Further details outdoors

The garden is an unfenced area (approx half an acre) of grass and woodland. The swimming pool is behind the owner's cottage next door and shared with that property. It is 5 x 11 metres / uniform 1.4 m deep and has an electrically operated security shutter which should be closed when the pool is not in use. HOLIDAY MAKERS HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE POOL FROM 09.00 to 18.00 and evening use by arrangement. A heat exchange pump for the pool was installed in April 2012.

Further details

The staircase is quite steep and narrow. The garden is only partly fenced and thus, being on the edge of the river, may not be suitable for young children (or unruly dogs!). Woodburning stove in kitchen / electric radiators elsewhere.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The Dordogne has hot but not oppressive summers, spring and autumn tend to be balmy and pleasant. Winters are obviously colder but with blue skies and sunshine - it is often possible to eat lunch outside in February and March!

The region has a colourful and interesting history - prehistoric cave paintings, Roman villas and mosaics, mediaeval towns and castles. The 100 years war was fought throughout the area with "bastide" towns changing hands between the English and French on a regular basis.

Bordeaux (one hour away) is an elegant town - lovely shops, good restaurants and many interesting buildings and museums. It is serviced by a very good tram service with the "park and ride" system making getting in quick and stressless.

Castillion la Bataille

Castillon La Bataille (15 mins) is where the decisive battle took place to end the hundred year war. The town stages a "son & lumiere" re-enactment of the battle on several evenings during late July & early August each year. A cast of hundreds including dozens of horses, a couple of oxen and a pig!

St Emillion, world famous for it's wines, is only 30 minutes away. It is a UNESCO Heritage site, classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It has narrow cobbled streets, a wide selection of restaurants, and of course lots of wine tasting opportunities.

Ste. Foy la Grande is a typical French market town - the market on Saturday mornings is reputed to be one of the best in the area. It is possible to take boat trips up the river from here.

Throughout the summer most villages have "brocante" fairs, night markets, firework displays and communal evenings with food, wine, music and dancing.
