This 13th century hamlet offers accommodation in 4 properties set in its own private grounds of 9 acres of lawn, mature trees, private 12 meter heated pool and 2 meter high Laural Hedge.

There are facilities for everybody to eat together Inside or

Outside under large canvas parasols,overlooking the gardens and pool or

inside in one of the manor with there oak beams and large stone fire-places.

All properties are fully modernized and fully fitted so each party group can be independent.

Originally built by English soldiers in the 13th century, this unique and distinctive property is the perfect place to relax or to celebrate in private and unspoilt setting..

To the rear of the property is a bridle way, which meanders through meadows and woods to the village of Lauzun.

About a Mile up the road is the pretty hill top village of Lalandusse, which still has a bar-restaurant.

There is a new supper market, 10 min away. And a variety of local vine-yards about 3 min away

Eating together, the banquet and the barbecue.: In the grand Manoir with its large open stone fire and large oak beams we have table and chairs for 30, people to eat together, outside on the terrace overlooking the garden and pool we table and chairs for 40.

Pool security and heating: We have found alarm systems unreliable so we have installed the latest and best security system available.

Turn the key and the pool is completely covered ,and securely closed by a electrically operated roll on cover made of PVC slat which can support 100kgs.

Turn the key again and the pool automatically opens.

The pool is always warm no matter what the weather. For 6 months of the year.

Heated by a top of the range heat exchange unit ( works like a fridge but in reverse) which is out of sight behind the pool house.

Love of labour and a labour of love.Its a really beautiful place.

Historic beautifuly set, surrounded by mature trees and fields of sunflowers;

When I was looking to buy a property,there was a trailer parked at the gate with my surname on;( Karmic or clever estate agent?)

15 mins from the airport. totally secluded and private;

Inbetween two famous bastide towns with shopes or restaurants;

Lots of places to visit or things to do,

Or as most people do soak up the beautiful surrounding , the sun and local wine around the pool;

LOVELY PLACE FOR A FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of 21 spending a week in the beginning of July 2011 at Grand Auque, and I believe we found the perfect place for us. Every single one of us were so pleased with the stay, there are activites available to match almost any interest. The houses were beautiful in their different ways. The days can be spent just exploring the grounds of Grand Auque and the rural, yet not isolated area surrounding it. Perfect small country roads for biking trips to the nearby towns and markets. And on a sunny day (which was every day) it is perfect to sit around the pool and just relax. If you feel restless you just get in the car and go off exploring all the sites to see; markets, caves, castles, churches, vinyards etc. The owner is at service to meet almost any request! I definitely want to go back to Grand Auque, but also to this area of France to explore more!

AUGUST 2011

  • 5 of 5
Grande Auque was a great location for our group summer holiday, 7 families, 32 people ranging in age from 3-49, it offered something for everyone.
The children loved the extensive and beautifully kept grounds, complete with games loft, treehouse, lake to row on, river to kayak and the lovely swimming pool. There were even bikes provided. The adults, when not busy challenging the kids to ping pong, badminton and rounders were happy to hang out at one of the outside tables sampling the local wine thoughtfully provided by the owner, Bob, and stored in a cool corner of the mill along with an honesty box.
The properties provide good quality accommodate with plenty of flexibility, we could settle the toddlers without worrying about noisy teens waking them.
The kitchens were really well equipped and easily able to cope with catering for all 32 of us. (Bob put us in touch with a fabulous local caterer, Maggie, who provided our first nights meal, enough food for several suppers for the children and even did a first shop for us which kept us going for 3 days, at a very reasonable cost I highly recommend her.)
Bob's friendly, helpful and relaxed attitude really make this a great place to stay, there is plenty of info in the properties regarding things to do in the local area and he's always on the end of the phone if you have a question.
The nearest local town, Eymet is lovely, plenty of good shops, nice restaurants and an excellent Market and night Market

All in all, a great holiday!

Have just had a superb two weeks here with entire family (and extras). It was easy to sort who slept where etc as there is plenty of flexibility in the four buildings. Fantastic grounds, for the kids there is a great tree-house, games-loft, loads of toys, bikes, ball games etc.The pool is great and has four steps into the shallow end which is ideal for little-uns. It is the same depth to about half-way, average 5yr old can stand with head above water up to there, then slopes gradually, so plenty of space for safe playing. Each house is really well-equipped for catering for large numbers. Had a row on the lake with boat that's provided!
There is so much to do around the area for all ages: day and night markets, plenty of lovely towns nearby etc Bergerac airport is an easy 20 min drive. There are many vineyards, had a tasting at Siorac which is 5 mins up road and Clos d'Yvigne. There's even a soft play for the toddlers on south side of Bergerac. Le Bugue is not that far away and there is bags to do there, caves, canoeing etc. Supermarket is 5-10 min easy drive to Eymet and is next to petrol station so it's all very easy. Played golf too at Tombleboeuf, a great 9 holer and very friendly place.
All in all a wonderful place and definitely a good choice for a large family group because it suits every age. Great place, great holiday.

WONDERFUL SPOT FOR A GATHERING OF 25

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful property was perfect for a group of families that wanted to get together in France - from Canada, Australia, Denmark, Holland Germany and the UK. Each building has been lovingly updated. The grounds are shaded with a marvellous collection of trees from around the world and make the houses so private. Almost every day there is a market in a nearby town featuring the fresh vegetables and specialities of the region. The kitchens are well equipped for anyone who loves to cook and is specially outfitted to handle preparing food for large groups. Within half an hour in every direction there are villages that are delightful to visit - and dont miss the chance to kayak the Dordogne! The main rooms are full of charm and the little touches that remind you that you are staying in buildings that were originally built over six hundred years ago. The pool is large and warm and we particularly loved swimming late at night under the stars. This is a great spot for a family reunion - charming and large enough so that you dont feel like you are living on top of each other - kids can be in one spot and adults in another. The owner and his wife were so helpful;nothing was too much trouble. We all remember our three weeks there as enchanted!
