Holiday Rental House
Manor house with private pool and tennis court set amongst the vines next to the picturesque market Bastide town of Sainte-Foy-La Grande, part way between St Emilion and Bergerac. Bergerac airport is a 30 minute drive (Bordeaux airport just over an hour). It is therefore perfectly positioned for wine tours or kayaking along the Dordogne. The house lies on the southern range of hills which run along the Dordogne river valley and enjoys commanding views. The house sits in mature grounds of approximately 6 acres which ensures privacy and tranquility. All 5 guest bedrooms are large (so no 'duff' room for the late arriver!) and one of them is a bunk room with 5 beds (plus 2 trundles) which allows flexible sleeping arrangements. All beds are made up with Egyptian cotton sheets and towels.

All beds are made up with Egyptian cotton sheets and towels. Three of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. It is therefore perfectly suited to family holidays with friends - 4 families can stay without feeling you are on top of each other. When the sun is shining there are a variety of garden games, including table tennis, croquet, boule and tennis (racquets provided), and table football. For cozy winter evenings, there are four wood burning stoves and a range of board games. The pool is fenced and a cot and high chair can be provided free of charge, on request. There are various terraces for pre-dinner drinks and al fresco dining and a gas BBQ and BBQing equipment are provided. There is Wifi throughout the house, including in all bedrooms. More

Interaction with guests
We will leave you to yourselves during your stay, but we have a property manager who lives only a few miles away and so can be promptly available to answer any questions. Our property manager will check you in and out, and provide local recommendations. The property is very much yours to enjoy in complete privacy, however we will need to maintain the gardens and clean the pool. The gardener will be there one day a week (usually Friday), but he will be utterly discreet and keep out of your way as much as possible.

About the neighbourhood
If you can drag yourself away from the house: the market at Sainte-Foy-La-Grande is well worth a visit (Saturday 8am - 1pm) giving a real feel and insight into local life and produce. There are other markets in and around the area throughout the week - details provided in the 'recommendations' section of the house manual. during the Summer months, there is also a night market at Sainte-Foy every Thursday when tourists and locals alike sit in the town square and sample produce from a variety of local vendors in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. the UNESCO World Heritage Site St Émilion is a 30 minute drive (or short train ride) away and makes a great day trip. Saint-Émilion is one of the principal red wine areas of Bordeaux.
Getting around
The nearest train station is at Sainte-Foy-La-Grande, 5 minutes drive away. Direct trains to Bergerac (20 minutes), Bordeaux (1 hour) and St Emilion (25 minutes). The largest supermarket is E. Leclerc Grand Pineuilh, under 5 minutes in a car. Super U, Intermarche and Lidl are also within 5 minutes from La Gravouse. There are plenty of local bakeries, but our favourite is 'Le Fournil de Talmeuneur', next to the Intermarche. There is a wine cooperative selling a wide variety of local wines under 1km from the house in Les Levres, always staffed by knowledgeable and helpful vintners who will point you in the right direction and allow you to taste before you buy!
