This beautifully restored country home is set in flower filled gardens and is the private winter residence of a family of antique lovers. Its thick stone walls ensure it remains cool in the hot summer months and it has a large enclosed sunbathing lawn with mature trees, a fish pond and even a lovely summerhouse. To the rear is the superb swimming pool with high walls surrounding the patio area, making this a great sun trap. This area, the Gironde, is one of the most important and prestigious wine producing regions of Europe, boasting countless world renowned appellations such as Côtes de Blaye, Bourg and St. Emilion. All fabulous places to tour around and try new wines. Nearby is the fortified Citadelle de Blaye, while the more adventurous can climb the massive dunes at Pyla (Europe’s highest), or watch the surfers in delightful Cap Ferret or Arcachon.
