Les Cyprès is part of a converted stone farmhouse, set in a tranquil location, at the end of a private drive just a few miles outside the village of Pellegrue. It is an ideal base for couples and families on holiday.
The property is situated in the Entre-deux-Mers region, which is part of the Bordeaux wine producing area. The accomodation has wonderful views overlooking vines, fields and woodland. The large enclosed garden is maintained to a high standard. Though peaceful, Pellegrue and other local villages are within easy reach, each providing shops, supermarkets, boulangeries, banks and traditional weekly markets.
Every care has been taken to retain the character and original features of the house and each room is tastefully decorated and furnished, providing everything for a comfortable and relaxing stay.
