This pretty barn conversion was originally chicken housing, although had more recently been used for pressing and fermenting grapes from the vineyard at the top of the drive. 'Le Perchoir' means 'The Roost' in English. With thick limestone walls and many character features, Le Perchoir has been sympathetically restored using traditional methods and materials local to the area. Our aim is to provide high quality and comfortable accommodation, while maintaining a low impact on the environment. Reclaimed timber and stone have been used wherever possible. We would like all our guests to have a relaxing holiday, unwind and enjoy the gentle and relaxing pace of life in this very rural and beautiful location.

'Le Perchoir' means 'The Roost' in English. With thick limestone walls and many character features, Le Perchoir has been sympathetically restored using traditional methods and materials local to the area. Our aim is to provide high quality and comfortable accommodation, while maintaining a low impact on the environment. Reclaimed timber and stone have been used wherever possible. We would like all our guests to have a relaxing holiday, unwind and enjoy the gentle and relaxing pace of life in this very rural and beautiful location. From the terrace garden, Le Perchoir overlooks meadows, farmland and a newly planted orchard. During May and June these meadows are dotted with many types of wild orchids, flowers and grasses. Nightingales start singing in April and we often see hoopoe birds and hear the elusive golden orioles. Outdoor seating and a barbecue are provided so guests can enjoy meals outside. The west facing terrace benefits from stunning sunsets and views overlooking the fields and orchid meadow. The above ground swimming pool measures 10m x 5m and sits above ground in the meadow adjacent to the terrace. Safety steps lock the pool securely when not in use. An all year round table tennis table is provided for guest use. Inside the open plan main room, the new kitchen area includes a dishwasher, fridge with small freezer compartment, washing machine and cooker. It is well equipped with plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and other kitchen tools and equipment. There is a round kitchen table and chairs. Two good size sofas provide comfortable seating for relaxing. We have also installed underfloor heating for use during the winter months. Having one double bedroom and one twin room, Le Perchoir sleeps four comfortably. A cot can be made available if required instead of one of the single beds. The separate shower room also houses the dry toilet. Those of you as yet unfamiliar with this little gem may be surprised to see that it looks almost identical to a conventional WC at first sight, but functions slightly differently. More information is available upon request should you require it. Fresh and clean, high quality bed linen, bath towels, tea towels and pool towels are provided upon arrival and thereafter on a weekly basis. We think this is more convenient and cheaper for our guests than you having to cart them all the way from your homes! Should you require a more regular change of linen or towels, this can be arranged at extra cost. Books and board games are available. WiFi use is included in the weekly rental charge. Le Perchoir will be available to use from 16.00 on the Saturday afternoon. We do remind guests the gite must be vacated by 10.00 on the day you leave to allow for cleaning. Inside the gite is strictly a no smoking area. We live with our two small dogs Ruby and Arnie in the adjacent farmhouse, and in a quest to be as self-sufficient as possible, can usually offer organic and seasonal homegrown, fresh honey and eggs for sale. Although Le Perchoir is self-catering, we are able to arrange for a 'supper service' to be delivered to your door on Tuesdays and Thursday should you like a night off from the barbecue. The local artisan baker is situated in Montaut a five minute drive away and provides the best bread and pastries for miles around. During August, Montaut is the scene for the weekly night market each Friday, where local suppliers come to offer their produce for sale. Local towns of Villereal, Castillonnes, Monflanquin and Cancon provide further shops, restaurants and excellent markets. All are a ten minute drive away. Visits to Chateaux Biron and Bonaguil provide history-filled dramatic locations and architecture. There are cycle routes and beautiful walks throughout the bastide towns and countryside. Local eateries with everything from pizzerias to Michelin-starred restaurants are a short drive away. The rivers Dordogne and Lot are a thirty minute drive from the gite, in Bergerac and Villeneuve-sur-Lot respectively. Canoeing is possible on both these rivers. Agen prunes are local to this area, as are foie gras, duck, walnuts and hazelnuts. Oh! and wine too! Along with the grand Chateau Monbazillac there are many smaller vineyards and many provide tastings. La Roque Gageac is the site of a 15th century troglodyte fort and is another worthwhile outing. There is a market a short distance away in one of the local towns on every one of the seven days of the week. We look forward to welcoming you to our quiet little haven in rural south west France.More
