We stayed at this beautiful old water mill for a week in September 2018.
The gite itself has been renovated to a very high standard and had everything we needed for our stay. The pool is in a beautiful garden setting and we had it to ourselves the whole week.
There is your own garden next to the gite overlooking the stream and we spent every evening sitting watching the sun go down.
It's location is perfect for exploring the area and we visited both Bordeaux and St Emillion.
We would highly recommend this gite.
Right from the moment we booked , we were provided with the most comprehensive information we have ever received from a rental property.
Carolyn and Steve were most welcoming and were always available when you wanted them and not when you didn't !! Although the gite attaches to their own property , we went for 3 days without seeing them at all !!
The gite is beautifully finished and all the basic essentials are provided. We recommend a trip to a chateau vineyard and once again , Steve organised this for us before we arrived. After the trip , a visit to St Emilion is a must - beautiful hill town with lovely restaurants and many tastings available
Also provided in the gite was a wine rack of various local wines with descriptions and you can chose what takes your fancy and leave the money.
Swimming pool is also lovely and you have sole use when required.
Lots of good local restaurants nearby and big supermarkets not too far away.
We did a trip to Bordeaux one day and went by train from a local station (about €30 for a return trip for both of us) BIG TIP - when you arrive in Bordeaux catch the tram to the centre €1.70 each , otherwise it's a long walk through not the best of surroundings!
To sum up , fantastic hosts , beautiful gite , lovely surroundings and so much to do and see or just relax and totally unwind.
We hope to go back and you can't get a better recommendation than that !
Thank you Carolyn and Steve - you're the best !
