Villa in Mouliets-et-Villemartin, Nr. Libourne, Gironde, Aquitaine / Dordogne, France - In the heart of French wine country, minutes from Castillon la Bataille
Enjoy our luxurious three bedroom villa with large outdoor pool and gardens, BBQ and poolside dining deep in the heart of the French countryside with Castillon la Bataille only minutes away for good food and wine.
Bikes are provided for those who wish to cycle around the area however, the walks are wonderful through the vineyards with just a 5 minute walk across the field to the private lake. Gym equipment is also available for those who are feeling energetic but if, like us, you just enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine, we have a lovely bar area with a fabulous view of the pool.

Rural idyll close to all amenities
We had a wonderful 2 week holiday with our friends enjoying relaxing breakfasts in the conservatory and dinners/BBQ's by the floodlit pool under the stars. Picking fruit was a special treat and getting to know the locals on our walks and excursions to Castillon and St Emilion was delightful giving us plenty of opportunity to try out our conversational French. Mike and Barbara have a lovely property which will appeal to all.

Perfectly designed villa
We have arrived yesterday and are astounded by the great design of the house with ample space for everything! The garden is enormous but private. The rooms are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and of course- the pool! Together with the verranda this is the ideal place to relax and enjoy your holiday. The Intermarche is easy to find with good selection of BBQ ideas. Today we visited a market in Libourne and tomorrow we will visit one of the wine merchants. The biggest problem will be to choose only one!

“Most people flock to the Cote d'Azur but we love the French wine country of Bordeaux. The villa is located in a peaceful and private cul-de-sac, in a beautiful acre of gated gardens with high walls ensuring absolute privacy. Surrounded by vineyards. Lively town Castillon la Bataille is minutes away by car and is fabulous for their fine dining restaurants, markets, brocantes and boutiques. Picturesque towns nearby are St. Emillion and Libourne are near by. You will find several supermarkets close by including InterMarche and LeClerc. Activities in the area include: Wine tasting at nearby Chateaux, Horse riding, Canoeing, Fishing, Shopping, Swimming. Bordeaux and Bergerac are 40 mins away by car or train direct from Castillion la Bataille.”
