This is a beautifully renovated traditional French barn with stone walls, flagstone floors and exposed beams. All of the bathrooms have modern walk-in showers and there are plenty of baby baths available. There is also a good amount of space for the five cots that are available to use.

  • Five bedrooms – all en suite – sleeping up to eleven in total (not counting babies in cots)
  • One double bedroom downstairs with canopy bed
  • One twin and one triple bedroom, plus two more doubles upstairs
  • Large American style kitchen with double range cooker and dishwasher
  • Open plan sitting room and dining room
  • Downstairs utility room with loo, washing machine and dryer
  • Wi-Fi and UK satellite television are available
  • Plenty of children’s toys to play with

Parent Point:

  • A door leads from the kitchen/dining area directly to the pool but has a key code on it for safety.


There is a huge garden with outdoor toys and play sets that your kids will love.

But it’s the freshwater swimming pool that is the star of the show. Fully enclosed and with a special cleaning system that doesn’t use salt or chlorine, it is particularly child friendly - no stinging eyes here.

A gently sloping beach entry is perfect for little splashers to paddle in. The pool itself is 2 metres at its deepest and features a current machine for exercising and a hydro massage bench.

There are multiple loungers, a hammock to laze in, barbecue and an outdoor dining area to enjoy the breath-taking valley views with a glass of something cold. Note that the pool is shared with the adjoining Mansion House, where the hosts operate an upmarket guesthouse.

A spa area alongside the pool features a Jacuzzi, sauna, showers and exercise equipment.

Parking for up to three cars is available to gite residents.

Parent Points:

  • The garden is not fully enclosed, although you would have to go a long way to leave the premises as it leads to fields and vineyards
  • In the field at the very bottom of the garden you'll find the resident pig.  He has an electrified fence around him so children will need to be attended here
  • There is a covered and locked well, a pool pump and a few trip hazards in the garden that children should be steered away from
  • A flight of stone steps leading from the pool to the Mansion House isn’t gated

  • Head out straight from the property on one of the many bikes available, including children’s seats. Take a picnic and explore this beautiful countryside and the fields of sunflowers dotting your route
  • Less than 10 minutes drive is the pretty riverside town Castelmoron-Sur-Lot. Visit the market on Wednesdays for fresh produce. It’s your closest town for supplies, cafés and restaurants
  • The stunning riverside beach at Clairac is a 20 minute drive. Kids will love paddling in the shallows or dive-bombing off the pontoon
  • Pujols, named as one of France’s most beautiful villages, is worth the 30 to 40 minute drive. This small, fortified medieval town is a charming place to wander around, with beautiful old houses and a covered market
  • Just across the river from Pujols is Villeneuve-sur-Lot, which holds outdoor music festivals along the river on Wednesday evenings during summer
  • Parc Walibi in Agen (50 minutes drive) is a large amusement park that kids of all ages will love
  • For older kids, a treetop walk, mini golf, outdoor games and swimming at Parc en Ciel (45 minutes) is brilliant fun
  • There are plenty of wineries in the region including Duras, Buzet, Bergrac and Côtes du Marmandais. Ask your host for details on how to visit them
