Overview

About the property

Tucked between the villages of Labretonie and Saint-Barthélemy-d'Agenais is a beautifully restored 19th Century French Farmhouse. La Cachette is a 4-bedroomed gîte with the most amazing terrace and beautiful countryside views. Large terrace doors open into a stunning open-plan main room (the Salle) which has a double height beamed ceiling and log-burner filled with sofas, large dining table and perfect for relaxing with the family. Leading off from the main room (the Salle) is another lounge (snug) with log-burner; a kitchen, utility room and breakfast room, all with exposed beams and stone walls. There is a rustic yet contemporary feel throughout the property, which remains cool in the summer sun and is centrally heated for winter. The large terrace also offers a combination of shade and sun for al fresco dining or relaxing under a Merlot vine. Shelves and toy boxes hold treats for the kids and a well-stocked wine rack will keep the adults happy. This perfect family-friendly gîte in one of the most beautiful regions of France is great for a family retreat, as all accommodation is on ground-floor.

The property comprises 4 bedrooms (King, Dbl, Twin, Kids on day bed) and additional sofa-bed in Salle sleeps up to 10 plus cots

About Lin and John Whitehead

We live in Norwich, England and have 2 boys - Archie and Harry - and one girl - Alice, both work full-time and love travelling to France for holidays as it is so easy to jump in the car.

Lin and John Whitehead purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why Lin and John Whitehead chose Saint-Barthélemy-d'Agenais

We saw this property in August 2015 when staying close by and within a week had decided to take out a French mortgage to buy it! Crazy but true - it's such an amazing house for big groups or extended families, with acres of space and the best views from the terrace. We love it and hope you love it too.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The property is totally enclosed and surrounded by lots of garden where the kids can play safely. The terrace is amazing for eating and sitting in the evening watching the pool or reading a book, and we are lucky that an English couple live down the road who manage the property for us, who are a wealth of information on the local area and very helpful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to drop a line to say...WOW! The Cachette and surrounding area are both stunning, and we've had a fantastic time with plenty of time still left. The weather has been incredible, and the pool much needed at times. The cycling is also some of the best I've ever experienced. Thank you ever so much again - it's been the perfect holiday so far!

Fantastic fantastic fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic two weeks at La Cachette. The house is massive and in a very peaceful location within easy reach of local amenities. River beaches are about twenty mins away and are a fantastic day out although you can have more than enough fun in the very inviting 28 degree pool. Kids toys are in abundance so they are well catered for whilst you can relax on the beautiful shaded terrace with a cheeky drink day or night. Highly recommend and will most certainly be returning.
