In the heart of the Périgord Blanc region, your Dordogne vacation home sits overlooking the authentic French village of Vergt. 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 high ceilings, thick stone walls, limestone and polished wood floors.
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. Outside, gardens, meadows and orchards grace the grounds, and just a few minutes walk takes you into a busy and popular village where you will find everything you might need, including an authentic farmer’s market every Friday.
