Le Maubec is a beautifully restored ancient farm cottage which is over 200 years old. Sitting in open countryside yet just a short distance from the charming village of Allemans du Dropt. The cottage is rural, but not isolated. It is very well presented with two double bedrooms (one ensuite) and one twin bedroom. There is a lovely beamed lounge with dining area and a well equipped kitchen. The kitchen leads onto a south facing terrace with dining table, chairs and a bbq. Outside there is a beautiful 12X5m private pool with roman steps. The cottage stands in around 1 acre of level gardens with trees and lawns.

For the cooler months the property has full oli-fired central heating and a wood burner in the lounge. For those travelling by air there is a hairdryer, straightening irons and bed line and towels can be provided for a small laundry charge.

Le Maubec is well situated for visiting the many interesting and pretty towns and villages in the area, including the “bastide” towns of Duras with its magnificent castle/chateau and Eymet with its attractive square and remains of a fortified gateway, Soumensac with its beautiful old buildings and Knights Templar church, Allemans du Dropt with the outstanding frescoes in the church. Also Monteton, a hilltop village with a great view across the valley and La Sauvetat du Dropt with its fine church, old buildings and connections with the Templars of Soumensac. The bastide towns of Miramont de Guyenne, Monsegur, Castillones, Issigeac and Monpazier are a short drive away and well worth visiting.

A little further afield is the historic town of Bergerac – narrow streets and old buildings with several museums and galleries. The town is also an excellent venue for shopping, and hosts a wonderful firework display and food festival in July.

Canoes and Kayaks can be hired at nearby Allemans du Dropt for a trip up the river, and there are many rambling routes in the lovely surrounding countryside.

The cottage is within easy reach of Bergerac airport (around 30 minutes) with Bordeaux airport about 1.5 hours away.

"Excellent accommodation in a lovely setting."

We were a family party of four females and stayed at Le Maubec for 1 week at the end of June. Le Maubec, which is spacious, is very well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. Good quality… More

"Fantastic gite"

Le maubec is a very nicely presented gite in a lovely area of France.This was our first time to France and we weren't disappointed. Le maubec has everything, if you need it while on holiday I bea… More

Thanks for the glowing review, we try very hard to make Le Maubec 'home from home'. we are very pleased that you chose us as you first visit to France. It is good to read reviews where guests comment about the pool alarm as this is a legal requirement in France and sufficiently sensitive to occasionally sound without warning, but also capable of detecting a small child in distress. We look forward to welcoming you back.

"Another fantastic Christmas break"

The second time to Le Maubec over winter ( we do intend to come back in summer and try that lovely pool) and even better than last visit. The house feels like a home from home. There are logs to bur… More

"Excellent, ideal for 3 generation family, young pensioner to 3 year old"

Just returned from 2 weeks at Le Maubec, I wish we could have stayed longer.
A fantastic place to stay, everything is provided and you will not want for anything. The swimming pool is excellent and grounds are very good, plenty of space for all to play including swings.The two outside dining areas are a good idea. The plant covered one we called our Taverna.
The two children are already are asking to go back

"Home from home"

This property was everything we expected and more very well equipped , the pool and surrounding areas were very good, nothing was to much trouble from the owner when asked any questions relating to the house.If were to return to this area again we would certainly like to return to this property

"Great place for winter break will be back to explore in summer"

We have never spent Christmas away from home before so being in France quite an interesting experience. This area is lovely, quiet but close to some very picturesque villages and towns. Local bakers which was great for fresh bread, Although it wasn't as cold as in the uk (it was warm enough to sit outside for lunch on the south facing veranda) we were still glad of the central heating and to be able to cosy up to the log burning stove on an evening. Pity it wasn't quite warm enough to make use of great pool. Will certainly be back to test this out in summer.
