Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a quiet location based on a working vineyard. The property is approx a 30 min easy drive from Bordeaux airport. When we arrived the property did not disappoint. It was as described online. The kitchen is well furnished with all utensils and equipment. The living area is spacious, clean and comfortable. The stairs to the upper floor separates the 2 areas. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were clean.

Jean-Louis and Nola were always on hand if required but not intrusive. Jean-Louis has a wide knowledge of the area and helped us plan areas to visit. The property is within easy reach of St Emillion, Sauternes and many other wine producing areas. If you want good wine then try the produce of Jean-Louis. Each Sunday you can purchase fresh oysters in the village,goes down well with Jeans produce.The Village is a 10 min easy walk and there are various bigger shops within 20 mins drive.Loose yourself in the countryside its relaxing.If you enjoy photography like me then you have a choice of quiet villages, chateaus or Bordeaux itself.

There were many elements which made this an enjoyable holiday. If I am in this area again I will stay at this property again.

A Rare Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an authentic farmhouse and La Magnolia lived up to to all our expectations. There was more than ample space for a family of 4 with our 2 teenage children each having their own room. The property is well presented and looks out over a grassy area and on to the vineyard. Location wise it was ideal being just a short drive to Bordeaux and about 90 minutes to the Atlantic coast.

And then there are the owners Jean-Louis and Nola. What fantastic hosts! Jean-Louis was always available to answer questions about the area, good local restaurants, market days, family activities such as wind surfing, canoeing and cycling and everything that only local knowledge can provide. And to cap it all, there was the tour of the vineyard, the wine making process and a tasting. We are not wine buffs but the wine was first class! Its also available to buy, so we did and are still enjoying it now we're back in the UK.
