A Renaissance manor house, redesigned in the 18th century, in an award-winning village to the north of Périgueux.
Thiviers, perched on the top of a combe, is a lively, little medieval town with all amenities. The town, renowned as being on the southern edge of the Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park, is an old stronghold along the road between Périgueux and Limoges as well as a stopover along the Way of Saint James. Its SNCF train station provides links to Paris via Limoges and to Bordeaux via Périgueux.
This property is just a few valleys away from Thiviers, set in the midst of verdant countryside in a “4-star village” laureate of the ANPCEN (national association for the protection of the sky and the night environment) due to its lack of light pollution. A municipal lake, on the outskirts of the town, features an area, cordoned off for swimming.
Set slightly back off the village square with its Romanesque church, this manor house and its outbuilding, separated by tall wooden gates, face a large garden, resembling undergrowth, a haven for birds. Said garden, enclosed by hedges and walls, is crossed in its centre by a curved alleyway that leads to a small access lane. Apart from on the north side, the buildings are surrounded by a vast, shady terrace, all on a level, where it is possible to glimpse a bread oven, a garden shed with a hip, slate roof and a pond, fed by the village spring used in prayer, its water said to be good for sickly children and stomach problems.
The manor houseConstructed in the Middle-Ages, probably on the vestiges of an old priory, this house comprises a Renaissance-style building, recognisable from its entrance door, and a rectangular pavilion set at right angles, modified in the 18th century and flanked by a square tower to the east which is also the entrance to a cellar and an old underground passageway. All the buildings have hip, slate roofs, identical to that covering the church bell-tower and featuring wrought iron weathervanes. The walls, constructed from exposed quarry stone blocks, span two levels and are topped with a double cornice under the eaves. The openings, the surrounds of which differ in shape and size from one building to the other, are harmonious courtesy of the identical wooden frames with their small windowpanes.
Ground floor
All the rooms have direct access to the terrasse via large, wooden, small-paned French windows. The original entrance, set in the west wing, is recognisable by its solid, wooden door, with a small window protected by a metal grill, and topped with a Renaissance-style sculpted lintel. The vast lounge includes a stairway tower, going up to the first floor and the attic space. The walls feature exposed stone. The high ceiling has robust, exposed joists. A monumental stone fireplace is flanked by two openings, one leading to a laundry room and a toilet, the other to a central, vaulted corridor which provides access to a kitchen and a spiral stairway. The floors in these rooms are covered with red terracotta tiles. The south wing comprises two rooms, lined with panelling. They feature marble fireplaces, cupboards, large French windows and parquet flooring. And lastly, a bathroom, on a mezzanine in the square tower, is fitted with a shower and a toilet.
First floor
The first floor can be reached via three stairways, one of which is outside and goes directly up from the outside terrace. This level comprises five, high-ceilinged bedrooms and has a layout almost identical to that of the ground floor. A central corridor, with a vaulted ceiling and nailed, wide strip, wooden flooring, provides access to three independent areas and a toilet. Above the kitchen, a vast, east-facing bedroom has a cupboard built into the wall and a private bathroom, with a shower, a bath and a toilet. Above the lounge are two bedrooms, …
