The Space

Elegantly renovated bijou apartment with ultra modern fittings in a Medieval/Rennaisance Setting

Elegant, bright, conveniently located in the heart of the Old City in Perigueux. Elevator serviced, lovely 1st Floor 25 sq. m apatment with a seperate 7 sq.m mezzanine sleeping area. High standard and newly refurbished just off the main Rue Taillefer in which the CATHÉDRALE SAINT-FRONT commands the skyscape crowned by five immense Byzantine cupolas next to a soaring belfry.
Apartment, constituting part of a construction which dates back many centuries to before the middle ages. in its multiple story foundations, one can see something of the evolution and development of this important ancient city.
The apartment itself offers top of the range ultra modern facilities. It is a self contained studio including architect designed kitchen and designer bathroom fittings. It also benefits from a 7 sq. mts mezzanine sleeping area with a full size orthopedic mattress which allows comfortable main room floor space.
( Please note that the access to the bed is by a steep oak ladder/steps so it is not recommended for people with physical problems or mobility issues. The entrance to the shower is also narrow and it is not advisable for people with mobility issues related to size.)
You can relax watching a movie on your flat screen TV or read a book on a Le Corbusier sofa after a magic day walking through Perigueux or eat dinner on an Eero Saarinen dining set surrounded by the exposed old stone fire place and walls.

The apartment is ideal for a couple on a perigordine escape!

The apartment has just been tastefully renovated this year - and is a perfect base from which to explore the historic city of Périgueux and the surrounding "Perigord" region, an area deservedly known for its beauty, its sites of interest and, most particularly, for its gastronomic reputation. Périgueux is classed as a 'City of Art and of History', with its Gallo-Roman remains, its beautifully preserved old town and its magnificent Saint-Front-Cathedral. Inviting colourful markets where you will enjoy the distinctive aromas and perfumes of local products - truffles, 'cepes' mushrooms, walnuts, wine.. and where the summer festival of events from Mime to Jazz takes place. Excellent advice and list of recommended addresses available.

-A reimbursable deposit of 350 Euros will be required by the owners against risk of damage or loss.

We appreciate that many visitors may wish to smoke but we would ask that you do not do so in the apartment, both for insurance purposes and in consideration of non-smokers who will be occupying the apartment after your departure.

  • A most enjoyable stay at this lovely little apartment in Perigueux. We were met by Maria and her charming daughter on arrival who explained everything we needed to know in detail. It was a very easy stay even though we booked just the night before. The apartment is very well appointed for such a small space and so was very comfortable.
    We did find the loft bed a little difficult and I would hesitate to book this if there is any issue with mobility or co-ordination. The ladder is a little difficult at 3am! But if you are mobile it is very comfortable once you are up there!
    Great location in town as well, with lots of interesting places to walk to and nice restaurants/cafes and local markets. Everything is closed on Sunday but I think that is true for everything in France anyway! We still managed to find places to eat. It is a beautiful area to drive around of course as well.
    We were happy enough to clean the apartment but you can pay extra for a cleaner if you wish.
    Overall we really enjoyed our short stay here.
