Valerie's gite provides a truly authentic french holiday experience. A true away from it all rural retreat. The gite and grounds are beautiful and spacious with the added bonus of a vineyard to stroll through watching stunning sunsets over the Bordeaux hills. The gite is very child friendly and our 2 boys loved wandering the grounds and vineyard and playing in the pool and play area. There is a fantastic built in stone BBQ which is great for grilling steaks over vine wood and a lovely shaded eating area.
The gite is less than 10 mins away from the nearest boulangerie in st ferme and 15 mins from sauveterre de guyenne with supermarket and another excellent boulangerie. St emilion is 40 mins away and bordeaux an hour.
Valerie is an exceptional host. We arrived late on Saturday evening and had no food and shops were closed. Valerie shared her own food with us and provided some of her own wine from the vineyard and we felt very welcome. This set the tone for a lovely relaxing week in the bordeaux countryside.
What a beautiful property and location.
Stayed here with family in June as whilst following Wales in the Euro2016 finals. Bordeaux is only 45 minutes away by car.
We were met and welcomed by the owner who showed us around before providing us with some light refreshments and a bottle of her own delicious wine.
The Gite is situated amongst vineyards in beautiful countryside and was blessed with scores of different bird species (my other passion).
If you want to get away from it all, you could not pick a better place to stay.
