Located in the sleepy rural department of Lot et Garonne, La Nique stands in an acre of its own land and on the brow of a hill, with spectacular views across valleys on two sides and woods on a third. The nearest house is about 400 yards away, with just 3 others along the track. 4 double beds plus 2 x 2 bunks. The house is particularly suitable for two families sharing. There is a fully equipped kitchen and 2 bathrooms (3 WC). Outside, there is a large private pool and an all weather tennis court, as well as BBQ, table tennis, bar football, croquet, boules etc. Plus 3 patios for al fresco dining. This is a truly magnificent holiday home. For more details, please contact us for our Website address.

Wonderful house and garden
We had a fantastic week at La Nique, we spent most of our time in the wonderful gardens or exploring the surrounding countryside. The owners clearly love nature and the outdoors, this property has everything from wildlife to clear skies for star-gazing. Inside it has everything required for a comfortable stay.
Fabulous villa and setting in the heart of this part of France. Very happy to recommend it.
Everything about our stay was excellent. The house is well equipped and spacious, and cool during the summer nights. Situated in a rural setting it provided significant privacy to relax and enjoy rural France. Whilst we were not looking for a tennis court this became an added bonus for us and early morning games became essential. The pool is an excellent size and our girls spent many hours in it! The house is well placed for access to the local villages and Marmande further afield. The latter has big supermarkets and other useful stores. There is also excellent cycling to be had on the local roads. We found a good selection of circular routes and away from the traffic. The owner was very quick to respond to questions and requests. Many thanks.
wonderful house and garden, a French oasis
It is a great house for 2 families to share. There is so much to do at La Nique (swimming, tennis, ping pong, table football, croquet ..), it is tempting not to do much else! We enjoyed the nearby lake, markets etc. The house is very well equipped. We loved it,.
A perfect week
A spacious family property that ideally suited our group (grandparents, 2 sets of parents and a total of 3 small grandchildren not forgetting the dog). It was superbly equipped throughout (so much so, there was little space in the kitchen to store our own food!). It had loads of character, in fact it had a typical French farmhouse atmosphere. The pool was wonderful, ideal for the very hot weather we were lucky enough to experience, all set in extensive grounds ideal for children of all ages. We would not hesitate to recommend this property, and return again soon.
Lovely, relaxing holiday at a beautiful villa
My wife and I had a week's relaxing holiday with our 2 dogs here and were so pleased we booked this. The villa is beautiful with all the mod cons. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of bedrooms to choose from. The pool was just the right temperature with plenty of land surrounding it all and a tennis court! This was all set in the beautiful French countryside. You literally hear nothing!
The local village is a 5 min drive away where you can get supplies and of course your morning baguettes but for a larger shop Marmande has a large Carrefour that caters for everything and is only 15 min drive away.
Highly recommended and look forward to coming back again.
Charming house, great pool and tennis court, peaceful and pretty location.
Well equipped and comfortable house, all very easy, just like home! Great to have the table tennis/ football as well as the excellent pool and tennis court. Would love to go again. Nice walks, 12th century chapel nearby, lovely wild flowers, pretty garden. A treat!
16 Kms south of Marmande, and 80 kms south east of Bordeaux, the nearest village is Cocumont, which has shops, bank, cafe, garage and wine cooperative. la Nique is about 3 kms away from the village. In the peaceful countryside - farmland and woods - and very private. There are no houses to overlook you and days can pass without seeing a car or another person, if that is what you would like. Yet just 5 minutes drive from the village 15 minutes from Marmande, and 20 minutes from the motorway.
Please tell owner if sheet service is required at £15 GBP per single set and £30 GBP per double.
