Why Grant NEALE chose Cendrieux

Christelle and I fell in love with the "Dezie Manor" the first day we visited it, it was in desperate need of restoration but we really wanted to give this amazing property the restoration it deserved.

After years hard work, since 2004 the Dezie Manor has become a little paradise...

Luxury in a beautiful, rural location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the outside area and spent some happy hours dining there, swimming and relaxing in the sun, taking in the magnificent view. The kitchen was excellent, so well equipped and when the weather was inclement the lounge comfortable and warm. The dogs loved the garden which although not enclosed was large enough and quiet enough not to be a problem

Grant was very welcoming and responsive to our needs and easy to contact.

Although rural the gite was very convenient for all services in Vergt and a great centre for exploring towns, villages and for us following long walks with our dog.

All in all a great relaxing fortnight and would certainly want to return in the future.

2 wonderful holidays at Dezie Manor

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Orangerie in June 2017 and then returned to stay in the Grange in April 2018. The houses were both well-appointed and very comfortable. The surrounding countryside is nice and quiet, with a small town (with butcher / baker / super market) 5 minutes by car and the larger city / town of Bergerac and perigueux ~30 minutes drive away. We had wonderful holidays on both occasions. Grant could not have been more helpful: he was always contactable if we had any questions and was always happy to help. We have 2 small children who were 5 and 3 on our second visit and both houses gave them plenty to keep them amused: large grounds, some animals (horses / chickens / friendly dog), a private swimming pool and kids’ games. I would also recommend them for older kids as both houses had table tennis and table football available. For activities in the area to keep everyone entertained, we’d really recommend: Chateau de Castelnaud, the gardens of marqueyssac; Sarlat on market day, Bergerac and the Aquarium du Perigord Noir. All of these were great for both children and adults. We would love to return again!!

Fabulous relaxing break at The Grange!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Grange late in August 2017. We had chosen to take a late flight to Bordeaux. Grant kindly met us at the neighbouring village. We were very tired from the journey and it was very late in the day when we arrived, so it was much appreciated when Grant met us and then took us to the property.

The property and it's position is stunning.

We have rented many properties through Owners Direct overs the last 10 years.The Grange was definitely one of the very best - if not, the best.

All the facilities were great and thoroughly considered, to ensure that visitors were never left thinking "if only we had this or that". The Grange has it all.

There was a fabulous pool, living accommodation and outside space with daybeds that were a major favourite - as we spent most of the days just reading, playing and swimming. Other favourites were the table tennis and vintage, french table football - brilliant and great fun!

The whole place matched the photos - so you won't be disappointed.

But for us, it was the total tranquility that The Grange offered. We have never had this before at any of the beautiful rentals that we have taken previously. The view out over the pool, the cottage-like garden surrounding the pool and the seating area around the pool were second to none.

A great place to stay and just unwind.

Thanks Grant

peace and tranquility in the dordogne

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Grange summer 2017; for us a first time visit to France. We were looking for something quiet but also somewhere that had a lot of things going on reasonably close to where we were. A pool was a must and exclusivity in the sense of not having anyone else overlooking or bothering us top priority. We booked the Grange mainly because of the large pool. Grant has made an excellent impression with his website so the choice for us was pretty easy. Not only a pool but also modern comforts were important as was the location.

The Grange is quite a spectacular building and the location is extraordinary. If your looking for nightlife, bars and a wild time, move on, this location is not for you, but as the website clearly shows if your looking for a relaxed holiday with the modern amenities as well as peace and quiet this is the place.

The pool is heated and at the Grange a decent size to be able to swim in rather than just splash about. The Grange itself is equipped with a great kitchen and all the rooms adjoin each other in this rather impressive L shaped building.

We spent a great deal of time exploring the local area. Our youngest daughter is horse mad so having 2 ponies onsite in the surrounding fields to fuss about was fantastic for her. Grant & Kiki really helped us finding stables close by where she could go riding so this was a dream holiday for her in that respect! Our eldest was looking more to explore the markets. Typical French each local town had one so we could go daily! Food and drink is superb in the area with many excellent restaurants at good prices within 1/2 hour's drive. The wine growing areas of St Emillion & Bordeaux are an hours drive and local Bergerac wineries are about 20 mins. A car is a must to get around but you have everything you need in the local town of Vergt.

For us we enjoyed the peace and quiet in the evenings, enjoying a glass of wine by the poolside.

Next year unfortunately the Grange is booked so we will be staying at the Cottage instead. 2019 will see us back at the Grange.

Gorgeous luxury!

  • 5 of 5

We had our second stay in June and were a family of four (including two toddlers). We had a brilliant time at La Dezie, despite poor weather! Grant is the perfect host; there to greet us on arrival with a bottle of complimentary wine, and at the end of a phone if we needed him; otherwise totally discreet. The grange is stunning, furnished to a very high standard, hugely spacious and comfortable. The heated pool is fantastic and we loved the al fresco dining and lounging on the day beds in the roofed patio area.

There is a good supermarket a 10min drive away along with a bakery. The area generally is fairly quiet, so most activities are at least 20min drive away but nevertheless I could not recommend La Dezie enough to anyone looking for a high end luxury break with total privacy and a stunning setting, for a very fair price.

Amongst the best that you'll find in the Dorbodge

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Grange in August 2015 and yes, it’s as good, if not better than it looks. Within minutes of arriving Grant & Kiki made us feel extremely welcome and were on hand if we needed them throughout our stay. I unfortunately picked up a puncture to my car en route from the coast but within 5 minutes Grant had booked me an appointment at a local garage

The quality of the conversions are second to none and it’s clear how much time and care has been taken by Grant over the last 11 years. The kitchen and bathrooms are to the very highest standards but with quirky touches at every turn. The 1960’s vintage table football proves to be a real winner too.

Wonderful outdoor dining space around the heated pool makes it hard to drag yourself away and what isn’t apparent until you arrive is just how tranquil this location is. Perched on a hill with views across the sweeping countryside there’s no passing traffic to spoil the peace and quiet.

Unlike other areas of the Dordogne the property is located far enough from the tourist traps to give you space but everything you’d want to see is only a short drive away. Vergt, the nearest town is a delight with a great weekly market on Friday whilst local villages of Saint Alvere and Cendrieux, as well as Les Eyzies are all well worth a visit.

Having travelled extensively throughout France in the last 10 years this is by far the best all round property we’ve booked. I’m usually suspicious of really good websites but The Grange is actually better than anything you can view in a photo – style AND substance – highly recommended.
