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 qualified biology teacher and 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
The 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. Surround by vineyards but only 2 minutes drive from all amenities. Easy access to Bergerac, Bordeaux and St Emilion.

Tranquil, comfortable and relaxing
Our stay was exactly what we were looking for, Caspian was helpful, and respectful of our privacy.
The facilities were superb, what more can I say, we would recommend this property without hesitation.
Amazing stay - highly recommend it!
This is a fabulous holiday cottage. The location is great (easy to reach Bergerac, St Emilion, Bordeaux, Entre-Deux-Mers), the outdoor pool is amazing (even better than the photos) and the cottage is extremely well appointed. Caspian, the owner, is extremely helpful and did everything to help make our stay so good. Would love to think we will return!
Using Home & Away was simple & we had direct communication with Caspian the owner before our flights and during our stay via texts which was very reassuring. The property is gorgeous with everything you need & Caspian is very helpful, provided us with maps & info about local area. Beds are comfy & the pool area is wonderful.
Hazelnut Cottage is the finest and most luxurious gite we have ever stayed in. Situated in a the grounds of a large country manor, complete with privacy, total quiet and a beautiful swimming pool. The gite was spacious and luxurious being tastefully decorated and having every appliance and comfort including a large TV and DVD player Very comfortable beds with lovely linen. Our hosts Caspian and Lulu couldn't have been more charming or helpful. There was no list of endless rules on display (so irritating in other sites we've rented) The area is quiet and peaceful yet close to villages with restaurants and markets. We can't recommend it highly enough .
Oasis of Comfort
We had a delightful stay at the Hazelnut Cottage. The property is comfortable, very clean and well-maintained. The host is gracious, helpful and respectful of your privacy. The setting is very tranquil and a great spot to relax, yet close to lots of attractions. We would definitely stay here again.
