Mussidan is the nearest town about 3.5 miles away with a selection of bars and a few restaurants and takeaway establishments. No McDonalds for 25 miles - heaven! The boulangeries in Mussidan provide excellent bread, croissants and pastries for breakfast on the terrace overlooking the pool. There are many supermarkets in Mussidan including Intermarche and SuperU . There's even a Lidl and Netto!
For those who enjoy walking the house is ideally situated for this too.
A car is essential due to the location of the villa and an English owned company called Buggs Car Hire situated at Bergerac Airport is highly recommended. The area is also served by cheap flights to both Bergerac (27km) and Bordeaux (108km) Airports. If you chose to take your own car Bourgnac is a 518 mile journey from Calais and takes around 8 hours if you make use of the Toll roads.
There are 3 adult sized bikes for guests' use and a pool table, dart board and croquet set for the less energetic.
Allied to the tranquillity of the villa, the historic town of Bergerac (with all amenities) and the Dordogne River are both within 20 miles. Ideally situated for wine lovers, the house is within easy driving distance of classic vineyards such as St Emilion, Bordeaux and many local favourites such as Bergerac and Percharmant. There are many high quality and fairly priced restaurants within an easy drive..
The open and unspoilt Atlantic beaches beyond Bordeaux are just over an hour's drive, while the famous seaside town of Arcachon, with its oyster beds and Europe's largest sand dune, is a little further. The French also enjoy a phenomenon known as La Grand Etang - basically an inland lake with a sandy beach. The wonderful Grand Etang de La Jemaye is 18 miles from the villa and a great day out with cafe, restaurant and free canoe use in high season and a childrens' play area.
Sorry. No pets allowed.
So in summary, the Captains' Cabin is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Lets' face it - we all need that once in a while.
