Some snaps of Maison Porte del Marty

To the left our hallway on the first floor, the wooden planks are made from poplar which is naturally resistant to wood worm/borer. France has a very healthy population of wood worm, termites and capricorn/deathwatch beetle, fortunately 600 year old  Maison Porte del Marty has weathered the storm pretty well. The main entrance hall looking lovely in walnut wood panels, classic tiles and fabric walls on one side of the tri-fold doors and a river pebble floor and plastered finish on the other, a family of our many 100’s of local swans which spend the full year on the river in Lalinde, our dining room has wooden panels from Louis XIV which were boarded up to protect them damage during the War of Religion, our kitchen is truely the heart of our house and the room we spend most of our time in, with a fabulous view over the river and full length French doors it’s a very fine place to be in all the seasons. Also some shots of our family of cats, all wild or born to wild cats, but well loved and fed and very much a part of our lives, for this reason we are not able to accomodate people with allergy’s to cats- our apologies !…and to finish some shots of our ever changing river, the energy and character of the Dordogne River is a real treat. Cheri and I are beach bums from New Zealand where a beach is never more than an hour away, the Dordogne River and it’s ever changing current is an excellent substitute for the ebb and flow of the ocean. A full moon, the ripple or roar of the river and its sparkling surface is quite mesmerizing.
