The main house is big and elegant, with an almost Parisian flair. Inside it’s quirky and minimalist with high ceilings, huge beams and lots of space; 16 in the main house and the same again across the three modern gîtes in the converted barn next door. Both areas have a pool, grounds and wide farmland views. Rent separately or as a group and come together in the salons for drinks and conversation.
Upstairs there’s plenty to do: a central space with toys and games, ping pong and day beds for afternoon naps, plus a big garden for racing around or idling in the sun. Gather the troops for sun-dappled lunches on the gravel terrace.
It’s very quiet and peaceful here. You’ll adopt a slower pace for Aquitaine’s marchés gourmands and friendly farm shops, kayaking on the river Dropt and lazy wandering around châteaux – Bridoire has giant chess, pedalos and a maze.
