Very quiet comfortable place to stay, well located to visit St Emilion and Bordeaux

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!
