About Julie Sabin

Julie & Eddie your hosts at Les Casaniers Holiday gites.

They have lots of experience in hospitality and will ensure that you have the best holiday experience while staying at La Grange or La Petite Maison.

Julie Sabin purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why Julie Sabin chose Saint-Estèphe

We chose this location because it offered us the best features of rural France, peace and tranquillity, but it was still very near, amenities such as supermarkets and other commercial outlets. So for us its the best of both worlds

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are in a beautiful place, a peaceful little hamlet, but near a village with bar and bakery. Plus we have the Grand Etang de St Estephe within 2 km of us, with its beach, boardwalk, picnic area and cabins selling drinks and snacks.

This is the best of rural France and our guests love the area.

Fantastic, spacious, a pleasure to stay there

  • 5 of 5

What a really fantastic place! Doreen and Tony are great hosts, so helpful and attentive. We were 3 couples and 2 singles and had the greatest time. The swimming pools were glorious. and the well stocked living areas spacious and very comfortable. The market in Piegut and Brantome are a joy to visit. Quiet peaceful area with a beautiful lake with boating/swimming 15 minutes walk away. Spotlessly clean, spacious bedrooms. Boules, archery, fenced in paddock a delight from the day we moved in. Would recommend it to anyone and we're definitely going back next year-Thank you Doreen and Tony

Lovely, rural property

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse is situated in attractive, green, rolling countryside. The ground floor rooms are very spacious, although a little dark, as would be expected for a building of its age. The bedrooms were all spacious and comfortable. The views from the garden (at the front of the property) are lovely.

The house was very clean, and we received a warm welcome from the owners, Doreen & Tony. They offered to look after our dog, which they did for a good few hours when we went on a trip. We also tried our hand at archery with Tony, which was interesting.

The garden is well fenced for the dog, with the pool in its own enclosed area. In addition, the paddock was well set up with facilities for various games, space for the dogs to play and for archery.

In the immediate area there are pleasant walks, pretty villages, and good shopping facilities for food.

Overall, it was a very relaxing place to stay, and I would recommend it.

Our holiday at La Grange was great.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and well equipped.Our hosts Doreen and Tony were very helpful and friendly,we had a lovely welcome which included wine,milk,butter,lovely french bread and a delicious pot of Doreen's homemade jam,tea and coffee all of which is a tremendous help when you arrive because it gives you time to do a grocery shop at your leisure.They helped us by booking restaurants and places of interest which can be a bit difficult if you are not french speaking! We recommend Restaurant L Auberge de Merigaud both for the restaurant and the pizza's all made by the lovely french lady owner who cooks it all herself. Also La Charrue owned by a british couple where you can get a good steak and chips british style, with some entertainment thrown in on the right night! It's also a nice place to take a caravan etc on there site swimming pool included,well kept and the folk are very friendly and welcoming.The local lake is beautiful and very close.There are beautiful lakes in front of the property which you can enjoy from the balcony,and there are many more locally which you can fish in.The markets were good especially at Brantome where you can enjoy a lovey boat ride up the river.We also enjoyed very much time spent with Tony playing boules and having a go at the archery.Can't praise Doreen and Tony enough,wonderful hosts,the best yet! We wish them all the very best for the future. From Sheila,Chris,Wendy and Amy.(Cardiff.S.Wales). Still playing boules,still can't beat Wendy and Amy!!!

Excellent place perfect for the kids

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 great weeks in La Petite Maison with 4 adults and 3 children. The grounds are perfect for the children the swimming pool excellent and the house delightful. It was plenty big enough for all of us and great for separating the families as needed.

The area is great with the swimming lake and bar close and bigger towns a small drive away. Our boys adored the swimming pool and the bikes so we spent a lot of time doing those!

We would definitely recommend the place and would seriously consider going back. Oh and a big thank you to Tony for his Archery lessons!

Great relaxing holiday for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families, 8 people from 13 years to ?? We spent 2 weeks in the gite and it was a wonderful relaxing holiday. The gite is situated in a very quiet and beautiful place, spacious and well equipped for a group of people like us, both inside and outside. The house is well maintained and and everything is very clean.

The holiday was mostly spent relaxing at the pool, enjoying the fantastic french food, walks in the area and swimming in the lake in St. Estephe.

The owners were very helpful with everything at any time. They suggested good places to eat, arranged horseriding, gave lessons in Achery, took one of us to the doctor and they even fixed my husbond shoe :-) They are so nice and discreet and really made us feel comfortable.

We can really recommend the place.

La Grange

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that the choice of La Grange was not all chance. We were a group of 9 long-standing friends, the ladies having worked together in the dim and distant past (the late 50s/early 60s) but nevertheless the choice of our friends living nearby could not have been better for us. Doreen and Tony swiftly joined in the reunion and were extremely helpful - Doreen's jam is legendary and the welcome pack was just that - welcome! A lovely, comfortable house in beautiful surroundings overlooking the lovely lakes, with an exclusive pool - what could be nicer? The surrounding area is lovely and do get Doreen to recommend auberges for meals. We have been to the area before but there is always something new to see and do. We had very hot weather at the start (40degrees plus) so the pool was a godsend and also the barbecue. The premises were very clean and welcoming and we fitted 12 around the table with no problems. Thank you, Doreen and Tony, for having the foresight to buy such a lovely place and to our local friend Maggie for putting it our way.
