The cottage is very well equipped, the pool more pleasant. The calm is at the rendezvous. The owners are really very friendly and available. We will come back ! Franck Z August 18
Our first stay family stay at souchet was a great success so thought we would return for another week.
As expected everything was perfect again, a great addition to the main double room was a very comfortable bed and as before there were plenty of provisions to eat and drink, much welcome after a long journey so no need to faff with a supermarket.
Stephen & Isabelle are great and more than happy to offer advice about the local area and have a great knowledge of local wine.
The pool is fab, sparkling clean and great for the kids. There really is nothing I would change and would highly recommend to anyone. We would definitely go back. Nick & Debbie August 18
Dream house for wine lovers We have booked many holiday homes in Italy, Spain (Majorca), Austria and Germany. However, this gite has exceeded everything in a positive sense. If you are looking for peace and quiet away from the tourist bustle and do not need the unconditional sea, you will not find much better. An above average, equipped house, very tastefully and lovingly restored, in-between the Chateux Vines . A perfect pool (from 2017, very well maintained, 8x4m), within a large well-kept outdoor area. For example, even large pool towels are provided for the pool, towels and bed linen also and can be exchanged. The owners live next door, the house is secluded. They are very friendly and helpful, without ever disturbing or intrusive. All in all a great holiday, in a great holiday home. We will be back. Hans And Isa July 18
On arrival we were greeted by Isabelle and Steve and introduced to an immaculate and very welcoming gite. Isabelle and Steve had thought of pretty much everything to make the start of our stay easy and relaxing - complete with a comprehensive welcome pack which meant there was no panic to immediately shop. They were unfailingly helpful and friendly and all their efforts were much appreciated by us all.
Thank you! We had a very enjoyable stay.

Set outside little village of St Mariens, about an hour from Bordeaux, Stephen & Isabelle's gite is a 3 ensuite bed renovated cottage set in a restful garden and having its own private pool.
Stephen could not have been more helpful answering my queries before we arrived and Isabelle took time out for us to give us a private tour of the vineyard where she works , the Chateau Puynard.
Stephen and Isabelle had thought of everything to make a very pleasant stay- we had a great time and will be back.
Highly recommended! Gayl and Nick June18
Four of us stayed at this very comfortable Gite. We have visited the Bordeaux area many times and this was the best by a long way. This holiday home was very well presented with great attention paid to detail in the décor. We were made to feel very welcome by our hosts, Stephen and Isabelle who simply couldn’t do enough to make us feel at home and were happy to recommend local attractions and restaurants – our favourite was Phileas Fogg in nearby Civrac-de-Blaye. On arrival, we were greeted with an extensive welcome pack and the Gite also contained many of the day to day essentials not always included in holiday rentals. The pool has recently been refurbished with beautiful wooden decking and the Gite is surrounded by vineyards. All in all we had a very enjoyable week at La Grange and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. A huge thanks to Stephen and Isabelle for a wonderful week (in spite of the weather).

This cottage is perfect: full of charm, impeccable cleanliness, ditto for the pool and the garden. Everything is done by Stephen and Isabelle to make you feel good. The number of basic products is impressive, everything is there, from the basket garnished with welcome (rare for a lodging) to the shampoo in every bathroom passing by the charcoal, homemade jam by Stephen, etc. .. The welcome from Stephen and Isabelle in addition to all these benefits made us feel like guests more than as tenants and this makes all the difference. We had a great family holiday and the kids enjoyed themselves in the pool. We will definitely come back to this property again. Do not hesitate for a second, you can go there with your eyes closed.

We had a splendid time at La Grange, Souchet ! Great place ! Having the swimming pool at hand’s reach was just like paradise on demand! Stephen and Isabelle have made this old barn a comfortable, cosy, spacious, good standard and functionnal place, and even more ! considering their concern about our well-being from the first minute of our stay and on. Very thoughtful hosts throughout the week. It was a pleasure to meet them. I highly recommend.

Thank you Stephen & Isabelle for being fabulous generous hosts! We had the most amazing time in your gite, it's beautiful and so well equipped it's like being in your own home. We were provided with an amazing welcome pack of local produce including excellent regional wine! The swimming pool is stunning and the garden too, we spent most of our time lazing in the pool. There's loads to do in the local area but we didn't get round to seeing everything so I'm sure we will be back! Debbie H August 17
