“The Perfect Getaway!”
Reviewed September 24, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Travelling with 3 of my friends for a 40th birthday getaway, we had planned a nice relaxing trip and found Le Semillon in Minzac. We could not have been happier with our choice. The gite itself is so pretty, set back from the road in the most relaxing and peaceful setting. Just the drive (about 1.5 hours) from Bordeaux airport was one of the prettiest I have ever done, through beautiful villages and stunning landscapes of vineyards and chateau's.
The gite itself is spacious, has everything you could ever need (especially in the kitchen!). It has a very pretty downstairs bedroom with en-suite and doors out on to the patio, then upstairs there are 2 more bedrooms (both with twin beds but 1 better to push together to make a double), and both with their own en-suites also. The outside of the gite is simply stunning, with a lovely pool (really well done with hardwood, loungers, and fenced - if you were to have kids), pretty gardens, and a great wrap-round patio area. There is always somewhere to sit in the sun or the shade.
Mark, who showed us into and around the property was so helpful and lovely, and even offered to put our first order into the bakery close by, to have bread and croissants delivered fresh every morning - heaven!
The property is beautifully situated nestled within vineyards (even having one next door which you can arrange a tasting with - and you must do this - their wines are Stunning! Thanks Michel!!!), however you will need a car to travel anywhere, but it is within a perfect distance to so many places to see. St Emilion is approx. 20 min drive as are so many other pretty towns/villages/gardens etc. There is a great shop selling fresh veg/fruit/bread/meat and other items approx. 10 min drive away, which is also attached to a very nice restaurant.
I could not recommend this holiday/place more highly - even for four 30-something girls or a family it is just a perfect haven to relax and have fun in the sun.
