    This cosy converted barn is situated in the pretty hilltop village of Fanlac, a short drive from the beautiful, riverside market town of Montignac in the heart of the Perigord Noir, home to the world-famous Lascaux caves. This is the perfect retreat for those wishing to explore the many châteaux, caves and other pre-historic sites, sample the famed gastronomy or simply chill out in the private enclosed garden, with its peaceful views of unspoilt countryside stretching to a distant horizon.
    The barn has been sympathetically converted to retain many original features while offering modern comforts. It is situated within the private courtyard of the owners’ second home that has been in the family for generations. The large open-plan living/dining room contains an ancient bread oven, used by the former owner for the weekly bake during WWII. There is a well-equipped kitchen corner and stairs leading to the bedroom, bathroom and separate toilet in the eves. Although the bedroom has ample headroom, the wooden ceiling is lower above the last three stairs ascending and the first three descending. Although the discrete owners are not permanently resident in Fanlac, very occasionally they may stay in the house adjacent to the barn within the property. However guests are assured of exclusive use of the garden and driveway/courtyard for their vehicle and their privacy will be respected.
    Fanlac is an historic settlement with a 12-century fortified church, central well and many ancient dwellings lovingly cared for by the current inhabitants, most of whom are from the village or nearby. It is known as the place where the mythical folklore hero Jacquou le Croquant grew up, and was used as the location for the 1960’s French TV series of that name. The traditional family-run restaurant close to the church also bears the name of Fanlac’s most illustrious fictional inhabitant.
    For those feeling energetic, the surrounding countryside is excellent walking terrain, with a public footpath, the GR 36, passing right by the lower gate of the property. It is a lovely region for cyclists, if somewhat challenging in the more hilly areas. Canoes and kayaks can be hired in Montignac and a gentle paddle down the Vézère river can be a memorable way to spend a few hours for those so inclined. There is a man-made lake just outside the hamlet of Tamnies, about a 20-minute drive away through lush countryside, with sandy beaches, pedalos and a snack bar. There are street markets in Montignac on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, a wide range of food outlets, restaurants and cafés, two supermarkets, a cinema and music festival during the summer. A public outdoor swimming pool can be found 7km away. Shop 7km and restaurant 500m.

    Approximate distance to Brive-Souillac airport is 67 km.

    This cottage occupies a corner of heaven. The village is beautiful, the area fascinating, and the cottage utterly charming. We were lucky that the owner was in the “big house” nearby on a rare visit, and her information and advice was invaluable. We did not want to come home! Could not recommend this cottage more highly.
