- Domaine Courbiac -
Welcome on the website of “Domaine Courbiac”. Since the 1st of July 2010 we, Albert, Karla and Mark Wagenar, started a new adventure in France. We offer “a gite” to let, a small campingsite with six places and two furnished tents and a caravan and chambres d'hotes (bed and breakfast). With our website we like to inform you about this!
“Domaine Courbiac” is situated near the small village of Courbiac on the border of the Lot-et-Garonne, Lot and Tarn-et-Garonne in the region Aquitaine. Courbiac is about 485 miles (800 km) from Le Havre. This region, situated in the South West of France, offers you a great ambiance of hills, cultural and recreational possibilities. Also you will find lots of orchards. In summer you can enjoy the beautiful yellow colour of the sunflower fields. On the markets lots of fruit and sunflowers are available. Due to the mild climate the summers are long and warm and the winters are cold and dry.
Lot, Garonne, Tarn and Aveyron are rivers which flow through this region. There are lovely villages to visit near the rivers and lots of possibilities for canoeing.
Of course we will do everything to make your holiday enjoyable. We like to give you all kinds of information about the surrounding of “Domaine Courbiac” and provide you with walking- and cycling- tracks. If you like we can escort you to a winemaker or “brocante” market.
A few times a week we offer you the possibility to use “table d'hotes”. On Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday we offer you a meal for the price of € 20,00 a person (€ 10,00 for children until the age of 10). The meal consists : an entrée, main course, dessert and coffee or tea and wine and sodas during the meal. When you arrive on Domaine Courbiac, you will find more information about the “table d'hotes” in the information guide. If you would like to have table d'hotes on the day of arrival we request you to inform us in advance about this by email.
Bicycles for rent
For € 45,00 a week or € 7,50 a day you can rent a bicycle. We have 3 bicycles for adults and 1 bicycle for children.
When we bought the house and its “Domaine”, we discovered that a great part of the domaine is protected nature. There is a beautiful flora and fauna to be discovered on our domaine but also in the area around our domaine. In the summer you can hear frogs and crickets. During the day you can see all kinds of butterflies visiting the beautiful flowers in our garden. In April and May you can find the most rare orchids in our garden but also on the plateau above our domaine. The walk to the plateau is outstanding and the view from the plateau is even better.
