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.)
We have stayed at HomeAway rentals over the last six years. This place is by far the best we have encountered. Jill and Marie-Helene have been fantastic hosts, giving us privacy but at the same time seeing that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. From the minute we walked in the front door we knew we would enjoy each and every day. To save us an immediate trip to the grocery store, Jill provided a bottle of wine, fresh eggs from the chickens (who roam the yard), milk in the refrigerator, pizza and salad, fresh tomatoes, and coffee for the next morning. Located about 20 minutes from Bergerac in the country, this home-away-from home is located close to major grocery stores, lots of hiking trails (extensive maps of places to see and explore are provided), and loads of old chateaux and vineyards (for those who love wine). The house (a renovated barn dated from the mid 1700's) is in immaculate condition, very clean and comfortable in every regard. The pool, although the weather was a little cool this time of year, looked very inviting, and the flowers and garden were a delight. All in all, this rental could not have been better!! A very relaxing visit. Thanks Jill and Marie-Helene. Hope to see you next year!. Best always, Joanne and Dick.
