Great place for a relaxing family holiday
By Philipp H.Germany on 11-Aug-2018
We spent two weeks at le Pigeonnier with our family (two adults, three children) and very much enjoyed our stay.
The description and the pictures on the website are accurate and give a good impression of the house. The house is spacious. All rooms are nicely furbished and in good condition. The house has all amenities which are needed for a comfortable stay. The bed rooms have nice comfy beds and sufficient storage space. The bathrooms have an average standard and were clean. The kitchen has all necessary appliances and has more equipment than usual in holiday houses. Wifi is working well. The terrace has a nice view over the property. There is a BBQ which we used frequently.
The property is spacious and offers many possibilities. The large swimming pool is great. We also enjoyed the table tennis, volley ball net and space on the lawns to play various games. We were free to pick fruits from the trees which we enjoyed very much.
The owners are very hospitable and friendly. Not only did we get a very interesting tour of the vineyard. We also received many tips, advice and recommendations for things to do and to see.
Overall we can recommend Chateau de la Gontrie for a great holiday in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Fantastic holiday in a wonderful location
By Amanda W. on 17-Jul-2018
A wonderful spot to holiday in with a high standard of very clean and very well equipped accommodation,. A lovely swimming pool set in a relaxing vineyard environment. Relaxed and friendly hosts who make you feel extremely welcome and who are able to provide great local knowledge on best places to visit along with a personalised wine tasting experience on site. There are good local supermarkets and patisserie and Bordeaux is easily accessible from here.
Our family had a fantastic holiday and without a doubt will return in the future. I highly recommend this property.
