A LOVELY PROPERTY

5 of 5
WE ENJOYED OUR FEW DAYS AT THE PROPERTY. IT WAS IN A BEAUTIFUL CONDITION. 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.

Everything we had hoped for

5 of 5
We were two families with 3 kids each all under 14 and this house was perfect for us. As a group of ten we could ate outdoors nearly every night in the summer house - we drank wine while the kids battled it out for table tennis champ. Plenty of loungers and a lovely warm pool during the day meant that we didn't venture out much. We did go on a couple of walks across the fields and through the forest and in to the village close by for bread and a coffee every morning. The town of St Foy is lovely and the huge market on Saturday morning was great fun. Kids and adults like had a great time, adults especially enjoying long lie ins as a result of the shutters! Lovely.

Good property for summer, helpful owner

4 of 5
The cottage is as described, well-equipped and came with several electric heaters as we went off-season and these really warmed the place up. If you stroll to the river you can get a nice view of the sunset. This place would be really lovely in summer, when you can use the pool and BBQ and kids can play in the grounds. You need a car to get anywhere; we did bring bikes but bear in mind you're on the river so at the lowest point and we didn't do enough research into nice cycle routes once at the main road! The owner sent us a helpful google map with some places marked and we had great days out in Bordeaux and St Emilion. We also found a great restaurant (Restaurant L'escapade) for lunch and the local shop was great for breakfast.
