About this location
The Aquitaine region
Aquitaine is home to the largest forest in Europe,the highest sand dune, one of the few rivers with a tidal bore, millions of acres under vines, more chateaux and historic buildings than you could possibly hope to see in a couple of years.
The climate is generally very good year-round. The local lore states that summer starts at the beginning of March and doesn't come to an end before the beginning of November. Even in the depths of winter the weather is normally fair, with cold days, but sunny clear skies which is much preferable to the cold, damp and rainy weather that can be found further north.
Year-round there are festivals of every sort: art, music and dance, sporting events and, of course, food & wine. In the summer months locals and visitors alike enjoy night markets with live music and guided torch-light tours of ancient bastides, such as Sainte-Foy-La-Grande.
Life happens at a slower pace here, even in our cities. This is a place to relax and enjoy simple pleasures. Here the quality of life is king. No rushing helter-skelter here and there. Lunch might just as well be leisurely and savoured as everything closes between 12 - 2!
Sainte-Foy-La-Grande sits at the intersection of the Gironde, the Dordogne and the Lot & Garonne departments. A mere 25 minute drive from the historic towns of St. Emilion and Bergerac, and home to one of the "100 best markets in France" there is no doubt that there are plenty of cultural activities easily accessed from the town.
Sporting enthusiasts will find plenty to interest them, and Les Terraces is pleased to be offer special rates for golfers at the highly prestigious "Chateau des Vigiers", a 10 minute drive from the house.
There are some excellent restaurants in easy walking distance from the house, (both fine dining and simply good food/atmosphere) and a few fun bars that are great for people watching.

"There is no better place in Europe to spend a relaxing holiday."
I would like to say we have had two holidays at this property, (Les Terraces) and are going back in 2014,there is so many gorgeous places to visit if you hire a car, St- Foy-la-Grande is a beautiful little town with many shops and bars if you don't have transport,you could also catch a train witch is a 10 min walk to the station,they are nice long walks along the river or hop into a canoe witch we did (at our age 67 & 69 ) and had so much fun, then just relax on the terrace for dinner and a glass of wine
Nothing is to much trouble for Alex and Graham, they are so helpful, very nice people and run a very nice clean holiday home,
Look forward to next year.
