Carrouze
Carrouze is set in an elevated position within 4 acres with 360 degree views. It comprises 2 detached properties and an apartment, each with their own private space with unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside. The properties are The Farmhouse, Cherry Trees Cottage and the Apartment.

Carrouze is close to Armillac in the Lot-et-Garonne, between Miramont-de-Guyenne and Tombeboeuf. Bergerac and its airport are about 40 minutes away. Miramont-de-Guyenne, a market town with its weekly Monday morning market and shops, supermarket, bars and restaurants is a 5 minute drive. Tombeboeuf golf course is only a few minutes away and there is plenty of things to do in the area, from châteaux to lakeside beaches, canoing to carting, water parks to wine tasting...the area has so much to offer.

The fenced heated salt water swimming pool is 'L' shaped (10m x 4m / 8m x 4m) and it can be floodlit at night - perfect for a midnight swim! There is a changing room with hot shower and toilet next to the pool - and a fridge and icebox for keeping things cool. For young children there is a little 'toddlers' pool' with fountain.

In addition, there is a sauna, jacuzzi, sun bed and exercise equipment for your exclusive use (open day and night). Beauty treatments and massage are available upon request from a trained therapist (payable locally). This is a perfect place for large groups or extended families to holiday together but there's plenty of space for peace, quiet and privacy when required.

Although each property has its own differently aspected garden with covered terraces and BBQs for dining al fresco, should the whole group wish to dine together there's a large covered terrace at the Farmhouse which will seat up to 30 people, complete with outside kitchen and BBQ. For other group social activities, in addition to the heated pool there's a large garden, a mini play park with swings and play tower and an outside covered games area with full size pool table, table tennis, darts, chess, books and other games. DVDs and indoor games are also provided.

At the end of each rental we ask our clients for comments on their stay - we hope that the following comments will help making your choice of property easier

  • Wonderful houses, with a lot of cooking locations, inside and outside. Owners are very helpful, will help you whenever they can. Perfect view, over sunflower fields. Beautiful swimming pool with places in the shade. Jacuzzi is really nice. Able to get on-site massage. In neighbourhood there are stores closeby, for a large city you need to drive a little bit longer. Everything was very well taken care of. (July 2018)
  • It was a very nice stay, you were very friendly and helpful, nice that the owners and French Gite Holidays helped us with reservations, activities, and sending back our forgotten item. They made our stay better than we could imagine. Thanks for that! (July 2018)

  • Brian and Tricia were great. Nothing was ever a problem for them. They helped us book taxis, restaurants, gave advice where ever needed.

Our hosts were extremely welcoming, while keeping in the background. beautiful site with wonderful views of the countryside.

We were very pleased with the sports equipment (table tennis, pool, darts, etc) In fact, we hardly needed to leave the site (August 2015)
  • There were 21 of us stayed - lots of kids and also teens. The position on a hill is fantastic, with views in every direction. Lots for the kids to do and they loved safely roaming the grounds. Pool is good and gently heated which is a bonus. Rooms were a really good size and lots of en suites which was great (some hooks to hang your towel on would be really handy). We loved the big dining terrace and the outside kitchen. Overall, a really good place for large groups. (August 2015)
