The Aquitaine region
Perhaps one of the most fascinating places to visit is Les Eyzies, an acknowledged source of prehistoric man, whilst nearby are Bergerac and Sarlat on the Dordogne River, where much of the old French culture originated. There is a marvellous circuit of fortified 'bastide' towns, new towns developed during the 13th and 14th centuries, they were the last manifestation of the great movement involving rural and urban expansion in the Europe of the Middle Ages. They have a large central square and a classical pattern of narrow streets intersecting at right angles - Monpazier being one of the finest. The traditional architecture of the area is a constant delight: honey coloured stone, mellow red tiled roofs and on the grander buildings many 'pigeonniers' - pigeon towers and turrets.
This is one of the gastronomic areas of France, having many excellent restaurants, most very good value for money, serving local specialties such as confit d'oie or canard. You will discover the delicious and legendary pruneaux from Agen. Another important element of this region is it's wines. The wines from Bergerac are excellent, while Monbazillac is a truly delicious dessert wine, not to mention Bordeaux & Duras wines. The local walnut aperitif and liquer must also be tasted.
The climate is delightful, the spring arrives early in March as nature treats you to a wonderful array of blossom and a multitude of fresh pastel colours.
Altogether this historic part of France with it's rural life, busy markets and beautiful climate provides the most relaxing and rewarding holiday experience.
There are several lakes to visit with sandy beaches, ideal for swimming, windsurfing and sailing, the best complete with pedaloes, and canoes for hire and a thrilling watershute complex. Tennis can be played in Seyches and fishing and horseriding are readily available nearby. Three good golf courses are within a half hour drive, the best being an 18 hole competition course overlooking the beautiful lake at Casteljaloux.
There is a market in a nearby town every day of the week and during the summer night markets also. There are many festivals to enjoy, from the strawberry festival in May to music, art, antique, wine and food festivals - all details may be found at the local tourist office in Miramont for Lot et Garonne and Eymet for Dordogne.

"Great base to enjoy rural France at it[--]s best, excellent facilities, peace and tranquility."
Great pool, walking distance to village where local hotel provides excellent food, 4 courses @ 12 euros including wine. Good base to visit bastide towns. Numerous golf courses, beware fast greens!!. Damouran is peacefull, appeals to all age groups. We enjoyed collecting apricots and figs for breakfast from the garden. Early morning and late evening you could see Roe deer feeding in nearby maize fields.

"An Amazing Farmhouse and Pool in rural France."
What an amazing place! Beautifully restored and furnished to a high standard with everything we could possibly want to make our holiday so special. We all loved the open space and pool to play around all day.
A wonderfully relaxing holiday enjoyed by all 8 of us - with beautiful countryside and sunflowers as far as the eye could see. A 25 minute walk into town with its pattiserie, boucherie, post office, tabac, and hotel/restaurant was all we needed after shopping in Marmande or Miramont at the supermarkets. The local market was amazing too!
Thank You Linley for sharing your Farmhouse with us and for making our holiday so easy and straightforward. We hope to visit you again sometime soon.
