About this property

Fabulously restored manoir with heated pool sleep 12. This villa is in a village setting.

Situated in the heart of the Aquitaine region Seguinet is on the borders of the rivers Lot, Garonne and Dordogne. It is a 10 min drive from Fumel where there are many large supermarkets, restaurants and shops. Numerous famous bastide towns and chateaux are nearby and well worth a visit. Belves, Monflanquin, Monpazier, Villefranche-du-Perigod, Issigeac and Chateau de Biron to mention just a few. The beautiful town of Sarlat is only a 45 min drive away. Seguinet is a beautifully restored 'Maison de Maitre' offering peace and tranquility in 17 acres of private land. The house sits in a valley with the Lemance river bordering the property on one side. There is a lake, a pond and a mill race on the property with plenty of trout for fishing enthusiasts. The property is just off the D710 and yet feels totally secluded and private.
 
Arriving at Le Seguinet is so easy with Bergerac airport only an hours drive on a simple and easy to follow route. Bordeaux and Toulouse are also within an easy drive.
 
There is a strong gastronomic tradition in this area, eating out is part of the French way of life. Lunch time is the best value with three course lunch menu from around 12 euros including wine. Haute cuisine for gourmets, is also available and can be found locally, including the 1 Michelin star restaurant in Pujols (40 mins).  There are a couple of great restaurants in Gavaudun. Just 10 min drive away you can sit in one of the two restaurants at the foot of the stunning Chateau de Bonaguil.
 
With an extensive knowledge of the surrounding areas we are happy to provide you with information on what to do and where to go during your stay with us. The countryside with the river Lot just a 10 min drive away at Fumel, is fabulous for canoeing, hiking, cycling, golfing and swimming.

We had the most fantastic two weeks in August at Le Seguinet. We were a group of 19 family and friends plus a dog, with age span from 6 months to 70. The house was exactly as described and despite turning up a good few hours early we were warmly welcomed and given a tour. We took over all three properties which worked perfectly for our group and enjoyed fun around the pool all together and big meals on the beautiful terrace as well as quiet times alone or in smaller groups when the mood took us. The pool was a good size and was cleaned every morning by the pool fairy who had always visited before we had woken up.

The main house was well set out with two wings giving each family a bit of space. The rooms overlooking the pool all had en suite shower rooms and on the other side the three rooms shared a lovely large family bathroom. The beds were incredibly comfortable and all rooms were spacious.

The discovery of the newly created games room was a huge bonus and the older children enjoyed trying their hands at air hockey, pool and darts when not lounging on the sofas making the most of the strong wifi signal in the room!

We had researched the area before arriving and had planned some days out but the weather was so amazing we ended up staying put and loving every minute. We would highly recommend Le Seguinet to anyone looking for space to house a large group where you won't end up on top of each other. Looking forward our next visit.
