The Mill at Montcaret, with pool, is a charming 6-bedroom holiday home, offering you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the daily life of Dordogne's 'Périgord Pourpre', but still close to the splendid city of Bordeaux.
Recently restored, it features 2 large living areas, 2 fully-equipped kitchens, 5 bedrooms & a master-bedroom suite & dining room. There is an intimate outdoor terrace, extensive gardens with outdoor barbecue & dining areas, and a gazebo between the swimming pool and the millpond.
The key-words are: comfort, style, peacefulness and privacy, with antique & modern interiors true to the Mill's 18th century origins.
Surrounded by nature, the Mill is perfect for families looking for relaxing vacations in the Dordogne.
It is conveniently located, in a great environment, close to the quaint Bastide of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande and 20 minutes from Saint-Emilion and its famous vineyards.
Wine-lovers will adore the area, and the owner (who worked in the wine industry for 15 years & has been a tour guide for 5 years) can propose tailor made wine-tours, tastings & city visits.
Sportive guests will enjoy local marked walking trails, canoeing on the Dordogne river, horse-riding in the neighbouring village or golf in Saint-Emilion & Bergerac ... As for food-lovers, the region is fantastic with a multitude of great restaurants!!!
All of the property is open to our guests but the mill stream, mill race and mill pond are all fenced in.
