About the property

Cottage in Les Croux, Monbazillac, Aquitaine / Dordogne, France - Gite Set In Spacious Grounds Leading To Vineyards. Secluded And Peaceful. Bergerac 10 Mins By Car

This stone built cottage consists of a large living room with a kitchen and dining area, one bedroom and a bathroom. It is attached to our traditional Perigordine farmhouse, but still maintains its independence. Situated on a plateau at the edge of the village of Monbazillac, it is an idyllic spot to sample the pleasures that the Dordogne has to offer and is conveniently located just 7 minutes from Bergerac airport. It has a lovely heated swimming pool (13m x 6m), shared with the owners, set below a rockery and not overlooked by the main house. One can walk through vines and woodland without leaving the property. The village of Monbazillac is quiet, dominated by its 16th century chateau and famous vineyards. Ten minutes away by car is the town of Bergerac, full of shops, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, and of course, the beautiful old town (complete with Cyrano statues) and riverside port. There are markets on most days in the bastide towns, and night markets in the summer for local outdoor eating and drinking.

About Martin

We moved here permanently in 2005, seeking a calmer lifestyle away from London.

Martin purchased this cottage in 1991

Why Martin chose Perigord Pourpre

The Dordogne area is already renowned for its gastronomic delights, especially the wine! We chose our house for its unique location - very close to Bergerac and its facilities, but at the same time completely secluded from neighbouring properties and roads.

What makes this cottage unique

We are perched on the Monbazillac plateau, hidden among our own vines. The most frequent comment we get from guests is the feeling of space all around the property. The pool is hidden from the main house and the gite, with a view over meadows leading to woods and vines.

Wat een heerlijke plek!

  • 5 of 5

We hebben het enorm naar onze zin gehad, niet in de laatste plaats door de hartelijke ontvangst door de eigenaar. De gite is van alle gemakken voorzien en het terrein, met het zwembad, is prachtig. We komen hier zeker terug!
