The luxury property
La Pignarderie lies amongst the vineyards of 'Côtes de Castillon', near the pretty village of Belvès de Castillon , just only 10 minutes away from the mediaeval site of SAINT EMILION. This XVIII- XIX century Property, is divided in two 'Girondine' houses or' Maison de Maître' :the main Girondine and the guest Girondine. These typical wine-growers houses have been ,very sophisticatedly and tastefully restored by French designers, in the XVIII, Century historic french style, finished with a high quality of decoration, professional regard for appropriate fabrics and materials.La Pignarderie offers you a splendid holiday location with the wonderful heating swimming pool surrounded by secure fencing,perfect for the children,and the sun-trap with panoramic views over the vines to the Dordogne valley and the Périgord.

The property consists of two separate attached houses with six large bedrooms and five bathrooms, some with tubs and separate showers. The description was accurate and the owner provided me with a layout prior to our arrival. The main kitchen, breakfast table, dining room and lounges were spacious, clean and well furnished. There are several outdoor tables, chairs and umbrellas. The pool is very nice, unfortunately the constant rain didn't allow us to enjoy it. Anne-Laure's husband, Olivier, was present on the property in a separate apartment, and he was readily available to quickly handle any minor problems we experienced and to give directions and advice on local events. The TV room was a great place to sit, drink Olivier's wine and watch the Euro 2016 soccer matches. Wi-fi was fast and reliable.
The adjacent village, Belvés-de-Castillon, is quite small; however, there is an incredible restaurant in the chateau of Claud Bellevue. They have three rooms, but will take reservations for dinner if you don't want to cook at the villa. The best boulangerie is in the main town of Castillon, just a few kilometers down the hill. There is also a very good market there on Mondays and several large food stores. A car is essential, but Castillon also has a train station where you can catch the local trains to St. Emilion, Libourne and Bordeaux. Trains are the best way to get into and out of Bordeaux as the traffic is worse than Houston's.
I highly recommend this property for any large group looking to spend time in this beautiful area just 10 kilometers east of St. Emilion. Because of the layout, smaller groups may also find La Pignarderie to be the perfect place to stay.
This is a wonderful location for wine tasting, with the most prestigious CHATEAUX like Château Ausone or Château Cheval Blanc under 10 minutes away!
