A classic French home

In the heart of the Périgord Blanc region, this wonderful home sits overlooking the authentic French village of Vergt. Built during the 18th century for a local dignitary, its spacious proportions and many original features evoke the grand manner of the past, while its designer décor gives the elegant interior a light and contemporary feel.

Generous living spaces include a grand entrance hall and large reception rooms, along with a billiard room, a large study/office, a media room, and a snug with a bar. The bright white kitchen with its designer table and chairs will make the simplest meal memorable, and dining in the delightful belvedere with its views over the village is an experience not to be missed. Upstairs, elegantly muted tones prevail in the luxuriously comfortable bedrooms and immaculate, brand-new bathrooms.

Outside, gardens, meadows and orchards grace the grounds, and just a few minutes’ walk takes you into a busy and popular village where you’ll find everything you might need. The village, which dates back some thousand years, is the strawberry capital of France and celebrates with a strawberry festival every May.

Surrounded by gorgeously lush countryside and with dozens of fascinating places to visit, as well as easy access to the autoroute, this superb home is a great place to sample life as the French live it -- in great comfort and style.
