Light floods through the tall French doors that open onto a balcony overlooking the main square of this medieval trading town right on the Dordogne River, not far from St Emilion in the beautiful Bordeaux wine country of Aquitaine. Ste-Foy is a sophisticated French provincial town with nearby historical sites and great restaurants, cafes and bars. The Saturday market, right outside the apartment building, is famous, and rated in the top 100 markets in France.
This stylish 2-bedroom apartment has 2 queen-sized bedrooms, modern kitchen and bathroom, separate toilet, washing machine and dryer, hair dryer, TV, DVD, CD, ipod speakers, and a small library of books. It is on the second floor of a security building with a lift.
If you stand on the balcony of the apartment, you are looking at the Place Gambetta, or the town square. The lovely 19th century building in the centre of the square is the Mairie or the Town Hall. On three sides of the square are les Arcades - the arched walkways.
It is lovely to wander around the square, at any time. The food is wonderful - this is, after all, rural France - and reasonably priced. And of course, you are in Bordeaux, one of the great wine-regions on (website hidden) Emilion is a 20 minute drive away, and a similar time on the train.
You will find patisseries for the morning pastry or baguette, and cafés and bars around the square, and a number of great restaurants around the town and in the nearby districts.
Nearby, within easy access by car or train, are the breathtaking sites of pre-history in the Vézère valley, including the Lascaux caves. The Dordogne valley has some wonderful medieval sites, like the great castles at Castelnaud, Beynac and Domme. The beautiful late medieval, early Renaissance city of Sarlat is an easy drive or train ride away and is an absolute must-see.
The town and the apartment are easily accessible by road or by train. Nearest international airports are Bordeaux (about 80 km) and Bergerac (about 20 km). The rail connection to Paris is through either Bordeaux or Libourne. Please contact us for details. We have a housekeeper who lives locally.
This is a wonderful apartment. Right in the centre of a thriving market town with great bars and restaurants. Spacious and very well equipped, we enjoyed a really comfortable stay. Kerry and Paul are extremely attentive before and during the time we spent there. Absolutely no complaints and 100% recommended.
Kerry and Paul are great hosts, really helpful and thoughtful. Absolutely lovely apartment and location exactly as described and pictured. Luxurious. Ste Foy is delightful and <30mins from Bergerac airport. Go there!
Elegant, luxurious, perfectly positioned in a most wonderful town.
We only wish we had stayed for a whole month.
Monsieur Paul and Madame Kerry have a piece of heaven here.
Thank you so much !!
Perfect! The flat is very big, superbly decorated and set (website hidden) Foy La Grande is a lovely little town and the flat is right in the center of it. There is a house book in the flat with all the necessary information for visiting the area and Kerry and Paul also sent us some information via mail which was very useful and interesting.
In a word this is the ideal place for discovering the Dordogne and the domaines around the area. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Great apartment in a great location. Everything was perfectly arranged for our arrival and stay. The apartment overlooks the main square of Ste Foy and it was a pleasure to enjoy the fresh produce sold practically outside the door every morning (and easy to cook it in the large kitchen). Ste Foy itself is well placed to explore both Dordogne and Aquitaine regions, and the Saturday market is well worth visiting.
El apartamento es genial. Bonito, limpio, amplio, decorado con gusto y bien situado para visitar una de las regiones más bonitas de Francia.
The apartment is very well situated in the town square, well equipped,spacious,comfortably furnished and very clean. Paul and Kerry provided some great information on the town and the local area including Restaurants and places to visit that we found very useful.
We enjoyed our stay there very much and would return again in the future.
