The adjoining countryside contains a wealth of leisure activities, from chateaux and churches to water sports and vineyards, and just about everything in between. The comprehensive gîte manual contains information on the full range of amenities both close by and within up to 90 minutes’ drive of Villa Platane.
There are tennis courts and golf courses, and leisure lakes with sandy beaches within easy driving distance, for all the family to enjoy. Activities such as fishing, horse riding, golf, canoeing, and cycling can also all be indulged close by.
The Ocean, with long sandy beaches hidden behind pine forests, is a two-hour drive away; but why do you need the sea with so much else to occupy you closer to home? Visits to other Bastide towns and spectacular natural caves have also been a hit with guests. For something more leisurely, explore castles, chateaux and splendid formal gardens or a zoo?. It’s your choice: to immerse yourself in all this fine region of southern France has to offer – or simply to relax at Villa Platane.
A feature of the region is the popular weekly markets in towns and villages, and the night markets and marchés gourmands during the summer season. In December, there are Christmas markets in Eymet and many of the nearby towns and villages, worth a trip just to soak up the regional atmosphere and discover treats not available at home. Participate in Christmas Carols in the Square in Eymet and enjoy a different take on Christmas away from home. We even provide a decorated tree. Then there is the local take on New Year celebrations to offer a different experience at the turn of the year.
Our gîte is designed for all year round living, so think outside the box for your next break.
