We visited as a large group of friends for a wine tasting weekend. The house is virtually it's own compund, set behind a huge gated wall and with a mind boggling arrangement of rooms. The living area is huge with a nice fireplace. Kitchen is very well stocked. All the rooms were very nicely decorated. And you're right in the centre of town so can easily get to the various tasting caves or winery cellar doors. Guillaume was super friendly and very responsive to all our emails.

The pool is beautiful, perfect for a the number of guests. Everything is clean and well designed. We enjoyed the very well appointed summer kitchen. We used the grill for some family meals and it was excellent. The whole family would love to come again!
