What we like about this property

We love that the chic renovations and inviting personal style of this farmhouse also includes a fun, family friendly vibe. Simple country living and tasteful contemporary character make this a great blend. 

Description

This renovation makes the best of this early French farmhouse and transforms it with a bright, modern update. 

Simple and minimal, the house feels contemporary and artistic while still keeping it’s country charm. The earthy Travertine floors, whitewashed walls and deep blue color blocking give it a rustic and modern flair and a neutral base that showcases the eclectic collection of art and mismatched decor and furnishings. Classic and vintage modern silhouettes and pieces take it from plain to chic.

The open-plan gourmet kitchen includes state-of-the-art appliances and eat-in dining for up to six. 

With three bedrooms and three baths, the two story house includes one ground floor bedroom that allows for kids and parents or groups to enjoy personal privacy.

The centerpiece of the house is the outdoor pool and gardens that also feature a spacious deck and BBQ area for entertaining and alfresco dining in a vibrant garden setting. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, flat screen TV/DVD/satellite entertainment system with Bluetooth audio. Books and games, Petanque  and Croquet court, dart board. Fully equipped for babies (cot, highchair, baby monitor, toys, books and DVD’s) Baby sitter on request. AC in all bedrooms. Housekeeping and laundry facilities. Private parking. Private chef and wine tours available. 

AROUND

Situated in one of the most prestigious wine producing regions of France, the villa sits in an ideal section of Bordeaux that’s close to the countryside as well as the city center. Less than an hour away from UNESCO World Heritage Site St. Emilion and coastal playground Cap Ferrat, it’s also just a two hour drive to Biarritz.

    Thank you for an amazing week in this beautiful villa. Lovely welcome from Gladys who couldn’t have been more welcome and charming. Enjoyed Place de la Bourse by night and the Dune du Pilat early evening- amazing views.
    Our boys ranging age from 10 to 19 years thoroughly enjoyed a few wows at the Aqua Park 33 near Mios. Lovely holidays memories.

    Wonderful place to stay in Bordeaux!
    We were three couples in our 50’s and spent ten days in the comfortable, well located and newly remodeled Villa des Pins Grand Cru. Each couple was able to enjoy the comfort and privacy of their own bedroom and bathroom. We were able to share breakfast every morning as well as late afternoon happy hours with music and wine in the comfortable, modern and very well equipped kitchen/dining room or the wooden deck in the charming patio. 
    The house owner, Gladys, is as nice, accommodating and helpful as an owner can be. Not only did she welcome us with a smile, a wonderful bottle of wine and a box of exquisite chocolates but she also offered to and washed our towels and bed sheets halfway through our stay. 
    On our first day we encountered the only negative moment of our entire 18 day vacation which would have been much worse if it wasn’t for Gladys. After dropping off our luggage, refreshing ourselves from a three and a half hour train ride from Paris to Bordeaux and picking up a rental car next to the train station, our car broke down in front of the driveway of the house as we were getting ready to head back to explore and have dinner in Bordeaux. 
    Gladys, who leaves next door, noticed we had been trying to move the car but were not able to do so. She came out, called and helped us communicating with the car rental company, then when they said they did not have any large cars to send us at that moment she put pressure on the company to send a car to take us back within an hour. When the car showed up, she went with two of us to the car rental company to “make sure we would be taken care of properly”. When we arrived, she argued with the lady at the counter for them to provide us at the same rate with a top of the line Mercedes Benz passenger van, which was more expensive but the only one available. She got it for us and we were able to save what would have been a wasted rest of the day and next morning.

    Even though our stay was short and we had a lot planned in our busy scheduled, when we were home, we also managed to enjoyed morning street walks among several of the neighboring vineyards as well as our three minute drive to the nearest “boulangerie” to pick up fresh baguettes. 

    We will come back to the Bordeaux region and when we do, Villa des Pins Grand Cru will again be our home away from home. Can’t wait to see Gladys’ with her happy smile waiting for us again.

    We have had a great holiday visiting Bordeaux city ( recommend markets), local vineyards, Château LaTour Martillac. Recommend trip to Arcachon and Dune du Pyla – great views over the bay. Trip to St Emilion was perfect lovely hilltop tower with plenty of restaurants.
    Villa des Pins is very pretty, well equipped and provided us a good base to relax and tour the area. The children loved the swimming pool and the inflatables, as well as playing boules.
    Thank you Gladys for having us o stay. This is one area we would like to explore more.

    We had a wonderful stay . The house is very confortable and enjoyed all the local wineries, especially Smith Haut Lafitte and the restaurant at Les Sources de Caudal.
    ST Emilion was wonderful too. Our kids said goodbye to every room and the pool. It was wonderful.
    Gladys was beyond helpful! So nice to be with someone so accommodating and kind.

Bordeaux is a very nice city which I recommend for a day trip. Gladys, the owner, was very helpful – giving us information about the right places to eat and to visit. A great place for real holiday and right outside Bordeaux. Thanks!”

    We (2 adults + 3 kids) had really great time at this place, one of our best vacations definitely. I would say that this is a perfect place to stay with kids. Very quiet, clean, conveniently located and very well equipped. Heated pool, plenty of table games, DVD with all popular cartoons, swings and a slide on backyard. Our kids had a lot of fun time. Pool is excellent, very clean with various equipment for kids to play and for adults to relax. Location of villa is also very good. It’s surrounded by grape fields with Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte in a walking distance. There is a decent supermarket, bakery and other shops just within 5 mins to drive. So we had a lot of wine/cheese/local food tasting. Villa has BBQ ready for you to use so you can enjoy steaks or sausages as well. Bordeaux is just 15 mins away by car, there was really no problem with parking in the city with all paid parkings around. So you have easy access to restaurants/shops. For wine lovers it’s a perfect base to explore Bordeaux and visit different appellations/chateaus. You’re already in the heart of Pessac Leognan and everything else within an hour to drive. Go to St. Emillion, Medoc or Sauternes, whatever you prefer. Also I should mention proximity to Archachon which is a “must visit” place from my perspective. Atlantic ocean, bay, pine forests, oysters/seafood and white wine. We couldn’t even mention any downsides of this place. It’s really great and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It’s like having your own house in Bordeaux for a week
