*SEPTEMBER DEALS* now available, please enquire. Gite Gardes is a recently renovated 3 bedroom stone barn set in 9 acres of gardens with beautiful views across the valley to the medieval bastide village of Monflanquin (classified as l'un des plus beaux villages de France). A rural location but within easy access to local shops and services, this is the Ideal base for a family holiday, or a group of friends to explore the glorious Dordogne, Lot, Garonne and Tarn valleys.

The accommodation is all on one level and includes 2 king size bedrooms with shared en-suite walk-in (roll-in) shower room and one twin bedroom with wash basin. A double sofa bed is also available for additional guests. The separate family bathroom includes roll top bath with stunning views across the valley to Monflanquin.

The living area flows into the spacious and well equipped modern kitchen, with its own breakfast table. Facilities include cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine and iron and ironing board.

Large patio doors lead out from the kitchen onto the private and secluded outdoor dining terrace and barbecue area set in a walled garden with ancient bread ovens. The stunning views across the wooded valley make this a wonderful space for relaxing with family and friends.

Three charming stone archways lead out to the private south facing sunbathing area with private heated pool (pool heated May - October) and games room. There is also a swing set for younger children as well as a badminton net and table football.

The owners live on site in a separate building, but guests are welcome to explore the nine acres of land which is a mix of woodland, prairie and more formal gardens, for peaceful walks and wildlife spotting.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We spent two lovely weeks in this charming house. The accommodation exceeded expectations based on past French rentals; we were greeted with spacious rooms, comfy beds and stacks of fluffy towels. Our arrival was delayed and the owners were thoughtful in leaving us an arrival snack with wine. Jim and Jo are the perfect hosts and discreetly onhand when you need them. They have put a lot of thought into their property and it is well stocked from the kitchen to outdoor living with everything you could think of. There is wildlife in abundance from hummingbird hawkmoths to the daily circle of red kites overhead as you lounge in the sunshine. The pool was great and a good length unlike many you find and well used by all of us. We particularly loved the outdoor walled dining area looking out over the countryside. There is plenty to do from the nearby village of Monflanquin with a great village square lined with restaurants and it's weekly markets, to exploring days out further afield. With two teenage boys we enjoyed canoeing up the river Lot, visiting chateaux, wine tasting, high wire adventure park, underground grotto by boat, feeding wild macaque monkeys, playing tennis, playing golf, eating outdoors with locals at the evening market, self guided village tour, trout fishing and enjoying a 10lb trout on the BBQ and of course the excellent French food and wine. There is something for everyone and I wouldn't hesitate from recommending this property.

Super !

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in gite Gardes for 2 weeks in mid june 2014.

The house is very well suitable for a wheelchair (very spacious rooms, little ramp at the front door, no steps inside the house and a shower that was big enough for a chair).
The kitchen is well equiped.
The view on Monflanquin from within the master bedroom is exceptional.
A bakery, a supermarket, restaurants ... are just a 5 minute car-drive away.

We were lucky to have very nice weather so we could have breakfast on the terrace just outside the kitchen.
Afterwards we cooled down in the pool. In the evening the kids went playing on the swing and the slide.
(In case you have little kids: be aware that they can go directly from the kitchen to the pool)

Besides all that Jim & Jo will do everything they can to give you an enjoyable stay.

Lot-et-Garonne is a more rural environment with some castles and bastides nearby. It is not the coolest place to be, but ideal if you want a relaxing time.

Summary: the house is highly recommandable ! It's one of the best gites we found in France sofar.

Gite Gardes

  • 5 of 5
We rented Gite Gardes for two weeks in October 2013. The Gite was exactly as described and in perfect condition having been recently renovated to a high standard. The area was very peaceful and attractive and the view of Monflanquin was exceptional. Of utmost importance to us was wheelchair accessibility and this Gite, unlike some that claim to be "wheelchair friendly", was a truly accessible facility with no steps, large clear floor spaces and a good size roll in shower.

The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, not only with suggestions for site seeing, but also helping with some personal requests. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

The area around Monflanquin is extremely picturesque, with plenty of old villages with very nice restaurants and chateaus.

We would not hesitate to recommend this gite to friends and relatives and in particular anyone with mobility issues.

Within easy access to the Dordogne, Lot, Garonne and Tarn valleys, there is plenty to see and do whatever your interests and age and whatever the time of year.

You can explore numerous bastide villages (e.g. Monflanquin, Monpazier, Villereal), medieval towns (e.g. Penne d'Agenais, Pujols, Bergerac, Sarlat, Beynac, Domme), chateaux (e.g. Biron, Bonaguil, Gavaudun, Monbazillac, Beynac, Castelnaud, Bridoire), caves including those with prehistoric cave paintings and dwellings (e.g Lascaux, Font de Gaume, Roque St-Christopher, Pech-Merle), vineyards of the Cahors, Bergerac and Bordeaux regions, producers of other local products (e.g. duck, prunes, honey, walnuts, truffles), gardens (e.g. Marqueyssac, Limeuil, Eyrignac).

Alternatively you can enjoy activities such as walking and cycling (there are numerous well signed and maintained routes with clear mapping available), swimming in local lakes and rivers, fishing, canoeing, boat trips, horse riding, quad biking, sky parks, animal parks, tennis, golf etc.

Monflanquin is less than 5km from the Gite (50 minute countryside walk) and has all amenities including supermarket, boulangeries, weekly local produce market, restaurants, bars, pharmacy, doctors, banks and post office. In July and August many local villages in the area, including Monflanquin have weekly night markets where you can enjoy local food and wine sat at communal tables in the village square listening to music and other entertainment. A great opportunity to become immersed in local village life.

The town of Villeneuve sur Lot is 20km away and has even more extensive amenities and shopping, including hyper-markets and a Michelin star restaurant.
