About this property

Stone Farmhouse With Private Pool In Lovely Setting. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Set in the picturesque rolling countryside of the Sainte-Foy-la-Grande / Bordeaux wine region, Mauberts is a superbly restored stone house, its decor reflecting the owner's travels around the world. Conveniently located approximately 5 minutes by car from Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, on the Dordogne river, Mauberts is within easy distance of both the heart of the Dordogne valley, with its breathtaking views and its numerous tourist attractions and in the other direction, the beautiful city of Bordeaux.

The house itself is set in a peaceful location to the side of a quiet country lane. The front of the house looks onto the swimming pool with open fields and views across the vineyards to the woods beyond. In the immediate surrounding area are acres of vines, trees, rolling fields and sunflowers.

The house is large and airy, keeping cool in the heat of the summer with plenty of shade afforded in front of the house by a large tree.

The private pool is in front of the house with views across the vineyards.

The Owner Recommends

Local markets

The local markets are always worth a visit. The market at Sainte-Foy-la-Grande is one of the largest in the area and is on a Saturday. A little bit further afield Eymet's market is not to be missed and is on a Thursday, Duras and Miramont's markets are on a Monday and the market at Issigeac on a Sunday is always very busy so try to get there early. Evening markets in the summer months are great to visit.

Chateau visits

Head east of the property along the Dordogne valley and visit the impressive chateaux of Biron, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle.

Beautiful villages

East of the area is home to some of the most beautiful villages in France. Named as some of 'Les plus beaux villages de France', Belves, Beynac-et-Cazenac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, Domme, La Roque-Gageac, Monflanquin and Monpazier are all worth a visit.

Beautiful gardens

The Jardins de Marqueyssac are beautiful, and the view from the viewing platform across the Dordogne valley towards La Roque-Gageac is spectacular.
