The Owner Recommends

Night markets

Our village is very quiet and relaxing, lovely walks and views to enjoy, but the area comes alive in the evenings, in the bastide towns around, local produce is cooked to eat out in the squares, tables and chairs are all laid out each evening and there is live music and dancing in to the night.

Vineyards

The area is famous for its wines, each has its own tour, from the famous St Emilion, to small local producers.

Electric Bikes

Its a new way to explore the area for those not as fit as they would like, the bikes can be delivered to the house for all the family to use while you are here.
