Wonderful family property with great views and pool

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa. The villa is in a town, so we felt closely connected but was quiet and with fantastic views over the countryside. There was music and food in the square each Friday and a cycle race. Wonderful pool, great for young families.

Great property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our three children, 6, 4, and 2 and it was perfect. It was very easy to find and had everything we needed, from kitchen equipment to pool toys for the kids. A beautiful pool and house with lovely rooms, perhaps the only slight issue was the living room not having enough sofas to all lounge on the odd wet day but didn't particularly bother us! The village was great with bakery, shop and restaurant and we would thoroughly recommend the night market on a Friday for eating out and generally soaking up the atmosphere. The lake nearby is also excellent - fantastic facilities and can easily spend a whole day there with the play parks and cafe for food. Also worth noting, if like us touring the various wine chateau's wasn't feasible with all the kids in tow, there's a great wine shop just outside the village with various local and Boudreaux wines that can all be tasted too! Ludovic was great, kept in touch before the holiday and called the first night and last night to make sure everything was as it should be which was perfect. Really couldn't find fault with any part of it - we had a very enjoyable two weeks and only wished it could have lasted longer!

Great house, great place, great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Charming house, exactly as the pictures and description suggest.

The house was clean and well equipped and there was plenty of room for the 6 of us ranging in age from 14 to 81 years old.

The village, although small but has 2 local shops, a friendly bar/restaurant and comes alive on a Friday night.

The nearby lake has a small beach/swimming area, playground for children and kayaks to rent - all free!

Thanks for a great holiday.

Calm, relaxing and Superb family home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at your house, very special. With the fete we timed our visit well as this was good to watch and obtain many pictures.

We made a couple of trips into Saint Emilion where we met Jean luc Thunevan and purchased some of his famous bad boy wine.

The farmers market, as you suggested, in Foy le Grande was also very good and interesting and a little purchase of Macaroons from their kept the kids happy.

The area is good to cycle and my morning run down and around the lake set up the day well. Just had to purchase a table tennis table when back in the UK, forgot how competitive that can get!

We would certainly love to visit the area and my wife fell in love with the house.

Our trip back via Bilbao was a little uncomfortable as the bay of Biscay was true to its reputation.

Spacious, well presented and charming

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed here for a week - 4 adults and a 4 year old. The house was roomy and uncluttered so we felt we had plenty of space. There were lots of books and toys for our 4 year old granddaughter and a great ping pong table for the adults. The pool was just lovely and having enjoyed lovely weather for most of our week, we spent a lot of time in there or enjoying meals on the terrace. The pool is fenced in and also has an alarm. There are spectacular views from the room at the top of the house. We dined twice at the village restaurant L'un des Sens and it was very good but not cheap. Lovely for a treat. The village is very quiet so a car is essential for getting out and about e.g. Bergerac, St Emilion. All in all we had a lovely holiday.
