First floor

This floor plan was prepared in good faith and may not be exactly to scale.

This property is located in the Gironde and close to both the Lot-et-Garonne and the Dordogne, making it ideal for discovering all three areas. The Gironde is the largest département in France, straddling the Gironde estuary formed by the confluence of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. It is the heart of Bordeaux wine country, producing 57 varieties of AOC vintages, including the perennial favourites St-Emilion, Médoc, Pauillac, Sauternes, and of course Bordeaux. Visitors from all over come to take tours of the vineyards, leaving with the boot full of bottles. Bordeaux, a busy port since Roman times, is a lively city of museums, theatres, and restaurants, especially in the 18th century city centre with its elegant shops and cafés. The vast Cathedral St-André and the stylish English public gardens are a must see.

Marion Chadwick (2016)

Exactly as described. Great lay-out for six adults, great pool. Peaceful, atmospheric, very special. Gorgeous countryside, lovely local towns.

Mr A. van Groenendael (2014)

We had a wonderful Christmas trip to the Duras region. The villa was splendid, and we made nice trips to Bordeaux, Duras and Bergerac. The environment is beautiful, even in winter. Some days were sunny with blue sky (even played ping-pong) others foggy and cloudy. All in all quite a nice experience. Thank you for all advice and service.

Emma Wain (2014)

Just truly a stunning place, we were so pleased with it, we have been to France many times and this was by far the best place we have stayed in. The accommodation was fantastic. The kitchen was to a high standard, with every appliance you could think of. Having eggs and a few bits in the fridge was a very good little extra. Kids were well entertained with a variety of toys to choose from. We just loved it. If I was to add any suggestions to the place then it would be a sign on the gate as there was nothing to indicate it was Rainettes and also as much as I love the old fashioned highchairs they prove a problem as no straps so my daughter would make meal times a little battle as she use to try and climb out! We would certainly look at booking through your company again. I have to say communication has been fantastic from the moment I enquired about the property to after my holiday when I left all my husband's clothes behind! Your prompt responses were very much appreciated. Thank you again and we look forward to using you again in the future.

Mr Graeme Sharratt (2014)

Amazing place, just paradise and gorgeous villages around. Superb villa.

(2013)

Lovely spacious property. Clean and well equipped, although more trays for the smaller oven would be very useful. But that was a minor thing! Pool was very much enjoyed by all. Plenty of chairs and tables by the poolside. Table Tennis was a huge hit with everyone! Lovely grounds, very peaceful :-) We felt very comfortable and had a lovely relaxing holiday.

Mr Peter Austin (2013)

We knew the area and owners/caretakers from previous visit to Favreau (DL16). Emma, the caretaker is a treasure! Only disappointment the weather.

Mr Stephen Padmore (2013)

95% perfect. Would visit again.

Mrs Anne Lynch (2012)

Excellent rural location.

Dr Alison Barnett

A lovely property - nice mixture of traditional and modern features with all mod cons.

Mr Paul Germain
