Lamothe Montravel, Dordogne

Huge skies, perfect peace, and castles and wineries close by. Take all 4 gîtes and have free run, or make new friends by the BBQ and pool


4 places


Sleeping from 2 – 4


This big old barn stands high above the Dordogne valley on vine-covered flatlands, close to wine town Bergerac and Castillon-la-Bataille where the English finally lost the Hundred Years War; the battle is re-enacted each summer. Three gîtes and a studio share this converted space, but it rarely feels crowded: the pool is flanked by sun loungers and a large glass-walled pool house, and the child-friendly garden has plenty of tables for savouring whatever comes off the barbecue. Sitting rooms are airily spacious, with stone walls, terracotta tiles and contemporary art framed by long flowing curtains; kitchens have breakfast bars, electric ovens, dishwashers; bedrooms are white or pale with billowing duvets. Be prepared to share the garden, pool and barbecue with other guests, unless you book the whole barn for family and friends. This is the land of castles, cuisine, AOC wines and wine-tastings… of summer festivals in Saint-Émilion, sightseeing in Bordeaux, canoeing on the Dordogne river. A fun, unpretentious place for those who don’t crave silence or solitude.

Lovely place to base yourself in the Dordogne countryside - you couldn't ask for better hosts. David and Helen couldn't do anymore to make us feel at home and keep us in the loop about local activities - the night markets around the area are a must! Communal eating among villagers and tourists with live music and great food. Follow their advice and you will be sure to have a lovely time - great pool and very quiet and peaceful for guests on their lovely property. A must, the baguette traditionel from the local Boulangerie (in Lamothe-Montravel) along with all the other amazing things on offer.

A little piece of heaven! No words can describe how wonderful this place is! If you love peace and quiet mixed with quality family time in the most gorgeous setting then this place is for you. Our 5 and 7 year old boys loved the pool, the garden and everything about it! We actually stayed in the studio and the boys slept on their camp beds and for us it was perfect. I can imagine one of the bigger cottages would be absolute luxury but we felt our little gite was perfect for us! Helen couldn't have been more helpful and we really hope to visit again.
