A Welcoming Winery

5 of 5
My wife and I spent three days at Clos Vieux Rochers and we could not have been happier with our choice. The property itself is peacefully situated on a quiet road in a beautiful area, close to St Emilion and other attractions yet away from it all. Owners Steve and Rob have clearly put a lot of heart (and sweat I'm sure) into the property. The cottage we stayed in was clean and comfortable with a tasteful decor and included everything one could ask of a self-catering unit. One of the highlights of our visit to the area was the the tour of the Clos Vieux Rochers Winery itself. The owners are passionate about making wine and seem to genuinely enjoy sharing the process with others. Whether it was answering my wife's questions about the finer points of wine making or explaining to me why a Bordeaux is a Bordeaux, Steve treated all our questions as equally important. We appreciated his sincere and genuine approach. If you choose to stay at Clos Vieux Rochers, you won't be disappointed. It's a charming place. Well done gentleman. Thanks again, Scott and Betty

Fabulous place - even better than our first visit!

This is our second visit to this farmhouse. Our first visit was back in 2012 and in the five years between visits Tracy and Brian have continued to make enhancements to the property (particularly outside). The property is spacious and clean and has all the equipment you could possibly want. The property is well equipped with families and children in mind. Our party of 12 had 4 young children between the ages of 10 months and 6 years old and there was plenty to keep them occupied and in a safe environment (The pool is fenced and alarmed and the gardens are all fenced off). The local village is small and quiet with a local restaurant which has just reopened and was beautiful. We ate there on a couple of occasions. Tracy phoned and made reservations for us when all the party wanted to go together. Just a short drive away Lac de Gurson has received a huge investment and offers free canoeing, use of the beach, walks and a really nice children's play area. Tracy and Brian are lovely hosts, are available should you need them whilst letting you get on and enjoy your holiday in peace. We certainly hope to return for a third time soon!
