A Quiet Country House in the Bordeaux region, only 23kms from St Emilion.
As the house is technically out of Pujol, my TomTom GPS had trouble with the address. It did not recognize the street being in Pujol. I would recommend including the postal code (33350) after entering the street address. That worked for me. (Just make sure the location given is only 2kms outside Pujol!) A minor inconvenience.
Everything! What's not to like? Use this as your base when visiting the St Emilion (Bordeaux) wine region!!
In the Bordeaux region, 23 kms from St. Emilion, I believe. Located in the countryside, around 2kms from the town of Pujols (note the S on the end, as there is another city in southern France called Pujol). Lots of lovely shade trees in the back yard with a vineyard across the country lane at the front of the house.
The couple who run the place thankfully spoke English and were always extremely hospitable.
Everything about the room was very new, very clean. Tastefully decorated. My room had a high ceiling, two large windows and a glass door which opened to the back yard (and 2 comfortable lawn chairs).
Although I didn't use it, there was decent sized swimming pool in the back yard. Lots of lawn furniture scattered about if you want a relaxing read.
Unsure how many guests they can handle, but I was the only guest during my visit.
Breakfast was included. There are capsule coffee and tea machines, lovely chewy bread with a block of butter and three types of marmelade. They also had two nice pieces of cheese under glass, which I enjoyed immensely. I was offered, but declined, orange juice.
A beautiful, peaceful setting. Wonderful hosts. I will return next year next year on my annual pilgrimage to Bordeaux during the autumn harvest.
The GPS coordinates were pretty good. They left me just a few meters short of the house along the country road. It was clear which house it was, aside from the modest sign out front of the place.
