“Quite,friendly spotlessly clean, superb” Excellent time, from the lovely "Welcome pack" to the friendly goodbyes a super experience. The Gite had everything you need and was spotlessly clean and very homely. Right through our stay the owners could not have been more helpful, with local knowledge and friendly advice on the countryside. Generally nothing could be faulted, we will be back next year. If you want a quiet base in which to explore the area then I can highly recommend this accommodation to you.!!

“A luxury holiday in wanderful surroundings with great hosts, foo” We have just returned home from our second stay with andrew and Richard. The first time we stayed in Lavender cottage and wanted to stay there again as we loved it so much. However it was booked and we settled for Vine cottage. This was not second best (as we thought it might be) but equally good. All the cottages (we looked at Rose cottage whilst there), are really comfortable - great beds and bed linen, well equipped kitchens, ( a dishwasher, hurray - very rare in rented cottages in France) and lovely bathrooms . Topped by comfortable sofas and international TV for chilling out and keeping up with the news if wanted. Alternatively, if you want to be quiet, forget the world, read and rest, this is also the place to do it as it's so peaceful amongst the vines. I have travelled all over France and never found a gite of this standard so reasonably priced, actually at any price!! What makes the whole experience so special is the wonderful welcome from andy and Richard, the comfort (in all the cottages), the location, and the great food . For me and probably many people on holiday, it's just wonderful to know that it's not going to be a 'busman's holiday, cooking all the time etc. Apart from the delight of arriving to a great home cooked meal, A bottle of wine and all you need for breakfast, it's wonderful to know that such good food is available on request whenever you want it. We love the area and never tire of wandering through the vineyards, popping into Bordeaux and exploring Liborne - under rated and a great place. St Emilion is of course the jewel in the crown. The coast is a short drive away with wonderful beaches , spectacular sunsets and something for all tastes. We found excellent restaurants in the area, recommended by our hosts but it was also lovely after a long hard day tasting wines to come home to a delicious meal! We plan to return soon , in fact as often as we can.
