Laze in the pools, gazing at the stars.  Chrissie and Simon run a spa business in the Alps so know what they’re doing! Their pale stone, two-storey, two-stair house, its pillared entrance swathed in wisteria, is just outside the village of St Aubin in the wide Lot valley. It’s an easygoing place with a mix of old and new features and furniture, and masses of room outside and in for family groups and for four couples. The master bedroom is the biggest, with a walk-in shower and French windows straight out to the garden; the other three charm too, touches of colour lifting the white theme; all have bathrooms with roll top baths and retro washbasins. The airy, light ground floor has a conservatory off the open-plan living space with its fireplace, huge cream sofas and TV (behind closed doors). And, separated by an island unit, is the low-key and extraordinarily well-equipped kitchen – doesn’t everyone need an ice cream maker? You can canoe on the river five minutes away; it’s ten to medieval Monflanquin. Hire a bike to visit castles and vineyards and return for a soak in the hot tub. Good fun.

Local points of interest from

  • Take yourself back to a time less hurried and chill out. Lots to do here, heated endless pool and amazing summer pool! Huge hot-tub, outdoor barrel sauna/steam room, pool table, boules, table tennis too. A/C for super hot days. Tennis & golf nearby too.
  • Lots of fantastic restaurants nearby in medieval Monflanquin, perfect for lunch and dinner too! In Summer Thursdays night market is perfect for wine, music and song in one of the prettiest villages in France, 2 fab Boulangerie/Patisseries here too. Mmm!
  • Don't want to cook? Our chef can create a mouthwatering feast! Candlelit dinners & waitress service too! Just for one or for every night, the choice is yours. Perfect for celebrations. He can prepare and leave a meal for your first night too, no stress!
  • Lots of vineyards round here, all are great! Our favourite is Tertres du Plantou, organic & excellent. The owner speaks English and opens up to visitors for tasting. She is so passionate about her wine, grapes and the vineyard, you will just love it all.
  • We are surrounded by ancient medieval towns, castles steeped in history and underground caverns. There are amazing fun places for kids, markets, fairs and golf and we are just 5 mins from the River Lot. Horseriding, tennis and rugby here in St Aubin too!
  • New for 2019, fabulous kids playground! Looking for a special place for a special occasion? We can sleep up to 20 with Le Papillon right next door. Celebrate here Summer or Winter alike as we have central heating and a glorious huge open fire. Heaven!
