Le Priola
2 bedroom house in walking distance of all amenities
Sleeps 4

Best location to explore and enjoy South West France
Very close to the Dordogne river, perfect base for exploring the area or house hunting, sleeps 4
Le Priola is a well appointed, comfortable cottage situated in Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, on the Gironde, Lot et Garonne and Dordogne borders. You are a mere 2 minute walk to the Dordogne River and not far from a purpose made beach at Porte-Sainte-Foy-et-Ponchapt (there is a life guard on duty most afternoons in July and August) and walking distance to a host of bars and restaurants in the medieval town of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande.

Ste-Foy-la-Grande was built beside the Dordogne and together with its twin across the river (Port-Sainte-Foy-et-Ponchapt) were once important as ports for the local wine trade. Recently one of the warehouses in Port-Sainte-Foy has been turned into a museum of the history of river transport on the Dordogne and is well worth a visit. Lively bars and restaurants under the arcades in the central 'place' are a favourite rendezvous for locals and tourists alike. Look out for the 'foires' and special events during the holiday season.
Don't miss the market on a Saturday morning - it's one of the best in the area.

Bergerac airport is less than 30 minutes away and Bordeaux airport about an hour. The local railway station is only a 15 minute walk away. This property is simply a perfect base for golfers - Les Vigiers Golf Course is a 15 minute drive or for wine tasters St Emilion is less than 30 minutes away. It's equally perfect for those who would simply like to explore the area.

The house benefits from double glazing and under floor heating and is available for rental all year. Arrival dates are flexible. Wi-Fi is included.
