FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL, PRIVATE GOLF & FISHING

Sigoules Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8 plus baby

Les Vachers is a stone built farmhouse dating back to the 16C. The large veranda offers a covered dining area for those lazy barbecues. Both the terrace and pool are floodlit to extend those relaxing evenings outside. The house is spacious with a well equipped kitchen with a range style cooker. The two double bedrooms each have their own en suite bathrooms. It is in a peaceful location set in 10 hectares of land with a private nine hole pitch and putt course. The south facing pool overlooks the private fishing lake which is well stocked with large carp up to 20lbs. Use of both the golf course and fishing lake are included in your stay at no extra charge. The 18 hole public golf course and leisure complex of Chateau les Vigiers is less than 10 minutes away. This holiday villa with it's private pool is ideal for those family get togethers or groups of friends chilling out.

Tour de France passes through Eymet on 25th July, book now to see this fantastic event.

Fishing: The large well stocked lake offers carp, rud, roach and perch.

Carp of up to 20lbs have been caught in the lake. They have been well fed and offer easy fishing for children and fun for all the family. A large hunk of bread on the end of a line is normally all you need.

General Information: The summer season in the Dordogne offers hundreds of different events from town to town. Bergerac alone has 10 different events ranging from fireworks on the 14 July to long weekends of wine and food festivals. The local restaurants range from 4 couse set lunches with wine at 10 Euros to the 4 star restaurant at Chateau les Vigiers.

There is lots of information available and the owner is on hand to give you his personal advice.

Wine: Les Vachers is at the heart of the wine growing region. Bordeaux and St Emilion to the west and Bergerac to the north.

There are hundreds of wine producing chateaux in the area, many of whom offer free tasting. The owner is on hand to give his advice and to direct you to the award winning vineyards in the area.

Sigoules wine festival is the weekend 20/21 July 2013, lots of stalls offering free tastings.

Wonderful Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. Relaxation was the order of the day and Les Vachers was perfect for that. Lovely spacious character house. Nice and cool in the warm days, Great fishing and the golf was a bonus. the kids loved the pool and the dogs, and there were plenty of beds and bathrooms to go round. The facilities were excellent with loads of extras and Alan and Sandra were great hosts ...always on hand and very relaxed. Sigoules was no distance with couple of places to eat, market and a good supermarket. Bergerac is only 20 minutes if you want something more to do ...the Maison Du Vins is well worth a visit. A bit worried about recommending the place as we want to go back and want there to be places available !!!!

Brilliant holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous holiday in Les Vachers last week. The house is spacious and kept very clean. The pictures on the internet do not do this fairytale house justice. We felt like we truly lived in rural France for a week (with all comfort accounted for). Alan and Sandra are magnificent hosts and will look after you throughout your stay. The dogs are a bonus! Our kids already miss them after having returned to Holland just yesterday. Golf and fishing are a welcome extra, but even without these, the house is perfect.

We highly recommend this property to everyone. We hope to return with our family next year.

French Idyll

  • 4 of 5
The house and facilities are as described in the listing, The house was clean and all was in working order, beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed and more for a very pleasant stay. The fishing and golfing were very entertaining and it was very good that they were included in the price. Sandra and Alan are gracious hosts and very helpful whenever needed. We are happily recommending this property to all our friends and are hopefully going to return soon in a bit to catch "moby dick" the monster carp.!! The two dogs are exuberant and like to spend time with the guests, (watch out for your golf balls when Husk is out!) however if not "dog people" Sandra and Alan will happily keep them in their run. Overall a brilliant , relaxing holiday.

Characterful, Simple and Friendly

  • 4 of 5
Old French Farmhouse in need of some maintenance, but simple and clean, not luxurious.
Proximity of enclosed pool to house and covered verandah, good for children and families.
Lake and small golf course across the road from the house lovely for children's activities after a day out.
Fairly isolated, with closest good markets within 20 minute drive at Issigeac on Sunday morning and St Foye Le Grande, Saturday morning.
Also nearby in Pomport, Chateau Bellingard for wines.
Highly recommended, excellent restaurant, 'Famille Moutier' within 3 minutes of house for incredible French cuisine and wine, excellent service and very child friendly. Well worth booking!
Owners very helpful and welcoming, along with their 2 big dogs!
The local recreational airfield can produce some weekend noise pollution.

Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous 2 weeks staying at Les Vachers. The cottage was great and provided everything we needed. Sandra, Alan and JJ made us very welcome and looked after us very well. My 2 boys loved the golf and caught lots of fish. The pool was great and close enough to the house to keep an eye on the kids. We loved the Issigeac Sunday market, the St Foy Saturday market and the Tuesday evening night market at Eymet. Canoed from Bergerac to Gardonne which was very enjoyable and peaceful. And visited a number of local wine estates (Our best locally were Chateau Belingard and Les Brandeaux). I would recommend this property.

Having just returned from our 2 weeks at the gite I must say the
house is very well equipped. The living room is very comfortable and large and is plenty big enough for 8 people as is the well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms are all of a good size and the beds are comfortable.
The pool area is lovely, the small pool was idea for our 14 month old grandson. Sandra checked on the pool regularly and it was kept very clean. We all had a go at the golf and really enjoyed it. The fishing was good and we managed to catch a fish (more by luck than anything else!) Alan was on hand to give help when required.
I would highly recommend this property. Alan and Sandra have gone to a great deal of trouble to make this a 'home from home'

Many thanks to Alan & Sandra for the effort they put into making sure you have a good holiday.
