A beautiful historic villa that faces south towards the Dordogne River, called "Domaine de la Croix de St Michel". Built of Bordeaux stone in the 18th century, the Domaine has been lovingly restored recently. The main house has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living rooms and two kitchens. The seventh bedroom is in the pretty eighteenth century pigeonnier. There is a sunny pool, almost two acres of lawns leading down to the neighbour's vineyard, and an old stone barn in which the Domaine's wine used to be made, and which now offers table tennis and table football.
The Domaine is on the outskirts of Bourg, a pretty riverside village set amongst vineyards with restaurants, shops and an excellent supermarket. The mediaeval city of Bordeaux is 15 miles to the south. St Emilion, a UNESCO World Heritage site, with ancient streets and Romanesque churches, is 45 minutes away. Bordeaux airport can be reached in 35 minutes.
