Elegant Maison de Maitre on the edge of a peaceful village set in park-like groundsGrand proportions and beautiful period features.
'La Belle Vie' close to St Emilion




2 - 12岁

This elegant family home is perfectly situated in a quiet, charming village on the banks of the Dordogne river and is 45 minutes from Bordeaux and Bergerac and just 15 minutes from gorgeous St Emilion.


This stunning grand family home is currently in the process of being lovingly restored - preserving the character and beauty whilst creating a comfortable and contemporary haven in the French countryside.
On the ground level there is a large entrance hall, formal living room, formal dining room (seating up to 10 people), kitchen, toilet and laundry and downstairs bedroom (2 x single beds). Follow the grand stone staircase up to the next level and you will find two large master bedrooms (each with king beds), another large bedroom with french doors opening onto balcony (queen bed), a double bedroom with stunning garden and pool views (double bed), a twin single room (2 x single beds) and a second living area perfect for kids. On this level there are 2 x bathrooms, both with bath and shower - there is also a separate WC on this level.

Enjoy dining 'al fresco' on the large entertaining terrace or laze away the days beside the 12m heated pool on the luxurious oversized sun beds. The house is surrounded by 2 hectares of private gardens, a fruit orchard, well stocked vegetable garden and huge sun drenched wild flower meadow. We also keep 5 hens (Patsy, Rusty, Henny Penny, Shelby and Neal) who provide unbelievably delicious fresh eggs every day! Please feel free to help yourself to any of the produce from the property during your stay (we have a caretaker who will take care of chickens and tend to the vegetable garden so all you need to do is relax and enjoy!)

PLEASE NOTE: As previously mentioned, this house is in the process of being renovated, so some rooms have been fully updated while others are still a work in progress. The kitchen and bathrooms are still in an older 70's style, but are clean, comfortable and totally functional - they are also quite charming in their old-school style! We are very happy to answer any questions you might have, or provide additional photos of specific rooms if you would like to see them.
The property is only available for a few weeks during the summer months and only to those who are happy to treat our home with the love and respect that you would your own.


Guest have access to the entire house and surrounding gardens. The adjoining barns are not particularly usable, but guests are free to explore (carefully) and use for storage of bikes, etc.


We will contactable throughout your stay by telephone and email and have a caretaker nearby who will be able to help in case you need it during your stay.
We are more than happy to recommend things to do, places to visit and what to get where during your stay.

We had a great stay at Kate and Scott's home in May 2016, as two families with small children. The garden is wonderful, especially with kids, and the house is really stunning and full of character, with plenty of room so that as a bug group we weren't tripping over each other. The areas which have not yet been renovated are still spotlessly clean and in good working order with their own rustic charm. Kate and Scott were lovely hosts, extremely kind and helpful.

We had a wonderful stay at kate and scott's house. We were two families with small children, and the house and gorgeous garden gave us plenty of space that we weren't tripping over one another. The lovely pool and chickens especially were a big hit with all the family. The house itself is stunning and packed with character, the rooms which are yet to be renovated still perfectly clean and in perfect working order. Kate and Scott were kind and gracious hosts, who couldn't do enough to help

Kate's place is truly fantastic and she is a marvellous host. The house, gardens and surroundings are absolutely stunning and our stay was 100% hassle free. Receiving and returning the house was very clear and easy. Moreover, Kate was available for any questions we had during our stay. The house has absolutely everything we needed, inside, outside and in the vicinity, for a lovely, relaxing and entertaining one week stay with two other couples and 6 children. Highly recommended experience!

Très bon accueil Très belle maison dans une région magnifique

We were two couples and three small children staying at this lovely house. It had everything we needed, from comfortable sleeping to laundry and kitchen facilities. The pool was a favourite and the kids loved the chickens and trampoline. The owners were up front about the fact that the renovations were not complete, but to us that was part of the charm. The renovations that were done were lovely and the remaining areas were just fine. The location is great - very close to vineyards, a grocery store and St Emillion for a day trip out. We rarely left the house though and just enjoyed the beautiful surrounding. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating -- we had requested electric fans for the bedrooms and kiddie beds and they got them specially in for us. We would recommend this home for a big or small group, with or without kids. It was just perfect for us.

I'm New Zealander who has made Sydney, Australia my home for the past 20 years. I live with my husband and two young boys and we are fanatical, serial house renovators! We love transforming old 'ugly duckling' houses back into beautiful, liveable spaces. I am also a passionate foodie and avid traveller, two things I love to combine.
At the moment, we are indulging all of these passions - living in the Southwest of France and renovating a beautiful old 'Maison de Maitre' in a tiny village on the Dordogne River.
