|La Bidonne Gite||Self Catering||Saturday||2||3||1|
A beautiful self-contained gite with stunning views set in 14 acres with exclusive use of the swimming pool and private fishing lake. The tranquil setting at the end of a small lane makes it an ideal getaway for couples or a safe secure environment for families with children.
The well-appointed gite is attached to the end of a restored 200 year old farmhouse, making it private and fully self-contained with full oil fired central heating if required.
St. Remy is situated between the market towns of St. Foy La Grande and Montpon. We are surrounded by forests providing excellent walking, horse riding and cycling.
The Dordogne is famous for its wine, climate and history and La Bidonne Gite is ideally situated to sample them all. The towns of Bergerac, Perigueux and the famous vineyards of St. Emilion are all within 30 minutes’ drive. Bordeaux with its beautiful architecture, great shops and restaurants is 50 minutes away.
There are lovely nearby lakes for swimming, beaches for relaxing, take river boat trips and visit chateaux and museums. Shopping in the local markets is a must and there is one on each day in the different nearby towns.
Fully-fitted dining kitchen with cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, dining table and chairs.
Comfortable lounge with new sofa (which can be made into a 4ft bed) and chairs, coffee-table and UK tv.
Large double bedroom with double bed and a single bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables. Additional optional cot.
Single bedroom with single bed, bedside table and hanging cupboard.
To sleep 4 an additional single bed is necessary in the double bedroom. The single bedroom and bathroom are both directly of the main bedroom.
Luxury bathroom with shower cubical, toilet, bidet and washbasin.
Full oil fired central heating.
UK tv, dvd player (no dvds), books and games.
Directly outside the gite is a lovely shaded patio with table and chairs, bbq, and sunloungers.
In the expansive and enclosed gardens there is a fully fenced swimming pool (11m x 4m) which is exclusively for our guests. It enjoys full sun and is lit for evening swimming. Sunloungers, parasols and pool towels are provided.
We have created a private well stocked fishing lake of about 1 acre. There you will find a summer house with table and chairs, great for a picnic after woodland walks.
Parking available adjacent to the gite.
The gite is suitable for couples or families but not suitable for disabled persons.
A free grocery 'welcome pack' is provided.
La Bidonne Gite is a fantastic base to explore the delights of the Dordogne area. Dee and Paul were great and knowledgeable hosts for our two week stay. Of course, the near 100% sunshine helped. We were able to have all our meals outside.
We had some wonderful trips to Bergerac, St Emillion, Lac de Gurson, Chateau Bridoire, Eymet, Issigeac, Duras and Village Bournat. In addition we went for a ride to Oradour-sur-Glane near Limoges to visit the memorial village.
The gite was immaculate with UK TV (if you want it), WiFi and a pool which we made good use of. Down the road is Montpon Menesterol which has all the facilities like supermarkets etc. I hired a bike to explore the endless back lanes, only really getting slightly lost once which added a few enjoyable kilometres to that day's ride.
We would without hesitation highly recommend this gite and holiday.
Many thanks to Dee and Paul for making us so welcome and for the home grown vegetables!
Thanks for taking the time to give us a review
This is a really nice peaceful location with well equipped cottage in clean condition with a nice pool and excellent carp fishing in there own lake, the owners made us very welcome and could not do enough to make our stay successful.
We are planning to return in the future
A wonderful gite with all you could ask for. Paul and Dee were wonderful hosts who always offered to go the extra mile to ensure that the holiday was memorable and that every need was met. Nothing was too much trouble. At the same time, our privacy was ours - totally unobtrusive, but there for any handy tips or questions. The environment was perfect - relaxing and quiet, great for nature, medieval villages and also in easy reach of city life. Pool is gorgeous and we are missing it already!
