Location

The property is located in open countryside, close to Monbalen and Laroque Timbaut between Agen to the South (20 minutes) and Villenueve-sur-Lot to the North (15 minutes).

Laroque (5 minutes) has a small supermarket, restaurants, café bars and a good market on Thursdays.

All major supermarkets and shops in Villeneuve and Agen.

On the hill above Saint-Sylvestre (15 minutes), is the ancient bastide village of Penne d'Agenais, topped by a basilica with a shining metal dome that can be seen for miles around. The old village is a warren of little streets and lovely old stone houses that wind up the hill to the basilica and lovely views across the countryside. Just on the market square is a general grocery store and there are various artisan workshops and several reasonably priced restaurants.

Monflanquin (30 minutes) is an old bastide town with winding streets and fabulous views. All amenities in the village including large supermarket, cafés, restaurants, bakeries (and an English food shop! Great for bacon, sausages etc…)

Traditional street market every Thursday morning.

The Dordogne 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.

Its a great region for food lovers; all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie and canard, mushrooms of all types are in abundance.

Many antique markets throughout the year. All info at the tourist information office.

Don't miss a trip to La Roque-Gageac, a stunningly beautiful village under the towering cliffs. The village regularly wins France's 'Prettiest Village' competition. Good canoeing centre here.

Competing with La Roque-Gageac in the prettiness stakes is the village of Carennac. Elevated just above the South bank of the Dordogne river, it is best known for its typical Quercy architecture and Romanesque priory. Further Romanesque art at the Saint Pierre church in Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.

Perhaps the most famous of the Dordogne tourist attractions are the cave paintings around Les Eyzies. There are more pre-historic caves in this area than you could ever visit in a day! Les Eyzies lies at the heart of an unspoilt area of great natural beauty with rolling hills, tranquil rivers and fascinating cliff and rock formations. It has some of the world's most beautiful caves with outstanding stalactite and stalagmite crystallizations. And the cave-lined Vézère valley has been classified as a heritage site by UNESCO. The most well-known of all is the cave at Lascaux which was discovered in 1940. The paintings date back some 17,000 years.

Reviews

« We all had a wonderful time and the house was perfect as well as the weather. On behalf of my family we would like to thank you for sorting our holiday out for us and answering any questions we had very quickly and professionally. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pure France to other people and will probably be booking somewhere else with you next year. »  G Denham, UK

« We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maison Baudy - it was a lovely property in a peaceful location. We will certainly be using Pure France again. »  Lindsay Topley - UK
