If you are looking for a holiday home in the Southwest of France, La Vue Des Remparts could be the perfect place. Located next to a UNESCO World Heritage listed village, enveloped by vineyards and just 50km away from the city of Bordeaux, this stunning home is a great base for a trip with friends or family.

As you approach the home you will pass the village ramparts and picturesque vineyard covered hills. The house fits seamlessly in to this landscape with its traditional farmhouse-style exterior hailing from the 1800s.

As you step indoors you will find yourself in a modern, whitewashed living space adorned with art work and filled with tasteful antiques which complement the age of the home. In the living room and the study there are feature fireplaces which are ideal for a winter break. The open-plan kitchen and dining area is a fantastic social space which opens out on to the garden and has all of the appliances you will need to cook a delicious meal. The owners have really gone the extra mile to make guests feel comfortable with touches such as air conditioning and a piano available.

The five chic bedrooms can be found on the first floor. Each room has either a king or queen-sized double bed, a desk and en-suite bathroom with hand glazed tiles. The bedrooms also benefit from amazing views of either the gardens, vineyards or the village walls. To ensure a great night sleep your room has sound proofing and crisp white cotton sheets.

The beautiful garden surrounds the house and is a lovely place to spend a lazy afternoon. There is over half an acre of outdoor space here, with lawns, lush planting and a number of seating areas. Spend the day swimming in the private, heated pool or relaxing in the sun before cooking dinner in the outdoor kitchen area. The candlelit, covered pergola creates the perfect atmosphere for a special evening meal with your party.

You do not have to travel far when you need to pick up some groceries as the closest amenities are just a stone’s throw away in the village of Saint-Émilion. This medieval village is packed with historic buildings which line the atmospheric streets. Since it was founded in the 8th-century, by a Monk called Émilion seeking refuge in a nearby cave, the village has been popular with visitors who first started to visit because of Saint-Émilion’s miracles. While here you can also try one of locally made macarons which have been baked to the same recipe since 1620! Many visitors stop here to explore the picture-postcard village with its 12th century church and defensive walls and because of the world-famous vineyards and the three classified-growth wineries which surround the village, with four more just minutes away. Make sure to visit one of the local wineries such as Château Ausone which offers half day tours and wine tastings, you will come away with knowledge on how these amazing wines are produced and maybe a bottle or two to accompany dinner. 

If you wish to explore further afield then it is just a 50km drive to the bustling city of Bordeaux. Maybe you wish to head to the coast; why not try the beaches of Arcachon bay such as Plage Suzette which is 98km away and well worth the trip.

Located close to the Dordogne River in between the of the cities of Bordeaux and Bergerac you will find the villa in the quaint medieval village of Saint-Émilion. With amenities just a few steps away plus plenty of vineyards, walking trails and charming towns to visit, this is an idyllic base for your trip the Southwest of France.

The house looks out over endless vineyards which belong to three classified-growth wineries. This area has been producing wine since Roman times and is the oldest wine-producing village in the whole of the Bordeaux wine region. If you would like to find out more about the history of wine making or just taste some delicious samples then you can book a tour with a local guide or take a half day trip to one of the nearby estates.

The nearest eateries and shops can be found just meters from the villa in the gorgeous village of Saint-Émilion. The village and the vineyards have been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site and this is a wonderful place to have so close. If you need to pick up some groceries there are a few shops here as well as a great selection of restaurants. Whether you would prefer hearty local cuisine or would like to dine at a Michelin starred restaurant such as Logis de la Cadene, there is something here to suit all tastes. The town is also a fabulous place for an afternoon stroll, wander around the cobbled streets which open out on to pretty town squares. Make sure to visit the Monolithic Church which was created from just one piece of stone in the 1100s, head to the top of the bell tower for breath-taking views.

This area of Bordeaux is a hilly, rural area surrounding the river Dordogne and dotted with lovely towns and villages. Another place worth visiting is Castillon-la-Bataille which is a town 12km away. The town has a lawn beach at the side of the river which is popular with tourists and visitors alike, here you can try out water sports or just sunbathe with a good book. History lovers will enjoy spending the day here as the town is famous for being the location for the final battle in the Hundred Years War way back in 1453. In the summer months you can come to watch a live re-enactment of the battle. The sets and costumes for the show are amazing and there are hundreds of actors involved in the performances which take place twice a week in July and August. Aside from the re-enactment, visitors can see the Saint-Symphorien church, the museum and the imposing town hall. There are also lots of shops and restaurants in Castillon-la-Bataille.

If you wish to see a different side to the region then why not drive to the coast for a day trip. The closest beach on Arcachon Bay is 98km away but there are lots to choose from. You can also visit the much-loved Dune du Pilat which is a little further down the coast, this is Europe’s tallest sand dune at over 100m high and also backs on to stunning forests and a great beach.
