“Absolutely Fantastic Place”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

If you want the most amazing service from the owners, an incredible house to stay in, and an area full of history and obviously wineries, then this is the house for you! We even reduced our time out visiting places and small villages, so we could all get back there, to eat, laugh, drink and relax! The owners could not do enough to assist us during our week and the house (as the owners told us) just loves a heap of people, laughing, cooking and generally soaking up the amazing area. Highly recommend this house for a relaxing holiday or a base to travel around to see so much of the local area. Easy access to the bigger towns and far enough away from roads, to be a very quiet and relaxing! The neighbour was brilliant, giving us tomatoes and capsicums picked straight from his vines! The bedrooms were so comfortable, we had four couples staying there and we all just loved the place!!!

“Wonderful house!”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015
1
person found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed here in October and invited two other couples. The house is really beautiful, well maintained and tastefully decorated.. You will not be disappointed! It is even prettier than the pictures and has wonderful ambiance!

It is ideal for 2-3 couples or a family. Really nice kitchen and we also enjoyed the outdoor dining area. The upstairs master suite and bathroom are amazing. There is also a large bedroom with an ensuite bathroom downstairs, that is attached to a smaller room with two twin beds. There are two more bedrooms and one other bath (other than the master suite) upstairs but one bedroom does not have a closet (which is why the house is ideal for up to 3 couples but you could have more),

Sonia provided great recommendations for activities, day trips and restaurants which were really helpful.

Note-our Garmin found the house with no trouble but both of the other 2 couples we invited got lost using the rental car GPS. It really is worth buying a Garmin and pre-programming routes to the house, activities and restaurants in advance as much as possible.

We would definitely recommend staying here and we are already trying to plan a return trip!

We are so glad you had a wonderful stay.
Nearly every guest has said the house is much nicer than my pictures depict which suggests I am better host than a photographer.
I agree we should add an armoire for the bedroom with the blue corbiere bed. I have had my eye on a hand carved walnut armoire made in the last century that I intend to buy this Christmas & put into that room for use as a closet.
I am glad you & Dave were enchanted by both the house & the region. Thank you for staying at our holiday home.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent 2 weeks this summer and it was one of the best houses we have ever rented. The house is large, really nice and the owner Sonia gave us all kind of tips during our stay. I would definitley recommend to anyone who wants to spend some days in the region

“A small piece of paradise”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We already had high expectations for Bastide St Pierre prior to our arrival but it far exceeded anything we could have dreamed of. We travelled with our 2 young boys and some Australian friends, with their 2 young daughters, who wanted a rural French holiday. Prior to our arrival in France Sonia provided us with some excellent information on the local area and details specific to the property, including information on the closest supermarket, boulangerie, petrol station etc. fantastically helpful.

Well what can we say about the house?! It is a utopian paradise in an already beautiful part of France. Lovingly renovated it incorporates some incredibly tasteful decor with utilitarian necessities making it a real home away from home. The bedrooms are all very spacious and incredibly comfortable with the master bedroom adjoined by an en suite bathroom large enough to have a party in! The kitchen area is simply stunning and we adored cooking large family meals whilst sampling the spoils from our daily trips to the vineyards and surrounding villages of St Emilion. Fully equipped with everything you need, and more, for a comfortable self catering holiday we were all very impressed by the quality of the renovation.

The rear part of the house is quite frankly huge! A massive expanse of lawn area where the children ran and ran and ran and ran and occasionally played the odd game of croquet! The outdoor patio is wonderful and the BBQ area, set a little away from the main house, is set in a tumbledown, but safe, old barn and is a stunning area to eat, particularly at dusk.

The surrounding area is fantastic and the house is ideally situated for the delights of the bustling city of Bordeaux, a one hour drive, the stunning St Emilion, 15 mins drive, and Libourne, 20 mins drive. If you want to venture further afield the autoroute is close by too. Whatever day trip you take, Bastide St Pierre is just the perfect property to return to. You instantly feel at ease whilst you are there and we couldn't fail to recommend this property to anyone. The owners are wonderful and renovated a stunning property into something that is just perfect. Not only that, throughout our stay they were incredibly helpful and provided continued support, even furnishing us with some very interesting history of the bastide.

If we could give this property 6* we would. Simply outstanding.

“Wonderful house in a great location!”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a wonderful time at the Bastide St. Pierre. Sonia has lovingly restored this 1860 farm manor house. The house is very spacious with a large, very well-equipped and modern kitchen and dining area giving onto a nice patio through French doors. The master bedroom upstairs is large and very luxurious and the master bath feels like you are at a relaxing spa. In all, there are five spacious bedrooms, three upstairs and two downstairs, and three and half ample bathrooms. There is also a romantic pavilion for outdoor eating on the corner of the property. There were seven of us and the house accommodated everyone comfortably. The location is also top notch, with St. Emilion just 10 to 15 minutes away. Other points of interest are within easy striking distance, like Libourne (with its fabulous Sunday market) and some lovely restaurants, literally in the middle of rolling vineyards. Sonia was incredibly thoughtful and gracious. She has compiled a mini-guide book with excellent travel tips (as well as all you need to know about the house). She was genuinely eager for us to have a wonderful stay and was always volunteering very helpful suggestions for things to do and places to see. We highly recommend taking day trips to Sarlat and to the Dune de Pyla, both of which are in Sonia’s guide. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and give Sonia and her lovely Bastide our highest recommendation.
