Massugas, Gironde - Set amongst the Vines and Rolling Countryside of South-West France

Massugas is a small village surrounded by Bordeaux vineyards, as far as the eye can see. The countryside, with its gently rolling hills and quiet roads, vineyards, and oak forests, is pretty and ideal for driving, cycling or walking. 10 minutes from the Dordogne River, with river trips and canoe hire for the more energetic, take a picnic and make a day of it. Massugas is a good base to visit the world famous town of St Emilion dedicated to wine and the appreciation off. Other towns within 30 minutes are Castillion de la Bataille which every summer (for 6 weeks) hosts a re-enactment of the last battle of the 100 years war, a fabulous outside spectacle. Monsegur, with its world famous jazz festival in June, is closeby as is Ste Foy La Grande with its enormous Saturday morning market. The town of Bergerac with its old town by the quay is worth a visit for shopping, museums and many restaurants. The city of Bordeaux is only an hour away and offers extraordinary architecture and of course, fabulous shopping for all budgets.

Local specialities such as wine, foie gras, confit de canard, walnuts, prunes and chaume cheese can be bought directly from producers or at the markets. Visits to vineyards and wine tastings are easily arranged. Restaurants, some of which specialise in local Perigordian food, are plentiful. Many restaurants still offer a 3 course lunch with wine for 12 euros per head. But there are plenty to choose from to suit all tastes and budgets.

All in all the countryside in and around Massugas is a beautiful area to stay and offers within a short distance plenty of interesting and varied places to visit and enjoy. Ideal for families and couples of all ages whether you want a summer holiday or an off season break.

We were shown round their beautiful gite set in spectacular grounds. The cottage is beautifully decorated in a shabby chic vintage style with all the modern amenities you would wish. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed which leads into a large ensuite with a roll top bath, the second bedroom is of a very generous size. Downstairs the spacious living area looks out to a charming decking equipping for outdoor living. The kitchen area is modern and well equipped. The surroundings of the gite cannot be beaten with peaceful views over the extensive grounds, plenty of woodland to explore, a tree house to find and a small chapel to visit on the estate. The swimming pool was for our own exclusive use and was situated close to the gite, it too was well equipped with plenty of chairs and was fenced for safety. The owners could not have been more helpful and friendly, we shared a lovely bottle of wine hearing how Marie- George and Phillipe had restored their beautiful home. To conclude we had a fabulous time and would highly recommend this property. We will definitely be returning!

The surrounding area is delightful with plenty to do as well as stunningly pretty villages and scenery. Our hosts provided everything you could need, the property was maintained to a very high standard with nice personal touches like the eggs from their hens as well as own grown tomatoes as part of a welcome. The pool was one of the main attractions for us for this villa and it does not disappoint. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it and it is well equipped with plastic cups and wine glasses for those all important drinks by the pool. We were not blessed with sun everyday but there was so much to do within easy reach of the car that we balanced it all and still managed to use the pool most days and get sun burnt! All told one of our favourite holidays. Many thanks Pippa and Philippe for hosting us. Sean, Annemarie, Emily and Joe
