A simply gorgeous, traditional 1 bedroom Pigeonnier with modern finishing’s providing everything you would need for a wonderful French holiday.

About the Property

This gorgeous traditional tower called a Pigeonnier is the perfect romantic place for a couple to enjoy a wonderful holiday in south west France.  Oozing with traditional features the large lounge leads out onto a south facing terrace overlooking your own private pool.  There is a cosy log burner for those autumn evenings and wifi throughout to keep in touch with family and friends. 

Superbly situated for touring both the Dordogne and the bastide towns of the beautiful Lot et Garonne countryside, the property is only a half hour drive from several excellent 18-hole golf courses. There is a wealth of leisure activities in the area including horse riding, canoeing and kayaking, vineyard visits, traditional local markets, karting, water-parks and swimming lakes.

This area of old Aquitaine has a picture postcard village on every corner with wonderful towns bursting with history and interesting features. There are many chateaux within easy travelling distance and the countryside is amongst the finest in France.  

The owners highly recommend the bustle of the local French markets, all taking place in villages and towns dating back to the 12th century, and there are of course, a wealth of local restaurants where you can enjoy some superb food.  Most of the local villages hold "night markets" where you can dine on local food and wine, or perhaps try one of the many "tables d'hotes" showcasing great value local produce.

Wine estates are nearby, and wine tasting tours to local vineyards can be arranged or to Saint Emilion, one of the great Bordeaux wines.

A wonderful holiday awaits…
