Incredible location for perfect getaway. The house is set amid the rivers and rolling hills of the beautiful right bank of Bordeaux, which is just 10 min. away. Safe, quiet outdoor environment, perfect for nature lovers and families.

The newly renovated 2 bedroom apartment occupies ground floor of our house and has an independent entrance with private terrace in the garden overlooking beautiful countryside. There are 3 rooms in the apartment:

• 1st room has a double bed (140 x 190) and a wardrobe

• 2nd room has a large sofa-bed (160 x 200)

• 3rd room has a Kitchen, dinning area and a sofa-bed (140 x 200). French doors are opening to a garden terrace

• Shower and toilet

The parking space is next to the house in the garden, bus stop is nearby, Bordeaux airport is about 20 km away.

From this perfect base you can conveniently access the main attractions of the region: cultural Bordeaux, medieval Saint-Émilionn, vineyards and numerous wine Châteaus, popular seaside resort Arcachon, the tallest sand dune, the biggest lake, and ocean beaches of the Atlantic.

For those wishing to explore the region by bike we advise to take a beautiful cycling route running via our village to Bordeaux or neighbouring vineyards and typical French villages. We are always happy to share ideas with our visitors about this area - which country routes to take, how to get to the ocean front and where to go if to buy the best locally produced wine, cheese and bread.

Looking forwards to seeing you here!

This spacious apartment with its own terrace looks over rolling hills, woodlands and vineyards. We provide bikes for those wishing to cycle to Bordeaux centre with stunning views along the Garonne river, or you can cycle through a picturesque countryside.

"Good offer for fair price and, quiet and good location."

Good location and nearby cycling path towards Bordeaux (only 20 kms - highly recomended). Nice bistro in the village, where you can get fresh bread in the morning, and fresh oysters and roasted chick… More

Thank you for taking your time and writing a review about Idyllic Country retreat. We value your opinion. It was a surprise to learn that you had a problem with roll-down shutters. Apparently, the shutters are working in all 3 rooms, and other guests had no difficulties in operating them. The 4th chair which you couldn't' find was in a bedroom. It's unfortunate that you've chosen not to address these issues during your stay, especially that we've been communicating on several occasions. We always listen to our guests and try to make their stay as comfortable as possible.

"Little Gem in the Bordeaux Countryside"

We recently stayed in this gite for a week and found it ideal for our purposes. The location is excellent-in the countryside but only a short drive from Bordeaux. The property itself is spacious-ideal for a small family and there is plenty of outdoor green space. It is immaculately kept and the facilities are more than adequate. The village of Lignan is a three minute drive, with a nice bistro for relaxation. There is a fantastic boulangerie at the main junction (Fagues St Hilaire) where you can get freshly made bread for every meal if you so wish. The supermarket is also just a ten minute drive away. For those interested in wine, the location is in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Meres wine area, with four a five chateaux within a few miles, with dozens more within a 20 mile radius. The owners (Irene and William) live on the first floor-they are very attentive to your needs and very nice people. It suited our purposes perfectly, represented great value for money and we will definite go back to stay there when we return to Bordeaux

"Nice on the outside basic on the inside"

The holiday apartment is in a beautiful area of Bordeaux set in large grounds 10 miles from the city. The property was clean and comfortable but lacked a lot of items which would enhanced the stay. Fi… More

I am writing this on behalf of my parents who are the hosts at this property, as I was their first guest here. My memory of staying here is one of peace and repose. Every effort has been made to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. The furniture and layout were specifically chosen to ensure the comfort of the guests. The kitchen is fully stocked with any utensil necessary to make a lovely meal, having dinner on the terrace while watching the sun set into the rolling hills is a magical experience. Waking up here to the sound of birdsong and nature all around, the shower where a banana tree gently sways by the window are just some of the reasons to stay in this elegant place. I love that the property is only a 30 minute bike ride to Bordeaux, you get the best of both worlds - the vineyards, nature and town just around the corner. Having been a host myself in Bordeaux, I learned about the goodness of such a large majority of people in this community, and am so happy that my parents are now contributing to it. This is a little place of heaven in the sun, enjoy!
