We have lots of lovely reviews but here is a small selection.
“A truly special place to explore the area around Bordeaux; the house was the perfect place for our three families to base ourselves for a week of relaxation. Saint-André-et-Appelles is a small but well located town, quiet enough to enjoy but with easy access to all required amenities. The house itself was gorgeous and impeccably clean; we in particular appreciated the provision of sporting equipment which meant that all the children spent most of their time outside in the garden or on the amazing tennis court. Extremely highly recommended, we will definitely be back!”
"Super house for large groups - so much room to do so many things. A lovely safe pool and a really large outdoor dining and relaxing area outside, facing beautiful sunsets and sparkling night skies."
"Visited this property with 11 other friends and had an amazing five days. The house itself was even better than expected and the photos do not do the space justice. The swimming pool and tennis court were both used a great deal, as was all the outside seating space."
"La Gravouse is a wonderful place to relax with friends and family. A short 4 min drive to Sainte Foy La Grande with a restaurants and shops made practical task simple. The setting is amazingly peaceful and the house itself simply amazing. The children were more than entertained with the archery, tennis courts, boules, swimming pool, and more!"
