Here are some recent customer reviews taken directly from the house book:

Two fantastic weeks again in your lovely home.

A fantastic 10 days in a gorgeous house – undoubtedly the loveliest accommodation we’ve ever stayed in in France! Restaurant recommendations in folder very much appreciated – the Belvedere (recently reopened as a tapas place) is a delight and Le 8 in Sainte Foy was such a treat.

Thank you so much – we loved staying at your beautiful barn. It was amazing – would love to return.

Thank you for having us in your beautiful home, we had a lovely stay and enjoyed ourselves so much.

Truly lovely time had by all.  A little bit of August magic - great place, food, wine and experience.  Thank you so much!

Suitability for:
Definitely one to please the Francophiles - this is a classic French combination of vineyards, countryside, medieval villages, chateaux and markets.

  • Toddlers: good - play areas outside.
  • Teenagers: OK - quiet area but wifi in the villa
  • Reduced mobility: OK - a few steps and a gravel courtyard.

Anything to watch out for?

The boundary between La Grange and the friendly neighbour is defined for most of the property by a wall or hedge but there is a short stretch without. The two properties have separate driveways and do not overlook each other at all.

Why the Bordeaux region?
Food and wine, naturally! Plenty of opportunity for tasting and chateaux visits - St Emilion is close by. There's also a wide choice of activities available nearby including river canoeing, horse riding, cycling and walking. The region is also steeped in history and culture, we recommend strolling around one of the many historic villages, or a visit to the fascinating city of Bordeaux itself.

Accommodation

Character villa in an idyllic, peaceful location yet walking distance to the village & River Dordogne

Formerly the milking parlour of the original 19th century farm, the English owners have created a charming and vey relaxing holiday villa.

Pepe boasts original beams, high ceilings, traditional stone walls and a mix of classical furniture and modern equipment/appliances. It's a winning combination!

The property in fact looks relatively modest on first view but once you step inside it truly opens up to reveal a spacious, informal and convivial holiday home. 


Ground Floor:

  • Open-plan living room integrating kitchen, dining and lounge spaces. The main living area and kitchen are separated by an attractive wooden divide and a few steps leading up to the lounge. 
  • Kitchen: wood burner; round kitchen table; island unit and work surface in cream and light wood to match the units; large, enamel sink; range cooker; countryside views. The room is modern but in keeping with the traditional style of the property.
  • Living area: featuring large flat screen TV (with some English channels); DVD player; two large seating areas with four large sofas in total; an attractive, solid wooden dining table which comfortably seats 8; coffee table; attractive brickwork fireplace with wood burner. 
  • Master bedroom - character room with: 4-poster double bed; patio doors to the garden; tiled floor with rugs; bedside tables & large antique wardrobe; iPod docking station
  • Bathroom with free-standing bath tub, separate walk-in shower, hand-basin & WC. Although not en-suite to the master bedroom it is situated next door and is effectively a private bathroom for the master bedroom.
  • Twin bedroom - once the feeding area for the cows! The area where the hay bales were kept is now an inset shelf and rustic wardrobe. The beamed ceiling, stone walls and antiques add to the character. Also, the beds are antique oak with elaborately carved head boards. Ensuite shower room (shower, hand-basin, WC).
  • Guest WC with hand-basin. 

Upper level:

  • The staircase leads to a gallery landing overlooking the living room.
  • Bedroom 3: double bed, sofa, parquet floor, small coffee table plus antique chest of drawers. en-suite shower room with shower unit, WC, hand-basin. Note this attic bedroom features sloping ceiling for approx. 50% of the room. However, as it is a large room with king size bed, it is still popular with adults.

It's an easy level walk of 15 minutes to the village centre where there is a restaurant, tabac/epicerie and canoe hire. The villa is situated next to the original farm house (separately owned). The two properties are accessed via separate driveways. At Pepe you will be in relaxing surroundings amongst the vineyards, cornfields and gentle countryside of south west France. There's plenty of potential for days out too including Bergerac, Saint Emilion, Bordeaux and heading deeper into classic Dordogne territory.
