The property: Domaine de Bonnefond

Domaine de Bonnefond is a beautiful maison forte (or ‘strong house’), with a pedigree that extends all the way back to the 12th century. With a history as long as this, it’s not surprising that this historic house exudes character – including its own coat of arms, beautifully carved above the main entrance. The lovely cobbled walled courtyard at the front of the house even contains stone pillars that are the remains of medieval cloisters that once led to the property’s very own chapel.

The house, which can accommodate up to 12 people, has been refurbished to contemporary standards, whilst still retaining its traditional features and character. The accommodation is set on three levels, surrounding a magnificent central staircase comprising 43 steps carved from a single block of white stone. This country mansion is surrounded by a full fifty hectares of sweeping areas of meadows, woodland and gently sloping hills.

The Dordogne

The Dordogne is a beautiful landscape of rolling hills, sparkling rivers and ancient woods of oak and chestnut. And through the ages, man has enhanced this pastoral setting – dotting the landscape with quaint villages, golden citadels and fairy-tale châteaux. It’s a land of quiet abundance, where time seems to go more slowly and local festivals and the passing of the seasons are still celebrated with delight, just as they have been for hundreds of years.
