Description from owner

Cante Perdit (which means either “Lost Song” or “Bird Song” in Occitan, depending on who you ask) is in the middle of farming country in South West France. Access to the property is down a private drive that takes you through small woods, making the almost two acre property extremely private and tranquil.

Cante Perdit is a lovingly restored 18th century farmhouse. The large terrace leads into the main living room, which opens into the traditional kitchen and dining area, with a table that extends to seat 14 comfortably. After the cloakroom and hallway leading to the laundry, is a second living area with a sofa bed, three large and tastefully decorated bedrooms, and two modern bathrooms. Upstairs is the fourth bedroom and a mezzanine overlooking the living area.

The private and secluded pool is swimmable from May through September (although braver souls might want to enjoy it in April or October as the air temperature is usually in the low 20s during these months). Winter is also very

The private and secluded pool is swimmable from May through September (although braver souls might want to enjoy it in April or October as the air temperature is usually in the low 20s during these months). Winter is also very appealing because of the peace and the wildlife, including families of deer, birds of prey, and our neighbourhood herons. Temperatures can drop below zero, but usually the days are crisp and clear so snuggling up in front of the large open fireplace after long walks through the woods makes for an ideal winter’s day.

The stunning bastide town of Monflanquin is a five minute drive away. There are a variety of other lovely medieval towns all within half an hour’s drive, which means that there is a wonderful market within easy access every day of the week, a good selection of restaurants and shops, plus sporting facilities such as canoeing, horse-riding, tennis, golf and fishing. This area is also a haven for walkers and cyclists.

The Aquitaine region

The Lot et Garonne is the next department to the south of the Dordogne. The rural landscape of rolling hills is broken up by streams, rivers and woodland and dotted with medieval towns and villages. Grape vines and plum trees are interspersed with fields of wheat and sunflowers, making this area a beautiful part of France.

This area is the home of truffles, confit of duck and goose, fois gras, prunes, walnuts, and a variety of wines. The local markets and shops offer a sumptuous variety of these products, as well as other seasonal produce.

Spring and early Autumn are usually dry and pleasantly warm (high teens to low 20s), while Summer is dry and hot (usually high 20s to high 30s). Mid-Winter is crisp (mostly 0-10 degrees) but usually clear blue skies predominate.

Monflanquin

Monflanquin is 6 kms away and offers a range of restaurants and bars, catering to different tastes and budgets.

In every direction is a picturesque village or town, offering markets, restaurants, cafes, and bars. In summer, these towns and villages hold night markets, where local food and wine can be bought to be enjoyed in the town square.

Activities provided at or near these towns include: adventure park, badminton, ballooning, boating, boules, canoeing, cycling, fishing, French tuition, go-karting, golf, gourmet dining, horse riding, kayaking, pony rides, rowing, shopping, sightseeing, swimming, tennis, walking, and wine tasting.

“Stunning House and Setting”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2012

We stayed for an idyllic week in Cante Perdit, the house is absolutely stunning - it really is a dream home for anyone. The furnishings and decoration strike the right balance between luxury and homeliness, we literally stayed in each night as the house offered us everything we needed!! I would cycle to Monflaquinn (3 miles?) to pick up our baguette and croissants in the morning, bliss. We have a 3 year old son and a dog and both didnt want to leave, there was something for everyone and to be honest we didnt even need to do a dog walk as the garden was plentiful! Emma was fab and emailed us detailed directions along with info for the pet passport and local vets (who were great). Emma's mum and dad are local if you have any problems and a welcome pack on arrival and smiley face was very welcome after the long drive. I would thoroughly recommend the house to all ages, just wish we could live there all year!
