15C Manor House in the Southern Dordogne
Beautifully Restored Residence: Currently Operating as a Luxury Bed and Breakfast.
Le Prieuré is an immensely appealing family home, at present a highly successful Bed and Breakfast, offering 640sq m. of perfectly restored accommodation.
This 15C residence, first restored during the Renaissance, is steeped in history. It has 6 en-suite bedrooms, a two room private apartment, a very large kitchen, 2 large living rooms and a dining room. There are panoramic views over the surrounding countryside from the main reception rooms and bedrooms. More recent renovation includes re-wiring, re-plumbing, central heating throughout, including underfloor heating on the ground floor and double glazed windows.
Le Prieuré is awash with period features, throughout the reception rooms and bedrooms, reflecting the centuries that have gone by. Notable features include the 15C stone spiral staircase, the original flag stone floors, the ornate stone masonry surrounding the windows, the original stone sink and toilet pan chiseled into the 1m thick south-west wall, as well as the Prieure’s three original stone water wells. The majority of rooms face south with large Renaissance windows creating an exceptionally light living space.
Nestled in a hilltop village in the southern Dordogne, Le Prieuré became, at the end of the 15C, the residence for Church canons serving the village and the neighbouring Château. The south wall of Le Prieuré was part of the fortification of the village, dating back to the 12th century and is over 1m thick. The Tower of Le Prieuré is thought to be the last of several that existed along the perimeter of the original defensive wall of the village.
