Serious about your Swimming

Vacation home in Lanquais
We can offer you a heated, salt treated Infinity swimming pool with a constant depth of 1.2 metres and 16.7 metres long. So if you want to keep up your lap swimming when on holiday then every 6 lengths of our pool equates to 100 metres. This will be one of the longest private pools in the area solely for your use, apart from myself as a regular swimmer. I was still swimming into November last year when we still maintained water temperatures of over 20 degrees, though in the warmer months 26 to 28 degrees can generally be expected. The pool will be closed November through to April.
We have ground source geothermic under floor heating for the main house and this also heats the pool, so if a September / October holiday suits you better then please check our calendar for availability. For safety reasons the pool will be closed between 10pm and 7 am.
Your main accommodation is a generous 1300 sq metres of contemporary living space over two floors, comprising of a large open plan kitchen, dining and lounge on the first floor, with uninterrupted views to the small lake of Lanquais, the Chateau de Lanquais and your swimming pool. Two generously sized bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms are situated on the ground floor with hallway and internal stairs to the first floor.
Our home has been newly built by local Stone Masons, Carpenters in the village and other local tradesmen, all designed in a local style, though it has all the benefits of modern methods of construction for your comfort. If you look at a picture of the front view of the house then your accommodation is to the left hand side and has an independent entrance at first floor next to the swimming pool. Access is by stone stairs to a small first floor terraced area where the principal door is located. You may wish to consider if this is suitable for small children or those less mobile.
We will be living in our part of the house during your holiday in order to maintain the pool and grounds and facilitate any other needs you may have, but rest assured that we will keep ourselves as discreet as possible during your stay.
You can get to us within 20 to 25 minutes from Bergerac airport which is only 11 miles away, and if you are hungry when you arrive we have a very popular restaurant in the village which is a casual 15 minute walk from your accommodation. We can pre-book a table for you if required.
There are numerous places to visit including the busy Sunday market at Issigeac, which is 8 miles from Lanquais, and we love the small 'Shabby Chic' café in the backstreets. Our all time favourite restaurant is the 'Belle Etoile' at La Roque-Gageac though this is 32 miles and a 53 minute drive, but it is a beautiful village built on the side of the cliffs by the river Dordogne and well worth the visit.
Other facilities include table tennis at your accommodation and 'free' fishing is possible in the small lake facing our house, though fishing in the other rivers and waterways generally requires a licence.
The village of Mauzac is just 9 miles away and sits on a particularly wide section of the river Dordogne where I regularly go open water swimming, and there are also small sailing yachts and canoes for hire. Mauzac almost seems undiscovered as it is not on the main tourist trail, we love to sit and watch the world go by with a coffee as it is usually very quiet even in season.
For those who like horse riding we believe that there are riding stables within 3 miles from Lanquais and we can check these for you if you have an interest.

5/5 Excellent

Your perfect holiday is guaranteed in this guest house
The house is incredibly beautiful and spacious. 2 Couples will have more than enough place to stay. The beds are very comfortable. You can eat either inside or outside (2 terraces, one just outside the kitchen and one downstairs). The kitchen is well equiped and you will have a fantastic BBQ to grill your food on. And the pool ... closer to heaven you won't get. Last but not least, the hosts Helen and Brian are just perfect.

Nature et calme assurés
Le gîte est très grand, confortable, dispose de tous et très propre. La piscine est magique. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques, avenants et très attentifs à ce que tout se passe bien. Le coin est calme et apaisant. Très bonne destination que nous conseillons vivement.

Super location avec piscine
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre semaine à Lanquais dans la maison de Helen et Brian. C'est une bonne base pour découvrir tous les trésors du Périgord. Accueil charmant et très prévenant. La maison est luxueuse et spacieuse. La piscine remplit toutes ses promesses. Séjour 100% réussi !

Un petit coin de paradis sur terre
La maison de style périgourdin est magnifique. La décoration est très soignée et d'excellente qualité. Le confort est total. Les chambres sont équipées de rangements très spacieux et la literie est parfaite (grands lits très confortables). Chaque chambre a une salle de douche digne d'un palace. La pièce de vie (salon, salle à manger, cuisine) est très grande et très bien équipée. Four, microonde, machine à laver, lave-vaisselle, tous les ustensiles de cuisine (ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas en location), TV (que nous n'avons pas utilisée). Les équipements extérieurs sont géniaux. Petite terrasse juste devant la cuisine. Grande terrasse en bas, devant les chambres. Magnifique piscine (elle aussi digne d'un palace) de quelques 16 mètres de long. Table de ping pong. Barbecue tout neuf qui fonctionne à merveille. Tout était parfait !!!! Et en plus, nos hôtes (Brian et Helen) sont charmants, discrets mais toujours là dès que nous avons eu besoin de quelque chose. Cette maison est parfaite pour un couple avec deux enfants ou 2 couples avec 1 bébé ce qui était notre cas.
