Spent a long weekend with a group of friends at The Vine House, great accommodation and well equipped. Owners Sasha and Robin were perfect hosts, the wine tour was both interesting and informative and to sample the red and the rose as well - Delish. Good location for trips out to the local market and St Emilion for a wonderful Sunday Lunch, made the weekend perfect. Can’t wait to go back. Loved it.
We stayed in Sept 2017 The gite is fantastic, and well appointed with all the mod cons , simply everything you need. Sasha and Robin met us on arrival with a lovely welcome pack , just what we needed and a super surprise. The place is clean and very tidy. Loved the chickens and the dogs who just seem to know the right time to appear. It’s a pity we didn’t have better weather and that’s the only gripe we had. I must say this is a great base to visit and see the surrounding towns countryside chateaus and in travelling distance to Cognac, Perigeaux St Emillion and also Bordeaux all which we did during outr short visit. Highly recommended many thanks.
When taking a well earned break from work you deserve to relax and this lovely gite on a vineyard delivers perfectly!
The gite is well appointed with good sized bedrooms, living room with large freeview TV, kitchen and multiple eating areas both inside and out. The pool is modern, large and well maintained. Being on a vineyard you are never going to run out of red or rose wines which the owners are happy to show you around and of course purchase a bottle or two!
The nearby village of Villefranche de Lonchat caters for your everyday needs and multiple large supermarkets are only 10 minutes drive away if you want to fill the fridge though Sasha provides an excellent welcome pack should you miss the shops.
Robin and Sasha work hard to make your stay perfect and are always happy to answer questions, help with local restaurants or directions to the local swimming/canoeing lake etc. The vineyard has a couple of dogs, cats and some chickens who will also make you feel welcome.
Internet access is good at the gite even in the countryside and the wireless works well both inside and around the pool, so much better than other places we've stayed.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here as you wont want to leave. We look forward to seeing Robin and Sasha again soon!
We relaxed the minute we arrived at The Vine House. A warm friendly welcome from Sacha and the dogs and we knew we had made a great choice to stay at this wonderful gite. We got into the pool on day 2 after settling in and Robin gave us a tour of the winery. We had already tasted his red and rose which were in our welcome pack and we had no hesitation in buying some more. The gite has everything you need and there is always something to watch whilst you relax as the dogs, cats and rooster and his ladies keep you entertained. Sacha and Robin were most helpful advising on the best markets and we had a lovely evening at the night market festival in Villefranche de Lonchat on the Friday night. Hope to go back and recommend to anyone looking for a tranquil base to go exploring. The lac du Gursan was great for walking round.
We stayed at the Vine House over New Years and we could have not asked for a better place to celebrate! The house is on a beautiful vineyard with a great view of surrounding hills. The home is clean, comfortable, and well kept. From our one year old son and his dog, to our 60 year old parents, we were all very comfortable. We had a wonderful reception and were kept the best company by Luna and Wallace (their dogs). The Domaine's wine is also very tasty!
Thank you again for a great stay!

We really enjoyed our week in The Vine House. Accurate description of facilities, friendly hosts and dogs! Superb pool and poolside sofa. Spoilt with fine wine (at source) and weather - great sunsets from the terrace! Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at the Gite for a week and were greeted before we had even got out the car! The Gite was absolutely spot on for our needs and accommodated 8 of us perfectly. The Gite was clean, spacious and very homely and it was a lovely touch to have the welcome basket after a long journey. The owners were very accommodating and could not have done enough for us. The location was stunning and having the pool was the icing on the cake. There was lots of information at hand on where to go in the area and Sasha and Robin were also a fountain of knowledge. I would 100% recommend this as a place to stay and if you are interested in how a working Vineyard operates from planting right through to the bottling then this is definately the place for you. It's in a great location and is great for chilling by the pool or venturing out to some stunning places. We even went to the Village Friday Night Market which was just fantastic and such an experience! We will definitely be going back!
