La Grange is a perfect holiday home. It is set high on a ridge by the edge of a tiny hamlet overlooking rolling countryside. The original oak-beamed barn complements the sunken garden as you step outside. There is a large open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area. A further large but 'hidden' extension contains the bedrooms & bathrooms over two floors. This division between communal and private space works perfectly. There are two double bedrooms (one on the mezzanine), two twin-bedrooms and two bathrooms (bath, shower, whb & wc) There is a laundry room with washing machine downstairs. Much thought and craftsmanship has gone into the house within its garden setting and wonderful views. From here you can venture out for long walks, horse riding, kayaking expeditions, tennis, golf, fishing, visit the market town of Riberac, or visit historic Brantome & Perigeaux nearby. Wine tasting in St Emilion, head to the caves of Les Eyzies, or hit the beaches near Bordeaux. However (be warned) it takes an effort to trade up the serenity you already have around you! Bed linen & towels included. House help is available on request (including babysitting.)
The nearest shops (butcher, baker, general store, hair salon, Hotel, cafes & restaurants) are in Verteillac, a charming small town 2km away. The larger town of Riberac (with Friday market) is a 20 minutes drive. Angouleme takes 45 minutes while Periguex and Bergerac are a short hours drive. Any direction takes you through sleepy villages, fields, along forests and rivers, always to a town that fascinates when you get there.
