Charming cottage in Les Croux, Monbazillac, Dordogne, France, with large heated pool - set in spacious grounds leading to vineyards. Secluded and peaceful. Re-renovated in 2019 with new flooring and carpet. This stone built cottage consists of a large living room with a kitchen and dining area, one bedroom and a bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped, with a gas stove, separate oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, toaster, blender, and a good range of cooking utensils. It has its own outdoor table with comfortable chairs and a parasol.
It is attached to our traditional Perigordine farmhouse, but still maintains its independence. Situated on a plateau at the edge of the village of Monbazillac, it is an idyllic spot to sample the pleasures that the Dordogne has to offer and is conveniently located just 7 minutes from Bergerac airport. It has a lovely heated swimming pool (13m x 6m), shared with the owners, set below a rockery and not overlooked by the main house. One can walk through vines and woodland without leaving the property. The village of Monbazillac is quiet, dominated by its 16th century chateau and famous vineyards. Ten minutes away by car is the town of Bergerac, full of shops, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, and of course, the beautiful old town (complete with Cyrano statues) and riverside port. There are markets on most days in the bastide towns, and night markets in the summer for local outdoor eating and drinking. We are close to the well known market of Issigeac, which takes place on Sunday mornings., and Eymet (Thursday).
There are bikes available (free), and a trampoline and pingpong for the energetic holiday makers.
Also in easy driving distance: Golf (2), Accrobranche (zip line), Karting, Canoeing, Lazerplay, Winetastings, Caves, and lots of Chateaux!
Idylic gite - perfect location
By Paulette Mary Terese D.Oakham, Rutland, U.K. on 14-Sep-2018
My husband and I have just returned from our first trip to the Dordogne and Bergerac. We stayed at Martin's gite just outside the village of Monbazillac and cannot praise it too highly. Although so close to the airport (7-8 minutes!) and to Bergerac itself we found ourselves in a beautiful location with peace and quiet guaranteed!
The gite itself was perfect for us and the grounds and vineyards surrounding the beautiful Perigordine farmhouse and outbuildings are the perfect place to relax. To have the use of the beautiful pool and garden was a huge bonus.
We can only add to the praise already left by others - Martin is the perfect host. Unobtrusive but friendly and very helpful when needed.
A memorable stay and we have penciled in next September for a return visit.
A lovely cottage with a friendly owner
By Stuart B. on 05-Jul-2018
The cottage was well-equipped and comfortable. It is situated in extensive grounds and the nearby swimming pool was large and heated.
The location was quiet, but only about a mile from Monbazillac and within 10 minutes of both the airport and the town of Bergerac.
The area boasts a huge number of vineyards, including Chateau Monbazillac, where you can have tastings and buy the famous sweet dessert wine.
Martin, the owner, was an excellent host being helpful and friendly, but not intrusive.
Relaxing and delightful retreat
By Helen D.Austin, TX on 25-Jun-2018
My family and I - two adults and one teen - spent four lovely days at the cottage, where we were able to relax by the pool as well as spend a of couple days exploring local villages and the wider Dordogne region. Martin is a wonderful host, who despite dealing with the after math of torrential rains the night before we arrived, still greeted us with good cheer and lots of helpful information. If we are ever back in this part of France, we would happily stay here again!
Lovely gite & friendly owner

The directions were good and the setting idyllic.
Martin was helpful and urbane. I can thoroughly recommend it.
Autumn Stay at Les Croux
By Alan Whitehouse on 14-Nov-2017
Les Croux is a compact space of Bedroom, living area and shower room, however the space is well used and the furnishings are comfortable. Being November we did not use the pool but I did relax in a chair with a book by it and it was easy to imagine what a nice place it must be in the warmer months. It was nice to find a property like this - ideal for two people but with the benefit you get with larger lets.
The immediate area around Les Croux affords many choices of constitutional walks from 5 minutes to a few hours through vines and woods - the choice is yours.
Martin was a superb host without being intrusive - can't ask for better than that.
Would we return one day - yes but maybe in the warmer months to fully experience the poolside and share a drink with Martin - Thank you

Comfortable gite set in a large garden surrounded by vineyards.
By Christine A.North Devon on 17-Sep-2017
A very relaxing holiday at Les Croux. The gite was well maintained and the pool and barbeque area beautiful, though sadly we weren't able to use them as much as we would have liked due to the changeable weather. Martin, the owner, was very helpful and friendly.

A lovely property, very peaceful and beautiful place; well equipped. The owner, Martin Lascelles, very pleasant and helpful.
Excellent for relax and also perfect to explore Dordogne, a region with remarkable landscapes, sites, castles and beautiful medieval villages.
Nous avons eu un magnifique séjour.
Thanks for all, Martin.
By Robert F. on 11-Jun-2017
A lovely well equipped and clean gite caters for 4 persons with pull out bed and separate bedroom. Oozes rustic charm, owner Martin very pleasant and helpful with excellent knowledge of the areas in the Dordogne. If you are a keen cyclist the surrounding areas are safe to ride through stunning countryside albeit a bit hilly. Cycles provided free by Martin. Large adjacent pool with sun lounges and towels provided. Car essential due to rural position. Great location for those wishing to get away from it all.
Excellent location to explore the Dordogne
By Anna B. London on 17-May-2017
Stayed for four days in May to explore the region and generally relax. The location of the house is perfect, beautiful and very peaceful about 15 - 20 min walk from Monbazillac. The gite is well equipped with everything you need and a very comfy bed. The weather was great so we made full use of the swimming pool which is well maintained with plenty of furniture. Martin was very helpful and the gave us lots of information and recommendations on local bars and restaurants. Would definitely stay again, thoroughly recommended.
