BFB's Overview.

Described as ‘a slice of paradise’ by one delighted guest, Gites de Sevenne is a pretty pair of cottages for families to unwind, just 20 minutes off the beaten track from the tourist honeypots of the Dordogne. It took owners Sandie and Mark five years to find the perfect French property to be their home and business with no compromises, but in 2011 the couple fell in love at first sight with seductive ‘Sevenne’.

With Mark an ex hotelier and Sandie a former NNEB nursery nurse, the couple make the perfect Baby-Friendly Boltholes partnership, besides having the personal experiences of many happy years holidaying in France with their now grown up sons. To begin with the location is perfect for relaxing, just nicely secluded and surrounded by fields but close to amenities and holiday attractions. The setting of the gites is pretty special too, with 4-acres of gardens for children to burn off hyperactivity while parents chill out by the 12x6 metre fenced pool, under shady willows or with a fine Bergerac on the gites’ patios. Outdoor amusements include a football area, badminton and volleyball nets, swings, play house, ride-ons and a covered games area, plus guests can pick grapes from the vines in summer and youngsters will have fun helping the owners hunt for fresh eggs from the free roaming hens and ducks. Silk painting workshops for all ages are an added bonus and frazzled parents can enjoy a welcome break thanks to the ‘Duckling Club’ activity morning, available once a week by arrangement.
The two gites, Duck Cottage (sleeps 4) and Drake Cottage (sleeps 6), have been attractively created from traditional stone farm buildings to offer comfortable family accommodation, with all mod cons and the character of rustic original features. Both cottages have their own patios with outdoor furniture, BBQ’s and views over the gardens, while inside they each have a wood burning stove, well equipped kitchens and helpful baby equipment, MP3 docks, UK TV, games, books, DVD players and a selection of DVDs. The two cottages also adjoin each other, making Duck and Drake ideal for extended families to enjoy holidays together with everyone having space to themselves.

Location Information

Gites de Sevenne is a tranquil hideaway deep in the unspoilt Lot and Garonne region, ‘far from the madding crowds’ that flood into the Dordogne yet under half an hour’s drive from the buzzing ‘bastide’ walled towns and natural attractions. The nearest village is Saint Barthelemy d'Agenais (3km) where there is a tabac, bar, deli, boulangerie and post office. The nearest town with more shops, supermarkets, banks and restaurants is Miramont-de-Guyenne (14kms).

The region is famous as a foodies paradise, with mouthwatering delicacies to discover in every town and bordering the Bordeaux vineyards to the north. Every town has wonderful markets where the stalls are piled high with eye-popping local produce and throughout the summer, night markets are a quintessentially French way to spend the evenings.
Snaking rivers, rolling scenery and fields of sunflowers also put outdoor activities high on the agenda, whether hiking, cycling, horse riding or canoeing and the Dordogne is also legendary for its spectacular caverns with prehistoric cave paintings. The white sand-fringed lake at nearby Lougratte with its children's play area, slides, paddles and lifeguards, as well as the river beach at Castelmoron, both around 15-20mins drive away, are great for family-friendly 'beach' days.
For more man-made family fun, Walabi Theme Park, near Agen, provides a variety of rides for all ages, Cap'Decouverte, near Albi, is a giant leisure park and Archipel de Cahors is a water park with a 4300sq ft swimming pool, paddling pools, slides and Jacuzzis.
Getting There: The nearest airports are Bergerac (45 mins) and Bordeaux (85 mins). A car is essential and can be hired from either airport. For self drive holidays, the nearest ferry ports are St. Malo and Caen (7-8 hours) while Calais is a 9-hour drive.
Nearest Medical Services: GP 10 minutes; A&E 20 minutes
