Nice place, great pool

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here in the annex with my in-laws, very nice quiet location and as the owners were not there but contactable on the phone whenever needed, it was all very quiet and peaceful. Lovely surroundings. After a thunderstorm we had some water leaking through the roof but that was sorted out as well as an electrical problem we had.

The surroundings are nice, the vilage is great and restaurants etc, all within walking distance are fine. The kitchen is a bit on the small side, i.e. quite rectangualr but other than that, no problems. Recommendable.

Chic, unfussy, private, Lovely!

  • 5 of 5
This very beautiful cottage is attached to the owner's house but we were staying while the owner's were away. As a result it was completely private - no clothes required in the pool, no neighbours to overhear you, but located within easy walking distance of a very charming little town which had a couple of good eateries (one with live jazz). The cottage is beautifully decorated (better than the photos show) - chic, unfussy, with much period charm, and the grounds are huge, ranging from a lovely cultivated garden to meadow-grass beyond and a view of the river. This takes some beating.

Bourg is an historic village surrounded by rolling hills of vineyards with listed houses winding down to the estuary. The Citadel and museum, offer a walk around the ramparts with stunning views of the river and the vineyards of the Medoc wine region and Bordeaux beyond.

Chateaux of the Cote de Bourg are well known and home to some of the best kept wine secrets of the area. Unlike their famous cousins over the these Chateaux are informal and accessible for tastings on a drop in basis. The wines are great and the prices inexpensive.

Blaye,with a huge Citadel fortress ,10 kilometres along the river is worth a visit for its moated ramparts and quaint craft village, all still intact. It too has a stunning view across the river. Here is a small car ferry to take the visitor across to the Medoc region.

Bordeaux, 20 mins away, has great shopping ,galleries,theatre and restaurants - a must.

The beaches of Arcachon and Ferret are 1 hour away. Libourne and St. Emillion 20/30 mins.

Other Activities: wine tasting;

Notes:
This charming cottage was built in 1700 in the style typical of old Girondine farmhouses. It was originally the residence of the vineyard owner before he built the main Domaine house next door. It is part of the original wine making estate of the Domaine de la Croix and is set off a gated courtyard, just a few steps from the village centre of Bourg. The tastefully restored Old Cottage boasts a beautiful beamed salon with original stone floors, open fireplace and wood burning stove with windows open to the garden, pool and river beyond. The original winding wooden staircase leads from the salon up to the 3 beautifully decorated bedrooms, bathroom and separate wc, all with white painted wooden floors and rugs. The kitchen diner combines original features with a contemporary kitchen and modern appliances, from which double doors open onto a private portion of the garden by the pool, with outside dining area and barbecue. There is off street parking being lockable by large gates.
