Vacation Rental Description
Valmar Gite is beautiful self-catering accommodation, sleeping up to 4 people, with a fantastic private pool and stunning views overlooking the Cazeneuve valley. Situated in the heart of the Lot-et-Garonne countryside of Southwest France, in the Aquitaine region, half way between Bordeaux and Toulouse and only a five minute drive to the nearest small Bastide town of Sainte Livrade-sur-lot. Valmar is set in three quarters of an acre of private grounds, which afford great views over nearby vineyards and rolling hills. This self catering accomodation offers guests the benefit of exclusive use of the fantastic 10m x 5m private swimming pool, completed in 2007.
The countryside in South-West France around our gite, is a land of sunflowers and medieval towns, of caves and of vineyards and of castles and quiet lost villages, of sunshine and tradition, and of miles of beautiful unspoilt scenery. So come and explore "The Real France" or just laze by the pool with a glass of your favourite tipple and watch the sun set over the beautiful rolling hills opposite.
The property comprises an open plan “Chez de Jardin “, which includes a well equipped kitchen, with electric oven and hob, refrigerator, washing machine and dishwasher. All the work surfaces are of solid oak. The kitchen also incorporates a dining area with table and chairs.
The lounge area has a sofa which pulls out into a comfortable double bed for guests five and six (particular fun for those little ones !). There is also a portable single bed for guests five and six, should they wish to sleep seperately.
