Description of the Marmande vacation villa rental
In a peaceful rural location in Lot-et-Garonne, adjoining Aquitaine and the Dordogne, 4 km from the pretty village of Seyches, Le Bouge is a light, bright and charming early 18th century turreted petit chateau with beautiful countryside views.

The house sleeps upto 12 people comfortably and has five bedrooms, two bathrooms and two shower rooms. It is lovingly furnished to a very high standard, with a tasteful mix of antique and contemporary furniture. It is full of period features but is also homely and comfortable.

The substantial eat-in kitchen and living areas are on the ground floor, comprising a formal dining room, sitting room, a study and an intimate salon. The dining room and living room open out on to the garden and pool area.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor, and all come with pretty, leafy views. The master suite has its own sitting room and is set across the entire top floor of the property. Most rooms have dual aspect windows.

The house is surrounded by its own grounds amid farmland and is approached by a private drive off a country road.

A north facing terrace at the back of the house as well as the surrounding acre of grounds around the house provide plenty of sunny and shaded outdoor space.
The accommodation is designed to be flexible. There are plenty of areas for families to enjoy each other’s company, as well as quiet areas for reading a book or a snooze. Cots are available upon request.

Set in three hectares of grounds and farmland, the property boasts lovely country views. The house is surrounded by its gardens and mature trees. The south-facing pool measures 11m x 5m.
