Built in 1767, Villa Colette has been beautifully restored to curate a tasteful blend of charm and character with contemporary features. Whilst outside the white shutters and blue window frames speak to traditional French chateaux architecture, the interiors look alike something from a design magazine! Located in the heart of the bastide town of Monségur, this charming villa offers an escape from the world, just a one-hour drive from Bordeaux and within walking distance of the local shops and restaurants.

This spacious property can accommodate up to fifteen guests, perfect for a group of friends or large family gathering. The ground floor boasts the main entertaining spaces, with five bedrooms and a dormitory scattered through the rest of this enchanting building.

The reception area is separated into two parts, with an elegant dining room open to the kitchen and a stylish living room with three sofas poised around a charming fireplace, where you can feel cosy on winter evenings. Each space can be closed off from one another, or left open for a more sociable feel, offering you the best of both worlds. Whilst the dining table can seat twelve guests, for social evening meals, the vast kitchen island also offers seating for six, perfect for staggered breakfasts as you all rise for another day in the South of France. The kitchen itself is a work of art, equipped with two refrigerators, a freezer, microwave, dishwasher, induction hob and all the other necessities you could need.

The separate lounge offers a recreation room, with a pool table, books and board games, as well as a well-equipped bar. This atmospheric space opens onto a beautiful terrace overlooking the swimming pool, the perfect spot for some evening cocktails and a game or two.

The villa’s six bedrooms all seem to transport you into a different place, with elegant dressing rooms, spacious bathrooms and inspired décor. There are four double rooms as well as a fifth double room with a separate space for young children, including two bunk beds and two cots. The attic has been set up as a fabulous dormitory, with a bedroom for kids to share and a television room as well as two bathrooms.

Outside, the charm and elegance of this villa does not end. Surrounded by lawn and tall, luscious trees, you can sit for hours under the dappled light of the branches. There is a large outdoor dining area, as well as lounge seating where you can enjoy long evenings under the stars. The heated swimming pool is the icing on the cake at this alluring property.

Villa Colette is located in the heart of the bastide town of Monségur, this charming villa offers an escape from the world in south-west France, just a one-hour drive from Bordeaux. Set among beautiful countryside, with picturesque vineyards and pretty villages, we cannot recommend this area enough.

Monségur is a beautiful example of a bastide town, with plenty of shops, restaurants and supermarkets for you to enjoy. On Friday mornings, there is a weekly market where you can buy all sorts of local produce to cook in the villa’s fantastic kitchen. La Pièce De Boeuf is a favourite local restaurant, known for its locally grown and raised produce and lovely quaint interiors.

The larger town of La Réole is under a twenty-minute drive away. Dating back to the 12th century, this historic town is well worth the visit. As you amble around the narrow lanes, you will spot half-timbered houses and beautiful historic architecture. In the summer months of July and August, there are night markets in the town with delicious food stalls, good wine and live music, perfect for an atmospheric evening out.

The charming town of Duras also plays host to pleasant weekly night markets from July to early September, as well as more events throughout the year. Wine-lovers will also enjoy the inspiring Maison des Vins just to the south of the village whilst history lovers can visit the Château de Duras with its fascinating history dating back to the 12th century. Overflowing with cafes, restaurants an afternoon spent enjoying the towns delights would not go amiss.

For some outdoor adventures, you can head off on a canoeing trip in the Garonne and Dordogne rivers or explore this beautiful region via the many beautiful hiking and cycling trails and horse-riding. There are also golf courses scattered across the countryside. For families, the waterpark towards Bergerac, or the tree-top activity centre are a great choice.

Local wines and vineyards are an important part of any trip to the south of France! With Bordeaux so close, its world-renowned vineyards make for a great day out. You can arrange tours of the wineries and of the city itself, heading to La Cité du Vin or taking advantage of the vibrant restaurant scene. On top of its grapes, Bordeaux boasts amazing architecture and some of the brilliant museums.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Beautifully renovated, the charms and beguiling nature of this charming villa make it perfect for families with children. The main entertaining space can be left open plan, so you can keep an eye on kids with ease. There is one family style bedroom, equipped with a double bed, as well as two bunk beds and space for two cots, perfect for a young family to share and enjoy their own space. Upstairs in the attic, the dormitory style bedroom will make every night feel like a sleepover for the lucky little ones that make it their home away from home! The attic boasts a separate lounge and two bathrooms, so kids really will feel like they have their own space, and they can leave all their mess up there!

Of course, the private swimming pool is sure to be a highlight for any children in your group, providing hours of entertainment all throughout your stay, and heated so they can play and splash about long into the evenings. Family meals are best spent outside on the terrace, enjoying good food and conversation as you dream up the next days activities, getting little ones involved in the planning!

One of the best ways to explore the south of France is by bike. As a family, you can cycle through the surrounding landscape, visiting the charming markets and admiring the historic architecture. You can take pause to enjoy a delicious lunch and ice creams, before climbing back on your bikes to explore more of the charm and history in this part of southern France.

The river Garonne is a just a short drive away, with a riverside beach at Parc de la Filhole in Marmande which is supervised through the summer months so you can be assured of your kids’ safety. There are also areas for skateboarding, ball games and cycling. Lac de Beaupuy is another pretty spot for walking and cycling, as is the path along the Canal de Garonne.

For water sports, you can take the whole family on a canoe trip along the Garonne, or along the Dropt river, both easily reached within a thirty-minute drive. There is a fun inflatable waterpark at Lac de Clarens that kids will adore, and Bergerac offers all sorts of family-friendly activities including a waterpark and boat trips.

Reviews

  • Superb villa

    on 10/09/2022

    The house was just stunning. Each room was tastefully decorated with modern furniture and the whole house had a feeling of “luxe” about it. There were 5 main bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, and each bedroom was beautifully furnished in distinct luxurious decor.

  • Wow, wow, wow!

    on 10/07/2022

    The house, the village, and the hosts are exceptional!! The house is incredible - a lovely mix of old glamour and modern design. It is so spacious and easily accommodated our group of 10 from grandparents to kids.
