Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

The Aquitaine, an ancient English possession dating back to the Plantagenets, is charged with history and evidence of the past is everywhere in hte remarkably well-preserved architecture of all sorts, from Romanesque churches, 12th-century villages and fine Renaissance châteaux, to wattle and daub barns and dovecotes. The region runs from the Southern Atlantic coast (Biarritz), up through the sandy beaches of the Landes to Bordeaux and its area and inland to take in the Dordogne and Lot-et-Garonne. Brousseau is on the border of these last two départements so is perfect for exploring the decorated prehistoric caves of the Périgord and enjoying the local gastronomy of the area. The wines of Bordeaux and Bergerac need no introduction, nor do the delicious fat duck specialities, cep mushrooms, truffles and walnuts sourced locally.

The climate is hot and sunny, with July 14th to August 15th usually enjoying a heatwave. Spring comes early here and Easter is a popular time to visit. Winters are generally mild until after Christmas with January and February usually the coldest months. Autumn is a particularly lovely time of year, still warm and sunny until end of October at least, and a great opportunity to sample local edible fungi at one of the mushroom markets.

There are many ways to explore the area, from rambling and cycling, to horse, horse and cart, horse and caravan, river boat or even hot-air balloon. An absolute favourite is canoeing, some routes taking you past the most beautiful châteaux of the area.

Castillonnes

Brousseau is within easy driving of several charming old market towns (villages really): the bastides of Castillonnès and Villeréal, frequented by the English since the 12th century, medieval Issigeac and a little further away, the picturesque hilltop villages of Monflanquin and Monpazier and, to the West, Eymet. All these villages put on a packed menu of events throughout the holiday season and beyond. The area caters for the many English and foreign retirees living here part or full time and English is more or less well spoken everywhere although the locals will be delighted if you'd rather practise your French.
The lake at nearby Lougratte offers windsurfing and many villages around organise trotting races, a delightful afternoon or evening out with a small flutter on the horses if you wish!
