The Owner Recommends

Brantome

The Venice of the Perigord, lovely town, with magnificent architecture, troglodyte museum, canoeing, swimming, and many lovely restaurants.

Acrobranching/Tree Climbing

There are many places nearby for tree climbing and zip wires. We like the beach at St Aulaye where you have climbing, canoeing, river beach and a cafe all in the same spot. Great if you have members of the family who do not fancy zip wiring across the river! They will be happy sipping a cold beer watching the kids swimming and playing on the beach.

Wine Tasting or Cognac Tours

Not far from St Emillion for the serious wine buffs or Cognac distilleries. You can also tour our local distillery for the regional tipple: Pineau.

Activities for Young Children

We are super family orientated and have lots to do on-site for all ages. The little ones are well catered for with a sandpit, swings and slide, paddling pool, bouncy castle, wendy house, tractors and push alongs. We have a large number of bikes, two of which with baby seats.
There are 10 acres to safely explore with a wild flower maze where they can catch butterflies.
Highchairs, cots, stairgates, bed guards etc. all available free of charge.
The Private Fishing lake is a short walk from the property so doesn't pose a risk and the swimming pool is properly fenced with a child proof locking gate.
Babysitting service available.
