About this property

Adults Only, 2 Pools, Glorious Gardens. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

With its distinctive, pitched Perigordine roof, Grace's Gate is our second largest self catering holiday cottage.

Its beamed living room is furnished with twin settees and complemented by Louis-Philippe style dining furniture.

From the living room is an attractive bright, ash wood kitchen complete with Villeroy Boch china, washing machine and dishwasher.

A king size, dark wood colony bed, and sumptuous honey coloured silk fabrics, creates a sophisticated bedroom with built-in wardrobes providing plenty of storage space. A fresh white bathroom and shower, with heated towel rail, completes the en-suite accommodation.

Perhaps Grace's Gates most striking external feature is its 7-metre long private veranda. Accessed from both the kitchen and living room, it leads onto a south-facing patio and intimate ‘courtyard’ garden area giving extensive views across the stunning countryside and the field pool.

Graces Gate has private adjacent woodland grove parking, accessed from Domaine De Leygues circular driveway.

Domaine de Leygue is a real sanctuary; an opportunity to totally de-stress and unwind. Lisanne and Den are exemplary hosts, always willing and able to go the extra mile to ensure total holiday bliss. We have been visiting Grace's Gate for seven years, summer 2019 already booked! The accommodation is always spotless, well-equipped and so comfortable; the two pools are a delight; perfectly maintained at all times. With countless opportunities to explore the local bastides, vineyards and restaurants, what more could one ask? We will never tire of returning - an opportunity to recharge the batteries in the most idyllic, tranquil of settings.
