You must be very lucky, you have clicked onto probably the most awesome hidden gem in the South of France. If you are looking for a beautiful secluded romantic location, situated high up on a set of endless ridges in the Lot and Garonne district with spectacular views, a lovely pool (for your use only) adjacent to a beautiful ancient stone cottage with many authentic features then you’re prayers have been answered. I feel totally confident in saying that you will not be disappointed. It is not called Gite Quietude for nothing; this is calm and tranquillity at its best situated on a quiet but working farm with only two other habited properties.

I feel totally confident in saying that you will not be disappointed. It is not called Gite Quietude for nothing; this is calm and tranquillity at its best situated on a quiet but working farm with only two other habited properties. Facilities are available 10 mins drive in Levignac-de-Guyenne; shop, bakery, bar etc, another 5 minutes and you can be in Duras with its ancient fort and more extensive facilities. Large towns such as Marmande and Miramamont le Guyenne are less than 20 minutes drive; both have supermarkets and a wide variety of retail therapy. If you are seeking chavvy noise, the company of equally chavvy neighbours, nightlife and general mayhem please look elsewhere; it goes without saying however that well behaved children and pets are welcome!! For 2019 there are three new additions; 1) A mezzanine floor in the barn provides another bedroom (total 3 bedrooms in main gite) and ensuite bathroom amongst old beams and a view of the stars as well as a games room downstairs! 2) An artists studio separate from the main gite provides another romantic bedroom with amazing views suitable for teenagers / romantic couple as well as providing a small art studio! 3) New modern shower room down stairs with extra wcMore

great location - so quiet - hence the name! but near enough civilisation for loads of other activities. Definitely recommend for a holiday in or out of season - I look forward to visiting again soon. Thanks to Yuri too!

We had the most fabulous two weeks at Gite Quietude. We hired a car from Bergerac airport and were drinking wine by the pool in the glorious sunshine within an hour. The views were spectacular from every angle yet never over looked by properties nearby....More

About the neighbourhood
The countryside here is beautiful; with lots of variety. In 10 minutes you can drive from Tuscany (the “Petit Italy” area North of Loubes Bernac to rural Herefordshire (the countryside South of Levignac de Guyenne). For some reason most people from the UK feel at home in the countryside here, rather than being in a beautiful but “alien” environment. There is a unique microclimate, (centred on Duras and only extending about 10 kilometres in each direction), with an amazing amount of sunshine (average over 2500 hours annually). If you look at the map, you'll see that Duras is right in the centre of a white 'lozenge' running from North West to South West, it is bordered on all sides by the green areas www.Gitequietudefrance for further info
