BFB's Overview

Tucked away in a beautiful wooded valley of the Lot-et-Garonne countryside, Le Petit Wren is a gem of a Cottage where even the most fraught families can utterly unwind, lazing by the pool and enjoying time together. The English Hosts’ daughter Karen, who is the keyholder and lives nearby, is a fully trained beautician and masseuse so parents can spoil themselves with some well earned pampering.

Youngsters have 1.5 acres of enclosed garden to play hide and seek or build dens amongst the trees and parents can keep a watchful eye from a sunny south-facing terrace, with French doors into the kitchen (and cold drinks in the fridge!). The pretty pool area is another sun trap for lazing on loungers and finding shady spots beneath the trees, plus a poolside annex which contains an outdoor kitchen, shower and loo, is especially handy with babies and toddlers. The built-in barbecue and garden dining table is also by the pool so families really can get settled from dawn to dusk, from leisurely breakfasts to sizzling suppers.

With 3 bedrooms, Le Petit Wren is actually bigger than it first appears and, as well as having a living/dining area, the cottage has a super smart and cosy ‘snug’, with a big flatscreen TV, DVD player, sound system and wood burner. The modern kitchen has all the essential appliances and cookware for family self catering and the kids can be drawing pictures at a central island unit while mum or dad gets cooking. If parents fancy a night off chef duties, there are three good restaurants only a mile or so from Le Petit Wren, at the foot of the hilltop Chateau Bonaguil. For lunch or dinner, Le Bon Enfant couldn’t be better, with a play area and friendly animals for children to pet, as well as the Chateau grounds to play knight and princesses.

Accommodation overview
Le Petit Wren is a family Cottage for up to 6 people, plus babies, with 3 good-sized bedrooms, 2 travel cots and 1 wooden cot. The kitchen has all mod cons, including a dishwasher and a central island unit and this leads into a dining/living room which has steps into a cosy and sophisticated snug, with a flatscreen TV, DVD player and music system. French doors open to the front and back, of the Cottage, including a sunny south-facing terrace overlooking the garden and pool. The master bedroom has a large, French double bed, the second bedroom is also a double and the third has twin single beds. There is space for a cot in all three bedrooms. A new family bathroom has a stylish, modern walk-in shower and there is a separate WC in the Cottage, as well as an annex by the pool which has an outdoor kitchen, shower and toilet.

Location Information

Le Petit Wren is tucked away amongst the unspoilt and peaceful valleys of the Lot-et-Garonne countryside in South West France. The region is steeped in medieval heritage and the magnificent Chateau Bonaguil is just 2kms away, brooding over a medieval village with three restaurants, including Le Bon Enfant with a playground and animal petting area. In the summer, Chateau Bonaguil hosts a magnificent firework display, medieval displays, music and theatre events.

Fumel is the nearest town, (10 mins) with a good variety of shops and, after stocking up on provisions, families can board a traditional ‘gabarre’ for a boat trip along the Lot River. The area also has lots of incredibly well preserved medieval towns to explore, including Monpazier and Monflanquin, full of arty little shops, pavement cafes and bistros in ancient cobbled streets and squares.

A few kilometres from Monpazier, Le Parc en Ciel (20 mins), makes a great day out for a family picnic, with a large natural swimming pool set out with sun loungers as well as treetop adventure courses, mini golf, disc golf and playgrounds, all within 16 acres of woodland. The Walibi Amusement Park also promises a whole load of fun, just an hour away, near Agen, with roller coasters, rides and shows for all ages.

Nearest medical services: Medical centre 5-10 mins; A&E at Villeneuve-sur-Lot, 25 mins.

Getting here: The nearest airport is Bergerac (56 kms), which has direct flights from the UK with Ryanair, FlyBe and British Airways.

Who owns this place?

Ron & Chris live in the UK, we bought the cottage last year as we've admired the house when out on local walks, when our daughter told us that the property was for sale we jumped at the opportunity to purchase the cottage as a holiday home for everyone to enjoy it.

What do they love about it?

We love the area, it's peaceful but also very convenient for shopping, restaurants, vineyards and site-seeing, the area is protected and having Bonaguil 2mins away is perfect, plus our daughter Karen live only 5mins away and manages the property on our behalf.

What do the kids love about it?

Children have lots to do and see in this part of France, with castles to explore, pottery painting, parc en ciel for the more ambitious, water parks, natural lakes with beaches and much more or playing in the pool at the cottage and enjoying the space of the garden and trees for hide and seek......there are also lots of local chemo so for walks and cycling - it's all very safe and peaceful
