What makes La Grange Pepe a great holiday rental
Here are some recent customer reviews for taken directly from the house book (not everyone responds to our feefo feedback email!):
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!
Definitely one to please the Francophiles - this is a classic French combination of vineyards, countryside, medieval villages, chateaux and markets.
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?
Wine, naturally! Plenty of opportunity for tasting and chateaux visits - St Emilion is close by. There is also a wide choice of activities available nearby including golf, water sports, 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.
Quality renovation providing a well-equipped and characterful 4 bedroom holiday cottage
Formerly the milking parlour of the original 19th century farm, the English owners have created a very charming and comfortable holiday home.
The property boasts original beams, high ceilings, traditional stone walls and a mix of classical furniture and modern equipment/appliances. It's an appealing combination!
The property in fact looks relatively modest on first view but once you step inside it really grabs your attention - both the size of the interior and the character of the property.
The staircase leads to a gallery landing overlooking the living room - it's quite a view!
At this level are two further bedrooms. These rooms are properly enclosed (they are not mezzanine bedrooms).
3x doubles, 1x twin
3 en-suites + 1 bathroom. 5x WCs in total
11.5 x 5m, unheated, protected by alarm, depth 1.0-1.8m
Numerous iPod docking stations plus exterior speakers
2 bikes available for guests
Two wood burners
No smoking. Pets considered
Walking distance from the village of Pessac-sur-Dordogne, the property is situated next to the original farm house (separately owned). These properties are accessed via separate driveways. Staying at La Grange you will feel amongst the vineyards and countryside of South West France. Adjacent corn fields and the outlines of chateaux in the distance, make you feel most relaxed!

A pretty village nestled by the Dordogne river - you can hire canoes and there are also mountain bikes available to hire. The historic stone quayside is a picturesque spot to have a morning coffee or dine out for lunch or dinner - the pop up restaurant here is recommended! The village offers a selection of basic shops and the supermarket is 10 minutes in the car. For some local wine-tasting try Chateau Carbonneau (3kms).
Bordeaux is less than 1 hour's drive (although we recommend catching a train from Castillon) and being on France's biggest cities, offers excellent restaurants, shopping, museums and stunning architecture. The city has been transformed into an elegant and exciting city.
Closer to home, Bergerac, Ste Foy la Grande and Castillon la Bataille are all very pleasant market towns with all attractions of French life: bustling markets, tree-lined boulevards with tempting cafe terraces and boutiques and wonderful restaurants too.
There are countless smaller towns and villages worth visiting too - Issegac, Pujols, Duras...find your favourite!
St Emilion is the real 'gem' of this area, of course. It can get busy but it's worth the effort to stroll its medieval streets.
The area is famous for its red wines but little known are the stunning dessert wines of Montbazillac - the aperitif of choice in these parts!View More Bordeaux Rentals
