Description

Saltre Grande Two Double Bedrooms

Saltre Grande is the principal property on the 16 acres of private land. Built around 8 years ago, having been designed by a local architect with the emphasis on quality, space, light and maximizing the stunning views from the property, the house has exposed roof beams, double height ceilings and multiple large glass doors to expose the amazing position of the house. Although only two bedrooms the scale of the house is very large and the open-plan design of the kitchen means you never feel cut off from the rest of the space and everyone else. Every window frames an incredible view. The materials used throughout are of very high quality, the stone walls are super thick which means coolness in summer, warmth in winter. The two terraces offer two more dining spaces and depending on your mood,' intimacy' or 'vast space' can be achieved. Thanks to local farming we have been surrounded many times by acres of sun flowers which provide a back drop like no other to this gorgeous spot.


About the property

FR6179

Saltre, an old fruit farm comprising around 16 acres, sits on top of a hill in the beautiful farming countryside of the Lot et Garonne with panoramic views across this outstandingly beautiful part of France. We have the main house - Saltre Grande - which sleeps 4 in two beautiful bedrooms, a grand and impressive property which was designed by a local architect. Saltre Grande was built on the footprint of one of the oldest properties in the area - the site taking full advantage of the incredible, far-reaching views. This is a unique opportunity to stay in a rather 'grand' property on a more intimate basis - summer months only. Many homes have the reception rooms which wow but offer 5 plus bedrooms - Saltre Grande, with two bedrooms, gives you that space and wow factor without multiple bedrooms and increased costs. However, if you do need more bedrooms, just 50 m away is a pretty, old stone cottage - Saltre Petite - which has been fully refurbished and modernised and is available as add-on accommodation to Saltre Grande which takes the accommodation to 4 bedrooms - 2 in each property. NOTE If you choose Saltre Grande only, Saltre Petite will remain empty for the duration of your stay. The Pool Barn - an old cow barn which has had the roof removed, the walls lowered and a violet-coloured pool inserted to grand effect, sits between the two houses offering a good degree of separation. The whole 16 acre property is for your exclusive use so provides utter privacy. This is a real 'get-away-from-it-all' property. Saltre Petite offers two bedrooms, a pretty sitting room, a roomy kitchen and a separate dining area. There are also two terraces, one to west for those gorgeous sunsets and a spectacular view, the other directly outside the kitchen which makes an al fresco lunch or supper very easy. For those of you who are nature lovers we have an enormous list of wildlife spotted on our land from deer to wild hogs - from hares to the amazing winged predators; various kites, owls and hawks. The double-height kitchen/dining area of the main house with a walk-around open fire leads to the dramatic sitting room with exposed beams. This house, of high quality and design, is brand new (a local architect was charged with the brief to provide a beautiful home on a grand scale ensuring the property 'sits well' in the ancient surroundings. The interior may be modern but the exterior is in keeping with more traditional local properties. There are two terraces - one to the east overlooking the well - ideal for breakfast or early morning coffee, the other, to the west - ideal for sun downers, lunch or supper. Saltre was built as a refuge away from the high-octane lifestyle from which many of us need stress-relief and literally wraps her arms around guests cocooning them. It makes for a very hard place to leave! The head-turning 12m x 6m violet swimming pool enjoys the outstanding views from the intimacy of the old cow barn. Saltre is approached via a long drive through private woods and offers privacy and peace like no other. Monflanquin village, one of France's prettiest, is 8km away and the lively town of Villeneuve sur Lot, 11km. Local attractions include Chateaux, wine tasting, brocantes, lively markets, picturesque stone villages and delicious local restaurants. For children there is the Parc au Ciel (tree-swinging, canopy walking) and up-market go-cart rental nearby. The rivers Lot (10 mins), Dordogne (30 mins) have boat hire/picnics/swimming and there is golf, horse-riding and tennis courts available within 15 min drive. Saltre has magnificent views towards the beautiful 12 Century bastide village of Monflanquin - one of the 'prettiest villages in France' with its weekly market (going since the 12 century), shops and restaurants. For much of the farm land sun flowers are the crop of choice many years and to see these bright and happy flowers stretching in vast numbers to the horizon is a truly magnificent sight.

The Lot et Garonne is a beautiful area of France comprising of mainly rolling farmland and wineries, many of which are world-renown. With the Bastide villages, many of which make France's 'best vilage' list and a multitude of good, reasonably-priced restaurants this area ticks the box in so many ways to offer a relaxed, unhurried and beautiful holiday.

