Lovely and cosy gite!

  • 4 of 5

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom gite was small, but beautifully furnished and immaculate. The kitchen was equipped with all modern appliances and conveniences we needed, so it was easy to cook any meal on the premises. Owners were very hospitable and helpful in showing us around the gite. We really appreciated the fresh eggs from the chickens that roam the property. Only downside was tempermental wifi---very spotty. Otherwise, an extremely enjoyable stay.Thanks so much!

Quiet and calm

  • 4 of 5

A very stylish and beautifully restored property, but not the large house shown on the publicity (this is the owner's), rather a much smaller one on the side. It was rather cramped downstairs as we had poor weather and were obliged to eat and relax indoors (e.g. only comfortable seating for 2) If the weather is good, it would be fine, having a table and chairs for 4 and 4 reclining chairs in the large grounds. The owners were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The property is very well equipped, though we would expect to be given more toilet rolls, bigger bath towels, and a thinner choice of bedcover (it was quite warm at night) as well as the duvets. It has very easy access to the motorway system, transport into Bordeaux, supermarkets and restaurants, while being in a very quiet area. It would benefit from a patio area in front of the property (no doubt this will be done in time) as the rainy weather we experienced made the grass wet and a bit muddy under the outside table.
