Ramond is a little piece of secluded heaven in SW France. Unmatched in the local area for privacy, you will not wish to leave this well-equipped retreat. Surrounded by orchards & vineyards, the pool (open May - Oct) is the heart of this home. With 4 ensuite double bedrooms, and flexible children's beds (3 triple bunks and mezzanine twin), a games barn & gym - this home is ideal for 4 families. The region is renowned for wine, sunflowers, prunes, foie gras and rivers. Plenty to explore....enjoy! Ramond has been lovingly restored by the current owners and consists of 2 barn conversions linked together.

Nearby is the downstairs shower room & utility room. On the other side of the property is the 'West Wing', which can also accommodate 2 families. Again, there are 2 adult ensuites, and a bunk room with an ensuite/shared bathroom. Up the spiral staircase is the mezzanine level, which can be set up as either a twin or a King room. There is also an impressive living room, with access to a patio and a large kitchen and utility room. All adult bedrooms have air conditioning. In addition to the living spaces, we have a large games barn (TV, DVD, games console, table tennis, table football, snooker/pool & darts) and also an air-conditioned gym. As well as the main heated pool (open May - Oct) the outside amenities also include a large trampoline, tyre swing, swing set, football net, basketball net and croquet. There are also plenty of boardgames/puzzles/books/Netflix/Amazon Video/wifi to keep kids amused inside if required! More

About the neighbourhood
Ramond is a unique, private property surrounded by plum orchards and vineyards. The nearby village of Saint-Sernin (3km) has a small shop, restaurant & tennis courts. Duras (7km) is the closest town, with a supermarket/petrol station, several restaurants/bars, castle and other amenities (bank, baker, estate agents etc). The nearest hypermarket is at Pineuilh (15km).
How to get there
Ramond is very well situated for airport access, with Bergerac only a 35 minute drive away. Bordeaux is a little further (approx. 1 hour & 15 mins). A hire car is essential if you have flown, as many local attractions require a short drive (vineyards, high ropes, canoeing, horse riding etc).
