About the Owner

Hi, I'm Julia and married to Nigel, we have a daughter called Lizzy and we live in Derbyshire. We have taken many self catering holidays all over France and chose the area for lots of reasons, we love the views of the vines and it is so quiet and tranquil, yet close to facilities, it has so many places of interest nearby; picturesque Saint Emilion with it's wonderful restaurants and history only 10 minutes away, to being able to travel to the center of Bordeaux within an hour, surrounded by numerous towns and villages, and of course the wine! A place that can be enjoyed all year round. It is really important to us to provide a comfortable and above all clean property, we have tried to ensure that it has what it takes for a carefree self catering holiday for all ages.

From the Owner

Papillon is on the edge of a small quiet hamlet in the heart of wine making country, we love it for the views and tranquil setting, yet close to every convenience.

Activity and Interests

The Arcachon Coastline and the Arcachon Bassin are approximately 117km away taking less than 2 hours, famous for oyster beds, fantastically decorated villas and superb white beaches, also to see is the amazing Pyla Dune, the largest dune in Europe.


How ever you decide to travel Papillon is easy to reach.

If traveling by ferry or eurotunnel Calais is approximately 8hrs away and Saint Malo 5½ hours. If flying both Bergerac and Bordeaux airports are just 1 hr, Limoge takes

longer about 2½ but is still pretty easy with the good French motor ways.


Saint Philippe d'Aiguille is 1.4km / about 1 minute in the car a little longer if you walk through the vines. Castillon la Bataille 9.5kms / 12 mins. Saint Emilion 12km / 10 mins. Libourne 27km / 30 min. Saint Foy la Grand 22km / 35 min.

Bordeaux 64km / 1 hour. Montpon Menesterol 22km / 20 min.

Villafranche de Longchat 10km / 10 min. Saint Seurin Sur I'lsle 15m / 14 mins.

Further Details:

Castillon la Bataille, is 10 minutes away and the nearest of many supermarkets, E Leclerc is open until late all year.

In July and August you can see the spectacular re-enactment of the battle that ended the 100 year war with England, see our website for more information.

Saint Emilion again only 10 minutes away is a beautiful and picturesque medieval city with panoramic views and a Monolithic church, visit in September to witness the parade of Grand Jurade inaugurating new officials and announcing the wine harvest. You can arrange tours and wine tasting from the tourist information centre.
