    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    'Briance', Rue des Mellons, Astaillac is on the site of a medieval monastery and although mostly built in the early 19th Century there is a lot of ecclesiastical stonework incorporated in its construction, including a huge fireplace with the symbol of the sacred heart carved into its stonework. It has wonderful views out over the Dordogne river valley and the Chateau de Castelnau de Bretenoux.

    The house was built around 1814, it is of typical local architecture in stone with a turreted pigeonnier. It is actually two houses joined and set in its own grounds. It is an ideal painter's retreat, quiet but on the edge of a village only 4Km from the busy Abbey town of Beaulieu sur Dordogne.

    There is ample patio and garden space in which to relax either in the hammock or loungers...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I recently stayed here for two amazing weeks with a group of friends. The house is situated in a quiet and peaceful hilltop village with spectacular views of the surrounding area. Just a short 10 min drive to the Dordogne river and lots of places to rent canoes from nearby. The house is rustic and is very quirky and charming. It was just what we were after. Lots of space to relax and very well equipped for larger groups. The owners were very helpful if we had any problems or queries. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing rustic french holiday. more
