Hi, we’re Martyn and Tas, owners of Le Seguinet. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to our lovingly restored holiday retreat in the beautiful historic Lot-et-Garonne (Aquitaine) region of France.
Our 18 acre private enclave comprises three sumptuously renovated properties, which sleep 12, 5 and 5 guests respectively. The properties can be rented separately for family and friend stays, or the estate can be rented as a whole. The stunning environment of the estate of Domaine de Seguinet, makes this an ideal location for weddings, family and friend get-togethers, and even as a film location.
Our hearts and souls went into the extensive restoration work of the 200 year old buildings, recreating some of the region’s rich history back into their foundations. We are currently rebuilding the millhouse/forge that formerly made cannon balls for Napoleon’s armies!
All the work was carried out with our guests’ comfort in mind. The fabulous original stonework has been exposed and beautiful high ceilings have been restored; the French doors and windows open up space and light, giving wonderful views to the gardens.
There’s plenty to explore around the grounds, where guests can lose themselves in the gardens, eat fruit from the orchard, paddle or go boating on the lake. Le Seguinet is also an idyllic setting for children, who can spend days exploring the grounds and setting up camp for their very own French “swallows and amazons” adventure. For the younger ones there are swings and a toddler slide available.
The rivers Lemance and Briolance border the estate, where children and adults alike can enjoy tickling trout, basket catching crayfish or wading down to the lake where they can experience wild swimming. Guests can fish in the lake, in the mill stream and even in the ornamental pond. Alternatively relax in our sun loungers, take a nap in the hammock and in the summer months when you need to cool down, you can swim in the pool, or a take dip in the refreshing lake.
Local Region & Things To Do
Le Seguinet is set on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Saint-Front-sur-Lémance in the heart of the Aquitaine region on the borders of the rivers Lot, Garonne and Dordogne. An area characterised by lush valleys, where rivers run through, poppy and sunflower fields blanket the vista and enchanted forests dot the landscape.
You can walk into the village (2 minutes) to buy fresh bread and croissants every morning and within a 4-5kms there are several small towns with stores and markets. Le Seguinet is just 10 minutes drive from the town of Fumel, where you’ll find many large supermarkets, restaurants and shops.
There are plenty of cultural attractions in the region, with numerous famous bastide towns (fortress towns) and chateaux nearby, and well worth a visit. We recommend: Belves, Monflanquin, Monpazier, Villefranche-du-Perigord, Villereal, Issigeac and Chateau de Biron to mention just a few. The beautiful town of Sarlat is only a 45 min drive away.
The region is wine and food lover heaven, with its long history of gastronomy and wine culture. Visit the vineyards of Bergerac and Dordogne, or Cahors and bring a bottle or two back to enjoy at Le Seguinet. And of course, eating out is part of the French way of life. Leisurely lunches can be enjoyed at great value, with most restaurants offering a three course lunch menu from around 12 euros including wine. For those looking for a haute-cuisine experience, there are some superb restaurants in the local region, including Michelin star restaurants in Pujols (40 mins) & Agen (40 mins). Just 10 min drive away you can dine in one of two restaurants, located at the foot of the historic Chateau de Bonaguil.
There are plenty of outdoor pursuits for adults and children, nature lovers and adventure sports enthusiasts, such as canoeing, hiking, cycling, kayaking, rafting, canyoning, golf, wild swimming, tree climbing, fishing and lots more!
