We where made to feel incredibly welcome by both Eric and Christine from the very start, when they met us at Les Jasmin on our arrival to make sure we understood all of the features of the Gite and Pool.
The standard of the fixtures and fittings in the Gite are very high, and the split level was perfect for letting the teenagers have their own space when they wanted to get away from the adults. It has all the facilities you need to either cook in doors or outside on the Webber BBQ.
The Gite itself is in a quiet hamlet off up a hill nestled near to vineyards with an abundance of wild berries and figs for the picking. We found the neighbors friendly, and enjoyed exploring the local area, with 2 interesting small towns Creon and Langorian to the North and South respectively. There is an excellent cycling track from Creon where you can hire bikes, and some nice walks around Langoiran on the River Garonne. There are too many vineyards to mention, so if you like your wine tasting you don't have to go far.
Its also a great base for getting to Bordeaux, which at the right time of day is less than 40 minutes away, and within an hour you can be at the Arcachon Bay and the dramatic Dunes of Pyla to see the Atlantic crashing in on the golden beaches.
We really enjoyed the stay and appreciated the subtle stylish touches in the Gite. Thanks again to Eric and Christine for making it a relaxing and memorable holiday.
My wife and two of our children were lucky enough to pick this property for our week away at the end of August. I honestly can’t think of a thing that was wrong with the entire experience. The welcome was excellent, the information provided by the host both in relation to the region and the property were only outshone by the wonderful, honest and interesting wine tour and tasting experience provided. We would recommend this to any family looking to relax l, have easy access to the enormous amount of activities and beautiful countryside and enjoy getting to understand more about the world of wine. My daughter never wanted to leave and all the family said this was the best holiday ever. A simple recipe of a great and well equipped property and an interested and interesting host. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt welcome the entire time. In honesty we have very little French between us and have always worried about how people react to this but this was never an issue for our host and we thank them the more for it.
Thank you for a great holiday and we hope to return as soon as we can.
