Parisot Bas, Villereal
Our fully-restored luxurious eighteenth-century farmhouse on the Dordogne/Lot-et-Garonne border is now available for weekly rentals from May 2020. The house is 400m2, full of light and space, with 5-6 bedrooms, accommodating up to 10 adults and 4 children, or 12 adults. There is a 14 metre pool set in a large garden full of fruit trees, and if you pick the right moment you can enjoy grazing on cherries, plums or figs.
Villereal, Your Next Holiday Destination
The house is situated just outside Villereal, a stunning medieval bastide village, recently named one of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France"- it is officially one of the most beautiful villlages of France. There is a twice-weekly market in the summer, weekly night-markets, an annual theatre festival, and other entertainments. We are not far from Beaumont, Monflanquin, and Issigeac; and 25 minutes drive from Bergerac Airport. The villages are so striking here that Ridley Scott is filming 'The Last Duel' as I write, in Monpazier, 15 minutes away. The square has been converted into a medieval set, although the set designers didn't need to do a great deal to make it authentic!
Meanwhile, the Dordogne River is a 30 minute drive: we recommend you hire a canoe and glide along the most exquisite river, looking at the castles built along the bank or watching swans, kingfishers and dragonflies explore their magical world. If you like walking, there are hundreds of paths in the area taking you through woods, past castles (like Chateau Biron, in the photograph), along rivers, or up hills. Perigord is famous for its cuisine, and Villereal boasts 8 different restaurants with menus to please everyone. And then come back to Parisot Bas to relax in our beautiful holiday home with its own 14 metre swimming pool! Weekly rentals available from the Spring onwards.
