“Great holiday house with big pool and very nice hosts”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our family of 2 adults and 3 children (daughters aged 2, 8 and 12) stayed for two weeks on June 2015 and enjoyed our stay very much. Very nice house with good facilities and large, clean pool. Located on peaceful and beautiful countryside but just about 5 min drive to nearest supermarket and other services of Etauliers town. Lars and Susanne were very welcoming and nice hosts and did a lot more than we could expected, for example arranged visit to Cognac winery and came with us to repair shop when we had some problems with our car. Area is also very interesting, there is a lot to do and see within day trip distance (for example Bordeaux, beaches of Atlantic ocean, caves, castles, wineries, markets, Dune de Pilat etc.). Only thing we missed was air conditioning because weather was very hot during our stay. House can be recommended to everybody but I would say that car is a necessity, there are no services within reasonable walking distance.

“Wonderful holiday among the vines of Bordeaux”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We are just back from a wonderful holiday in Coindrias. The gites are set in a beautiful garden surrounded by vines and beside the very clean pool. The gites are one of the best equipped self catering accomodation we have every stayed in. Lars and Susanne were so helpful and welcomiing throughout our stay. Coindrias is a very good base for exploring the wine country, we took the ferry from Blaye ( 15 mins ) over to see all the famous vineyards, and Lars kindly organised wine tastings for us at one of the Chateaux.
We had lunch in St Emilion and climbed the kings tower to view the pictureque town full of character.
One of the highlights was going to the night market in Montendre, after a day of rain, the showers cleaned and we tried some escargots and local Mussels, as well as sampling some local pineau, rose, ice cream and of course crepes.
Hope to return next year.

“Beautiful gite in charming countryside”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have just returned from staying in Maison de Cheminee. A wonderful, peaceful place to stay. Lars and Susanne were so helpful and welcoming and it was a perfect place to stay to discover the surrounding area. Blaye, Talmont, Jonzac, Saintes and just driving along the estuary lots of hamlets to discover. Bordeaux is a beautiful city and park and ride facilities the easiest way to see it. The pool not yet open for us but such a tranquil spot for swimming and sunbathing - perfect!
We would highly recommend staying here. Lovely spot and nice walk/cycle to local shops.

“Beautiful peaceful setting - wondeful hosts”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed here in August this year and had the most wonderful time. The gite itself was well decorated and very well equipped - but the setting and the hosts are what really makes this place special. The gite is one of two gites that the family have formed out of a renovated barn. They are both nestled in the corner of the large and really beautiful garden which surrounds the impressive main house and alongside a vineyard. The main house and the swimming pool and the swimming pool are really stunning. The hosts (who live in the main house) are absolutely friendly, helpful and very interesting people - they made us feel extremely welcome. The area is also wonderful with Blaye, Bordeaux and other smaller towns around - and numerous 'vente direct' vineyards where you can buy excellent quality wine.
