Our grounds and the region
We are located half way between the pretty Bastide villages of Issigeac and Eymet along the beautiful Dropt valley. We are at the end of a long pine tree-lined drive.
The nearest town with boulangerie, supermarket and petrol station is Castillonnès. It is a 10 minute drive from the gîte.
We provide a full information guide in the property.
The grounds and pool
The gîte is located within the grounds of our Art-Deco house overlooking the river Dropt valley. The gîte is within an enormous old dairy barn, giving covered private parking. The terrace opens out across the swimming pool and far-reaching views.
The infinity swimming pool is private to you. Its has a beautiful paved sun deck with loungers, umbrellas and a pretty gazebo with table and chairs. The pool is 15m x 6m with an infinity view across the valley.
We are blessed with spectacular, south-facing views and sunsets. We have 200 year old cedars-of-Lebanon trees. We have a small orchard and when ripe you can pick the fruit.
We have a second barn that used to be a prune drying space. It now includes ping-pong, table football and boules.
We live in the main property and have 33 acres of private grounds giving a perfect sense of tranquility. We are on-hand to give you plenty of advice on activities and restaurants.
We have a sizeable koi carp pond that is viewable to our guests.
