HOLIDAY HOME WITH LARGE POOL IN BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

Verteillac Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 10

This self-catering holiday home is a restored 19th century farmhouse standing on a hill overlooking an attractive valley. It has a sunny south-facing courtyard flanked by two large barns and the 1.5 acre plot includes garden areas with a variety of fruit trees including apple, plum, fig, damson, mirabelle, quince and walnut. Below the small meadow is a large 12m x 6m fenced swimming pool with self-closing gates and underwater lighting. The property has received a '5 Globes' award from World One Call for eight years running. This is their highest award and is based on feedback from guests who have stayed there.

If you like peaceful countryside, good food and wine and bustling French markets, start here! Angouleme, Brantome, Cognac, Perigeux and all the great wine-growing areas around Bordeaux (of which St Emilion is probably the most attractive) are easy to reach by car.

The Atlantic coast is less than 2 hours drive away; and the caves of the Dordogne are about an hour and a half away -a marvellous trip for a rainy day. Also within easy reach there are plenty of tennis courts, and rivers and lakes to swim or fish or boat in.

Golf: There is a 9 hole golf course in an attractive leisure complex about 15 minutes away which also has tennis courts and a swimming pool. Perigueux (40 minutes) and Cognac (50 minutes) also have very good 18 hole courses.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

Having used other rental properties in France for over ten years, yours was the best equipped, organised and laid out that we have ever stayed in. We have all decided that we would like to return next year.....Your house was perfect. We liked everything about it; its beautiful setting, the spacious pool, plenty of room to play boule and croquet or to find a quiet place to read.

LOVELY, RELAXING STAY WITH AMAZING POOL.

  • 5 of 5
We have now visited for two years running and are going back for a third. The property is spacious with beautiful grounds. The pool is amazing, secure and safe for families with young children(we have 3) Lots of space to run around, build dens, play football. Jeremy always helpful and his guide to the area is excellent. A home from home.

PERFECT HOUSE FOR A FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful property set in lovely countryside. It ticked all the boxes for a perfect family holiday; we stayed with friends (there were four adults and six children aged from 12 months to 9 years) and the accomodation worked really well for us. The gardens and pool are stunning, with lovely views. The owner, Jeremy, was very helpful, likewise his local caretaker/gardener Terry. We wouldn't change anything (except the hornet that stung me!) and hope to return soon. A special mention for the huge mulberry bush in the garden - we've never met such an amazing tree, there were more mulberries than we could eat (and we ate a lot!).

HOME FROM HOME- BUT BETTER!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful place to stay. We were a group of two families, including 5 children aged 2 to 9. La Cotte is so spacious and well equipped that we never felt on top of each other. It is secluded and private. The children loved the beautiful pool (and with a safety fence so did the parents!) and there was so much space for them to run around in. My 9 year old son set up his portable football goal in the garden behind the house and got lost there for hours each day! The house itself has every single thing you could ever need, even a pot big enough for me to cook Beef Bourguignon for 9 on the last evening! The village of Verteillac is close enough for a croissant breakfast run each morning (and worth it!) and is beautiful as are the nearby towns of Brantome, Bourdeilles and Aubeterre. However, it is was difficult prising the children (and husbands!) away from the pool and the garden and the table tennis to get them to go anywhere. The owners are lovely and the wealth of information that they provided was very much appreciated. We didn't want to leave. We will be back!

LOVELY FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic holiday at La Cotte. The property was clean, spacious, very well-equipped and comfortable - it really did feel like a 'home from home'. I'd definitely recommend it to families with young children. We were 2 families with 6 children between us under the age of 7. Needless to say, we spent a lot of time in the fantastic pool (which was fenced with a safety gate) and playing table tennis, and the courtyard garden was a perfect play space. The owner provided an extra cot and highchair, and there were plenty of games and toys to keep the kids happy. Wifi was also a big plus for the adults! Definitely the best place we've stayed in in France.

A BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fantastic week at this wonderful rural retreat. The pre-arrival information was extremely detailed and useful. The property and garden were tidy, clean and welcoming. The children were very impressed by the well stocked playroom/barn and table tennis. The pool was beautiful. As a property it had just about any creature comfort we could think of. We were two familes totalling 10 and La Cotte had the perfect space to accomodate us all. We were comfortably able to sit and eat either inside or outdoors. It was a small drive each day to collect the bread and croissants but well worth the drive. The local villages and towns were beautiful for a small excursion and there were multiple activities for all ages. We will definitely go back.
