Fabulous property and owner, great location, highly recommend for a chilled, relaxing holiday.

5 of 5
Due to a faulty plane we were around three hours late arriving so the shops were closed. This was not a problem however as I sent a text to the owner, Maurice, to inform him we were held up and he very kindly did a shop for us and stocked up with milk, bread, ham, croissants, tomatoes, fruit, eggs, beer and wine so our holiday could truly begin on arrival. The property has everything you need and more for a home-from-home getaway. It is very clean, the beds are extremely comfortable and the outside areas don't disappoint either. The pool is lovely and the added bonus of the summer kitchen, complete with kettle, fridge, BBQ, cutlery and crockery means you can kick back and stay there all day without having to go into the house - fabulous! Maurice, the owner, is an absolute star - nothing is too much trouble. He is respectful of your privacy and extremely helpful if you need anything. We asked about rail travel to Bordeaux and he went to the local railway station for us and found out all the details - prices, times etc. We were invited to his home one evening where he cooked a fabulous meal of roast lamb and we laughed and chatted with him until late into the night. A wonderful host who genuinely loves what he does and cares that his guests have the best time on their holidays. We could not fault this property, the owner or the location and if you are looking for a complete chill-out then this is the holiday for you.

Style in a stunning location

5 of 5
Every bit as impressive as the photos and more! The views of the river from the bedrooms were wonderful and from the infinity pool even better. We in Les Tabacs and the extra living space more than made up for the short walk round to the riverside deck; the styling touches were just enough to make it special without becoming kitsch. Everything was clean and well-maintained and well-equipped. Our hosts, John and Chrissie, could not have been more welcoming and full of helpful knowledge and tips to make the most of enjoying the area. The local supermarket was a pleasant few minutes walk away along the riverside and stocked everything we needed so self-catering could not have been easier. Beyond Clairac, we explored several of the bastide villages and a trip to Chateau Bonaguil was a real hit with our teenage daughters ("It's Narnia!"). Only the pleasure of lazing in and by the pool prevented us from enjoying more of what the area had to offer. Overall, the best two weeks of holiday we have had in years.
