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

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!

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!

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 !

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.
