This pretty 3 bedroom cottage nestles in rolling countryside, a gentle ride from the magnificent Dordogne river and a short walk from the hill top village of Castillionnes, with its restaurants, bars, and bustling weekly market.
Easy to find, only 20 minutes from Bergerac airport and 90 minutes from Bordeaux, it’s a cosy home from home offering a peaceful holiday with a private pool, swings and a trampoline in the garden, and a sun drenched terrace surrounded by lavender and lovely views. The perfect place to unwind with a glass of chilled rose after a day kayaking on the river, horse-riding, or even donkey trekking!
Should you manage to tear yourself away from the view, the pool, and that glass of wine, we have lots to occupy the whole family, tennis courts and a large public swimming pool a short walk away, a great sandy beach at Lougratte lake just 15 minutes drive away. The wonderfully preserved medieval villages of Issigeac, Eymet and Villereal are equally near-by and the gorgeous hilltop Bastide villages of Monpazier and Monflanquin, both with 30 minutes drive.
The Cottage: With all modern facilities, sleeps 6, it has 3 comfortable bedrooms, 1 double with an ensuite and 2 twin rooms (we are happy to change the double to a twin or a twin to a double upon request) a good sized family bathroom, an open plan living area with comfy sofas, tv and dvd player, a fully equipped kitchen including a large fridge freezer for all those cold drinks and tasty snacks, a gas cooker, a dishwasher (tablets provided), toaster, microwave, espresso machine and even an ice-cream maker.
A welcome pack is provided which includes tea, coffee, sugar, pasta, salt and pepper, cheese and a selection of vegetables from our own garden.
For lovely lazy outdoor eating, we provide a BBQ, complete with charcoal, firelighters and matches for a hassle free start to your holiday. The terrace is well equipped with tables and chairs for alfresco dining or you can lounge in comfort under the trees on our outdoor sofa and chairs.
For comfort and safety the pool has an easy to use cover for extra heat on a cloudy day and is securely fenced with a lockable gate, peace of mind if you have adventurous children. Pool towels are provided free of charge, to save space in your bags.
like to provide you with extras so you dont need to worry about the little things, eg dishwasher tablets, washing powder, we love the gite as if it was a home not just a place for you to stay and sleep, we want you to relax and just unwind from the stress of your normal home life.
children or any age will enjoy staying, there is a trampoline, tennis table, dvd's and free wifi !!!!!!!!!!!!!
but best of all a private pool, suitable for young and older children and adults, to play relax, it as a cover to keep the sun off in the heat of the day, and can be closed to protect from the rain if it come when you stay!!!! (fingers crossed it stays away)
its near to the local airport of Bergerac, 25 mins approx,
there is a number of markets to visit, and wine caves to visit when you need to pull yourself away from the pool !!!!
all in all a great place to stay
