Maison de Maître nestled within the bastide village of Pellegrue. As one of only eight bastide towns in Gironde, Pellegrue has an interesting history and also features as a stop on the pilgrimage trail to Saint-Jacques Compostelle. It is however, first and foremost a working village, the dynamic mayor and council are very much dedicated to keeping the village alive and evolving. Current projects to develop a nursing home and other employment opportunities are all testament to this. A town full of life, the weekly market in the covered market hall which is often home to colourful night markets and summer concerts. Centred around a large town square, this 'city of castles' is graced by several elegant residences in her surrounds; Château de Boyrac-Ségur, Château de Lu Gagnac and Château du Puch de Gensac. The 12th century church of Saint-Andre with its Romanesque facade, bell tower and historically listed portal are a fascinating glimpse into Pellegrue's ancient past . In the heart of wine country, yet surrounded by all the necessities of life. Only a couple of minutes by foot is your village bakery. Shop local at the supermarket, cafes, restaurants and enjoy an aperitif or two at the wine bar. A medical centre and pharmacy, bank and post office are all within walking distance. The school complex has a crèche, nursery school, primary and secondary schools and there is a state-of-the-art sports hall and football ground. Pellegrue sits in the centre of the circle formed by Sainte Foy la Grande, Duras, Monsegur, Sauveterre de Guyenne and Castillon la Bataille. You are only 40 minutes from Bergerac airport and 1 hour and 15 minutes from Bordeaux International airport. There is a fast train to Bordeaux from nearby Velines (15 mins) and Castillon (20 mins).
