Location

The property is set in open countryside between Villereal (4 km) and Monflanquin (7 km).

All amenities including supermarket, shops, café bars and restaurants in Castillionnès, Villereal and Monflanquin.

Many open markets in the villages all around (Villeréal on Saturday, Castillonnès on Tuesday, Issigeac on Sunday, Monflanquin and Monpazier on Thursday).

Great swimming in the nearby lake in Lougratte. This lake has a small beach, pedalos, canoes etc and is very popular, with plenty of other children to keep everyone occupied... You can picnic on the grass or under the trees.

Other local towns include the beautiful medieval town of Issigeac, the Bastide towns of Eymet, Miramont-en-Guyenne, and the pretty town of Lauzun all with good restaurants and weekly farmers markets.

Bergerac is some 35 km North, and Villeneuve-sur-Lot 25 km to the South. Both these larger towns have good shopping facilities, superb restaurants and weekly street markets.

There are many places of historical interest well worth a visit. The local Bastide towns of Eymet, Monflanquin, Villeréal and the beautiful villages of Monpazier, Issigiac (with its medieval houses and bishop's palace), Pujols and Penne d'Agenais with its windy streets and church at the summit of the hill are all within easy drive.

These Bastide towns, so characteristic of the area were constructed as new towns in the 13th and 14th centuries, by both the English and the French when much of the area was English before and during the 100 years war.

The Dordogne River is very good for fishing, canoeing and other activities. There are also many local facilities for riding, golf, tennis and walking.

There are many interesting places to visit. The renowned prehistoric sites in the Eastern Dordogne, cave paintings at Lascaux, especially, La Roque Saint-Christophe and various old cave dwellings, and many other minor caves with wall paintings, etc. There are also the very pretty towns of Sarlat-la-Canéda, Domme set on top of a hill, Roque Gageac on a cliff beside the river.

Reviews

« I can say that we all agreed your house was the nicest we have stayed in for a holiday and we all really relaxed and enjoyed ourselves more than we had for ages. My daughter loved the mirrors and mannequin and my son the cowhides and Lord of the Rings figures. Charlie and I loved the privacy (the range cooker) and fact the kids were so happy.

So many thanks -  I hope we may be able to visit again. »  Williams family

« The property is beautiful - old and full of charm. We loved the eclectic decor and it's quirky feel. The bedrooms were a good size and the kitchen was the great. We had perfect weather so we were able to make the most of the pool and the gorgeous outside area. We never ran out of hot water and made use of the three bathrooms. The house keeper was only a phone call or text away and was very helpful and even booked a taxi for us. The location is great, tucked away at the end of a hamlet but only 10 mins from the nearest town and there are lots of others near by too. Overall we loved our stay. »  Farrow family

« The house was easy to find, following Andrew's detailed instructions and when he says it is just 10 mins drive from Villereal, it actually is a couple of minutes less! And there is no tortuously twisting lane or cliff-like drive to negotiate. Similarly the other lovely bastide towns of Monflanquin, Monpazier and Issigeac are all about 12 kms away and all are delightful. We visited some great local markets and we enjoyed the chance to watch outdoor Shakespeare and joined the locals for a really interesting evening at the trotting races. Its just as easy to lose money there as it is at the races in England. The house is spacious and interesting with lots of quirky vintage furniture and objet d'art. Plenty of room for six adults. There are plenty of books and there is a good wi-fi connection. The kitchen is lovely and spacious and the cupboards were stocked with those spices , oils and sugars that it is such a bother to have to go and buy for just one meal. Hopefully we also left some additional items for the next guests to appreciate. We enjoyed our time at the pool and made good use of the badminton racquets, but the shuttlecocks we bought locally proved pretty rubbish. The newly added porch at the back of the house was greatly appreciated as we had some very hot days during our stay. We had a lovely week and our grown up and married children and their partners also felt this was one of the best holiday houses we have shared. »  Martin S.

« We had a fabulous 2 weeks in this rustic house in the French countryside with a lovely pool. The house is located next to fields which are perfect for walks with or without your four legged friend and the pool is large for a 3 bedroom house. A few minutes drive to Villereal for the daily essentials or Monflanquin for the Casino supermarche »  Mark M.
