Also, the beds are antique oak with elaborately carved head boards. Ensuite shower room (shower, sink, WC).

Anything to watch out for?

The boundary between La Grange and the friendly neighbour is defined for most of the property by a wall or hedge but there is a short stretch without. The two properties have separate driveways and do not overlook each other at all.

Location description from manager

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

Why the Bordeaux region?

Wine, naturally! Plenty of opportunity for tasting and chateaux visits - St Emilion is close by. There is also a wide choice of activities available nearby including golf, water sports, horse riding, cycling and walking. The region is also steeped in history and culture, we recommend strolling around one of the many historic villages, or a visit to the fascinating city of Bordeaux itself.

Day-trip Ideas

St. Emilion is a must - World Heritage Site

Tour the chateaux and vineyards of Entre-Deux-Mers

A day in deep Dordogne for the scenery and caves

City culture in Bordeaux

A day at the sea-side in Cap Ferret or Arcachon

The Local Area: Pessac-sur-Dordogne

A pleasant village nestled by the Dordogne river - you can hire canoes and there are also mountain bikes available to hire. The historic stone quayside is a picturesque spot to have a morning coffee or dine out for lunch or dinner - the tapas bar is recommended! The village offers a selection of basic shops and the supermarket is 10 minutes in the car. For some local wine-tasting try Chateau Carbonneau (3kms).

Bordeaux is less than 1 hour's drive (although we recommend catching a train from Castillon) and being on France's biggest cities, offers excellent restaurants, shopping, museums and stunning architecture. The city has been transformed into an elegant and exciting city.

Closer to home, Bergerac, Ste Foy la Grande and Castillon la Bataille are all very pleasant market towns with all attractions of French life: bustling markets, tree-lined boulevards with tempting cafe terraces and boutiques and wonderful restaurants too.

There are countless smaller towns and villages worth visiting too - Issegac, Pujols, Duras...find your favourite!<

St Emilion is the real gem of this area, of course. It can get busy but it's worth the effort to stroll its medieval streets.

The area is famous for its red wines but little known are the stunning dessert wines of Montbazillac - the aperitif of choice in these parts!

Pessac-sur-Dordogne

Walking distance from the village of Pessac-sur-Dordogne, the property is situated next to the original farm house (separately owned). These properties are accessed via separate driveways. Staying at La Grange you will feel amongst the vineyards and countryside of SW France. Adjacent corn fields and the odd chateaux in the distance, make you feel most relaxed!
