A beautiful stone cottage in South West France – La Petite Maison, Castillonnes

Vintage Travel is delighted to augment its already impressive South West France portfolio further with the arrival of a beautiful stone cottage in South West France, La Petite Maison.

La petite maison

Nestled in French countryside at its most serene, within walking distance of the town of Castillonnes that overlooks the leafy valley of the Dropt, you’d be hard pushed to find a more idyllic spot.

This open plan and modernised cottage can sleep 4-5 guests comfortably.  The wooden spiral stairs that lead up to the mezzanine promote the cottage’s quaintness. Likewise the original roof trusses give the feeling of authenticity and history. The kitchen, living room and dining room are in one large open plan space, which is airy and light.

The master bedroom is also on the ground floor with its own convenient shower room.

Upstairs on the mezzanine there is a further bedroom built around a lovely rustic roof truss. This beautiful mezzanine has a useful landing area, perfect for reading, relaxing and deliberating the quaintness and character of this delightful cottage.

Outside the sparkling pool invites you to take a plunge, while the pretty garden with well-kept lawns is wonderful place to laze away the day. The exterior eating area is covered by a pergola terrace but with an ample poolside terrace just yards away, one is really spoilt for choice as where to settle down to eat and drink in the fresh and clear rural South-Western France air.

If you can manage to drag yourself away from La Petite Maison and all its charms, the Bastide de Castillonnes is just a short walk away. Castillonnes was founded in the 13th century and there are numerous historic buildings to explore and muse away a morning or afternoon. Quality bars and restaurants are also plentiful in this interesting town if you decide not eat in the beautiful surroundings of La Petite Maison.