PLEASE NOTE Saltre Grande is available to rent for part of the year only - beginning May to end Oct. Saltre Petite however (sleeps 4) is available throughout the year for rental so any prices quoted outside of the summer season are for the Saltre Petite ONLY. This includes Christmas. SPECIAL OFFER - for the week of the 26th August, Saltre Petite (sleeps 4) is available at a huge discount - £500 for the entire week, all cleaning etc., inclusive. This is the perfect cosy, rural hideaway for 2 or 4 people (two beds, one double the other, two singles) and offers a warming real fire, very effective heating and an opportunity to explore this gorgeous region without many visitors around.

About jennifer solomons

We currently live on the island of Penang, Malaysia having moved from Europe some 8 years ago. Neil is a surgeon at a busy hospital here and I'm at home with our three gorgeous dogs. The island is wonderful and we have both enjoyed the huge change to our lives by coming here. However, we do sometimes find the distance between us and our families hard to deal with at times. Living so far away also means our visits to Saltre are few and far between, sadly. We always meet up with our family, who live in Europe, and this is when having the two properties at Saltre is just perfect. We use Saltre Petite as a guest cottage but always arrange meals, socialising etc., at Saltre Grande. This system works so well as it gives everyone a chance to have time alone and is particularly useful with small grandchildren or if there are teenagers around!. I don't think we really appreciated how useful splitting the accommodation would be - and we know many of our guests delight in having late night or early morning privacy. Having a terrace at Saltre Petite means a very late night brandy under the stars doesn't intrude on anyone else or perhaps taking a very early morning swim is possible without worrying about waking up the whole house ... One day it would be wonderful to think we might retire to Saltre as having such a beautiful home but rarely using it does seem a little crazy. Once we're at the house time seems to disappear so fast and what seemed like a long holiday ahead evaporates into setting off on the return journey to S E Asia far too quickly. We built a beautiful home here in France and still pinch ourselves that it is really ours. The blood, sweat and tears (not to mention fast-disappearing funds!) is soon forgotten when we drive up through the woods and see our wonderful French home.

Please note Saltre Grande is available for rentals from beginning May to end Oct only. Prices quoted for rentals outside of these months is for Saltre Petite ONLY.

jennifer solomons purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why jennifer solomons chose Savignac-sur-Leyze

We first visited the area when my parents bought a house close to Saltre around 30 years ago. We fell in love with it then and had always kept an eye on properties in the area as it is a perfect sanctuary for pure-escape holidays. We bought Saltre in a moment of madness (thank goodness!) as we were blown away by the peace of it all and mostly because of the magnificent views - being a hilltop property the views are simply outstanding. We built the swimming pool in 2004 and enjoyed many holidays using the cottage - Saltre Petite - but have, most recently, just completed the building of our main house - Saltre Grande which was our dream project. The area around Saltre is so beautiful - farmland with a few stone houses and stunning fields of sunflowers, crops and orchards. The Bastide 12th Century village of Monflanquin is picture-perfect and we love to have dinner in the Square and visiting the weekly market which has been going since the 12th Century! There's lots to do in the local area including exploring, river activities, horse riding and of course, eating! This area is where many of the French themselves choose to holiday mainly due to the beauty of the area but also due to the fabulous local produce.

Much of our holiday is spent lazing at the pool or simply enjoying the peace and privacy of such a large property but we also love to explore the area. We have taken many day trips to places like the wine lands of Bordeaux and the impressive coast line at Arcachon. There is something for everyone in this beautiful part of France and we feel lucky to have a home here. The beauty of well-cared for and loved land is obvious and if you're lucky enough to be in residence during the harvests Lot et Garonne is particularly interesting. We love to shop at the markets and often buy supplies during the day with a everyone-joins-in cook in the evening. A glass (or 3!) of wine before supper sitting on the terrace at Saltre is still one of our favourite things to do

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The beauty of Saltre has always been the peace, the privacy and the beauty of the land The property is an old plum farm and sits on top of a hill so enjoys beautiful views and wonderful sunsets. Building Saltre Grande has been hard work with hiccups along the way but the results speak for themselves. Spending time at Saltre is the perfect antidote to modern living: peaceful, relaxed, with a high degree of privacy which, for us, is an essential. Saltre Petite is simple, friendly and uncomplicated - perfect for our guests and is available for you as add-on accommodation only - it will remain empty if you just choose Saltre Grande . The stone pool barn works very well and is an ideal place to laze the day away and enjoy long, relaxed lunches with amazing views over the countryside. A unique point about Saltre and one of the reasons we bought the property is the two-home accommodation available to those who require it. We always enjoy having guests stay with us and having this separate accommodation means both parties can relax and perhaps have a lie-in one morning or a late night drink on the terrace without disturbing anyone else. This makes it perfect as a two-family rental or, as we do, separate accommodation for either those with babies - no 3 am wake-ups for us! or with teenagers in the group - that little bit of distance works wonders on inter-generational relationships!

