The Gite is your space and the garden, terrace and pool are for your use only.
You have your own parking.
We are located in the heart of the Blaye, Cote de Bordeaux wine district, part of the Gironde. The Gite is probably around 200 years old, and has original beams and some exposed stone walls.
Our Gite has three ensuite bedrooms and a double height main room with two sofas and dining area. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and cooker. There is also a coffee machine, microwave and toaster. There is heating in all rooms if required. Bedding and towels are provided, plus a welcome pack.
We are in easy driving distance (30-40mins) of Bordeaux, St Emillion, and the beautiful Gironde. The open sea is a little further-1hr 15mins to Royan, and similar to Arcachon and Lacanau.
We are available for any requests, and are very happy to give recommendations for restaurants and attractions. We can also arrange wine tastings and possibly chateau visits depending on time of year, (not easy when harvesting for instance).
The property is surrounded by vines. Our nearest Chateau is 200m away and within 2km there are over a dozen vineyards. The geography of the area is vineyards and forests, so plenty of wildlife and good cycling lanes and paths.
We are only 5km from the Route National to Bordeaux and north to Poitiers. Bordeaux airport is 50km away, 45minutes (except in rush hour). A train service to Bordeaux centre is accessible at St Yzan, 4km away. A good way of visiting Bordeaux is the tram service, nearest park and ride 30km, (25 mins then 20mins on tram), this is very good value.
A car is a necessity as we are 2km from our nearest village, (Saint-Mariens), and 3km from the nearest supermarket and baker.
The pool is only available from late May to the end of October, but is not heated.
We provide a welcome pack, (included in price), which contains some basics , ( wine, coffee, milk etc) and other essentials.
We don't charge for cleaning but expect the property to be left as you found it, otherwise there will be a cleaning fee of 80 euros.
