We have just returned from a very relaxing stay at this property in Sablons. Although the gite is in the grounds of the owner’s own house, we had our own space and privacy. We made the most of the pool and games, like ping pong and pétanque, that were available. The gite itself is decorated and furnished to a very high standard, with much thought gone into the small details. There are two bedrooms upstairs and a sofa bed in the lounge area. The owners Greg and Manuela are very welcoming, friendly and hospitable, and although the pool is shared with them, they made sure we had priority and only used it when we were not around. You will need a car, as it is a very rural location, but shops and supermarkets are only a short drive away, and it is a great location to explore Bordeaux and the surrounding wine region. We bought some red wine from Chateau Haute-Goujon, a 20 minute drive away, and it is absolutely delicious!
We had such an amazing time. As a couple with 2 kids (6 and 10) this was the perfect place with a huge domain and forrest for them to run around in as well as a big private swimming pool.
You’ve got everything you need around such as a grocery store in Genissac, a few markets and with a car the ocean is reachable in an hour, Saint Emilion in 20 minutes, canoeing in 30 minutes, etc
The host, Marie-George and Philippe were delightful. Always happy to help but very discreet. They work very hard to ensure the house and its surroundings are always maintained to the highest standards.
