Chez Emmot is perfectly located...immersed in the beautiful French countryside with ample privacy supplied by the surrounding fields, orchards and vineyards. A 10 minute walk away is the small village of Taillecavat which has a local bakery for your morning pastries and baguettes. The house is also situated midway between the bastide towns of Monsegur and Duras (each approx 5km away) where there is an array of shops, newsagents, bakeries, bars, restaurants, banks and not forgetting Duras Chateau.
The house is fully equipped and sleeps 6 comfortably. There are two double bedrooms and a twin room plus 2 travel cots available. There is one bathroom with a separate toilet. There is an additional room in a windowed basement room which has a double futon available but we would like to make it clear to guests this room whilst habitable is not yet decorated to a high standard. Please enquire for further information should you require to use this room.
The kitchen is fully equipped and was fully refurbished in 2015 and has induction hob, oven and dishwasher facilities.
Having visited many gites and houses on holiday ourselves we personally spent a great deal of time enjoying the outdoors. We always find that the garden at Chez Emmot is at the heart of our stay. Alongside big open spaces for playing a game of badminton, kicking a football splashing in the paddle pool or just relaxing on a sunlounger we also try to maintain a stocked potager and thriving orchard - which guests are able to raid as the seasonal fruit and vegetables ripen. Depending on the time of year you visit you might find Apricots, Plums, Apples, Pears, Cherries, Persimmons, Greengages, Nectarines, Figs, Crab Apples, Raspberries, Strawberries plus whatever season vegetables we have planted such as Tomatoes, Aubergines, Courgettes, Peppers, Chard, Lettuces. Or perhaps you could pluck a bunch of grapes off our vine which grows against the house to enjoy with your evening cheese. We also keep 3 bikes on site for guests to use if they wish.
Each season still brings us new discoveries of flowers, animals or insects which reside within our boundaries. The lizards are always around to welcome you in and if your lucky you may get a visit from our resident green lizard who at a foot long with a bright blue throat is a great holiday spot. Or perhaps our baby hedgehog will pop his head out from the bushes at the back of the house to say 'hello'. If you are truly blessed (and an early riser) you might catch one of the wild deer in the garden minding its own business.
