Since then we are almost fully booked from April through September and we are very proud of the reviews we have received. Karin is an editor, but she also takes care of the houses and gardens, Gijs is a writer and board room consultant and facilitates business retreats.
Karin ten Kate purchased this House in 2010
Why Karin ten Kate chose Groléjac
We have dreamt all our lives of offering a quiet, inspiring place to people to relax, be happy and rebalanced from the pressures of society. We found Lagrenie in 2010 and we have turned it into something unique: the authenticity of a medieval domaine with all modern comfort you could wish. Lagrenie is surrounded by woods and has views over the river, but is very close to all famous castles, markets and villages of the Dordogne.
What makes this House unique
Original stone houses. Quite location nearby any possible attraction. Authentic, romantic place with large swimming pool (6X12), trampoline, table tennis, stunning views, ruins.

Beautiful and magical. I want to come back!
A Truly amazing and magical place in the Dordogne
Our stay with Karin, at Lagrenie, is truly one of the best experiences we have had, in our travels through France. The property is beautiful, as was the house we stayed in. It had everything you would need. It is large and comfortable and had such a warm, welcoming feel. Awaiting us, in the fridge was a bottle of really nice white wine, bottled water and also fresh eggs, from Karin's chickens. Karin is truly one of the kindest, most thoughtful people we have ever met and is a perfect host. She really wants to make sure you enjoy your stay, at her property and in the area. We were there for 6 days and did not want to leave! If you are going to be in this area, you should definitely consider reserving this property. It will make your visit to the area so much better! When we return, in the fall, we hope to stay here again. Many thanks and best wishes to Karin and her husband (we did not get to meet him, as he was away, but hope to meet him, when we return).
We spent a few days at New Year. From the two chairs on the porch to take off our boots, to the confortable living-room and wonderful fireplace, ample cosy bedrooms, perfect kitchen, the whole experience was delightful.
Many excursions, nearby shops, and wonderful hosts,
we loved coming back to Lagrenie every evening and having an owl for sole company!
A place out of time
La Grenie has the most magical atmosphere: the forest is alive, the stones ponder and the superb landscaping makes even the most aimless stroll and adventure. The houses themselves are tasteful and uncluttered, with wonderful architectural quirks, but remain welcoming and cosy. Before you know it you breathing is slow and steady and your shoulders have gone back to where they should be. The local area is full of fabulous places to visit too. The owners are friendly but don't meddle. They provided an extra bit of kitchen kit when asked and really knew about the local area. All in all a perfect place to have a real family holiday or a romantic retreat.
Idealer Ort zum Entspannen und Entdecken in herrlicher Umgebung
Gemütlich eingerichtetes Ferienhaus mit Holzofen in ruhiger und reizvoller Lage etwa 2km westlich von Grolejac (dort auch Bäcker, Metzger und kleiner Supermarkt). Der beheizte Pool war der Höhepunkt für uns und unsere Kinder. Trampolin und Tischtennis stehen zur Verfügung. Das Haus ist ideal für Entdeckungen im Perigord Noir. Die Gastegeberin war sehr aufmerksam, die Wohnung war perfekt vorbereitet.
Ein echter Geheimtip.
Excellent séjour !
Très belle maison dans un cadre très joli. Maison très bien équipée. Et l’accueil est très agréable. Hautement recommandé !!!
Les Cèpes is a stone house with several terraces that is part of the domaine Lagrenie, close to Groléjac. It is quietly situated at the end of a wood road, but just 15 minutes from the Medieval city of Sarlat and the famous villages Domme and La Roque-Cageac, and only 25 minutes from the castles of Castelnaud and Beynac. Located on a hillside it provides fantastic views over the river the Dordogne and the Perigordian hills.
