All the gites have a comfortable rustic feel with all the mod cons that you would expect in a holiday home. Some of the original oak has been used in the tasteful decor to create a minimalistic style.

A little further and you'll find in St. Emilion, the Libournais appellations, or Cotes-de-Bourg. Less than 60 minutes and you'll be in the centre of Bordeaux.

We, John and Jane Jones became the proud owners of La Maison Grange in January 2010. We both agreed it was too early to retire(!) therefore a new challenge was needed. After much deliberation about what path to take, we decided to bring our standards and expertise to this beautiful part of France - hence the purchase of La Maison Grange. Lots of work has been carried out since we came including landscaping the grounds, upgrading the gites and summer house, replacing patios and refurbishing the pool area.
Jane Jones purchased this cottage in 2010
We fell in love with the house as soon as we saw it as it ticked all the boxes in what we were looking for. The previous owners had tastefully renovated an circa 1880 barn into a very beautiful main house & 3 attached but very private gites with a fabulous swimming pool.
The area is very rural - a new experience for us both having moved from a busy city environment. There is always plenty to see as we venture out every day with our dogs Molly & Buster. Although we live in a very rural spot, overlooking the beautiful Dronne Valley, we are not far from city life in Bordeaux, the wonderful vineyards of St Emilion or the enchanting town of Cognac.
There is very little hustle and bustle here - definitely life is lived at a much slower pace!

There's lots of space for children to enjoy whilst at the same time remaining safe. The swimming pool is situated close to all the gites. La Maison Grange is ideally situated for guests to enjoy a very relaxed, peaceful holiday whist at the same time being within striking distance of some of the regions finest places of interest. Thursday is BBQ night for our guests who wish to participate and these evenings have become something of a legend!
We had a fantastic week at this exceptional quality Gite in April 2015. The accommodation was perfect in every way as were the owners John and Jane, they were so friendly and helpful with sound advice and tips on places to visit etc.
We will certainly visit again and have no hesitation in recommending La Maison Grange as a superb holiday location.
