The Gîtes

Two holiday gîtes with swimming pool in the heart of the Bordeaux wine region.  On a hill surrounded by vineyards and overlooking the Bastide town of Cadillac, our gîtes have been recently converted from a chai, a French wine store built around 1850.  Bordeaux, with its beautiful architecture, pedestrian shopping and riverside cafes is 30-40 minutes drive away.  The picturesque village of St. Emilion is only 35 kilmoetres away. The vast sandy beaches of the Atlantic silver coast are less than 1 hour away.   We are also in an ideal position for touring and exploring the towns and many chateaux producing the wines of Bordeaux, Medoc, Graves, Sauternes, Loupiac and Cadillac.

Apart from the long hot summers, the weather in spring and autumn can also be a lovely time of year in this region. The sight of hundreds of Cranes flying over in V formation as they migrate north in early March is a sure sign that spring is on the way, and the autumn colours of the trees and vines in late October can be quite spectacular.
