The domain of 1,5 hectares houses two beautiful cottages dating from 1829, that combine authentic charm with contemporary luxury and comfort.
We paid careful attention to tastefully decorating "La Maison", the main cottage that has three bedrooms and guarantees cosiness in its spacious kitchen.
The veranda of "La Maison" overlooks the courtyard with its pool, and has a panoramic view on the countryside. The courtyard itself has magnificent full-grown trees (chestnut & linden) that provide the necessary shade during the months July & August when reading your latest novel or when the barbecue is lit.
The second cottage, "L'Amitié", offers comparable advantages with its two bedrooms that are charming through simplicity and consciously maintained original characteristics. The (second) fully equipped kitchen and large living room with salon and fireplace give direct access to the terrace, where you can enjoy magnificent views of the fields surrounding Les Amis. Quality time guaranteed with a game in the garden or... how about a pétanque contest beside the pond?
Next to "L'Amitié" and with a view on the valley, you will find the swimming pool with two terraces and comfortable sunbeds. And... since 2015, we have installed a JUNGLE GYM for kids from 3-10 years!
Guests will have access to both cottages, a swimming pool, courtyard and 1.5Ha of fun! (Pool, Badminton, Soccer, Petanque, Ping pong..)
Interaction with guests
"La Maison" and "L'Amitié" each have their own entrance and living areas indoors and outdoors, but share the courtyard which allows to spend time together with family and friends,
Furthermore, there is a studio at Les Amis, situated at a distance away from the houses, called l'Atelier. This is where the host, Eric Raeves, is staying. Eric is your 'gérant', who is always ready to assist in every possible way yet fully respects your privacy at all times.
For questions about the area, things to do, daytrips, shops or emergency services, you can always ask Eric.
Eric enjoys taking care of our clients, hence a nice breakfast, lunch or dinner can be optionally offered.
In case three, maximum four people arrive by plane, Eric can arrange a pick-up at the airport.
Other things to note
For history lovers...
The fortified cities or bastides were built during the Middle Ages. At various places the same market still takes place as in the old days. You can read this at times when entering the bastide, e.g. “Le marché de Villereal depuis le 12ième siècle.”

The Lot & Garonne region is sometimes called the Tuscany of France, because of its many vineyards, cypresses and stone buildings that are typical for the area. You will find beautiful routes through valleys and also magnificent gardens in Les Amis’proximity.

Art and culture at your fingertips in the metropolis Bordeaux yet equally so in tiny charming villages such as Rocamadour and Saint-Cirq-Lapopie. These two fortified villages are being visited by 2 million tourists annually. In summer, the cities are very busy, however there are more calm places to go to such as ...
For the younger ones...
The magical Cauldron is an ecological children’s farm, whereas Parc en Ciel (tumbling in the trees) will appeal to the teenagers. At Le Moulin du Croc you can make your own bread.

In 56 BC the first grapevines were planted and the province was given the nickname “Little Rome”. In 1308 no less than (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)rrels, equaling 85 million liters of wine were exported to England! Visiting one of the region’s many vineyards is therefore a must do!
