Gascony Gite In Stunning Village Of Sos

Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
Cottage in Sos, Nr. Nerac, Lot et Garonne, Aquitaine / Dordogne, France - Peaceful Location, On Edge Of Village, 5 Mins Walk To Centre Of Village, With Shops,and Restaurants

We are happy to announce that due to feedback from our customers we have commissioned the installation of a swimming pool in the Orchard

(Verger), work on which will commence in the next week or two.

The pool will be a good size, 8 metres by 4 metres and 1.4 metres in depth. There will be a decked and paved area within the landscaped pool area which will be adjacent to the large shaded terrace. Also a solar shower will be installed next to the pool.

Louise and I will ensure that this facility will be up to the high standards of our accommodation and will provide a tranquil and pleasing area for relaxation and a moderate amount of exercise for both parents and their family.

We are confident that completion of this project will be before next years season's commencement and look forward to being able to publish photographs.

Newly converted Holiday Gite, in the Village of SOS , Gascony. This old cottage has been transformed into a stunning luxury gite. log inglenook fireplace, farmhouse kitchen, large private securely fenced patio area with bbq large peach and fig orchard to wonder through or just sit and take in the French sunshine. WE also have an apartment Gite next to the large gite, which sleeps 2, ideal for extra family or friends!please enquire

This amazing area of France is sometime described as the Tuscany of France, has rolling hills of vineyards, meandering rivers, forests to explore, and wonderful Cities and towns. In the summer months theer are music festivals all over the region.

We would recommend a car. Car hire in France is very reasonable.

There are night markets during July and August in surrounding villages,which are great fun,selling local produce ,which is cooked for you ,tables and chairs are provided,and of course the excellent selections of Bordeaux wines.our village of Sos,has its night market on Wednesday,and is only 3 mins walk from the gite!

Nerac and Condom are our nearest large towns,both have the river Baisse running through them,where you can hire boats,or go on organised boat trips.they also both have excellent markets.

There are fantastic open air swimming pools all around the nearest is in Mezin,which is 8 mins from SOS,there is an amazing water park in Gondrin,which is about 20 min drive. Kayaking on the nearby rivers,walking cycling and horse riding in the forest which adjoins Sos .

We are inundated with fabulous restaurants,which we can recommend,obviously we have had to do extensive research on this !

Well laid out property with delightful BBQ area

  • 4 of 5

This well laid out accommodation provides everything you need for a peaceful holiday on the edge of a small village with shop and bar/bistro. The BBQ area in a dedicated section of the garden is a delight. The owners are friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. Highly recommended.

Peaceful, comfortable well maintained gite,

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 6 days in August 2016, 2 adults 2 girls aged 12 and 14.

Our first impressions entering the gite on a 30 something degree afternoon was how cool the inside of the thick stone walled cottage was. The upstairs bedrooms did get warm during the evenings but the cool downstairs remained very comfortable.

The interior is tastefully decorated and the large farmhouse kitchen with long table excellent for those long family breakfasts. The private BBQ area is a lovely space for outdoor eating, reading, relaxing - leading onto the large orchard.

The grocery shop in the village 3 mins walk away really has everything you'd need, more so than you'd think for a quiet village of this size. We tried the bistro restaurant which had friendly if not the fastest service.

The property would be improved greatly by a swimming pool as there is no nearby river swimming (that we could find anyway) and the 3 water park type facilities we visited were between 15 and 30 minutes drive. Our favourites were the nearby Nirac water parc and the "wipeout" style parc 25mins drive away.

All in all a very pleasant stay - and as a road cyclist must add that the quiet, well maintained roads and bike friendly drivers made the morning rides a pleasure.

Well equipped gite in an unspoilt part of France

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in this lovely, well appointed gite. We were made very welcome by Louise and Gunton and nothing was too much trouble. As a family (we have two boys aged 7 and 12) we really enjoyed exploring Gascony, which felt like a hidden gem and very unspoilt. The boys loved playing in the orchard with the owner's friendly dogs. We would definitely recommend this gite to our friends.
