No. 51


Renovated by owners Mike Robertson and Steven Coleman, a theatre lighting designer and nurse respectively, we offer you the exclusive use of our house which features four sitting rooms, a courtyard garden and five double bedrooms of which three are ensuite and two share a shower room next door.


The bedrooms are located over two floors in the main sixteenth century house and a floor below that is the main kitchen with a larder and dining table for 12.

Down to the ground floor where on the left is a salon with a grand piano and a home cinema. On the other side of that hallway is the pub. A snooker room with a darts board, stacks of games and banquette seating again for 12. The perfect place for late night revelry. From the pub one way is a handy WC and the other is the summer kitchen which is another sitting room with an auxiliary kitchen servicing an indoor gas BBQ, dining table and comfortable seating in sofas and directors chairs. Beyond here is a laundry room available to you.

The courtyard has different zones to relax in, each shady or sunny with the passing of the hours and an L shaped swimming pool to cool the body and relax the mind. At the far end of the pool is a covered pergola for two and a door into the gymnasium with weights, a rowing machine, electric relaxation bed and a full sized Swedish sauna.

Around & About

Sainte Foy La Grande is a medieval bastide town that is enveloped on three sides by Pineuilh, its more modern suburb. Over the bridge is another of the ‘burbs – Port-Sainte-Foy-et-Ponchapt and in both places are supermarkets, restaurants, butchers and bars. Tavereau is slap bang in the middle of the bastide and along the two main streets (Rue de la République and Rue Victor Hugo) together with the town square there are local shops, bars, restaurants and banks. A five minute drive or a twenty minute walk will take you to the edge of Pineuilh where there is a retail park with a hypermarket and other large outlet stores. Two streets from the house is the Dordogne. There is a long promenade to drink in the view or more sensibly there are seating areas where you can drink in the wine.
