Cosy, luxurious and wonderfully individual, Patou is a beautifully converted ‘pigeonnier’ in France bursting with original features and quirky character. If you’re looking for charming accommodation and spectacular views then you’ve come to the right place.
Part of a cluster of renovated 17th century stone buildings, Patou is a truly unique little bolthole. The two floors are filled with distinctive features like chandeliers, antique furniture and authentic pigeon holes in the walls. And yet the apartment has been sensitively modernised to provide a whole host of contemporary creature comforts. Combine all of this with the services of a boutique hotel and the heavenly rural surroundings and you’ve got the recipe for a romantic and unforgettable holiday.
The house is situated in the Lot & Garonne region of south west France, just outside the 13th century village of Sainte Livrade sur Lot where you will find bakeries, supermarkets and an assortment of other amenities. This part of the country is known for its beautiful hills and valleys as well as for its sleepy villages and hilltop bastide towns, and life here is all about weekly markets, pavement cafes, wine tasting, antiques fairs, boat trips and picnics on river beaches. The wonderful chateaux of the Dordogne and Bordeaux are not far away, nor are the vineyards of Duras, Buzet, Bergerac and even Saint Emilion. It really is the most heavenly place.
The nearest airports are Bergerac, Bordeaux and Toulouse, and car hire is available at the airport. Detailed instructions can be provided for your route or a chauffeur can be arranged.
