The Aquitaine region

This property is located in the north eastern area of the Gironde bordering the Dordogne. Hot summers and temperate winters characterise this region with summer weather starting mid-May. Grape harvest usually takes place from second half of September to early October usually under glorious blue skies.

Saint-Emilion

Our property is ideally situated for walking, sightseeing, wine tasting and simply enjoying the famous French way of life. The picturesque medieval village of St Emilion - registerd with UNESCO as World Heritage - ten minutes from the property has been renowned for its wines since the second century. Château Cheval Blanc, Château Ausone are among the most famous. A stone's throw away is the Pomerol region, home of Château Petrus. If you are game for an hour's drive, you are in the Medoc and ready for visits to the renowned Château Margaux or Château Mouton Rothschild. Local tourist boards organise trips to various châteaux and courses in wine tasting are available in Saint Emilion.

A visit to Bordeaux is a must and has just been classified UNESCO World Heritage. The stately 18th century river front - on the Garonne river - is breathtaking.The inumerable winding streets are lined with charming 3 story buildings with lovely stone work and graceful wrought iron balconies giving this city all its charm. Quaint hidden squares, boutiques, restaurants abound and the Archeological museum is incredibly rich and informative about Bordeaux's Roman past.

Arcachon, the Pyla Dune and the splendid Atlantic beaches are an hour and a half drive with motorway most of the way.

If you wish to visit the Dordogne, Sarlat and the Lascaux caves are an hour and a half drive through lovely scenic countryside.

"Splendid house, friendly hosts"

This home in a small town near St. Emilion is a perfect, luxurious escape into the beauty of the vineyard countryside. The house itself is lovely and walking through the orchard to the wonderful swimming pool was a daily pleasure.
Daily markets are close by in several of the small towns and there are a few very good restaurants within a short drive.
The hosts, Eve and Francois, are charming and generous and - happily - bilingual.
We heartily recommend this little haven to anyone seeking a peaceful retreat and we hope to return soon.

"A Wine Lovers Paradise"

Wonderfully situated amongst vineyards and Chateaux, this lovely old house has stunning views across a beautiful valley. Just 10minutes from the historic world heritage site of St. Emilion this is a great location for a quiet and totally relaxing break, with restaurants, supermarket and boulangerie a short drive away. The well designed accommodation offers excellent facilities and is spacious and full of light. The friendly and generous English speaking owners, who live next door, did everything possible to ensure that our holiday was a great success. We are certainly hoping to make a return visit.

"Lovely home with incredible views"

Clean,comfortable,well positioned,great vineyard views,affordable,very accommodating and pleasant owners,lovely local walks,tranquil setting,well appointed and fitted kitchen. On the negative, some issues with the internet,at times,as the main source is in the owners house and a bit too far to service the rental house. Even though the house has 4 bedrooms, and should sleep eight comfortably,the beds are too narrow ( one of my party fell out of bed, as she turned over. ( 30 inch beds not the normal ! ) there is also not enough toilets on the bedroom floor for 7-8 adults. There were 7 adults for one toilet,although there is a second toilet on the ground floor. None of the bedrooms have a full ensuite bathroom. Helpful that all but one had a wash basin. House better suited for a party of 4.

Thank you for the review and suggestions: RE WIFI indeed there were problems and we have now managed to improve service. Re toilets, however, 2 separate toilets for 7-8 persons seems correct. We never advertised "en suite bathrooms" for every room just for one room. Nevertheless, 2 shower rooms and one bathroom with tub and 3 ensuite lavabos seem fairly generous for a holiday home. We have never had 8 adults who requested 8 individual beds. We usually have 2-3 couples in double beds. In fact the house is ideal for 2-3 couples plus 2-4 children.
