About this property

Idyllic Holiday In A Beautiful Stone Barn. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

Domaine de Seguinet is a small private estate comprising just three restored holiday homes (sleeping 12, 5 & 5) and set in over 18 acres of beautiful grounds including an orchard, mill stream, lake and bordered by the picturesque River Lemance.
 
Behind the manor house is the restored 2 and a half bedroom The Apartment, perfectly situated facing into the grassy courtyard with an antique centre piece fountain. With lovely stone steps leading upto the cosy converted barns, it sleeps 5. We are happy to offer 'wild swimming' in our own lake (water tested) to visitors staying in The Apartment.
 
Seguinet is situated in the heart of the Aquitaine region 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.
 
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 restaurants in Pujols (40 mins) & Agen (40 mins).
