Overview

About the property

Farmhouse and annexe to let, maximum 7 people, minimum 4 people

A country farmhouse, situated in Gascony, in the middle of the Lomagne Canton, near the hill-top village of L’Isle Bouzon. Dating from the middle of the 18th century, this rustic residence consists of a main house and an annexe and has been restored with all modern comforts, but keeping the charm of old features for more authenticity. It is a true haven of peace with its enchanting English-style garden (2.5 acres of land), with over 350 scents, its orchard, its 40-plus rose bushes and a variety of aromatic plants.

It is the ideal place for nature lovers, searching for tranquillity. In the surroundings, you can visit some beautiful villages that occupy this hilly region, amongst others: Lectoure, a thermal and fortified town, La Romieu with its cloister and the famous St Jacques de Compostello walk, St Clar with its leisure centre and its parties in the 13th century hall, and Fleurance with its peasant market. Activities are plentiful such as walking, swimming, mountain biking, golf, typical Gascony evenings and village parties and even balloon rides.

The house itself contains a large main bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a second bedroom with an adjoining bathroom, a large main room with comfortable seating, a kitchen, a library, a conservatory and a partly-covered outdoor area, which is perfect for hot summer evenings with a fantastic view of the local village. The annexe contains two communicating bedrooms and a bathroom, making it ideal for teenagers or another couple.

The main house can accommodate four people and the house plus annexe six to seven. Lets are from Saturday to Saturday.

Please note that the house can be let on its own for a maximum of 4 people and discounted prices are applicable.

About The Owner

We are both from the Aquitaine region: Jean-Michel comes from Agen (famous for its plums and kiwis) and I come from the wonderful Dordogne, which so many Brits love!! I have spent 25 years in London, working there and I am missing my friends. We live in Bordeaux (a beautiful city) and enjoy spending our weekends in Gascony at the house. My partner works for Aviva and I work for a British company but based at home.

Why The Owner chose L'Isle-Bouzon

My partner, Jean-Michel and I bought that property two years ago. This house is for us a haven of peace and we hope that you too can enjoy the tranquility that it offers. We wanted to have somewhere that is cosy but has also character. I personally fell in love with that place. The garden is amazing, the last owners were real gardeners and they created the garden from scratch. The house itself has some unique features and we were told by friends and family that it has a good feel to it.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is only accessible via a private drive which is about 600 metres long (2000 feet approx). It is very quiet and extremely peaceful. You can hear hens and donkeys and of course birds, but very little else!

It is big enough so that you are not on top of each other and the garden is also big, so plenty of space around you. In the vicinity, especially in the middle of the summer there are hundreds of things to do and see, so I doubt you will get bored! Amazing food festivals in each villages, Jazz in Marciac, beautiful fortified villages to visit and many more things to do.
