About Erica

As a busy resident of Surrey in England I have always been 'near' France and have loved the variety and way of life of rural France. I often draw inspiration from the local markets and and vineyards and like to forage for whatever is in season. My family enjoy this too between the various activities that keep us busy in France like tennis, golf, swimming, exploring and enjoying the sun and the ambiance. The property has been tended to ensure that we and our visitors can all have a wonderful experience here.

Erica purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Why Erica chose Entre Deux Mers

Chateau des Egrons is an elegant home that has lovingly restored and maintained for visitors to enjoy. It is comfortable, elegant and has a wonderful warm feeling about it that draws people back. My children and their friends call it ‘the happy house’ and we have many repeat visitors. A combination of the house itself, the food and wine, the peace and the variety of things to do.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The location is splendid. It is wonderful to be so close to great food and great wine; my friends tell me it is wonderful to have tennis, the pool and golf at our doorstep. Something for everyone!

Guestbook comments from the owner

visiting Chateau des Egrons was the result of a friends organisation. We arrived (two families) on a bright and warm summer morning with kids ranging from age18 to 6. We did not see much of them again save at meal times and for outings (kayaking on the river etc) and the occasional restaurant trip; mostly we cooked or BBQed at the Chateau. The pool and tennis court were well used and lots of wine consumed and good food, fresh from markets, cooked and appreciated. I have never before understood the concept of Marmande tomatoes and how they could taste so different and how chicken and duck had real flavour!

The house is beautiful and on the odd rainy day it was wonderful to find a corner away from the others and read until the group decided to start the next board game of table football championship!

We look forward to returning and reliving the magic of a wonderful and relaxing summer. It is true that the publicity write-ups do not reflect the magic of the place.

Fabulous and Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late (midnight) but the local manager was at hand to show us around and help us settle. The morning showed us the full glory of this fabulous place; the grounds, rooms and magical space was like waking up in a dream. Our two families and kids ranging from young adult to young teens all had our favourite things at hand; the pool and the tennis court were well used and the planning where we would sit for each meal (several indoor and outdoor alternatives) was a source of much fun. The area is great with shops, golf and markets on hand and getting to know the wine was also a much discussed pass time; we all had our favourites. Clare and Jane cooked us splendid meals during the two weeks and we also ate out on occasion and enjoyed BBQs and cooking for ourselves after visits to the markets. Although the area is rich with things to do and see (golf, the river, the towns etc) we did spend a lot of time being lazy at the chateau and using its facilities. The excellent weather also helped our tans.

The house is charming, spacious and beautifully decorated with all facilities at hand. We all look forward to future trips here.

Fabulous and Fun

  • 5 of 5

I visiting during a particularly nice September and so had the benefit of great weather. My cousin and family came from Australia and my sister and family came from the US. We had a real UN contingent with three generations represented. There could not be a better venue. The tennis and pool were very popular as was the SKY TV for certain sporting events.

We had some wonderful meals cooked by the local recommended cooks and by ourselves. The wine tour was excellent as was the local golf course and all the local markets.

The icing on the cake however was the wonderful home away from home that is this charming Chateau. Not pretentious but very comfortable and very elegant. Well done to the team who make this happen and to the charming local manager, Jane, she is a delightful lady who could not be more helpful.

I hope we manage to get the logistics organised for such a family reunion again.

The Time of Our Life; what a place. Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a property that has charm and magic. Wonderful things can happen here and we found great space and freedom amongst great beauty and peace. So private yet so exciting and why would you want to explore the region when you can stay in this wonderful place. There were 10 of us but it was most uncrowded.

We all loved this place.

The Chateau is set among the rolling vineyards of SW France and is ideal for exploring the local area, Bergerac or Ste Emillion. The local golf and river Dordogne plus the on site tennis and heated pool all add to the magic.
