Description

Matisse is one of 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.

The double French doors lead directly to your own private patio area with seating for 6 plus a BBQ to cook up those tasty steaks, juicy chops, succulent prawns or simple sausages and burgers.

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.

Location description from owner

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.

Parcoul

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

“Family fun”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2014

The perfect setting for an extended family get together in a peaceful location with excellent facilities and lots do do for all ages. Safe Pool and comfortable clean accommodation with more than adequate household gadgets and gizmos. Jane and John provided some superb recommendations to eat out and visit, particularly the wine tasting and their hosting skills are unbeatable with superb BBQ and home cooked desserts and refreshments. We celebrated a few birthdays and we will remember them for along time to come.

“Ideal for a family”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2013

We had a holiday booked with our son, his wife and their son from Australia. The dates were odd but we were helpfully accommodated and spent a week in comfort and the sunshine (mainly). Plenty for small children to do and many local towns and places to relax. The gite was well equipped and comfortable and plenty of space for all of us. We found all we needed and any problems were quickly resolved. Can recommend.

“Great times in the Dordogne”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2012

Stayed here July this year, as soon as you arrive at La Maison Grange you are made so welcome by the owners John and Jayne. This was our second visit to this little gem in the Dordogne, there is lots to do in this area for all ages from site seeing, visiting the day / night markets, to more active adventures like canoeing and jet skiing. There's a great summer house with pool table, table tennis and table football and lots of books that you can borrow. The pool is fantastic, the kids love it and we enjoy relaxing and chilling round the pool, lovely and tranquil. It is a great family holiday, thoroughly enjoyable, ticks all the boxes not only for us but also our 2 children (aged 10 & 14). All in its a fab place to go I can see myself and the family returning again soon.
