Charming Gites with a Swimming Pool in the Dordogne
Tranquillity assured in this charming setting surrounded by countryside of 30ha and situated in the middle of the "Perigord pourpre" "pourpre", the name deriving from the rich purple-red wines! A great place to unwind and remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of the city life and breath in some country air! The gites are ideally located for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits: walking, fishing, hiking, canoeing, biking, golf, etc. We are delighted to provide recommendations for walks and visits to the numerous castles, historic sites and tourist attractions in the area. Bidou lines the GR6 hiking trail. The proprietors, Paul, Leen, Louis and Arthur live discreetly on site.
Bidou, an estate with a history. On an invoice from 1532 Bidou had been already mentioned. It was in former days a wine field and dependance of chateau the Lanquais. An underground tunnel on our field proves the important link with the castle, these served during the several wars as an escape route against attackers.
The former winery was converted to 2 gites of each wide 80m². The gites were sympathetically refurbished to a high standard with eye on modern comfort privacy and authenticity. Everything you could possibly require for your holiday needs.
Take advantage of swimming in a heated swimming pool which is 10 x 5m. It conforms with all French pool security regulations. The pool is heated (depending off the weather) aprox. from mid april till mid october)
