About the property


Set on a hilltop, surrounded by vineyards, the stone building was originally a chai, a wine store. The recently converted self catering gites have been designed to a high standard. Each has an open plan living/dining area with a fully fitted kitchen, and doors to a private terrace. The views are spectacular. On the first floor there are two twin bedded rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. A perfect place to relax, and an ideal base for those wishing to explore the area. Popular activities, apart from wine tasting, include walking, painting and cycling. St. Emilion is only 35 kilometres away, with the Atlantic coast, Arcachon and the Dune du Pyla about an hour away. To the south the Pyrenees can be reached in under 3 hours.

About Catherine Baikie

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.


Catherine Baikie purchased this barn in 2012

Why Catherine Baikie chose Bordeaux area

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.

What makes this barn unique

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.

Notes on accommodation: All around are fields and vineyards and there are no fences. Our gites have the benefit of full central heating in the winter. No smoking inside the accommodation please. Outside: The private swimming pool is 8m x 4m with Roman steps at the shallow end. There is a large patio area with sun loungers, chairs and parasols. The panoramic views from the pool area are beautiful, and it is a great place to watch the sunset. There is a lake and restaurant nearby, at the bottom of the hill, it is within walking distance.

Perfect location for a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay with the gorgeous and welcoming Catherine. The Gite was in the most idyllic and beautiful setting and perfect for our families needs. There's lots to do in the surrending area but also lovely for a relaxing break. Can't recommend it highly enough.
