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.
Since October 2014 Richard and Nanny are the proud owners of Andante.
They will do all in their reach to make a stay at Andante an enjoyable and memorable event.

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.
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).
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.
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.
