Charming Comfortable Manor House With A Lovely Friendly Atmosphere nr a village



Updated: 19-Oct-2016
excellent accommodation for 6-14+people i up to 7 ensuite bedrooms on a sliding price scale mid and low season

This stunning house in it's peaceful country setting is the ideal place to unwind and relax and wish you lived here too! The lack of traffic on the wonderful country roads and the green lanes which link them made the region a delight for cyclists and walkers. Colourful vibrant markets are available in a different local town every day, including Castillonnes (2kms) on Tuesdays, which also offers a selection of restaurants, banks, supermarkets, a cinema, tennis courts and a new outdoor swimming pool. Venture farther afield and find medieval towns, beautiful rivers, vineyards, chateaux and grotto's.

About the Owner

My mother and I bought this lovely house in 2009 after living in Brittany for 2 years and we decided we loved France but wanted the sunnier climate of the south. We fell in love with this house and spent the first year renovating it and started doing chambre d'hote (b&b) now we still do chambre d'hote in the off seasons and let the house as a gite in the summer. We think we have cracked it!-we live in a wonderful place and are able to share it with others.

Just spent 10 days here it was great all we could have asked for.

With ten of us there was more than enough room,each room has its own bathroom.

The owners were very helpful and knew all about the local area.

The house was tidy and had all the mod cons.

Perfect for us

Nearest Airport : Bergerac at 25 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Castiillonnes at 2 Kilometres Nearest Golf : at 18 Kilometres Nearest Train : Bergerac at 25 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Castillonnes at 2 Kilometres


There is a lovely lakeside beach only 7kms away with all facilities including pedalos and safe swimming.

Castillonnes is 2kms, Isseagac(A medieval town with a wonderful Sunday market) is 8 kms, Villereal is 12 kms, Bergerac is 25 kms, The beautiful chateau Monbazillac is 15 kms, Chateau Biron is 20kms, Villeneuve-sur-Lot is 32 kms, grotto's and Neanderthyal cave dwellings are an hour and a half and Bordeaux is 2 hours. The world famous vineyards and town of St Emilion are an hour and half.

Further Details:

This unique area of France in the Lot and Garonne on the edge of the Dordogne provides beautiful varied countryside from vineyards and nut and plum orchards to steeply wooded hillsides with amazing medieval villages perched on them and rivers meandering below. There is a marvellous selection of restaurants to suit all tastes with the emphasis on good local produce and delicious wines. The nearby lake is a great favourite with locals and tourists alike for a day in the sun and a swim. Other activities include kyaking on many of the rivers, fishing, horse riding, golf, hot air ballooning, karting, cycling, walking and tennis. The Traditional markets are always popular and in the high season the evening markets make a great night out. You can wine taste at alot of the vineyards round about and of course the big chateaux. The climate here is excellent with an early spring(often 25°in march) a long warm summer(in the 30°'s) and gentle autumn(we are still eating outside in October). Possibly because of the climate the lifestyle is very relaxed and everyone is friendly and helpful.

From the Owner

We are very lucky here to have the peace and quiet of the countyside and have a thriving market town only 2kms (20 min walk) away with all day to day needs and a multitude of other lovely interesting towns and villages surrounding us. We are also lucky in that the main N21 route is only the other side of Castillonnes out of sight and sound but very accesible so for instance Bergerac with it's airport and stunning river setting are only an easy 20-25 min drive.
