Overview

About the property

2 luxury gîtes each sleeping 4-5 (max 6) persons with views & riverside terrace

Luxury holiday cottage rated by Gîtes de France as 4 épis ("stars"). Fully equipped with free secure private parking (garaged for motorcycles). Each cottage has two bedrooms; stylish bathroom and spacious lounge diner plus outside terrace with BarBQ. Beautiful spring water infinity pool for guests with shaded sun terrace. And, within a few steps of your gîte or the swimming pool, superb fishing from our private pontoons plus; plus mooring for small boats. Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout. Supermarket 300 metres. The Lot et Garonne department is the garden of France with fresh fruit and vegetables grown throughout. Famous for plums and prunes, Lot et Garonne is where the French come on holiday; it's a real and authentic area which has all the charm and attractions for visitors and yet is not "touristy". Having said that, the popular attractions in the Dordogne are just 35 minutes away. The river Lot is a large and impressive river, which although popular for boating and fishing, is still unspoilt. You can hire a boat and spend hours without seeing other boats! It's quiet and peaceful and yet Clairac is within 300 meters of local shops and within 10 minutes of a hypermarket in Tonneins. All in all, it's the perfect family holiday. However, don't take our word for it; read some of our reviews!

N.B. PLEASE ENQUIRE FOR AVAILABILITY AS WE HAVE TWO GÎTES.

ONLY IF BOTH ARE BOOKED WILL THE DATES BE BLOCKED ON THIS SITE

About John and Chrissie Stephen

Following a busy career in banking and project management with frequent international travel, John decided that he would love to follow his dream of settling in southern France on the banks of a beautiful river. After many years living in sunny Cyprus, Chrissie didn't need much encouragement to make the move! Their joint interest in welcoming and meeting people made the gîte opportunity the perfect choice; especially as Chrissie has worked in hospitality and marketing for many years.

John and Chrissie Stephen purchased this cottage in 2015

Why John and Chrissie Stephen chose Lot-et-Garonne

After a number of years of searching for the perfect home on a riverbank, they fell in love with the river Lot and discovered the rustic charm of Les Séchoirs with offers the fun of fishing, boating, swimming for much of the year bit also enjoying the roaring open fire during the brief winter months.

Once a large tobacco growing area, the two large drying barns (Séchoirs) in the garden are similar to many in the locality. Today however, the area today is well known for its fruit production which includes strawberries, kiwi fruit, apples, pears and the best known of all .... it's plums - les pruneaux d'Agen.

To the north and west of the Lot river valley, are the vineyards of Bordeaux and Bergereac with the Dordogne region on our doorstep. Northern Spain and the Pyrenees are just a few hours drive away...

What makes this cottage unique

It is easy to fall in love with Les Séchoirs! The history of the beautifully renovated cottages and tobacco barns that stand on the banks the river Lot, its spacious gardens and fishing pontoons and stunning infinity pool and its close proximity to the Clairac with its weekly market, river beach, restaurants and coffee shops...or maybe it's just the joy of relaxing with a glass of local wine on the riverbank terrace watching the sun set...

Notes:
The river Lot is a beautiful river in its own right but, for fishermen, it is a wonderful experience because large fish abound; carp to 60lbs with huge pike and catfish. Either fish from the fishing pontoons at Les Séchoirs or take a fishing boat upstream. Horse riding stables are close to the village as are cycling paths and hiking trails (Grande Randonnées).
