Customer Reviews

Come to enjoy and relax. With space and privacy, fun and wonderful kitchen we certainly enjoyed the best of French rural beauty and culture. There was so much to enjoy from canoeing to horse riding, walking and visiting local houses or just relaxing by one of the pools.

U Kway
The countryside was superb which matched the weather. The farmhouse was the sort of place most people can only dream of, the attention to detail of the renovations were superb and totally in keeping with with the area. The appointments throughout the complex were excellent and created an atmosphere of home away from home comfort.


Capella
It is often difficult to find a place large enough to accommodate big groups but this place is truly something special.
 The approach to the farmhouse is impressive enough but the interior is even more so. As each person took their bags to their room they thought they had been allocated the best bedroom but it turned out they were all superb. The soft furnishings against the rustic furniture were luxurious and what a bonus to have so many bathrooms.
 But the heart of the house was the kitchen where everyone could get together sharing in food preparation or just having a glass of wine(or two!) There was an endless supply of crockery, glasses and cutlery something other places often overlook...
This was a lovely relaxing break in a beautiful part of France. Looking forward to our next visit.


A great place to stay for all ages. The house is very well equipped with plenty of chairs, sun loungers crockery cutlery etc. The main house is large with lots of rooms downstairs for everyone different needs. The pool area is clean and well thought out. The garden area is a really nice safe place for children to run free. But the best thing about the place is owners who are on site to help when needed but never interfering. They are so easy going and welcoming. How they mange to be so laid back about people staying in their beautiful house is amazing. Well recommended.

S Martin
We were a total of 11 people and the combination of House and Farmhouse made our time in the french country side truly enjoyable. The house was big enough we all could get together easily in one room for breakfast, dinner or just drinks. Or, we could retreat to our own rooms or one of the many ante-rooms for quiet time. We enjoyed the pools, walking to the patisserie, riding bikes and drinking wine. The kids had plenty to explore and the adults had plenty of places to be adults.
 We used the property as our home base while we drove down to Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux, drove up to Saint Georges and it worked perfectly.

J Taylor
The property is huge and very well equipped - even for 2 families. The kids spent their time in and out of the pool and playing on the trampoline in the grounds. With the kids content, the adults were all happy relaxing by the bbq. The house is quite remote - on the plus side there's no noise apart from the natural sounds of the countryside and the views are stunning - but it does mean you need a car to go anywhere. The owners are the most hospitable people you could meet and truly enjoy having guests to stay. The surrounding area is very pretty - there are some lovely quiet and clean lake beaches within 15 mins drive. We would strongly recommend this property to families or groups of friends who enjoy relaxing in lovely surroundings.

B Wright
From the moment we arrived, we were met by the hosts and made to feel welcome. They almost make you feel like part of the family, they couldn't do enough for us. The accommodation was excellent, comfortable and clean, and the location was fantastic. So much space. Surrounded by miles of countryside, yet not to far away from towns and villages, for whatever provisions you need. 
It's the nicest gite we've ever stayed in and we'd certainly go back again.

E Benson
We had an excellent holiday at Mas Challignac which is very well equipped for large groups. We were three families including teenagers and twenty somethings and their parents. The large kitchen, dining room and terrace meant we could cook and eat together. The owner was really welcoming and helpful. Very good welcome pack. Lovely peaceful location in farmland on the outskirts of a village. Highly recommended - hope to go again.

CLR
The house is well equipped with everything you need and the secluded pool areas are perfect for large families. We found the table tennis table invaluable especially when it rained. The house has so much character that everyone had fallen in love with it by the end of the week and all the girls were asking why we haven't got a house like this! The good news is that we are going back with the girls and some friends. Great place... loved it!!

We are 4 families with kids of various ages and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay.The house and gardens are huge so there's plenty of room to be all together or find a quiet spot if you feel the need. The hot tub was a big hit with the kids, they spent the week in a pack skipping from pool to hot tub to trampoline to watch a dvd and back to hot tub etc etc- it was difficult to get them away for a day out! Our hosts Gail and Mike were fabulous, very welcoming and helpful. They gave us loads of information and help with booking things and left a couple of folders with useful info on places of interest, boat trips, markets, restaurants etc.
