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 2010
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.
