About this property

Luxurious, Charming, Well Equipped Rural Idyll.. This villa is in a rural setting.

Luxurious and charming, this honey-stoned four-bedroom (sleeps 7 + cots) farmhouse with private pool enjoys a wonderfully tranquil location down its own sweeping tree-lined driveway with glorious, uninterrupted views of rolling meadows and verdant woodland in all directions.The house is superbly equipped and beautifully appointed, allowing you to make the very most of its glorious location.
Petit Manoir is within easy range of some of the most beautiful villages, vineyards and historic sites in Southwest France. The principal towns of Villeneuve sur Lot, Agen and Bergerac are all within easy driving distance, whilst the smaller bastide villages nearby provide all the essentials and offer weekly markets and fetes bursting with local produce. 
More family fun and even watersports can be found at a nearby riverside beach (sandy), which is just a 10-minute drive away, as well as at the Magic Cauldron eco-farm, named after the pot in which the mohair of 250 Angora goats is farm dyed! Little ones will love making friends with the animals, which they can touch and feed, including lambs and kids, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, turkeys, large Angora White rabbits, highland cattle and two of the largest, grubbiest pigs ever seen! You can also try your hand at cheese or bread making. There are riding stables nearby and the quiet lanes are ideal for exploring by bicycle.
Petit Manoir is an ideal base for a family holiday and is well located for many of the attractions of this region of France. It is also perfect for those who prefer to stay in one place and enjoy the open space, the silence and the ability to draw breath in this beautiful region of France.
