Set in rolling vineyards with views of the valleys and woods from the magnificent pool terrace, Château Picoron Pavillon is a truly special place to stay. With both the Dordogne river and the idyllic town of Saint-Émilion just minutes away, this elegant holiday home is in the perfect spot for those who love wine, nature and pretty villages or simply just relaxing in stunning surroundings. The 'pavillon' is the summer residence of the château which, has been exquisitely styled with contemporary features and contrasting classic furnishings, all of the highest standard. One of the best features of the house has to be the light and airy living space with wide open doors opening out to the south-facing pool terrace with amazing views. The open-air kitchen-diner is modern in style with only the best brands used such as Gaggeneau, Liebherr and Miele, whilst the fine living area allows you to enjoy the glorious vistas in comfort. Four beautiful bedrooms and three immaculate bathrooms make this a wonderful home for family or friends. It’s a unique experience to stay on a working vineyard and the owner invite you to take a tour and taste the wine, a full bodied Merlot, that is produced on site. The vast grounds include a remarkable château dating back to 1783. It’s the perfect place to take a stroll, ride a bike or find a shady tree to read a book under. That said, it will be hard to tear yourself away from the 25 metre long swimming pool, perfect for keen swimmers whilst kids can splash around in the smaller pool attached. All of this whilst overlooking vineyards and valleys, it is such a magical location.Keen chefs will love the wood-burning barbecue, ideal for cooking delicious local produce from nearby markets but should you prefer not to cook there are some amazing restaurants in the immediate area, including four with Michelin stars. The nearest village, Castillon-la-Bataille, is on the Dordogne River where you can hire canoes or soak up the historic atmosphere whilst the world famous wine town of Saint-Émilion is just ten minutes by car. This is an area rich in picturesque villages, chateaux and vineyards with prestigious golf courses, tennis and plenty of water and land-based activities nearby.Buzzing Bordeaux and the enchanting city of Bergerac are both within an hour's drive whilst those yearning for the sea can head to the sweeping beaches of Arcachon for a day on the Atlantic coast. At the end of the day you can return to the tranquillity of your Pavillon, sample some fine wines and enjoy the magnificent sunsets on a holiday you will remember forever.
