The setting of this sturdy 17th-century stone farmhouse is breathtaking: views of hills and woodland fill every window. This is a sensitive restoration by the photographer owner who lives with wife Gilly and their family in the other half of the building. Walls are thick, space plentiful and deep windows limit unwelcome light. The kitchen has warm timber flooring, a wood-burner in the ancient hearth, an antique table for family feasts; the sitting room has colour-washed walls, exposed stone, comfortable sofas that can take an unruly child or two. One double room is downstairs, the other four are in the gabled attic with white walls, no clutter, minimal furniture or storage. There are books, games, a video library and Tim’s photographs on the walls (ask about his courses on landscape photography). Also in this mini-hamlet, sharing farmyard, games room and pool, are a barn and a cottage: you choose to be sociable or private. Medieval, hilltop Curemonte, waving to you across the valley, has a summer market and there are masses of castles and caves to discover.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Tim & Gilly Mannakee

  • Just 3km from the mediaval village of Curemonte, part of the Viscountcy of Turenne dating back to the 9th Century. Other noteable sites include Collonges la Rouge, Carennac and Rocamadour all within 30 minutes of Fleuret . Fleuret dates back to 1640.
  • Walks and cycle rides from the house- routes provided. Enjoy the walnut groves and local vineyards while following 'Le Routes des Noix', or follow in the footsteps of St Jean Compostala whose pilgrimage passed through Rocamadour
  • Weekly evening market followed by barbecue in Curemonte throughout July and August- a great way to meet the locals and sample their produce. Our village restaurant 'Le Barbacane' offers great value meals, or try out the Ferme Auberge de la Grotte.
  • Tim is a professional landscape photographer and every year we run a workshop here at Fleuret. We also offer yoga retreats and the property it the ideal location to celebrate a special occasion- we have hosted weddings, birthdays and family reunions.
  • The river Dordogne is just 10 mins from Fleuret, canoe downstream for a few hours, or picnic on the banks. Beaulieu sur Dordogne is known locally as the riviera of the South West, a little further upstream you'll find Argentat and Les Tour de Merles
  • The writer Colette famously spent a summer at the Chateaux de la Plas in Curemonte during the second world war.The Chateau was owned by her daughter, Bel Gazou, while Colette lived at Chateau Castel Nouvel just outside Brive during her second marriage.
