About Joanna Palmer

I have been in France since 1992 and we have lived at La Vieille Ferme since 1997, we spent 2 and half years renovating and now have a fantasitc house for family holidays. We Live next door with our 2 girls and 2 cats. So why not come and see us!

Joanna Palmer purchased this farmhouse in 1997

Why Joanna Palmer chose Coutras

We where looking for a project and somewhere to live but most of all we thought that the location on the river and just round the corner from all that lovely wine was a must have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Le Vielle Ferme with a group of 10 adults from Dallas Texas in late May for about 10 days. The property exceeded expectations in every way. They have done a great job on the re-model and it is furnished nicely with French country touches like glazed confit pots, cool art and lovely antiques. A great dining room table was the perfect setting for long and wonderful meals. The kitchen, almost worthy of commercial status, was stocked very well which made making large meals a pleasure. The rear of the house was a grand affair with the large porch and garden spilling to the river. It was a perfect venue for bouls and barbecue. Jo was a great host with tips of how to best explore the area. We also did the cooperage tour which quite frankly was one of the trip favorites for us as well. The overall location was great. About 15 -20 minutes to St. Emillion. Coutras only blocks away had a wonderful market and the market in Libourne was amazing. My favorite post market endeavor was shucking a dozen Arcachon oysters and opening a bottle white Bordeaux, heaven on earth. Again what a wonderful find and I can’t wait to get back. We have self-catered all over Italy, France and Spain and this was one of our best finds. Thank you Jo, you and your family are in our thoughts.

Thank You,
May 2013

Perfect for a family holiday or celebration party.

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful property with spacious outside areas (good shaded area) alongside the river. Excellent sized rooms - great feeling of space. Owner on hand to help with local information and extras - we were celebrating our Father's 70th birthday and a cake was awaiting our arrival.

The board games and jigsaws could do with updating but the boules and table tennis outside were fine. The pool was great but no shallow end brought some challenges for younger swimmers.

Excellent location to explore Bordeaux and only a short distance from the beautiful town of Saint Emilion.

Nearby town of Coutras has all you need by way of markets and supermarkets.

Would recommend and visit again!

Better Than We Hoped

  • 5 of 5
What a find in one of god's most beautiful and lush corners of his blue earth. We stayed for 10 days at this jewel of a find with a nice group of friends. There was a total of 10 adults who came to this area because we love the wine and food. I ended up loving Le Vielle Ferme as well and the property around the home. First let me say the house is restored beauitifully. The furnishings and decorating really complement the French Country theme. Glazed confit pots, old butcher block island in the kitchen a wonderful dining room table for meals from the bounty of fresh foods from the local markets. The back of this house is amazing with the yard spilling to the river and a great area for bouls tournaments and barbecues Perfect location for visiting St. Emillion and other areas. Not far from Bordeaux and the coast. Coutras is a nice little townwith a super market. Oysters from Arcachon and the local whites? I'm in heaven. The owner Jo was such a lovely host. She set up a tour of a local and important barrel making factory. It was one of the high lights of the trip. Truly amazing and educational. I can only say that the well stocked kitchen is perfect for cooking wonderful meals and entertaining. We have self catered all over Italy Spain and France and this ranks as one of our best finds. And again, thanks Jo you really made it special.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
We've just enjoyed the most perfect early-autumn break in this wonderful house.

It's so spacious, beautifully situated, decorated and equipped, and the sunny weather meant we could spend a good deal of time out in the fantastic terrace and gardens, which run down to the river.

Jo and Martin maintain the highest standards, and are the perfect hosts - friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

Thanks for everything - it was wonderful

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a fantastic 14 nights holiday at this lovely house. It has so much space, we were one of three families but we never felt overcrowded (12 of us in total including 6 adults, 3 teenagers and 3 children). There is so much space it is great. Lovely pool , hammock, tables tennis and canoes of which we used all. Jo the owner is very helpful and friendly but does not interfere in any way. It's a great house for hide and seek!!! We visited St Emilion and a wine chateau which was recommended by Jo and purchased some lovely wine.
Lovely fluffy towels provided and no end of cooking utensils and crockery. Would recommend to anyone, thanks Jo and family

My experience at La Vieille Ferme, Coutras

  • 5 of 5
I would most definitely recommend this holiday home to anyone planning to take a large family or large group away to France. It is especially well suited to families with children. I have just come back from 2 weeks in August there with my husband, our three children and my sisters and their fanilies. In total there were 6 kids, aged from 2 - 8 and all were entertained all of the time. The pool was, perhaps the greatest attraction, and there were many lilos, arm-bands and water toys available to use. The toy cupboard was also well-stocked and there were plenty of adult board games for us to use too. We also used the kayaks many times for exploring the river and it is so calm we swam in it on several occasions. There are fishing rods that we also used.

I found the villa clean, safe and full of character and the owner very friendly and helpful. There is so much space inside and outside which was just perfect.

The surrounding area is very picturesque and we enjoyed trips to St Emillion and Bordeaux. The impression I got was that there would not be much of a night life nearby, with Coutras not being particularly interesting, so, if you are after this sort of holiday then, the villa may not be in the perfect location. However, there are plenty of lovely restaurants a short drive away. I enjoyed a romantic evening meal by the river in Libourne at La Guinguette with my husband and, we ate a tasty lunch there again with the family the next day.

All in all, a fantastic holiday, and would love to go back. Thanks Jo.

Beautiful house with everything you could need.

  • 5 of 5
13 of us (6 adults, 6 children) and a dog stayed here for two glorious weeks in August 2011 and had the time of our lives. The pictures don't do the house justice as regards how spacious and beautifully finished all the rooms are. We were lucky with the weather and so wiled away our days by the pool, on the canoes, playing table tennis or swinging in the hammock. Saint Emilion and Bordeaux are pleasant day trips a short drive away and Jo (owner) is on hand to offer hints and tips for other excursions. A truly lovely stay, would definitely reccommend for large familes wanting a comfortable but stunning house to make a memorable holiday.
