Maison Metcalf, a spacious, 19th century, typically French Maison de Maitre country house is perfectly positioned as an ideal base from which to explore the breathtaking scenery and diversity of south western France. It is the perfect place where the entire family or a big group of friends can come together for that special holiday or celebration. We are situated in a rural setting, fulfilling that "let's get away from it all" desire, yet we are an easy cycle ride to the local village. The superb vineyards of Bordeaux and the popular Cognac region are near enough for wonderful day visits. The Dordogne, Gironde, Charente and Charente-Maritime are all within easy access. There are several market towns nearby and the area is well served by good local and international style restaurants.

Churches, abbeys, châteaux and museums are scattered throughout the country side making this spot ideal for those with an interest in the history of the area.

Whether it is a leisurely walk, a cycle through the country lanes, canoeing down the Dronne or relaxing on the beach of the lake at Le Paradou leisure park, one minute's drive away, this area has it all and more.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

On the cusp of the Dordogne you have also have easy access to the Charente and Gironde. The location is a very good position for exploring this region in France; Bordeaux, Perigeux and Angouleme are all under one hour away - the famous Unesco world heritage site St. Emillion is only 40 minutes away. If travel is now what you want to do, then much nearer to Maison Metcalf you can still visit underground cliffside churches, have fun in one of 3 Arbor parcs nearby, visit the beach and lake only minutes away from the house or just relax in the garden or swim in the pool.


"Few regions sum up the attractions of France better than the Dordogne." as one fairly well known guidebook has said. Alongside that you have easy access to the Charente and Charente-Maritime as well as the Gironde. Food, wine, history and fun are readily available around Maison Metcalf.
