Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Your own spacious apartment within a farmhouse surrounded by Monbazillac vineyards in the Dordogne, SW France.
Local village 5kms away with boulangerie, butchers, newsagents and small supermarket. Bergerac airport is only 12kms away.
The apartment is an independent, private part of a large house and has its own garden terrace, kitchen, large living-space with wood-fired stoves, shower and two toilets. Sorry - but no smoking indoors permitted - we like to keep the house fresh for all our guests.
There are two twin-bedded rooms with the option to add a Zed-bed, if required.
Only 15 minutes drive from the historic town of Bergerac, which has its own airport serving over 20 international destinations.
Local vineyards (producing Bergerac and Monbazillac wines) offer wine-tasting - and some are within a minute's walking distance! There are excellent restaurants as well as colourful local markets to visit. In the summer months the bastide town of Eymet has a special evening market on Tuesdays and Bergerac offers jazz concerts every Wednesday evening in the old town.
East of Bergerac are the Lascaux pre-historic cave paintings, the medieval towns of Sarlat, Rocamadour and Beynac, together with many dramatic chateaux and bastide towns from the time of the 'Hundred Years War'.
To the west is Bordeaux and the vineyards of St.Emilion, Graves, Sauternes and the Médoc. Further west, (two hours drive away) are the Atlantic beaches.
The Dordogne and Vézere rivers are both navigable by canoe and there are many centres where canoes can be rented on an hourly or daily basis.
For the serious golfer, one of the finest courses in south-west France is at Chateau des Vigiers (a 20 minute drive).
There are also opportunities nearby for horse-riding - and for the more adventurous - hot air ballooning!
