A perfect venue for a family holiday in France

  • 5 of 5

La Grange is an ideal location for a big family get-together. We went there six years ago and enjoyed it so much we returned in 2017. The property is very comfortable and equipped to the highest standards. It has six comfortable bedrooms, all with en suite facilities, which can be accessed directly from the courtyard. The shaded outdoor eating area with adjacent barbeque is a big plus, and we enjoyed lots of al fresco lunches and dinners, with relaxed chat and games as the evenings drew in. We really appreciated the welcome hamper, the welcome drinks with Peter and Caro, and their pre-holiday shopping to provide supplies for our first night.

The property sits on a promontory above the Lot, so there are good views from the property, and even better views down the Lot valley by taking a short walk along the many field paths nearby. La Grange feels very peaceful set as it is in the quiet French countryside, but it is only a few minutes’ drive from a big Leclerc supermarket where you can get all the shopping you need.

We enjoyed just spending time in the extensive garden and around the immaculately maintained swimming pool, but there are also lots of local attractions to visit. We enjoyed canoeing on the Lot, visiting the market at Villefranche, and were lucky enough to be there at the right time to take in a spectacular “son et lumiere” performance at a local village. But the highlight was undoubtedly visiting the “Jardin de la Mothe”, an English cottage garden nearby, where the owners’ twin daughters provided a delicious and excellent value outdoor lunch. This was one of Peter and Caro’s top recommendations, and another highlight of the holiday was having these friendly and helpful owners living right next door, on hand to provide advice and ideas for activities.

All in all, we had a great holiday and we hope to return to La Grange again in the future.

A wonderful holiday home in an idyllic location!

  • 5 of 5

Peter and Caro could not have been more accommodating, ensuring we had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday. Their attention to detail is second to none and we appreciated help with shopping before our arrival. They made helpful entertainment recommendations and even managed our bookings! La Grange was spotless and tastefully decorated, the bedrooms spacious, comfortable and each with an en-suite. I would whole heartedly recommend La Grange, you will not be disappointed!

Excellent holiday in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at La Grange this August. As a party of 3 families (6 adults and 6 children), we were delighted that the accommodation was well equipped to meet our varied needs. As each bedroom had its own bathroom it was perfect for multiple families getting together, with ample space. Our host Peter and Caro were very welcoming, providing shopping on arrival and ensuring we had all we needed throughout our stay. The accommodation was comfortable, clean and thoughtfully organised to ensure we had all we needed. The local area had plenty of things to do but we were having such a wonderful time basking in the sunshine by the pool we rarely ventured out. The children also had lots of fun playing on the lawn, in the pool, table tennis and many of the games our hosts had left for us. We all spent many evenings on the beautiful terrace watching the sunset and would love to revisit.

Wonderful family holiday property

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything the description said it would be. All six rooms and ensuites were immaculate. The gardens ,terrace and pool were a delight. The owners' recommendations for trips and services nearby were all enjoyed by various members of our 13 strong party; as was their hospitality, the pre-arrival shopping and the lovely Welcome Pack.

Lovely accommodation within a beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

Six comfortable en suite bedrooms ably housed our party of fourteen, six children and eight adults (aged from four to seventy) and everyone enjoyed the swimming pool, lawn area and indoor games to the full. Peter and Caro are perfect hosts, there to assist with suggestions and bookings when needed but otherwise keeping a low profile. The inside and outside of the property is beautifully maintained and the garden, though not massive and on a slope, was the scene of cricket, rounders and other family games. As the weather was good most of the time, we were able to eat outside at the very nice barbecue area. On wet days it was a bit of a squash getting us all around the dining table and in the sitting room. The kitchen is rather small but otherwise very well equipped for large groups. When we booked we were a bit concerned about the bedrooms all being off the terrace, especially with young children, but it seemed to work ok. La Grange is in a great position for visiting the many lovely ancient towns and villages in the area and the beautiful countryside of the region. We have already recommended this property to friends.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (a party of 14) have just spent a wonderful week at La Grange.The house was well equipped and immaculate in every way, and every bedroom has its own en suite which is ideal when there are 6 adults and 6 children! The pool and gardens are wonderful for children, and we spent a lot of our time swimming and playing games. There is a table tennis table and boules to play, which we found great fun. Peter and Carolyn are the perfect hosts, suggesting many places they thought would be interesting to us, and then booking tickets for us. They were also on hand to answer any queries we had and so make the holiday easier for us. One of our favourite days of the whole holiday was our trip to the Jardins de la Mothe where we had a wonderful lunch and wandered through a truly spectacular garden. This too was arranged by Peter and Carolyn. So a wonderful holiday that came to an end too soon! Hopefully we can return before too long.
