Le Berme is surrounded by 17 acres of its own private gardens and parkland; peace and tranquility reign. And yet it's only a 20 minute walk through fields of crops along a pilgrim's path to the nearest village, Castillonnes; a lively historic bastide.

The gite is self-contained and has been furnished and equipped to a very high standard with a double and twin bedroom. It boasts modern kitchen appliances and a bathroom with twin washbasins and a large shower. You can watch English or French programs on the TV and the Wi-Fi is free.

The gardens are packed with a variety of colourful flowers and shrubs. It's a plant-lover's paradise and attracts an eclectic mix of butterflies and birds. In the grounds you'll find rare specimen trees and may be lucky enough to get a glimpse of a small herd of deer or a hare. Everyone makes friends with our charming and entertaining red squirrels.

Castillonnes is a thriving village with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants including 3 bakeries, 2 supermarkets and a tourist information office. The Tuesday morning market has been a popular meeting place since the Middle Ages! Casti is centrally placed with easy access to the attractions of the Lot et Garonne and Dordogne departments.
