An amazing, spacious house with everything you’ll ever need for a relaxing holiday in the south of France. The pool is great, badminton and trampolines keep the kids amused, outdoor living areas abound and the house itself - tastefully combining rustic and modern - is fantastic: 4 good sized bedrooms, spacious living and dining rooms and a well stocked kitchen. It’s a short drive from local amenities and good restaurants. Koen and the two local housekeepers are great to deal with, always on hand to answer questions and clearly keen that guests enjoy their stay. We’ll be back!
Lovely Spacious Holiday Home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious farmhouse with lovely pool and large wild garden. Everything was provided to ensure our stay was relaxed and comfortable. The south facing aspect gave beautiful sweeping views across farm and woodland and it was very quiet and piece full. We had the added bonus of glorious weather, even the one thunderstorm that came over us gave us a spectacular light show!
Lovely country house with stunning views
We have spend a most relaxing week in this nicely renovated house in a very beautiful and quiet region. Countryside-views are quite stunning as slopes go down on both sides of the property. The house itself is very spacious, features authentic elements, but also has a brand new, well equiped kitchen and 2 modern bathrooms. There’s a shady patio, a large garden with fruit trees (delicious prunes!) and a fantastic private swimming pool. With a field full of sun flowers right in front, we just loved being at the terraces and swimming pool. Koen is an excellent host; he’s very friendly and helpful and took great care of us.
There are some nice walks in the valleys around the house and a truly excellent restaurant in the sleepy village of Bardigues, just a short strawl away. The lovely village of Auvillar is a must see (a 10 minute drive away), and you’ll reach the beautiful city of Toulouse in just 45 minutes. If you are looking for a spacious peaceful place to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings, this is the place for you.
Lovely stay at Farmhouse at Bardigues
It was a charming peaceful and lovely place...overlooking the outdoor swimming pool and rolling hills. I enjoyed my stay very much. I especially love the hugh tastefully renovated new bathroom with rain shower. Thanks Koen & Hwa Eng!
Charming house in an amazing location
The house was beautiful and decked with modern amenities that were very well maintained! It also boasts an amazing countryside view and a prime location if you are looking to visit the wine regions of Cahors and Bordeaux (approx 1 - 1 1/2 hour drive). 10/10 would recommend if you're looking for a convenient and comfortable place to stay during your holiday in the region!
