There are three gites ( 2 x 3-bedroom & 1 x 2-bedroom) on the complex which forms La Maison Grange.
All the gites have a comfortable rustic feel with all the mod cons that you would expect in a holiday home. Some of the original oak has been used in the tasteful decor to create a minimalistic style.
All the gites provide spacious living and dining areas complete with comfortable sofas and dining for 16. There is a wireless bluetooth speaker system to enable you to listen to your favourite music, flat screen TV and free view satellite plus DVD player. DVD's are available on request at no extra charge.
The light and airy kitchens are fully equipped (with matching china & glass!) to allow you to get creative in the kitchen, from traditional French cuisine to sandwiches and salads. We have installed a dishwasher, washing machine, full size gas cooker, a fridge-freezer (to keep the white wine& beers cool) a microwave and a modern Tassimo coffee maker for fresh coffee in the morning (english tea supplied too!)
The double French doors lead directly to patio areas with seating & BBQs to cook up those tasty steaks, juicy chops, succulent prawns or simple sausages and burgers for everyone!
The 14m x 6m salt water swimming pool is just down the path and there are sun loungers & umbrellas placed around the pool for your use. The pool is cleaned every day, there is a security gate fitted and the fencing meets French legislation.
La Maison Grange is equidistant between Bordeaux and Cognac making this the perfect gite choice to leisurely explore the world famous Cognac and wine regions that are right on the doorstep. Whether you are with a group of friends or with the family there is something for all ages to enjoy. Heading 30 minutes south is the famous wine region of Pomerol. A little further and you'll find in St. Emilion, the Libournais appellations, or Cotes-de-Bourg. Less than 60 minutes and you'll be in the centre of Bordeaux. This beautiful city contains all the high street names along with the more exclusive designers but is also full of interesting architecture and history.

The Dordogne region
The Dordogne is extremely Child-Friendly with lots to do for all ages and interests - it's not all castles, chateaux and history! If you want to keep them happy and occupied there's a broad range of 'day-trip' things to do, some even suitable for the occasional wet day.There are a host of activities for all the family from indoor and outdoor water parks with jet skis and quad bikes to messing about on the rivers in kayaks, fishing or riverboat trips. Horse and moutain bike riding are also available closeby.
A little further afield there are some of the best examples of prehistoric caves in Europe.The Dordogne region has literally hundreds of caves, many of them open for the public to visit. These caves (grottes in French) fall into two categories – caves that are famous for the prehistoric paintings they contain and caves that are more renowned for their rock formations – stalactites, stalagmites and other curious shapes formed by the effects of water over thousands of years.
The beautiful city of Bordeaux contains all the high street names along with the more exclusive designers but is also full of interesting architecture and history. The old quays on the waterfront (a world heritage site) are now home to a large range of "outlet" designer shops & well worth a visit.
Canoes, Kayaks & Mountain Bike Hire are a 5 minute drive away. Meandering along the Dronne river in a canoe or kayak is a delightful way to see the wildlife & very popular. Aubettere sur Dronne - 20 minutes drive
is home to the Association of Nautical & Open Air Sports graduates and executives who are at your disposal at this well organised and welcoming site for canoe & kayak hire. There is accompanied or unaccompanied hire and distances of 5,10,15 or up to 50kms available.
There is an assortment of Water Parks & Lakes closeby. Le Paradou Centre - 5 minutes walk - is a chalet holiday complex also catering for campers and is just a short walk from La Maison Grange. It offers a variety of family activities including crazy golf , trampolining, tennis and volleyball. The fresh water lake has a sandy beach with pedalos and toboggans with a water slide open from late July until the end of August. There is a seperate lake for fishing. The complex has a bar and restaurant, has weekly music nights and is open to non residents.
Brossac Lakes - 25 minutes drive - these fresh water lakes offer a variety of water activities including jet skiing. There is a safe, man made beach and swimming. Facilities include a restaurant that overlooks the lakes. Another great day only 25 minutes from La Maison Grange.
Beau Vallon Montguyon - 30 minutes drive - this beautiful lagoon is found deep in the countryside outside Montguyon. It is an extremely child-friendly complex with large sandy beaches, adventure playground, nature walks around the lagoon and in the pine forests, snack bar & BBQ restaurant. Pedalos and small boats are available for hire. Highly recommended for a great family day out.
Le Pizou (20 minute drive) Night Markets are an unusual experience and a great opportunity to wander around the stalls, then select something tasty to eat from an array of regional dishes on offer, maybe duck, or steak, chips or crepes. Tables are set up for your use and there is always entertainment that goes on into the night. A great time can be guarenteed. Bring your own plates & cutlery & settle down at a table for the rest of the evening like the locals. Taste of real French life. - Highly recommended! Every Tuesday evening during July & August
Aubeterre sur Dronne & Bonnes sur Dronne are home to tournaments involving games & races on the River Dronne in both villages. Great fun to watch. During July & August
Angouleme -approximately 50kms - Vintage Car Rally around the old city ramparts. Great fun to watch - not just for enthusiasts. Annual event usually 3rd week in September

"Wonderful,obliging hosts at this beautiful, relaxing, fully equiped venue."
My wife & I stayed at La Maison Grange with our three sons and their families to celebrate my wifes birthday We occupied the three gites which were all clean,well furnished and contained every facility. So we had sole use of the amenities,which were very good including table tennis, pool table and swimming pool. John & Jayne were excellent hosts catering for all our needs without question.They recommended wine tasting venues, restaurants etc The barbeque evenings were one of the highlights, so enjoyed by all of us, that we requested extra ones. They were also good value and varied (duck, steak,chicken etc) The location was quiet and relaxing, perhaps a little far away from any major towns but there were villages fairly close by. Also there were beaches on the rivers nearby. I have very good memories of this holiday and hope to return soon.

"Stunning Property, Great Hosts, Excellent Facilities"
We booked the whole of this property (all three gites) with friends and most certainly weren't disappointed. The gites are perfectly equipped and are very spacious (especially the three bedroomed properties). The pool area is superb and very child friendly / safe with a click lock gate, fence and pool alarm. The owners were very kind and welcoming and afforded us great hospitality ensuring that we had everything we needed and more. Nothing was too much trouble. The location is great too as we were looking for a quiet, rural location with good access to this great grape growing region. Lots for children to do..forest lakes, river beaches, kayaking, tree top zip wire parks (kind of go ape for kids). Plus some exquisite restaurants to be found - we received great recommendations from the owners. A stunning holiday and I'm certain we'll go back and visit this property again.

"Stunning gites in rural France"
We were looking for a private location in rural France for our family holiday with our parents and friends. We booked La Maison Grange because it had 3 separate gites allowing us all to have our own privacy but keeping us together at the same time. Pool was ideal and child friendly as we had four young children. Owners were very helpful and friendly and helped with plenty of recommendations of activities and places to eat. The gites were fully equipped and well furnished to a high standard. This is an ideal location to explore the dordogne and wine producing regions with plenty of activities for children such as kayaking, tree top zip wires and inland lagoons to name but a few.
