There is an open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area and separate bathroom on the ground floor. The bedroom is on the mezzanine floor and furnished with a king size bed. The location is picturesque, situated in wine country, surrounded by vineyards and sunflower fields in the village of Ribagnac, a few kilometers from the famous wine village of Monbazillac. A peaceful and tranquil retreat with the convenience of Bergerac airport just 15 mins away. Originally a barn, set within the grounds of our home, approximately 50 meters from the main house. The two properties have completely different outlooks, ensuring total privacy for guests. The gite gardens, terrace, courtyard and spa pool are for the exclusive use of our guests. The property is over 200 years old and believed to have been the home of the estate manager of the neighbouring Chateau Bridoire estate, which is a popular tourist attraction today. The gardens are planted with herbs, flowers, shrubs and many trees, such as plum, pear, cherry, apple, mirabelle, figs, almonds and hazelnuts. Guests are welcome to help themselves. The trees provide cool shade for hot days and there are beautiful views over the surrounding vineyards. The famous wine village of Monbazillac can be seen from the terrace. Night skies are unpolluted and provide a spectacular show of stars and planets. There is a telescope for keen stargazers. We welcome guests all year round whether summer visitors, out of season weekenders or house hunters looking for a base to find a place of their own. Longer lets considered. GOING THE EXTRA MILE We know that it is the little things in life that make all the difference and, with this in mind, offer our guests some additional options to make their stay that little bit more special. Welcome Basket/Dinner/Drinks, Breakfast We have put together a complimentary basket of goodies which will be waiting for you on arrival. This will include local red wine, nibbles, tea, coffee, biscuits, fresh bread and jam. In your fridge you will find sparking and still water, white wine, fruit juice, butter and cool bottles of beer. That’s your pre dinner drinks and Sunday breakfast taken care of! What about dinner! Just arrived, looking forward to starting your holiday and relaxing? The thought of looking for a local supermarket, shopping and preparing a meal is perhaps not what you had in mind. Would you like dinner to be ready and waiting for you? We are pleased to offer our guests a home prepared dinner, on the evening of their arrival. A selection can be made from our seasonal menu, but please do speak to us if you have specific requirements. Hair & Holistics Enjoy relaxing treatments, reflexology, hot stone therapy, massage, or have your hair styled at Les Chauprenades. We would be pleased to arrange an appointment for you with our popular, mobile, English speaking stylist/therapist. Please ask for details. Cycling We have 2 complimentary mountain bikes for use throughout your holiday. Golf Clubs We have quality golf clubs to hire if you wish to play one of several golf courses within a short drive. Airport Collection Exploring not for you, fancy a break from driving? Perhaps you would like to chill out, enjoy the peace and quiet, sit in the sun, relax in the gardens, read, listen to music, take a stroll or a cycle through the vineyards. We will collect you from Bergerac airport and return you for your homeward flight. Restaurant Taxi Service France, and the Dordogne region, is famous for its cuisine. Would you like to enjoy dinner with drinks at one of the superb local restaurants without worrying about getting home? We offer our guests a pre-arranged, door to door, taxi service to and from local restaurants. Further detailed information is available on the Les Chauprenades website or please do contact us directly. We appreciate that your holiday time is special and we are here to help in any way that we can. More
