Holiday Homes In France
Traditional Farmhouse Chambres d'Hôtes with pool
Fougueyrolles, near St Emilion, between Bordeaux and Bergerac
3 double bedrooms with bathrooms
Clos de Peyre
Our farmhouse is set in the middle of the Montravel vineyards, 35 kms from St Emilion. The village of Fougueyrolles is ten minutes from Clos de Peyre and has essential shops with a greater selection of shops and restaurants in Ste Foy-le-Grande. Market day there is on Saturday morning. Bergerac in the Dordogne is only 22 kms from here, in an area scattered with ancient towns and villages, hidden valleys, farms and vines.
The three double bedrooms are comfortable and pleasantly furnished with private bathrooms. Breakfast is served on the veranda, where there is also a television corner and a kitchenette where you can make a light lunch or snack. The swimming pool (10 x 5 metres), occasionally shared with us, is yours to use when you wish.
Sauvignon is on the ground floor and opens onto the garden. It has twin beds and a bathroom with shower and separate wc.
Merlot and Semillon are double rooms on the first floor, each with a bathroom with shower, separate wc and lovely views over the vineyards and countryside.
There are lots of walks through the vineyards around us and we have bicycles available. Fougueyrolles has a lake where you can jet-ski and enjoy other sporting activities. Within 15 kms are tennis courts, riding stables, rowing and canoeing on the Dordogne river and lots of places where you can fish and swim safely.
It's easy from here to spend a day in the Dordogne finding a market or visiting the châteaux and, another visiting the Bordeaux vineyards or Bordeaux itself. St Emilion not only produces fine wines but is a pretty village with houses built on a small ridge of land overlooking the river with narrow, cobbled and often steep streets. It also makes mouthwatering macaroons and a special chocolate mousse laced with rum.
There is an endless choice of reasonably priced restaurants if you are prepared to travel, with menus which match the local wines, such as lamb in the Médoc, snails in the Graves, foie gras in Sauterns and lamprey, baby eels caught in the Gironde, in St Emilion.
