Bertot Bas is a luxurious property, with the finest of finishes and the utmost attention to detail. It is located in a very sought after and popular area of Monflanquin. Ideal for an unforgettable holiday with the luxury and comfort of a home.
Bertot Bas has been built with style and thought from start to finish. The private pool is heated and an absolute joy to swim in.
Four spacious bedrooms, an inviting lounge, a very generous dining/kitchen with fully fitted and equipped modern kitchen with access onto a sunny terrace that leads onto the pool area.
This beautiful property features a spacious, sun-drenched poolside just a step away from the property. The private secluded pool is 10 x 5 and surrounded with a beautiful garden.
Aquitaine’s reputation as a varied and enchanting destination is well-earned – whether you’re looking for relaxation or excitement, this beautiful part of south-western France is a feast for every one of the senses.
The area is perhaps the France that you always hoped existed but could never quite find - medieval villages and sunflower fields, quiet roads and small farms in gently rolling countryside. One of the 'best kept secrets' in France!
For the real taste of Summer in France, then don’t miss one of the ‘Marché Gourmand Nocturn’ (evening market). This is dining ‘al fresco’ as it should be. Select somewhere to sit at the one of the many trestle tables, then browse the stalls selling local cooked meats and produce, from which you can make your selection of a meal. To accompany this, choose a bottle of wine from one of the local wine producers. Why not finish by having a crepe, fresh fruit, gateau or ice cream. The ambiance deepens as the entertainment gets going and you may even get to your feet to dance a step!
Fully-fitted with all modern accessories for the perfect party of 8 (and actually seats 10). The Farmhouse style kitchen is fitted with a luxurious Falcon cooker.
Luxury living area with space and views to the pool and garden. The pictures don’t do it justice, you have to see it for yourself!
There are four large bedrooms, 2 twins and 2 doubles. All bedrooms have en suite facilities.
There are 4 large en suite bathrooms.
Underfloor central heating to be enjoyed all year round if necessary.
Beautiful landscaped garden with views across to a forest area.
Private parking area for 5 or more cars.
8 years ago we moved to France with the intention of retiring. We started to do a little bit of Summer work to help keep us in contact with the locals. To our surprise this grew into a succesful business looking after houses i.e. gardening, pool upkeep, property security but has now grown into a full time business. Owners of these properties began to ask whether we advertised for holiday lets which gave us the idea of holiday rentals so I took the opportunity to have a go. It has been a big hit!

|Why this location?||Monflanquin is an old bastide town with winding streets and fabulous views. All amenities are in the village including a large supermarket, cafés, restaurants, and bakeries. There is a street market every Thursday morning, a must visit!
The Lot et Garonne area of France is one of the most beautiful and one of the most popular. Lovely countryside interspersed with medieval, bastide towns and fairytale châteaux rise from the morning mist.
It is a great region for food lovers; all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie and canard, mushrooms of all types are in abundance.
There are many antique markets throughout the year. All info at the Tourist Information office.
Bergerac which is not far away was once a flourishing port for the wine trade. It still today has a picturesque harbour where you can take a boat trip along the river Dordogne, or a miniature train ride around the Bastide town, viewing the many half timbered houses with terracotta decoration.
|Unique benefits of property||Situated in an ideal location in the countryside, it is perfect for those who like walking and enjoying the beautiful scenery, or just relax and soak up the sunshine by the swimming pool and be amazed by stunning views.
A beautiful manoir house with private swimming pool, situated not far from the medieval town of Monflanquin. The pretty town has a centre square with surrounding timber framed properties and dates back to 1256, with a varied and interesting history. Each summer a medieval fete takes place and around the centre square are cafes and restaurants and amazing views at the top by the church. At the base of the town are shops.
This upmarket beautiful architect designed home is ideal to escape to the rural countryside with complete privacy and peace.
A great way to tour the vineyards is by following the designated Route des Vins where the visitor will be welcomed by the growers and encouraged to try their wines. The Bergerac region is sometimes called Perigord Pourpre, the name deriving from the rich purple-red wines that characterize this area of Perigord.
When the subject of 'gastronomy' is raised it is usually associated with a particular region and the Perigord stands in high regard in this field. The traditional produce, such as truffles, walnuts, strawberries and the wines, together with the well-known rich specialties derived from fattened geese and ducks, is largely responsible for this fame.
Château Lanquais is 30 minutes from Bergerac and is great for the kids; it still has great cannonball holes in the side walls from an attack, and a removable wooden stair case. Open all day every day in July/August.
Don't miss a trip to La Roque-Gageac, a stunningly beautiful village under the towering cliffs. The village regularly wins France's 'Prettiest Village' competition. There is a good canoeing centre here.
Competing with La Roque-Gageac in the prettiness stakes is the village of Carennac. Elevated just above the South bank of the Dordogne river, it is best known for its typical Quercy architecture and Romanesque priory. Further Romanesque art at the Saint-Pierre church in Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.
Perhaps the most famous of the Dordogne tourist attractions are the cave paintings around Les Eyzies. There are more pre-historic caves in this area than you could ever visit in a day! Les Eyzies lies at the heart of an unspoilt area of great natural beauty with rolling hills, tranquil rivers and fascinating cliff and rock formations. It has some of the world's most beautiful caves with outstanding stalactite and stalagmite crystallizations.
The cave-lined Vézère Valley has been classified as a heritage site by UNESCO. The most well-known of all is the cave at Lascaux which was discovered in 1940.
