The Dordogne region

Fongrive is situated on a country lane just outside the the hamlet of Thenac in the south west Dordogne. The countryside around the house is noted for its rolling hills cultivated with vines and plum trees and dotted with Chateaux and Bastide Towns. The house has lovely, extensive views to the south, east and west.

The nearest large village is Sigoules with a bakery, supermarket, chemist, hairdressers, post office and doctors’ surgery. There is a wine festival in Sigoules that usually takes place in the second week of July.

The towns of Bergerac, Eymet, Duras and St Foy La Grande are all close by.


Markets: There are markets to go to virtually every day of the week.

Walks: There are three designated walks that start in Thenac and many more in the area.

Eating: There are several restaurants within easy distance of the house offering meals to suit every budget from basic local to gourmet eating. There is a guide to all our local establishments at the house.

Dordogne Boat trip: You can explore the Dordogne River in a traditional gabare boat from Bergerac.

Wine Route: Red, white and rose are all produced locally and the Route de Vin is an established route around the local vineyards where you are encouraged to sample the local produce.

Golf: An excellent 18-hole golf course at Chateau des Vigiers is a 10 minute drive away. There are 4 golf trolleys at the house.

Canoeing: There is no better way to experience the beauty and tranquillity of the Dordogne Valley and its tributaries than by hiring a canoe and paddling various distances, depending on how the mood takes you.

Other activities within 30 to 60 minutes drive are: Go-karting, ten pin bowling, pre-historic caves, bastide towns and general sight seeing with such towns as Arcachon (with its beaches), Bordeaux, St Emilion, Sarlat, Brantome etc., that are all waiting to be visited.

"Certainly has the wow factor, unbelievable views, beautiful villa, home from home."

We visited in July with family for 1 week at Fongrive Haut, near Thenac. On driving towards the villa for the first time, we were completely awestruck by the beautiful surroundings. On entering the property, again we were overwhelmed, it is a real home from home, each room beautifully laid out with the kitchen in the middle as the focal point and the rest of the rooms around it. The kitchen itself is very large, with every amenity you will need and a beautiful fireplace/stove. The bedrooms are set on either side with amazing views from each of them which you can wake up to each morning. My daughter loved the tower bedroom, we have several pictures taken from outside with her pretending to be Rapunzel. The pool is lovely, very big and with supplies of inflatables if you require. Downstairs we found the table tennis which we enjoyed so much we are going to buy our own, it really brought out our competitive side. The bicycles were great too, we cycled to the nearby hamlets, on roads surrounded by fields of sunflowers which were lovely. Plenty of recreational equipment in the house, along with books, games etc too many to mention. All in all a fantastic holiday which we can highly recommend, close to all surrounding towns and villages, car required, Sigoules nearby town is very friendly and has a good supermarket and lovely pizza restaurant which was excellent. Too many good things to mention, thank you so much Fred & Sue for letting us share your lovely villa. Alison Griffiths & Family
