Accommodation at Grand Pailley Bas Gite in Aquitaine, France
Our Gîte Accommodation at Grand Pailley Bas
GRAND PAILLEY BAS is a former farmhouse which has recently been updated with thought and care for your comfort.
The house sits in grounds of 2 acres with an 8m x 4m pool for your exclusive use. There is a large covered and furnished terrace next to the pool if your preference is for shade and we have a further very private table and chairs in our small orchard offering total privacy if you wish for total peace and tranquillity. Your views looking up to the hamlet are to die for and every other year you will be looking at a sea of sunflowers in between. We are very fortunate to have 360 degrees of panoramic views.
The property is split into two with the Gîte accommodation at the front and the owners living in the rear part of the property. The Gîte comprises of 3 double bedrooms. One is en-suite, and the other two share a large bathroom. The smaller bedroom has a 5 foot kingsize bed and the larger two have 6 foot superking zip divan beds which can be split into twin beds should you wish to.
The Gîte has its own lounge/dining area and kitchen. There is free wi-fi and UK Freesat TV with DVD player. Outside there is a BBQ area, an extensive terrace and 8x4 metre swimming pool for your exclusive use.
We are situated on the borders of the Lot et Garonne, Dordogne and Gironde departments all of which offer an abundance of things to do and boast the beautiful and lively Bastide towns in the area. This is perfect cycling country and we can arrange bicycle hire and delivery if you wish.
There is the opportunity to meander down the river by canoe in Allemans du Dropt or on the River Dordogne a little further away. Colourful and vibrant markets in the local towns are most days of the week and in July and August night food markets, where you can sit and dine al fresco are a fun and sociable experience.
If you are wine lovers there are numerous chateaux spread across the area and many vineyards to visit including the local vineyards at Duras and Bergerac, and slightly further afield, the classic areas of St.Emilion, Graves and the Medoc. There are organised wine tours of these area, please click here.
We have three docile Golden Retrievers that you will not come into contact with unless you wish to, so consequently we are unable to accept other pets!
Children are very welcome, but please be aware of the stringent French laws regarding swimming pools which means that children must be supervised at all times whilst playing in the garden and pool area.
