There are three bath/shower rooms to ease queues for the facilities at busy times. One is ensuite in bedroom 1. A special feature is the 10,000 square metres of parkland gardens and a wooded area. In pride of place is a 300 year old London Plane tree ('Platane'), which provides welcome shade in the summer. The large 12 x 6 metre pool which has had a new salt-water filtration system, has an adjoining rustic summer kitchen which has proved most popular for alfresco dining by the pool.

About the neighbourhood
The Villa Platane is 3 kms from Eymet, a popular and picturesque bastide town. The surrounding northern Lot et Garonne, and southern Dordogne departments have an abundance of churches, chateaux, pretty towns and villages, and, of course, vineyards. The landscape is varied with flat plains, steep hills and plentiful viewing points. Within an hour's drive are spectacular natural phenomena such as neolithic caves and troglodyte homes. Further away is the glorious atlantic coast with sand dunes and a warm micro climate, from Arcachon in the south to La Rochelle in Charebnt Maritime.
Getting around
Access to a car is desirablel, since there is no public transport in this largely rural area. Transport can be arranged for non-drivers and those who prefer not to drive themselves on unfamiliar roads.
