About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Le Grindoux is a three hundred-year-old farmhouse that has been completely renovated into a cozy, four-bedroom, two-bath family home. It is ideal for families with school-age children, or couples sharing a vacation.

Sitting on top of a hill on the department road just outside of town, it has expansive views over the surrounding countryside while being quite convenient for your morning croissant and newspaper run.

Have your morning coffee on the patio and watch the sun rise over the fields (which might be filled with sunflowers!)

Pick up lunch at a village farmer’s market: locally-made aperitifs and wines, foie gras, truffles, fraises des bois, tomates de Marmande, or charcuterie from one of the very good butchers in town.

You'll see why the French have a saying about the region: “on mange bien là bas,” ('one eats well there.')

Explore the sights of the Dordogne and the Lot-et-Garonne: chateaux of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Edward the Black Prince, Henry IV of France, and Josephine Baker and the prehistoric caves of Font De Gaume and Lascaux.


Enjoy the beautiful countryside: ride bikes on the country roads (if you’re lucky, the Tour de France will swing nearby), take walks on the randonnées (pilgrim paths) that criss-cross the area, visit family farms and sit down to a meal with the farmer’s family at a ferme auberge, swim at the Castillonnès pool, or play tennis at the town courts. There are also river boat rides, ornamental gardens, horseback riding, golf–lots of outdoor activities to keep you busy.

Return to the patio for your evening meal and watch the sun set over the village while you sip a locally-made Armagnac, or Rose.

You will sleep well at Le Grindoux: all of the bedrooms have American queen-sized beds.

One bedroom is quite large and also contains two twin beds, and downstairs off the salon is the smallest–perfect for one, but possible for a couple. There are skylights in the upstairs bedrooms.

There is a split bath (WC and shower room) on each floor (total of 2). It is ideal for families with school-age children, or couples sharing a vacation.

The pleasures of country life in southwest France await you!
