A hillside treasure with memorable views | Un trésor à flanc de colline avec des vues mémorables.
Maison Rocher is located a short 5 minute walk from Segur Le Chateau, one of France's 'plus beau villages'. Positioned up on the hillside this house is instantly charming. Filled with interesting traditional features, all lovingly restored. The interior compliments the external views with calming neutral tones, comfortable furnishings and a touch of style throughout. A one off home in a very unique location which is well worth a visit.
From the paved patio area and its open views of surrounding woodland, hidden chimneys and often a donkey or horse, you enter into the kitchen through bi-folding doors. The kitchen bright and airy, has a great dining table for socialising/admiring the view. The kitchen itself is newly fitted and comes with fresh modern appliances, providing everything you could possibly need.
Onto the first floor, accessed via the original staircase, you enter the very peaceful living room complete with wood burning stove for the cooler nights. The decor is calm and elegant without being fussy, the perfect place to curl up and read a book. The views really are magical from this room.
Off the living room you will find the master bedroom, a spacious room with calming colours, traditional features and a beautiful view. This bedroom has an adjoining 'Jack n Jill' bathroom so can be used as an ensuite but also accessible from the living room, which is quite a clever quirk. The door can be locked should you wish to use it solely as an ensuite.
Finally on the second floor you will find the second double bedroom, this bedroom is in the eaves of the house so has bundles of character - exposed beams and original masonry work are pride of place. It's cozy, inviting and provides everything you'll need for a good nights sleep!

Onto the top floor, there is a second light and airy double bedroom in the eaves of the house, bundles of character in this room and boasts open views.
Exterior The large patio area is where you will likely spend most of your time as it has direct access from the kitchen and see's the sun for most of the day however you can also find some shade under the well established lime tree and there are some lovely flower beds and herbs for your use. For the more adventurous there are grassy terraces below the front of the house where you can find many wildflowers and wildlife, or perhaps you will have the chance to say bonjour to the local âne or ânesse!

My husband and I stayed in Maison Rocher for a week in February and we loved it. This house is the perfect holiday home. Peaceful, private and cozy. We loved the wood burner and the cool decor. The kitchen is fab, well equipped, spacious and has a lovely terrace off, we enjoyed having our morning coffee watching the donkeys in the field beside. Segur le Chateau is a gem, and Pompadour is really handy with great restaurants. We didn't want to leave and will be back. Thank you for having us.
