                                                                                                      4 of 5

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.

We stayed in late June early July with a large group of friends which the property is ideal for. The overall property and its surrounding is stunning with a view looking out on to fields. Its a perfect place to spend some time relaxing- particularly in the hot tub! The property was beautifully clean and tidy. The owners are extremely friendly, they were very helpful and met us at the house with a warm welcome. The whole stay was perfect and we will definitely be back to stay very soon!

Where to start? We were 3 families with 7 children between us ranging from 3 months to 16. The children absolutely loved it (which made our holiday so much more relaxing) - I happily spent much of the week lounging on the terrace whilst the kids exhausted themselves. Whilst we had planned to do lots of days out, everyone just wanted to stay at the villa, which made life very easy and low cost!! The fact that we didn't have to pack all the usual stuff for the baby made such a difference, too (the place even had blackout blinds)! Oh, forgot to mention the spa. AMAZING. This has a jacuzzi plus a hydro spa - it's basically like an enormous hot tub/mini swimming pool with jets and it lights up! Best bit was the kids weren't allowed in, so was a real escape. The outdoor pool was definitely a hit with everyone. It was really important to us that it was fenced, or I'd have spent the whole holiday worrying about the little ones falling in. It's great, though, that you can see the pool from the terrace. The pool was heated which I loved (such a coward normally getting in)! So, to sum up, would we recommend it? Yes, wholeheartedly - we're already trying to sort out dates to go back.
