  • Description


    Welcome to Dordogne.
    We are a 70 years old couple restoring a castle and running a farm, doing a little of everything; woods, sheep, goats, garden, crops, chickens etc.. .
    When the weather is bad Brice goes back to his previous activity of making and restoring violins.
    We are located at a walking distance to Mareuil a small village with shops and weekly market.
    We are strictly non smoker.
    We would like a stay of at least three weeks.
    We are situated in the Natural Regional Park Perigord Limousin
    The country is well known for historical sites, excursions, and nice walks. The locals are very friendly.
    We speak English and French.
    A bientôt
    Brice and Helene
