Les arbieux gite, a property parts of which goes back to the 12th, is located at the top of the hill which overlooks the small village of La Sauvetat-sur-Lède , midway between the town of Villeneuve- sur-Lot and the hilltop of the medieval village of Monflanquin. The owners live on site at the rear of the house and help for any requirement if necessary and daily pool cleaning.
Entrance into the gite is situated at the front of the house overlooking orchards of prune trees which is ideal for dog's walking. The accommodation consists of :

Double bedroom with king size bed and adjoining shower room & WC.
Family bedroom, double king size bed and full-size adult bunk beds on ensuite/ bath / shower and WC.
Fully equipped kitchen and separate lounge with table and chairs and seating plus TV SKY free to air and DVD/CD player.

Master bedroom with king size bed and ensuite shower room, WC. There is also a TV SKY free to air and DVD player. This bedroom now has the benefit of recently installed AIR CONDITIONNING.

All bedrooms have cooling celling fans. The gite is WIFI friendly and the access to the garden, the pool and the terraces is via a side gate alongside the house.

OUTSIDE The garden has two terraces and a pool.

One terrace overlooking the pool with a lovely view of the surrounding countryside. Table and chairs and parasol are there for eating or drinking. At the end of the terrace is a table-tennis.

The BBQ terrace above the pool is roofed and lit for evening use. It has a summer kitchen consisting of a fridge, a sink with hot water, a cupboard with all crockery and cutlery and glasses etc... Around this terrace the garden is also lit for barmy nights.

Going down 3 steps takes you to the heated saltwater swimming pool. The size is 11,5 m x 5m with Roman end. The decking at the end of the pool has a Tonnelle which gives a shaded area for 3 sunbeds. At the other end there are 6 sunbeds and parasols. The pool is cleaned regularly by the owner and is exclusive to the use of the customers. However, the owners have the use of the pool if the customers are away from the gite.

In the village of La Sauvetat-sur-Lède (5 mn walk from the gite) there is a bar/restaurant where it is possible to buy fresh bread and a good selection of take away pizzas.
The Bastide town of Villeneuve-sur-Lot (8 kms away) is a medium size town with a good variety of shops & large supermarkets, with the river Lot flowing through the center where they organize weekly free concerts on the riverbanks. For those who like eating out, there is a large selection of restaurants to choose from. Close to Villeneuve is the beautiful village of Pujold which offers a fantastic view.

Monflanquin, one of the most stunning of the bastide towns with its hilltop location offers some very good restaurants and a large Casino supermarket open 7 days a week. This medieval village comes alive with the medieval festival where for three days in the middle of August the town is transformed back into the 12th century with jousting knights & people dressed in the clothes of the period.
Places worth visiting, Chateau Biron restored castle and Monpazier, beautiful bastide town. Beynac is also worth seeing, 1 h journey time. Some of the best canoeing on the Dordogne with stunning sceneries.

25% deposit of the total holiday cost is required for all bookings made, with the balance payable one month prior to arrival.

Please note a refundable deposit of £150 is required per booking. If the Gite has not been cleaned at the end of the holiday an amount of £50 will be retained.

Fantastic House and Location

By The Way Family on 09-Jul-2022

This was our 3rd time staying here in Bruce and Annes lovely house. The outside space is fantastic with a great pool and barbecue area. The barbecue area has everything you need, including a fridge, sink and hot water supply, meaning you don't need to travel back and forth into the house. The pool is fantastic with lots of seating around the edge, complete with a shaded area as well if you need to escape the sun. Inside has 3 big bedrooms, 2 of which are en suite and the 3rd has its own private bathroom. ,Bruce and Anne are a lovely and friendly couple who are always willing to give you advice or help in any way.. The location is perfect with everything you need only a very short drive away. There is a lovely bar/restaurant in the village which is definitely worth going to. for food and drink. Highly recommend this house hence we have stayed there 3 times.

Great location with lots of places to visit. Pool and garden area a treat. Friendly and helpful hosts

By Chris Purcell on 11-Jun-2022

We had a great two weeks at Les Arbieux, Its main attraction is the al fresco lifestyle with an outside shaded dining area c/w fridge, BBQ and sink. There is ample area for sunbathing around the large clean pool that Bruce is fastidious about keeping clean plus an additional patio if you want to dine in the sunshine. They are great hosts who are not intrusive but will give advice on the many places to visit and the attractions local to the area.

A very enjoyable holiday

By John BLT on 23-Jul-2022

This holiday property shares the same building (a former priory) as the owners, but is a self contained unit on two floors, and has extensive views across the valley from the rear patio area. The owners are friendly but not intrusive, giving advice on local night markets, shopping and restaurants. The self contained barbeque with table and chairs and a sink in the private garden was great, as was the fridge which stored cold drinks throughout the day. Fantastic for those really hot and sunny days! The exclusive use of the heated pool (screened by trees and bushes) was superb, and was cleaned early every morning, while the sunbeds and parasols did not cramp the area which was a real suntrap, access being gained via steps down from the garden. The accommodation caters for 8 although there are bunk beds in a family ensuite room, the other 2 bedrooms also having their own shower rooms. There is a lounge/dining area with 'french windows' to a small patio, and a galley kitchen which was quite adequate. The rental price of the property bearing in mind this area of France is very reasonable for the facilities on offer, and we had a lovely holiday with gorgeous weather during our 2 week stay. We saw little of Bruce and Ann although both were very hospitable, and we shared an evening of drinks and nibbles on the patio during one evening, and went to a night market with them in Monflanquin. All round it was a holiday to remember.
