About Frédérique Quelennec et Philippe Soulat

Nature lovers, in 2010 we bought this 4 hectare with 4 buildings in the middle of vineyards, we chose it because of its view of the hills and because of its proximity to the town (800 m) where we can find all we need. First of all, we have renovated the gite to come and live in it. The warehouse was completely renovated and transformed into a house; now we rent this gite so that travellers can come and discover this magnificent region.

Horse owners are welcome, and if you enjoy horseback riding the area between the Entre-Deux-Mers is perfect with its slopes marked by vineyards...the garden has no fence, and it is surrounded by forests, clearings and creeks that will provide a pleasant stay for you and your horses.

Why Frédérique Quelennec et Philippe Soulat chose Cadillac

This central location allows you to discover the magnificent city of Bordeaux (30 minutes away); you will also have the chance to sample the best crus of Saint Émilion, town located 38 km away.

The Malagar Castle is 10 km away, it is very well preserved and it is where the writer François Mauriac wrote his most important works.

If you are here with your family you can go on a bike ride on the cycle path all the way to the ocean.

What makes this cottage unique

This house is in the heart of Entre-Deux-Mers and it has a panoramic view of the typical slopes of this region...It is located 1/2 hour away from Bordeaux by car, and from Saint Émilion, the Arcachon Bay is at 1 hour distance, and here you can stay and discover the surrounding area, you can also visit the local producers' wine cellars.

Our home is located a few metres away from the gite, so if you would like to, we can answer your questions and recommend you the places that you should not miss, for instance, the local markets and celebrations carried out by the locals and that are very popular in the region.

Peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

The Gite was spacious and clean. In our party we had 4 adults and 2 young children and we had plenty of room. The seating inside was good and comfortable as were the bedrooms.

Frederique was helpful and her English is good. It is a good relaxing place and there are plenty of nice villages to visit. You could walk into Cadillac and if you go in by car there is plenty of free parking near to the centre. It had a small supermarket and all the usual shops you require. A visit to the chateau in Cadallac is recommended.

It was very hot whilst we were there and we could have done with more shade on the patio.

Owner's Response: Je remercie ces vacanciers pour leur appréciation; effectivement il a fait très chaud cette semaine et nous avons regretté le manque d'ombre. Afin de pallier à cet inconvénient, il a été posé une toile d'ombrage sur la terrasse ( photo sur le site).

Gîte, propriétaire et environnement au top

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour formidable. Les propriétaires sont très prévenant sans jamais être envahissant et toujours de bon conseil. Le gite est formidable: tout confort, propre, lumineux...avec vu sur les près, les vignes et les chevaux. Le lieu est très calme et reposant sans être trop éloigné des commerces. Nous le recommandons très vivement et espérons pouvoir y retourner très bientôt.

Nous avons passés un très bon séjour dans cette magnifique maison dans les vignes et au milieu des chevaux. Un endroit très calme et a proximité de plein d'activité.

Les propriétaires ont été très agréable et au petit soin pour que l'on passe de bonnes vacances.

La maison est très propre, fonctionnelle et moderne.

Nous recommandons cette maison.

Mooie woning, rustig gelegen en veel privacy

  • 5 of 5

Het is een mooie woning met 3 slaapkamers, grote woonkamer en een lekkere douche. We werden zeer gastvrij onthaalt door de eigenaresse. Ze sprak zowel Frans als Engels dus communiceren was geen probleem. Het huis kijkt uit over een weiland en heeft een grote tuin waarin een aantal ligstoelen staan om te kunnen zonnen. Het huis ligt aan een doodlopende weg. De eigenaren wonen zelf op het andere stuk maar De tuinen zijn gescheiden van elkaar.Het centrum van het dorp is goed aan te lopen en duurt ongeveer 20 minuten. Zeker een aanrader voor mensen die rust en ruimte zoeken.

Very nice and quiet place

  • 5 of 5

The place is nice and quiet. Owners are very friendly people that did their best to make your stay pleasant. The house was bigger than we expected and very clean. Our children loved to play with the 2 dogs, that was a real success. The area is nice, in Cadillac there are excellent wine producers. Saint Emilion is a nice place to visit. The coast with sand beach is quite far away with busy traffic.

The gite is located 800 m away from the town named Cadillac, where you can visit the castle that belonged to the Duke of Épernon, or you can take a stroll around its ancient covered markets. You can also go to the Garonne's edge and enjoy the local restaurants.

Finally, Laromet Lake is located at 1 km distance, here you can go tree climbing and you can also enjoy a 'guinguette' style restaurant that is worth the detour.
