Domaine de Gigan - Bread Oven
Stunning cottage with every home comfort in large grounds with heated pool
Sleeps 4

Gigan Bread Oven
2 bedrooms, sleeps 4 - can be booked with Domaine de Gigan Farmhouse
Located in the gently rolling landscape of the Lot et Garonne close to the small town of Tombeboeuf and within easy reach of Miramont de Guyenne and Villeneuve sur Lot, the cottage (Bread Oven) is one of two renovated properties which are situated in 6.5 acres of fabulous landscaped gardens with a secluded 12m x 6m heated salt water swimming pool. 

The gated property is in a totally private position but just a few minutes drive from the small town of Tombeboeuf which has a boulangerie, butcher, good restaurant, large lake for country walks or fishing and the added bonus of a great 9 hole golf course. The views from the terraces and gardens are beautiful - whether looking north towards Tombeboeuf or south to the hill just above the house and the restored windmill of Coulx - particularly fabulous in summer when the fields are carpeted with sunflowers.

Domaine de Gigan is a perfect base for self guided walking tours, with almost 400 routes available throughout the department. There are frequent flights to Bergerac, Bordeaux & Toulouse airports.

The cottage (Bread Oven)

Restored with comfort and style in mind. This gite is a real home from home - the main living room fills the whole area of the original building and its beamed ceiling soars into the apex of the roof, the walls are of exposed stone, which are a great backdrop for the 'Jim Lawrence' light fittings and terracotta tiled floors (hand made just a few miles away) plus underfloor heating make this the best of destinations at any time of year.
  • Fabulous renovated 'colombage' cottage framed by pretty rose garden
  • Open living room with log burning stove and comfy sofas, one of which is a large sofa bed
  • Well equipped hand made country kitchen with granite work surfaces, gas hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine - there is also use of the large freezer which is kept in the cellar under the Farmhouse
  • UK satellite TV & DVD player
  • WiFi
  • Stylish hand painted dining table and chairs seating six and perfectly placed to take in the view of the windmill on the hill above the house
  • Beautiful secluded and shady terrace with charcoal BBQ
  • As with the Farmhouse, there is a small veggie patch for the property usually stocked with herbs, tomatoes, lettuces and sometimes courgettes for you to help yourselves to
  • Two comfy, luxurious bedrooms; one twin and one double (super king size) with fully tiled en-suite shower rooms and french doors onto the side terrace - the twin beds can be made into a double if required
  • Additional shower off the terrace, perfect if you've just come back from the pool
  • Fully equipped for babies and small children - cot, high chair, stair gate, videos, books, swing, toys.....!
The outdoor space is great for everyone - whether for a lazy afternoon dozing on the daybeds or hammocks or enjoying a game of croquet, badminton or table tennis. There is a good selection of bikes of different sizes for you to use, complemented by a selection of bike helmets. There's plenty of things for the younger ones too, from scooters to a football goal, from a sandpit to a Wendy house and a wooden climbing frame.

You can enjoy the wildflower meadow, in the field above the swimming pool - meandering trails so younger guests can go off on adventures within sight of their parents. Also up there, another path leads to a thatched wooden pergola, perfectly positioned to enjoy the view of the windmill on the hill.  

The 12m x 6m heated salt water pool is secured by a hard cover and has an infrared pool alarm system for your peace of mind.

The owner is close at hand to make sure everything runs smoothly for your perfect holiday in this fabulous area. Added extras such as croissants delivered to your door on request and optional home cooked meals make this a place to shake off the cares of the world and just enjoy - this is a truly magical place for a great holiday at any time of year.
