Fine old farmhouse Lusignac

Overview
Farmhouse -
5 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Verteillac, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
La Borie is a lovely old farmhouse with enormous rooms, high ceilings, exposed beams and lots of character. It feels grand, but comfortable and lived in. We've tried to preserve the charm that our family fell in love with when we bought it 25 years ago, while providing all the modern facilities that people expect today. We've taken a personal interest in the furnishings and decor. There is an interesting mix of old and new, paintings by friends and family, and brocante collected over the years. It is in a small hamlet, just outside the beautiful village of Lusignac.
The house suits 2 families sharing, an extended family of several generations or groups of friends. But, it also appeals to smaller groups who appreciate the luxury of space and tranquility.
The house is set in large grounds. There is a courtyard next to the house, co...

Interaction with guests
I live next door with my partner John. We are always available to answer questions, give advice or help with difficulties. We take care of the pool and grounds, but are pretty discrete and sensitive to people's needs and wishes. Some visitors enjoy a chat over a drink, others enjoy their privacy.

About the neighbourhood
The countryside around Verteillac is largely gently rolling hills with fields of sunflowers and maize. Picture postcard in August. Very rural and ideal for walking or cycling. Some say, like the best of the UK without the cars. Our village of Lusignac is one of the prettiest in the area, with its little chateau, medieval church and popular bar restaurant. Verteillac is bigger and has the boulangerie, several bars and restaurants, and a great brocante on the first Sunday in the month. Friday market is the place to buy the specialities of the area, a few gifts to take home and to sip a coffee whilewatching the world go by.
The beaches at Aubeterre or Lake Jemaye are ideal outings for the children, to get their hands in some sand and rub shoulders with the locals. While a stroll around Bran...
