Dordogne-Lot: old farm house for sale renovated into two guest houses with pool

In a small typical village, 7 minutes from Souillac (schools, high schools, shops, medical centre, railway station from Paris, motorway), 5 minutes from the river Dordogne, near the heart of the Périgord Noir and its tourist sites (medieval castles, prehistoric sites, swimming, hiking...), this former farmhouse of two buildings (200 and 175 m2) has been restored into a main house and guest house.

Currently Chambres et Tables d'Hôtes (capacity 14 guests), the property benefits from the "Gites de France" label and welcomes regular guests from April to the end of September.

You can perfectly move in in the main house and carry on the business, or turn one of the houses into a Gite, or keep the property private to welcome family and friends.

In absolute calm, the houses are surrounded by a pretty garden, and are not overlooked, with a view on the hill. A swimming pool, a SPA, a cocktail shed, a large garden shed to enjoy dinners outside, a semi-professional summer kitchen make the property an ideal place for relax and big family meetings.

The property is located in a small Périgord village in a quiet area, 7 minutes from Souillac (restaurants, medical centres, shops, supermarkets, schools, railway station, motorway), 5 minutes from the Dordogne, 30 minutes from Sarlat and its tourist sites: medieval castles, prehistoric sites, le Gouffre de Padirac, Rocamadour village, swimming in the Dordogne, hiking... The property is perfectly located to enjoy the tourist activity of the Périgord Noir in a peaceful environment.

This old farmhouse is made of two old stone buildings, with beams, fireplace, very well renovated. All windows and patio doors are double-glazed.

The first building, two storeys high, is organized into a main house on the ground floor and two suites to welcome guests on the ground floor.

You enter the house from the courtyard side through a vestibule that gives access to the kitchen / dining room: a nice living space of about 25 m2. Then, the corridor leads to a cosy lounge (24 m2) with a wood burner, a bathroom (bath, WC), a beautiful master suite with a dressing room and shower, and a second bedroom: all rooms open onto a large terrace facing South-West. On the ground floor, you have two independent "suites" (living room, bedroom and shower room each) that overlook the courtyard and garden. You can very easily combine the two floors for a large family (see details below).

The second house is made of a large professional kitchen opening onto the garden, and a large 55 m2 living room (big wood burner) ; one can easily imagine a beautiful table for 20 people! Upstairs, you have three large bedrooms, each with its own shower room. The attic of this house is almost ready to accommodate another 55 m2 apartment (electricity, drains and water supplies installed, velux: it just needs to be insulated).

Swimming pool, pretty enclosed garden overlooking the hill, small barns, garden sheds, SPA, the property is full of surprises.

21h00, a full summer evening... Children play into the garden while adults sit around a large table, laughing and having informal discussions with the chef who, from his kitchen open to the garden, explains the preparation of regional specialities. This summer kitchen is the heart of successfull summer evenings, as well as of the cooler season: equipped like a professional kitchen (diving area, large refrigerator cabinets, dishwasher and freezer), it is open to the outside world and also opens directly onto the huge lounge with fireplace. Beautiful memories to come.
