Location:
Maison du Vins provides a great base to explore the famous vineyards and Chateaux of Bordeaux – St Emilion is a 10 minute drive away and Bordeaux itself is around 45 minutes away.

The coast and famous dunes of Aquitaine are just 1.5 – 2 hours away.

The property is close to great restaurants and bars plus a variety of activities including two 18 hole golf courses and boats on the lakes making those family days out even more adventurous.

There are also lots of local markets- there’s a food market for every day of the week, now that’s impressive!

It is also a short drive to some big hypermarkets, plus the local village Lussac has a number of shops for food, chemist, garage and even flowers.

Wine

Maison Du Vins is perfectly placed for planning some adventures in wine – exploring, tasting and perhaps stocking up in one of the world’s most famous wine producing regions of Bordeaux. As an area it is constantly evolving, and as Andrew Jefford the wine writer wrote, “it is now a region of experiment, ambition and grand stylistic diversity”. And Maison Du Vin sits bang slap in the middle of the action.

So a leisurely 10 minutes drive to the picturesque town St Emilion and the magnificent Grand Cru Chateaux of the Right Bank. Angelus, Ausone, Petrus among the greats to name check and book tours (but you may have to sell the family silver to buy in any quantity!). However there are so many other Chateaux to discover, many are more reasonably priced. Knock on the door of our local neighbour just outside Lussac called Chateaux Lucas to buy great wine direct from the grower.

In recent years some Chateaux have made it impossible not to visit, with their own restaurants serving great food alongside their wines within their grounds. Visit Trolong Mondot and La Dominque. Both on the edge of St Emilion. They are surprisingly well priced, good food, stunning locations, but still a little undiscovered. So go, but keep it a secret between us.

And whilst on the subject of furtive forays, explore the wines of Castillon. Described as Cotes de Bordeaux, but don’t be fooled as the area hides many sparkling gems. There’s a great bar restaurant at St Gene de Castillon owned by a well known Brit called Laithwaite which offers a wise and well edited selection to sample with lunch or take away. Mrs Laithwaite makes a superb and affordable champagne by the way.

And finally, there’s the Left Bank wines of Bordeaux to discover. A little further away, about 45 minutes drive, and a whole new chapter.  Where to start? Best to rebook another holiday at the house and we’ll supply the second instalment…

Arrival time is after 5.00 p.m. Arrival out of hours can incur in an additional charge.
