Further details outdoors

The outdoors is around 8 acres for you to enjoy... 4 acres of gardens and 4 of forest, feel free to wander or just sit and take in the peace and tranquillity, most of the land has now been reclaimed after years of neglect the meadow and gardens are looking good and new trails in the forest are under way, some parts are fully unexplored as yet, maybe you will be first, but don't get lost...

The above ground pool is welcoming and has been a big favourite and as we only take a few guests is very relaxing and private

What can I tell you... the view, the area... it's France... just what is needed to relax, forget it all for a week or 2.

The Basse-Normandie region

This area of France is great for the wine connoisseur or those who just want to experience the tastings.

With fields of vines, orchards and sunflowers in the surrounding areas, and the long river Dordogne to wander along in the long hot summer evenings are just wonderful.

As well as the towns and villages there are all means of activities close by, horse riding, golf, canoeing etc all within easy reach.


A short walk from the village of Lamothe Montravel, 10 minutes from the grand chateau of St Michel de Montaigne where you can explore the garden and sample the wines.

Castillon La Battaille(7k) where the French after 100 yrs drove out the English. Mondays is market day.

Libourne is a wonderful ancient bastide town. Market day is Thurs.

St Foy Le Grande (10k) has a 13th century Gothic church and a museum. Market day is Saturdays.

St Emilion(15k). Just 15 minutes away magnificent medieval town with history galore. A very famous town with plenty of wine tasting a very good restaurants also a huge tower, an ancient prison, to climb and see over the French countryside. Well worth a visit.

Bergerac (36k). The capital of the wine growing industry sat on the beautiful banks of the Dordogne, museums of the beggings of the wine and boat trips along the Dordogne available another must see and do.

Bordeaux, Lacanau and Archachon, are the coastal towns the nearest is Bordeaux around an hour away if you want the sea.

"Beautiful location"

Brilliant gite in the most beautiful location. We loved the peace and quiet, lots of wonderful walks (the dog loved it too) Many thanks to Robert for making our stay so memorable - we loved picking our own veggies from his plot and also for the welcome pack - much appreciated nothing was too much trouble. Definitely will come again 1 not to be missed.

"welcoming, home from home gite in rural France, what more could you want?"

We have just had the most relaxing time here, the weather and gite were perfect. We took our bikes and got out on them most days with a different route each time. The riding is easy going on quiet roads which wind through vineyards, small sleepy villages and paths which follow the Dordogne. The pool was a welcome cooling relief when it was hot in the saddle! Robert is the 'host with the most', his allotment has tomatoes, cucumber, green beans, courgettes, aubergines, peppers, chillies, onions and garlic all of which he encourages guests to pick fresh. The accommodation offers everything anyone needs and if it doesn't Robert will make sure he gets it. Thank you Robert for a great holiday

"Relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings with friendly host."

We stayed at La Maison aux Volets Verts for one week this August and had a really lovely holiday. The setting was very beautiful. Lovely areas to go for walks, seats placed in peaceful places, perfect for a relaxing time. The swimming pool and jacuzzi although not big were a lovely addition to the grounds and as the weather was hot a great place to chill out Robert our host was very friendly and extremely helpful.
