The cottages are left open on the arrival day & any check in can be done with social distancing. SOCIAL DISTANCING we are in a rural setting in small hamlet of 10 houses. It’s a 1.2 km walk through country lanes to the centre of the local village. This has a restaurant, bar, shop, butcher & pharmacy. The small medieval town of St Emilion is 9 kms away with lots of terrace restaurants. If you do not want to go into any big towns or hypermarkets you can be simply live locally using village shops. There are also out-door markets almost every day. There are beaches on 2 local lakes, also set in the countryside, but little used except at the weekends. Each cottage has its own garden and/or terrace with your own sun loungers, tables & chairs and BBQ’s. The only common area is the pool with its large sun terrace It has more well-spaced sun-loungers, tables & chairs etc. For this period, we are increasing the pool chemicals & ask people to use the pool shower before swimming. It is easy to use the pool for a swim & then return to your own garden/terrace for sunbathing & relaxing. The maximum number of people if all the properties are in use is only 10. THE COTTAGE - FREE ARRIVAL MEAL - Set in the Bordeaux vineyards and fully renovated throughout our beautiful Rose Cottage is perfectly situated for exploring the Dordogne Chateaux or Bordeaux & its coast. It is only 8 kms/5 miles from the medieval wine city of St. Emilion. Architecturally designed within an ancient winemaking barn to provide superb facilities & yet retain the charm of their original beams & golden stonework. Rose Cottage comfortably accommodates 2 people (plus cot). It has a double bedroom & new en-suite shower room. The modern chief’s kitchen & well-furnished open plan living area leads out onto a private terrace overlooking the pool with sun lounger, dining table & gas BBQ. Catering is available either on arrival or during the holiday so it’s like having a diner party prepared for you. As we situated in the world famous Bordeaux vineyards we offer escorted wine tours by car and walking tours of 12th Century St Emilion. Alternative, you can just borrow bikes and do it yourselves. The pool (4m x 6m)/ (20ft x 15ft) is set in a walled garden surrounded by vines & roses. It has steps and is alarmed for child security. The pool terrace overlooking the vines has plenty of sun lounges, table, chairs etc. It is the setting for our collection of Balinese & other eastern statues, which are lit at night. The cottage also has off-street parking & is surrounded by picturesque countryside, beautiful villages and churches. The cottage shares a pool with Vine Cottage (2-bed/4 person) & Lavender Cottage(2-bed 4 person) both of which have their own private terraces. Vine Cottage & Rose Cottage (Property ID is 361345) can be booked as a single large 3 bedroom/6 person property. Facilities & Equipment - all cottages have traditional rug covered tiled floors & golden exposed stone work which contrast with the modern fittings & classic furniture.

About the neighbourhood
After relaxing on the pool side terrace borrow bikes or walk through the timeless vineyards. Relax in the restaurants of the ancient square of Saint Emilion, the medieval wine city. Explore the beautiful villages and wine chateaux of Puisseguin, Lussac & Montagne with their local churches, shops and bar/restaurants. Experience the local night markets for their cuisine & incredibly cheap wines. For the more energetic there is the nearby golf, tennis, horse riding, fishing & canoeing on the Dordogne. For the more adventurous there is ballooning, sand-flying/para-surfing, rock climbing & even potholing.
Getting around
A car is essential as its a rural location. However there are regular high speed trains from our local town of Libourne to Bordeaux (under 20 mins).
