Grand Pailley Bas is a large former farmhouse sitting in approximately two acres of grounds surrounded by sunflowers, wheat fields and prune orchards and has unique 360 degree panoramic views of the valley it sits in.
The area is rural and offers holidaymakers complete peace and tranquility.
The farmhouse is split into two, with the Gîte accommodation at the front of the farmhouse and us residing on site at the back of the property with our own entrance.
We are on hand, should you need us, but if not, you will have total privacy.
The Gîte has three double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite and the other two share a large bathroom with both bath and shower facilities.
You will sleep in complete comfort as the two larger bedrooms offer six foot superking zip divans (which can be split into singles, should you prefer) and the smaller room a five foot king size bed.
The Gîte has its own lounge and dining area and there is well equiped kitchen. In the lounge there a UK Freesat TV with DVD player and free fast satellite wi-fi broadband.
To the front, there is a large garden laid to grass with a BBQ area, a large wrap around terrace and a 8 x 4 metre swimming pool for your exclusive use.
"Fen and Ian were waiting to greet us and proved to be wonderful hosts. Most of the time you didn’t know they were there, unless it was to clean the pool or check that we were OK, or to offer suggestions of where to visit"
Everywhere in the region you will find quiet roads, fields of sunflowers, traditional Bastide towns, small picturesque villages, vineyards - as we are in the Côtes de Duras region, and orchards of plum trees grown for the delicious Pruneaux d'Agen, a local speciality.
