About the property

Great location for Golf Fishing Bird Watching Close Bordeaux Libourne Medoc - Enviable Location, Medieval History, Vineyards, Wine, Restaurants, Markets, Beach/Arcachon

Ideally situated just 15 minutes drive from the UNESCO World Heritage Medieval town of Saint Emilion, situated on the heights of the Entre Deux Mers this lovely house is set in a beautiful woodland garden.

A bright comfortable and contemporary interior with ample space throughout.

The house was restored with care and attention to detail in 2009 and now offers very comfortable accommodation for our guests. The high quality air conditioning being a particular asset during those hot summer nights. There is an inviting swimming pool which is heated between May to September.

A lovely covered terrace on which to enjoy those alfresco meals, perhaps complimented by a bottle of the local Vin de Bordeaux!

The house is perfectly situated for exploring the area and visiting the many local attractions, fishing or kayaking on the Dordogne river, hot air ballooning, local day and night markets and countless vineyards.

The house is not too far from the coast either. Arcachon and Pyla sur Mer about 1.5 hours drive, an ideal opportunity for a day by the sea with perhaps a nice seafood lunch enjoyed overlooking the ocean.

The whole area is steeped in history, the Bordeaux, Bergerac, Medoc and Saint Emilion wines are world famous. Chateau Bonhoste is within walking distance from the house, a tour of the vines followed by a tasting session will be a memorable experience. There is also a Bar within walking distance too.

The owners reside on site ensuring guests peace of mind that everything will be perfect.

Guestbook comments from the manager

‘Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful Gite. The area was rural and stunning but also near enough to main roads to be able to travel easily. We had a fantastic week making use of all the excellent facilities you provided. The immaculately clean Pool was a welcome delight in the heat of the beginning of the week as was the air conditioning. The garden was beautifully landscaped so the short stroll to the pool through the orchard was lovely. The Gite itself was immaculate, modern and homely, the welcome package of cheese and wine and necessities was a nice surprise. There is plenty to do in the region and we enjoyed trips to St Emillion, Bordeaux, Arcachon and canoeing along the Dordogne to name a few. The well-stocked local supermarket being only 10 minutes away was very convenient. The hosts David and Julie are friendly and accommodating without being intrusive, providing tips for good spots to visit and directions. All in all we had a very relaxing week at Gite 33 and would love to return. Thank you David and Julie.

Very well equipped and air conditioned gite with excellent pool

  • 5 of 5

A week for our family of two adults and two teenage children. The gite is very well equipped especially the kitchen which has absolutely everything needed for making meals. The air conditioned bedrooms are great for a good night's sleep - the units are especially quiet which is not always the case. Fabulous area - Rauzan has a butcher and two bakers and is walkable, there are two massive supermarkets within 10km and walks / runs on the small roads within the local vineyards was memorable. Overall one of the best gites we have stayed in.

Mostly good

  • 3 of 5

Lovely villa with a glorious pool (swimming only to be between 10am and 8pm unless arranged differently in advance).

We were looking for a peaceful retreat from London and were surprised no previous reviews mentioned the main road just above the villa, which was the constant soundtrack, including regular lorries thundering past.

Villa itself was beautifully done with many superb touches. We did wonder about the logic of the two lovely king size bedrooms being up one staircase (behind the child stairgate ) while the obvious children's twin bedroom was at the other end of the house up a separate staircase.

Lovely friendly kitten next door.

Nearest village is a really long way away -don't plan on walking there for croissants. Castle there is surprisingly good and worth the visit (shuts at midday).

Owner's Response: We’re glad you like the villa but are surprised with some of your comments, as we have had such positive reviews regarding the Gite’s location. Most guests have said how much they have enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and have opted for the pleasant walk to the two local boulangeries rather than the 2 minute drive. The main road provides easy access for guests from all directions, but is at least 100 metres away from the property - as shown on our location map. I think there may have been some local highways work taking place during your stay which was unusual but is not something we can control. As far as the stairgate is concerned, we should have explained that it is interchangeable between staircases to meet the different needs of guests.

A well equipped, air conditioned Gite with pool.

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome was provided by David and Julie and we were introduced to the air conditioned, well equipped Gite. Spacious and well furnished, very comfortable beds and good sized bedrooms. Efficient showers and kitchen appliances. A lovely terrace to sit in sun or shade. The pool area is beautiful, with plenty of chairs and recliners, serviced and cleaned each day, a very relaxing and beautiful area to relax in. You may be lucky enough as we were to see a red squirrel in the garden or pick a fig! A good walk to the village can provide fresh bread each morning, but enough supermarkets are a very short drive away for all food and drink needs and choices.The Dordogne is nearby, with villages alongside and boat trips available. Beautiful countryside all around and a journey through the vineyards to Saint Emillion was memorable. The region is steeped in history and with a good climate you do not tire of places to visit ; equally the Gite is a very comfortable place to unwind, it was a wonderful stay.

Fabulous gite

  • 5 of 5

we were very impressed with this gite and it had everything that we could wish for. The pool area is brilliant and the kids loved it. David and Julie were amazing hosts, whilst visiting my husband had to return to the uk, the children and I stayed and they could not have been more helpful and kind to us. We hope to return again very soon. Jenny
