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. 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). 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.
You will have full access to the house and grounds, including the swimming pool and newly laid tennis court (summer 2018).
Interaction with guests
You will usually be met at the house by our Property Manager, Victoria, who will hand over the keys and talk you through the house.
