LE GREZIER The house and gardens

ACCOMMODATION

A beautiful property renovated to the highest standard, close to Sarlat.

Le Grézier is located in Simeyrols in the 'golden triangle' of the Perigord Noir and is an idyllic rural retreat, in close proximity to all the main activities and tourist attractions. The ancient medieval town of Sarlat has restaurants, shops, bars and a bustling market on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. The village of Simeyrols is easily accessible from the main A20 motorway or by low-cost flight (Bergerac, Toulouse, Limoges) with car hire. Nearby Carlux (4km) is a picturesque village with a bakery, butchers, grocery store, post office and bar.

Details for Le Grezier - the farmhouse 4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 2 Bathrooms

The house is tastefully furnished throughout, sleeps 8 in four large bedrooms and is set on almost an acre of level gardens, with ample space to relax by the pool, play boules or watch the sun go down with a glass of wine on the main terrace. The smaller breakfast terrace has superb views over the valley and is the ideal place to catch the early morning sun.  The house is rented from May onwards,  with private use of the 10 x 5 metre pool.

Ground Floor

The front door leads into a  large lounge and dining room featuring original stone walls which keep the rooms cool on hot summer days. The lounge area has two very comfortable cream sofas, coffee table and a large fireplace with log burner, which, although not required in summer, is an attractive feature. The dining area, which seats 8, has french windows leading onto the main terrace.  A couple of steps lead from the dining area to the kitchen, equipped with a double sink and mixer taps, gas cooker with four burners and modern oven, dishwasher, large refrigerator with freezer section, microwave oven.  The kitchen also has a beautiful old bread oven as a feature.  The back door from the kitchen leads onto the rear terrace which has a beautiful view across the valley. Sunrise can be viewed from here and it offers shade in the afternoon.

One double bedroom is situated on the ground floor, leading off from the lounge.  It has a double bed and an en-suite bathroom, with washbasin, shower and WC.

The main terrace has an outdoor table and chairs and bar-b-que. It overlooks the private pool, but also has views across the  fields. Spectacular sun sets can also be seen from here.

Upstairs

An oak staircase leads from the dining area to the first floor landing, which runs the length of the house.

Though tastefully renovated, the upstairs bedrooms still retain the original farmhouse beams. The large Master bedroom has a kingsize bed, while the 2 other bedrooms are both twin bedded. All of the rooms are bright and airy and have oak floors. These rooms share a large modern tiled bathroom, with bath, shower, washbasin and separate WC. A cot, (also stairgate and high chair) are available  if required. (See more photos in the Gallery on the next page)

The Gardens...

The gardens, which surround the house, are beautiful and well maintained both front and back. There are numerous shrubs, trees and flower beds and the gardens are very colourful throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn.  A recently-added feature is the'White garden' between the house and barn.  This pretty area, has a small table and two chairs and, as its name suggests, is filled with white, scented flowers throughout the season.
There is plenty of wildlife to be seen, such as buzzards, kites, swallows, housemartins and other birds.  We occasionally have hoopoe birds visiting as well.

Guest Comments
We would recommend Le Grezier unreservedly. The property was the best we have stayed in and we have been to France many times: it was exactly as described. The house was very well equipped, tasteful ... — I. Powick & family, 13 Jul 2012
