My husband and 2 children had an amazing stay with "Kiek" we just wished it was longer! The setting is breathtaking, Kiek is an amazing host and chef who knows how to make you feel at home...with Real King size beds (no cracks in the middle), fluffy towels, soft linens and delicious, well presented food!!! We fell in love with this place after travelling all around Europe it was a nice oasis where we felt at home yet with an amazing European flare. If you are from North America you will understand what I mean. Some places we stayed at were lovely but just needed a bit more attention to quality of comforts. Kiek spent over 2 year renovation the Bastide to the highest standards while retaining all the charm. She also knows from being a "New Yorker" for a few years the importance of a good bed, linens and service. The setting is amazing and so close to nearby villages like St. Emillion...but with a pool, glass of wine, and a good book who needs to fly around....we soaked it all in and we were sad to leave the next day. As Kiek was preparing our dinner I said Mmmm it smells like "Chicken Marbella"...Kiek relied "It is" She was disappointed that I knew the recipe but I told her it was one of my favorite "comfort foods" and it was nice after several weeks in Spain/France to have a meal like home! She also put together an amazing "cheese platter" that looked like a page out of one of the "Barefoot Contessa's" cookbooks!!! With our wine from her brothers vineyard & sitting out on her beautiful outdoor terrace it was heavenly!!! We would love to spend a week there next time in the cottage! We highly recommend this place and our children loved it too. They spent their time petting the cats, swimming and playing around the grounds. My oldest daughter still talks about her breakfast that Kiek made (she liked her eggs & baked goods). I will attach some photos we took.
