The large heated swimming pool is in a secure garden next to the house with a decking area, sun loungers and umbrellas. Guests are welcome to stroll through the meadows. The property is suitable for extended families or groups of friends and is available for shorter breaks outside of the main holidays. Domaine des Faures: 1673 is the date in the stone above the entrance while one section is known to be even older. The property was once a very important domaine with links to Chateau Biron and is steeped in history. Such is the very special ambiance of the place, that previous residents from the 1930's and 1940's have returned to go down memory lane. The estate was once a bastide farm with some of the stone walls still standing and others still waiting repair. A secret room in the attic hid soldiers and refugees during the last war. The very special quality of Les Faures needs to be experienced and past guests have all commented on how restorative and enjoyable their holiday has been. Out of the main holiday season the owners will organise specialist tours for groups wishing to explore the Dordogne region. The house is built of local stone and has been renovated to a high standard. The reception rooms are double aspect, light and spacious. It offers comfortable, easy-style living and is well equipped. There are several places to sit and relax giving guests space and privacy for individual quiet moments. Dining can be alfresco, in the farmhouse styled kitchen or in the more formal dining room. The bedrooms are all spacious,light and airy with each having its own ensuite bathroom. Two of the bedrooms can be made up either as a double or twin as they have 'zip/lock beds' .More
