“Lovely stay in a beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 10 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay in Andy and Richard's cottage, and the welcome could not have been friendlier. The cottage is fully equipped with everything required for a holiday away; it was a home from home and the garden and BBQ were used constantly. The free arrival meal was a wonderful treat after too long in Bordeaux airport and the bakes throughout the week from Richard, such as a courgette provencale and apple crumble cake, were fabulous - we've cooked both since getting home! The wine tour with Andy is an absolute must; his knowledge and humour only added to the experience (together with a lovely lunch). St Emilion itself is a dream location as are the surrounding villages, and of course the wine.......... Many thanks Andy and Richard for making us feel so welcome. We hope to return.

“Absolutely fabulous accommodation!!”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Just got back from 2 weeks relaxing at Vines along with our 2 dogs and it was everything we hoped for and more. Our cottage had EVERYTHING we needed and was super secure for our 2 escape artist terriers. We literally opened the gate and walked out into the vineyards, heaven! Perfectly placed with local shops and bistro within walking distance and only a short drive to a huge supermarket. Andy was very helpful and informative about all the local happenings and Richard spoilt our waistlines with his fantastic cakes! We were very lazy and just relaxed but have already booked for 3 weeks next year and are determined to do more exploring of this incredibly beautiful area. Highly, highly recommended!

“Beautifully decorated and fully equipped”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished and comes fully equipped, everything has been thought of. The location is very peaceful, with your own garden and terrace, yet the nearest village is a genuine 10 minutes walk and has a very nice restaurant. The bakery is a genuine 5 minutes drive at another nice village which has more nice restaurant. Large supermarket is a 10 minutes drive away. The hosts are very friendly, extremely helpful and we believe it is extremely good value. We will certainly book again in the future.

“Excellent cottage/apartment/gist near St. Emilion; we loved it.”
Reviewed 18 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My wife and I are recently retired and decided that we would like to spend one to two months in the Bordeaux area of France. Impressed with the many favorable reviews for Vines and Roses, we decided that these cottages were worth a closer look. Fortunately, we were in Spain this past October (2016) and would have a chance spend a week at Vines and Roses after our Spain tour ended. This would give us a chance to check facility out personally, and we were glad we did because we had a marvelous stay.

We arrived late at night and a delicious meal awaited us including a lovely bottle of local wine, French bread, cheese, onion soup, and beef bourguignon. It was all delicious. We spent the next week getting to know as much as possible about the area. We found that there are so many things to see, we felt we only had time to scratch the surface in our one week stay. Moreover, Andy was extremely helpful from first to last with excellent local information and a fun sense of humor.

We could not have asked for more from our accommodations. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed was very comfortable, the guidebooks in the cottage were very helpful, and due to a late harvest, the grapes were hanging heavily on the vines only a stone’s throw from the front door. The cottage was well stocked with necessities including some laundry soap that my wife claimed got her clothes the brightest they have ever been. All in all we had a great time and are currently planning our return for a much longer stay.

My wife and I would give Vines and Roses six stars, but five stars is the highest allowed, so our rating will only show as a five. Vines and Roses truly exceeded our expectations.

“Beautiful accommodation in stunning surroundings”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Wonderfully equipped property, stylishly decorated with a perfect private garden area. The pool area is pretty and well equipped with sun loungers and parasols. Surrounded by hectares of vines and many wine chateaux this is a peaceful retreat but only a 15 minute stroll from the nearest village. Larger towns are only 10 minutes by car. Lovely helpful owner, Andy, thoughtfully provided a comprehensive welcome pack and several delicious treats throughout our stay. I would thoroughly recommend this property.
