What makes Grange des Vignes a great holiday rental
The cottage is one of three holiday properties (they do not overlook one another) set in large grounds with plenty of games, some bikes, plus shared pool. Beautiful gently undulating countryside allows plenty of opportunities for exploring on foot or by bike. The owners are especially welcoming & knowledgeable - whether your passion is wine, history or things to see or do they'll point you in the right direction.
The pool is heated from about mid-April to end September (once the nighttime temperature reaches 18 degrees) - perfect for families with young children and for holidays outside the peak summer season.
Families & friends looking for a blend of relaxation and activity, particularly anyone with an interest in wine. Weekend breaks of 2 days or more are also available at this vineyard - please just ask us.
Anything to watch out for?
Why the Bordeaux region?
Wine, naturally! Plenty of opportunity for dégustation (tasting) and finding out all about wine, both on the estate and at any number of the chateaux and vineyards of the region.
The region is also steeped in history and culture, we recommend strolling around one of the many historic villages, or a visit to the fascinating city of Bordeaux itself.
There is also a wide choice of activities available nearby including golf, water sports, horse riding, cycling and walking. Fantastic ocean beaches are just over an hour away by car.
The decor and furnishings of Grange des Vignes are of a good, modern standard throughout. Tiled floors, exposed stone walls, exposed beams upstairs and bright blue shutters outside all give the cottage charm and character.
Open-plan living space with sitting area at one end with seating for 6 and TV, and kitchen and dining area at the other (including dining table seating 6). Tiled floors and exposed stone walls. Kitchen equipement includes microwave, four-ring hob, oven refrigerator, coffee-maker, washing machine, dishwasher and kettle.
Leading off the kitchen area and short corridor serves two downstairs bedrooms - a double and a single, each with an en-suite shower room, basin and toilet.
There are two further bedrooms upstairs, a second double and a second single room, each with its own shower room, basin and WC.
All bedrooms have blackout blinds.
The properties are separated from the road by a gate; there is parking for 1 car outside the cottage.
At the rear of the cottage is a pergola with table and chairs for 4, barbecue, and a small private, lawned garden, open at the far end and looking out to the vines and forest at the rear of the estate. Hedges and shrubs on either side mean the garden is not overlooked by the neighbouring properties.
Guests at Grange des Vignes also have use of the estate's large grounds, heated swimming pool, bikes and games (volley-ball, table-tennis, badminton, swing-ball). The pool measures 12m x 6m with a maximum depth of 2.5m. It is surrounded by a fence with a security gate. The pool is heated from May onwards (subject to the air temperature reaching around 20 degrees) and is shared with the other guests.
Please note that outside the peak season Grange des Vignes can be rented for only four guests; all of the rooms would be on the ground floor and the single ground floor bedroom can be turned into a twin or double (2m x 2m).
Two double bedrooms (140 x 190 cm and 160 x 200 cm), two single bedrooms (100 x 200 cm each)
4 ensuite shower rooms
12m x 6m, up to 2.5m deep, heated and with fenced surround and security gate. Shared with the other guests. Open April 1st-October 30th.
