Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for providing us with such a wonderful holiday, we all agree that La Veille Ferme is by far the best holiday home we have ever rented. Beautiful house and garden, superbly equipped and a warm welcome...what more could anyone want?

It was especially good for Sam; Claire and Steve say it was so easy to look after him that it made it a real holiday for them and thanks for the extra things you and Martin did to ensure that happened.

An amazing house, with so much charm!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many houses over the years in quite a few countries and this was clearly one of the very best ones! We immediately felt at home and were very sad to leave. The choice was particularly important for us given that we rented it for a very special family occasion.

The house is perfect, very spacious, beautifully decorated, fully functional in all respects, with a splendid terrace and great pool, plus direct access to the river with the possibility to kayak on it. Shops and supermarkets are only a few minutes away by car. Gorgeous St Emilion is 15-20 minutes and Bordeaux less than one hour.

The owner and manager of the house, Joanna, is as charming as the house, very friendly and efficient, and responsive to any question or need that may arise before or during the stay. She also provides excellent advice on where to find some services in Coutras.

If ever we have another family event in the area we will be sure to rent the house again.

Terrific holiday in an amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

What a find. So glad I booked early. This house and it's garden and all it's additional features and extras from toys, canoes, kitchen utensils made our week a really memorable one. The house was much bigger than it looks in the pictures and the space was fantastic. Even though the weather wasn't that kind to us (it was rather wet and cold) the pool was still warm enough to swim in and there were enough other things to do from playing ping pong, taking the canoe out and relaxing in the hammock to keep us happy.

I'd strongly recommend this place - the hosts were fabulous too. Thanks very much Jo for a great holiday.

A wonderful house and a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

La Vieille ferme Is a spacious house which is beautifully decorated . We were 3 couples travelling around France and we spent 3 relaxing nights here. The house caters for large groups particularly families with numerous bedrooms and well appointed bathrooms as well as everything you could possibly need to cook for large groups, as well as outstanding living areas. Sumptuous couches and a slow combustion stove made for very relaxing evenings. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the garden and in the enormous verandah where we able to enjoy the view of the garden and the river. We would have liked to have had longer to enjoy the activities on the river.

The owner Jo was friendly and a wonderful help regarding places to visit and eat. The house is also close to a supermarket and vineyards. The large eat-in kitchen was fabulous ( we didn't even go into the large formal dining room)! We had a wonderful 3 days, the house is amazing and we hope to return another time with our families.

A terrific venue for a great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property with everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing holiday with three generations - from two 80+ Grandparents to two primary school aged children.

It's a set up where everyone can muck in to make it fun. A huge kitchen, large living room and six bedrooms - almost all en suite.

But best of all were the outside spaces - we dined alfresco every night - often with food cooked on the barbecue - with lovely local wines and cheeses. The days had relaxing cool shade for my parents, while the young kids basically became mer-children - spending hours in the pool.

With the addition of a hire car, to travel to/from Coutras and for day trips out, we really had what we needed to make a great holiday. We had riding lessons at the excellent local Harris Horses, wine tours around St Emilion, a few holes of golf, and managed to fix some tennis time in Coutras - all good.

We had 8/9 people sleeping there at various times - it could easily have accommodated several more.

Easy to recommend - and I'm sure we will return.

Wonderful, spacious and beuatifully located house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxed holiday with two families at la vieille ferme. The spacious house is beautifully located and offers both relaxation and playing/fun possibilities with the swimming pool, tennis table, canoes and the great terrace in the backyard.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated as is the rest of the house.

We would definitely recommend la vieille ferme to friends and would love to come back!

Thanks Jo and family for the great week!

Location

From the Owner

We where looking for a project and somewhere to live but most of all we thought that the location on the river and just round the corner from all that lovely wine was a must have.

Nearest Airport : Bordeaux 60k Bergerac 70k at 70 Kilometres Nearest Train : Coutras, libourne, St Emilion, Bordeaux at 2 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : St Medard at 3 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Arcachon at 75 Kilometres Car: necessary

Coutras is situated in Aquitaine, at the meeting point between the Dordogne river and the Gironde. It is an hour from Bordeaux and its international airport and the ancient towns of Perigueux and Cognac.

The medieval city and historic wine center of St Emilion is 20 km away, offering a wide selection of restaurants, wine tastings and châteaux tours. The wide, sandy beaches of Arcachon and Lacanau are about an hour and a half’s drive away and the thriving market town of Libourne, a must-see on a Sunday, is 15 km away.
