The River Dordogne passes through the Libourne area, and during a hot summers day, there is nothing more refreshing than taking a quick swim in the river or hiring a canoe and gently paddling your way along the river, watching nature and viewing some of the more impressive chateaux and half timbered houses that lie along the river banks from an entirely new angle. The Dordogne River also provides some of the nicest walking and horse riding routes in the region. Fishing permits for the Dordogne River are easy to get hold of, available from most of the tabacs in the Libourne area.

THE OWNER WHO MET US EVEN THOUGH WE ARRIVED QUITE LATE,WAS CHARMING AND HELPFUL. BECAUSE OUR STAY WAS IN FEBRUARY,WE NEEDED HEATING AT 10 EUROS PER DAY.IF WE WOULD HAVE REQUIRED THE CLEANING SERVICE,IT WOULD HAVE BEEN 60 EUROS. ST EMILION IS BEAUTIFUL AND A GOOD BASE TO EXPLORE.

Impressed with the many favorable reviews for Vines and Roses, we decided that these cottages were worth a closer look. Fortunately, we were in Spain this past October (2016) and would have a chance spend a week at Vines and Roses after our Spain tour ended. This would give us a chance to check facility out personally, and we were glad we did because we had a marvelous stay. We arrived late at night and a delicious meal awaited us including a lovely bottle of local wine, French bread, cheese, onion soup, and beef bourguignon. It was all delicious. We spent the next week getting to know as much as possible about the area. We found that there are so many things to see, we felt we only had time to scratch the surface in our one week stay. Moreover, Andy was extremely helpful from first to last with excellent local information and a fun sense of humor. We could not have asked for more from our accommodations. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed was very comfortable, the guidebooks in the cottage were very helpful, and due to a late harvest, the grapes were hanging heavily on the vines only a stone’s throw from the front door. The cottage was well stocked with necessities including some laundry soap that my wife claimed got her clothes the brightest they have ever been. All in all we had a great time and are currently planning our return for a much longer stay. My wife and I would give Vines and Roses six stars, but five stars is the highest allowed, so our rating will only show as a five. Vines and Roses truly exceeded our expectations.
