Part of a large wine estate in the Bordeaux region near Fronsac, this newly renovated country villa with heated, salt-water pool enjoys spectacular views over extensive vineyards, the river Dordogne and the picturesque village of St Emilion.

The undulating countryside around this property is absolutely idyllic and this villa is one of the best placed to enjoy it. Tall floor-to-ceiling glass doors allow maximum exposure to the light and the relaxing pastoral views. Enjoy local wines as you dine al-fresco under the covered terrace, amid the very grapes you are imbibing! Parties of up to 12 people will find abundant space and all modern comforts at this newly refurbished family villa with pool, with 6 individually appointed ensuite bedrooms, air conditioning throughout, wireless internet, toys and games to keep the youngest amused.
The region offers wine lovers almost limitless opportunities to indulge their passion. In fact Domain de Fronsac is ideally positioned to explore the region's best wineries and chateaux. Ancient Aquitaine - which is the wider area encompassing Bordeaux - is also known for its bastide towns, fortified castles, Renaissance gardens, prehistoric caves and miriad of rivers whose clear waters are ideal for canoeing, kayaking, fishing and picnics along their banks. Nearby Bordeaux is known as La Perle d'Aquitaine, famed for its stunning architecture and abundance of bars, shops and restaurants, namely within the Saint-Pierre district and along the entirely pedestrianised rue Sainte-Catherine. Summer Son et Lumiere festivals are a particular highlight. To the west, the sandy beaches of the Bassin d’Arcachon bay from Cap Ferret to the Dune at Pyla-sur-Mer provide a great day out on the coast.
