We are Jan and Ningsih. After having worked and lived in the far flung corners of the world for the past 30 years, we are now preparing for retirement and realising our dream to settle in France.
We believe that we have found something truly special in Grandcoing and look forward to growing old here.

We love the this part of the Dordogne because of its beautiful countryside. The Perigord-Limousin natural park with forests, fields, rivers and many lakes and ponds create a wonderful setting. Whilst having easy access to all the wonderful attractions of the Dordogne, it is away from the tourist crowd. Limoges airport, which has daily low-cost flight from/to UK, is only 45 minutes away. Because of its rural setting it is recommended to have a car; it is about seven hours by road from Calais.
The property is set at edge of the hamlet on a 3.5 acre garden, with lovely uninterrupted views of the green rolling landscape and valley.
Two villages nearby offer basic amenities: baker, butcher, mini market, pharmacy, bar and restaurants. The property has a fenced 10x5 m pool. We provide pool towels and umbrellas so you can travel light and make the most of the pool. For those who enjoy a more active holiday there are ample opportunities for walking and hiking, cycling, horse riding, tennis, fishing or canoeing in the area.
Brantome, known as the Venice of the Dordogne, is only 30 km away and slightly further afield is the beautiful medieval-renaissance city of Perigueux.
Great property, tranquil location in the heart of beautiful French countryside. Away from the 'hurley burley' of life and commercialism. Wonderful local produce to enjoy. Friendly locals in picturesque villages with a range of sightseeing destinations/activities relatively close by - or you could just sit by the pool.
