Overview

About the property

3 bedroom private gite, private pool and free wifi, lots of extras, not far from the local markets, and the local airport 30 mins away.

Artfully decorated and well equipped for budding chefs, active children and chilled grown-ups, this pretty 3 bedroom cottage nestles in rolling countryside, a gentle ride from the magnificent Dordogne river and a short walk from the hill top village of Castillionnes, with its restaurants, bars, and bustling weekly market.

Easy to find, only 20 minutes from Bergerac airport and 90 minutes from Bordeaux, it’s a cosy home from home offering a peaceful holiday with a private pool, swings and a trampoline in the garden, and a sun drenched terrace surrounded by lavender and lovely views. The perfect place to unwind with a glass of chilled rose after a day kayaking on the river, horse-riding, or even donkey trekking!

Should you manage to tear yourself away from the view, the pool, and that glass of wine, we have lots to occupy the whole family, tennis courts and a large public swimming pool a short walk away, a great sandy beach at Lougratte lake just 15 minutes drive away. The wonderfully preserved medieval villages of Issigeac, Eymet and Villereal are equally near-by and the gorgeous hilltop Bastide villages of Monpazier and Monflanquin, both with 30 minutes drive.

The Cottage: With all modern facilities, sleeps 6, it has 3 comfortable bedrooms, 1 double with an ensuite and 2 twin rooms (we are happy to change the double to a twin or a twin to a double upon request) a good sized family bathroom, an open plan living area with comfy sofas, tv and dvd player, a fully equipped kitchen including a large fridge freezer for all those cold drinks and tasty snacks, a gas cooker, a dishwasher (tablets provided), toaster, microwave, espresso machine and even an ice-cream maker.

A welcome pack is provided which includes tea, coffee, sugar, pasta, salt and pepper, cheese and a selection of vegetables from our own garden.

For lovely lazy outdoor eating, we provide a BBQ, complete with charcoal, firelighters and matches for a hassle free start to your holiday. The terrace is well equipped with tables and chairs for alfresco dining or you can lounge in comfort under the trees on our outdoor sofa and chairs.

For comfort and safety the pool has an easy to use cover for extra heat on a cloudy day and is securely fenced with a lockable gate, peace of mind if you have adventurous children. Pool towels are provided free of charge, to save space in your bags.

like to provide you with extras so you dont need to worry about the little things, eg dishwasher tablets, washing powder, we love the gite as if it was a home not just a place for you to stay and sleep, we want you to relax and just unwind from the stress of your normal home life.

children or any age will enjoy staying, there is a trampoline, tennis table, dvd's and free wifi !!!!!!!!!!!!!

but best of all a private pool, suitable for young and older children and adults, to play relax, it as a cover to keep the sun off in the heat of the day, and can be closed to protect from the rain if it come when you stay!!!! (fingers crossed it stays away)

its near to the local airport of Bergerac, 25 mins approx,

there is a number of markets to visit, and wine caves to visit when you need to pull yourself away from the pool !!!!

all in all a great place to stay

p.s the reviews say it all !!!!!!!!

The gite is also available to rent for couples only( price for 1 bedroom available )

to May 2017

A perfect gite for a young family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this lovely gite with our 2 children (5 and 7). Charmaine met us on arrival where we received an amazing welcome hamper which was much appreciated by all!

The gite was extremely well equipped with everything we needed. Outside there is plenty to keep the kids entertained - swimming pool, table tennis, trampoline, swings and even a den full of toys.

We enjoyed evenings tasting local wines and bbqing on the terrace - surrounded by lavender and the sounds of crickets it was very relaxing.

We hired a car (which I'd recommend due to the out of town location) and we were in a great position to visit lots of local towns. We also hired bikes but be warned it is quite hilly nearby!

It was a relaxing week and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Charmaine is a fantastic host and goes out of her way to make sure everyone is happy - all the little details really make a difference. Thank you for having us. :)

A lovely house in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect, clean and enough space for the family to enjoy. With its own pool it's exactly as described. Charmaine, Sam and family were very welcoming and available should there be a problem, not that there were!

Perfectly peaceful, wonderful gite

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday has been perfect. The gite had everything we needed so we travelled light with hand luggage only. A fabulous welcome awaited us. The pool was perfect and the children had so much fun playing in it. Table tennis has become a new favourite game. The terrace was fabulous for eating meals together. The BBQ was well used. The memories of sitting on terrace drinking wine and chatting or drinking coffee in the early morning (before the children woke) listening to the birds will stay with me for ever. Charmaine and her family were brilliant. Catching up with my friend of 25 years was the icing on the cake x lovely gite x lovely family x lovely area for exploring x perfect holiday x thank you so much x we hope to be back soon xxx

Lovely relaxing time sitting on terrace with a rose and enjoying the pool.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Gite. Charmaine was there to greet us and show us how everything worked. Despite having lovely bastide towns close by to visit it was difficult to pull ourselves from the terrace and pool which is set in a lovely garden. The welcome basket was amazing. Wines, cheeses, coffe teas, milk, butter water, fruit juice, lots of nibble and biscuit, chocolates. Not forgetting the wonderful bowl of fresh hand picked cherries her daughter's had gathered. I m sure I have missed a lot out. It was great having the WiFi and Charmaine was always on call if you needed anything but never imposed. I broke my reading glasses and she very kindly lent a pair of her own for the duration of holiday. Lot et Garronne is a lovely area to explore. Canoeing on the Dordogne river. Horse riding near by. The restaurant's are wonderful. Role in next holidays.

Second time

  • 5 of 5

Another stay, another great time...Charmaine once again pulled out all the stops to make sure we had a stunning time. The usual welcome, spotlessly clean, bread on the counter, cheese and wine in the fridge! All very much needed after a days drive. The new addition of the kids play room in the garden was enjoyed by the kids throughout along with the pool, they also enjoyed harvesting the low-level grapes on the various vines.

Lots to do in the surrounding area, the kids love solving the challenges at Pirate Land as much as they do riding the amusements at Walabi to zip lining through the trees at Parc en Ceil.

And after doing all that, the chance to relax on the terrace looking up at the wonderful Bastide of Castillonnes - meat on the Weber, wine in the glass, kids happy in their room due to the speedy wifi

I love the place will be back again soon

Relaxing getaway - perfectly located.

  • 5 of 5

Charmaine welcomed us on arrival. Beds were made, the gite was spotless and she provided a wonderful welcoming hamper of food and drink. The gite is perfectly located for visiting Bergerac and all the beautiful Bastide towns - eg. Issigeac and Villereal. Castillones has a supermarket etc. and a few miles south is the lake at Lougratte which is a lovely setting for a swim and a picnic. The weather was exceptionally warm so the pool was well used! The gite is comfortable and well equipped and we would highly recommend it to anyone. We also found that there are fewer tourists at this time of year which made it easier for us to travel around and visit the area, yet all facilities were still available to us. We look forward to returning soon!
