Striking Perigord property in a tranquil setting, complete with pool and hotel-standard services – sleeps up to 12

The Space

You benefit from hotel-standard services: household linen, bed linen and towels provided, welcome basket, cosmetic products, concierge service, cleaning service included.

The property is located in the open countryside, close to the charming village of Maurens. You enjoy exceptional peace and quiet, all the while being close to the biggest attractions in the region of the Dordogne. Access to the property is by means of a little path, which leads you to the farmhouse which is set atop a park spanning 2 hectares.

The property consists of two houses: a main building, the farmhouse, which can sleep up to 8 people, and a very cosy cottage, which can sleep up to 4. With a surface area of 170 m², the house is spacious and decorated in the traditional Perigord style. On the ground floor you will find a large kitchen and a back kitchen, both of which are fully equipped, complete with a table and offering access to the terrace by means of a large sliding glass window. You’ll also find a spacious, elegant living room with cathedral ceiling overlooking the terrace, a lounge area with a television and a dining area with a large table which can comfortably seat up to 8 people. Two staircases lead off to two different floors. The first staircase takes you to a floor where you’ll find a mezzanine and the master bedroom, containing its own bathroom, shower and toilet. The second staircase takes you to a landing area. Here you’ll find three further bedrooms which are interlinked and share a huge bathroom with washbasin, shower and toilets. The first bedroom is equipped with a double bed, and the two other bedrooms offer single beds.

The estate itself is extensive. With a surface area of 2 hectares, it boasts a large pool, a large expanse of grass, a lovely pond suitable for swimming in, a large 100 m² terrace complete with a barbecue and all necessary garden furniture, as well as an outdoor oven. Last but not least, you can park up to 4 vehicles in the closed off car park.

The Neighborhood

The property is nestled in the very heart of the "Purple Périgord", famous for its exceptional vineyard and centred around the town of Bergerac. Foodies, you won’t be disappointed! The region is famous for its traditional cuisine, which is admittedly calorific but quite delicious. Indulge in its decadence: duck breasts, goose stuffed with foie gras, sautéed potatoes "Sarlat style", walnut cake, fine wines and truffles. Nature lovers certainly won’t be out of step: the region contains numerous noteworthy tourist sites and you can go rambling, admire the view, and escape the world for a while.
Valleys from different bodies of water promise breath-taking panoramas, natural architecture and unique walks. History and architecture geeks will also be in for a treat: numerous Périgord villages and towns are famous for being amongst the most beautiful in France, such as those at la Roque-Gageac, the thetroglodytic village, Sarlat or even Bergerac. Likewise, the nearby village of Monbazillac is also worth a look since you can visit the chateau there. The heritage is rich, stretching back thousands of years, like the caves at Font-de-Gaume and at Lascaux, for instance.
The property is located close to the village of Maurens, where you can find all the little shops you might need. You’ll also find some bars and restaurants serving local cuisine there. If that’s not enough for you, the historic city of Bergerac is around 10 kilometres away. You’ll also find a hospital and a supermarket there.

  • Me and my 2 sisters rent this apartment. It's not for 3 person very small apartment and not so close to the beach. Before booking I asked Alice can we stay 3 person she said yes, there was 1 mattress which is also to thin and in apartment no place to put it. We slept in one sofa bed all together. And we didn't have hot water always, hot water for 2-3 minutes it's even not enough for 1 person and also there was no Internet but when I said them they bring wifi modem which is limited and sometimes it's not working. Anyway we didn't like this apartment. I asked to return some amount of money we paid Alice said i will speak with manager and that's all she didn't answer. NOT RESPONSIBLE.

    Response from Alice:

    Dear Bobur,

    We are sorry about your experience in this property. I have to admit that we had our mistakes, It was the first rental and we took your booking last minute.

    I would like to apologize for the internet but I would also like to precise that I provided you with a 3G key and made sure that you had available data even if It does not excuse my mistake.

    Regarding the hot water, we reduced the number of person that could stay in this apartment as in fact the boiler is meant for two, unfortunately I was not aware of this. Moreover It lasted more than two minutes.

    Finally, I would like to had a correction, we sent you a discount on Airbnb, however at the time you wrote your review it wasn't sent to you.

    Please accept my apologies for your experience and know that we improved this property in order to provide a good service quality.

    Best regards,

    Alice

  • We found our host to be responsive to our communications. Being flexible with our check in was very helpful. I will say that the pictures make the place look larger than it is, but we were able to do all that we needed to in the space. The upstairs was a little stuffy when trying to sleep, and as the World Cup was going on, opening the windows let in a lot of noise from near by celebrators.

  • Very professional, the apartement was very nice, with a great bathroom and living areas. Fantastic location, great decor, in the heart of the 6th. I would definately come back.

  • What a perfect flat! Very central to the center of Versailles, to the Château, and to the train station. The host was perfect and very helpful and accommodating. I would stay here again and also certainly recommend it for others.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 8 Rue de Madame! This beautiful apartment was perfect for our family of four. It is nicely situated and was clean and well stocked. The location is great and there was plenty of space for us to enjoy our downtime in Paris. The Squarebreak staff was easy to work with, responsive and helpful. We will definitely recommend this apartment to friends and would stay here again ourselves.
