Villa overview

The 17th century home is made up of two residences, giving large groups of guests private quarters whilst having areas to dine together by the secluded pool.
The comfortable furniture will fill your holiday with relaxed elegance.
Overlooking the Dordogne river, this tiny town of Pujols is sat upon a hill top, giving it spectacular views over the surrounding area.
With its narrow rows of medieval houses and gardens, you will be utterly charmed by this area.
With a local restaurant down the road and a short cycle ride to the market at Castillon la Bataille, there is so much to explore.
Some of the worlds best wines have been produced in the local Saint-Emilion, a UNESCO world heritage site.
Bordeaux is less than an hours drive from this property, where you will find yourself at the heart of the wine region.
Along the way you can visit the many wineries along either the Dordogne or Garonne rivers.

The main house has two bedrooms, one on the first floor with an ensuite bathroom and one which opens onto the garden and contains an expansive ensuite shower room.
There is a huge, fully-equipped kitchen/breakfast room, an elegant drawing room opening into the garden and a dining room which seats 16, all with open fires. In addition, there is a contemporary studio-style annex that overlooks the pool. The annexe contains two large double bedrooms (both with ensuite loos and a shared shower room).
The Independent Gite has two double bedrooms with a shared bathroom, kitchen and living room, overlooking the magnolia courtyard. There is a separate entrance to the gite from the road for added privacy. The gardens include a swimming pool, covered dining area with a salle d'ete that comes with its own kitchen and intimate courtyards. There is a pool table in the salle d'ete and two bicycles in the garage. There are also a inbuilt BBQ and a portable one.

Pujols is centred in an area rich with historic small towns, picturesque villages and beautiful chateau. Castillon la Bataille is seven minutes away by car (well worth a visit for the Monday market), with Libourne (20 minutes away) having all major retailers. Beautiful Saint Foy Le Grand is 15 minutes in the other direction, and is renowned for its quaint streets, old houses and traditional market every Saturday.
Our personal favourite, though, is the hilltop village of Gensac, just 10 minutes away. Walks and cycle tracks radiate across vineyards in all directions and you don't need to go far to make some lovely new discovery! Typical relaxing holidays might include a visit to Chez Sylvie, a wonderful, informal restaurant/cafe on Pujols Square (a mere 12 euro for a sumptuous 4 course lunch, with wine!)
La Poudette restaurant just a short walk away down the hill - Michelin starred, this relaxed & informal rural retreat attracts visitors from miles around (and we are only minutes away!). For the quality of the food, it's amazing value. It's only a 12 minute drive to the memorable caves of Rauzan, and an exploration of Saint Emilion wouldn't be complete without taking in its narrow winding streets, ancient cathedral and many nooks and crannies.
Coastal & Beaches
The property is only five minutes' drive from a large freshwater lake with a beach, swimming and bar/restaurant. Arcachon (approximately 90 minutes drive away) contains some beautifully long, sweeping beaches and great surfing is located on the Atlantic coast.
Visitors to the region really have to see the "Dune de Pyla" – Europe’s highest sand dune, and a climb to the top (with optional picnic!) is a fantastic way to spend the day, and the views from the top are breathtaking. Visit the impressive lighthouse nearby, enjoy Aquadome or take a boat trip to really enjoy the coast from a different angle - and don't forget the many, many amazing local seafood restaurants!
20 mins away you'll find the Teynac and Cameyrac golf courses, and for the expert golfers Chateau des Vigiers near Sainte-Foyand and The Medoc courses (just north of Bordeaux) are less than an hour away.
