Lovely cottage, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We received a warm welcome from Fiona and were delighted that La Balie lived up to our expectations. La Lavandiere was well appointed, spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The outdoor areas were also very well maintained. We enjoyed the swimming pool and playing boules in the meadow in the evenings. Monflanquin is a nice town nearby. We visited markets at Pujols and Montpazier and the chateau at Gavaudun. The night markets were lively and great fun - very informal dining on local produce, entertainment (Salles, Monflanquin, Montagnac-sur-Lede). With our 2 boys (9 & 7), we enjoyed canoeing on the River Dordogne with Canoe Roquegeoffre (Saint-Vincent-de-Cosse). Amazing views of chateaux along our 14km journey. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at La Balie and would love to return. We recommend it without hesitation.

Charming, authentic and beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

With my husband and three young children, we spent a fantastic week this summer at cottage La Lavandière at La Balie. Our host Fiona immediately made us feel welcome and at home. La Lavandière is a single floor cottage with large bedrooms and a very sunny living room. The cottage is superbly decorated and offers fantastic views on the lovely surroundings. The cottage is very practical and comfortable. Though we had sunshine the entire week, we never felt too hot inside. The private courtyard and nearby garden are ideal for young children to play and for watching the stars at night! The swimming pool is surrounded by an enchanting garden that Fiona plans to embellish even more! Fiona provided us useful advice on restaurants and places to visit in the neighbourhood and we enjoyed all our visits to nearby Monflanquin, Chateau de Biron, Chateau de Bonaguil, Villeneuve-sur-Lot,... I would definitively recommend a visit to La Balie and hope to be going back soon!
