Mirandole 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms | Extra Mezzanine Bedroom | Small Party Rate | Sleeps 6 - 8
Martel, situated in the Dordogne valley area of the Lot, is a fine example of a Gallic town full of life and exuberance. Historic stone buildings house restaurants, cafés and shops, with narrow streets leading to the main square where a beautiful covered market place takes centre stage. Surrounded by undulating countryside through which the River Dordogne flows, Martel will no doubt appeal to many. Just a short distance (2km) from this lovely spot, we came across Mirandole, an eye-catching property which has been recently built in the local style.
From its elevated position, Mirandole enjoys far reaching views towards Martel and beyond. In fact, the owners loved the vista so much that they designed the house to take full advantage of its situation.
Internally, the ground floor is dedicated to the bedrooms and bathrooms whilst the open plan living /dining room occupies the whole of the first floor. Here, French windows frame the views and in the kitchen area, a window seat has been incorporated into the units. At one end of this spacious room, bi folding doors open fully allowing a seamless transition between the comfortable living area and an inviting outdoor dining terrace, where 5 small steps lead down to the adjacent pool and lower terrace, all positioned to make the most of the evening sun and the sunshine throughout the day.
Within easy driving distance, you will come across many famous sites including the spectacular village of Rocamadour (21km), the fascinating caves at Padirac (28km) and the well known town of Sarlat-la-Canéda (an hour's drive) in the Dordogne. Closer to home, a ride on the steam train that runs along the cliffs between Martel and St Denis will delight children and we are sure everyone will enjoy the summer evenings in Martel.
Parties paying the small party rate will have use of two bedrooms only.
