La Maison de Pan de Bois; Dordogne Medieval charm

La Maison de Pan de Bois was built towards the end of the 15th century, and was once one of the main shops in the ancient village of Carennac, as shown by its large arched window on the ground floor. Today, it is a finely restored three-storey townhouse with exposed stone walls, high ceilings and wooden beams, surrounded by other medieval properties.

The house is thoughtfully furnished and decorated with antiques and paintings, giving it a good balance of elegance and relaxation. Three bedrooms – two doubles and a single – mean that the house can sleep up to five, but it is ideal for a couple, or two couples.

Additional Location Information

Carennac is within easy reach of some of the major attractions of the Dordogne valley, such as the medieval pilgrimage town of Rocamadour, where penitents including Henry II have climbed the hundreds of steps to the summit on their knees. The magnificently preserved medieval town of Sarlat is around an hour to the west, while the smaller medieval town of Martel is closer at hand. Also well worth a visit are the town of Curement and Collonges-la-Rouge, where all the buildings are constructed of red stone. The high hilltop village of Turenne dominates the countryside for miles around, and the village’s medieval lords once ruled the region.
The Souillac/Brive airport is now open at Cressensac, only a 30 minute drive away.

The area abounds in ancient history, with the world famous cave paintings at Lascaux and the huge cavern at Padirac where tourist boats cross the underground lakes. The Hundred Years War also left its mark on the region, and the fortresses at Castelnaud and Beynac offer exhibitions of their past. Among the outdoor activities, canoes are available to hire at many points on the river, and for cyclists willing to take on some steep climbs, the roads are a treat. Marked walking trails wind throughout the region. There is an excellent water park just a few kilometres from the house; the Dordogne itself is also safe for a swim, and a large lake nearby offers sailing and rowing. The region is famous for its weekly markets and summer fêtes, so there is always something going on in the surrounding towns and villages.
