About Caspian Flynn
Caspian was brought up in Germany, Lulu was brought up in Cyprus and Jeffery (our chocolate labrador) is a Welsh boy and we all found a most beautiful home in the South of France. Caspian is a Chartered Engineer by background and has worked for corporations in Germany and England. Lulu is a biologist and a qualified teacher as a second career. She also worked for a large pharmaceutical company in England for many years. We have many friends here locally and also internationally and enjoy their company whenever we can.
Why Caspian Flynn chose Vélines
The fact that we already had many local friends around Bordeaux was an important factor for us to choose the vineyards of Bordeaux as our home. This combined with romantic vineyards, pretty villages, enjoyable towns, easy airport connections and the friendly locals made the task of choosing a home in this region simple for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
Kiwi Cottage nestles in the grounds of a completely renovated Maison de Maitre (Manor House) dating back to the 16th century and giving one a sense of history, the beautifully lit pool area at night and the well laid out park make La Gorce a memorable experience. Its architecture oozes the charm one would expect of such an historic property. Completely rural but only 3 minutes from all amenities.

Thank you Caspian and Lulu for the most relaxing stay your property was outstanding. X
Lovely one bedroom cottage. Had everything and more than we needed . Lovely peaceful location . Our hosts were available but also very discreet.
Wonderful stay at Kiwi Cottage
We had a wonderful holiday at Kiwi Cottage. Caspian & Lulu are excellent hosts and were very welcoming of us and our dog, Luna. They were always on hand to provide information about the local area and recommendations of things to do, but were in no way imposing.
The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed, the pool & grounds were beautiful and relaxing. There is lots to do in the local area, plenty of restaurants, wine tasting and places to visit. Local amenities like bakeries, supermarkets and vets nearby.
Overall a wonderful holiday, we would love to visit again!
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!
wonderful stay at Kiwi cottage
What a lovely property in a beautiful part of the world. We were able to relax, drive to everything we wanted to visit, eat out at wonderful restaurants or make our own meals from what we bought at the many farmer's markets.
Lulu and Caspian couldn't be nicer. They allowed us our privacy, yet were available when we needed.
Just as the title says - idyllic - if you designed your perfect holiday then this is what you would end up with !
