Nestled between the medieval Bastide towns of Monflanquin, Villereal and Monpazier, La Balie sits in 10 acres of rolling countryside and consists of a collection of 18th century farm buildings including 3 beautifully restored cottages. Both Le Pigeonnier and La Grenouilliere have three double ensuite bedrooms, La Lavandiere has two double ensuite rooms.
La Balie is ideal for families or groups of friends for whom it offers a stunning location to relax, share meals and explore the beautiful countryside of the Lot-et-Garonne. It also provides a great venue for special occasions such as weddings, birthday celebrations or other special events.
There is a wonderful, heated, salt water pool, with plenty of room for all guests to relax and enjoy the sunshine.
Superbly situated for touring the Dordogne and the Bastide towns of Aquitaine, La Balie is only 10 mins drive from Monflanquin and there are many leisure activities in the area including horse riding, canoeing and kayaking, vineyard visits and traditional local markets.

Just come back from an amazing stay at La Balie. We spent a week enjoying the first class facilities and stuffing ourselves on food from the local shops and markets. However nothing could prepare us for the wonderful meal our host Fiona provided us for a family celebration. Without doubt the highlight of a wonderful week. Will definitely be going back
We have just been looking at availability for next Spring and were inspired by the other reviews to write our own after our visit to La Balie earlier this year. We stayed at La Balie shortly after Fiona became the owner and were hugely impressed with everything about it - the location, the pool big enough for a decent swim, the quality of the accommodation and the pretty local towns and villages with great markets. Fiona's welcome and attention to detail were the icing on the cake. It is unusual for us to holiday in the same place more than once but we plan to do so here. A recommendation indeed!
La Balie was the perfect holiday retreat for a family with children. From the moment we arrived it was clear that every effort to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable had been thoughtfully considered. We were warmly welcomed by host Fiona, who took great pride ensuring guests were well looked-after. The property was delightful, and immaculately presented, with thoughtful touches all round. The setting was idyllic, with an abundance of local activities. The swimming pool was ideal for young children, with a graduated shallow end. All mod-cons including satelite tv and wifi was there for those who wanted it. It's one of the very few places we've been to where the experience exceeded the expectation.
We were highly impressed by the idyllic setting of La Balie, in the heart of rural France, boasting views over the rolling hills. The recently renovated farm buildings are beautiful, tasteful, light, comfortable, and full of charm and character. Each of the 3 holiday houses have their own private courtyard, which are super for enjoying dining outside. The pool is large with plenty of space for all the guests to enjoy lounging around it, and has views over the neighbouring fields. Fiona, the owner, is so friendly and kind. She ensures everything runs smoothly and really has done a fabulous job of making La Balie the charming place that it is. We had the most fantastic week and would highly recommend this holiday location to those who would like a peaceful holiday in a beautiful rural setting! Ideal for families.
A great place for the family with plenty of open grass area perfect for games. Fiona made us feel very welcome and has done a wonderful job in the finishing touches to superb accommodation. Excellent location with many charming, historical villages nearby, outdoor activities (including horse riding and tree climbing) and regular sightings of local wildlife. Sunflowers and wheat harvesting marked the summer months. We really loved our stay.
Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour familiale à la Bailie.
Tout d'abord les trois maisons séparées permettent un séjour convivial tout en laissant à chacun le loisir d'avoir son espace personnel. Les maisons sont très fonctionnelles et décorées avec gout.
La Bailie est un endroit parfait pour profiter du charme et de la tranquillité de l'arrière pays.
La piscine chauffée à l'eau de mer, ainsi que la gentillesse et la disponibilité de l'hôte sont les vrais plus de ce gite de qualité.
Nous le recommandons vivement.
45 mins from Bergerac on the Dordogne river La Balie is ideally situated to explore the beautiful countryside of South West France. With the historic Bastide towns of Villereal, Monflanquin and Monpazier within easy reach, kayaking on the Dordogne and Lot rivers and two excellent golf courses there is plenty to do and explore.
Daily markets producing exceptional local produce and wonderful vineyards to vist will provide you with an excellent source of local delicacies or if you'd rather dine out there are three One star Michelin restaurants nearby and plenty of cafes and less formal restaurants.
