Villa overview - owner's description

Set the famous Bordeaux vineyards, this villa is a real haven of peace. Whether you enjoy sunbathing by the pool overlooking the vines or cool off under the covered terrace whilst also enjoying the surrounding views or simply read a book the house has everything you would want.

Charming property located amidst the Fronsac vineyards, 3 km from Fronsac village and 5 km from Libourne.
The villa itself has three bedrooms, an enclosed mezzanine with an additional bed and a bathroom on each level. There is ample space for eight people but the house can welcome up to six adults and four children. The garden offers plenty of shade and the thick walls keep the property cool in the summer which is most appreciated.
Just 150m away is the Chateau Franc Capet, a family run vinery since 1850 where, by appointment, you can visit and try the strong, ruby red wine they produce. Also within walking distance is Chateau.
The famous wine-producing town of St Emilion is a short 20-minute drive away. Further east you can easily discover the highlights of the Dordogne including Riberac, Perigueux and Bergerac, all a little over an hour’s drive distant. The ocean beaches of Lacanau or the sheltered coastline of the Charente Maritime are both an hour and thirty minutes’ drive. The property is easily accessible via the motorway which is only a few kilometres away. Bordeaux and its airport are 45 minutes by car.
We recommend no more than six adults in the party as the fourth bedroom is more suited to children.

We had a lovely time in Marie Hélène’s villa. The ‘big’ event in Maransin was a great success. We were also able to use the villa to host a few dinner parties for family members. We loved the setting with the vineyard sweeping across the valley and up to a splendid Chateau on the horizon. The attractive and well stocked garden around the villa was charming, with the outdoor ‘verandah’ a favourite setting for our evening meals. The weather was hot and sunny so we also made good use of the swimming pool. Notable difficulties and issues were: A hand washing basin and ventilation are needed in the downstairs loo The wifi didn’t work all week – on the leaving day when Marie Hélène was ‘at home’ it suddenly was working! The lighting in the upstairs shower room is inadequate The mobile ‘ping-pong’ tennis table was previously damaged but with the help of my son-in-law we were able to set it up and use it Nevertheless we enjoyed our sojourn in Villa Les Vignes, dining outside, playing table tennis with guests, and cooling off in the swimming pool. We hope this feed-back is not regarded as ‘nit-picking’. It is meant to be helpful and to suggest improvements.

We booked this villa through website and thanks to Christophe it was a very smooth process and all our questions and requests were met with friendly advice and replies including directions to the villa. The owner Marie made us feel very welcome and showed us round the villa and the outside areas and greeted us with a few treats including a lovely bottle of local red wine. The villa has character and is very tastefully decorated. It is very well equipped including the kitchen and easily accommodates 6 adults – the size of our party – but could sleep a further 2 adults. The outdoor patio and dining area is spacious and is shaded for most part of the day allowing great usage and the pool is set in a lovely little garden with gorgeous view over the surrounding vineyards. Marie had on our request kindly organised a wine tasting evening at the neighbouring Chateau Franc Carpet where Eric and his wife hosted us with wines and food. Overall we had a fantastic holiday in a lovely villa in a great location and we would not hesitate to book again given the level of service and friendliness.

Your whole process from start to finish made me feel that nothing was too much trouble. Marie was so lovely and helpful, and managed very well with our ‘Franglais’ communication. Being around on site was invaluable, and her help and knowledge made our stay so brilliant. The road at the side of the property does create some noise, especially early morning. There’s no getting around that, but it was a little noisier than anticipated. We knew there was no air conditioning, which was fine, however I did ask if there was an electric fan to cool the room our granddaughter was sleeping in. I think that might be a useful addition for when it gets very hot. The house itself was quirky and full of character, however, there were a lot of ornaments around and we were a little worried about breaking anything. Perhaps put some of her more delicate items away? We managed to avoid breaking anything during the week, which we were relieved about! We will recommend your site to friends, and your attention to detail makes the whole booking and travelling process so easy. Thank you, it was a holiday that made many happy memories.
