Offering unspoiled views of the stunning Perigord countryside, the estate comprises of two main villas, both with private swimming pools and enclosed gardens, and a charming cottage. Guests can breakfast under the rising sun on their own private terrace before taking a morning dip in the large, heated pools, or strolling amongst the lovingly manicured gardens.

Le Prieure Esperance (8 guests) has been neatly restored inside and out to create an overall atmosphere of warmth and peace. The subtle mix of medieval and oriental inspired soft furnishings and exposed original oak beams and stonework give the interior a unique, yet homely feel that instantly puts visitors at ease. The grand stone fireplace only adds to this effect, as the centre piece of a large modern dining room. All spacious bedrooms are complete with flawless en-suite bathroom facilities.

Maison Esperance (10 guests) is a beautifully renovated stone house. The style of the property is a perfect blend between the modern design of our times and the refinement of a country house. It is surrounded by a charming enclosed walled garden and throughout the day, whether poolside or on one of the terraces, it is impossible not to appreciate the sun, light and serenity of each moment. There is a heated swimming pool with sunloungers and parasols, as well as a covered dining area. 

Finally, Cottage Esperance (2 guests) offers a charming place to rest at night and enjoy the most wonderful Dordogne valley views from the bedroom’s bow window.

The estate also boasts a private 17th Century chapel which is now used as a non-religious multi-functional space. It is heated/air-conditioned and has a “HK Lucas Performer” music system (compatible with media devices, I-phone etc) which allows guests to enjoy their choice of music in high definition and with excellent acoustics.

This is a holiday rental that oozes sophisticated luxury, from the silver dining cutlery to the un-chlorinated salt-water pool, yet maintains a quaint rustic charm that is in line with that of the entire Dordogne region. 

If you’d rather relax and fully enjoy a catered evening, two wonderful private chefs are at your disposal as well as a waitress service.

You can even choose whether to eat in the chateau, chapel or al-fresco! Enjoy your meal while you settle into this unique venue and start to immerse yourselves into the charming French lifestyle!
