Right from the moment we booked , we were provided with the most comprehensive information we have ever received from a rental property.
Carolyn and Steve were most welcoming and were always available when you wanted them and not when you didn't !! Although the gite attaches to their own property , we went for 3 days without seeing them at all !!
The gite is beautifully finished and all the basic essentials are provided. We recommend a trip to a chateau vineyard and once again , Steve organised this for us before we arrived. After the trip , a visit to St Emilion is a must - beautiful hill town with lovely restaurants and many tastings available
Also provided in the gite was a wine rack of various local wines with descriptions and you can chose what takes your fancy and leave the money.
Swimming pool is also lovely and you have sole use when required.
Lots of good local restaurants nearby and big supermarkets not too far away.
We did a trip to Bordeaux one day and went by train from a local station (about €30 for a return trip for both of us) BIG TIP - when you arrive in Bordeaux catch the tram to the centre €1.70 each , otherwise it's a long walk through not the best of surroundings!
To sum up , fantastic hosts , beautiful gite , lovely surroundings and so much to do and see or just relax and totally unwind.
We hope to go back and you can't get a better recommendation than that !
Thank you Carolyn and Steve - you're the best !
The house is fabulous and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The rooms are divine and look like they belong in an interiors magazine. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. The new pool is a perfect size and was a lovely temperature and well looked after throughout our stay.
The house is a short drive (definitely need a car) to Bakery (5mins), Intermarche, Pharmacy, Vet, Doctor (8/10mins) and so many great places to visit (St. Emilion, Libourne (15/20 mins) and then slightly further afield Bordeaux and Bergerac) and there are lovely walks and cycles around the vineyards close by.
What made this holiday extra special and completely stress-free are the amazing owners Sonia and Saul. From the moment we booked the house Sonia was very generous with her time, answering all our questions and providing so much wonderful information about the area, we planned pretty much our whole holiday on her wonderful suggestions. Also, the incredibly detailed house manual meant we didn't have to spend the first few days trying to figure everything out!
I would recommend this house to anyone - a group of friends, families with older kids, families with younger kids, families with grandparents (handy bedroom ensuite on the ground floor) or if you are looking for a romantic escape or even going on your own as you are surrounded by lovely neighbours and would feel safe.
