The exterior is the real gem to this location for families. The enclosed gardens provide lots of space for children in a safe environment. Large lawned gardens and a protected pool area, swings and a badminton net enables the kids to exercise while the parent relax by the pool. The house has its own terrace and BBQ.
A great selection of bikes are available for a small rental, the valley of the Garonne is ideal for leisurely cycling with the canal towpath close by for picnics, fishing and watching the boats navigate.
The region is diverse in agriculture with many local markets to be explored, the house is surrounded by a kiwi plantation.
The river Ciron is a wonderful canoeing trip and a great day out can be spent on the Atlantic coast at Arcachon with its water park. Fresh oysters and mussels can be tasted direct from this section of coast.
Friendly English owners will provide assistance & local advice, baby sitting service on request.
Golf, canoeing & horse riding available locally.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The region has so much to offer the visitor, we are ideally located for visiting the many famous chateaux of Sauternes, St Emilion, Pomerol Graves and the Medoc. We have many contacts and can arrange wine tastings with the owners.
A pleasant day out can be spent canoeing on the river Ciron at Villandraut or the surf of the Atlantic coast where the sand dunes are the highest in Europe. Arcachon is the local port for fresh seafood, the oysters and mussels are not to be missed.
The whole area has a wealth of history having spent 300 years under the English rule, many Bastide towns still survive today!
Bordeaux is a city that must not be missed, over the last 10 years it has been transformed into a modern, vibrant port with its beautiful architecture and monuments now on full display.
One of the favourite visits is to St Emilion, an historic town dating back to Roman times with its underground church from the 8th century and its labyrinth of tunnels and caves where much of the prestige wine is stored.
Its magnificent position high above the Dordogne valley with its many artisan shops and restaurants selling much of the local produce.
Mid summer there are local music festivals in the surrounding towns. A night spectacular is the Battle of Castillion where the English were finally defeated after 300 years in the 16 century. Well worth the visit it has many players who re-enact the final battle all in period costume.

"Great! Peaceful place to unwind and relax"
We enjoyed a lovely week here at La Rose. The house, garden and pool are just beautiful. Plenty to see and do nearby. We had fun canoeing, which the owner arranged for us. Wish we were still there!… More

"Relaxation with activities for everyone"
On a whole we found the entire stay very pleasant , very relaxing . We had spent week 1 of our holiday in Paris so the tranquility here was very welcome. Great selection of movies and music to choose from and the bar b que area was beautiful and cool to rest and relax in. The swimming pool is perfect and plenty of sun loungers . The book within the house recommends 3 restaurants and we would also endorse those , although two are not on the cheap side they are worth it. We also did the canoeing 4 hour trip and our teenagers loved that , so did the parents . No local shops so best to arrived early and go to the supermarkets 15mins away- it has absolutely everything you could want. Our teenagers loved the week here as the pool never let boredom set it. Scenery is just beautiful .

"Relaxing holiday in beautiful countryside"
My family and I stayed in La Rose for one week at the end of June. Tim, the owner, met us on our arrival and was very friendly and helpful. We have two boys ages 11 and 12 and we all enjoyed tennis on a local court, cycled along the picturesque canal, and enjoyed swimming, boules and badminton on the grounds of the house. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The barbecue was put to good use.The surrounding area was very quiet so it is an ideal location if you are looking for a more low key break. Shops, markets, good restaurants all within a short drive.

"Very nice Farmhouse in rural France with helpful owners."
Good accommodation and the patio ideal for barbeques and the swimming pool is spotless and a good size.
Good centre for accessing Bordeaux and St Emillion. Car essential for exploring and accessing local area. Train station at La Reole handy for travel to Bordeaux.

"Lovely accommodation in beautiful setting"
Peaceful setting with beautiful gardens. We stayed in La Rose with our 1 year old daughter for a week. The accommodation was full of farmhouse character while having enough mod cons to make our stay more than comfortable.
We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and having Tim and Lin on hand with helpful advice and recommendations of places to visit.
An ideal spot for exploring the region or simply enjoying a day relaxing by the pool.

"A peaceful retreat."
What a wonderful relaxing place. It had plenty of room for the three of us and was full of character. Plenty for children to do. Badminton, swimming and table tennis plus the swings. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. They had lots of knowledge of the area and what to do during our stay. I couldn't believe how peaceful it was there. We bought supplies with us but everything we needed was there when we arrived.

"relaxing and easy in beautiful surroundings"
Perfect for a quiet family holiday. Easy journey from Bordeaux Airport. The owner is on site and incredibly helpful. Accomodation was clean, the garden and pool were fab and the surrounding area was peaceful and very pretty. La Reole was 10 mins away with supermarket and typical french town amenities. Lots to visit - St Emilion, Bazas, night market at Monsegiur was great fun. Coast, Dune de Pyla and water park possible but about hour and a half away. Would not hesitate to return and ideal for larger groups if Jasmine cottage also rented.
