About the Owner

Kelvin and I moved from North Scotland to this little piece of paradise in late April 2012 to begin a new chapter in our lives managing the two superb Gites here at Poncet. We were blown away by the superb views all around us and feel like we are on permanent holiday ourselves. What a great way to live. Our first season has introduced us to some wonderful people who have chosen to holiday here and confirmed out decision to move here was the right one.

As previous restaurateurs and hoteliers in Scotland, we have enjoyed this diversity into working and living in France at a more leisurely pace and fulfilled a ten year ambition.

Excellent getaway vacation

  • 5 of 5

The small Hamlet of Omet was a perfect get away from it all location. Our gite was well equipped, clean, comfortable with beautiful views over vineyards from the private garden. The pool offered a cool option whilst sunbathing amongst the lavender scented borders. Our hosts were attentive offering advice and information about the area and what it had to offer. Cadillac the nearby town and it's chateau and markets are worth a visit, St Emillion is a must and the coastal town of Archachon mustn't be missed - sunset on the sand dunes - wow! 5 Poncet a special place with fantastic hosts thank you Cathy and Kelvin

Amazing place with lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to write a review as soon as we arrived but thought I'd leave it so I could include touring tips as well. Really loved this amazing place with stunning views and easy drives to St Emilion, Cadilac, St Macaire. Catherine was one of (if not the!) nicest owner we have met - so kind and generous, even when we arrived about 4-5 hours after scheduled because of bad traffic driving from La Rochelle. Highly recommend - the people in the other gite were staying for 3 weeks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a superb review and no greater compliment for our precious little corner of France here . At the beginning of our fifth season, my reward is continuing to meet wonderfully interesting and warm guests to Poncet.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this lovely Gite, Cathy and Kelvin were excellent hosts and provided everything we required for our holiday and more. Including Jigsaws and children's games for the evenings and rainy days. The way Cathy had prepared for our arrival was greatly appreciated with her filling the fridge with goodies and even a few bottles of local wine. The BBQ was well used during our stay as was the pool with lovely views across the surrounding vineyards. We would recommend this wonderful and well equipped Gite to people and families of all ages.

Le Poncet is a lovely place to spend a holiday. There are fantastic views in a tranquil environment. Cathy is an excellent hostess and has thought of everything. The gite was well stocked with essentials and had folders with local information. We made full use of the pool and walked through the vineyards to the restaurant at Lac du Laromet, went wine tasting, went to St Croix du Mont and to Cadillac among other places.

From the Owner

After a long and exhaustive search in both Languedoc and Gironde, we finally found and fell in love with Poncet. The views are second to none and gave us the perfect balance of a private family home as well as having two stunning Gites with character to manage, amidst the peaceful vineyards of Cadillac. Its close proximity to Bordeaux and its airport were a huge factor in choosing the the area as well as being a gateway to the Dordogne and Lot Valleys, south to the Pyrenees or north to the Loire. A hour west takes us to the Atlantic coastline and the stylish resort of Arcachon. 10mins will take us to Cerons to give us the choice of taking the train to Bordeaux to enjoy city culture and the fabulous Parisienne style architecture of the vibrant riverside city.

Special interest holidays:

Our peaceful panoramic views are stunning and inspirational for artists, writers as well as sun worshipers. Wine lovers will not fail to be impressed with the local Graves reds as well as the sweet whites of Sauternes, Barsac and Cadillac. Try the cremant too at Haux.


The Atlantic coast is approximately 1 hour away by car. The long sandy beaches, well known for surfing, are quite magnificent. The Arcachon Basin, and the town of Arcachon are well worth a visit. The town has many shops and restaurants. Boat trips are also available there. The Dune du Pyla, the largest sand dune in Europe, is just along the coast.


Bordeaux Airport is approximately 35 minutes by car, and Bergerac Airport is approximately 1 1/2 hours by car.

The drive from ferry ports takes approximately 7/8 hours on the very good French autoroutes.


Cadillac 2.5 kilometres; St. Emilion 35 kilometres; Langon 14 kilometres; Bordeaux 30 kilometres.

Further Details:

We are in an area of rolling hills and great views. Wine tasting, walking, painting and cycling are very popular pastimes. A short drive away, on the other side of the river Garonne to the south is the wine area of Sauternes, which has a number grand chateaux, and to the north is the region of Graves. The town of Langon is 20 minutes away and has a good selection of shops and restaurants. Cadillac itself has a number of restaurants, and a very good market on Saturday mornings. The city of Bordeaux has a good selection of shops, restaurants, museums and galleries, plus an excellent new tram system.

From the Owner

Our guests at Poncet enjoy their own privacy as well as being able to share the pool area with others and for us being on site means we can be there to assist if necessary or be as unobtrusive as required. We can offer our guests the experience of a gite holiday with the added bonus of a few hotel style facilities and service. We provide a welcome grocery pack on arrival to help settle in with a few refreshments and stock the gites with the household basics for guest convenience. Our guests stay in a tranquil and peaceful setting but are only a few minutes to the market town of Cadillac for all essentials including a selection of good restaurants to choose from.
