La Fon Rouge is situated in the hamlet of Boudy de Beauregard near Cancon with superb views across the magnificent French countryside in the beautiful Lot-et-Garonne region.
With 2.5 hectares of park and woodland, it is an ideal place to relax with a drink on the terrace or by the 10m x 5m pool, with plenty of room for the children to play safely.
An ideal location for your self catering holiday to explore this delightful region of France which remains largely undiscovered adjacent to the busier Dordogne. Not only for your summer holiday rental but for all year round rental, as all three properties have central heating.
The pool is not heated so is open in the summer period from mid-May to the end of September.
La Cabanon is one of two Gites at the Property (together with a large farmhouse) owned by friends of ours. La Cabanon is simple, but very nice, basic but spacious, with a most useful "utility room" with shower and bath and washing machine. The other Gite has a bigger kitchen (so if cooking is your thing stay in that one). The Property has a very nice swimming pool, shared with the main house and the other Gite but it is usually pretty quiet as visitors spend much time "out and about" visiting the many lovely local Bastides and the Dordogne. The local town of Monflaquin is lovely, good big supermarket and four good restaurants.
The lot valley, south of the Dordogne is a beautiful, unspoiled, temperate and largely undiscovered area of self West France nestling between the Lot and the Garonne rivers.
The open countryside of gentle hills and valleys provides a sense of freedom far away from the hustle and bustle of normal life, and all within driving distance of the popular Dordogne region. With forests, vineyards, and famland set amongst the many charming hill top bastide towns such as Monflanquin, Villereal, Monpazier. The area is steeped with history, being part of the battlefield for the 100 years war. Only 3km from Cancon and 8km from Monflanquin both with shops, banks and restaurants. The swimming lake at Lougratte is only 5kms away. There are many vineyards nearby, including the famous St Emilion and Bergerac regions. Bordeaux is 90 mins away.
Bergerac airport is only 40 kms away, and has regular flights from the UK, including regional airports such as Southampton, Bristol and Exeter.
