|Why this location?||There’s genuinely so much to see and do in the south west of France, Gironde and Aquitaine. Our farmhouse provides a superb location to take it all in, here’s a flavour of what there is to see and do. The undulating landscape of the Lot et Garonne has been likened to that of Tuscany. A rich architectural heritage that reflects its eventful history – castles, Romanesque churches, bastide towns and picturesque villages are everywhere that has much to offer lovers of culture and the countryside. We are within easy reach of the 12th-14th century Bastide towns of Eymet, Duras, Miramont de Guyenne and slightly further afield the acknowledged Monpazier. Brantome (visit the 9th Century Benedictine Abbey), Perigueux, Bordeaux (capital of Aquitaine), St Emilion are places you will remember and savour, well worth building into your itinerary. Lovely walks on the doorstep and we are close to lakes with great facilities (canoes, beaches, swimming, pedalos) just over an hours drive.|
