PETITE MASION DE LA GRANGE

St Pompont Barn Rental Photos and Description

Private and tranquil with lovely views across a wooded valley

These most delightful of gites are reached along a country lane,winding through cow pastures and flower meadows to where they nestles in the hills overlooking a wooded valley.

For many this blissfully quiet location will be an opportunity to do nothing but relax and recharge the batteries.For others it will be the perfect opportunity for walking,cycling or horse riding and enjoy the rich and varied wildlife - deer,red squirrels,kites,golden oriole,nightingales'nightjars,hoopoe,a miriad of butterflies and abundant wild flowers.

The pretty village of St.Pompon is 10mins. walk away and has all the basic shops,two bars and an excellant restaurant.It is worth taking time to sit in the square and do some serious people watching or saunter through the back lanes and soak up the ambiance. The village celebrates those long Saturday summer evenings with street parties - trestles and benches are set out,local food and wine sold at stalls,music played and dancing in the street - great fun.

Surrounding Area

The picturesqe village of Daglan is five minutes away.Here you will find the Petit Paris one of the finest gourmet restaurants in the area.Eat outside in the square - very French

The romantic cliff side villages of Beynac and La Roque Gageac are within a few minutes drive as is the bastide town of Domme with its wonderful views over the Dordogne.

The historic town of Sarlat with countless restaurants and colourful street markets is just a ride away and the Sunday street market et St,Cyprien takes some beating for atmosphere

A visit to this region would not be complete without time on a river.This might be paddling in the shallows, swimming to an island,picnicing on the banks,perhaps a boat trip from La Roque Gageac or better still floating down the river in a canoe. - its glorious Garden lovers are spoilt for choice,with the fantastic topiary gardens at du Manoir d'Eyrignac,at one end of the scale,to the lovely natural Jardins de l'Albrede at the other.The garden at Marqueyssac with its breathtaking views of the river and neighbouring chateaux is candlelit on Thursday evenings - Magical.

A beautiful gite in a good location

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautifully furnished and decorated gite in a very nice location. A car is necessary but it is an ideal out of the way location, not hard to get to and well located for many of the interesting sites in this area of the Dordogne region.

The owners are a delightful couple who are ready to help with recommendations and suggestions. Make sure you follow up on their suggestion of the excellent restaurant Le Petit Paris in the nearby village of Daglan. They also showed us the other gite on the property which was as beautiful and comfortable as the smaller one we rented. We also appreciated the English television channels not always available in similar locations.

I would recommend this property to anyone who is interested in a luxury getaway, a nice base for visiting the area. When we return to the area, we will try to stay here.

Erholsame Zeit

Bericht zu St. Pompon David Gudgeon
In unserem 2-wöchigen Urlaub in St. Pompon bei David Gudgeon (Linda lernten wir leider nicht kennen) wohnten wir in der ehemaligen Scheune und fühlten uns gleich willkommen, als wir von David mit Brot, Butter und der ersten „Ausstattung“ für das Frühstück empfangen wurden. Die Ferienwohnung gefiel uns ausnehmend gut, da sie groß ist und einen guten Grundriss hat. Alles war vorhanden, was für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt wichtig ist. Das Doppelbett war groß, die Matratze genau richtig – vor allem nicht zu weich! Die Wohnung ist neu eingerichtet und hat ein schönes, großes Badezimmer. Zum Einkaufen muss man etwa einen Kilometer nach St. Pompon fahren, zu gehen würde dann doch einige Zeit in Anspruch nehmen; auch mit dem Fahrrad ist die Strecke nicht für Jedermann geeignet, denn es ist auf der Rückfahrt von St. Pompon eine erhebliche Steigung zu bewältigen. Dafür wird man dann mit nichts als Ruhe entschädigt, wenn man wieder im Anwesen zurück ist. Der Kontakt mit David war überaus angenehm, völlig unaufdringlich, „gentlemanlike“ und gute Tipps hatte er auch immer parat. Sehr zu empfehlen! Wir möchten bald wieder wieder einen Urlaub dort verbringen.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Petite Maison was enchanting. Beautifully decorated & spotless it had everything we needed. The owner couldn’t have been more welcoming & helpful with info on local markets etc.

The peace & calm of the terrace and private garden was a joy with the pretty outlook & bird song. Ideal for our dog too, as we could walk her straight from the gite through fields to the stream or around surrounding country tracks.

We would thoroughly recommend it & hope to return to enjoy again a little piece of heaven.

The best gite we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5
This gite is delightful. The position in the countryside is quiet and you are only deafened by the bird song! We have stayed in a number of French Gites and this is by far the best we have stayed in.
The gite is really well equipped in all ways. The kitchen is modern and has everything we could have wanted. The bathroom was the best I have experienced in France (in both Hotels and Gites). The outside space is well considered; table and chairs, bbq, sunloungers and access to sun and shade (pity it was cold when we went in early April!).
The location is beautiful; quiet, private and surrounded by wildlife. The owner puts up bird feeders and the variety of birds visiting is wonderful. Only a few metres from the gite we saw Hoopoes, a real treat. The gite is short drive from many of the Dordogne’s tourist attractions – a bonus to us. This means the area is not busy, but everything you want is within a 5 - 30 minute drive. I am sure in summer this would be a real blessing to get away from the madness of the places closer to the river.
We will certainly be returning to this place and we recommend it to anyone you wants a truly relaxing break.

Perfect Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in the gite in July and it was better than we could have imagined from the web.David and Linda were the perfect hosts and Vasco (the dog) came to play every day. It is beautifully appointed,spotlessly clean and so peaceful to come home to after a day of sightseeing.It is perfectly situated for all the Dordogne has to offer. The two bedroomed gite on the property is also beautiful and would suit two couples travelling together as each bedroom and bathroom is totally separate.
A real winner!!

Perfect for a quiet holiday.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very pleasant week here in July, and it is probably the nicest gite we have ever rented. David met us in the village and guided us up to the property. There we found a beautiful location in a very quiet environment. The property was equipped exactly as described and included all the essential items we might need - eggs, bread, butter, milk, tea, coffee and so forth, Chickens lived in the garden and a very friendly German Shepherd came to check us out!.
During the week we visited castles, gardens, towns and villages without having to drive for more than 30 minutes - often less!
We ate in at night because the location was so nice and the kitchen had everything (and we could watch Eastenders). But there were several restaurants which seemed very nice within a 10 minute drive.
David lived in an adjacent property and was always available if we needed anything.
