LA LAVANDE - Dordogne - Sleeps 10

The largest of our cottages. Excellent for groups of family or friends 

 LA LAVANDE in Dordogne, a gite in Dordogne and Lot

A large garden with a well shaded area for when it's really hot. 4 bedrooms

No swimming pool - just a private 5 acre lake, complete with beach and island, to give you safe, warm bathing all summer long. Family sized rowing boat for fishing or just for pottering. Two other peaceful lakes of 1+ acres each stocked for fishing.

There are four farm-workers' cottages on the estate which have been carefully renovated to maintain many old features. A three-bedroomed and four-bedroomed cottage are within 100 metres of the lake: another four-bedroomed cottage along with the two-bedroomed cottage are to be found near our farmhouse, + km away through the woods. Each cottage has an enclosed, toddler-proof garden.

Our 250 acres of mixed woodland and grassland (we raise beef cattle and sheep) are available for you to explore; an activity made even more enjoyable by three miles of maintained footpaths.

Colourful local markets and excellent restaurants are within easy reach, as are the wonderful Bordeaux vineyards. We are always available for help, advice and information.

For more information about what we have to offer at Le Vignaud, please look at the entries for Chez Robert or Porcherat, which are our other two larger cottages. They are nearer the main lake(there are 3 lakes altogether) and as such some people find them more attravtive, especially if they have small children. La :Lavande is less than 10 mins. walk from the big lake, passing by the two smaller ones. This walk is a pleasure in itself and as La Lavande is probably the most "sociable" in terms of its layout, it does appeal to groups of families or friends.
At Le Vignaud, you are not just getting a comfortable house, you are getting the farm, the lakes the woods and the footpaths. We also lend you bikes to explore further afield.
We have brought up our 5 children here and they have never had a summer holiday away from Le Vignaud and they have never regretted it. Although they have all left school and moved on to work and university, they still come home every summer and organize games of rounders, boule tournaments and "water rugby" matches which you will be more than welcome to enjoy with us.
