If it is a french rustic experience you are looking for then this is for you. We spent one week of our lives in a dream house providing an unforgetable experience. Located only 10 minutes from the Gironde but in the middle of the Pinaeu vineyards this is the real french deal with either the gorgeous pool or the nearby towns to entertain you then I promise you will not be disappointed. The hosts Kim and Maggie are a lovely couple and will ensure that all of your requirements including fresh eggs from the resident hens are met.

Firstly the House. Beautifully modernised with lots of character. Really comfortable and home from Home. The Pool was something else, tremenedously popular with all the family. Being close to water... more

We stayed in this renovated farmhouse during August with 3 younger children & 2 teenagers. The setting is quiet & peaceful, in a small hamlet surrounded by fields of vines & sunflowers. The house offers a great combination of rustic charm & contemporary style. Most of our time was spent relaxing in the pool area which was larger than expected & beautifully clean. There is a comfortable shaded seating area & bar with a fridge in addition to a BBQ area & further outdoor fridge, great for keeping drinks cool without needing to go back inside the house!
There was WiFi & a TV with British channels available which was perfect for our teenage children.
Kim & Maggie were friendly & helpful hosts. We really enjoyed our stay in this great house which offers far more than you would usually expect with a holiday let.
