About this property

Magnificent Views Of The Grounds. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Our two storied self-catering holiday gite. What sets the Edward's Tower apart is its first floor bedroom which is a superb vantage point for views across the gardens and valley towards the swimming pool and hamlet of Bourniquel.

Upstairs, the open-style floor layout lends an airiness that is welcome in the height of the summer, with ample built in storage and access to the en-suite bathroom. Once again, oak beams and chestnut wood ceilings are a constant reminder of the building’s heritage as one of the original structures at Domaine de Leygue.

The living room captures the essence of rural France, with a distinctive beamed ceiling, Provencal tiled floor, an impressive oak staircase, and French windows leading out to the veranda.

The oak kitchen has a generous set of Portmeirion Botanic Garden china, perfect for using at the antique wood dining table.

Watch the sunrise from your large private veranda, constructed by local artisans to match the existing architecture, facing the Pigeonnier swimming Pool and gardens of Domaine de Leygue.

Wonderful setting. First class accommodation. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Excellent solar heated pool. Well placed for exploring the Dordogne and Vézère. Lalinde just four minute away for croissants, supermarket, fuel etc. Lots of local markets in nearby villages (Bastides). Plenty of sites to explore prehistory, and early human cave artwork. Car necessary.
We would heartily recommend this property for adults who enjoy peaceful French lifestyle.
