Fonqueyrade promises a dream holiday in the true atmosphere of a French country house! An impressive stone house with stately balcony, alongside a charming courtyard, bordered by a large garden. All this, combined with stunning views over the green hills of the Dordogne, makes this luxury villa with guest accommodation an ideal holiday destination.
Located in an idyllic rural setting in the Dordogne, Fonqueyrade is just a 20-minute drive from Bergerac Airport. The villa was built around the 18th century as a Maison de Maître, an impressive home for a lawyer, land owner or other person of prestige. Despite the sympathetic renovation and refurbishment, the rustic appearance of the house has been preserved. Modern comfort harmoniously balances traditional elements. The interior is sleek and stylish, yet also romantic and inviting owing to the antique beds and richly coloured carpets. Shades of grey bring out the warm tones of the wide oak floorboards, stone walls and large fireplaces. Fully immerse yourself in this harmonious atmosphere and enjoy this luxury holiday home together with your family, friends or loved ones.
Whether you want to recover from your fast-paced job or just leave your everyday worries and obligations behind, Fonqueyrade is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing holiday. The spacious, fully equipped kitchen with its terracotta tiled floor and large farmhouse dining table exudes an inviting ambience. Enjoy the first cup of coffee of the day here, relax over a family dinner together, play a board game or card game or chat for hours while enjoying a good glass of wine from the Perigord and tasty French cheeses from the local market.
Outside, you will find the fantastic heated swimming pool, a lounge and dining area, a shed full of ball games and outdoor toys, several lawn areas and romantic orchards. The beautiful guest accommodation is also accessible from the outside. Small meals or snacks can also easily be prepared in the kitchen here, which gives direct access to the sun terrace, where sun loungers, parasols and a refrigerator are provided.
Enjoy this haven of peace and comfort to the fullest, and be sure not to miss a trip into the beautiful surroundings! An abundance of activities and sights awaits for all ages, from the demanding teenager to the oldest family member. Go mountain biking, kayaking or golfing. Organise a picnic on one of the islets in the River Dordogne. Visit the picturesque Saint-Emilion, Monpazier or Monflanquin. Stroll through the winding streets and historic squares, where you can pause for a cup of coffee or an ice cream. Experience the beautiful castles, villages, prehistoric caves and vineyards of the Dordogne valley. In short, make the most of this wonderful environment!
