Atmospheric old farmhouse in acres of trees & gardens on banks of Gardonette stream, 3 miles from Dordogne river. Near chateaux, in midst of vineyards. Great for biking. Generous comfortable double bedrooms - two with ensuite bathrooms.


The house is about 300 years old with great oak beams in the living room and upstairs bedrooms. Built of stone with tiled floors, the house is refreshingly cool in the hot summers. The kitchen, although renovated in a traditional style, retains its original massive open fireplace. We have put in a traditional woodburning cooker into the space. The house has high ceilings in the living areas and retains many of its original features. The owners love gardening and are establishing eco-friendly flower and vegetable gardens on the spacious site. The grounds lead down to a small stream, woods and to fields beyond.

Accesso ospiti

Guests have access to their own private bathrooms, bedrooms and the common kitchen area and lounge. And of course are welcome to use the gardens or sit by the pond.

Interazione con gli ospiti

We are both very welcoming and happy to spend time with people staying in the house but also aware that people need their own space and time also. As we live on site we are normally present most of the time during our guests' stay.

Altre cose da evidenziare

We are also well situated to visit mediaeval villages and wineries as well as the buddhist retreat of Plum Village, at Thénac. It is not far from the 1000 year-old church of Monbos. There are several pleasant walks to be taken beside streams and under trees, starting from the end of our garden. A longer walk takes in the nearby old fortified chateaux of Gageac and Saussignac.

We have a (very well-behaved and gentle) dog who gets on very well with other dogs, so we are happy for people to bring their pet.

We don't really like smoking in the house.

La chambre est propre calme est agréable avec une salle de bain privé. La maison est au calme un peu difficile a trouver a cause d'un mauvais point GPS. Il suffit de bien repérer le numéro de l'entrée. Maurice est un hôte agréable ouvert a l'échange. Merci

C'était déjà la seconde fois que j'occupais ce charmant lieu, doté d'une âme particulière. Maurice et Tony sont des hôtes aimables, disponibles, accessibles, flexibles et en même temps discrets. Et les deux chiens sont à l'image de leurs maîtres. Capables aussi de s'adapter à des situations particulières, comme celle qui me voyait quitter chaque matin dès 5h. Pour ceux qui le souhaitent en complément, prendre un dîner avec eux est une expérience savoureuse, tout aussi recommandable. Jamais deux sans trois!

We had a lovely week staying in the Gite which was spacious and comfortable for two. The house is well located to explore the region and Maurice provided lots of helpful information for things to see locally as well as day trips. We borrowed bikes for an evening cycle through the local vineyards and chateau - a definite highlight.

I had a truly wonderful week in this charming and delightful place. The room is spacious and looks out onto the back garden, the en suite more than adequate, and the bed very comfortable. It was quiet and peaceful, perfect to rest up of an evening after wandering around the gorgeous Dordogne landscape. Maurice and Tony gave me a hearty welcome, and offered advice and help on what to do locally. Through them I met some amazing people living in the area, and was also very happy to visit the renowned Buddhist monastery of Plum Village, only about 10 kilometres away. It was also possible to book in for breakfast and/or evening meal, at very affordable rates, and - yes! - Tony's Thai cooking is delicious! All in all, a great holiday. The place is imbued with the passion and love with which Maurice and Tony have restored this lovely house, shared now as well with their very friendly dogs, Luca and Archie. I wish them every blessing for the road ahead, and continued success with their AirBnB adventures.

Maurice was very welcoming and his location was exactly as described in the middle of vast vineyards west of Bergerac. His back garden with its towering trees and surrounding thick bush was the perfect location for a do it yourself supper of baguette, fine cheese and a bottle of the neighbourhood's best product.

Perhaps I can best describe myself by explaining how a globetrotting New Zealander ended up with houses smack in the middle of Andalusia and France.

Like most kiwis (our way of saying NZer) I got bitten by a wanderbug very early on. By the age of seventeen, I had already been hitchhiking in Europe. Once I got my teacher training out of the road I was quickly off again.

First stop was 6 months in Asia, followed by a stint teaching in Japan, but the goal was always Europe and the UK.

A fascination with the Granada playwright and poet Federico Garcia Lorca lead me not only to southern Spain but more specifically to Granada. I suppose buying the house there was some sort of attempt at making a connection.

I didn't leave it there though.
My next teaching post saw me establishing a Theatre Arts course in Hong Kong and it was a Lorca play that kicked off that whole programme. That first show, an extract from 'Blood Wedding', was staged under moonlight in the bay below the school, lit by burning torches; all rather eerie and haunting. Lorca resurfaced a year or two later as well. We staged a bunraku puppet version of 'The House of Bernarda Alba' (using puppets about half the size of their operators).

Well, that gives you some idea of the background of the owner of the house and maybe a bit of a glimpse into how rich Granada is in literature, as well as history as well. Its easy to get captivated by Granada's magic and mystery as I did.

Our place in France was bought for similar romantic, rather than purely rational, reasons. I had been hunting for an old stone property to do up for several years. What we finally found was everything we'd hoped for and more. The few acres we have on the edge of a stream is covered in woods and fruit trees. The stone house is our project. We are well on the way now to breathing new life into this wonderful old farmhouse and look forward to sharing it with family and friends, old and new. It, too, has its own magic.
