What makes Domaine des Vignes a great holiday rental
Four attractive cottages set in beautiful gently undulating countryside, allowing plenty of opportunities for exploring on foot or by bike. The decor and furnishings are of a good, modern standard throughout. Tiled floors, exposed stone walls, exposed beam give the cottages charm and character. In the grounds are plenty of games, some bikes, plus good-sized shared heated pool.
One of the cottages (Maison des Vignes) is well-suited to entertaining and will have a 20-place garden table & chairs set up for you outside.
All stays include a vineyard tour & tasting.
The owners Jean-Louis and Nola are especially welcoming & knowledgeable - whether your passion is wine, history or things to see or do they'll point you in the right direction.
New for 2019 - pool to be heated from May onwards!
Large family gatherings looking for a large place to stay while preserving some independence. The lovely Bordeaux region is fabulous for walks, cycling, markets, wine-tasting and day-trips to the ocean.
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.
Attractive, well-equipped cottages in spacious grounds
The four cottages comprise converted outbuildings (Cottage, Grange & Relais) plus renovated farmhouse (Maison) in the grounds of this working vineyard.
Relais & Maison adjoin the owner's property, but are completely separate & private - their entrances are independent and outside spaces are not overlooked.
Grange and Cottage adjoin one another, but again have separate entrances and private outside spaces.
Outside, each cottage has a table and chairs, barbecue and small terrace area, plus access to the estate's large grounds, 12m x 6m heated swimming pool (open from May, subject to the air temperature reaching around 20 degrees), bikes and games (volley-ball, table-tennis, badminton, swing-ball).
