I stayed here with my parents in May 2018, and what a lovely relaxing trip it was. The gite is really comfortable, with all the equipment you might need (including British TV!) and its own sunny patio. We didn't manage to get into the pool this time but it was fabulous to be able to walk out of the gite's door and out into the huge grounds here - a lake with free frogs' chorus, golf, gym and games room to name a few of the things to do. The gite is well situated too, not far from the autoroute so easy access to Bordeaux for the airport, and lots of beautiful villages, chateaux and other things to do, including of course some great vineyards. Some tips - take a walk around the ramparts of Roquebrune for some great views, and try the Saturday morning market in La Reole for local produce. And St Emilion is a must-see too. Highly recommended, I'll be back to stay again!
We stayed for two weeks at the end of August and the children have not stopped asking when we're going back!
Jo and Adie were fantastic hosts and organised lots of fun things for our children aged 6 and 3. A treasure hunt, collecting eggs from the chickens, golf, sack races, egg and spoon races and much more.
The gite is ideally located not far from a choice of airports and near to many attractions. Having visited the area many times before we didn't venture out much as the gite had so much to enjoy, the pool, bar, table tennis, pool table, golf, the lake and the extensive grounds kept us all happy and relaxed for the whole 2 weeks.
Jo and Adie were on hand should we need anything but we felt we had privacy too so the best of both worlds.
We would not hesitate to book again, in fact if we don't the children may just book themselves!
Gites des Pignons is a perfect place for a holiday in S/W France near the pilgrimage road and the small village of Roquebrune. The flat suits a family or a couple - or you can go on your own. Lots of attractions and town to visit in the nearby area: St. Emilion, La Reole e.g. - small markets, lovely landscape, wine yards, historic places. You are not bored. But if you prefer to relax there is also plenty to do at Gites des Pignons: Swimming pool, golf course, out door kitchen, bar, games, walks in the area or go biking. At the same time Bordeaux is not far away for a day in the city. I like the combination of rural, city, and relaxation. Jo and Adie are good and welcoming hosts with lots of information about the area. There is a good atmosphere - as a Dane it means a lot that there is a feeling of "hygge" - I look forward to go back again.
We truly had a fun and enjoyable, two week holiday, at the Gite Les Pignons, with Adie and Jo, who are fantastic and entertaining hosts, who go out of their way, to make sure you have a fantastic time .
Such a fantastic location, with plenty to see and do, including visits and sight seeing in the local towns and places of interest. We loved the local markets and antique fairs, our favourite had to be the evening market in Monsegur.
The Gite is a superb location to base your holiday, it also benefits from having, a swimming pool, mini golf course, games room with bar and full selection of games, pool, darts etc and of course the lake. We are looking forward very much to our next visit.
Had an amazing week, has to be the most relaxing weeks holiday I've ever had. The Gite is amazing, loads of space and everything you need and more. Played golf everyday on their very own 9 holes while my wife relaxed around the lovely pool.
Evenings were great, the bar and gamesroom are amazing and again we had exclusive use of these. Pool, darts, table tennis and table football.
Local towns are lovely, bars, restaurants and markets. Including fabulous night markets where the food is amazing and the atmosphere fantastic.
I was not expecting the scale of les Pignons, the whole place is beautiful and the owners Jo and Adie were fab. Nothing was too much trouble.
Great place, great facilities and great hosts!!
Third time we've stayed at this lovely this place. It's a real haven away from work by the lake, round the pool or around the local countryside. Teenage kids love it too - the summer kitchen is great fun with pool table, table tennis and darts. Jo and Adie are very welcoming. They gave us great tips in where to go locally and Adie is never shy to challenge you to a game of pool or table tennis. Thank you!
