Teuillac House Rental Photos and Description

Bed and breakfast, two holiday homes.

Traditional stone holiday homes and bed & breakfast close to the Gironde river in south-west France. Located 30 minutes from the busy city of Bordeaux. Vine House vacation rental homes are easily accessible from Bordeaux airport and the A10 motorway. The lovely market town of Blaye is minutes away, as is the Gironde river estuary with a car ferry link to the beaches of the Medoc. Set amidst picturesque vineyards, Vine House offers luxurious Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the main house.

The two independent self-catering child freindly gîtes ( cottages ) with heated pool each sleep up to 8 people plus babies. The house is surrounded by lovely gardens and grounds with a children's play area and a heated swimming pool to keep guests of all ages amused.

Vine House & gites are perfectly located for both short stays and long holidays in this beautiful region. After a busy day spent sightseeing laze by the lovely pool in the grounds.

The local area: Vine House is surrounded by beautifully manicured vineyards - and the area's primary industry is 'viticulture' (wine making). The local vineyard is owned by Yve who will be delighted to show you how the wine is made and - the best bit - offer you the chance to taste it! Bourg-sur-Gironde has a lively market every Sunday morning. It also has a number of excellent restaurants and cafés. Throughout the year, there are fêtes and events to celebrate everything imaginable, such as show-jumping, jazz, salt, flowers, onions, garlic, cheese and asparagus! The town of Blaye is ten minutes away. As you drive alongside the Gironde river, look out for the Roman villa and troglodyte settlement at Plassac. Once at Blaye, the port has a car ferry which crosses the estuary to the forest and beaches of Les Landes.The centre of Blaye is dominated by a magnificent citadel and the hillside fortress stands guard over the town and the river. Blaye has a large market each Wednesday and Saturday

Things to do: The area around Vine House has something for everyone. A good place to start is the city of Bordeaux (30 minutes). You can shop and sightsee or visit gardens and museums. In the evening, enjoy a leisurely supper at a restaurant before heading off to sample the excellent night life! Visiting the city is easy thanks to a park-and-ride system using an ultra-modern tramway.The atmospheric caves at Pair-non-Pair are just 10 minutes away. They date back 30,000 years and are incredibly impressive and moving. Prehistoric carvings and tools have been discovered in the caves and are the oldest ever found in EuropeIf cognac is more to your taste, the town of Cognac is only 50 minutes away. To discover brandy at its best, visit one of the many famous brandy houses located around the town.Overlooking the Dordogne valley, the medieval hilltop town of St-Emilion is 40 minutes away. The pretty town is famous for its wine making, with guided tours available for touring the vineyards and the wine cellar

GITE NEAR BORDEAUX

  • 5 of 5
I don't normaly do reviews but I thought I'd make an effort this time round.

Accommodation
We arrived to be greated by the owners who were very pleasant and accommodating. They showed us to our gite and it was lovely and clean; large wooden beams, big wooden dining table, and all modern comforts (decent WiFi connection) and lovely rooms.

Family and Kids
It is a lovely and impressive place. The kids have a play area, a mini golf and some donkeys to keep them busy and of course there is the large swimming heated pool to pass the time away.

Finance
It has a true french feel with English hosts and the price is right.

Overall
this place is definitely worth visiting and not far from Bordeaux and Blaye by car.

QUIET PEACEFUL AND SO VERY ENJOYABLE

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Grand Dad and then met Sara we knew that we had made the right decision to make a reservation here. So much so that the first question we asked was do you think that the four of us can stay another night!

Thankfully Sara was able to accommodate us and went out of her way to be helpful and give us advice. Our room was huge with a double bed and a day bed ,separate bathroom and tea and coffee making facilitates in our room as well as the use of the family room downstairs. We were able to enjoy our wine and dinner sitting out in the lovely garden and swim in the pool albeit that time of year a bit chilly but very refreshing. The fig trees were laden and we were told to help ourselves, once again washing done for us.

The next evening Sara had the perfect place for us to go out for dinner and was even able to suggest somewhere to stay when we reached the Dordognes.

We had a wonderful time here and especially want to thank our hosts Sara and Patrick. Would we recommend this property of course , would we come back yes if we had the chance

Thank you so much

GREAT FAMILY HOLIDAY IN THE FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Merlot gite as a family of 5 adults and 2 children, the remainder of our family were in Pinot gite next door. Both gites are extremely well maintained with lots of rustic charm and perfect for large family holidays. Sarah and Patrick were really lovely people and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The pool was very welcoming after a day in the sun, the crazy golf and boules provided were a nice extra. The outside space made the evening barbecues perfect. I would love to return one day and would highly recommend them. Our first night was spent in the B&B across the courtyard and I would recommend that highly too. The rooms were clean and spacious. The gites are approximately 40 minutes from St Emilion, 15 minutes from Blaye and Bourg and approximately 40 minutes to Bordeaux centre. Wifi access was also a bonus.

PERFECT FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE EXPERIENCE IN BORDEAUX

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful property in real french countryside near so many fantastic wineries and close to St Emilion and Bordeaux. We loved this property, the gite (Pinot) we stayed in was very spacious, the grounds were fantastic and the facilities (pool, mini golf, kids' playground and spacious gardens) were wonderful. The kids loved the donkeys and other animals, they really enjoyed getting eggs from the hens and playing in the gardens. The gite is spotlessly clean and so rustic, it's gorgeous. I loved being away from the tourist areas and feeling like we were in the quiet beautiful countryside. My walks in the morning were bliss. It was very relaxing and we were sorry to leave. Sarah and Patrick are really lovely and there if you need them but otherwise let you enjoy their property. We would love to return and highly recommend it.

PERFECT CHILD FRIENDLY HOLIDAY HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We had a really wonderful week in Merlot Gite. Very spacious and well equipped, gardens and surrounding area even nicer than in the pictures, huge amount of outside space, ideal for children to play in (ours are 2yrs & 4yrs, but would be good for older children too). Owners very helpful and friendly. Only possible negative, though it didn't affect us as the neighbouring gite was mainly empty when we were there, but due to wooden floorboards throughout you could hear people walking around next door and upstairs quite a lot and this may bother some people if not all in the same party. Ideal location for 2 families, or family and grandparents to all stay together. Thanks for a great holiday will defintely be back!

The surrounding area has something for everyone. There are sporting activities for the energetic, history sites to visit for the less energetic, and the beach resorts. Bordeaux with its trendy river frount, cobbled alley ways, antique shops and café life. A visit to Cognac’s brandy houses is a must, for the kid’s aqua land and the zoo at Royan covering 30 acres & 1600 animals are great days out, and don’t forget the wine. As if you could! with a chateau around ever corner, free tastings and very reasonable prices you’ll be spoilt for choice. Bourg-Sur-Gironde is five minutes away. Built on a rocky outcrop, this fortified village overlooks the picturesque gironde estuary. As you explore the village, at every turn you find impressive buildings with beautiful architectural features. There is a lively market each Sunday morning. Bourg has a number of excellent restaurants and cafes, and throughout the year there are fêtes and events to celebrate everything imaginable.

Other Activities: Wine tasting.
