Lanquais village has a very good restaurant Les Marronnieres, which also has a friendly bar and a nature lake. The nearest town is Lalinde, only about a 10 minute drive for supermarket shopping, or Bergerac (20 minutes away). The 4* Gite itself is a wing of a converted barn, set in five and a half acres, 1 mile outside of Lanquais. The gite has been awarded a 4* rating by Tourisme de France. It is a very tranquil and peaceful setting with some wonderful views. The Gite has WiFi and both French and English TV (with some Spanish channels also available). There is a separate lounge with its own private terrace where you can access the plunge pool and enjoy the sunset or the views with a glass or wine or two! There is, a large vaulted kitchen dining room, with new oak fitted kitchen, a downstairs bedroom with a double bed, with a mezzanine area above with two single beds. There is an ensuite shower room to the main bedroom. The private plunge pool (for exclusive use of Gite guests only) provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the views and cool down after a perfect summers day with a glass of wine or your favourite tipple. A travel cot is also available if required. Also, If needed, a further double bedroom with ensuite shower is available by separate negotiation (attached to the main house with a separate private entrance) so that the Gite could accommodate a party of six (or seven with the cot). Please note there are limited reviews as the property is newly renovated and therefore only just available.More
