In the master bedroom you’ll find a super king bed with a quality, deep sprung mattress. 

The second bedroom has a comfortable zip and link bed, also with a deep sprung mattress and topper and can easily be set up as either a super-king or two 3ft singles (we will check your preference once you’ve booked your stay). Luxurious Egyptian cotton bedding and towels are included for all guests.

This quaint farmhouse also has a mezzanine, with a quiet reading area and the option to have a comfy sofa bed within the private area, perfect for an additional two guests if required.

Kitchen and dining

Downstairs you will find a large fully equipped kitchen including a SMEG gas range cooker, dishwasher and Lavazza coffee machine with milk frother, all ideal for the creative cook! With its traditional wood burning stove and armchairs, this is the perfect spot to relax with a glass of something nice while the dinner is cooking.

The dining area has a farmhouse table seating 6, and a traditional dresser containing Denby crockery and oven to tableware.

Utility area

The house is equipped with everything you need to do your laundry, including washing machine, clothes airer, ironing facilities and washing products to get you started. 


In the lounge guests have sublime views across the valley to one side, and the beautiful lawned gardens to the other. It is well equipped with a flat-screened tv, Freeview UK channels, DVD player, music system and comfy sofas. The newly fitted log burner completes this perfect area to relax after a day exploring.

Garden and terraces

The private garden in Le Four a Pain is enclosed with a traditional French stone wall. It has a large terrace, surrounded by soft planting, olive trees, a palm tree and herbs along with steps up to the large lawned area.

Here guests will find (and can pick from) delicious fruit trees. It’s perfect for escaping the hot summer sun and for those in search of the shade. It’s well equipped with a table and chairs, along with a barbecue for alfresco dining.

In a secluded spot of the walled garden, there is an additional raised terrace with sun loungers and parasol, perfect for a quiet read. Wooden doors from the walled garden open out onto a lavender lined pathway, giving guests private access to the shared 11.5 x 5m pool, which boasts beautiful views over the Châtignac valley. 

Wood fired hot tub

On the terrace guests will find a luxurious wood fired hot tub. Heated by wood and including air jets and ambient lighting, it’s the perfect spot to sit back and relax with a glass of something. As well as being a great star gazing location on clear evenings.

Please note the first basket of logs is with our compliments, there is a small charge for additional baskets after that. Hot tubs are emptied and disinfected before refilling for each new booking. The water is tested by us daily and we will change the water regularly depending upon usage.
