Location description from owner
The Aquitaine region
Massugas is situated in the Gironde but only a few kilometres from the borders of the Dordogne and Lot et Garonne. Set in the Bordeaux wine region, with Bergerac, Duras, Entre Deux Mer are closeby. The historic city of Bordeaux with its galleries, museums and shopping is 1 hour away. The world reknowned town of St Emillion, famous for its wine and appreciation off is 30 minutes away. The Dordogne river is 10 minutes away where boat trips and canoe hire are available. The local bastide towns of Ste Foy La Grande, Duras, Monsegur, Sauveterre de Guyenne, Castillion de la Battaile and Bergerac are all within 30 minutes with a different market each day.
The village and commune of Massugas is set amongst the vineyards of the Bordeaux region. The village has its own lake set in an attractive picnic area where locals and visitors can fish for free. Every weekend there is usually one of the local villages en fete which are fun to join in with and really experience the local culture and food. There are plenty of restaurants nearby to suit all budgets and tastes.
Local vignerons including organic wine producers are happy to offer visits and tastings. Most weekends in the spring and summer there are vide greniers and brocantes (car boot/antique fairs). A good way to spend a Sunday morning is looking for a bargain!
An outdoor re-enactment of the last battle of the Hundred Years' War is held every summer in Castillion de la Bataille, really worth a visit. Gensac holds its renowned outside theatre each August, together with musical evenings for all tastes. In June, Monsegur holds its world famous Festival of Swing, 24 hours of Jazz.

“A tremendously relaxing, peaceful house - a perfect holiday”
We stayed at Guillemassot in July 2012. 2 familes; 4 adults and 4 children under 5 and a baby. Despite the house only having 3 bedrooms, we had plenty of space and never felt cramped. The communal areas are bright and airy and cool (it was very hot at times) and the pool and vast gardens provided hours of amusement for the children. The surrounding areas are beautiful with loads to explore; Lac de Gurson was a winner, as well as Duras, Bergerac and St Emilion. There's also a water park near Bergerac that the children loved. We had a wonderful, relaxing and fabulous holiday and Jim and Jan were wonderful hosts; always on hand to answer questions but not in the least obtrusive and Jim's tractor rides were the highlight for the kids! Would definitely recommend it.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and are so pleased that you had an enjoyable holiday. Jim and I both loved having you all to stay, the boys were fantastic and a lot of fun too. Over this winter we are putting in a 4th bedroom and bathroom to provide extra accommodation, plus from next year will be open all year round. Again thank you from us all at Guillemassot.
“Incredible Location and Lovely Hospitality”
We stayed at Guillemassot in June of 2012 and were very impressed. My wife and I were very excited about visiting the SW of France and staying at Guillemassot exceeded our lofty expectations. The old country house has been renovated to perfection by the owners and you instantly feel like you have lived there for years. Jan and Jim are very knowledgable of the surrounding area and are very welcoming into their home. The house is situated on pristine land surrounded by vineyards on all 4 sides. My wife and I feel very lucky to have been able to stay at Guillemassot and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing, beautiful, peaceful holiday. Don't forget to sample the local fair!! C'est Fantastique!
“A place to relax and unwind - perfect”
I stayed at this property in June 2012 with both friends, fiancee and 1 year old daughter. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt relaxed, comfortable and happy - this is a real home from home place. We were greeted with smiles from the hosts and enjoyed a tipple or two with them on the odd occasion which made the trip all the more enjoyable. We had great sunshine but if it had rained then the house is spacious and certainly comfortable enough enjoy time indoors. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed Jan & Jim's dogs, running around the lovely landscaped gardens and a dip in the beautiful pool. I would definitely recommend this property and are already looking to book again next year. Just wish we could move in!!!
“A Warm corner of Heaven”
What a wonderful two weeks we spent in this Gite,not only home from home but pure bliss.To be surounded by Grape vines varied wild life ( Hoopoes,Kestrels,Wild deer.) The owners Jan & Jim were wonderful nothing was too much trouble ,of the family pets Dolly a wire haired Daschund was a delightful daily visitor but only if invited (which she was all the time )the local area contained some wonderful French towns with fantastic markets, plus only being just a short drive from St.Emilion. Cant wait far our return
“Excellent property, facilities and service”
This is a superb renovation of a large barn. Certainly in the 'top two' of many properties we have rented as a group of four friends. Extremely well equipped kitchen and shared areas and a charming garden with heated pool. Five days of poor/bad weather were easy to manage with a roaring log fire, books, games and a large satellite TV. Most unusually, everything is included - wood for the fire, fuel for the barbecue, excellent quality welcome pack - as Jim said 'charging for a welcome pack is hardly 'welcoming'!.
