Part of a farmhouse and barn conversion complex, Villa Platane in Agnac has 3 Bedrooms, spacious Kitchen and separate Salon. The building and magnificent Plane tree in the grounds are several hundred years old. The property sits in secluded grounds of 10,000 square metres, with a salt-water filtration pool.
The property has central heating for the winter months, but this part of France has a long autumn often extending through to December. This makes Villa Platane ideal for low-rate, off-season stays.
The site is shared with the English-speaking owners who occupy the barn conversion, but visitors have priority over all the amenities. The owners, who are discreetly on hand to provide information if required about local sights and amenities or to arrange guided tours, will do their utmost to ensure your stay is trouble free and thoroughly satisfying.
The gite is fully self-contained with 3 bedrooms (one ensuite) and there is an additional sofabed in the salon. It has one main bathroom and separate WC upstairs, and an ensuite toilet and shower room in the double bedroom. A third toilet and shower room has been installed downstairs for daytime convenience and periods of heavy demand.
Agnac (Eglise) is a hamlet 3 kms from the busy and popular bastide town of Eymet, frequently referred to by the fascinated French as "Dordogneshire" or "Dordogne-onThames" for its successful blend of traditional french-style and sizeable English-speaking resident population. There can surely be no easier introduction to French culture than to base yourself in this welcoming, anglophile tourist-friendly area.
Nearest public transport links are Bergerac, Bordeaux and Toulouse airports, or rail links at Bergerac , Ste Foy La Grande, and Marmande.
Your hosts can organise airport or station pick-ups and help with local car hire arrangements if required. They are also on hand to provide guided tours by arrangement, and to help out with any needs such as additional local currency, information and advice. Their aim is to make your arrival and stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
