Holiday Rental House
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. ...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.

There is a courtyard next to the house, comprising a terrace, outdoor lounging area, dining under a lovely hanger, flower beds and lawn. Then, there are steps leading down to the fenced swimming pool, orchard and field. The large barn adjacent to the house has now been emptied and houses a bar and table tennis area. It's rustic but charming. There is plenty of space on the field for badminton or boules. The 13m pool has a diving board, and a shallow section ideal for little ones to learn to swim. We are hoping to install solar heating soon. There are lots of sun-lounges, umbrellas and a solar shower. The field has wonderful wild orchids in the spring, and I love to cut paths through the grass for playing hide and seek. There is so much to do about the house, that many visitors never leave the property apart from the odd visit to one of the numerous markets or restaurants nearby. I live next door, so am available to answer questions or have a chat, and to care for the More

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.
