A Residence of Character and Charm ~ Ready to Move In !

Priory with Chateau in Background

The Périgord is one of the most popular travel destinations in France, and for good reason.  It is overflowing with delightful towns and hilltop villages, lovely rivers, prehistoric sites, excellent cuisine, good weather, and so much more.  All this makes the location of this historic Priory all the more wonderful.   Whether you are seeking a large, comfortable home for yourself or a ready-to-go bed and breakfast business, this is the place of which dreams are made!  

Located in a charming village high upon a hill, the Priory enjoys a magnificent view over the valley below.  A major attraction in the village is the massive castle with an interesting and tumultous history.  The castle, now owned by the French state and open to the public, adds to the appeal of this lovely hamlet which is not far from the bastide town of Monpazier which dates from 1284. 

Many excellent nearby restaurants, shops and colorful markets make this an ideal location for year 'round living.  There is a wide variety of things to do and see in Sarlat and Bergerac, including browsing the fine boutiques and stores.   Located between the Dordogne River to the north and the River Lot to the south, the Priory is ideally situated for exploring ancient towns and the many famous prehistoric sites  in the region.

The Priory, as you can see, is a warm, historic and cozy home with fine architectural details and decorated by someone with excellent taste.  It offers comfort and is safely nestled behind gated walls with parking for several cars.  There are five bedrooms now serving as bed and breakfast accommodations on the first floor, the spacious apartment on the ground floor and the owners private quarters on the second floor.  Priced very reasonably, the Priory can also be sold with the furnishings for an additional cost.

For more information, price and to answer your questions, please contact us at and specify Priory on the subject line of your email.  Merci!
