"Everything you need for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful location"
Acabanes is the perfect location for a family holiday. It is so well equipped and every little detail has been thought about and provided. We shared our holiday with friends too as Acabanes is also perfect for large groups of friends. The children had a ball with all the places to explore and the amazing pool. There are also lots of beautiful places to explore nearby and great places to eat. There is lots of local information provided to help out with planning your time. We didn't manage to fit in everything we wanted to do in a week so we will definitely be back.

"Peace & tranquillity in quite possibly the finest region in France."
The location of Acabanes is stunning, extremely rural supporting a wonderful collection of countryside wildlife to see and hear during your stay and surrounded by beautiful fields and woodland. The facilities inside and outside the property are fantastic, we have stayed in many premium holiday rentals in France, Portugal, Mallorca and Florida, and this certainly ranks right up there with the best. Tracey & Adi (the owners) have spared no expense in providing the perfect relaxing holiday for even the most hard to please of guests. We fortunately had the pleasure of meeting them both as they were visiting the region at the time of our stay. During our conversation it was interesting and inspiring to learn of how hard they have worked and strived to make both of their wonderful properties a place for others to enjoy as much as they have themselves, a lovely couple. The property is very clean throughout, the beds extremely comfortable (and large), the bathroom facilities excellent, the living area spacious with entertainment/activities options also excellent. Great pool and lounges, with all outside amenities available very good indeed. Okay, residential just about covered I think, then there's the area within which Acabanes is situated. The few times we did venture out during our week was always a joy, the region is one of the finest wine producing areas in the world, and this is clearly evident when driving through miles and miles of beautiful fields and rolling hills of vineyards, with an incredible châteaux to view almost every mile. To re-iterate the point of how rural the property is, on a visit to a lovely small town called Eymet about 20 mins drive away, we did not see another vehicle en route for at least 10 mins, lovely. That said the nearest small supermarket in the village of Sigoules (less than 10 mins away) is terrifically well equipped and would suit most needs. We didn't venture too far in the short time spent, despite that all the places we visited were lovely, Saint Emilion in particular, and all never too far afield. Overall the best week away we have had in quite some time and definitely worth consideration.
