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

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.

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.

A CHARMING AND DELIGHTFUL GITE

  • 5 of 5
We spent a delightful week at Les Granges, the beginning of which was spent largely outdoors in the glorious sunshine, enjoying the pretty buildings, trees and plants, and watching hummingbirds and other wildlife. The scenery amongst the vineyards is beautiful, even when it rains, and the gite was a restful place to be. The town of Ste-Foy-la-Grande was only 10 minutes away by car, and restaurants and shops were within easy reach, yet we felt like we were “far from the madding crowd.”

Mike and Pauline were great hosts and very helpful with advice on all aspects of our visit. We’ll definitely recommend Les Granges to our friends and will visit again.

A THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a great holiday staying in Marguerite for 14 days. We loved the rural setting to this highly maintained property, and spent many hours by the excellent pool. We also made excursions in all directions to quaint historic towns, places of interest and dined at some great restaurants (one within walking distance of the property). Last but not least our hosts Pauline and Mike made us more than welcome with their great English charm. All in all very commendable.

Marguerite was a very charming and clean stone cottage. It was just what we were looking for as there were other children around for ours to play with especially in the pool - lasting friendships were made.

We would definitely recommend to other families with children as we all had a great time especially joining others for a drink or two and going out a couple of times with our newly made friends.

We wished we could have stayed longer than the 2 weeks we had. Hopefully will be back in 2010.

A charming well-maintained gite in a delightful little hamlet in rural France. Client comfort is of prime importance to the owners, who provided much useful information on the local area, including markets and restaurants to visit. An accurate listing description was provided. The property was of an excellent standard , with comfortable sofas, well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds.

The swimming pool was maintained to a high standard with plenty of sun loungers. Umbrellas provided adequate shade from the sun.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends - in fact some of our friends have already visited on our recommendation and have thoroughly enjoyed their stay.

We particularly enjoyed visiting the local weekly markets at Ste Foy La Grande and Duras. Also there is an interesting market at Issigeac on a Sunday morning. Issigeac is a delightful medieval town with plenty of photo opportunities. St Emilion, famous for wine, is also well-worth a visit but can be very busy in the middle of the holiday period. Further afield is the city of Bordeaux - an interesting journey by using the local train. Bordeaux is only one hours drive away if you use your own car.

A good restuarant can be found at St Sernin. Nellies at Loubes-Bernac is a particular favourite of ours for lunch where you can sample excellent home cooked French food.

We had an very good holiday and hope to return in the very near future.

Ste. Foy la Grande has a full range of banks, shops and supermarkets as well as a superb Saturday morning market. The square and surrounding streets are taken over by a fabulous market that draws crowds from miles around. Enjoy shopping for oysters, home-cured sausages, fresh fish, prepared meats and curios. Throughout the whole summer the town is home to evening concerts, night markets and events. Close by is kayaking, horse-riding, golf, tennis and go-karting. The town of Bergerac is just a few miles along the River Dordogne from a holiday rental at Les Granges. Bergerac is the largest town in the local area, and is a wonderfully picturesque place to spend a day, roaming the shop filled streets of the ancient centre, taking in one of the gourmet restaurants or hunting for the best wines produced in Aquitaine. The wine heritage of Bergerac is unsurpassed, with a great range of museums and cellars on show.

Visiting the local vineyards and tasting the wine is a must also. Various tours can be arranged to suit your needs.

Visit the famous chateau where Josphine Baker lived which is now a museum.

For a simply meal try the Restaurant Rapide in Ste. Foy. Finer dining nearby at Les Maillets where you can sit outside with views over the vines and enjoy the finest steak around or try one of their many other local dishes. Further afield try Le Camelia a family run restaurant with excellent cuisine all a short drive away.

A 'must do' is to go to the famous re-enactment of the Battle of Castillon (100 years war) where you can watch the famous battle, enjoy a drink or some food as part of the experience.

The Dordogne River, on which the town stands, is always a treat for holiday makers and locals alike. The blissfully clean and clear waters of the Dordogne offer a perfect retreat from the heat of the midday sun, whether you sit in the shade along the banks, fishing rod in hand (permits are very easy to obtain from any of the local tabacs), slowly strolling along the shaded banks, stopping at some of the little river beaches and having a swim, or simply paddling slowly along the river’s gently flowing course in a rental canoe.
