Bordeaux Country Home Le Jasmin
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Creatively restored from the old wine store, Jasmin has been transformed into a light airy dwelling. The split level terraces separated by the original wine vats make an ideal place for quiet relaxation and long lazy meals.
A comfortable lounge with armchairs, open fire place and a sofa bed lead to a traditional fitted pine kitchen. Two very pretty bedrooms both have en-suite bathrooms, the twin opens onto the upper terrace.
Jasmin shares a large private pool with the adjacent property but it has its own lawned garden.

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.

"Beautiful setting for a relaxing and fun-filled family holiday."
We enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the beautiful setting along with the activities on site and in the local area. There was something for everyone: swimming, badminton, cycling along the canal path, canoeing, local restaurants, St Emilion, night market at Monsegur, beautiful scenery. Tim was extremely knowledgeable about the region and nothing was too much trouble. We would love to return.

"very rural unspoiled France"
Enjoyable holiday. This is very rural France. The farmhouse reflects rural France has charm however don't expect it to be 5star. This is typical French house basic, stone walls, dark and a little musty downstairs. The area is lovely, lots of little villages. We hired bikes from Tim and had a great time cycling along the canal.The area is flat and so you can cycle for miles at ease. Bordeaux is about 50mins away and excellent for shopping. There is a convenient supermarket about 5mins drive away. Tim is usually around and is extremely helpful. The pool is brilliant and the kids spend a lot of time in it during the week and they enjoyed playing badminton on the lawn. Lots of pluses for Jasmin

"Beautiful rural France at its best!"
Lovely house in a wonderful unspoilt area. Surrounded by sun-baked medieval towns and bounded by the Garonne River and Canal, this area is green and fertile despite the warmth of the sun.
The house is in delightful grounds and it was a pleasure to spend time sat outside, using the pool and playing badminton on the lawn.
Tim was welcoming and friendly and did his best to sort out any difficulties with a minimum of fuss.
We had a splendid holiday in Jasmine and would love to come back sometime if we can.

"A beautiful little haven from which to explore the Gironde"
Tim and Lin's lovely Jasmine cottage is rightly named as the heady scent from the jasmine trees fill the air. The cottage is authentically rustic but very comfortable, situated close, but not too close, to the other properties on the site. The gardens and pool are very well kept and were a great asset. The owners were discreet but always on hand to give advice on days out and very friendly and approachable. We had a wonderfully relaxing week at Jasmine cottage and would highly recommend it to other families.
One request: a review and upgrade of kitchen utensils would be great - not quite enough cutlery and no bread knife!

"Cottage with character in a tranquil setting."
We stayed for a week in this lovely and very peaceful rural setting. I am sure that if the weather had been nicer we wouldnt have moved too far and would have enjoyed the on site pool too as the location was very relaxing. Evenso we had a lovely stay in this converted cottage and were helped by the owner to choose god places to visit, eat and shop. This is a beautiful part of France and the cottage had all amenities necessary.

"Fabulous holiday in beautiful surroundings"
We had a great holiday. The house has character and is fitted to a high standard. Plenty of room for a family of four. The grounds and gardens are generously proportioned and without a doubt the swimming pool is a large part of the attraction of this holiday property. It is a fairly large pool, with shallow and deep end and a diving board for kids. It is safely fenced off with childproof locks. The surroundings are beautiful with fruit orchards and the Canal du Midi close by. It is fairly rural and you will need a car, but it is a good base to explore this particular part of France. The owners will also rent out bikes and there is a network of cyclepaths within easy reach. Bordeaux is within an hours drive and the coast with beautiful sandy beaches approximately 90 min by car. The owners are very welcoming and are at hand if there are any problems.
