The property is a dream property and the owners have obviously put a lot of thought, planning and love into their restoration of this venerable farmhouse. They saved the 19th century character of the farmhouse and made it luxurious by 21st century standards. The kitchen served us so well and the summer house in the back was a perfect place for an early evening barbecue dinner, chandelier and all. We spent hours in the back yard with a glass of wine and snacks from the local markets in a second wonderful outdoor patio setting. The pictures on the listing are all spot on. The house is so well equipped and wants for nothing to prepare wonderful meals or simply enjoy the fabulous local wines with equally wonderful charcuterie on the patio. The location is superior allowing easy access by rental car to the city of Bordeaux, the Medoc, and of course the fascinating village of St. Emilion. With a rental car it was an easy day trip drive also to the fascinating prehistoric cave paintings of Lascaux. So much to do and so little time... but we spent as much time as we could in this house because it is spacious, has all the creature comforts one could possibly need and is, in a word... comfortable. We had 6 people there at once but it could easily comfortably accommodate 8-10 guests. Sonia was available for any questions and provided great written information on the local area to optimize our time. For those who have the time and/or the need, the wi-fi is very good as well. Frankly we had too much else to do so didn't spend much time on devices. We had good friends who referred us to this property and we intend to do the same with others. Try it and you will love it!!

We are so lucky to have discovered such an outstandingly stylish home in which to spend a relaxing holiday enjoying the stunning setting from the beautifully appointed terrace and infinity pool overlooking vineyards. From the first contact Nora, Peter and Kristal were friendly, courteous and welcoming full of great ideas and suggestions for exploring the area including atmospheric local markets, fabulous wines and superb restaurant recommendations which combined with a very warm welcome and introduction to their gorgeous property full of stylish details where everything you could possibly need for a 5star stay is provided. This meant we could simply unpack, relax and enjoy their gift of a chilled bottle of champagne on the terrace to begin our holiday knowing they were on hand should we need any other guidance or recommendations during our time here. The memories of our stay here will remain with our family always and our two daughters aged 18 and 20 particularly enjoyed their own en suite bathrooms and TVs for some down time after taking full advantage of the pool and stylish sun loungers. The highlight of their holiday however was getting to know Kiwi and Lily the family's lovely dogs and we had to check they weren't smuggled into the car for our very reluctant journey home! We would love to return to this wonderful home next year as we have ordered some fabulous wine from this years harvest in St Emilion - an amazing and beautiful area to visit- so a great excuse to come over and collect it! Thank you for allowing us to share your slice of paradise - A bientot. Mike Sue Georgia and Lucy Harrogate
