Dordogne Gite La Grange offers quality accommodation in a very peaceful end of road location just 2km from the beautiful Dordogne village of Saint-Pompont, and offers comfortable and spacious facilities for 2 people.
With floral terraces outside, and a small enclosed private garden it is easy to spend your time relaxing at La Grange, or there is the spectacular Dordogne valley within a few miles to explore, with the superb views from Domme just 20 minutes away by car, or the elegant streets of Sarlat around 30 minutes away by car among many other delightful towns and villages for which the area is noted. To the south and east are the chestnut covered hills of the Bouriane and Périgord Noir, spectacular in Autumn, which soon lead down to the impressive River Lot around Cahors. The nearest village, Saint Pompont just 2km away has all that is needed for everyday living.
The property has recently revealed a very interesting history. It was built in the early 1700s on the site of a former Protestant church for Sieur (Lord) Maniers, the Procurer (tax collector) for the long lived King Louis XIV. Recent discoveries include an underground escape tunnel from the house up to a nearby farm, such was the unpopularity of tax collectors.
Approaching the property from nearby Saint Pompont, the quiet winding lane comes to an end by the property and there is ample secure off road parking available.
Entering La Grange, Guests are on the covered terrace which, with the trailing plants and flowers, makes a great shade from strong sun.
Inside the door is the spacious open plan Living area, incorporating a good sized Kitchen area. The Living area has a dining table and chairs for 4, and the Sitting area has a sofa and armchair, together with television which is English Satellite and also Netflix.
The stylish fitted kitchen has plenty of storage and work space, with Cooker with hob and oven, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and a good selection of utensils.
The spacious bedroom has a King Size sleigh bed, and the equally spacious deluxe bathroom has a bath with shower over, wc, bidet, basin and heated towel rail.
The covered terrace runs around the south and west faces of the building, and there is a low trellis to ground level, making it secure for pets. A small open area beyond has a gate through to a small enclosed grassed garden, again secure for pets, and very private for guests. There is a picnic table there. Sun loungers and patio furniture are also provided.
Dordogne La Grange has two sister gites close by, but carefully laid out so that a good degree of privacy is assured. This makes it ideal perhaps for two or three couples travelling together who may not want to share the same accommodation.

Dordogne Gite Mireille offers Guests the finest location for exploring the Dordogne and Lot valleys, with one of the finest viewing points of the Dordogne river at Domme, about 15km away. The town of Sarlat (picture below) has a very historic and picturesque centre with tiny streets and bars and restaurants at every turn.
The Dordogne valley has many towns, villages and chateaux of note to explore among beautiful countryside which changes steadily throughout the year. The wild flowers in spring and the autumn colours of the predominant chestnut and oak trees make wonderful spectacles away from the main summer season.
This is great country to explore by car, by motor bike, bicycle or on foot, with details of numerous marked routes of all lengths available for Guests.
Other attractions include caves such as le Gouffre de Padirac, Pech Merle and the world famous Lascaux Caves. There are also the beautiful historic cliff villages of Rocamadour and St Cirq La Popie.
To the east along the Dordogne is the character town of Bergerac, surrounded by thousands of acres of vines offering the chance for sampling Bergerac wines, or for a deeper flavoured red wine the wineries of the Cahors AOP are only a few miles to the south along the River Lot around Prayssac.
Traditional markets are held somewhere nearby every day of the week, with the Friday market at Prayssac renowned for quality food. All towns and most villages have good restaurants where the most is made of the local produce: Guests are never short of good food in this part of France.

"Just spent a fabulous week away from it all in la Grange. Wonderful rural location with no light pollution or traffic noise."
"If it is peace and quiet you want, look no further. Well placed for exploring the eastern end of the Dordogne. David, the owner was extremely helpful but very unobtrusive"
