We have lived and worked in London for many years in the financial sector. Some time ago we decided that we would like to enjoy a slower pace of life, so we had the idea of running our own gite complex in France. After a long search we found this beautiful property and we are now living here at Domaine Les Pruniers and we couldn't be happier!
|Year property purchased||2015|
|Why this location?||We have visited SW France many times over the years, initially the Dordogne area and the Atlantic coast. A few years ago we discovered the Lot et Garonne and fell in love with its tranquility and sublime natural beauty and also for its wide variety of lively bastide towns and villages, markets, chateaux and vineyards. We decided that we would like to live here and when we found this property our dream came true. For keen golfers there is an attractive 9 hole par 38 course in Tombeboeuf which is only 5km from us, with club and buggy hire available. There is also a highly recommended 18 hole golf course at Villeneuve-sur-Lot, which is about 25km away.There are many gentle walks and hikes within easy reach and there are also many cycle paths, we are close to both the Route Vert and the Velo Route. Les Pruniers is very close to the Lot river and it is a just a short drive to the many towns dotted along the banks offering water activities such as kayaking and canoeing.|

We have returned from a magical trip to this part of France. The owners were delightful and couldn't have done more to help. The accommodation was 5 star and spotless. The pool and facilities were fantastic. I would certainly recommend this property.
This was the fourth time we have stayed at the property. We com back each year as it is very well maintained and well appointed. The kitchen and living area is well spec’d. There is plenty of outside space on the decking, which has patio furniture, a large dining table, and a barbecue. It is only a few seconds walk to the pool area which has sunbeds and parasols. I scored local amenities lower as it is 5 km to the local shop and bakers. Other than that, it is a great rural getaway.
