    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    The area that 'Penny Farthing' cottage is positioned on is the Route of Richard the Lion Heart, which can be followed easily. There are also at least three very lovely Châteaux all within approximately 5 to 6 kilometres of the cottage. The best is called Châteaux Montbrun which is about 3 kilometres from Negrelat and is well worth visiting, being a superb setting and with a pub/restaurant right by it's entrance.

    This property which is affectionately called 'Penny Farthing' has been completely renovated and is as new in all aspects.

    The area has a good selection of restaurants of varying food types and options from basic French to full International cooking of a very high calibre.

Had a really lovely stay here. Beds really comfy. Gite very cosy & warm. Polly & Nicks attention to detail was very nice & made the cottage feel really homely. Would not hesitate to recommend more

Pennyfarthing is a beautiful gite in a small village. Very rural but within easy reach of
nearby town, (car necessary.) Lovely walks.

The gite has everything you need and is extremely comfortable. Excellent decking that overlooks the garden, lovely to sit there and have a barbecue and a glass of wine.
