Cottage overview - owner's description

A peaceful and charming retreat set in an elevated position overlooking some of the most beautiful French countryside in the region. Private Pool. Free Broadband WiFi connection

Unwind at this peaceful and charming retreat set in an elevated position overlooking some of the most beautiful French countryside in the region. Relax with a glass of local “Vin” while sunbathing in the beautiful garden as the children enjoy the day by the pool. Or visit any of the nearby picturesque Bastide towns, local markets, golf courses or leisure lakes. Then enjoy in the warm evening air, a BBQ of fresh local produce on the outdoor terrace by the pool but only if you do not wish to sample any of the fantastic local restaurants. As you will see from our guest book this really is the perfect family holiday in France.

Chante Merle is a rural farmhouse recently refurbished with all today’s comforts. Its style mixes the rustic charm of wooden beams and a wood burning fire, with a clean modern décor.
The house and swimming pool are private and secluded set within its own substantial mature garden. Yet being on the edge of a small village means it’s not remote.
The aspect of the house and pool look out over beautiful rolling countryside and commands a spectacular view.
The house is very spacious and can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people in a family party. All rooms are on ground level making easy access possible for those not so mobile.
All shops and facilities are just a short drive away.

The house is on the edge of the small charming village of Caubon which sits midway between the towns of Duras (12 Km)and Marmande, (11 Km) in the Lot et Garonne region. Duras with its large medieval Chateau and cobbles streets is an extremely popular attraction. There is a very good market here on Saturdays and Cave de Berticot the local wine producer is a must visit.
Marmande in the other direction is a town typical of real France. Pretty in its centre with many shops and activities, the town hosts 4 large supermarkets and several retail zones and any other facility you may need. Wine lovers will enjoy sampling the local grape of Cave du Beaupuy.
The Historic towns of Bergerac, St Emilion and Bordeaux, are all less than an hour away and the Atlantic coastal town of Arcachon only an hour and a half.

From Richmond Upon Thames, United Kingdom Sep 2008

Great location with lovely garden

From Northampton, United Kingdom Aug 2007

The grounds of the villa where well kept, the exterior of the villa could do with a lick of paint. The garden was very large and had wonderful views. I thought that it was advertised as having a secure garden but that was not the case. There were lots of escape routes for toddlers or children that like to escape! the pool was very good and looked after.

The internal of the villa was fine, there was plenty of room and it was well kitted out for your stay. I thought the welcome pack was a nice touch.

Villa was clean and well presented on arrival.
