Le Pigeonnier is the largest cottage at La Balie with three double bedrooms, a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living space opening onto a private outdoor courtyard which leads directly to the pool. A mezzanine floor outside the master bedroom provides some extra space for quiet relaxation.

The cottage has three double bedrooms, all with beautiful travertine-clad bathrooms. There is a large and airy master bedroom upstairs in the Pigeonnier tower and two further bedrooms downstairs – two charming doubles which can be made up with two twin beds or one super king bed. All the bedrooms are ensuite – the downstairs bathrooms have large walk-in showers and the master bathroom has a bath with an overhead shower.

La Balie is set amongst the rolling terrain and Bastide towns of the Lot-et-Garonne in South West France.

Explore local towns and castles, canoe the Dordogne, go wine tasting; or stay put by the pool for some serious R&R.

La Balie is a short drive from Monflanquin, a pretty bastide village chosen as one of the 100 most beautiful villages in France. There are shops, restaurants, bakeries and everything else you’ll need for your stay.

The beautiful valley of Gavaudun is a short stroll from the house where you’ll find a great circular walk through open woodland, the pretty village of St Avit and the stunning rock-hewn tower of Gavaudun.

There are masses of things to do in the local area; bustling markets for fresh fruit and vegetables, chateaux and castles to visit, wonderful vineyards and wine tastings, canoeing on the Dordogne or relaxing by our beautiful, heated, saltwater pool.

Originally a hill-top farm, all the cottages at La Balie have stunning views over rolling countryside. For some serious relaxation grab a glass of chilled rosé, listen to the ancient church bells peal across the valley and watch a spectacular sunset
