Sainte Foy-la-Grande

The mature garden with small fish pond leads down to the beautiful river Dordogne - a paradise for fishing lovers. There is a beautiful private swimming pool located in the grounds. There are three bikes available for the use of guests to explore some of Dordogne's beautiful countryside and villages.

The local area

St-Emilion is a large wine producing area, and due to the number of notably good small vineyards, and the diversity of the terrain, there are many different styles. However, on the whole St-Emilion wines are rich, warm wines which have an easier charm to some who are beginning to appreciate Bordeaux wines. They have a high concentration of the Merlot grape which leads to a round, fruity and often alcoholic wine (sometimes 1% stronger than Medoc wines). 'Cotes' St-Emilion are well-coloured, medium bodied perfumed wines yet can show a tannic, powerful complexity. These wines age beautifully, although they can often be drunk earlier than a wine from the Medoc or Graves appellation. 'Graves' St-Emilion is close to the Pomerol appellation and has many of its lush, fruity characteristics. The wines usually have a deep fruitiness and can usually be drunk reasonably young, yet are ageworthy.

St Emilion is a great place to go for lunch or dinner and see the monolithic church cut into the rock face and learn the secrets of the catacombs.

Bergerac There are several restaurants in 'old-town' Bergerac, set among the medieval half-timbered streets, and open-air cafes where you can pass a very pleasant hour people watching.

Up from the old town, there is a newer part to Bergerac, with more conventional streets and a larger range of 'modern' shops.

The wine museum is set in a lovely medieval building while the National Tobacco Museum is also based here in Bergerac (tobacco is still grown in the region), and is apparently very interesting. After exploring Bergerac you can take an organised boat trip (bagarre) up the river (start from the car-park at the bottom end of the old-town) to see the town and the nearby countryside from a different perspective. Note - you can safely ignore all mentions of Cyrano de Bergerac, who had nothing to do with the town but is none the less well represented in statues and memorabilia!

Horse riding is available locally.

Chateau de Vigiers Golf Club is a 30 minute drive
