Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in August 2017

This lovely house and grounds filled all our criteria: enough space for 3 generations to coexist in great comfort, very peaceful rural location, straightforward journey from Calais, lots of activity provided for smallish children, and a great pool. We would agree with a previous reviewer that the photos do not do the place justice. We did also use Jeanette's father's...

We stayed at Jeanette her house in June, it is a beautiful house on a quiet location. (it's even better than the pictures!) The pool is a nice feature and wonderful to take a dive in on a hot summer day or just to relax in on an air mattress as it is surrounded with lavender. We would definitely come...

Le Marronier is a home with all home comforts. This sensitively restored 18C farm complex, of beautiful cream sandstone and oak, brings the traditional period buildings into the 21C, with some delightfully modern touches. It was the perfect spacious venue for a grandmother, her children and grandchildren. Catering was easy, as the kitchen was well equipped with a range, and...

Additional amenities & feature info
Formerly an old Truffle Farm, female pigs 'Truies' were used to seek out the 'black gold' truffle that the Perigord is so famous for. The barn was used to house the 'Truies', and the attached little barn was were they cooked up the pig food. With hundreds of kilos of truffles found each year actually on the property of Le Marronnier it is a shame that those quantities are not found anymore !

The barn with its lovely stonework retains its character with 'pierre apparent' throughout the property. With the old oak beams exposed it oozes character and charm.
Renovated to a high standard and finished with quality fixtures and fittings the Marronnier offers top quality accommodation.
The solid wooden dining table and leather covered chairs look out onto the terr...

About the neighbourhood
Perigueux is the capital of the Dordogne, this historic city is well worth a visit. Wander round the old medieval streets, sit and eat at one of the many restaurants and take in the atmosphere.
Just 25 minute drive from Le Marronnier, Perigueux is easily accessible.

The little village of Coulaures with its half church and wonderful stone bridge over the river takes you back in time. The small boulangerie offers a traditional artisan bread and patisseries and the local shop has plenty of basics in stock.

Excideuil is a thriving market town, with its old chateau towering over the local countryside, this very quaint town is worth wandering round. Pop down to the weekly Excedeuil market and sample some of the traditional French life. Sit and take coffee in the square after purchasing your de...
