Our cottage ( Rose ) was really clean and as described , it was everything you could need and more . The private garden was a really nice feature and only a few steps away from the pool. Lots of really good recommendations of places to go , things to see and places to eat ( not that we did as it was too nice to go out ) The owners Andy & Richard we're welcoming hosts and I would definitely recommend it to friends. The afternoon treats were delicious and a perfect location to visit the wine regions .

Rose Cottage, accessed via the steps by the pool, is a petite, yet surprisingly spacious, gite for 2. Everything you need is there, the welcome pack provided essentials for the first day and we also had a wonderfully prepared 3 course dinner which Richard had cooked for us ... just superb! A little extra treat in the form of lemon madelines were hugely appreciated after our long drive! The outside terrace, overlooking the pool, was just delightful. Many hours were spent sitting on there watching the glorious honey buzzards soaring overhead. Pool is just perfect for a cooling dip, not huge but big enough to do a bit of swimming, although lounging on the inflatable was much preferred to boost the tan! Andrew was the perfect host, ever on hand (but not at all intrusive) to assist and often delivering gifts of food from Richard ... yum! In the second week of our stay he organised a wine tour during which we were taken to 3 different locations, all producing wine in different ways, which was fascinating, and incredibly informative. Met some truly unique characters on this trip! The wine tour was broken up at lunchtime by a visit to a local workers' restaurant. Not much to look at but WOW ... food to die for! During our day out, Richard kindly looked after our pooch, which were singing grateful of as it meant that we could both enjoy the day. Just fabulous... definitely planning to go back in the future.

Marjolyn was very knowledgable and extremely helpful in arranging our trip - and it was quite a challenge to appease 8 ladies (and an infant), but Marjolyn did it with calm & ease. She looked after our airport transfers, made sure there was always enough food and wine at the house, made reservations for us at (excellent) local restaurants, and even arranged some activities such as a tour of Bordeaux, a visit to a local vineyard, and a wine course (highly recommend)! The house itself is gorgeous. All the bathrooms have been recently updated, there was plenty of space for all of us girls (the baby's room being far enough away that she wasn't disturbed by our late nights, but close enough for the video monitor to work), and the views outside gave us the tranquility we needed away from our city lives. The only point I would warn others on is that it is a decent drive away from the town of St Emilion and from Bordeaux, so if you're planning on enjoying the wine, you will need to arrange for transport. But if it's the countryside you're after with lovely views of vines (and plenty of space for wines at home) then it is perfect. And I'm sure Marjolyn will help you to arrange transport for a few nights out :) All in all, we had a fabulous stay in Bordeaux and it was in no small part due to Marjolyn's excellent hospitality. I highly recommend a stay at her cottage and we hope we'll be back in the future!
