La Foun de Tourliac, France
Welcome to La Foun, a French holiday-house
Enjoy exclusive use of this spacious and secluded 18th-century farmhouse set in its own meadows on the edge of a small village between the medieval bastide villages of Monpazier, Villeréal and Beaumont du Périgord in south-west France.
La Foun is ideal for large family holidays, sleeping eight with an additional cot, private pool, unequalled panoramic views, and two hectares of land.
If you are feeling energetic a whole range of activities are on offer, walking, cycling, swimming, canoeing in the Dordogne, horseriding, tennis, golf and more. Or simply relax on the terrace and take in the exceptional views.
The house and garden are private and secluded, and from the terrace are 180-degree views over rolling Dordogne countryside. The house has been restored to combine character and modern living, with part of the house dating back to medieval times. The large garden and meadows are for exclusive use with vine and fruit trees (help yourself when fruit is ripe), games barns (including table tennis), an 18th-century pigeonnier, an outside dining-terrace, and a private swimming-pool for exclusive use. A fish pond has around 50 koi carp who are friendly and usually so eager to share some of your left-over bread they will come to the surface to say hello. The fields in front of the house belong to the property, filled with flora – including orchids before the mayor cuts the grass. La Foun is the ideal spot to relax and rejuvenate in a secluded, captivating and unspoilt part of France.
The four large bedrooms include a Super King 4-poster bed (Louis Chambre) and (Rose Chambre) a Queen-sized double-bed with beautiful views over the valley. The other two bedrooms, equally spacious, have twin beds and overlook the hamlet and medieval church.
The house has a large kitchen/ diner with a high-beamed ceiling and stone-tiled floor. The large fireplace has a wood-burning stove. A double Welsh dresser houses the well-stocked kitchenware. Both the kitchen dining-table (inside) and the terrace (outside) sit eight comfortably.
The salon (sitting-room) is comfortably furnished, with wi-fi and a DVD-player. There are three bathrooms: a wet-room, family bathroom, and a WC-and-washroom with the double-room upstairs.
