Ooooh la la
Win a French Holiday

Soft, crusty French bread, ooozy camembert and a bottle of Bordeaux? Yes please!

Welcome to Les Noisettes – a beautiful french farmhouse, situated in the idyllic surroundings of the Dordogne….ahhhhh.

Surrounded by stunning vineyards and pretty open fields, this beautiful, rustic 3oo year old farmhouse is the perfect destination for families or friends looking for a relaxing retreat in the French countryside. With its pretty blue shutters, twinkly courtyard, original wooden beams and grand working fireplace, Les Noisettes cottage is as authentic as it gets.

The farmhouse sleeps up to 7 adults and is within easy reach of lots of gorgeous lakes, (see above piccie) to splash and swim in, set amidst beautiful greenery where you can happily laze and and enjoy yummy picnics all day long. Yum on.

Fancy a bit of culture? There’s wine tasting, music, theatre and theme parks all within easy distance. Or if you’re feeling Sporty Spice, grab your bicycle, (bicyclette) throw a string of onions, (oignons) round your neck and pedal your little heart out down to one of the many local villages where you will find bustling markets, (marchés) of the best local crafts (l’artisanat) and cuisine. (Merci GSCE Francais). Go for a mooch and you’ll discover oodles of stunning architecture too. 

So ma petit pois, I suggest you head over to their website and book yourself and your gang in, for some relaxing French fun and frolics immédiatement!
