About Antony and Karen

We have lived and worked in London for many years in the financial sector. Some time ago we decided that we would like to enjoy a slower pace of life, so we had the idea of running our own gite complex in France. After a long search we found this beautiful property and we are now living here at Domaine Les Pruniers and we couldn't be happier!

Antony and Karen purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Antony and Karen chose Montastruc

We have visited SW France many times over the years, initially the Dordogne area and the Atlantic coast. A few years ago we discovered the Lot et Garonne and fell in love with its tranquility and sublime natural beauty and also for its wide variety of lively bastide towns and villages, markets, chateaux and vineyards. We decided that we would like to live here and when we found this property our dream came true. For keen golfers there is an attractive 9 hole par 38 course in Tombeboeuf which is only 5km from us, with club and buggy hire available. There is also a highly recommended 18 hole golf course at Villeneuve-sur-Lot, which is about 25km away.There are many gentle walks and hikes within easy reach and there are also many cycle paths, we are close to both the Route Vert and the Velo Route. Les Pruniers is very close to the Lot river and it is a just a short drive to the many towns dotted along the banks offering water activities such as kayaking and canoeing.

Beautiful place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for two weeks at the start of our summer hols. Incredibly relaxing place to recharge our batteries.

Our two children loved it and soon made friends with the other children who were staying in the other gites.

We had a one bedroom apartment and our children shared the sofa bed which they said was very comfy and easy to set up.

Kitchen had everything we needed and the bedroom was lovely with a super comfy bed.

The balcony area was fantastic, it's large and has a big table for dining. We also got to see two baby doves make their first flight as they were nesting in the roof.

The outdoor area is brilliant, loads of space to run around and play in. The pool however was the place to be. Large enough for lengths and shallow enough at one for smaller children whilst deep at the other. My daughter learnt to swim in it and was soon doing lengths!

Beautiful pool to chill by and read on their comfy loungers. Also spotted numerous lizards and hummingbird moths.

The hot tub for adult use only was fantastic and we used it a lot in the evenings.

There was a pool table, table tennis table and table football in the under cover barn. We spent many hours playing there.

Such a fabulous holiday I don't think I have relaxed so much in years, I even caught myself cloud watching!

Anthony and Karen are very friendly and put up with my daughter asking them lots of questions, particularly about lounge pants and going out!

Will definitely go back, but am dragging the rest of my family there too!

Thanks Karen and Anthony, we loved it.

Les Pruniers is located in the beautiful Lot et Garonne department of SW France, within a few minutes of the South Dordogne borders. It is often referred to as the Tuscany of France, with its topography of sunflower fields, medieval villages and gently rolling countryside. One of the "best kept secrets" in France the department is named after the two rivers which cross it, the Lot and the Garonne. We are located within easy reach of many small towns located along the banks of these rivers, offering bathing and boating activities, such as canoeing and kayaking. Cycling is also a popular pastime and we are close to the well known Route Vert, which is an off-road cycling route running for many kilometres through the countryside. There are many lovely bastide towns within very easy driving distance from Les Pruniers, you can visit places such as Agen, Duras, Pujols,Villeneuve-sur-Lot, Castlliones, Miramont, Villereal, Eymet, Monflanquin, Monpazier and many more. If you want to venture a little further afield, within 1 to 1.5 hours drive from us you can visit the well known tourist destinations of the Southern and Central Dordogne.
