A lovely area of South-West France, including the southern part of the Dordogne region, the northern part of the Lot-et-Garonne department, and the Dropt Valley, together forming one of the most beautiful and unspoiled parts of France. 180km from Atlantic coast.

Unspoilt countryside, rivers and caves, beautiful gardens and small unspoilt villages - several classed as 'most beautiful villages in France'.

Castillonnes, Lot et Garonne

In the region you will find chateaux, including Bonaguil, Beynac and Biron; medieval towns, including Domme, Belves, Monpazier and Sarlat; Caves with pre-historic drawings. Artisans with many crafts.

Much of the most beautiful rural architecture in France is to be seen here - ancient houses, barns, pigeonniers and churches simply form part of the unchanging landscape.

Most Bastide towns have their own markets and night markets with live music.Plenty of tourist information available in the property for planning your trips out! Activities can range from hot air ballooning at Duras to canoeing on the Lot or Dordogne rivers.

"Try it you wont regret it!"

Rarely do you come across a villa that ticks all your boxes and owners who really go the extra mile when needed. For those reasons alone we thoroughly recommend this villa in the heart of the French countryside, ideally positioned for exploring the bastide towns with markets every day of the week. The villa is superbly equipped with huge lounge and dining room and large kitchen, in fact everything you could possibly want and with extensive patios with new furniture, gas BBQ, clean large pool, gardens and more for outdoor living. Sue and her faithful golden retriever Checkers will make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive until to the minute you leave. Try it you wont regret it.

A delightful young professional party returning for their second year. The damage was agreed by the guests and the deductions from the Breakages Deposit were made at cost and receipts given. There was no charge for the extensive labour involved in fitting a new toilet seat and toilet which had to be replaced immediately so causing us to miss the Tour de France passing through the area!
