About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Tracey Jones

Hello, my name is Tracey Jones and I live in Salisbury, Wiltshire, in England. I live with my husband Adi and elderly Golden Retriever Holly. We have a daughter who is married and lives in Cape Town and a son who lives in the Dordogne. After many enjoyable family holidays in the Dordogne, we decided to buy two holiday cottages, 10 minutes apart, and offer our guests a stress free, enjoyable experience. Holidays are really important and I do everything I can to ensure our guests are happy.

Year property purchased 2008
Why this location? This area of the Western Dordogne is very special as it really does have something for everyone. Both villas are surrounded by vineyards, sunflowers, woodlands and single track lanes which are perfect for cycling and walking. Family pets are very much welcomed and also really enjoy their holidays at Acabanes and La Grange.
It is a truly beautiful, relaxing part of the world where traffic jams and noise can be left behind.
Activities to enjoy locally - wine tasting, walking, cycling, go karting, canoeing, colourful markets daily, chateaux
A little further - Bordeaux, St Emilion, Bergerac
The wildlife is plentiful with owls, bats, deer, wild boar, birds of prey and many species of birds.
Although it is rural and peaceful it is not remote with many restaurants locally.
The location is easily accessible as Bergerac airport is only a 20 minute drive. Bordeaux is 90 mins and the ferry ports of Caen and St Malo 6 hours.
Unique benefits of property I offer a complimentary, holiday booking concierge service to ensure you holiday is stress free.

A delightful property and location. Superb customer service from Tracey the owner who has excellent local knowledge. Suitable for young and mature families. Exactly as advertised.

Owner response

Thank you Martin for your review and I am pleased you all enjoyed your holiday and that you may wish to return again soon. It was lovely to meet you all.

9.7 / 10 CathyW 21 August, 2017

Our family had a wonderful week at La grange, accommodation was superb and just like home from home.

The views over the golf course are stunning. My husband and son both played, however they would recommend booking earlier as they didn't get to play one of their preferred courses.

Swimming pool and all outside equipment is outstanding. Equipment provided for our grandson was fantastic.

The owner was extremely helpful at all times and ensured that we were welcomed and made very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble.

Lots to do in the area, we loved Domme although felt it was a bit far to travel for us. Eymet is lovely, there a lovely English tea shop there now which we would thoroughly recommend, cakes were delicious.

We would thoroughly recommend this property especially for families.

Will hopefully return in the future to this piece of heaven in France. A real gem.

Owner response

Thanks Cathy for your super review and I am so pleased you enjoyed another family holiday at La Grange and look forward to you all returning.

Lovely property in quiet rural location very close to good golf course with restaurant. Well equipped with aircon in bedrooms (much needed, very hot when we were there) and excellent pool. Several TVs with Sky on main TV in sitting room. Many bikes in very good condition.
Tracey Jones who owns the Villa was very attentive with emails and calls to ensure that all was ok
We would highly recommend La Grange Sud for both adults and children

10 / 10 Cassie Raiz 7 April, 2017

We cannot praise La Grange Sud enough. The place is fantastic; big with a beautiful heated pool and amazing scenery. The facilities provided for us were the deal breaker as we have a 9 month old baby. There was a pushchair, cot, steriliser, play mat and toys, all baby cups, plates etc! We wouldn't have considered a holiday abroad with a baby if those extras were not included. This really did make the holiday stress free. I would definitely recommend to friends and family and in fact we have just booked to go again in May.

Owner response

Thank you so much Cassie for your very kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed La Grange so much for your first family holiday with baby Leo and are excited about you holidaying at Acabanes in May!
