There are many places of interest to visit in the area and every day there is a local market, within 30 minutes' drive, with farmers selling delicious seasonal produce and local craftsmen selling their wares.Should you want some exercise, running in the beautiful countryside is tranquil and safe. The terrain is great for cycling, but should you prefer somewhere flatter, you can use the cycle track that runs from Sauveterre de Guyenne to Bordeaux.There is a golf course about 20 minutes away. Horse riding is available nearby and an open air pool and tennis courts are located in Monsegur, 6 minutes drive away.There are wine, strawberry and tomato festivals in the season, and between mid-June and mid-September, there are weekly night markets to dine al fresco and listen to local music.The beautiful city of Bordeaux is an hour away, and Bergerac is 50 minutes through the vineyards.St Emilion is 35 minutes away and is beautiful.
Location description from owner
The Aquitaine region
The Aquitaine region of South West France spreads from the Atlantic coast to the border with Lot et Garonne.The Gironde department, around Bordeaux, is home to some of the world;s most celebrated vineyards, such as those in the fairly flat Medoc, west of the river Gironde, and the hilly areas around St Emilion. Agriculture is very important to the region and Aquitaine grows half of France's strawberries and most of the prunes. The tomatoes from Marmande (about 30 mins away) are known all over France.The period between May and October usually has beautiful weather. Temperatures can reach up to 40 degrees during August, but are generally around the 28 degrees region.The Atlantic coast has many interesting towns to visit: Arcachon (1 hr 40 Mins away), Lacanau for pro surfing (1 hr 30 mins) and Biarritz (3hrs) for surfing and the Spanish coast, are all great to visit, but are best avoided in July and August as these are very popular tourist destinations for French holiday makers.
Dieulivol is in the midst of vineyards and orchards and is therefore a good location to explore the wine country.Close to the bastide town of Monségur (6km) and the chateau of Duras (10km) the area is well known for the summer music and night markets where locals and visitors gather for great French country food.The Monségur 24 Hours of Swing takes place around the beginning of July. A great event if you are a jazz enthusiast or if you just like open air music and a great vibe. Duras holds its Fete de la Madeleine around the 14th July with a fair, open air banquet and fireworks spectacular.
It is a great place for running or cycling, although not flat. The main cycleway, from Sauveterre, that leads to Bordeaux gets progressively flatter the nearer the city you get. There is canoeing, flying, gliding, riding, hot air ballooning (mainly in August) all in the area. Details of these
activities are provided to guests that stay at La Grange.

“5 Star plus Gite in a stunning location”
We have just returned from La Grange after a 2 week stay and want to go back immediately, the gite was everything you could want and more and the pool was tremendous. The views of the open countryside and valley from the pool area are breath taking. The location is perfect for visiting the many towns and we found the local night markets really good fun. If you love the countryside and want to stay in a beautiful home, then this is the place for you. Eric and Maureen, the owners, afforded us perfect privacy but when we needed to ask any questions, they could not be more helpful and were excellent hosts. All in all a fantastic time was had.
“Very beautiful and relaxing”
my friend and I came to stay with our young boys (1 year and 3 years). The gite was fully equiped with everything we needed for our stay, including a stair gate. The gite was welcoming, clean, and the beds were so comfortable! The weather was mixed whilst we were there but the times we had by the pool were glorious. The pool was super clean and had incredible views over the countryside. Maureen and Eric made us feel very welcomed and they had provided so much information for our stay in the area. My son adored exploring the garden and the house. Would definitely visit again.
