The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

Although the nearest town is Fumel in Lot-et-Garonne the property is situated on the border, in the neighbouring Department of the Lot. The Department of the Lot is famous for the river of the same name which runs through it and on to Bordeaux. Along its banks are numerous vineyards which produce the famous black wine of Cahors from the Malbec grape. The river provides all types of water activities including fishing and kayaking.

The food is magnificent and the region is often called the kitchen of France. Local specialities include duck and goose confit, foie gras, truffles, goat's cheese and all kinds of fruit. The English and French fought over the land during the Middle Ages and as a result there are many castles in the area today. La Bergerie actually overlooks the Chateau de Bonaguil but within a short drive you can visit other castles like Biron or Fumel or bastide towns like Monflanquin, Monpazier or Tournon d'Agenais.

Fumel

Fumel is less than 10 minutes away by car. It is a small town but has a Leclerc hypermaket and several supermarkets. Every Thursday morning throughout the year there is a big market in Monsempron-Libos which adjoins Fumel (offering everything from local food to clothes and dvds).

Every Wednesday and Sunday morning there is a small market in Fumel itself selling fruit, vegetables, breads, cheeses and other local produce. The Chateau de Fumel overlooks the Lot river. There are often spectacles in its amphitheatre. The Chateau de Bonaguil belongs to the town of Fumel.

You can visit any time (there are English language tours) and there is a famous annual music and theatre festival in August. Almost every day during the summer one of the local villages will host a market. Please check the local paper. The nearest large towns are Villeneuve-sur-Lot (30mins by car), Cahors (40mins) and Agen (50mins).

"Brilliant holiday, brilliant house, excellent location"

This was our second year in succession staying at La Bergerie and we fully intend to return next year. The house is perfect for large groups of family or friends or both as it allows privacy and yet the ability to eat and socialise together. The pool is excellent being larger than most private pools and a magnet for daytime dips and evening get togethers under the stars. We ate all our meals on the terrace, the view from there to the castle is magical and the whole experience allowed us to return home (reluctantly) fully relaxed and recharged.

"A wonderful holiday"

Eight of us stayed for two weeks, the last week in July and the first in August and had the most relaxing holiday in a long time. The house itself works brilliantly, with somewhere for everyone to relax, swim, chat, doze. We ate every meal outside on the terrace, with the view through the trees to the castle. The pool is a perfect size and is located in the warmest part of the plot, with a very comfortable and shaded seating area. The village of Bonaguil is a ten minute walk away with delightful shops and restaurants and the castle to explore. The house is obviously loved and makes a very comfortable and relaxing place for a holiday.
