“A perfect spot for a great weekend away”
Reviewed May 3, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The moment Jan responded to my enquiry email I just knew we would have would have a lovely time, Jan could not have been more helpful or welcoming, nor could Jim, Spoon or Dolly come to think of it. A wonderful, comfortable, spacious well stocked Gite surrounded by vineyards with some really thoughtful thoughtful touches. It surpassed my expectations and I would not hesitate to re-book.

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a wonderful place. Perfect location, perfect house, perfect hosts. Jan and Jim made us feel very welcome from the start, Jan even planned our week for us, suggesting places to visit and booking restaurants for us. The young grandchildren enjoyed the swings and all the toys that were available for them to play with, but Dolly the dog was the real highlight. A big thank you Jan and Jim for everything.

“Wonderful - Couldn't Have Been Better”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Wonderful location and amazing views over the vines. Lovely gite with absolutely everything laid on - v spacious, high quality etc. Nice pool and patio/dining area. Even a little home-made par 3 golf course for a bit of fun with a beer - v popular with our teenager and dad. Jim and Janet are perfect hosts. Cute dogs.We rarely 'return' but this one is so special that we might just go again.....

Lovely to get your review and that your holiday with us at Guillemassot was a success. Jim was extra pleased that you enjoyed his pitch and putt course. He has big plans for the winter to improve his "greens" and a few obstacles, ie trees!. We would be delighted to have you here to stay again, and now you have found our special wine shop you will need to top up stocks. Thanks again.

“A beautiful house and a very warm welcome”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We've just returned from a week's stay in this beautiful place with our three daughters aged 9, 12 and 13. More of a home than a gite, the house and garden are lovely and the owners were very welcoming. The place is equipped with everything you could possibly need, the pool, garden and house were all spotless and I really can't think of anything that could be improved. The girls enjoyed the nearby markets, and the owners (and the neighbours) very friendly dogs. Jan and Jim the owners were amazing hosts and very helpful, especially with recommendations of places to go and things to do. Can't recommend it highly enough.

“I wish we had booked a longer stay”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

From the moment I received the first email from Jan, the whole experience was fantastic.
Personal directions to the property (that anyone could follow).
Once arrived at the property we realised very quickly that we should have booked a far longer stay.
We travelled with our 17 month old and 3 year old daughters as well as my parents visiting for 3/4 of the stay (who had travelled from Australia).
Every imaginable item that you would need is provided. Luckily we had read reviews before us that said not to take children's toys etc as everything was there, and it was. In perfect condition too I might add. Everything was provided for the children (stair gate, children themed bedding, plates and cups etc for the children).
The welcome goodies, the hospitality and the great tales told by Jim only added to the amazing week.
I can guarantee that Guillemassot will become a regular place we visit, most likely twice a year now!!!!
Thank you Jim & Jan, you are the perfect hosts with the most perfect accommodation.

“A beautifully and relaxing house - A home from home”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We have just returned from spending three wonderful weeks at Jan and Jim´s holiday home for the third year. The house is very comfortable and situated in the middle of the vineyards. A quiet very well equipped place. But the best is the friendly and dedicated owners, Jan and Jim, that are there from the minute you arrived to help and support you.
This year we brought our granddaughter of one year - and all the equipment necessary was there when we arrived. They even took care of our dog when we were of for dinners with our friends. If you love people and good company its the place to stay.

Thank you both for the lovely review, you are family now. Looking forward to seeing you again next year for more "discussions" and "wine appreciation"! We hope you will enjoy seeing Guillemassot in September when all those grapes and plums will be ripe.

“Peace and tranquility in the heart of beautiful rustic countryside”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed here at the end of June beginning of July. We were two families with two grown up children. Jan and Jim, the owners, are the most welcoming, thoughtful hosts. The house was spotless and well equipped. They had laid in all the ingredients for breakfast, tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter, eggs and homemade jam. Also some local wine. All complementary and so appreciated. The house is spacious and really nicely decorated. The garden is beautiful and the outside area perfect for eating. Guillemassot is a little remote but there are two or three villages within a 5-10 min drive. A useful shop in Pessac sells bread, salad, fruit, ham, cheeses and a range of dry goods. It closes over lunchtime, though. Two big supermarkets within 15 mins drive. We had a really relaxing holiday, played lots of board games (big supply at the house). This house would be lovely for a family with young children as it has a swing and lovely area for children to run around and of course the pool ( which has an alarm to alert you if someone falls in when not in use). Highly recommended.
