Just south of the Dordogne in the region of Lot-et-Garonne in southwest France, Bassivière are five boutique holiday apartments in an original 17th century farmhouse. The barn and the medieval tower now house luxurious loft apartments with contemporary industrial design. The entire property has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere with lots of space. It’s embedded in nature and has all the comforts one could want. There are 5 loft-style apartments of which four are within the old barn and the fifth is in the original Pigeonnier. The apartments are about 100 to 140 square meters and each of them has a different layout with creative and fun sleeping areas for the kids. Bassivière sits on private 2.5 acre plot, and is surrounded by vineyards and fields of sunflowers. The apartments have access to an outdoor swimming pool and private terrace. I have visited this region of France a few times and I love it. For more information & bookings you can visit their website or Welcome Beyond. Unfortunately they are already fully booked in July & August (I know because I have tried to book one of their apartments) but they do have availability in June.
