Grote wat gedateerde vakantiewoning met geweldig zwembad en enorme buitenruimte!
De vakantiewoning is enorm groot, gedateerd en de lucht van 200 jaar vocht hangt wel in het huis.
Maar de ruimtes zijn enorm en alles is aanwezig. Ook een vaatwasser. :-)
De buitenruimte is enorm en prachtig. Het zwembad is echt geweldig!
Op het enorme grasveld kun je heerlijk zonnen, maar ook sportief actief zijn. Volleybalnet hangt, de tafeltennistafel staat elke dag buiten, maar ook een golfset staat klaar in de schuur.
Mark en Marguerit zijn supervriendelijk en attent, maar houden afstand. Dat doen ze geweldig want je privacy is geborgd.
Al met al zou het huis wel een upgrade kunnen gebruiken, maar is de locatie geweldig en mooi.
Het dorp is erg leuk. De restaurantjes zijn goed en gastvrij. De wekelijkse picknick op het plein is een niet te missen aanrader (vergeet borden en bestek en tafelkleedje niet).
In de omgeving opvallend weinig te doen, daarvoor moet je wel telkens wat kilometers maken.
Oradour sur Glane echt bezoeken. Zo indrukwekkend.
Many thanks Rien and family for your review, it is appreciated. There is always a balance to be had when refurbishing a very old property that is well over 200 years old. It has been refurbished extensively with new double glazed windows, doors, new electrics, wall linings, thermal insulation, decorations, new wheelchair access ramp and handrails, new white goods etc. We were keen to maintain some of the original period farmhouse features and charm and have kept the old working fireplace, deliberately exposed the window and door reveals to clearly show the old traditional stone wall constructions, aswell as maintaining other period features such as exposed beams and timbers. And for the sake of clarity, the property is not humid or damp, though this may just be a translation issue. We do hope you come and stay with us again.
A wonderful holiday
We have stayed in many places in France but none have been as nice as this. A beautiful property full of charm, wonderful gardens and a fantastic pool (the best pool ever). The grounds are well kept, secluded and with plenty of activities for all. We enjoyed many an evening playing table tennis, boules, having a BBQ or swimming. The village is adorable and a lovely walk with nice bars by the river. The Monday eve village music and food night must not be missed, it was one of the highlights of our stay. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and there is lots to do including racing at Pompadour, kayaking in the Dordogne, lake swimming at any of the many beach lakes, or simply enjoying one of the three restaurants in Segur. Mark and Maggie are great hosts and helped us whenever we needed. We would love to return.
What a fantastic review, thanks very much for that and we so enjoyed your stay with us at Le Grangeau also. When we see guests really enjoying themselves, it makes all our efforts that much more worthwhile. Yes, please do come and stay with us again.
A lovely stay
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Le Grangeau. Mark and Maggie are perfect hosts and gave us a lovely welcome. The girls loved the pool and playing with the dogs. The area is beautiful and we made the most of it on a couple of cloudy days. thanks again Mark and Maggie x
Thanks guys, it was lovely to have you all here, delighted you enjoyed your stay with us....we would love you to come and holiday at Le Grangeau again.
Beautiful setting,great facilities.
The house was perfect, close to lots of walks and Segur let Chateau. The pool was immaculate and formed the focus of our stay. Days out were easy and mark and Marguerite were very helpful pointing us in the right direction.
A great holiday😍
Hi Lynne, many thanks for the kind review. It does make our day to know that our guests had such an enjoyable time. We really enjoyed meeting you all and look forward to another visit.
The Perfect Spot
Situated off a quiet rural lane, yet near enough to stroll down in safety to the picturesque local village with its single shop and THREE restaurant/cafes - where one can dine at almost any time for a knockout price in the most attractive riverside setting - just has to tick all of our boxes!
The farmhouse is very creaky and wonky inside, but was very clean, and gardens were well looked after and so pleasant that we were happy to remain there, only driving out to Hautefort on one overcast morning and to St Yrieix for some shopping.
Hosts Mark & Maggie were tickled to see four OAPs cavorting around the table tennis table or rolling boules up and down the lawn, or perhaps hear the mirth from the table in the shade of the orchard . Mark & Maggie do seem to enjoy helping their guests to get the most from their holiday, while keeping a low profile.
Hoping to return,
Alan, Molly, Roy and Anne.
Many thanks for your review. We would gladly welcome you all again to stay at Le Grangeau. Yes the gite is over 250yrs old, not as "creaky and wonky" as it could have been, as it has been extensively modernised with new wall linings, windows, doors, electrics etc, but still very comfortable and still retaining it's original charm.
This was our third consecutive stay, we love the house and secluded garden and pool.
Another warm welcome from Mark and Maggie, we celebrated our friends birthday in style.
A real chance to relax with plenty of opportunities to explore Corezze aswell. Make sure you go down to the village on Monday evening in the summer for the local producers market. We had a lovely meal in the Galants bar one evening.
The house is spacious and comfortable, the children love the pool, garden and the pretty walk into the village: highly recommended.
Ben, Clare, Rowan and Martha
Many thanks for this. Yes, we were very pleased to welcome you all for the third time and we would love you to come and stay with us again and again and.......
