About the Owner

Gary and Mick bought the property in February 2015, from the previous owners who renovated the properties from 2000 over the next few years. We live in the main house, a converted barn, so are available for help and information if you need, but will completely respect your privacy and enjoyment of your holiday.

We have been carrying out a series of improvements to the properties, including a new pool liner and other upgrades to improve your experience.

Fon du Bourg Euro's Special

  • 5 of 5

Fon Du Bourg is set in the heart of rural Bergerac with sweeping generous lawns and landscaped vistas.

The venue is stunning, nestled to the south of Bergerac, one can enjoy peace and quiet with brilliant views from the top pool (Fon du Bourg has 3 by the way).

I stayed in the Farmhouse which was well appointed with a comfortable bed, spacious rooms, multiple BBQ's which were ideal for the blistering hot weather we experienced and sky television - perfect for watching the Euro's football on!

Gary and Mick our host's were extremely welcoming and friendly throughout our stay and they have a wonderful dog called Alfie and kitten called Socks who are simply delightful to be around!

I certainly can't complain about the price either which was very competitive.

Overall, I would be very happy to stay there again and would highly recommend to anybody.

All you want from a French holiday in the sun.

  • 5 of 5

Attracted by the advertising photo and we were not dissapointed. 6 adults,2 children(7 and 9) + one 20 month old and 2 friends from Brittany,looking for the sun, walked in and began a lovely holiday from the start. The farmhouse and Chai were both roomy and light and gave us all the amenities we wanted. Our host , Gary, was welcoming and helpful throughout the 2 weeks and his visiting granddaughters were a delight. Golfing at Villaneuve, canoeing on the Garronde, fishing for carp in a local lake and local markets of course all our interests were catered for. The large pool deserves an individual mention providing a private and continuous source of fun and relaxation. Regarding local visits our favorite 'bastide' of Monpazier (we could sit in the square all day) and Chateax Biron, the massive proportions were breathtaking. altogether a wonderful 2 weeks, absolutely recommended.

A wonderful week…

  • 5 of 5

A spacious farmhouse in the middle of nowhere with beautiful views over the countryside. Fab pool and plenty of varied areas for eating outside in the evening. Nearby you've got the gorgeous Castillonnes and Eymet with their wonderful markets and a real bonus for families is the lake 9k away at Lougratte. Mick and Gary are unobtrusive yet endlessly helpful hosts. Highly recommended!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, the farmhouse and Chai were both amazing and very well equipped. The pool was heaven and we made good use of it every day! The owners Gary and Mick were so accommodating, they even moved a single bed into the other bedroom so that all the boys in our party could sleep in the same room, nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend staying here and we hope to return in the future.

Lovely place, fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the farmhouse and chai for two weeks. Our friends stayed with their family (2 adults, children of 6, 4 and twins of 1 year old) in the farmhouse. We stayed with our family (2 adults, twins of 6 and one of 2 years old) in the chai. It is nice to spent a holiday apart but also together. The properties are very spacious, well equiped and have many extra's for children (children chairs, gate on the stairs, plastic plates, ...). Nice and very spacious pool with also a nice water depth for the children. The different terraces give you the opportunity to enjoy the morning or evening sun or choose for the shadow at noon.

Keven is the perfect host. He is available when you need him, but he stays at the background not disturbing your privacy. Our friends had a problem with the heating of the warm water. Keven called the plumbers the same day and the next day everything was repaired.

Nice to know is that the supermarket in Castillonnes is open on Saturday until 18h and is also open on Sunday morning.

We visited the market in Castillonnes on Tuesday (nice), Château de Bridoire (fantastic for the children), Bergerac, Issigeac (mediaval village - bwah, not that impressive), a daytrip to Jacquou Parc (fantastic, not that expensive) and Château de Biron (interesting for adults, children a bit bored after 30 min. ;-))

Despite the changeable weather this summer in France, we had a fantastic holiday at Fon du Bourg. We can recommend this place!

Meaby small remarks for Keven: a little sign of 'Fon du Bourg' at the entrance of Douzains and at the entrance of the domain and some of atmospheric lighting on the terrace of the farmhouse ;-) ;-)

Most peaceful place ever

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous gem in the country is the most peaceful and quite place I've ever been to, the silence is almost tangible. The Chai cottage is everything you expect but much bigger than it appear in the photos, its very spacious and cool which is great on a hot summers day with a massive pool only a leap up the bank with fabulously comfy sun loungers where we spent most of our time.The cluster of 4 cottages is set in a beautifully maintained garden and orchard of peaches and nectarines covered in delicious fruit. The village is very small with only a handful of houses and virtually no traffic. The nearest shop is about a 15 minute car drive and the Sunday market in Issigeac is an absolute must for fresh local produce. Keven is on hand practically 24/7, he is also a great company and is very generous (on arrival we missed the grocery shop and had literally no provisions, Keven very kindly filled up our fridge to get us through the weekend including some lovely wine) and very kindly offered his terrace for when we wanted to use the wifi. There is also a table tennis, brilliant on a not so sunny days. The village is very easy to find and getting around generally is very easy due to the low volume of traffic unless you get the odd overzealous local driving up your jacksy that is. The location is ideal, there is a lot to do and a lot to see but also its very easy just stay by the pool and do nothing as its extremely comfortable and beautifully set. We'd love to come back again soon. Thank you Keven for being so easy and helpful.
