The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

Les Granges is an ideal touring base for exploring the sights and produce of the region. Being situated close to some

of the most famous wine growing areas in the world. You can sample the delights of the Grandes Crus of St. Emilion, Pomerol, Medoc, Graves, Sauternes, Barsac, Loupiac, Monbazillac as well as the more affordable and every day wines of this region Bordeaux, Bergerac, Entre Deux Mers and Duras.

Bordeaux with its international airport at Merignac is about an hours drive and beyond Bordeaux are the beaches of the Atlantic Coast, two hours drive approximately (Archachon, Cap Ferrat, Dune de Pile).

Within an hour or so from Bergerac there are some famous bastide towns and chateaux of the Dordogne and Vezere valleys e.g. Beynac, Castelnaud, Domme, Montpazier, Sarlat, Les Eyzies, Chateaux Milandes and Byron.

Sainte Foy-la-Grande

Ste. Foy la Grande voted best market in France for 2014 is a must see. St.Emilion with it's famous 12thC monolithic church. Here you can tour the famous vineyards on a motorised train and take in the delights of the surrounding countryside. Climb the bell tower. Visit the catacombs and meander through the cobbled streets.

Also worth a visit is Bergerac, 20 minutes drive, the former principal town of the Dordogne. Here you will find wine and tobacco museums and the famous statue of Cyrano de Bergerac in the old town with its cobbled streets running down to the River Dordogne. Take a trip down the river on a converted tobacco barge taking in the sights and watching the kingfishers and herons.

There are many local restaurants within a short distance of Les Granges which offer 3 course lunches within wine for 12€. Well worth a visit is Le Camelia, and Castanets (both popular with our clients) and all about 15 minutes drive away and many more.

An hours drive away is the pretty town of Domme perched above the Dordogne River with its beautiful sandstone buildings and cobbled streets. Here you can explore the caves with wonderful displays of stalactites and stalagmites, well worth the effort!

The only problem our guests face is how to fit in all the sightseeing they wish to do and still have time to relax!
