Domaine de Gigan - Bread Oven
Beautiful restored colombage bread oven located in the gently rolling sunflower-filled landscape of the Lot-et-Garonne within easy reach of Miramont-de-Guyenne, Eymet, Villeneuve-sur-Lot and the many tourist attractions. It's gated and situated in 6.5 acres of fabulous landscaped gardens 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 stunning - whether looking north 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. There are super travertine tiled en suites, decorated with Farrow & Ball paints, Jim Lawrence light fittings and gorgeous soft furnishings. There are also mosquito blinds on the bedroom windows - and all of them upstairs so you can leave your windows open to the breeze at night.

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.

The property is fully equipped for babies and small children - cot, high chair, stair gate, videos, books, swing, toys.....!

It's also a perfect base for self guided walking tours, with almost 400 routes available throughout the department. Special interest holidays can also be booked outside of the peak season, such as Pilates, yoga and art.

Fabulous restored colombage bread oven designed with comfort and style in mind. A real home from home framed by a pretty rose garden.

Inside:

  • 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 hand made terracotta tiled floors plus underfloor heating make this the best of destinations at any time of year

  • Open living room with log burning stove and comfy sofas, one of which is a large sofa-bed

  • UK TV, DVD player and WiFi

  • 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

  • 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

  • 2 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

Outside:

  • Shower room just off the terrace, perfect if you've just come back from the pool

  • 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

  • Wildflower meadow with meandering trails so younger guests can go off on adventures within sight of their parents, with another path leading to a thatched wooden pergola, perfectly positioned to enjoy the view of the windmill on the hill

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

Pets may be allowed when both Farmhouse and Cottage are booked together, but not allowed on soft furnishings or in the pool and their waste must be collected and disposed of regularly - please ask us

10 day rentals may be possible - please ask us

Both properties can be rented separately, in which case the pool will be shared with others - they can be found individually on our properties list
