Many thanks for your lovely review. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday at the gite - and that the weather was a lot better than you returned to in the Netherlands !

Hartelijk dank voor uw mooie recensie. We zijn verheugd dat u van uw vakantie in de gite genoten was - en dat het weer veel beter was dan u terugkeerde naar Nederland!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A perfect sanctuary for those in need of some peace and tranquility, which we certainly were!
When we weren't swimming in the pool, we lazed around in the lovely garden, amongst the pots of geraniums, gazing at the views and basking in the sunshine.
On more energetic days we enjoyed exploring local villages and markets, taking advantage of the excellent (and very cheap) mussels and oysters. (Great cooking facilities at the gite.)
Martin was always on hand with weather updates, directions and advice about where to go (and chats, which we enjoyed!)
As already stated in other reviews, the gite was fantastically well equipped and comfortable, beautifully clean and the bed was really comfy (very important and not always the case in our experience!)
The only downside was that the week flew by so quickly. We've already booked again for next year and are counting down the days!

Thanks again. Martin and Chris

Mike - many thanks for your very kind review. We are delighted to hear that you found your 2nd visit to La Vieille Grange to be as welcoming as the 1st ! For our part, it was a pleasure to see 2 guests who were so clearly enjoying everything - figs and apples included ! We look forward to welcoming you both back again in due course. Best wishes, Chris and Martin

Many thanks for your great review ! We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back !

We'll send you some photos of the gaggle (is that the word ?) of hoopoes that visited the garden during your stay ! The most we've ever seen at one time - must have been your bird hunting safaris in the garden that attracted them !

Thanks again !

“Fantastic Holiday”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Really enjoyed our stay. Gite was exactly as described and worked perfectly for four friends. Was amazing to have such a lovely clean pool overlooking the fabulous Bordeaux countryside. Chris and Martin could not have been more helpful. We would all wholeheartedly recommend and I'm sure we will return. Thanks Chris and Martin!

Many thanks for your very kind review ! It was a pleasure welcoming people who were so clearly having a great time !

Although the gite's primarily designed for 2 people, we're delighted that you were able to have 2 friends stay also and apparently have plenty of room !

Thanks again.

“Fantastic relaxation!”

person found this review helpful

Beautiful gite, spacious and clean, well equipped and provisioned. Exceptional hosts, especially Keanu! We had the most relaxing weeks holiday ever in this lovely tranquil area. The gite was even nicer and much bigger than it appears in the photos. Chris and Martin were wonderful hosts, attentive but unobtrusive. The pool was a delight and maintained to the highest standards with lots of different seating areas to just chill and follow the sun. Outstanding and can't rate it highly enough on all counts. You could say we had a lovely time!
