“Perfect relaxing home from home”
Reviewed June 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Jan and Jim offer a perfect retreat for anyone looking for an away from it all holiday. The accommodation lacks nothing and is more than comfortable. The area is interesting for those days out and if you sample a meal provided by your hosts, you will not want to venture to any other restaurants as the cooking is superb.
If you are a dog lover you will also become very attached to the residents Spoon, Dolly and Ray.
I would highly recommend this property and extend our thanks to Jan and Jim for making our holiday so memorable.

Much laughter, jokes and tales to tell and one more about your adventures getting home! Jim the chef was will be chuffed that you enjoyed your dinner cooked by him. I will go and give the dogs a pat on the head, they are relaxing on the terrace, such a hard life! Look after yourselves and thanks again.

“Paradise”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My wife and I first stayed here in 2008 as honeymooners and have returned every year since (sometimes twice a year), this year with our six month old daughter. I have been lucky enough to travel to many destinations around the world and I can honestly say that this is one of my favourite spots and I have booked again next year. Jim & Jan, who are the owners, are now part of our family. From day one they have been friendly, attentive and are now firmly established drinking partners/baby sitters. The situation of the property cannot be bettered and for a wine lover like myself the outlook of constant vineyards stretching to the horizon is mesmerising. Thank you Jim & Jan for all the memories and we cannot wait to see you both again next year.

“Excellent house and fantastic hosts”
Reviewed May 10, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A lovely house tucked away amidst the vineyards, provided us with the perfect retreat when attending a wedding at a local chateau.

Jan provided us with excellent directions (definitely recommend following these as they were perfect) and the house had everything we could have needed.

Brilliant value for money and I'd highly recommend.

“A perfect spot for a great weekend away”
Reviewed May 3, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The moment Jan responded to my enquiry email I just knew we would have would have a lovely time, Jan could not have been more helpful or welcoming, nor could Jim, Spoon or Dolly come to think of it. A wonderful, comfortable, spacious well stocked Gite surrounded by vineyards with some really thoughtful thoughtful touches. It surpassed my expectations and I would not hesitate to re-book.

“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a wonderful place. Perfect location, perfect house, perfect hosts. Jan and Jim made us feel very welcome from the start, Jan even planned our week for us, suggesting places to visit and booking restaurants for us. The young grandchildren enjoyed the swings and all the toys that were available for them to play with, but Dolly the dog was the real highlight. A big thank you Jan and Jim for everything.

“Wonderful - Couldn't Have Been Better”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Wonderful location and amazing views over the vines. Lovely gite with absolutely everything laid on - v spacious, high quality etc. Nice pool and patio/dining area. Even a little home-made par 3 golf course for a bit of fun with a beer - v popular with our teenager and dad. Jim and Janet are perfect hosts. Cute dogs.We rarely 'return' but this one is so special that we might just go again.....

Lovely to get your review and that your holiday with us at Guillemassot was a success. Jim was extra pleased that you enjoyed his pitch and putt course. He has big plans for the winter to improve his "greens" and a few obstacles, ie trees!. We would be delighted to have you here to stay again, and now you have found our special wine shop you will need to top up stocks. Thanks again.

“A beautiful house and a very warm welcome”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We've just returned from a week's stay in this beautiful place with our three daughters aged 9, 12 and 13. More of a home than a gite, the house and garden are lovely and the owners were very welcoming. The place is equipped with everything you could possibly need, the pool, garden and house were all spotless and I really can't think of anything that could be improved. The girls enjoyed the nearby markets, and the owners (and the neighbours) very friendly dogs. Jan and Jim the owners were amazing hosts and very helpful, especially with recommendations of places to go and things to do. Can't recommend it highly enough.
