We spent 3 nights at this quiet, peaceful and comfortable place on our trip to Bordeaux. The house is spacious and clear with complete facilities. The layout is very user friendly, especially for elderly because there are two bedrooms on the ground floor. We like the country style of the house. The owner, Denis, lives next door with her family. The folks are very friendly and helpful. Denis gave us a bottle of white wine on our arrival.
We visited vineyards and drove to the beaches, had lunches at local restaurants, and prepared dinners at the house every evening. We dined on the patio in the garden under the open sky, enjoyed the full moon and good wine. We would love to stay there again with a bigger party on our next visit.
The house has convenient access, but you need to drive. GPS is recommended. If you are flying into Bordeaux in the morning, you may want to ask the owner if you can check in earlier before 3pm. If early check-in is not available, you may visit one of the small town centers in the vicinity for lunch and a quick tour.

The photos do not do this place justice. Of course, it looks lovely (or we wouldn't have booked it) - but we were over the moon with just how beautiful it is in real life.
The owners have done a wonderful and sympathetic renovation. Lovely muted colours, pared back but elegant interiors. Each bedroom with its own en-suite. We all felt instantly relaxed.
Great location - just 20-25 into Bordeaux by car. 7 min drive to a big super market, 2 minute drive to a local supermarket. Most critically the Boulangerie can be walked to.
The garden is stunning and quiet. The pool was too cool for me in April, but of course it didn't bother the kids in the slightest and they adored it.
We did trips in the morning and lazed languorously by the pool in the afternoon. It was utter bliss.
