About the property

Holiday Home in Monsegur, Aquitaine, France - Secluded Village Location. Short Walk To Shops Bars And Restaurants

La Grange is a traditional French wooden tobacco barn situated on the edge of the small village of Le Puy, The barn has been converted into 2 self contained cottages. These can either be rented together for larger groups of family or friends. Or individually as a 3 bedroom gite (sleeps 6) or the 2 bedroom gite (sleeps 4). The property is set in mature grounds with extensive lawns, shaded areas, barbecue and external dining area. Walled pool and sunbathing area. Also swings and jungle gym for the children. We have a selection of outdoor games. We also have our own boules court for summer evening championships. We are within walking distance of the historic bastide town of Monsegur, which has restaurants, bars, shops and market square. The Wednesday night market is a joy. Local food and wine producers sell meals, wine and even locally brewed beer. The market square is set up with trestle tables and the whole town comes together to eat and drink and dance to the live music. whether you would like to eat steak and chips or snails in garlic. Duck or oysters it is all available. Along with excellent locally produced wine. Nearby are several lakes with sandy beaches for swimming, sailing fishing and windsurfing. There are tennis courts in Monsegur, Eymet and La Reole. Also horse riding and several golf courses are within easy reach. The countryside around the area is magnificent for cyclists. The area is renowned throughout France for its Wine, traditional cuisine and good value meals. For a day out in an historic city, Bordeaux is an hour away and Bergerac 45 minutes. We hope that you will love this area of France as much as we do.

Our 2014 family holiday at La Grange was wonderful and Karen and her delightful family were as helpful and charming as could be. We were blessed with lovely weather and took advantage of the fantastic pool and gardens, as well as eating alfresco as much as possible. The night market at Monsegur was a fantastic experience.
