If you are looking to relax with the most luxurious of facilities, within easy reach of lovely villages, markets and vineyards, then this is the perfect location for you.

Surrounded by the local vineyards of award winning Domain Du Grand Mayne (https://www.domaine-du-grand-mayne.com/) From our back garden you can walk through the vineyards to their winery and they will welcome you with open arms, show you round the wine making facility and let you taste their wines. In the summer months they host a superb evening BBQ with music and wine tasking, these are memorable nights during the long hot summer evenings. The best part is you are only a short walk back to base ! Our guests have free tickets to all their events and a 10% discount from their shop. If you like in the UK you don’t even have to take the wine home with you as they also have an outlet in Hampshire where you can collect from.

If you fancy a meal out there is a very friendly local restaurant literally at the bottom of our road, about 2 mins walk which is ideal for families and we think serves great food. There is also a handy Boulangerie in the village for your daily croissants and baguettes.

Key points:

Freshwater pool with huge patio area
Short drive from the popular villages and towns
Peaceful location with breathtaking views over the vineyards.
Good mobile reception with 4G data
Sleeps 10. Ideally arranged for two families with 2 king size bedrooms and 3 twin bedrooms

A fabulous place to entertain family and friends, the kitchen farmhouse table comfortably seats ten people.

There is plenty of outdoor relaxing space and endless walks through the surrounding vineyards.

Our central location is close to the popular towns of Duras, Bergerac and Eymet, we think it is one of the prettiest places to stay in the area.

Our individual plot ensures total tranquillity and on a clear night you can dine under millions of stars.

After a trip to the local market in the morning, why not spend the afternoon getting stuck into a good book by the pool.

The property enjoys continuous sunshine all day, and by the evening the setting sun over the vineyards creates a magical backdrop to enjoy a bbq and bottle or two of the local wine.

Goodness and Kindness...the essential ingredients of a wonderful family holiday and life long memories.

We look forward to welcoming you.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr James Cartwright

Live in the UK.

Year property purchased 2017
Why this location? It's the peace and quiet which attracted us here and we think our surrounding area is the prettiest, away from the forests we are amid the rolling countryside of vineyards and sunflower fields. The area is bright and open and gives a feeling of space and relaxation, with lovely walks directly from the property.
This area of the south-west Dordogne is know as the Perigord Purple and is well as well known medieval towns such as Bergerac, on the Dordogne river and with a lovely historic centre, this is a region to discover many small bastide villages and towns (bastides are medieval 'new towns' founded in the 12th-13th centuries) several of which are found in the southern Dordogne (with others further south in Lot-et-Garonne such as Villereal and Monflanquin).
Several villages here are classed among the 'most beautiful villages in France' such as Belves, a very attractive village with a great deal of character; Monpazier, among our favourite five villages in the whole of France.
