“Beautiful house in a beautiful place.”

A group of ten of us stayed in this house for five days, and it wasn't long enough! Les Merleaux is a wonderful house, large enough to comfortably accommodate all of us in the kitchen and dining room every night, as well as around the fire pit outside. The house is filled with everything you could need.

We spent a lot of time relaxing in and beside the pool, which is of a generous size. The weather was beautiful during our stay, and the seats around the pool are the perfect place to enjoy the sunshine from.

We really enjoyed visiting Duras' markets and local vineyards, and Les Merleaux was the perfect place to stay. I would love to come back some day.

Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Les Merleaux, it is fabulous to hear that you and all your guests enjoyed the amenities at the house and had an enjoyable time visiting the local area.
We appreciate your comments about the pool alarm - this is to stay in line with the French laws regarding pool safety, so we hope you understand that occasionally something as small as a leaf going into the pool can set the alarm off. We hope that it did not distract from your enjoyment of the property.
We look forward to welcoming you and your group again to Les Merleaux in the future.

“An authentic taste of rural living in Acquitane”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is the second year that I have taken my family and joined friends in this lovely part of France. Les Merleaux provides the perfect combination of rural and authentic living spaces in a location convenient to take advantage of the various fairs, night markets and festivals in Duras, Levignac and Monsegur to name but three!
The hardest choice we had to make was whether we barbecued by the pool, ate Al Fresco fresh French produce in the walled garden or headed out for a taste of the local produce on offer in the surrounding towns.
The children (5 to 9 of them at various times) either played in the huge garden, splashed around in the pool or not to look for 'dinosaurs' in the surrounding forests and vines.
Feel the stress bleed off as soon as you turn the corner into this taste of paradise hidden away in the tiny hamlet of Merleaux!
