Amazing Place to Stay; Lovely Hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 5 year old son, 2 year old daughter have been traveling through Europe for over 9 months and we recently stayed at La Tour Carrée for six nights and it is BY FAR one of our favorite places we have stayed in Europe. Eric and Crystal were amazing hosts and the property is stunning. We do not have enough nice things to say about our hosts, the beautiful grounds, and the Tour Carree is extremely large, very well put together, and is just lovely.

The location is perfect as it is 15 minutes outside of Bourdeaux central and is right in the center of various tourist attractions.

Anybody visiting Bordeaux should definitely stay here as it was an excellent place to stay and was a very good value.

vacances au calme

  • 5 of 5

Bien situé, très proche de Bordeaux et en pleine nature. Le gîte est confortable (grandes pièces), bien équipé. Les propriétaires sont accueillants mais pas envahissants. Très bon rapport qualité prix. Idéal pour les familles avec des enfants et pour les amateurs de grands crus. Très belle propriété avec du charme et du caractère.

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Gîte plein de charme, très agréable dans un bel environnement.

Nous avons passé une semaine de repos et de ballades dans ce gîte bien situé pour profiter de la région. Bordeaux (très belle ville) est à 20 min seulement, Blaye accessible par le bac, la route des vins bien sûr, et la mer que ce soit Soulac/mer ou la dune du Pyla à un peu plus d'une heure.

Les propriétaires, accueillants, sont a proximité mais nous disposons de notre intimité. La literie est très bonne.

Une pause à la campagne

  • 5 of 5

Très belle propriété. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour en famille. Le gîte est aménagé avec goût, fonctionnel, bien équipé et très bien situé (campagne et bord de Garonne tout en étant à quelques km du centre de bordeaux et des grands sites du Medoc).

Merci à Chrystel, Eric, (et Auguste!) pour leur accueil et leur gentillesse.

Barbara.

Un angolo di paradiso

  • 5 of 5

Le promesse implicite nelle immagini pubblicate sono favorevolmente superate dalla realta' dei luoghi.

La posizione, ai bordi dell'estuario, sullo Chemin du Bord de l'eau, e' tra le piu' belle viste nei nostri 15 giorni di girovagare nel marais; Bordeaux e' vicinissima, anche facilmente visto che non c'e' bisogno di prendere la trafficata périferique, l'oceano e' vicino altrettanto, sia verso Lacanau che Arcachon, la riva destra raggiungibilissima con il traghetto a Lamarque.

Notevoli ristoranti nei pressi (la guinguette Les Bords de Garonne e molto chic e ricercato La Gare Gourmande).

Quanto alla gite, elegante nel gusto e tranquillissima, con un giardino fiorito ed accogliente come i proprietari (la signora parla un ottimo italiano..)

Raccomandabile in ogni senso.

Très sympa!!

  • 5 of 5

Gîte très original dans une petite maison en pierre mais avec tout le confort.

Les propriétaires sont sympa et très discrets. Lieu de départ idéal pour des ballade le long de la Gironde, ou pour découvrir Bordeaux et le vignoble des plus grands crus.
