Fantastic, beautiful and very relaxing
Had a lovely experience, the pool was the kids favourite activity, the villa was just perfect it had everything you needed for the weeks stay we had. I Highly recommend this villa.
Spacious comfortable rusric farm in the vineyards
An elegant modern and rusric farm in the vineyards
We would definitely return!
Had a fabulous 10 days at Chateau D'Arcole. The house is wonderful, comfortable & modern with all the amenities you could need during your holiday. The location is peaceful with no-one overlooking you but you are just a short drive from St Emillion (& the train station). We ate out most nights - there is an excellent restaurant in Branne; the kids enjoyed cycling and the bikes were delivered to the Gite; they loved the pool & also went swimming at the Lake in Libourne.
I could not recommend this this property highly enough. We returned home so very relaxed, it was just the holiday we needed and a the Chateau D'Arcole Grand Cru helped.
Thank you Philippe for a wonderful holiday
Beautiful villa in the middle of the vineyards; very close to Saint Emilion
Philippe's villa exceeded our expectations. It was extremely well located, close to Saint Emilion (20mn bike ride) but still very private and secluded. The property itself was in a beautiful setting right in the middle of the vineyards, with a huge terrace ideal for big meals on the outdoor table. Inside, the home had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay - 3 large rooms, 2 bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen.
Lovely house, fantastic stay
Thank you for the great hospitality, Philippe, our family enjoyed the stay throughout!
Philippe met us and showed us around the house, and welcomed us with a bottle of his grand cru.
The house is near St. Emilion, and very accessible to the nearest supermarket at Branne and Bordeaux. We wake up to the view of the vineyard of Chateau D'Arcole. The surroundings were quiet and serene.
The house has a very well equipped kitchen. It also has a Chateau D'Arcole chopping board, which we were given as a parting gift!
The kids love their PS2. The layout of the rooms is very good, where my parents stayed on the ground floor and our kids and us occupy the second floor.
Thank you for the great hospitality and wine! We bring back great memories of the visit, the wine and of course, we brought back a grand cru to enjoy. We will be back!
A very nice and positive family
Superb Location and Cottage
Philippe was an excellent host, very attentive to our needs. He provided an informative tour of the winery and its associated history. The location is excellent, with stunning views of the surrounding vineyards and St. Emilion, only a few kilometers away. The land is flat and ideal for jogging/walking on the scenic and seldomly used roads that wind through the vineyards.
The historical lodgings are attractive, spacious and well equipped, having been recently, completely, skillfully and very tastefully renovated with a large modern kitchen including a table that can easily sit 8 people, a spacious and comfortable living room and bedroom on the main floor with separate shower/sink (including laundry facilities) and toilet rooms. The second floor has two bedrooms, one which is very large and well equipped to accommodate and entertain children and another spacious bedroom, toilet room and separate master shower/sink.
The deck is large (at least 1,200 square feet) and also well equipped including dining table and above ground pool for dipping.
The property is well located with local access to St. Emilion (a UNESCO site but very touristy), the small town of Branne with several very good restaurants and grocery and fresh fish stores. Not far away is the larger town of Libourne with excellent restaurants and larger stores. Nearby Créon also has an excellent street market and bicycle path (as well as rental) that leads to Bordeaux to the west and a more rural setting to the east. We bicycled east on the bike path and had an excellent day, with superb scenery (shaded by the bordering trees/shrubbery on a hot, sunny day, and a superb lunch in a local restaurant in one of the towns near the path).
Nearby to the west, is Bordeau and the coast with beautiful sandy beaches and to the east, more hilly terrain, with sites like the town built on a cliff (Rocamadour) and the close by Gouffre de Padirac, an amazing underground cave that goes on for miles with a waterway navigable in a gondola like boat.
We truly enjoyed our sejour here and highly recommend it, for the hospitality, wine (the Chateau Arcole Grand Cru is excellent), lodgings and surrounding countryside.
