Great place for families


By Richard on 07-Sep-2020

We had a fantastic stay at La Borie Grande in Aug 2020, as two families with younger children. Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19, it's worth mentioning the excellent and proactive communication prior to our stay and I'm so pleased we decided to go on holiday. The property is in a beautiful location, the huge grounds immaculately maintained and property clean throughout. Being an old farmhouse, the owners have retained its charm and decor with some quirky pieces of furniture and ornaments, whilst equipping it with everything you'd expect in a top quality modern rental. We loved using the outdoor dining space with the BBQ and pizza oven allowing us to cook many of our meals outside, although the kitchen was sometimes a welcome retreat from the heat of the day! For us, the icing on the cake was the fantastic swimming pool area and gazebo, allowing the adults to cool off in the pool and then sit and chat (and maybe have a drink or two) whilst watching the children playing in the pool for hours on end. Not to mention watching the shooting stars from the balcony in front of the house, incredible! We couldn't recommend the property highly enough and there is also so much to do in the area. We had some great days out to Limeuil and Rocamadour to see the apes and the birds, kayaking on the Dordogne from Vezac to Vitrac and hiring bikes in Castelnaud (both recommended by the owners). A definite must is Le Chien Vert in Besse, which became our favourite eatery!

Perfect Holiday !


By Colin on 21-Aug-2020

Our third stay at this wonderful property! Our host Tracy was the best as usual, always a warm welcome and makes you feel at home. Her family have built something incredible here! Each time we visit there is something or somewhere new to explore. The well planted and colourful grounds around La borie grande are always well kept and provide a safe and beautiful place for our young to explore nature and see things that you just won’t see if you live in the city - friendly squirrels, busy bees, hungry horses and my favourite the humming bird hawk moths to name just a few! The facilities of the house itself were spotless and very well equipped for anything and everything. Although if the weather is good you may not spend much time inside other than to cool down, it’s just too nice outside! Just walk out the kitchen under the ivy covered walls and go find a comfy nook to sit and read a book, the crystal clear pool and shaded pavilion to escape the heat of the day, the pizza oven terrace to sit and share a meal with friends and family or the raised terrace with a view of the valley to sit and watch the sun go down. If you want to see something not many people see anymore then stay up a few hours after sunset and look south, the night sky and view of the milky way is incredible here in these almost untouched dark skies! This place has it all and it feels like a second home to us, it gets harder to leave each time. But we will be back next year! Until then, à la prochaine!

Wonderful Place


By David on 11-Aug-2020

When our daughter invited us to join them on her family holiday, we were delighted to discover she had picked out our most visited and favourite region in France
The weather did help of course, but we wanted to thank you for the obvious care and attention you’ve lavished on the property, set in such a beautiful landscape. Just about everything is first class. The quality so high and the range of items just guaranteed we would be okay. We wanted for nothing .
The memories are priceless.

Wonderful


By David on 17-Jul-2017

This was the second time we have stayed here. Everything was fantastic, from the house to the pool to Tracy (the owner), and the weather!! We had a great time. We have two children aged 9 and 7 and there is plenty of activities on site for them. Tracy is super friendly, and nothing is too much trouble for her. She even helped us with our dodgy BBQ-ing skills! The house is fully equipped with everything you could need and more, and the outside areas are superb The local village has two small supermarkets, two bakeries and a couple of cafes. It is beautiful and quaint. We enjoyed getting fresh bread every morning. I would recommend this place to anyone wishing to have a relaxing holiday.

Wonderful house, grounds, location and hosts


By Joanne on 17-Aug-2016

We enjoyed a wonderful week at La Borie Grande. We were an extended family group and the size of the house, different areas outside, and the gardens meant that we all felt we had plenty of space to enjoy together, or alone! The local town is lovely, and Tracy and family couldn't be more helpful hosts. A week just wasn't long enough!

An absolute gem!


By Ceara on 11-Aug-2016

We booked this property by the beautiful photographs and were amazed when we arrived just how stunning it is in real life! The house is just fantastic! The rooms are huge all with outstanding views over the countryside. The outside space was beyond our expectations, from the gardens to the outside pizza oven and bbq area to the gorgeous decking that we spent many a night sat watching the sunset while sampling the local vin! Having our own private swimming pool was fantastic and it was always spotlessly clean. Tracy and her family are so lovely and helpful, they went above and beyond to help us plan trips and were even there in an instant when we couldn't light the pizza oven. Please don't hesitate to book this wonderful property, you will not regret it!

Fabulous house


By Zoe on 15-Sep-2015

On arrival, we were kindly greeted by Tracy and a wonderful 'Welcome Pack'. The house is absolutely stunning. All the rooms are large and spacious as are the grounds which are kept so immaculate. Our first week was my husband and I and our 4 children, aged from 4-16 yrs old. There was so much on site to keep them all occupied with a fab park, badminton and boules courts, and the endless walks in the woods and chasing after the butterflies and squirrels in the garden - it was hard to drag them away to see the sites around. Coming back to the pool was such a delight! It is completely safe being fenced and gated and a hedge all around so you are totally private. My parents joined us for our 2nd week and loved chilling out in all the shady places for 'book reading' and spending the evenings chatting while cooking on the bbq and watching the amazing sunsets and we have never seen so many stars!!! We all agreed we have never enjoyed a holiday so much or felt as relaxed. Thank you so much x

Fantastic family holiday at La Borie Grande


By Andrea on 13-Jul-2015

We had a fantastic family holiday at La Borie Grande! Perfect for the toddlers as pool not at all accessible without adult present. Quite surroundings with fab local amenities and activities. Rural and away from it all, this was the perfect spot. Plenty to explore or just stay local and enjoy. Tracy and family were so welcoming and literature all very personal and insightful local knowledge which was super helpful. Night markets a must and very helpful local tourist office in Villefranche. Easy commute from Bergerac. Stunning local scenery. Villa is very well kept and lovingly restored, and owners mindfully unintrusive and easy going. Was lovely to have them close for questions if we had them. Highly recommend.

Truly wonderful !


By Fiona on 09-Jul-2015

From our initial enquiry through to our departure Tracy and her family helped to make our holiday such a memorable and relaxing 2 weeks. We arrived to a heatwave that lasted the 2 weeks but the house was a cool retreat and the pool was brilliant. There are many beautiful oak pergolas and shaded areas and the views and gardens are spectacular and beautifully maintained. It is a short walk into the town which is very picturesque. We would like to thank the whole family at La Borie Grande for sharing their home with us and being such wonderful hosts.
