The house is light and airy and set in an idyllic setting on the river L'isle. With spacious rooms and easy to look after furnishings, making it easy for you to relax. Ideal for a family holiday with fully equipped kitchen and laundry. The exceptional covered terrace, which runs the full length of the house is ideal for outdoor dining and barbeques, playing table tennis or just enjoying the view. A private saltwater swimming pool (10x5 mt and 1.5mt deep)is situated just off the terrace, surrounded by wood decking and luscious planting. A wall surrounds the pool making it secure when it's not in use. There is rich planting down to the garden and river (unfenced), where there are two 2-man canoes available with life jackets (2 adult & 2 children sizes), so you can explore the river L'isle. The house is a perfect setting for that special family celebration.
We occupy an adjoining house and garden which is separated from the main house. We are here if you need us.
From weekly rentals to short mid-week or weekend breaks, Only available outside of July and August. Minimum stay 2 nights from groups of 6 to 12 people, please contact me for more details and prices.

3 families, 6 adults and 6 children aged between 8-13 stayed at this beautiful house for the last week of August. After booking and reading about the house and its facilities we were excited for our visit and we were not disappointed. This house which it tucked away up a private drive really is the ideal holiday accommodation. When you are in the house and its grounds its is so quiet (accept the children running around everywhere!) and it has a really good vibe about it. The house itself is very big and is decorated to a high standard. The bathrooms are modern and the furnishings are of good quality. You can tell that a lot of time and effort has been put in to create an ideal holiday space. There is a book in the house detailing the journey of its modernisation project from start to finish. Jo, one of the owners who lives next door could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. There is a wealth of information on offer in the house and Jo is there too to ask any questions. The facilities are tip top, the pool is a very good size and was used almost every minute that we were in, the children absolutely loved it. The river that is at the end of the garden is accessible with an Indian canoe or a two man kayak that are provided with the house. At some stage every member of our party went for paddle. The outside area is very large and perfect for an evenings eating and drinking. There is a grand dining room inside the house that we did not get to use as the weather was so good but if booking this in a slightly colder time of the year would be very regal for your evening meal. The house is situated in an area that is surrounded by chateaus, there are grapes as the eyes can see as you approach the house. The picturesque town of St Emilion is only 15 minutes away that is a must see on your trip. Overall i could not recommend this house anymore, a must for any party between 8-12.
Nous avons passé un séjour parfait!

Nous avons loué la vieille ferme à coutras début août. Nous étions 6 adultes 6 enfants. Nous avons passé un séjour parfait dans une maison magnifique où tout est pensé pour que l'on si sente bien. Pièces immenses et chaleureuses. Espace nuit parfait : chacun sa chambre et sa salle de bain + literie très confortable ! Et surtout : des extérieurs magnifiques. Piscine très belle et sécurisée. Jardin très beau, imaginé avec beaucoup de goût. Il y a plein de coins pour faire la sieste ! Last but not least : une terrasse couverte immense qui permet de prendre tous ses repas dehors, de passer du hamac à un petit ping pong ! Le top ! Vacances réussies garanties en famille ou entre amis !
An amazing house, with so much charm!

We have rented many houses over the years in quite a few countries and this was clearly one of the very best ones! We immediately felt at home and were very sad to leave. The choice was particularly important for us given that we rented it for a very special family occasion. The house is perfect, very spacious, beautifully decorated, fully functional in all respects, with a splendid terrace and great pool, plus direct access to the river with the possibility to kayak on it. Shops and supermarkets are only a few minutes away by car. Gorgeous St Emilion is 15-20 minutes and Bordeaux less than one hour. The owner and manager of the house, Joanna, is as charming as the house, very friendly and efficient, and responsive to any question or need that may arise before or during the stay. She also provides excellent advice on where to find some services in Coutras. If ever we have another family event in the area we will be sure to rent the house again.
A wonderful house and a great place to stay!

La Vieille ferme Is a spacious house which is beautifully decorated . We were 3 couples travelling around France and we spent 3 relaxing nights here. The house caters for large groups particularly families with numerous bedrooms and well appointed bathrooms as well as everything you could possibly need to cook for large groups, as well as outstanding living areas. Sumptuous couches and a slow combustion stove made for very relaxing evenings. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the garden and in the enormous verandah where we able to enjoy the view of the garden and the river. We would have liked to have had longer to enjoy the activities on the river. The owner Jo was friendly and a wonderful help regarding places to visit and eat. The house is also close to a supermarket and vineyards. The large eat-in kitchen was fabulous ( we didn't even go into the large formal dining room)! We had a wonderful 3 days, the house is amazing and we hope to return another time with our families.
