La Grange Sud is part of the LUXURY DORDOGNE VILLAS group which consists of two villas. The 2nd villa is Acabanes 53641 - Home Away reference and is 6 miles from La Grange, a slow 10 minute drive away through single track lanes or a beautiful cycle ride on the complimentary bikes. If you have a larger group than La Grange can accommodate then you may be interested in booking Acabanes also. Your group will have the benefit of private accommodation but still be close to each other.
La Grange is unique as it is a wonderful holiday home for all ages and interests, however, can also be enjoyed as a place to enjoy a great round of golf whilst on holiday.
Our guests enjoy a 30% reduction of rounds at Vigiers and we have complimentary golf clubs/trolleys and bags.
La Grange is a large, luxurious refurbished French farmhouse, situated in a beautiful area of the Western Dordogne, overlooking the fairways of the prestige golf course of Château des Vigiers which also has a Michelin Star restaurant. It is 20 minutes from Bergerac and the airport.
This character farmhouse has very flexible accommodation and can equally be enjoyed by a couple or by a large group. If you are a small group then please do contact Tracey the owner for reduced out of season rates.
There are extensive facilities for all ages and interests. If there is something which will make your holiday perfect, then please let me know and I will endeavour to purchase it for your stay.

I live in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England with my husband Adi and golden retriever Holly. We both grew up in Wiltshire and raised our family here too. We have a daughter and son, who both live abroad. We enjoy living in England but also visiting them often. Adi works as self employed in the Finance sector and I look after Acabanes and La Grange; the bookings, the website and also I am chief painter and decorator and gardener! In the 16 years since we had our first letting season I have been on a steep learning curve on how to get building work completed on time and problem solving for guests when things unexpectedly go wrong! I really enjoy making sure our guests have the best holiday they could possibly have. If you have any requirements that will make your holiday special, please let me know.
Tracey Jones purchased this villa in 2009
After the success of our first holiday property www.acabanes.co.uk 10 minutes away, we decided to look for a second farmhouse locally. We decided to buy La Grange as the location was perfect, overlooking the golf course, www.vigier.com and on the edge of a hamlet. It is also a beautiful house with lots of character.
Beautiful location over looking Chateau Vigiers golf course, which also has a Michelin Star restaurant and is only a short walk away. Lots of wildlife in the area. Good area for cycling, dog walking and bird spotting on quiet lanes and through the vines. Only 20 mins from Bergerac airport.
Had a relaxing week at this new venture. Had an enjoyable round of golf at the Chateau Vigiers with Gareth (owners son) and the following day had a very good meal on the terrace at the golf course.
We had a great family holiday. Enjoyed the warm pool and the warm weather. I would highly recommend this holiday home. Thanks Tracey for a lovely holiday.
If you like to be away from the bustle of a city or even a town this is a good location. This property is comfortable, reasonably well appointed with a very nice heated pool, though the pool heater is annoyingly close to the beautiful terrace and outside dining area. Golf at Vigiers and biking are really worthwhile here. We and our many guests enjoyed our stay and Tracey was always helpful and responsive. We particularly appreciated her reference of Chris of Minibus47 for tours and taxiing to the airport. We chose France as a destination to be immersed in the french culture and language, so we where a bit surprised by the British experience for service staff and cable channels, great if you want to find Britain in Dordogne.
From the moment we approached the property, past a myriad vineyards, and parked up outside the lovely house, we knew we were going to absolutely love it. We've stayed in many rentals, both in Europe and in the USA - and this property was the best equipped and most comfortable by far. We felt completely at home throughout our stay and marvelled at the care and attention given to enhance our stay - from the shopping done for us, to the provision of plenty of English plug sockets via extension leads. We even found wine bottle stoppers in the drawer! The beds were deliciously comfortable - the bathrooms contemporary and the whole place was as clean as a whistle. We appreciated having British TV, especially with Euro 2016 to watch with English commentaries. The pool was an absolute delight to cool off in and relax. We enjoyed watching the golfers teeing off (not always very well!) and listening to the blackbirds chirping in the trees, and the frogs croaking in the distance. We talked to the little lizards (as you do). We had wonderful weather - a bit of a heat wave - only marred on the Friday after the Brexit vote dampened our spirits and dampened the ground with a thunder shower or two. Lastly, but not least, Tracey was an absolute joy to work with! Thank you for allowing us to stay at your idyll!
It is so rare to find a Luxury Villa like La Grange where you are allowed to take your pets, We have stayed here several times even before we had a dog to take on holiday .Perfect location, overlooking Chateau du Vigier golf course,with lovely walks, quiet roads for cycling ,villages and their markets to visit, vineyards for wine tasting, and restaurants, all in the vicinity.Thats if you can tear yourself away from La Grange ! The lovely heated pool and surrounding terraces and gardens makes one want to just relax ! Inside is equipped to a very high standard also.
Excellent séjour entre amis dans une très agréable, charmante et confortable maison, au calme dans la campagne périgourdine.
Quatre belles chambres avec 4 grandes salles de bain ( un vrai plus !), idéal pour un séjour en famille ou entre amis.
Piscine chauffée extérieure de bonne taille et très agréable. Tout est prévu pour se détendre et Tracey veille au moindre détails en hôtesse attentive et disponible.
Je recommande chaleureusement !!!!
