About the property

Farmhouse in Saint-Eutrope-de-Born, Villneuve-sur-Lot, Lot et Garonne, Aquitaine / Dordogne, France - 'Andante', A Taste Of Paradise In South West France

Andante is a recently renovated farm, dating back to 1850, set in 1,3 hectares (13,000sq.m) of land. The farm consists of 2 adjoining houses: a fully furnished and self contained gite that sleeps 4-8 and a second house that is used by the owner. Bed linen and towels are included. There is a private swimming pool on the property (5m x 10m) with great views of the surrounding countryside. Volleyball, badminton, jeu de boules and table tennis can be played on site. As guests of Andante you also have access to the local tennis court located next to the 'Mairie' in St. Vivien, which is just a couple of minutes away. If you enjoy a round of golf there is an excellent golf course (18 and 9 holes) in Castelnaud de Gratecombe, some 12kms from the property, and a 9-hole course in Tombeboeuf, 28kms from Andante.

About Richard Jongerius

They will do all in their reach to make a stay at Andante an enjoyable and memorable event.

Richard Jongerius purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Richard Jongerius chose Lot-et-Garonne

The 'joie de vivre' in France has always attracted us and now that we are retired we love to enjoy it to the full.

Andante marries a perfect surroundings, area of good food, historic villages with characteristic weekly open air markets in all villages around and generally great weather conditions.

The beauty of the surrounding countryside, the friendly locals, the splendour of the many picturesque medieval villages, the pace of life and the great weather have us hooked! The beauty of the area is that it is generally a few degrees warmer and less rain than you would find in the Dordogne.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Peace and quiet, living 'a la campagne' in a real French community.

The gite is very well equipped for a holiday home thus ensuring guests can relax and know all their basic needs are met. The size of the grounds and the pool make Andante the perfect place to bring children. The patio adjoining the gite is a favourite spot for long lazy lunches and evening barbecues. The house is only a 35 min. drive from Bergerac airport, 2 hours from Bordeaux or Toulouse while Limoges also offers easy access (1.5 - 2 hrs).

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Rural Bliss"

This is our second visit to Andante. We love it here because of the peace and quiet of the location. The pool is deliciously inviting and we have spent many happy hours playing table tennis and badminton in the extensive garden. Eating under the dappled shade of the vines is a treat and the unspoilt view of the Milky Way at night is simply breath-taking. We enjoyed the Medieval Fayre in Monflaquin. We have also taken advantage of the high tree walking at Biron and canoed down the Lot River. It's been a great holiday.

Perfect location in rural France with beautiful scenery

  • 4 of 5

Richard and Nanny were the perfect hosts. From the fresh homeade apple pie cake on arrival to always being there for help and advice on where to go in the area. Andante, is a superb gite suitable for young families or for couples wanting ample space. The swimming pool and play area were perfect for our needs, offering generous sized pool and swing/slide/playhouse. The lawned gardens (approx half an acre) were well kept and were not overlooked at all, being adjoined by farmland. We visited France for a wedding and found this to be a truly stunning area of France and we will certainly be back. Can thoroughly recommend Andante for a relaxing "get away from it all" holiday!! Thank you so much Richard and Nanny. Our grandchildren did not want to go home !!!

Just back from a wonderful stay.

There were 8 of us, 2 seniors, 2 adults, 3 teenagers and a 7 year old.

Property was perfect in size, location, facilities and with wonderfully attentive owners.

Thank you
