French Connections

Find Holiday accommodation in France

The fabulous prize in our latest competition is a holiday at Domaine de Fumel in the beautiful Dordogne countryside near Boisse. This competition is running in conjunction with French Holiday Inspirations 2015, an ideas-packed guide to holidays across France, on sale at newsagents and online.

Domaine de Fumel is a luxury stone farmhouse complex of seven pretty cottages and a large swimming pool with panoramic views – all set in their own 53 acres of vines and farmland.

Dave and Bunty Cox have created an oasis of calm and tranquillity for the discerning holidaymaker, with a no children policy and a private and peaceful feel. Each one-bedroom cottage is beautifully restored and furnished, with fully equipped kitchens and queen or king size beds.

The cottages have a courtyard, barbecue, sunbeds and boules, there are figs and cherries to pick and wildlife abounds, including golden oriels and nightingales.

Discover the nearby medieval village of Issigeac, with its Sunday market, or drive to Bergerac on the river Dordogne. You can also see the famous cave paintings at Lascaux, the pre-history centre of Les Eyzies and Josephine Baker’s Art Deco château. Enjoy beautiful views, walks and river trips, shop for arts and crafts and savour local wines and food.

The prize week’s stay can be taken during April/May or Sep/ Oct 2016 and you can enter by following the first link below. (Travel is not included). Can’t wait until then to stay at the Domaine?
