Situated on a stunning private 100 acre wine estate, La Petite Grand Pierre offers peace and tranquillity in the gastronomic heart of France. Play tennis, snooze by the pool, stroll through the vineyards or just enjoy the sensational hilltop views.
This beautifully renovated cottage offers southwest facing accommodation with wonderful views over the surrounding woodland and countryside. The property retains its traditional features but is also furnished with all the home comforts, from feather pillows to a woodburning stove. The cottage is in a private setting and guests have exclusive use of the large swimming pool and all weather tennis court. Pick fruit from the adjacent orchard and sample our Estate produced wine which the owners will ensure is available upon arrival. Wander through the estate or just relax on your own terrace and watch the sun slip beyond the horizon.
Glorious countryside, spectacular chateaux, Medieval fortified villages and the nearby Dordogne and Garonne rivers are just waiting to be explored. There are wonderful local markets to browse through all year round, and excellent night markets during the summer months, where local produce can be sampled. Children will be in heaven at Grand Pierre. There are cherries, apricots, peaches, pears and grapes to pick, bikes to ride, chickens to chase, trees to climb, vines to picnic under and Shetland ponies to ride. And the Atlantic coast, with its beaches and surf, is just 1 hour 45 minutes away.
Chateau Grand Pierre is easily accessible from Bergerac and Bordeaux airports, both of which are serviced by the main and low cost UK airlines (eg. BA, Ryan Air, Flybe, Easy Jet etc). Car hire is available from all main providers and is located at both airports. The Channel ports give those wishing to travel by car a number of options. By train one can travel directly to Bordeaux with a minimum of fuss.
