Some comments and testimonials from our past guests



Go Back to description


Myself and Two friends stayed here for Three nights recently and what a wonderful experience it was .
We found the service from Sue and Cath to be magical , with fantastic meals prepared to perfection for us in the evening . The breakfasts where perfect too !
We enjoyed the swimming pool and the lovely surroundings and location of this beautiful old house , and really appreciated in particular the trouble that our hosts took to cater to our needs in a professional and discreet manner .
We loved the location of this place as it allowed us to cycle to lovely towns like Saint Emilion and St Foy La Grande and still return in time later the same day for a relaxing swim !
Our stay here really made our holiday. Have no doubts , if you are considering staying here just book it !

We stayed here for two nights in July 2010, it was the most fantastic place, the rooms were lovely, that atmosphere was wonderful. Went wine tasting just up the road. We were made to feel so welcome by Sue and Cathy and would heartedly recommend a stay here for complete relaxation.Bridget & Ellis Gates (Hants UK)   July  2010

We have been several times to this accomodation and returned each time because we knew that we could relax, enjoy the surroundings and be guaranteed of a very warm welcome. Our friends wanted to visit France but as he is in a wheelchair, finding suitable accomodation was not easy. We were aware that one of the rooms in the gite was being made wheelchair accessible and thus recommended that we all go together. We had a brilliant holiday - with Nick finding the local lanes to be suitable for excursions as well as St Foy, Bergerac and St Emilion. The table d'hote is thoroughly recommended. The accomodation proved so suitable that a return visit has been booked!

We enjoyed everything from the sun to the stars, the pool to the peace, the weather to the walks, the house to the hospitality! Thank you for making our holiday one to remember. We'll miss you, and can we come back?

Great holiday, it's been really peaceful. I'm envious of you guys. What a place! Hope to come back soon.
Becky Green (Wraxall, Bristol.UK.)

4 days was not enough. But more than enough to know you have created a paradise. It was amazing, the place, the area, the atmosphere, but especially the friendliness of the hosts. Thank you so much.
Andre Ilana Kilian, Christo Lizl Kok (South Africa)

Thanks so much Sue and Cath for all your wonderful hospitality, for making this trip so special (for our engagement) and for taking such good care of Vibby as he recovered from his cold! Special thanks to Ray and Mike for their vineyard feast. This was a vacation to remember for the rest of our lives! Thank you for becomming a special part of our memories.

The setting for Vibby and Shukti's engagement - where he popped the question!

You only have to walk in the door to know it will be just perfect! Lovely house full of character and super hospitality(and very helpful with information).
Darren, Julie and Matty (Sussex, UK)

Thanks Sue and Cath for affording us a very relaxing peaceful vacation. The past two weeks have just flown by. We will miss Pinky around our table and the fresh croissants every morning. Hope to return to taste test your home grown wine, next time we'll promise not to try for the guiness book of records for the 6.5 litres of wine in one night(well there were 4 of us!).
Trevor and Lois Nancarrow (Glen Mills, PA. USA)

This is a very hard place to leave. You have created something special. Thank you for your hospitality, we felt well looked after and have had a wonderful break, the first of many!!
Pam, Michelle and Ella (East Dulwich, London.UK.)

The English hospitality and the French surroundings make a perfect match. Thank you for everything. You two really can make people feel at home. We will spread the word amongst our friends and come back with some of them too. Thanks.

We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect, the weather was perfect and the ambiance was perfect.
We liked best to swim in the pool with the lights on at night!(Tim, Floris and Josephine)

Oasis de quietude au milieu des vignes, l'acceuil est sympatique et discret. Merci.
