About the property

Historic seven bedroom mansion with pool, amongst the vineyards near Bordeaux

A beautiful historic villa that faces south towards the Dordogne River, called "Domaine de la Croix de St Michel". Built of Bordeaux stone in the 18th century, the Domaine has been lovingly restored recently. The house has six bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living rooms and two kitchens. The seventh bedroom is in the pretty eighteenth century pigeonnier. There is a sunny pool, almost two acres of lawns leading down to the neighbouring vineyard, and a stone barn in which the Domaine's wine used to be made, and which now offers table tennis and table football.

The Domaine is on the outskirts of Bourg, a pretty riverside village set amongst vineyards with restaurants, shops and an excellent supermarket. The mediaeval city of Bordeaux is 15 miles to the south. St Emilion, a UNESCO World Heritage site, with ancient streets and Romanesque churches, is 45 minutes away. Bordeaux airport can be reached in 35 minutes.

About James Gardner

We (James and Eileen) live near London, and have two teenage children. We work in the city, but our home is on the edge of the countryside in Hertfordshire.

We've always always had a passion for the south west of France, and spent many holidays in the Bordeaux area. Eventually we decided to take the plunge and buy a place here. It's been a lot of work, but a lot of fun too!

James Gardner purchased this chateau / country house in 2015

Why James Gardner chose Haute Gironde

We fell in love with the beautiful aspect of the villa, and the way the mature gardens roll down towards the vineyard and the river. We wanted to be close to Bordeaux, for frequent visits to this majestic city, but we also like being deep in proper wine country. The villa also feels part of the local community; it is only ten mins walk from a lively village with restaurants and boutique shops.

The house is on the outskirts of Bourg-sur-Gironde, a beautiful mediaeval village port with restaurants, shops, a village market and a good supermarket. Bourg is well worth an explore; it still has stone fortifications installed by the British 800 years ago. Five miles up the road is the fortified citadel town of Blaye, with famous 16th century battlements and a ferry across to the Medoc wine area and the Atlantic beaches.
