“Superb space for family holiday and centrally located for day trips”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had a great week in the area and thoroughly enjoyed staying in the lovely house. We played numerous hours of table tennis and enjoyed the slightly cooler temperatures of the pool as we travelled in late October.
We recommend the house and the area to our friends and family.

“Another perfect holiday at Chez Emilion!”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

If you want a rowdy holiday with club style entertainment and jostling for a space round the pool then this is not the holiday for you. However, if you want to stay in a stunning property where you can stroll around the beautiful grounds with chickens tagging along, take your refreshments around your private pool, have a late night chill in the hot tub or a game of table tennis then this IS the holiday for you. The owners, Lesley and David, are a wonderful couple who are around whenever you need them and nothing is ever too much trouble. The house has an impressive downstairs bedroom with an easy access en suite bathroom, ideal for my daughter who is a wheelchair user. It has everything you need; fully equipped kitchen, TV with English satellite channels and Wi Fi, lots of lounging outdoor furniture and plenty of play equipment for younger children. Because we were so happy relaxing at Chez Emilion we didn't venture far this time (a car is essential though) but we took the tram into Bordeaux which I definitely would recommend but there are many stunning places to visit if you can drag yourself away from Chez Emilion and Lesley and David are always on hand to advise. You can't fail to fall in love with the property but the owners make this holiday destination even more special and I cannot recommend Chez Emilion highly enough.

“EXCELLENT”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My wife and I and our three adult children spent 4 terrific weeks at Chez Emilion. We were looking for a house that easily accommodate us and that meant good sized bedrooms and at least three bathrooms and this place was perfect. It is located about 30 minutes outside Bordeaux by car but the best and cheapest way to access the city is to drive to the park and ride about 15 minutes away and then catch the tram. The property is located at Guariaguet, a small village, and from there we were able to drive to a great many interesting and historic locations. Of course the wine producing area around Bordeaux is reputed to be the biggest in France so that featured a lot in our travel. David and Lesley Proctor were great hosts. Friendly and always available for help or advice. Then of course were the animals that made Chez Emilion a special place. Donkeys, chooks, dogs and cats occupied a lot of our attention. In particular we had a constant companion in Elgar, a beautiful tabby cat. We all miss Elgar but we know he will always have a lot of friends from around the world who have spoilt him just like we did.
Chez Emilion is a perfect place for families or a group of friends. We recommend it highly.

“Outstanding in every way!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Chez Emilion is faultless really, I defy anyone to find it lacking in any way. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom are perfect for guests with restricted mobility or as in the case of our daughter a wheelchair user, The pool and extensive grounds are fabulous and where else could you stay and be able to wander down the garden to feed the donkeys and have the chickens visit you for snacks? Lesley and David are incredibly accommodating and two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet, nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend a visit to St Emilion and catching the tram into Bordeaux, we used the park and ride which cost 3.50 euros for the five of us. Because we had lovely weather we were happy chilling out by the pool but there is also indoor table tennis, table football and a fantastic hot tub. We can honestly say it was our best family holiday ever and the downside of leaving this review is that once everyone else discovers Chez Emilion it might be all booked up when we want to return!

“Wonderful Family Holiday”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This house is a fabulous place to base yourself for a family holiday in the Bordeaux area. Lesley and David are the perfect hosts who will give you lots of practical information on places to go, local markets, restaurants etc. This is usually with a glass of wine next to the swimming pool on your first day (a great way to start!) The house has plenty of room for a big family and a great garden with a variety of amusements for everyone with a swimming pool, spa, play equipment and of course the friendly donkeys, chickens and Elgar the cat.

The kitchen is very well equiped and you can cook up a storm with ingredients from the local markets. The washing machine and clothes line (and dryer if you need it) are all very handy for a travelling family.
