We are so lucky to have discovered such an outstandingly stylish home in which to spend a relaxing holiday enjoying the stunning setting from the beautifully appointed terrace and infinity pool overlooking vineyards. From the first contact Nora, Peter and Kristal were friendly, courteous and welcoming full of great ideas and suggestions for exploring the area including atmospheric local markets, fabulous wines and superb restaurant recommendations which combined with a very warm welcome and introduction to their gorgeous property full of stylish details where everything you could possibly need for a 5star stay is provided. This meant we could simply unpack, relax and enjoy their gift of a chilled bottle of champagne on the terrace to begin our holiday knowing they were on hand should we need any other guidance or recommendations during our time here. The memories of our stay here will remain with our family always and our two daughters aged 18 and 20 particularly enjoyed their own en suite bathrooms and TVs for some down time after taking full advantage of the pool and stylish sun loungers. The highlight of their holiday however was getting to know Kiwi and Lily the family's lovely dogs and we had to check they weren't smuggled into the car for our very reluctant journey home! We would love to return to this wonderful home next year as we have ordered some fabulous wine from this years harvest in St Emilion - an amazing and beautiful area to visit- so a great excuse to come over and collect it! Thank you for allowing us to share your slice of paradise - A bientot. Mike Sue Georgia and Lucy Harrogate

There was plenty of space and the facilities were top class. The kitchen was fully stocked and having both a washing machine as well as a dishwasher was great. The pool was heated and we used it most days (even when the sun wasn't out) and Mike checked with us every day when we wanted the covers taken off and made sure that it was clean. The local stables were next door and a couple of the family had riding lessons whilst we were there. It was a 10 minute drive up to Sigoules for the local shops but that included a large pharmacy and supermarket. We had a great time there!
