Guests tell us the location and set up of La Rose and Jasmin is ideal with its landscaping and plantation

they really enjoy that each house has its own garden area and individual parking.

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.

"Wonderful setting for 2 family holiday."

Once again we had a great holiday with all the family as we could rent the 2 gites which have a shared pool, ideal for the 8 of us. The owners are very welcoming and extremely helpful on matters of where to visit, eat, etc.. This is our third visit in 3 years! There are bikes available to rent which means we have fun cycling along the canal or the local very pretty countryside. A fantastic lazy week!
