Thiviers, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Lionheart House is a beautiful stone built property, elegant, refined and characterful, with wooden beams, high ceilings, flagstone floors, and antique furniture.
This unique detached residence with fully enclosed walled gardens, has a pergola, loggia, and many exterior terraces with relaxing views over the green rolling country side and forests of the Dordogne. It is scenically located next to an ancient chapel and church (no bells!) in a small quiet French village

This ancient property has been refurbished in recent years to produce a characterful but modern rural retreat. Numerous sun terraces provide all you need for an unforgettable holiday in the private gardens.

Situated a five minute drive from Thiviers with its many supermarkets, bakeries and restaurants, the rest of the Dordogne is an easy journey from the house.

Lionheart House was a great location for my family. The house itself is in a beautiful hamlet about 5 km from the local market town of Thiviers. The house was built in the mid 1800s and retains many of the features of a period property while still providing travellers with the comforts required by modern living. The local area had a lot of tourist attractions such as caves, chateaux and beautiful towns to keep us busy during the day and the Sky TV channels, books and videos took care of the evenings quite nicely. The local Plan D'eau was absolutely gorgeous for a swim and was not too busy even on the hottest day of the week.
