"French rustic charm...with a gorgeous pool!"

"A true bit of French Paradise, peaceful, great pool area..Lots to do.."
Where do I start, my husband and our four year old boy stayed here for a week in June. This property is on 2 acres, my little boy could walk to 'visit the hens' then walk and pick 3 strawberries - one for each of us and we could see him at all times. Fantastic place to chill and unwind. The pool is amazing- shallow area for smaller children and toddlers and then 6ft deep for more experienced swimmers. About 15 mins to a good supermarket, local and reasonable restaurants nearby. Great for walks and cycling, very peaceful, a great place to get away from it all.
We visited La Palmyre Zoo in Royan which was great and a favourite of ours Saint Emilion.
Highly recommend this property with excellent hosts to anyone wanting some decent downtime.
Sitting room very comfortable with log fire, also the main bedroom has a log fire as well.. While we did not need to lit the fire we could not resist on one or two occasions.
Kitchen is well equipped should you decide to stay in which we did on most evenings.The property was so nice we enjoyed sitting out for dinner at the pool or cooking on the barbeque.
I would highly recommend this property we had a great time.

"An absolute gem!"
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.

"Beautiful accommodation with individuality and style"
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.

"A superb experience from start to finish"
This place is simply a delight. The property owners Kim and Maggie have restored the house and grounds to the highest standard - far more like a home than a rental property. The pool is simply the bes… More
