The Experience

The owners are next door but you have your own separate entrance and outdoor space, the feel will be very private. The main living area is double height, light and airy with doors to both terraces and gardens – fling these open on hot days and you can drift seamlessly indoors and out. There’s a covered patio for barbecues and eating, even in a downpour, or a wisteria-covered terrace by the (unheated) pool. Over an acre of gardens mean you can always find a secret spot with a book.

A nice country kitchen is roomy with a worktop island and a table big enough for 12, so you can entertain if you like. There are basics for cooking in stock and Bill leaves you a couple of bottles of local wine plus a jar of his homemade marmalade. On cooler days you can light the wood-burner, find lots of books to read, even have a game of bar billiards.

Join walks, stock up at lovely markets, sleep soundly on smooth vintage linen, relish the peace.

Location

The neighbourhood

It's quiet because it's remote. The nearest place to stock up (a 15-minute drive) is Villeréal, a 13th-century bastide town with a super outdoor market, several restaurants and bars. Monflanquin is also 15 minutes in the car and is worth exploring for its medieval architecture. You can join Grande Randonnée hiking trails from the door and find a superb restaurant in Lougratte, 7 kms away.

Local points of interest from Bill & Anthea Quick

  • We love living here in the gently rolling hills of the Lot et Garonne which is often referred to as the Tuscany of France. The area is steeped in history and has many beautiful small medieval bastide towns the nearest of which is Villereal.

  • With the whole area steeped in history there is plenty to see and do,the Dordogne valley and its chateaux is close by so is Bergerac and its vineyards.Through the summer months there many weekly events including concerts, gourmet markets and brocantes,
  • Nearby there is a tennis court (2km), a tree climbing park with zip wires,horse riding,trotting races,go karting, theme park,water parks, caves, wine tours,canoeing and bike rental.
  • Bergerac airport is only 34km away and is served by numerous UK airports and has several car rental agencies on site. Bordeaux and Toulouse airports are two hours away.
