The property is situated in open countryside just outside Montagnac-sur-Lède, 5 minutes from Monflanquin, between Agen and Bergerac, which are both 45 minutes away
Montagnac holds “Le marché aux délices” every Friday evening in July and August, where tourists and residents meet up on the village’s school playground to create an evening meal from all the local produce available, including wine, and join in the dancing .
Monflanquin is an old Bastide town with winding streets and fabulous views.
There are all relevant amenities in the village - cafés, restaurants, bakeries, ‘tabac’, together with a large Casino supermarket in the adjacent commercial park, and super weekly street markets.
This area of France is one of the most beautiful and one of the most popular.
Lovely countryside interspersed with medieval Bastide towns and fairytale châteaux rise from the morning mist.
It’s a great region for food lovers; all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie and canard, superb Blonde Aquitaine beef, a multitude of fruit including the famous Agen prune, mushrooms of all types are in abundance.
There are numerous antique markets throughout the year in the area.
All information brochures for local facilities are available at the tourist information office in Monflanquin, but a selection is provided at the house.
Bergerac (40 minutes) was once a flourishing port for the wine trade. It still today has a picturesque harbour where you can take a boat trip along the river Dordogne, or a miniature train ride around the Bastide town, viewing the many half timbered houses with terracotta decoration.
« Men golfed 5 times at Villeneuve sur Lot. This course can be recommended! Villeneuve sur Lot town very good. Lots of eating areas and good shops.
We all had a fantastic time holidaying in this super property. Many places around to visit and enjoy the ambiance of this lovely area. Monflanquin nice place to visit. Interesting square to sit around over a good beer and coffees! » D. Sadler
« Thank you for opening up this wonderful home. It sounds an amazing project to restore this house and you should be very proud. Our family have had a lovely, relaxing week. You have made everything so comfortable and easy and the quality is exceptional. The pool is great, the terraces, the gardens and the landscaping all perfect – I was even inspired to help out with “dead-heading “.( You have a job next time – Owner!) Only comments from my boys were that they would have loved an outdoor table tennis table and badminton net! – Nearly perfect then (Owners comment – could be there for next year!) We split our time between lazy days here and day visits. Thank you for leaving books and leaflets for plenty of ideas and inspiration. One thought – I did think it would be lovely to see a photo album of your building and renovation project on Bertot Bas, even some commentary on its history and your inspiration. Thank you. Colin (Owners comment – after 6 years in the demolition and build – the photo book is in the making and follows for next year, once about 800 photo’s have been sorted out!) » Whaley family
« Thank you for an amazing stay. We have stayed in many villas over the years, but none have the attention to all those details that make life so much easier – great fridge, BBQ, range, etc. Bedrooms and bathrooms all beautiful. Although Super King beds and rain shower heads would top things off nicely! A pleasure to find knives that cut, although a decent peeler would be a great addition! Pool was great, kids loved it and so did we. Gary was helpful. Definitely be back. Very sad to leave. Thanks again. » K. Southwell
« We have had an absolutely fantastic two weeks! What a lovely house, beautiful grounds , and an amazing pool. We have really enjoyed exploring the local area, sampling the wine and food and doing lots of biking and running. Thank you so much. » Helen & James
« We had a fantastic time at the property. The standard of the fixtures, fittings and furniture is the highest we have come across. It was especially nice to have all the rooms finished to a similar standard of quality, so that nobody felt like they had a bad room.
Our thanks to the owner. The local liaisons, Gary and Louise were also very helpful and friendly. » Southwell family
« We loved staying in your house! We felt very at home here. The children loved the pool – the adults loved the space and the dining areas. The house has everything you can think of so much thought has been put into providing everything you would need whilst on holiday – perfect. With 4 young girls in the house we didn’t worry about how much noise they made – especially when watching “Mamma Mia” on surround sound - very loud! The weather has been exceptional - 30degrees – and we enjoyed a lovely night time swim on our last evening! Thank you! »
« What a wonderful home you have here! We were amazed at the house, the comfort and the kids adored the pool. We have stayed in this region many times and this is by far the best place we have stayed. We will miss Bertot Bas – lots of lovely family memories made. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy a little slice of Perigord heaven. » The Louvres
