The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The Lot-et-Garonne is France as most people imagine France to be. Warm, verdant, colourful, picturesque, historic, and very peaceful. With just 305,000 people in a Department of almost 6,000 sq. kms, the Lot-et-Garonne has one of the lowest population densities in all France. It also has some of the best wine, the most beautiful scenery, and the loveliest and friendliest of people.

The economy of the Lot-et-Garonne is heavily reliant on agriculture, with tourism still in its relative infancy. Consequently the roads are very quiet and, unlike the Dordogne and Provence, few places are crowded even in the height of summer.

You will see growing in abundance, vines, maize, all kinds of fruit, fields of sunflowers, vegetables and many varieties of trees. This is also the centre of the French prune industry. Of course, with the agriculture comes the wildlife; you will find many birds of prey here (look out for magnificent Kites (both Red and Black) riding the thermals high above).

The summers are significantly warmer and sunnier than further north, with long settled spells. Rain is not usually a problem as, when it does come, it tends to be very heavy and of short duration.

This area is steeped with history and the architecture reflects this. There are castles to visit including Bonaguil, Biron and Duras. Over 40 Bastide towns to visit, with their lively markets in the village squares and each weekend from Spring onwards they hold village fetes.

The area has many grottes(caves) to visit including Lastournelle, Pech Merle and Les Eyzies.

If you like wine!! there are the local vineyards to visit including Cahors, Bergerac and Buzet but of course all the Bordeaux Vineyards are about an hours drive away.

There is a theme Parc in Agen, Parc Walibi , Parc en Ciel - a full fun day for the kids with aerial slides and climbing and the fabulous beaches at Bordeaux are just over an hours drive away


Sports - The house has a swimming pool and Agen has a 50m pool for those who want to get really fit. There is canoeing on the River Lot, Tennis courts and Horseriding nearby. Golf is 20Km away and of course the countryside is fabulous so there are many randonnees(walks) around the area.

The Canal Lateral, which runs from the Atlantic to the Med, is nearby and it is possible to hire a boat here or just take a walk or a bike ride by the side of the canal.

Eating Out- Every evening of the week in summer a local town holds a farmers market where you can taste the food and wine and then choose your meal and sit out all evening with the locals listening to a band - its brilliant.

If you prefer a restaurant, there is one in the village, two in the next village and too many to choose from in the surrounding towns.

"Large accomodation in beautiful setting"

The owners of this property couldn't have been more helpful.
As for the property itself, it is very secluded and peaceful. It's large, old and creaky but full of character and charm. The games room is great to relax with table tennis or a board game. The pool is set in the grounds with a lovely view although it was chillier than I expected for a heated pool.
I would say it is essential to speak some french as we found very few english speakers in local villages and restaurants. The only down-side is that in September almost every attraction we visited was closed for the season which was a disappointment. Wifi would have been so useful to have investigated opening times etc before setting off on wild goose chases.
With a few minor repairs to some of the equipment this could be a first class holiday home however I do appreciate that we went at the end of the season.

The Relais Bar/Restaurant in the village has WIFI. It is open every day and evening except Wednesday.

"A really relaxing, authentic and private place"

We spent a month at Bissiere and had a great time. The house is very well appointed and with its rustic charm reflects the region. The pool is excellent - wonderful to come back to after a hard day�… More

"Best Holiday in Yonks!"

I would absolutely recommend this property in France. It is very well maintained and the owners have been completely helpful and friendly too. The house is so spacious and the pics online dont really do it justice. The games room fab and the bedrooms comfortable and living room lovely. The views and surrounding countryside are amazing. Great wildlife and sunsets! Lovely immaculate pool and fab weather and food - the kids loved it and travel there was hassle free. A lovely totally private house and pool - perfect for relaxing!