Most of our land is simply 'empty' - just fields which surround the house - but we also have trees, old vines and lawns. Many of the old fruit trees from the farm days are still going strong and producing fruit so feel free to help yourself if you come across any.

PLEASE NOTE - Saltre Grande is only available to rent during the summer season - beg May to end Oct. All prices quoted outside of these dates are for the Saltre Petite ONLY (sleeps 4). Saltre Petite is also available at a huge discount for the week of the 26th August, 2017 at £500.00 fully inclusive (more than 40% saving)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Saltre was marvelous ! It was a complete difference from our city life here in Den Haag.

It was so peaceful, no sounds, only the birds. At night it was complete dark and silent. In the morning we saw the deer in the fields.

We took some prunes from the trees for breakfast, they were so nice and sweet.

The house was perfect ! The kitchen was a gem ! We love to cook ( I have my own cooking school, I’m always in the mood for cooking :-)

We baked a delicious prune cake, with prunes from the garden.

Sam was the happiest...... I think he felt like the king of Saltre. He brought us apples and pears form the garden every day. If he could decide he would love to stay in the garden the whole day.

We have visited many attractions nearby, castles, the Koki factory, local markets, we rented a boat to sail the Lot.

So yeah, life was perfect at Saltre and thank you for renting it out !

Further Details:

Monflanquin (8 kms) is the nearest village for a variety of family-owned/run restaurants offering many local specialities (the duck is divine!), elegant, complex dishes, menu compris (great value) and good quality pizzas/pasta dishes. There is a local wine co-operative just outside the village where various wines are available (no Grand Crus however!) made from local grapes including a delicious, light rose, fruity reds and, our favourite, a dry white. A couple of these wines have recently been awarded gold stars in Paris which has delighted the producers and makes their very reasonable prices seem even more so. The 12 Century village square of Monflanquin provides a home for the weekly outdoor market where vats of olives sit side by side wheels of cheese, buckets of flowers parade next to pots of locally produced honey. There are also a couple of bars, speciality shops, a large and well-stocked supermarket, tourist info and banks together with a small grocery store and a florists The village is a wonderful place to spend the famous Quatorze Juilllet (Juy 14th - Bastille Day) as the bunting comes out and the village celebrates with open-air eating, dancing and fireworks. The Medieval Fair appears each August as the village turns back the clock and celebrates its impressive history.

Villeneuve-sur-Lot (11 kms) is a much larger town with many more restaurants, a cinema, twice-weekly market, and multiple shops.

For children/young adults there is a Parc au Ciel (park in the sky) which offers canopy walking, tree-swinging together with picnicking. The two nearest rivers, the Lot and the Dordogne are a short drive away and offer canoe hire, boating, swimming and again beautiful picnic areas. There is an excellent, very professional go-kart track within a 30 minute drive which is hugely popular with all the boys in our family. Prices are reasonable and the karts are impressive.

This area is choc-a-bloc with pretty villages and town which are all well worth exploring. Many hold bric a brac sales during the summer period and of course the famous marche-nocturnes (night food markets) are very popular. We always visit the one in Villereal as it offers such a pretty setting with delicious, home-produced dishes together with plenty of wine available and even music for dancing.

Our favourite restaurants in the area include La Jardin and Le Prince Noir in Monflanquin and Le Moulin de Dausse in the village of Dausse which offers stunning, original and exciting food for a very reasonable price. For fabulous value try the restaurant at Lassou - 4 (on Sunday's it's 5) courses of delicious, home-cooked food under 14 euros p person (inc wine). Further suggestions will be found in our Visitor's Info book in the house.

