Traditional, Perigordian Villa with honey-stoned facade and traditional shutters. Its elevated, panoramic river-vista pool area offers stunning views of the Dordogne, flowing immediately beneath. Soak-up the sun on steamer loungers, do a little fishing from the river bank, or cook using the large firepit. Enjoy dining on the perfectly set cobbled terrace overlooking the pool lit at night, or sit in the early evening and see magnificent river sunsets piercing the 'cinq arches' of the impressive Couze bridge, with the superb nightly illumination of the Chateau Mont-d'Onel above.

Its elevated, panoramic river-vista pool area offers stunning views of the Dordogne, flowing immediately beneath. Soak-up the sun on steamer loungers, do a little fishing from the river bank, or cook using the large firepit. Enjoy dining on the perfectly set cobbled terrace overlooking the pool lit at night, or sit in the early evening and see magnificent river sunsets piercing the 'cinq arches' of the impressive Couze bridge, with the superb nightly illumination of the Chateau Mont-d'Onel above. With rustic, character extending to exposed beams, local stone walls and cool, tiled floors, Cinq Arches has been carefully arranged over 3 floors with extended family and friends' groups in mind. It has four good-sized bedrooms (all ensuite) 3 looking directly over the river; one on the ground floor for easy access and a great, secluded space for parents/grandparents. All bedrooms equipped with cooling, colonial ceiling fans for comfort. The bright, well-equipped, granite-topped kitchen has a range cooker and all modern appliances, including an american fridge/freezer dispensing cold filtered water and ice. Off the kitchen is a small balcony giving a wonderful promontory to breakfast on and watch the early, misty river waking-up, or to just sit later in the day and watch the abundant bank-side bird life and see the occasional boat go lazily by. A large open plan sitting/dining area leads off the kitchen with a huge, extendable table that comfortably seats 12 for more formal dining, and a cool, stone basement off the pool area, that can be used as a play area for small children, or to just sit and relax in, over looking the pool, out of the midday sun. The front garden has a lawn play area and a cool, tile roofed loggia to provide a quiet retreat from the activities of the pool at the rear. The house provides a variety of different areas for sunbathing, and some quiet, secluded spaces and corners for reading or snoozing: all provided with comfortable outdoor garden and pool furniture, generously dotted around, allowing Guests to sit out relax, eat and talk in comfort. The small hamlet of Port de Couze, on the bridge, has 2 boulangeries, a cafe bistro 'sur le pont', a local produce delicatessen, a mini market and a couple of good restaurants on the river, all just 150 meters away from the house. Located on the outskirts of the lovely Bastide town of Lalinde, with its colourful market (Thursday), the house is a short cycle ride or 25 mins walk along the tree-lined canal to Lalinde, for lovely market square & medieval remnant walls. The highlight of any visit to the Dordogne is a lazy day on the river drifting downstream in a canoe, past breathtaking chateaux and scenery, with coaches to bring you back afterwards. Maison Cinq Arches is a much loved retreat in the middle of an historic area, with a beautiful river back-drop, offering something for all ages. If your plans are to visit and explore the area in an even larger group (20+), Cinq Arches can be connected with the neighbouring property (Maison Ballard) by opening the large, double garden gates on the river side to create a truly magnificent through garden/river vista venue with 2 pools, front and rear. Price reductions considered for smaller groups in less busy periods. Prices on application for larger groups in combined house option - Maisons Cinq Arches + Maison Ballard.More
