Tavereau, or Number 51 to be precise, is a medieval town house formed of five buildings connected around a courtyard. Behind a high stone wall it is a completely private and spacious world unto itself and yet only a minutes walk to the town square where you will find bars, banks, restaurants and shops.

This luxurious holiday home is located in the bustling Bastide town of Sainte Foy La Grande situated on the Dordogne river.

Famed for its all year round Saturday market the summer brings a vibrancy of appeals to the town including frequent night markets with live music, river swimming, a beach with activities, canoeing and boating. Cycling is also very popular in the area too and bikes easily rented.

Sainte Foy La Grande benefits from a train station which can see you in the centre of cosmopolitan Bordeaux in 50 minutes, the historic Bergerac in 15 minutes and at the jewel of the regions wine production in the UNESCO town of Saint Émilion 30 minutes away with a dozen services a day.

If you have a car (parking no problem) then there is so much more to see. Towns not accessible by public transport spring up in every direction, each linked to the other by the beautiful and bountiful Bordeaux vineyards. Stunning Duras with its 12th Century castle, the restaurants and golf course of the legendary Chateau Vigiers together with pretty market towns such as Eymet are all around a 20 minute drive.
