Further details indoors

The accommodation is ultimately flexible but generally consists of two large en suite bedrooms, both of which also have sofas that convert into single beds. Another bedroom has twin beds and the fourth has a full-sized, good quality double sofa bed. Two proper cots are available and would fit in to any bedroom.

This house has been lived in by a family and is therefore equipped to deal with any child or baby needs! We are happy to offer sterilisers, a liquidiser, bumbos, a changing mat, plastic plates/bowls/spoons, a playmat, a buggy and a bike seat.

A separate utility room keeps all washing and cleaning away from the large open kitchen and a downstairs WC and shower room can be accessed directly from the outside deck and pool area.

UK television is available through Freesat and the CD stereo in the lounge also has an iPod dock.

Further details outdoors

The rear terrace is undoubtedly the most stunning feature of this house with its hardwood deck jutting out over the Dordogne and built-in stone barbecue.

The heated swimming pool has a safety cover and a constant depth of 1.25m as well as a stepped entry and sitting area.

In order to preserve the views, a clear glass balustrade has been used around the entire area to ensure safety while adding to the wow factor.

The professionally designed front garden has lawned areas as well as a stone patio with seating for six under a jasmine-covered arbour which provides much needed shade and the river can be accessed by the side of the house for boating and fishing.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

This area has been popular with tourists for decades and it is easy to see why. A glorious climate makes it rich in produce and changing seasons see the village surrounded in turn by fields of sunflowers, fruit, maize and the ubiquitous vines that are such a feature of the landscape.

Historic bastide towns preserve the traditions of the past and modern cities such as Bordeaux (home to Europe’s longest shopping street) are attracting international acclaim.

The Atlantic coast has some of France’s best beaches and world surfing championships are regularly held in the area with the lively coastal resorts of Lacanau and Biscarosse reached in two hours.

Picturesque fishing huts perch on stilts over the bay of Arcachon, a basin famous for its birdlife, shellfish industry and Europe's biggest sand dune at Pyla.

Inland lakes are popular with tourists and locals alike for relaxed waterside days out and most offer facilities such as bars, restaurants and child-friendly swimmming areas.

The region is perfect for exploring, with cycling, canoeing and walking available in abundance while photographers and painters will appreciate the excellent quality of light.

Often referred to as the home of French gastronomy, the cuisine of this part of France is magnificent, a perfect accompaniment to the wines that have made the area famous.

Flaujagues

Flaujagues is a quiet village occupying an idyllic riverside location and home to a restaurant with excellent chef, a café bar, post office, boulanger and well-stocked shop, all two minutes walk from the house.

The commune is also home to a wine cooperative where the produce from local vineyards can be sampled and purchased and the port can be used for launching boats or canoes that can be hired from nearby Pessac, with one-way pick up available.

Not to be missed are the village Bastille Day celebrations when people come from miles around for the amazing firework display from the banks of the Dordogne… without doubt the best view of the occasion is from your own terrace.

Flaujagues also holds a popular annual brocante, regular night markets and a number of summer dinner dance events in the square.

Castillon La Bataille is 10 minutes away and famous for its summer re-enactments of the end of the Hundred Years War, an elaborate spectacle using scores of actors, horses, dogs and impressive pyrotechnics. The town also holds two markets a week and is home to four big supermarkets as well as pharmacies, doctors etc

Nearby St Foy La Grande holds a popular and lively Saturday market and 15 minutes drive takes you to the World Heritage site of St Emilion, famous for its chateaux and vineyards.

The Lac de Cadie can be reached in a five-minute drive and is an ideal place for young families with calm, shallow water, soft sand, a lifeguard, restaurant and pedalos available to hire.

"Riverside Paradise!"

My wife and 3 young children spent two memorable weeks at this beautiful home. Although the photos are nice, they really do not do the place justice. The owners have renovated and decorated the house to the highest standards and one can really feel how much of their heart and soul went into it. The house directly overlooks the Dordogne River where one can hang out on a very large deck with a pool and BBQ, eat, drink, read, and swim to one's content, while taking in the river's natural beauty and breathtaking sunsets. The house is located in a very small village but there is a quite good restaurant and store/bakery located 3 minutes walk from the house. St. Emillion is only 20 minutes by car and most of the "must-see" things in greater Bordeaux are within easy driving distance. The owners are very nice to work with and full of helpful suggestions. Even today, my kids still talk about "the France house"!

"Beautiful location, house very well equipped, village extremely quiet."

The position on the river bend together with the decked area with pool is delightful. House is extremely well equipped including for young children with items of good quality. Spacious kitchen which accommodated all three families. Pool/bbq area, also well equipped, is a real plus. Village was very quiet indeed and the one shop was very limited. Good parking right outside. Overall, it was ideal for our needs, 6 adults plus three children under 4.

"Wonderful house, fabulous for family holiday"

Beautiful, beautiful house - fabulous interiors and a stunning pool deck. We loved staying here and enjoyed every minute of our time - even cooking was a pleasure in the lovely, very well equipped kitchen. The village is small but has an excellent little shop for daily croissants and bread, and the adjoining restaurant was very good. Very easy to hire canoes nearby, and the local villages are worth exploring.
