In the heart of the Perigord Noir, just under Sarlat, you will find your dream holiday home Le Prieuré de Fénelon. This historic place offers luxury, a stunning view and piece and quiet. The heated pool and sun terrace together with the high quality services guarantee a relaxed vacation in France. When we walked through the main gate, the beauty of the ancient courtyard and lovely house opened our eyes. A little hidden gem.
Le Prieuré de Fénelon dates back to the 17th century and has been sympathetically and loving restored by the Rougié family. It is situated on top of a hill overlooking the rolling hills of the Dordogne valley and the impressive Château de Fénelon. This French countryside offers many chateaux and ancient villages. Le Prieuré de Fénelon (x8 guests) has great possibilities for larger groups since it can be rented with 3 neighboring houses: La Métairie de Fénelon (x10 guests), L’Ostalet de Fénelon (x2 guests) and the possibility to accommodate an additional (x2 guests) in the small holiday cottage on site La Petite Maison, creating a charming little private village.
The former presbytery Le Prieuré de Fénelon can accommodate 8 people and has been tastefully decorated with an eye for detail and in line with the historical elements. The subtle combination of medieval furniture and some Orient inspired furniture create a unique and warm atmosphere. The authentic architecture of the building, the large rooms with monumental fireplaces, walls of natural stone and wooden beamed ceilings breathe the atmosphere of times gone by.
Through the old gate you enter the paradisiacal courtyard, from where beautiful stone steps lead you to the dining room and the adjoining kitchen. You also have a second professional (summer) kitchen (cuisine d' été) which makes it delicious to eat with the whole party outside on the covered terrace. Special attention has been paid to the design of the kitchens so that you can fully enjoy culinary delights. Cutlery and crockery are made of silver and porcelain and beautiful glasses complete it all for an elegant dinner or festive meal. The charcoal barbecue also offers countless possibilities for lovers of a cosy BBQ. Private catering service available!
The beautifully paved courtyard with ornate fountain also offers access to the 17th century chapel (a multifunctional space for weddings and parties or for business gatherings), a private heated swimming pool and the beautiful gardens. Here you have a sublime view of the valley and the neighbouring Château de Fénelon.
