A lovely quiet Gite ideally situated in the vineyards , but near a small town for essentials

  • 5 of 5

Super place ,v comfortable , all mod cons. Pleasant British owners who were extremely helpful re places to go , where to shop etc. When we arrived , there was wine in the fridge , and Johnathon the owner on hand to explain everything.

A week was not really long enough to explore the area , and taste the wines , but we managed. All in all ,wouldn't hesitate in recomending the cottage to anyone who enjoys wine and a little bit of peace and quiet

Don't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We've been here 4 days so far and so just 3 days left :-(. We wanted peace, relaxation and beautiful surroundings and we've got the lot!!

The cottage is beautiful and totally private, exactly how it looks on the website ie:- no clever photography! As for the bed:- I always fear it will be like a trampoline and that I will be woken up every time by my giant of a husband when he decides to turn over ( at least giant compared to me) but thankfully the bed is perfect.

All we can hear is the rustling of the trees and the odd car pass every couple of hours. Around Saint Emilion the scenery is exceptionally beautiful..after visiting the region around Sarlat 2 years previous we didn't think the landscapes could be beaten but be assured they can.

We have tasted Jonathan's quality red and white wine so far, just need to sample the rose ..looking forward to that:-)))).

I know once we are back in grey old England I'll never get around to writing this review, therefore while we are having a day of from all the chateaus and medieval villages and just enjoying the cottage, this is my review. Enjoy!!

Perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks stay in this wonderful gite. It is the nicest we have ever stayed in (and we've stayed in a few). Very spacious for a couple, though it could sleep a small family as there are also sofa beds. Beautifully renovated, very clean and well equipped, rangemaster oven, gas bbq, WiFi and even uk tv (if that's your thing). Beautiful bedroom area in a boutique hotel meets romantic French shabby chic style, large and really comfortable bed. Small plunge pool perfect for cooling down when sunbathing, sunny terrace and garden. Jonathan and Lesley were perfect hosts unobtrusive but there if you needed them. The gite is situated on a vineyard set back on a quiet country lane in the beautiful French countryside, great for cycling and dog walking. Duras is a short drive and has some nice restaurants, boulangeries, markets etc. We are already planning a return trip to this lovely holiday getaway.
