This gite is very close to a train station to take you in to Bordeaux and has a few restaurants that are within a 10 minute walk so you don't really have to have a car, although we did. It was a half hour drive to St. Emilion and Bordeaux. The place was spacious and clean. Very quite spot in a good location. Everything was great except for the Wifi, we had problems with it the whole time we were there.
