View over the pool
Les Estournels from the South in the Spring. The vine over the terrace is not yet in leaf here!
The 'Blue Room'; main double.
View over the pool towards the 14th Century hunting lodge, in the evening light.
The 'Bread Oven' ideal for teenagers!
Large twin room made up as a double, opening onto breakfast terrace
The pool area has a gate at each end which can be locked for security when not in use.
Inside the 'Bread Oven'
There are many shaded areas in the garden to eat, read a book, sketch a scene.
Try canoeing gently down the Dordogne
Rocamadour, 23 km by car, but only 2.5 hrs on foot!  Beat the tourists & watch the sunrise there
Secluded breakfast terrace for two...
Eat out on the vine-shaded terrace
Wander through the local vineyards - on a clear day see the Auvergne yonder....
.... and along the 'petits chemins' directly from the house - forget the car for a day!
Help yourself to herbs from the herb garden - bay, thyme, mint, parsley and more...
From the kitchen straight onto the terrace
The vast Salon
The Salon has a wood burning stove for when the evenings are chilly.
The cave easily within walking distance.....if you can find it!

Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Laval, Lot, Occitanie
In a small hamlet tucked away up a charming valley, Les Estournels is a 4 bedroomed former farmhouse with generous sized rooms, including the huge baronial style converted barn-end which serves as the sitting room. A perfect spot from which to explore the local area, sample gastronomic delights, or simply relax by the private saltwater pool.

Technically the house sleeps up to eight, but ideally you would be four adults, using the main bedrooms, each with a bathroom (not ensuite). The 'bread oven' is popular with teenagers who can sleep in undisturbed! But it must be noted that there are no washing facilities in the bread oven. The final two single beds are in a room underneath the double bedroom, and being honest, there is no sound insulation between those two rooms. I lay all this out so potential clients can see that it...

Everything about the house was exactly as described, and as in the pictures. The location is amazing - very peaceful as everyone has said. The pool is fab - there is no 'shallow end', although there are steps, but that encouraged us to swim which was probably no bad thing. We loved the 'great hall' feel to the living room....

Management response:

Thank you Steff for that lovely review. And it is a valid point about one of the bedrooms being a "through" room. The house is ideally a two "proper" bedroom house with the bread oven for kids/teenagers. But there are the extra beds available if needed.

Firstly this is a stunning property at which to stay if you like old French farmhouse style, which we do. Do not stay here if you want modern everything because that just isn't the style. The grounds and the house are fantatstic and very well equiped with everything needed for a short or extended stay. House was very clean and...

Management response:

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review - and I would totally agree that reviews are worth nothing if the negatives perceived are not mentioned as well as the positives. As you describe so well, it is a country house, so occasionally one might expect a "visitor" in the roof space. This was dealt with immediately upon...

Sitting out on the terrace under the vine looking out over pool and the wooded hills beyond - it's hard to imagine a better place to be. A gorgeous cottage - easy to get to but feels properly remote. The best thing is there's no wifi - so after about 5 mins of grumbling from the kids and an apologetic...
