The property is a lot larger than the photos do justice and has been exceptionally well finished. The kitchen is well stocked with a dishwasher and convex hobs and a coffee machine. There is a lovely fireplace in the living room. Whilst it wasn't cold enough to warrant its use during our stay (26 degrees in October!) I would imagine it would create a lovely atmosphere. There is a bit garden space outside with tables and deckchairs to enjoy the sunshine and the bedrooms are all good sizes. The owners were incredibly friendly and accommodating. There is a supermarket five minutes away and the house is approx 35 minute drive from the airport. We would certainly stay here again 9/10

We were shown around the house and given directions to the best bakery for the morning. The garden and house are very well equipped, making it easy to just relax and enjoy the holiday. We made full use of the garden, many areas to sit and read or talk. As a family of four adults it was great to have the table tennis table and boules, with many tournaments throughout our stay. The weather was very wet and quite cool so we did not use the pool much. We visited Bordeaux a few times including watching a game of rugby and doing some shopping. We also had lunch and explored in Libourne and St Emilion. The rest of the time we read and played indoor games in the peace and quiet of the countryside - Bliss! Thank you to Greg and Manuela for a fantastic holiday (not forgetting the very friendly cats!)
