About the property

La Grange

La Grange is situated in the beautiful Perigord Vert region of Dordogne.

It is an ideal property for families, with enclosed gardens and pool, ensures young children have the freedom of the garden, whilst adults have various areas where they can relax, read, write, enjoy an evening aperitif whilst watching the sun go down.

La Grange, in the Perigord Vert, offers a choice of three holiday cottages, La Maison du Jardin, (sleeps 4), La Taniere, (sleeps up to 6), and La Vielle Maison, (sleeps 6), overlooking a peaceful central courtyard, each with easy access to the swimming pool.

Set in 8 acres of mature grounds and with beautiful views over the Perigordian countryside, La Grange is the ideal location for a relaxing holiday.

The area offers a variety of attractions and facilities for those looking for activity or you can simply enjoy the wine and gastronomy for which the region is famous.

La Grange is situated between Verteilllac and Bertric Buree, famous for it's snail festival in May. They are both within walking distance!

Verteillac boasts 3 restaurants, two bars, butcher, baker, bank and yes Merlaud, (also sell the candles),which sells everything from vegetables to garden furniture!! Oh and a great outdoor swimming pool.

There are summer night food markets, which must be experienced! A must see and do!!

Going through the arch of the property, one enters the beautiful courtyard of La Grange, you will find La Taniere, on the right, which sleeps up to 6 people, La Vielle Maison and hidden away from the main building you will find the pretty two bedroomed gite, La Maison du Jardin.

It is an ideal place to be, as you can be active or spend your time relaxing, whilst children play. It is a wonderful chance to spend time in a very old building, La Grange, an old tobacco farm, dating back over 400 years. It is part of the Pilgrim's Way, with a symbol of a chalice and cross cut into the apex of the house, a sign of safety and welcome to the wandering pilgrims.

There is plenty to do, and visit, if you need days out. We are within a short drive of La Jamaye, lakes and woodland for swimming, walking and bird watching, Aubeterre a beautiful historic village, Riberac for it's colourful Friday market. Big towns Perigueux and Angouleme, are worth a visit. Cognac and Bergerac for wine and cognac tasting.

About La Grange

We both lived and worked in Berkshire, for many years, and had thought about moving to France for quite a while before actually doing it!

We searched around various regions of France before setting eyes on La Grange, which we fell in love with!

Dave is a musician and plays locally, he is very popular at the summer evening food markets.

I am involved with art and textile workshops, as well as event planning.

La Grange purchased this cottage in 2000

Why La Grange chose Bertric-Burée

As soon as we walked through the courtyard we felt this was the right place for us.

No matter where you stand the views are incredible, the quiet and the stillness!

There is also the night skies to behold, they are so clear with no light pollution, and so many shooting stars.

A great place to see the Perseids meteor showers in August!

Mary, aged 8, spent most of the night with me watching these showers, totally


What makes this cottage unique

The property is built around a pretty courtyard, with gardens flowing up and away from the main property, leading to the heated swimming pool.

The views from various spots are amazing, watching the sunset and if an early riser the sunrise, are both something to behold.

It is both idyllic and peaceful within a rural environment, so much open space..... quite wonderful!

A wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by the owners who were very helpful. The accommodation was lovely and comfortable. We had a great view across the countryside, from the outside seating area, lounge and bedroom. The pool was a good overall size we swam every day, and enjoyed relaxing and discovering the local villages, towns and cities. Thank you so much..
