Bedrooms 3
Space 1,345 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Romantic, quiet, large swimming pool, views, ruins, all seasons

These stone houses and their several terraces are part of the Lagrenie domaine found in the hills overlooking Groléjac village, the Dordogne river and Perigordian hills. Situated at the end of a forest road, it is tranquility itself. However, the Medieval city of Sarlat and the famous villages Domme and La Roque-Gageac are 15 minutes away, Beynac Castle and Castelnaud: 25 minutes.

The Dutch owners live in Lagrenie's old farmhouse, with Les Cèpes (sleeps 6) and Les Girolles (sleeps 6) clustered around the views and the large shared (6 x 12 meters) pool. There is also a table tennis table and trampoline. Beautifully tended gardens provide ample space for children to exhaust themselves, while adults can relax in the complete privacy of the terraces.

About Karin ten Kate

We, Karin and Gijs are a Dutch couple in our fifties. We moved to France two years ago to fulfill our dream. Since then we are almost fully booked from April through September and we are very proud of the reviews we have received. Karin is an editor, but she also takes care of the houses and gardens, Gijs is a writer and board room consultant and facilitates business retreats.

Karin ten Kate purchased this house in 2010

Why Karin ten Kate chose Groléjac

We have dreamt all our lives of offering a quiet, inspiring place to people to relax, be happy and rebalanced from the pressures of society. We found Lagrenie in 2010 and we have turned it into something unique: the authenticity of a medieval domaine with all modern comfort you could wish. Lagrenie is surrounded by woods and has views over the river, but is very close to all famous castles, markets and villages of the Dordogne.

What makes this house unique

Original stone houses.

Quite location nearby any possible attraction.

Authentic, romantic place with large swimming pool (6X12), trampoline, table tennis, stunning views, ruins.

A Truly amazing and magical place in the Dordogne

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Karin, at Lagrenie, is truly one of the best experiences we have had, in our travels through France. The property is beautiful, as was the house we stayed in. It had everything you would need. It is large and comfortable and had such a warm, welcoming feel. Awaiting us, in the fridge was a bottle of really nice white wine, bottled water and also fresh eggs, from Karin's chickens. Karin is truly one of the kindest, most thoughtful people we have ever met and is a perfect host. She really wants to make sure you enjoy your stay, at her property and in the area. We were there for 6 days and did not want to leave! If you are going to be in this area, you should definitely consider reserving this property. It will make your visit to the area so much better! When we return, in the fall, we hope to stay here again. Many thanks and best wishes to Karin and her husband (we did not get to meet him, as he was away, but hope to meet him, when we return).

Utterly delightful

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days at New Year. From the two chairs on the porch to take off our boots, to the confortable living-room and wonderful fireplace, ample cosy bedrooms, perfect kitchen, the whole experience was delightful.

Many excursions, nearby shops, and wonderful hosts,

we loved coming back to Lagrenie every evening and having an owl for sole company!

A place out of time

  • 5 of 5

La Grenie has the most magical atmosphere: the forest is alive, the stones ponder and the superb landscaping makes even the most aimless stroll and adventure. The houses themselves are tasteful and uncluttered, with wonderful architectural quirks, but remain welcoming and cosy. Before you know it you breathing is slow and steady and your shoulders have gone back to where they should be. The local area is full of fabulous places to visit too. The owners are friendly but don't meddle. They provided an extra bit of kitchen kit when asked and really knew about the local area. All in all a perfect place to have a real family holiday or a romantic retreat.

Wir haben zwei wunderschöne Wochen im Haus Les Cepes verbracht. Die Unterbringung und auch die Umgebung sind perfekt, um sich richtig erholen zu können und den Alltag hinter sich zu lassen. Der grosszügige Pool lädt bei gutem Wetter zum schwimmen und verweilen ein. Und wenn das Wetter mal nicht mitspielt, gibt es in der Umgebung sehr viel zu erkunden.

Das Haus ist gut ausgerüstet und bietet wirklich viel Platz. Hervorzuheben gilt es, dass bei unserer Ankunft bereits die Betten bezogen waren und wir WC-Papier, Abfallsäcke, Gewürze, etc. vorfanden, was wir so nicht kennen. Die Vermieter sind sehr herzlich und diskret zugleich. Wir werden sicher wiederkommen! Vielen Dank für den wunderschönen Urlaub!

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Gite superbe et tout à fait conforme au descriptif, bien équipé. Dans un cadre splendide, digne de cette magnifique région de Dordogne. Accueil très sympathique. Avons passé une excellente semaine de repos et de gastronomie. Je confirme le dicton des propriétaires "Lagrenie, c'est le Paradis" !

Les Cèpes is a stone house with several terraces that is part of the domaine Lagrenie, close to Groléjac. It is quietly situated at the end of a wood road, but just 15 minutes from the Medieval city of Sarlat and the famous villages Domme and La Roque-Cageac, and only 25 minutes from the castles of Castelnaud and Beynac. Located on a hillside it provides fantastic views over the river the Dordogne and the Perigordian hills.
