Ségur le Chateau
Sleeping up to 8, Les Figues is wonderful medieval French house originally built for a noble barrister in the 14th century - the house can be found in a hidden French valley on the edge of the idyllic village of Ségur le Chateau, one of France's 'Plus Beaux Villages'. Warmth and charm fill the soaring beamed ceilings and beautiful fireplaces.
Original details tell the story of the past while comfortable furniture and modern fittings ensure a relaxed holiday. A series of private outdoor spaces and gardens which find their way to the banks of the River L'Auvézère are filled with apple blossom and beautiful rose blooms.
Away from the charms of 'Les Figues' you will find the stunning village of Ségur le Chateau. Peace abounds and is only broken by the sound of bleating lambs in springtime, swifts feeding on the wing, cicadas as night falls and the faint chatter from the restaurant terraces only a few moments walk away.
Spend time at 'Les Figues' and join those who have discovered its charms and return again and again to recharge in this rare peaceful hidden place.
The house is set within beautiful private gardens and is comprised of 3 double bedrooms and one twin and benefits from two well appointed bathrooms. There is a large living room and fully equipped spacious kitchen diner.
