Dating back to 1640, the Manor House at Fleuret has been lovingly restored, retaining many original features, and offers an extremely spacious home with six bedrooms, and the option of renting a cottage on site if you need additional space (2 more bedrooms). Originally a small hamlet, home to 12 families, the magnificent red sandstone buildings are set in acres of meadow and woodlands.
Larger groups can also rent the cottage at Fleuret, giving a total occupancy of 18 people. The village of Curemonte dates back to the 11th century and has been honoured with the title of "L’un des plus beaux villages de France". Despite its numerous attractions (3 Chateaux, 3 churches and a market hall), it remains very much a working village, with a post office, bar/tabac and three restaurants. There is also a local farmers market once a week in the summer months. Beaulieu sur Dordogne, just 10 minutes from Curemonte and, as its name suggests, situated on the Dordogne River, is a small market town with many shops, several bars and restaurants and a twice-weekly market. The Benedictine Abbey and Chapelle des Penitents are in the centre of the town, canoes can be hired at the river, as well as boat trips on the traditional "Gabares".
A 15 minute drive takes you to villages, chateaux, caves and of course the Dordogne River. To the west is Collonges-le Rouge and Turenne, a 15th century village. To the south and east is the Dordogne valley. The Chateaux of Castelnau, Belcastel and Montal are all close by, while the citadel of Rocamadour is only 30 minutes drive. For those wishing to explore further afield, the world famous Lascaux caves can be reached in an hour, along with many other attractions of the Lower Dordogne. The Cahors and Bordeaux wine regions are within easy reach. For those seeking more active pursuits, horse riding can be arranged locally, canoeing down the Dordogne River, tennis, bicycles are easily hired, three nearby golf courses, and we can also arrange hot-air ballooning trips. For many, however, the main attraction of the region are the rolling hills, and peace and quiet of our immediate surroundings.
