Holiday Homes In France
Traditional House with pool in the Lot et Garonne
Near Laparade, between Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Agen
House and Dovecote: 5 and 1 bedrooms, sleeping 10 + 2 people
The house is close to the tiny 13th century hilltop village of Laparade, about 5 km from the charming village of Clairac, situated in over three hectares with lovely open views of the surrounding hills. A family house, pleasant and comfortable; perfect for family and friends. Laparade, Clairac and the village of Castelmoron, 5 km in the other direction, each have their own individual history and a charm of their own.
Laparade has sublime views over the river valley, a restaurant and in July and August, a night market every Tuesday evening, which attracts people from far and wide, where you can sit at tables overlooking the valley and choose anything to eat at various stalls there, from barbecued steak and spit roasted chicken, salads, melons, bread, chilled wine, paella and kebabs to plump garlic snails or just an omelette. The evening usually finishes with a band and dancing. Clairac and Castelmoron both have a choice of local shops and Tonneins (20 minutes) and Villeneuve sur Lot (40 minutes) have large supermarkets and a greater selection of shops.
The ground floor of the house has a large sitting room with a fireplace and a mezzanine, a small salon with a fireplace, a kitchen and a double bedroom, a bathroom and a separate wc. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher and washing machine, a microwave, hob, fridge and coffee maker. There is also television and a h-fi system.
Upstairs are 4 further bedrooms, 1 double, 2 twin and one with both a double and a single bed. The double room has an en suite shower room, the other rooms share a bathroom with bath and a second shower room. There is also a separate wc.
The terrace faces South and has been the scene of many family suppers and there is garden furniture. The pool is large, terraced and has lovely views over the countryside.
Behind the house is a dovecote with a small sitting room and kitchenette and a double bedroom, which many be taken together with the house.
Our neighbours have riding stables and will arrange accompanied treks, there is a 9-hole golf course at Tombeboeuf (15 km), which has a pro shop and club hire and tennis courts in Castelmoron, which anyone can use. Ten minutes away is a microlite centre with an excellent restaurant and you can hire canoes in Temple sur Lot, again 10 minutes away.
A day out will take you through a countryside scattered with orchards to medieval villages like Monflanquin, Villeréal and up into the Dordogne to others such as Monpazier. Pujols, on the hill above Villeneuve-sur-Lot, has several good restaurants and is a delight to walk around. In July, Aiguillon holds a huge Jazz festival.
