In this village house in Saint Martin de Gurson, at about 100m from our home, there used to be a pharmacy. It dates from the years 1800…now we put our stamp on it…
The white gable is in a beautiful contrast with the clear blue shutters. It’s a surprising house. It’s a lot bigger than it shows from the outside!
We maintained the old authentic buidling elements as old doors and wooden floors, but as we love modern decoration too, we mixed it with lots of white and design.
In total there are 4/5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a library, a pool table room, a lounge with a big fire place, an open kitchen and a huge covered barn and fenced garden of 1000m2.
The village house is only for rent as a whole and can accommodate 1 or 2 families. It sleeps up to 12 persons. Ideal for a unique vacation on a lovely spot.

Saint Martin de Gurson
A mini-village on the edge of the Dordogne department. It’s our home. We’re on the crossing with the departments of Gironde, Lot et Garonne and Charente. This means there’s a lot to visit in this region.
St Martin counts about 500 inhabitants; of which about a 100 of them live in the centre of the village; the rest of them live near the woods, prairies and vineyards.
Although it’s a tiny place, we do have a bakery, a pub-restaurants and than there is “chez Josiane” where you can buy whatever you think of, from postcards to presents, from hen food to building gear, to cigarettes….it’s a bit sightseeing on its own!
Everything is concentrated around our Church, built in the Middle ages: a little jewel!
At about 10 km you find all supermarkets. A nearby bakery delivers every day “at home”, very handy!
Welcome to wine country!
We're in the heart of wine country in Sain Martin de Gurson! Here you can enjoy award-winning local red, rosé and white Bergerac and Montravel wines, made at properties a short distance from your holiday home.
Just 30 minutes away are St. Emilion and Pomerol, exclusive districts of the vast Bordeaux vineyards and home to some of the finest (and the most expensive!) wines in the world. We can organise a tour of a vineyard on request.