Notes:
Saltre Grande, built 8 years ago on the footprint of the original farmhouse, was designed by a local architect briefed to provide a 'wow' factor whilst designing a home. The house provides comfortable, light and airy accommodation. High quality materials were used throughout the build with emphasis on the interior design - traditional from the outside in keeping with the local area, boasts high ceilings with a multitude of windows to provide a calm, spacious and modern interior whilst honouring its beautiful surroundings of farms and fields. We also have a fully refurbished old stone cottage at Saltre, Saltre Petite, ideal for extra guests/older children, providing a dbl bedroom, a twin bedded bedroom together with two modern shower rooms, a well fitted, bright kitchen and a cosy sitting room. Available for rental in conjunction with Saltre Grande ONLY; ideal for two family rental - the pool sits between the two houses with separate access to it from each. Saltre Petite is suitable for wheelchair users and for those who struggle with steps There are 16 acres of completely private land. Saltre was a plum farm and is thought to be the oldest farm in the hamlet of Savignac-sur-Leyze. There are lawns, fields, orchards and vines. This area is known for sunflower growing together with plums which become the 'prunes of Agen' (to be found world- wide as we have discovered!) The architect-designed, violet-coloured pool (12m x 6m) with a large sun terrace has been set in an old stone barn (roof removed, walls lowered) and enjoys the same impressive views over the countryside as Saltre Grande and Petite. There are sunbeds provided. PLEASE NOTE: THE POOL IS OF ONE DEPTH ONLY (1.5 M) NO 'SHALLOW' END. You are welcome to walk and enjoy the whole property - it is for your sole use. There are farm tracks only (no fencing) between us and our neighbours and there are rambling walks in the area. We do not live at the property so, apart from maintenance visits, Saltre is completely private - heavenly!

Happy Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What a find Saltre was! We were looking for a place to ourselves to chill out and enjoy the weather. We certainly found a gem here. Gorgeous house with everything you could need away from home and what a beautiful pool! Stunning views which ever way you look. As we were lucky with the weather most days we didn't stray far from the pool but when it wasn't sunny the nearby villages and towns were a great way to spend our time. The owners couldn't be more helpful with their emails to answer questions and give excellent advice for things to do. We have already recommended Saltre to friends back home and would certainly consider returning ourselves. Thank you to Jennifer for sharing her beautiful home!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Saltre is a true gem, hidden away at the top of a hill, surrounded by stunning French countryside with views to still the busiest of minds. The main house is stunning in design and decor; thoughtfully planned and presented to the highest of standards. The view from the bath next to the main bedroom is breathtaking.

We rented the main house and the cottage which worked perfectly for us. Even with 5 teenagers, the lack of Wi-Fi was liberating. The children got an occasional Wi-Fi fix outside the 'Office de Tourisme' in Monflanquin but the stillness and the peace of Saltre refreshed all of our souls.

It is hard to find the words to describe the beauty and tranquility of Saltre but perhaps our favourite part was the pool barn; exquisitely built in the ruin of an old barn with views over the fields. We have memories to last us until we visit again next year. The only mistake we made was booking for one week and not two!

Jennifer sent me everything I needed to know before we left. The house, cottage and pool were spotless.

We ate local produce at the nocturnal markets in Salles and Monflanquin which were both superb. The Casino supermarket in Monflanquin is open on Sunday mornings until midday. We rented a car from Bergerac Airport which was hassle-free. This is true France where everything shuts down for several hours over lunch so plan ahead for food on your day of arrival.

Most visitors seem to go back year after year which is a true reflection of the beauty of this property.

Fantastic holiday in a fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing two weeks' holiday in and around the Saltre property. The region (Lot et Garonne) is beautiful, this is unspoilt South West France, full of pretty little old villages, full of restaurants with wonderful food. The house, its pool, the views from the house, the surroundings, all these are absolutely stunning - luxury, class, calmth, charm, privacy...an immediate feeling of overall well-being. We need to say a word about the owner of the property, Jennifer: she is the perfect (long-distance) host, so easy to communicate with - thank you Jennifer. For a perfect, relaxing and battery-recharging holiday: highly recommended, 6 stars.

Frank and Lut.

An outstanding property - WOW!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week in Saltre - our third time! It is an extraordinarily comfortable house in which to relax in and to explore the beautiful Lot region. The pool just has to be seen to be believed and the house is very well equipped and set upon a hill with stunning views! The land around the house provided a great exploring opportunity for our kids and they adored spotting all the wildlife.

I cannot recommend Saltre highly enough - the owners are incredibly helpful and friendly and we simply LOVE Saltre! We hope to return one day!
