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.

This is the coolest bedroom in the villa which clients enjoy in the summer. French doors leading to terrace with deck chairs, ideal for relaxing in the shade.
