Fleuret - The Cottage


Gaze over to glorious hilltop Curemonte from the pretty cottage's dormers, loll by the pool, play games in the barn. Character and space


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


On its timeless wooded hill, the red sandstone farm cottage was restored by Tim and Gilly some years ago and has been much appreciated since. Original stones and beams were preserved and terracotta floors and pine cupboards put in; cookery books, strings of garlic and board games add to the laid-back feel. The ancient bread oven, its brick surround charred by the ages, lends a rustic air to the dark old kitchen while the sitting room is easy with cherry-pink sofas and stove. Attic bedrooms, simple and cosily carpeted, have small dormer windows to more-than-pretty views. French windows let you out of the kitchen into an outdoor barbecue area where you can dine and gaze on fields and woods, never-ending hills and glorious hilltop Curemonte. There’s also a super walled-off pool, shared with your delightful British hosts next door, and a vast oak-floored barn that you may use whenever you like: table tennis, billiards, dancing, grand piano; it can be hired for weddings and workshops, too. An unfussy, no-frills home in a lovely setting, for a family in search of peace and space.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Tim & Gilly Mannakee

  • Just 3km from medieval village of Curemonte with 3 Chateaux, for centuries part of the Viscounty of Turenne, and during the second world war briefly home to the writer Colette
  • Easy reach of many superb historical villages and chateaux including Turenne, Collonges la Rouge, Carennac, Castelnau-Bretenoux, Martel with it's seven towers, the abbey of Aubazine and of course Rocamadour.
  • Sample the local walnut wine, a speciality of the area, or visit our local vineyard, Mille et Une Pierre.
  • Weekly evening market followed by barbecue in Curemonte throughout July and August- a great way to meet the locals and sample the local produce!
  • Walks and cycle rides from the house- routes provided. Or hire canoes from Argentite or Beaulieu sur Dordogne and paddle down the amazing Dordogne River
  • 3 golf courses within 30 minutes drive, and we are just 30 minutes from Brive Valley of the Dordogne airport
