In Addition to Eggington House, we have a beautiful property in the Dordogne available to rent of relaxing summer getaways and cosy winter breaks.
The tiny hamlet of Prieuraud is situated in the north of the Dordogne, in the Perigord Vert, right in the middle of the protected Limousin Nature Regional Park. It is locatd less than half a mile from Piegut-Pluviers, 45 km from Angoulême, 65 km from Limoges and Perigueux and 200 km from Bordeaux.
Piegut-Pluviers is a lovely town with a fantastic market that has been running every Wednesday since the 17th century with stalls selling wonderful locally produced fruit and vegetables, honey, bread, cheeses and hams etc – all you could need!
The village has, as well as the weekly market, three boulangeries, a butcher, a fantastic delicatessen selling delicious pre prepared meals and home cured hams etc, an excellent wine shop, a chemist and a charming restaurant called Le Sens De La Terre.
Prieuraud is a great house comprising an 18th Century Farm House and converted barns of the same age and older.
It is set in a very secluded position on the edge of a hill with lovely views over the 15 acres of pastures and woodland belonging to the house.
When the current owners bought the Farm in 1997 it was buried in blackberry bushes and ivy. Now fully restored, it is full of charm, style and character.
