Wonderful week!

5 of 5
The house was beautiful and we were made to feel very welcome. We were really lucky with the weather and so made full use of the outdoor dining. The information provided by Sonia was very helpful and we made full use of the local boulangerie each morning for breakfast pastries.

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Gite Aimeluc. The property was very clean and stocked with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Christine and Manolo had great suggestions such as the Sunday market at Libourne and how to get to the Park and Ride Station at Bordeaux. As well, they showed great hospitality to us, including introducing us to their wine cave and family. Thoroughly recommended!
