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. You can enjoy many lovely walks, great lanes for cycling, horse riding and golf courses of championship standard within a half hour drive.
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" dining on local good value produce.
Wine estates are nearby, and winetasting tours can be arranged to local vineyards or to Saint Emilion, one of the great Bordeaux wines.
A wonderful holiday awaits…
We have many great reviews on our website but here is a small selection:
"This is the perfect relaxing get away oozing with character, comfort and charm, we could have stayed for far longer than a week."
"Great location, with so many historic towns and markets within short drives. Mick the host was incredibly helpful with local tips and anything we needed but also in helping us sort our car issues - he went above and beyond. We'd definitely go back!"
"Great cycling country too. Castillones is a relaxed and friendly bastide and Monpazier, Eymet and Bergerac within easy reach. Thanks, Mick, for great hospitality and we hope to be back soon..."
