Everything about our stay on Cecile's family's vineyard was magical. Cecile is a generous and gracious host who went out of her way to welcome us (for example, greeting us late at night after travel delays caused a midnight arrival and driving us back to the train station the next morning to retrieve a rental car).
The vineyard is glorious and the cottage is wonderfully appointed -- we were so thrilled with the setting and the accommodations that we asked Cecile if we could stay on for two more days. The grapes were being harvested and it was a joy to witness the process.
The location is perfect and centrally located for so much of what we planned to do. We could not have been happier. Merci, Cecile!
From the moment we arrived we knew that this was going to be the ideal place for our ten day visit. Once we had freshened up we joined Fabrice and Alexandra who had invited us for a glass of wine and a beer. They made us feel very welcome from the first moment we met. They also provided us with all the local knowledge we needed to enjoy our stay.
The property was clean, well equipped, cared for and gave us everything we needed. We were able to cook and eat outside as the weather during our stay was perfect. The pool was covered at night which means even if the temperature outside drops it is possible to swim late into the evening. And as soon as the cover is pulled back in the morning the pool temperature is perfect for an early morning dip. There was more than ample seating both in the sun or shade by our Gite, in the garden and by the pool, as well as plenty of loungers. Ideal for those relaxing days.
The location, too, was perfect for exploring the region. There are so many things to do in this part of France we are sure that we will return to this area one day, and indeed this property providing it is available. I look forward to being able visiting again in either the spring or summer months as I am sure that we would see some fabulous colours.
The family have a lovely dog called Junior who looked as sad as I felt when we had to say goodbye.
We would like to take this opportunity thank Fabrice, Alexandra, Floren and Junior for a great holiday.
