Cottage
St Valentin Cottage is in the charming hamlet of Coulx nestling in the beautiful hills above the Lot Valley in the heart of the Lot-et-Garonne. Situated on the the hill close to the old stone windmill of Coulx, this purpose built single storey cottage has been designed to provide maximum comfort for couples and enjoys panoramic views of rural France. French doors open onto a sunny private garden which leads to a large 10m x 5m heated swimming pool and sun terrace. It is an ideal base to explore the historic Bastide towns, medieval villages, country markets and the wonderful wine regions of Buzet and Duras. There is a local golf course with friendly bar just 3km away, where visitors are made very welcome. Lessons and equipment hire available.

Peaceful and relaxing holiday
We spent a very comfortable and relaxing week in this well appointed gîte. Extremely tranquil location with fabulous views of the surrounding area. Superb pool and pool area, outside seating areas in sun and shade. Great location for visiting the nearby towns and bastides. Thank you to Jane and Tony who were very welcoming hosts.

Wonderful "home from home"
We were thrilled with this place. The little house is equipped with great ingenuity to provide all home comforts, and everything is good quality. Even the mini hairdryer is better than the one I have at home! Tony and Jane are the perfect hosts and made us very welcome while giving us total privacy. Their garden is spectacular, and there's a little hedged "room" of it that you have all to yourself. We stayed in mid October, so it was a bit too cold to use the pool – a pity, as it looks absolutely gorgeous!

Hello Alison, I have only just seen your fantastic review for st Valentin cottage- it shows how often I check them. We really enjoyed meeting you both and hearing about your life and where you live. I have often wondered whether you are still thinking of a move to France. I hope that you are both well. Perhaps we’ll see you again if you revisit France. Very best wishes from Jane and Tony.

Great place to stay
Really enjoyed my stay here. Very warm welcome from Tony snd Jane. The gite/cottage was so well equipped I felt as though I was at home. Nice and quiet if you want to relax, doze off in the lovely garden or go for a swim. Thoroughly recommend!

Perfect peaceful location for two with pool and amazing views.
We received a warm welcome from Tony and his wife Jane who couldn't do enough to help throughout our stay. The cottage had everything you need including a well-equipped kitchen for self-catering, as well as a BBQ. A stunning pool with equally stunning views provided a great place to unwind after a day's sightseeing. It was an easy 45 minute drive from Bergerac Airport and the location close enough to local amenities as well as must see destinations such as Pujols and Monflanquin. Local markets are in abundance, as are restaurants, and we enjoyed tasting the local produce at the local Prune and Nut museums! The local donkey at the end of the lane was quite spoilt with his occasional foodie treat!! We would love to visit again.

Delightful, everything two people could possibly want.
From the warmth of the welcome to the continuing hospitality and friendliness the owners were charming. Always willing to chat and offer advice if wanted they also recognised that sometimes we were quite happy to be left alone. Having good weather during our stay meant that the pool and gardens were a real bonus. If the opportunity ever arises we would not hesitate to go back. Thank you Tony and Jane.

Quiet location, great hosts ...our second visit!
Great location. A peaceful little village in Lot et Garonne. Perfect base for touring this area. Good local markets, fields of sunflowers and not too far away from Bergerac and even Bordeaux. Tony and Jane's local knowledge is useful when planning your outings. Seriously recommended!

What a Gem!
This little cottage has everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday. There are two patios both furnished with table and chairs and sun loungers in the private garden. There is sun or shade, whichever you prefer, throughout the day The pool is superb, it's a good size, heated, extremely clean and the views from the terrace are just beautiful. The pool terrace has a variety of seating/loungers and again in September we were able to find shade when we needed it. The surrounding countryside is really beautiful and the views from high up in the pretty bastide towns are stunning. The owners Tony and Jane are so welcoming and friendly. They will leave you to yourselves if you prefer but if you are happy to chat, so are they.

Excellent.
You are made to feel welcome the minute you arrive. This property is attached to the owners house but you have a full sense of privacy, with your own entrance and private garden. Jane and Tony have great suggestions of where to go and what to enjoy in the area. The night markets are a must. Also the golf course that is a few minutes away is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and felt extremely comfortable the whole time. Tony and Jane are tremendous hosts and you come away feeling like you have made lovely new friends. This Gite is excellent value for money.

A fabulous relaxing week with great company.
We returned to Tony & Jane's piece of paradise after visiting the first time in 2012. This time was even better, with great accommodation, great company from the hosts, great weather and the fabulous quiet relaxing location. We spent every day of our week relaxing by the large pool, taking in the peace and quiet and hot sun. We visited some excellent restaurants recommended by Tony & Jane with La Tete D'Ail at Cancon being superb and very recommended. Do not miss this one. Also visited 3 night markets, which are also a must do for the proper French experience. A big thanks to you both for another great holiday and we will be back.
