Overview

About the property

5 Bed 5 Bath (& possibilty of 1 bedroom cottage) 7mx14m Pool & Tennis Court

What we love about our property: it is in a fantastic location (recommend you view on google satellite), in the middle of its own 30 acre grounds in the middle of the country side, totally private as accessed via electric gate down its own 200 metre drive, yet only 30 minutes from Bergerac and its international airport. Being on the favoured south side of Bergerac, it is ideally located to explore the medieval bastide towns of Issigeac (6 km), Beaumont (12 km), Villereal (14 km), Castillones (16 km) , Monpazier (21 km) and Eymet (27 km). The closest village with all amenities is Issigeac, with 2 small supermarkets, 2 pharmacies, and 3 excellent restaurants (our favourite being la Bruceliere) as well as a pizzeria. You can also cycle to the local shop in St Leon D'Issigeac (1.5 km away) to get your morning croissants! Issigeac is also renowned for its sunday morning market as well as many other fairs and events throughout the year.

There is plenty to occupy the children on site (tennis, pool, football, table tennis, snooker, table football etc) as well as in the vicinity (horse riding in Faux, go-carting in Bergerac, canoing on the Dordogne), and lots of wonderful walks.

For those who enjoy their wine, there are some excellent local vinyards: indeed, the couple who look after our property and who are the local point of contact for our clients are owners of one of the renowned local vinyards, and would be pleased to organise local wine tasting for you.

Perhaps something else to consider: we have equipped the property for our own personal use and not as a pure rental property. The beds, furniture etc are thus of a high standard and you should hopefully feel that this is a home rather than just a rental property.

Lovely property. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property. It was truly a home from home. It was great to have two sitting rooms - one for the teenagers (next to the wi-fi!) and one for grownups.

The pool was perfect, as was the whole setting of the house and grounds. It was great to have the bikes to get bread in St Leon, and for general mooching about the countryside.

Issigeac is a beautiful village, with delightful shops and market. Monpazier is also well worth a visit, and it is not too far to go to the amazing gardens at Marqueyssac.

Thank you Keith and family for our stay in your wonderful house. We had a fabulous holiday and can't wait to return.

A beautiful home from home property

  • 5 of 5

Keith the owner is amazing, extremely helpful, excellent customer service!

Franc Leonard is a beautiful farmhouse big enough to house two families and very private.

Very well catered for children with a beautiful games room, tennis court, fabulous swimming pool, badminton, table tennis and cycles to ride.

All the bedrooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable.

Plenty of outside comforts too with the BBQ area by the swimming pool.

We had an amazing time and would recommend Franc Leonard to our family and friends.

Thank you once again Keith.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are two families of five (children aged between 8 and 12) and we had a fantastic fortnight at Franc Leonard, which is spacious and very well equipped, with a great pool area and lots to do both at the house itself as well as being located close to lovely town of Isseygeac, Bergerac, Monbazillac and other beautiful Bastide towns. Canoeing and high ropes etc are all within reasonable driving distance and it's a lovely area for cycling. An amazing family holiday.

Relaxed, fun and charming

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 2 week stay in this perfectly located property. There are lots of busy towns within a short travelling distance with lots to see and do for all the family. Even if you don't want to travel far the whole family will be kept occupied with tennis, games, teenage hangout den, pool and easy walks from the house. We couldn't recommend this property highly enough for it's facilities and location.
