns and the nature is overwhelming. Just north of Nontron you can have a nice swim in a large lake and Périgueux is a beautiful and interesting old town with many posibilities. A trip to Brantôme is recommended. In short we have had a good time at your place.GERRIE & MICHELLE -Juli 2018
What a beautiful place to stay. We thank you for your host.RUUD & JUDITH -May 2016
We have been enjoying this amazing, very quiet place for two weeks! The gîte is cozy with a lovely woodburning stove for the fresher evenings and a fine bed with a firm mattress. A well-equiped, cozy kitchen and a nice shower. We usually ate outside on our own terrace with a nice view at the well-groomed garden. This garden has lots of nice sun/shadow spots. We really enjoyed the lovely cats and kittens and the conversations with the friendly, helpfull owners. Very tasty vegetables from the organic vegetable garden and eggs from the chickens. What was amazing that we were able to borrow a guitar and a violin to make music different nights, one of them in the company of Gerda and Kees. All in all, a top location for our holiday in the green Dordogne. Thank you very much for this nice place.LIJNIS & MELANIA -August 2017
