We have stayed here twice, once on our own and once with friends and are returning next year for a third visit. The position of the house above the valley is superb and we never tire of the views from the balcony. The property is on several levels with steps in between so ideal for families with slightly older children but not suitable for those looking for level access. The main bedrooms have air conditioning, which in a hot summer is essential for a good nights sleep. The swimming pool and sitting area around is excellent for relaxing, but be aware that there are no steps into the pool, so it is a jump in and pull yourself out. The house is well equipped, with a spacious lounge/kitchen on the main floor and a games room for children on the floor below. The top floor can be rented separately for your party and is ideal if you have more than one family staying at the property. The house and garden are well looked after, although the garden, being on a slope, is more useful for watching the butterflies and birds and is not suitable for ball games etc. The house is close to Beaulieu Sur Dordogne, with a supermarket within a mile at the foot of the hillside. There are plenty of interesting villages nearby; kayaking on the Dordogne, and good restaurants close at hand (car/taxi). Martel is about half an hour away and has a steam railway and good market and restaurants. This is a quieter part of the Dordogne than the more famous areas further west, but well worth discovering.

Fantastic location with great pool for all the family. Local shops, bars and a great choice of restaurants just 5 mins drive into Beaulieu. The apartment is an added bonus when two families are sharing. Returning next year with family. Booking process was easy and Caroline replied promptly to all our questions. Many thanks for a fantastic holiday.

We had a wonderful week at Gramond Haut. The house is in a beautiful, high location overlooking the Dordogne valley just south of Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.
The house is very well equipped, clean and comfortably accommodated all 6 of us, our teenage son particularly enjoyed having the apartment to himself!
We ate every meal outside, enjoying the lovely views from the veranda.
The large built-in BBQ was used every night and easily coped with the 6 of us.
All the bedrooms have air-conditioning, great for a quick blast to cool the room down.
The heated salt-water pool is fantastic and was used for hours every day, a great place to escape from the heat of the sun in the afternoons & evenings.
The beautiful town of Beaulieu is only a 10 minute drive and there is a well-stocked small supermarket at Altillac, 5 minutes drive. A larger supermarket is located in Biars, 15 minutes away.
The house is positioned well for exploring this area of the Dordogne.
We all loved staying at Gramond Haut and have already booked to go again next year!
