LES HIRONDELLES is a traditional farmhouse of the Gironde. Sleeps 8 people.

Delightfully situated in a plum orchard on a hill, the farmhouse lies off the road between Monsegur and Duras, commanding beautiful views across the valley of the Dropt. French windows lead on to a gravelled terrace to the side and rear of the house, with a purpose built barbecue and a webber next to a vine-covered pergola, under which there is a table and chairs for alfresco meals. On the terraces are sun loungers, another table and chairs capturing the view and an umbrella. Four steps take you to the swimming pool level. The pool is kidney shaped eleven meters by seven and works on a salt system which makes the water very pleasant for swimming. The surrounds of the pool are paved with Cahors stone and retaining stone walls give an edge to a well planted garden. There is a small lawn to the rear of the property with secured swings. On the ground floor there is a huge living room, which is completely open planned; even on the hottest day you can escape indoors to the cool of this room. To the left, the main seating area is situated around a large open fireplace. There is a TV, DVD player and free to view box allowing you to access the standard UK channels.There is also wifi Internet access. To your right is a grand piano with a second seating area for playing cards, games, etc. A telephone for receiving incoming calls is also set for making outgoing local calls only, so that you may seek assistance if need be or make bookings at local restaurants.
There is a wood-burning stove with a large dining table, capable of seating 12 people comfortably.
There is a well fitted open plan kitchen with double sink, gas hob, electric oven, micro wave, dishwasher, magamix and fridge freezer, all set in pine units with ceramic tiled work top. The whole of the floor area is tiled with local Gironde tiles and scattered with pretty rugs.
