Welcome to L'Ours et Son Petit Oiseau! Recently finished and lovingly renovated.
The house is set in 5 acres of lawns and parkland. The view stretches from the rear terrace, of woods filled with deer and wildlife and walks. Relax in a hammock, soak in a wood-fired hot tub or sit by the fire overlooking this wild valley. Cicadas and birds sing to the setting sun, and there's not a soul around for miles...

The space
The kitchen, dining and lounge are one big sociable living room with a bar. Lots of windows make it bright in the day.

The master bedroom upstairs looks out over the old Walnut trees. It has a beautiful freestanding bath. From each of the downstairs bedrooms, doors lead out to the garden.

The house is situated in a tiny peaceful hamlet called Le Poujol. All around, there are woods and miles of walks through fields of sunflowers.

We have 2.5 friendly collies (one is half Pointer), 5 cats, 6 goats and 20 chickens. You are welcome to help yourself to eggs each day. Perhaps there will be fresh goat's milk when you come (2 of the goats are expecting!).

The back door of La Grange that leads to your own private terrace, the hot tub, comfortable chairs, dining table the hammock and of course, the view... The property stretches to the bottom of the valley and you are welcome to explore there and into the wilderness beyond. There's no one around for miles...

There is no light pollution here, so the stars are clear and dramatic. The more you look, the more you see, and suddenly one will shoot across the sky.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to enjoy the whole property.

Location

Issigeac, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France

The house is 4km from the stunning medieval village of Issigeac and its famous Sunday market, popular restaurants, friendly cafe bars, tasty pizzeria, patisserie, boulangerie, creperie and supermarché. Issigeac is surrounded by many beautiful towns, including Beaumont-du-Périgord, Castillones and Villereal. In the summer months, a marché nocturne with food and wine, dancing and live music can be found almost every evening. Canoeing down the Dordogne is a fabulous experience and effortless when the water is high.
There are numerous jaw-dropping Chateux to visit, right on the doorstep. Daytime food markets can be found most days, all year round.
