This was a great property for us and any family. It is adjacent to the owners' winery. Sebastian and his wife were very hospitable and even gave us a wine tasting and tour of this family wine estate.
For anyone's future reference, it is easier to find using the address of the winery Gaec Audoin, which is 'Les Huguets
33570 Petit-Palais-et-Cornemps, France' than the address in the listing as Google maps incorrectly tried to take us 150 km in the direction of the Loire Valley towards Paris. The property is to the right of the winery.
This was a great house and we loved it! It more than delivered on all of our requirements. The grounds are stunning and the patio and garden are a private oasis from which to enjoy them. The furniture was very comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious with plenty of hot water and great water pressure in the shower. The kitchen had everything we needed since we weren’t planning on doing much cooking (note that there is no oven). It was a very convenient base for this part of our trip. There’s a small supermarket less than 10 minutes away and a large Carrefours in Libourne which is less than 20 minutes away. Marie-George and Phillippe were gracious hosts and are loving stewards of their property.
The house was perfect for the two of us and we would definitely rent it again if we come back to this area. We were sorry to have to leave.
That being said, there are some idiosyncrasies that aren’t obvious in the photos and others might find them bothersome:
There is no privacy in the second bedroom—it is an open loft (you can see the stairs in photo 20 of 51) and one needs to go through it to get to the master suite.
The layout of the master suite is awkward. The door from the second bedroom (the white door in photo 18 of 51) leads right into the master bath. Also, there’s no door between the master bath and the master bedroom.
For us, these quirks didn't detract from the enjoyment of the gite.
