    Hi, I am looking for somewhere nice to stay in the Bordeaux region for three nights with two adult children, four people in total. Is it possible to stay in a Chateaux or Gite on the land for three night July 22nd to 25th of July. Or can you recommend a site suited for short stays, we plan to travel to local towns or sites and would like to have access to a pool.
