About the property

House in Queyssel, Nr. Eymet, Dordogne, Aquuitaine / Dordogne, France - Tranquil Rural Location, But Within A Short Drive Or Cycle To Nearby Lauzun And Eyme

"Les Volets Rouges" is a large and comfortable family home set in quiet rural location, with lots of room indoors and out for family and friends to relax and play.

Set in 2 acres of gardens and surrounded by farm-land, the house offers an informal self-catering retreat from which to enjoy the best of the Lot et Garonne and neighbouring Dordogne, and some fine golf courses too!

The property, located in the small hamlet of Queyssel, comprises an original and characterful building dating back nearly 200 years and offers accommodation for up to 8 guests (with an option of +2 children by arrangement)

Les Volets Rouges has 3 x twin bedded rooms and 1 x double-bedded room, with two bath/shower/w.c.

A large, well equipped kitchen-diner with 3 meter oak table provides indoor cooking & dining facilities whilst the 2 shady garden patios and purpose built BBQ allow for al-fresco eating too.

Les Volets Rouges also has two sitting rooms, with TV / Video / DVD and WiFi available.

Having served as a family holiday home for 40 years, there's a charming and relaxed character to the property that immediately puts guests at ease and ready to enjoy a stress-free holiday, relaxing in the gardens, using the private swimming pool, visiting local villages and markets or just taking it easy with local walks by the Dropt river.

Given its rural location, use of a car is recommended (essential?) - a choice of car rental companies are based at nearby Bergerac international airport.

About Marc Smith

Our English-French family have enjoyed Queyssel as a holiday home for nearly 50 years. It has been a wonderful place to while away the long hot summers and the occasional festive Christmas holiday as we've grown up over the years. Now the house is being enjoyed by the 3rd family generation too.

Marc Smith purchased this house in 1970

Why Marc Smith chose Queyssel

Our family home offers a comfortable and relaxed environment where all the basic needs are covered: comfortable bedrooms, big kitchen and dining area, large swimming pool (security fence protected). A perfect location for a self catered holiday with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Quiet and tranquil, set in a rural hamlet, but not far from the delightful town of Eymet, Les Volets Rouges is a haven for Francophiles and their family & friends to enjoy a relaxed break in the Lot et Garonne / Dordogne.

But, if you chose, there's lots to do in the area; golfing, cycling, wine tasting, historic visits... so make it your base-camp and come back after a day of activity to jump straight into the pool or slump into a hammock.

Ideal for a great family hoiday

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 10 (7 adults and 3 children) we found Les Volets Rouge to be the ideal place for a great family holiday. The house was spacious, comfortable, very well equipped and full or character. We particulary enjoyed the huge gardens and pool area, where we spent most of our days having fun in the pool, relaxing and eating. The property is surrounded by plenty of mature trees which provided ample shady places away from the hot summer sun. It's in a very quiet location with some lovely nearby villages and towns to explore.

Peter, Dorota and family.

Beautifully picturesque, spacious and rambling...

  • 5 of 5

A week at Les Volets Rouge was the prefect antidote to the stresses of working life at home in England and gave us the opportunity to enjoy the company of a large group of our friends. We only wished it had been a month.

The house is beautifully picturesque, spacious and rambling, with comfortable nooks for every mood and requirement.

The spacious and well kept gardens and the orchard are a delight, allowing us to wander and explore, soak up the sun around the pool and eat outside in a variety of choice spots on different lawns and terraces: - enough space for our friends all to be together or do their own thing without leaving the grounds.

Idyllic, relaxing and near enough to charming and historic local towns for a quick trip to fetch the breakfast croissants, visit the markets or eat out in the evening, but far enough away to be entirely tranquil.

Enough WiFi and phone coverage to be connected when necessary, but not too much so as to be troubled by either.

We are looking forward to returning to this special place.
