The Dordogne region

Le Grand Bois is an old country farmhouse gite, close to the little Mediaeval Bastide Town of Eymet, on the unspoilt southern edge of the Dordogne, set amidst fields of sunflowers, vineyards and rolling farmland.

It is easily accessible from the channel ports or very convenient for Bergerac Airport which is only twenty minutes away and which has daily 'no frills' flights from Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Exeter, Leeds, Liverpool, Southampton, and Stanstead. There are several car-hire agencies based at the airport. Once you arrive you will find the roads and lanes of the area quiet, even at the busiest times taking you back to an era when driving really was a pleasure.

The grounds of four acres has its own wild flower meadow which last year included five different kinds of orchid, including the elusive Bee and Lizard varieties. Many wild birds such as Hen Harriers, Golden Oriels and Hoopoes, can be seen in the woods and fields around.

St Capraise d'Eymet is in the heart of the Bergerac and Duras wine country offering countless wine tasting opportunities and slightly further afield are the well known vineyards of St Emilion. Many of the local farms also still retain the right to distil eau de vie which is a feature of many of the local feast


There are so many delightful little towns and villages all within 30 mins drive. They all have market days on different days of the week, with night markets during the Summer. Bergerac is about 20 mins drive away, and is a large town on the river Dordogne. Here you can take a ride on a river launch, or hire a boat and row yourself.

The fantastic Sunday market at Issigeac is only 20 mins away

Tennis, golf, horse riding and fishing are all available in the area, and of course, the many restaurants that serve the most delightful food at even more delightful prices!

All towns have tourist offices, with leaflets in English.


We are surrounded by some of the very best vineyards France can offer.

Enjoy a visit to the wine museum in Bergerac, with it's “smell” experience, film presentation and wine tasting.

The famous sweet desert wine of Monbazillac is near by and the Chateaux is well worth a visit for both an education in French history and wine production and of course, a tasting.

Very close to Le Grand Bois, at Saint Julien d'Eymet is the renowned producer Roland Tatard at Clos Le Joncal, who opens his doors at 6pm each Thursday evening, for a talk about wine and it's production, a walk through his vines culminating in a tasting of his superb wines.
