Located in the heart of a truly scenic bastide town that is blessed with all amenities, Les Terraces is an old riverside warehouse that has been divided into two apartments plus a stunning new master suite that may be rented in conjunction with the Ground Floor for additional space.

Location description from owner

The Aquitaine region

Aquitiane is home to the largest forest in Europe, one of the few rivers with a tidal bore, millions of acres under vines, more chateaux and historic buildings than you couold possibly hope to see in a couple of years.

The climate is generally very good year-round. The local lore states that summer starts at the beginning of March and doesn't come to an end before the beginning of November. Even in the depths of winter the weather is normally fair, with cold days, but sunny clear skies which is much preferable to cold, damp and rainy weather that can be found further north.

There is an abundance of cultural, sporting, leisure and shopping opportunities within a few minutes walk from the house. If you choose to bring your bicycles then there are many places to explore - the countryside is relatively flat here. If you have a car then there is so much to do that we couldn't possibly list it all here!

Clearly, there are more activities available in the summer months, but we urge you to consider an out-of-season break if you want to see what the area is really all about without the crowds of July & August.

Sainte Foy-la-Grande

Sainte-Foy-La-Grande sits at the intersection of the Gironde, the Dordogne and the Lot & Garonne departments. A mere 25 minute drive from the historic towns of St. Emilion and Bergerac, and home to one of the "100 best markets in France" there is no doubt that there are plenty of cultural activities easily accessed from the town.

Sporting enthusiasts will find plenty to interest them, and Les Terraces is pleased to be offer special rates for golfers at the highly prestigious "Chateau des Vigiers", a 10 minute drive from the house.

There are some excellent restaurants in easy walking distance from the house, (both fine dining and simply good food/atmosphere) and a few fun bars that are great for people watching.

“Relaxing, soothing, lovely view, building oozes character..”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2011

We stayed at Les Terraces for a week in August this year (2011). The apartment surpassed what the pictures on the website show you. The building is 800 years old, beautifully restored and oozes character and charm. There's lots of space - we were 2 adults and 2 lively boys and we all really enjoyed the experience. The riverside terrace is special - we ate breakfast there, had coffee there and a nightly glass of wine. The river flows right past the door and we had our own steps with direct access to the quay through a private locked gate. The area around is quiet so we slept really well. There are some nice laid back restaurants nearby, Alex suggested some lovely ones, and the kitchen is really well equipped for cooking. We were delighted with the hi tech spec - who would have thought it of such an old building? Wifi access, large plasma tv with two cable boxes attached, dvd player; surround sound, even an iPod cable for mp3 playing! We were concerned that the kids might be bored, being inland. No chance! There's a beach (yes!) on the opposite bank of the river which is super for a swim or tiddler fishing and Alex helped organize canoeing for us on the Dordogne one morning which was really something special. We had never done it before but it was easy and safe and great family fun. On other days we drove to see castles (with catapults, swords and armor), vineyards and historic towns in the surrounding countryside. The whole apartment is open plan, including both bedrooms, which are curtained off (downstairs) and up an open stairs for the other, rather than walled off. While this initially seems odd, it is nicely done in sympathy with the structure and layout of the lovely old building that it is. All in all, a lovely rental - well deserving of an excellent rating. We do hope to be back in the future.
