Location description from owner

The Aquitaine region

A love affair with France has been long and enduring. Her natural beauty, finesse, glorious climate, fertile land and rich and varied produce have made her desirable and desired throughout the centuries.Forces of nature and conquest have carved an area rich in culture and diversity. Lascaux and surrounding caves house the largest art collection of pre-historic paintings in the world. Fortified medieval towns form the back drop to weekly markets. Vines cultivated, most famously in St Emilion, Pomerol, the Medoc for Margeaux and Graves for Sauternes, produce some of the finest bottles of wine money can buy. And Bordeaux, an incredibly elegant and vibrant city awarded world heritage status for its dramatic sweeping classical and neo-classical waterfront is a haven of art galleries, parks, museums, great restaurants and shopping galore!

Juillac

The 'Gourmand village' of Juillac, set on high ground overlooking the magnificent Dordogne valley, has its own award winning restaurant. Rows and rows of immaculate vines produce highly acclaimed wines and many vineyards 'open doors' throughout the year inviting visits and tastings. Concerts, antique fairs, art expositions and night-markets and many other events run throughout the summer months in Juillac and neighbouring villages.For those who enjoy exploring, cycling, local walks and canoeing are a great way to get to know the area and appreciate the tranquillity and outstanding beauty. Bring binoculars for great birdwatching!

“A beautiful home from home”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

Three young children (boys, 11 and 9, girl, 4), two grandparents and mum & dad (ages not to be disclosed) loved Villa Edith. Deanna and her family looked after us wonderfully - always there and responsive when we needed anything, or were even more clueless than usual. The house is beautifully decorated and is really well appointed (modern equipment and functionality where it is needed, charming rustic French where it is wanted). The swimming pool was an oasis in the baking heat of a Dordogne summer (take care of alarm system which faintly senile adults tend to forget). We had a fantastic holiday, completely relaxed (meaning nothing went wrong which is unusual) and deeply comfortable. The one thing I would have changed? Air con (or mobile cooler systems) in the bedrooms. We will be back soon.

Fans have now been arranged in all bedrooms for the comfort of guests on those long and sultry summer evenings.

“A love letter to Villa Edith”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2012

Villa Edith, I must admit I was sceptical as to how you would accomodate a group of 12 young professionals. How dare I? You stole my heart from the moment I saw your large, renovated frame. The simple drive from Bordeaux was instantly forgotten when we reached you. Your rustic yet modern delight, the acres of peaceful vineyards surrounding you like sea to a desert island. Edith, they say it's the inside that counts and I truly believe that. When I entered your doors I wandered around for many moments, wide-eyed and excited. How have I found myself somewhere so beautiful inside and out, so comforting, so reasonably priced? After visiting all of your bedrooms I went into your kitchen – a tremendously welcoming place. Little did I know my laziness meant I would be spending a small amount of time here. All of this splendidness would have been enough for me Edith. You had me at chateaux. But then I was passed a refreshing beverage and pointed towards your garden. The sun was shining, giving your pool the mirage-like appearance of molten emeralds. I took a seat next to it and leaned back. To my surprise the seat flew back and I spilt my beverage. Don't worry dear Edith, I'll forgive you. After a moment of practice I was a master recliner. From the seat at the edge of the pool, I took it all in, soaked it all up and wished I had my sunglasses. You are so much more than I thought you would be. After one of the best weeks of my life I found myself doing the same thing, sitting poolside but this time with sufficient eye protection. I was even more in love with you. Edith you are as close to perfection as a villa could be and I hope to see you again one day. I don't know how I will find anything else like you. Yours longingly, Lewis

A poetic response to a liaison with this charming house, glad you enjoyed your summer romance! Deanna
