La Maison aux Puits is set in two acres of mature gardens and grounds, with wonderful views of the Dordogne countryside. Guests have exclusive use of the beautiful floodlit swimming pool, which measures 11m x 5m. The pool is equipped with an alarm which conforms to the French safety regulations.
A covered terrace provides shade throughout the day - the perfect place to relax with a good book and a glass of local wine. It's also an ideal vantage point for admiring the beautiful scenery, the garden and the house. Alongside the covered terrace is a boules pitch. Seats have been provided throughout the grounds so that guests can either socialise together or find a more secluded spot to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. There is also an indoor games area with table tennis, table football, badminton, darts...
La Maison aux Puits is surrounded by rolling green fields and woodland. Characteristic sunflowers, corn and other local crops can be seen everywhere in abundance and it is easy to see why this part of the Dordogne is called "Périgord Vert". Its rural, unspoilt location guarantees guests an authentic experience of "la vie paysanne".
