Location description from owner

The Aquitaine region

This is a popular region with its Bastide (Fortified) Towns which are steeped in history. There are beautiful views over rolling countryside. Many fantasitc tourist attractions. Local fetes, wine, food and historical festivals. Daily markets are to be found throughout the region in every town and many villages speciallising in local produce. There are also organic (Bio) markets held weekly and several of the bastide towns also have night markets which are very popular and great fun.
We are situated within easy reach of several wine regions. Some of the best wines in France can be found here and several chateaux hold wine tasting events through out the year.
The countryside is undulating and dotted with vines, soft fruit orchards, nut trees and sunflowers, The Lot and Garonne is more relaxing and cheaper than the busy Dordogne, Here we have the best of both worlds; a tranquil retreat to return to after a busy day sight seeing. There are many rivers for canoeing, prehistoric caves to investigate, many theme parks, karting, water parks..........and then return to a slice of paradise for a glass of wine and swim before dinner!
We have a wealth of information in the cottages to help you make the most of your stay in the area.







Miramont-de-Guyenne

We are located between Miramont de Guyenne (10mins) and Marmande (15mins). Miramont has a busy, bustling, Monday morning market which is excellent and sells an amazing array of goods, local produce including, cheeses, fruit and veg, fish, meat, wine, honey, deli, cooked chickens and roast potaoes! Ideal for a Monday lunch with a glass of local wine! There are also several restaurants, bars, cafes, banks, supermarkets with petrol stations, butchers, bakers, several hairdressers and a main post office, The local lake at Miramont with it's beach has been closed to swimmers, however, there is a quiet river beach with swimming and boating at Caslemoron, 15 minutes from the property, where there is also a Wednesday morning market, cafes, restaurants, a tea shop and a beautiful bridge spanning the River Lot. Certainly worth a visit!
Marmande is a larger town and has everything you would expect including a hospital with an A&E, cinemas, train station, with good links to Bordeaux, clothes/shoe shops, sports outlet (Decathlon) and many super and hyper markets. There are also local produce markets on Saturday. Brocante and flea markets can be found in the region.
The nearest village to Sevenne is 3 km and has a deli, boulangerie, post office, bar and haidressers. The tabac/grocer sells everything you could imagine! The shop is open 7 days a week 7am - 9pm non stop! She doesn't even close for lunch!

“Relaxing, welcoming, friendly, perfect for children to run wild”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2013

We had a really lovely week staying in Drake Cottage. Sandi & Mark were the perfect hosts, being friendly & chatty & extremely helpful, but just leaving us to get on with our own thing. they were not "hoverers!" Our children at the time were 2 1/2 & 5, and they had a lovely time - even though it was too cold to swim. They ran around the land, pond-watched, collected eggs, scooted about & generally enjoyed having freedom to play & run wild. This was before the sandpit, the trampoline & the ride-on toys: so if we went back, they would be in heaven! (particularly if it was warm enough to swim too!) I am sorry it has taken me a year to write this review, because it is well deserved, and we do plan to return in the future.

“Ideal place for a relaxing family holiday”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2013

What a beautiful place Sevenne is! We stayed in Drake Cottage which was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped with everything you could possible need. The cottage was spacious for four of us and very comfortable. The owners live in the house next door and their hospitality was wonderful. We arrived to a selection of homemade cakes and tea which was very welcome after a long journey. Sandie's attention to detail and persoanl touches around the place made all the difference. The grounds were lovely and tranquil and our children ( 11 and 13) loved collecting the hens eggs every morning. There was lots of equipment for outdoor activities and Sandie's silk making class was a hit! Sevenne is perfect for a relaxing break and we would certainly love to go back sometime. The only thing that could have been better was the weather, but unfortunately we can't order that!
