Set in rolling Dordogne countryside – perfect for couples
Lafont is an old farm steading, nestling in the rolling Dordogne countryside near St Martial Viveyrols. Set within glorious gardens and grounds, Lafont consists of a range of buildings centred around a courtyard, complete with a well and a bread oven. There is also a swimming pool, surrounded by decking, with wonderful views across the hills. The gite is a conversion of part of a traditional French single-storey barn and backs on to an orchard, with horses grazing in the fields behind. Well-behaved pets are very welcome and there are superb walks right from the door. Lafont gite is rural and secluded but not isolated; the lively village of Verteillac is a few minutes’ drive where you will find bars, a boulangerie and a supermarket. There are several other bars and restaurants close to Lafont where you can sit and watch the world go by.
Our one bedroom self-catering gite is ideal for couples and is pet friendly. The gite is opposite the main house yet is entirely secluded. It has its own private patio with table and umbrella, an outdoor area with reclining chairs for the all-important sunbathing and there is also a BBQ.
The gite is open plan with a mezzanine double bedroom and a fully-fitted, well-equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher, electric oven, gas hob and fridge. The bathroom has a walk-in Italian type shower, WC and basin.
Wi-Fi is available and the gite also has a tv with English Freeview channels.
Guests have use of the swimming pool (shared with the owners), as well as the extensive gardens and grounds. There is also a games room with pool table and dart board as well as a selection of board games and books.
Lafont is dog-friendly and we have abundant lawns and fields ready to be explored. We have our own dogs so your pet must be sociable and friendly. We also have two horses which graze in the fields behind the orchard.
Surrounding area and things to do
Lafont is situated about an hour south of Angouleme, close to the villages of Verteillac, Lusignac and Saint Martial Viveyrol. Verteillac is a lovely village with all the amenities you could need – shops, bank, bars and restaurants. There is a nice bar/restaurant in both Lusignac and Saint Martial Viveyrol. A lovely place to visit is Aubeterre Sur Dronne, about 15 minutes by car. The nearest town is Riberac which takes about 10 minutes by car. Riberac has everything you could need from a large town and hosts a great market every Friday. Bergerac is about an hour to the South and well worth a visit.
The area is great for walking and cycling and we can provide bikes free of charge. Archery is also available at the house. Kayaking is widely available at Poltrot, Brantome and Riberac.
