About Pauline Vincent
We were looking for a stone house for ourselves but then fell in love with Les Granges which was much larger than we had anticipated. We spent 6 months in the UK and 6 months in France renovating Les Granges of which we are the very proud owners. We are on hand to point you in the right direction if needed and can recommend trips, restaurants and activities to ensure you make the most of your stay while keeping out of your way.
Pauline Vincent purchased this cottage in 1989
Why Pauline Vincent chose Ste Foy La Grande
We are tucked in a small corner of the Gironde that borders the Dordogne and are in the heart of rural France yet well placed for international airports and TGV. The people here are open and friendly, local wine and cuisine among the best in France. Ste Foy La Grande is a beautiful town, totally charming in looks and atmosphere, and with all the facilities and luxuries you could need whilst on holiday in the region. The ancient centre is filled with little boutiques, timeless cafes and fine restaurants where lunch lasts hours due to the astonishing array of gourmet dishes that arrive at your table, complete with the perfect wine to accompany each course. Those wishing to return home with some special recipes under their belt will be wonderfully happy staying in self catering Ste Foy La Grande accommodation, as recipes and tips are always easy to come by, and the finest of fresh ingredients are easily sought. The vast market that rolls into town every Saturday is the best in the department, and is filled with fantastically fresh local produce. The river banks provide a marvellous route for walking, cycling and horse riding from Les Granges, but the region is a maze of marked trails, so finding new routes is always a delight from Les Granges. There is also an excellent golf course just 15 minutes from Les Granges, at Chateau des Vigiers, which is a stunning 18 hole course in the Gironde countryside, set among the famous vineyards of the region. Wine tours and wine tasting events are excellent in the region, and are readily available; perfect for amateur wine lovers and connoisseurs alike.
What makes this cottage unique
It is difficult to say why we love this area but there is something relaxing and calming about the property. The old thick stone walls and high ceilings keep the rooms cool in summer. The restaurants and people are so welcoming and you feel really at home here. Effortless relaxation seems to come easy here.
