    About this property

    Swim in a solar heated pool and relax on a vine-covered veranda at the Domaine des Champs, a large luxury villa in the Dordogne. Exposed beams and stone walls show the villa’s 400-year history, but you’ll find the modern conveniences you expect, including elegant modern bathrooms.
    This family-friendly villa has two large salons with a home cinema, cable TV and pool table, as well a “dressing-up” clothes and game consoles for the children. The grounds contain a fenced pond and all the outdoor activities kids enjoy. You’ll gather in the Mediterranean courtyard or the veranda, which has a bar, dart board, shaded dining area and barbecue. The property can accommodate up to 14 adults and 10 children with the option of renting out an annex apartment able to sleep extra 2 guests bringing the total capacity up to 26. 
    Just outside Montpon-Menesterol, the villa is a walk away from traditional French shops including the all-important boulangeries. With two supermarkets and a Wednesday morning market, you’ll have what you need to prepare meals in the fully fitted kitchen. Walk to the Chandos leisure park with canoeing on the river L’Isle, or drive to the Dordogne’s famed caves, fortified castles and vineyards.
    The nearest airports to this French luxury villa are Bergerac (40 min) and Bordeaux (50 min).

    The villa is situated in a semi rural area just outside the pretty village of Menesterol and only 1k from the market town of Montpon-Menesterol. It is ideally placed for easy access to Bordeaux, St Emillion, Arcachon beach resort, Bergerac and Perigueux.

    Montpon-Menesterol is situated on the banks of the River l’Isle which has a good range of traditional French shops including bakery, butchers, chocolatiers, bars, banks, post office, Tourist office, clothes shops, some excellent restaurants, 2 large supermarkets and a bustling weekly market every Wednesday morning. There is a train station running to Bordeaux and Perigueux. TVG connections are available from Bordeaux and Libourne.
    The large annual fireworks display on Bastille day (14th July).

    The last weekend in August the town of Montpon becomes a fairground every evening for 3 consecutive nights, ending in a superb fireworks display at the park.

    The Chandois leisure park is a few minutes walk from the villa and has a swimming lake and beach, snack bar, skating park, fishing lake, canoeing (river L’Isle) and motor boat hire, crazy golf, family sized go-karts, bike hire and a fantastic fireworks display in August.
     
    There is also a large outdoor public swimming pool just outside the town centre. The large lake resorts of Lac Jemaye & Lac du Gurcon are both within a 15min drive. Montpon-Menesterol is only 5k from the A89 motorway. The nearest airports are Bergerac (40mins) and Bordeaux International (50mins).

    With its prehistoric caves, fortified castles and picturesque villages the Dordogne valley has a lot to offer any visitor. Steeped in history going back thousands of years when Cro-Magnon man lived in the caves of the Périgord and left cave paintings in sites such as Lascaux and Les Eyzies, the region now boasts over 3 million visitors every year.

    The diverse landscape of Atlantic coastline beaches boasts some of the best surfing in Europe, and Arcachon Bay is crowned by Europe's largest sand dune: the Dune de Pyla (or du Pilat), nearly 3 kilometres long, 500 metres wide and reaching 107 metres in height.
     
    The city of Bordeaux is among the world's major wine industry centres. Bordeaux wine has been produced in the region since the eighth century. Saint-Émilion is one of the principal red wine areas of Bordeaux along with the Médoc, Graves and Pomerol. Saint-Émilion's history goes back to prehistoric times and is a World Heritage site, with fascinating Romanesque Churches, catacombs and the fantastic monolithic church made from a single block of stone.

    "The villa was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Lots of space for everyone. The owner was always available and helpful. I would recommend the property to friends and family. A car is essential for getting about."

    "We stayed here for 1 week over August, 2 families with 4 children under 6 years of age. Tracy had thought of absolutely everything and more. We arrived at the villa around 8pm and after an 8 hour journey we literally dropped all our bags and jumped into the pool. It was lovely and warm and the evening sun set was a perfect start to our holiday. On exploring the house room by room we could not stop saying WOW the little touches that made our holiday: in one of the children rooms was a complete wardrobe of dressing up clothes, the books and games made the children settle in straight away. The linen and bath towels were new and fresh, the beds lovely to sleep in. The whole villa was very clean and kept to very high standards. The gardens were amazing, a football pitch, go carts for adults and the children! Complete with a huge trampoline and swings / slides. The swimming pool was fenced off and active with a pool alarm, the pool was brilliant, big enough for both families with lots of sun loungers and outside dinning. I could go on and on, what I will say is that if you decide to have your holiday here you will not be disappointed, in fact like us you probably wont even venture out, but of course book early as we indeed to visit this little bit of paradise year after year!!!! Thank you Tracy for a wonderful memorable stay."
