Our beautiful house ‘Villa Perigord’ was created late in the 1980’s and it has kept this style throughout. It follows the main characteristics of Perigord houses.There are some jaw dropping decorative features that are a cross between horrifying and kitsch dependant on your point of view – who would have a bright pink bath and washbasin……
You walk up a few steps and turn the corner on to the covered terrace. This is where we eat lunch and dinner in the summer as it offers shade and a breeze which is very welcome in the heat.
Through the front door and we have a washroom to the right with a beautiful vintage blue and white tap and sink which has to be seen and often gives gasps of delight.
The hall leads through to the kitchen with sink, fridge freezer, tea and coffee making facilities all ready for you. The other door leads to the dining and leaving space. Once again, 1980s furniture abounds with a lovely large table ready to seat our guests when they choose to eat indoors. There is also space to sit and relax with a tv if required. Another door leads out to the conservatory – perfect to eat breakfast in the morning or perhaps apero in the evening if the weather is not conducive to having this on the terrace.
There is one ensuite bedroom on this floor, Olivier, which is a double or triple room with the infamous pink bathroom equipped with bath, washbasin and toilet and over bath shower. Spacious and bright but you may need your sunglasses. A double bed and single bed with a wardrobe and dresser should meet your needs.
If you take a trip up the stairs from the hall, you will find three bedrooms. Cerise – a double room with a private shower room. Funnily enough, the windows and shutters open out on a huge cherry tree. Traditional wood furniture and a nice aspect make this a very popular room.
Bedroom Etoile has a skylight which looks out on to the ever clear skies viewing the milky way from the double bed. Another delightful room with a double bed, chest of drawers, chair and bedside tables.
Bedroom Noisetier has a double and a single bed – ideal for two who want to share a room without sharing a bed. A triple wardrobe and additional storage give a feeling of space and tradition all in one. The window and shutters open out to look at the swimming pool and garden. This is a lovely quiet room.
The bathroom shared between these two bedrooms has an over bath shower, washbasin and toilet and plenty of mirrors and storage for all essential items.
If you return to the hallway, you will find another set of stairs leading to two bedrooms. Hortensia is a double or triple room with it’s own shower room and a dressing area.
Figuier has a large bed for one person and own shower room. Tastefully furnished and cool in the hot summer months.
Our other house is Villa Quercy, check it out so see which room you would prefer to stay in.
