About the location

Nestled within its own beautiful landscape, this charming 18th Century farmhouse, (some of the walls even date back to 1700), is located in a picturesque and quiet area of south west France.

Just 30 minutes from Bergerac airport, you’ll have a quick, easy journey followed by a very warm welcome into a relaxed, slow paced world. Your cosy home away from home on this painting and art holiday was originally owned by vine workers who resided in 3 stone cottages, and has now been beautifully converted into its present form; retaining the intimacy of a cottage whilst being airy and spacious.

This farmhouse also offers plenty of hiking and walking opportunities, including a 3 kilometre route that will take you into the heart of the countryside. Located just ten minutes from the medieval town of Sainte-Foy-La-Grande and its superb Saturday morning market, (voted ‘The favourite market of the French in 2014’), you will be pleasantly surprised by the town’s quaint relaxed pace while finding plenty to see, taste and do.

Sainte-Foy-La-Grande has a fabulous Saturday farmers' market, lots of bars & restaurants and its river is the perfect place to stroll, try a gourmet meal in a local restaurant, or have a coffee on the terrace under the old arcades. During the summer months, you’ll be called to the gourmet night markets with music every Thursday night, which your host would be happy to escort you to.

For those who would like to venture out on their free day, you’ll find plenty of choice within a 60km radius; you can visit Bergerac, Eymet, Monpazier, Beynac, or have an afternoon to taste the great wines of Saint-Emilion. Your host will be happy to point you in the right direction to make the most of your free time.

Your accommodation in this beautiful historic farmhouse will be in one of 3 charming, double rooms, each unique with high levels of comfort. Be sure to make yourself at home and explore the terraces outside, walk the land, and get ready for a superb night’s sleep in the country.

Get yourself away from the bustle and distractions that are blocking your creative flow, and come to your home away from home on this stunning French painting holiday; filled with wine, amazing food and new friends.
