The top floor is reached by a traditional wooden staircase, leading to three bedrooms, a shower room and separate WC. The stunning master bedroom has a fabulous super-king-sized white French bed and matching furniture. There is also a large bedroom with a double bed and single bed, and a smaller bedroom with sturdy 3ft single bunk beds. Travel cots (2) can be provided, as well as a small musical baby chair and mat, highchairs (2), travel bath and baby monitor, bottle steriliser and soft toys. The kitchen cupboards are stocked with utensils for indoor and outdoor living, with fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, oven, hob, microwave, juicer, toaster, cafetiere, iron & board, etc. There is a modern bathroom adjacent to the double bedroom downstairs with a Victorian white suite, slipper bath and wet area with rainshower. Outside, you can step down to the pool via feature balustrade steps or walk under a pretty rustic wooden honeysuckle and wisteria-filled pergola. The pool's Roman end steps make it easy to enter and return to your sunbed and parasol after a cooling swim! The top terrace has a large wooden table and chairs shaded by an elegant curtained pergola, and there is a large stone BBQ for al fresco dining. At the front doors the covered top terrace is perfect for relaxing at the little table and chairs, and watching the distant sunsets, experiencing the sights and sounds of the local wildlife, and star gazing. For your safety and comfort while climbing the steps to the front doors at night there is sensor lighting to the front of the property. There is also lighting to the front gates. In 2015 a feature area to the pool terrace with an ornamental fountain and plants was added. There is also effective in-ground lighting around the pool and within the garden, all remotely controlled, making the garden more enjoyable for extended warm summer evenings by the pool. More

There is a lovely double bedroom on this level, which has a bathroom adjacent (slipper bath, and shower), and these are reached through a door off of the lobby, therefore this suite can be made private if required. With 3 bedrooms on the top floor - a fabulous master room containing super-king-sized white French bed, a large room with double bed and single bed, and a smaller room with sturdy 3ft bunk beds, as well as a day bed (suitable for children) on the landing, sleeping arrangements can be quite flexible. Items for babies (in excellent condition) include 2 travel cots with light blankets (please bring your own sheets for the travel cots), musical baby mat and chair, travel bath, 2 highchairs, baby monitor, bottle steriliser and teddies! There is a shower room and separate WC on this level. Hairdryers are provided in all the double rooms. Bed linen and towels are provided (PLEASE NOTE:- pool towels are NOT provided). The full French kitchen contains every necessity for indoor and outdoor living in an extensive range of oak wall and base cupboards, fridge/freezer, hob and oven, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, iron, table and 4 chairs. There are also racks for drying washing. In the basement there is a pool table, table tennis table, and dartboard. Plenty of brochures detailing the many attractions of the area are provided! ... Guest Comment ... 'Excellent holiday rental in amazing area!! Date of Stay 04 September 2012 We have just returned from a lovely week in this beautiful property. Everything about this stay was better than we expected. The house itself is beautifully furnished and it is equipped to a very high standard with everything that you could possibly need, especially if staying with a young family. We had very warm weather during our stay, and we especially enjoyed the lovely pool area at the rear of the property. The pool has an alarm which provided us with some peace of mind with our 2 year old. The owners have a number of bird feeders in the gardens, and it was a delight to watch the finches, Bluetits and nuthatches come and go, and try to spot the woodpecker that was heard but never seen (binos supplied). There are also deer in the area that were often seen around dusk. A lovely night-time activity was to sit in the rear garden and look up at the amazing starlit sky in the light pollution free environment. It occurred to us that the house is also very well set up to entertain guests who are less fortunate with the weather with a pool table, darts, board games, 50' TV with UK channels, playstation, books etc. The property provides the perfect base from which to explore the Dordogne area, and there is an abundance of things to do and see in the locality for young and old. It is situated near the village of Les Eyzies which is within comfortable walking distance. It has some very nice restaurants! I would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday rental to anyone! '

About the neighbourhood
Les Eyzies, the centre of pre-history and a UNESCO world heritage site, is close to the medieval town of Sarlat in the Dordogne, SW France and under an hour from Bergerac and Brive airports. If you are fascinated by pre-history, a visit to the museum along the main road is a must. Tickets to the many attractions of the area can be bought at the PIP centre, and children can attend workshops where they re-create original tools used by pre-historic man. Font de Gaume is just up the road, and the site of the discovery of Cro Magnon man within awesome cliffs dominates the main thoroughfare. Many of the rock formations in the area contain caves which were occupied by pre-historic man, and some were also used in the medieval period. Les Eyzies is a fairly compact riverside town, buzzing ...
