Situated in the heart of the “Périgord Noir”, famous for its many grand châteaux, historic buildings and gorgeous landscapes, La Metairie sits secluded in its own grounds at the end of a quiet lane from the village and with stunning views on all sides. It’s the ideal setting for an extended family vacation or a boutique wedding. La Metairie has kept its farmhouse feel with stone walls and timbered ceilings, to which all the modern conveniences have been skillfully added.
There are 5 air-conditioned bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and TV. The main living area opens to comfortable chairs and sofas around the wood burning stove, has a long dining table and ends in a very well fitted kitchen with everything on hand for creating gourmet meals – an essential ingredient in every Périgourdine vacation! Outside, a multi-level, informal garden area has been created with a superb pool and broad stone terrace, perfect for soaking up the sunshine.
