About this property

Property With Private Pool Surrounded By Vineyards . This villa is in a rural setting.

Situated at the heart of the famous Bordeaux vineyards, this property is a real haven of peace. Here you can enjoy sunbathing by the pool overlooking the vines or cool off under the covered terrace whilst also enjoying the surrounding views. Clients often comment on how they have enjoyed quiet times reading a book or just relaxing whilst taking in this beautiful part of the Bordeaux region.

This charming property is located amidst the Fronsac vineyards, 3km from Fronsac village and 5km from the bastide town of Libourne, which lies at the confluence of the Dordogne and Isle rivers.

The villa itself has 3 bedrooms, an enclosed mezzanine with an additional bed and a bathroom on each level. There is ample space for 8 people but the house can welcome up to 6 adults, 4 children and 2 infants. The verdant garden offers plenty of shade and the thick walls keep the property cool in the summer.

From the property, a path leads to splendid viewpoints of the surrounding rolling countryside and vineyards known locally as the Toscane Fronsadaise (Fronsac Tuscany). 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 Arnauton (about 300m) and Earl Vignobles Jean-Bernard Roux (under 1km) where you can enjoy wine-tasting and the owners will be delighted to share their passion for viticulture with you.

The beautiful and renowned wine-producing town of St Emilion, now a World Heritage Site, 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. To the west the long ocean beaches at Lacanau or the sheltered coastline of the Charente Maritime are both an hour and thirty minutes’ drive. Villa Les Vignes is easily accessible via the motorway which is only a few kilometres away and the elegant city of Bordeaux and its airport are just 45 minutes by car.
We recommend no more than six adults in the party as the fourth bedroom is more suited to children.

Please note: There is a small local road that runs along the property and some occasional road noise can be heard in the day usually early morning and late afternoon but not at night.
The owner occasionally and unobtrusively stays in a totally separate studio flat about 10m from the property. The flat does not overlook the property and has a separate entrance but the owner is on hand if required.
Property size: 130m².
