    About this property

    If Jane Austen’s characters took a holiday in the south of France, they might select this storied villa in the Dordogne. Generations of family ownership have each left their mark; you could spend days investigating the historic trinkets and artwork on the walls. However, it’s certain you’ll be drawn outside to the grounds, where a 70-hectare walnut grove and a private pool beckons you.
    From the moment you see this ivy-covered family villa, you’ll fall in love. The carefully tended grounds, pretty walking paths, and the allure of the surrounding countryside all conspire to give you a taste of refined country life in days gone by. Inside you’ll delight at the antique furniture and decor, especially the hunting lodge style living room.
    Located in the commune of Liorac-sur-Louyre, you’ll find picturesque chateaux and town markets all around. However, this holiday villa is not as remote as it feels - it’s a mere 20 minute drive to Bergerac, the beating heart of the Dordogne (and site of the closest airport). Here, visit the Musee du Vins to learn about the wine of the region, and then put your knowledge to practical use at the dozens of wineries nearby.

    Liorac sur Louyre is a picturesque small village in the canton of Lalinde, boasting medieval chateaux, manor houses and surrounded by a unique natural reserve featuring blocks of sandstone and extremely rich in flora and fauna.
    The riverside market town of Le Bugue, boasting fascinating narrow streets, traditional houses, several tourist amenities a very popular Tuesday market is a short drive away from Villa Sandie.
    The medieval town of Lalinde (15 km), with its little lake ideal for picnics and lively Thursday market is also worth a visit.
    The city of Bergerac, with its international airport is conveniently located at 15 km. A visit to the old town standing out for its medieval architecture, narrow streets full of local boutiques and good restaurant, is highly recommended. Here, you will also find the unmissable Maisons de Vins and will have the opportunity to take a tour along the Route de Vins de Bergerac.
    Wine has been produced in the region for well over 400 years. Wine enthusiasts will find similar grapes to those found in the Bordeaux region including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec reds; Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadet whites. 
    The Dordogne is the supplier of almost half of France’s fine produce including truffles, cepes and foie gras, which are available at the Metairie adjoining the estate. 
    Finally, Sarlat (60 km) bustling narrow pebbled streets, a number of ancient buildings, beautiful gardens and lively markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays is a must visit for all.
    The whole region is a true haven for nature and sport lovers alike offering a wide array of outdoor activities, from horse-back riding, to tennis, mountain-biking, golfing and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities.
