We have a substantial library of books, games, and DVDs available. All rooms have central heating, TV, and DVD players.
Wine cellar: We use our wine cellar for tastings in the evenings. Other than that, this characteristic and cool space has a pool table, table tennis and can be used to enjoy a bottle of wine with other guests. Our honesty bar is also a great way to discover wonderful Bordeaux producers and enjoy a bottle with friends and guests.
Entertainment: Your hosts are passionate about wine, well connected with the local wine producers and, given the opportunity, they will lure you down to the wine cellar and off to visit a château to explore, learn, taste and celebrate the essence of Bordeaux. Aside of wine tastings and château visits, we also arrange boat trips, golf, tennis, horse riding, fishing, hiking, cycling (on a dedicated 32 km cycling path 3 minutes from the villa) and, if needed, baby sitters and assistance with shipping your purchases home.
It is our greatest pleasure to make your stay with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Please feel free to ask for assistance and for any further information you need. We will do our best to deliver!
