We were 2 couples who stayed at the property in Saint-Avit-de-Soulège for 6 nights after flying into Bordeaux airport (1 1/2 hour drive to property) from the US . All of our pre-visit communications and directions to the property with Angela were timely and accurate. On site check-in, assistance and orientation from Bob and Evelyn was excellent. The accommodations were better than represented. The kitchen was very well equipped and able to support any of your culinary activities. Bathrooms, showers and bedrooms were modern and comfortable. The out-door grounds are well manicured and beautiful with nice seating areas to enjoy extended views of vineyards and wildlife. The property's setting is very quiet, located off of narrow country roads. This is a rural setting. Grocery stores and gas stations are located within 10 - 15 miles of property. There are several small resturants in the area but we chose to cook in the evenings and not drive these roads in the dark. Property is convenient to Pomeral, St. Emillion, Bergerac, Libourne (45 min.)
The Kiwi Cottage is a magical place in a beautiful setting. Perfect for our week of wine tastings on both the Right and Left Banks. The cottage has all the comforts of home, surrounded by the beautiful French country side. The hosts are wonderful and communicated with us perfectly for the rental, arrival, and during our stay. Our visit was too short and we look forward to returning!
