LOCATION
The villa is located at the end of a 200 metre lane which means it is very peaceful and safe for children. It is situated in a beautiful, peaceful part of the Dordogne, close to Bergerac and surrounded by vineyards, plum orchards and woodlands, perfect for a relaxing holiday. The villa overlooks Chateau Vigiers Golf course with a Michelin Star restaurant and spa. Our guests receive a generous reduction of 30% on golf rounds.
It is easy to reach by either driving or flying. It is an easy 6 hour drive from St Malo or Caen and only 20 minutes from Bergerac airport or 90 minutes from Bordeaux airport.

HEATED POOL WITH RETRACTABLE COVER
Guests love the stunning heated pool with super views. The pool has the sun all day and is also a wonderful place to enjoy the sun sets. There are plenty of sunloungers under large sun shades. For poolside dining guests have the choice of a huge Kettler dining table with lots of chairs as well as a smaller Kettler table and chairs next to the glass balastrade.
The pool also benefits from a retractable cover which is very easy to use. It has the benefit of keeping the water as warm as possible meaning guests can swim in any weather conditions and at night.
Visiting families with younger children will enjoy the Wendy House, sand pit and Little Tikes play area which we will place here for their arrival. There are lovely views from the pool terrace over the Lower Garden and also across woodlands and the golf course. The pool is open and warm from Easter until mid November.

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.
Matthew, our young talented optional in house chef!! Matthew offers very affordable dining options - taster menus, bbq's, canapes, picnics, wine tasting. This means you can dine very well at the house and not worry about babysitters or taxis.

10 / 10 Harrington Family & Friends 12 August, 2019

We had a fantastic vacation at La Grange Sud with our family and friends. The Farmhouse and Barn are very well restored with all modern amenities in a traditional setting. All of the features and facilites were exactly as described on the website and the view over the golf course from the rear decks is spectacular.
The Rangemaster cooker and pots/pans/utensils were everything that we needed and we availed of the gas and charcoal barbecues. As is was hot while we were there we also appreciated the air conditioning in the bedrooms, as well as the excellent en-suite bathrooms with every bedroom.
We also had the opportunity to meet Tracey, who was so friendly and helpful both on-line and in person.
The Wifi worked very well, which was important as cell phone coverage is not good in the area, although not bad if you are trying to get away from it all!
All in all, this is a fantastic location, and we would not hesitate to return in the future and heartily recommend it to anyone visiting the area with a large family or group.

We had a birthday celebration and chose The Barn La Grange for our venue
Tracey was fantastic with the whole process of booking and information provided nothing was too much trouble
We were recommended to a restaurant called Famille Moutiers which was a 10 minutes drive away and was fantastic with service food and value for money would be hard to beat thanks for recommending it to us Tracey and for organising the taxi
Our holiday was brilliant we all had a wonderful time in this fabulous property
We had both the main house and the barn which are both luxurious and very comfortable
Everything was top quality and had everything you would need and more
The pool and jacuzzi were great and all the extras like cycles were a bonus
The outside equipment loungers dining furniture and BBQ,s were also of a high standard
I would not hesitate in recommending this place to anyone looking for a fantastic holiday in a beautiful surrounding and lovely part of France
