Description from owner

Situated just 3kms from the river Dordogne, Bellevue a former Wine Domaine is bordered by vines and provides spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and valley.

Ideal for families La Grange, our cottage/gite has its own garden with furnished patio area and BBQ for relaxed living, and overlooks the 12 x 6m swimming. The pool is alarmed and the area around it is fenced and gated to minimise the risks to small children making it a relaxing and fun place to spend the day.

From breakfast in the morning sun to dinner overlooking the pool, the patio is a wonderful alfresco dining area and just as good during the day for a coffee or a glass of the very local wine.

The original Domaine house (sleeps 7) may also be rented during the summer months. This together with La Grange will accommodate a total of 15 people - please see Holiday Lettings advert no. 85273

The Dordogne region

Historically the department of the Dordogne was created in 1790 taking its name from the main river winding through the region. Before that time this same area was known as Perigord and is still known thus today. The Perigord is divided into four regions, and our area is called the Perigord Pourpre or PurplePerigord, taking its name from this wine-growing region. Wine tasting opportunities are plentiful and difficult to resist! St Emilion just 35kms is always worth a visit not only for it's wine but also for it's medieval buildings.

The pace of life here takes its rhythm from the River Dordogne as it gently winds its way to Bordeaux.; a fast and vibrant city one hour's drive to the west, with its 18c architecture and excellent city shopping. Here, however, the countryside is picturesque, the traffic is minimal, and there are chateaux to visit, caves to explore and medieval walled towns and villages to visit.

Spring arrives early here with mild sunny days in March and April gently easing into May and June's very warm long hours of sunshine and light evenings that seem to stretch on for ever. Then Summer arrives in a blast of heat with rising temperatures allowing outdoor acivities their full potential. Summer markets are everywhere and even the smallest of villages has an annual free firework display. The region holds an annual Felibree festival on the first weekend in July which draws 25,000 visitors each year for a journey into the Dordogne's romantic past and the Occitan language (langue d'Oc). It takes place in a different town every year and for 2013 Bergerac has been chosen. Over the days 5th, 6th and 7th July the town will be decorated with thousands of flowers hung from wires over the streets in the old historic centre of town. A truly colourful and spectacular event.

Throughout this time visitors can discover traditional trades from the region where the langue d'Oc is spoken, such as basket-making and clog-making. Everywhere there are colourful traditional costumes and dancing in the streets which are decorated with thousands of flower garlands. It is an event not to be missed.

Le Fleix

Bergerac has quaint old streets to explore, enticing small restaurants and bars to discover, and museums..You can also take a boat trip on one of the traditional gabares, a flat bottomed craft used originally for trading up and down the Dordogne

Visit nearby Chateau Monbazillac built in 1550 to discover its history and at the end of the visit enjoy a relaxing wine tasting. Monbazillac is golden, smooth with a heady aroma and is best enjoyed chilled as an aperitif or perhaps with a rather 'wicked' dessert.

French markets are renowned for their fresh produce and Ste Foy la Grande has one of the top 100 in France.

The produce is fresh, local and has endless possibilities for a picnic, BBQ, something cold and delicious or maybe a traditional meal. Accompanied by the local wines, this means preparing sumptuous and memorable meals is an effortless pleasure.

Local activities in the area are numerous. Try your hand at canoeing, quad biking, jet skiing, paintball, tennis, horse riding the list is endless.

At the Lac de Gurson just 15kms away through wooded countryside you can spend all day lakeside 'on the beach'. There is a giant water slide numerous small restaurants and bars, horse riding and an activity path around the lake.

Castillon la Bataille is just half an hour's drive to the west. From mid-July to mid-August 800 medieval re-enactors bring to life the last major battle of the Hundred Years War in a captivating two-hour spectacle, filled with stunts, special effects and explosive expertise.

“Look no further, you will NOT be disapointed!”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2012

We have stayed at Bellvue (The Grange) every September for the last seven years and will be returning again in 2012. The accomodation is ideal with BBQ area, large swimming pool and lovely views over the surrounding countryside. Convenient for exploring the entire Dordogne region and beyond. The English owners are guaranteed to make you feel at home. Mike & Myra Smith, Wrexham, N Wales.

“Unbeatable”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2012

Firstly a belated apology for it taking me over 6 months to write this review! We wrote in the guest book "A fantastic week of relaxation in a superb setting. Alan and Felicity are wonderful hosts! The gite was all we expected and more, the website reviews described it perfectly. Bergerac, Arcachon, St. Emilion and Monbazillac are good places to visit, but on a hot day St Emilion has too many steep bits on foot! Pool is fantastic, view awesome. Thank you for a most enjoyable holiday" Its impossible to think of anything negative to say about the whole holiday. The gite is well furnished, clean, tidy and welcoming. Alan and Felicity show exactly the right level of customer service. Not intrusive, but on hand to help if required. I would urge any prospective visitor to book a holiday here before someone else does!

“Sunshine, relaxation & wonderful views”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2012

We loved the position, quiet and rural. The swimming pool was lovely with wonderful views towards the Dordogne; sunbeds, cushions and sunshades were provided. The gite was fully equipped and very clean, with a good barbecue area and seating outside. We spent a week relaxing with some swimming and table tennis - an ideal place in which to relax.
