About the property

Farmhouse in Minzac, Aquitaine, France - Peaceful Location But Within Easy Driving Distance Of Major Towns And Cities

Maison de la Ferme is a renovated farmhouse in a quiet and peaceful location with spacious living accommodation comprising of entrance hall, pool/sitting room, dining room and kitchen on the first floor; stairs lead up to a landing off which are 4 en-suite bedrooms. The private swimming pool is situated in a lawned and rose trellised garden. The historic and tranquil hill-top village of Villefranche de Lonchat is just 4 kms away with its two churches, museum, well stocked village shop, baker, chemist, two bars, a restaurant and a small hotel. It overlooks the less tranquil Lac de Gurcon - here one can swim from a sandy beach, hire a pedalo, play tennis, trampoline and visit several bars and restaurants. Other places locally to visit include St Emilion, Bergerac, Castillon La Bataille, Montpon-Menesterol and Ste Foy La Grande. Also the great centres of Bordeaux and Perigueux can both be reached within the hour.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thanks v much for your speedy response. Our friends - the Davison Smiths have recommended you highly - I believe that they are returning later this month for the 3rd time. We would like to book the dates you have available (11th to 25th June) please & will send the booking form and deposit cheque to you as required. Can you please tell me which would be the nearest ferry port & also airport as one couple may fly over and just stay for one week so we would have to pick them up.
