About this property

Beautifully Restored and Converted Sechoir. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Fabulously presented property sleeping 6, plus an extra 2 in a comfortable sofabed downstairs with its adjoining wet room. It has the real wow factor and is located in a quiet and pretty hamlet near to the town of Marmande in the Lot et Garonne. It's been sympathetically converted from an agricultural tobacco barn originally built nearly 200 years ago, with all renovation works being completed recently. There's also the option of sleeping accommodation on the ground floor for those with a wheelchair or reduced mobility as the ground floor has a comfortable double sofa bed, its own wet room and wc and is all on one level with no steps, even out to the decked terrace. It's also perfectly located for exploring the many tourist attractions.

From its elevated position, the views of surrounding farmland and woodlands from the fabulous decked pool terrace are breathtaking and it's a perfect place to watch the sun set whilst relaxing and sampling one of the regions finest wines.

There are plenty of shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants in nearby Marmande. There's a bakery in Escassefort only a few minutes away, and the vineyards and small town of Duras with its famous château steeped in history are also nearby.

The Owner Recommends

Local Markets

The local markets are always worth a visit. Eymet's market is not to be missed and is on a Thursday, Miramont's market is on a Monday and the market at Issigeac on a Sunday is always very busy so try to get there early! Evening markets in the summer months are great to visit.

Beautiful Villages

The area is home to some of the most beautiful villages in France. Named as some of 'Les plus beaux villages de France', Belves, Beynac-et-Cazenac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, Domme, La Roque-Gageac, Monflanquin and Monpazier are all worth a visit.

Chateaux Visits

Head east of the property and visit the impressive chateaux of Biron, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle.

Beautiful Gardens

The Jardins de Marqueyssac are beautiful, and the view from the viewing platform across the Dordogne valley towards La Roque-Gageac is spectacular.

Vineyard Visits

There are many locally produced wines in the largest wine producing area of France, and perhaps the world! Visits to vineyards can be organised or winetasting can be arranged at this property by a local vigneron. There are signposted wine trails scattered around the area.
