Bordeaux centre is approximately 15 minutes drive, Saint Emilion 40 minutes.

This is the ideal base from which to explore South West France. Located in the region of Aquitaine consisting of the Gironde / Dordogne / Lot et Garonne and are considered to be one of the most picturesque areas of France.

The gently rolling countryside is a pleasure to explore, with excellent roads winding their way through fields and vineyards. Perfect cycling country!

Towns and villages in the area hosts the many festivals and events throughout the year.

The charming city of Bordeaux, with its neoclassical architecture and a reputation for fine red wine, is located in the southwest region of France and is surrounded by green vineyards, mountains and the ocean. The area, which is steeped in art and history, is well situated for family holiday or a romantic weekend at a Bordeaux property.

From grand French chateaus to a quaint gite, Bordeaux accommodation can be found in a variety of sizes to suit any requirement and budget. If you don’t like the idea of a self-catering holiday rental there are bed and breakfasts in Bordeaux that will allow you to leave the domestic duties to somebody else. The wide selection of holiday cottages and farmhouses around Bordeaux France, gives holidaymakers a taste of authentic French charm. Holiday rentals in Bordeaux France make a great base from which to explore the area and enjoy the many opportunities for recreation and relaxation.

You can spend your Bordeaux holiday exploring architectural treasures, including Palais Rohan and the Grand-Theatre, or you can visit a Bordeaux wine museum, follow the wine trail and pamper yourself with a vinotherapy spa treatment. From walking, cycling, and horse riding to bird watching and fishing, the opportunities to enjoy the countryside are endless.

Villa des pins – wonderful
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
A superbly appointed house with a warm, clean pool in a quiet neighbourhood. Pretty garden, well-fitted kitchen, comfy beds etc. Everything good about this location, we loved it, and would certainly return if we get the opportunity.

Robert P. Aug 2017

Peaceful place
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“This was a lovely peaceful place and the garden and pool were exceptional. From Tracey who helped with the booking to Gladys who owns the house we were very well cared for. A private tour of Chateau Smith Haut La Fitte was a highlight and we enjoyed touring the area. Thank you”

Joanne S. July 2017

We stayed at Villa des Pins in May 2017, with our friends and our disabled son. The house is beautifully maintained both inside and in the garden. It is well equipped and was very clean and comfortable. The two ground floor rooms each have separate walk in showers and toilets which was ideal for our son, and very accessible. The upstairs room was equally charming and well equipped with en suite. We paid extra to heat the pool as we were quite early in the season which paid dividends. The pool is very child safe and was really warm. The owner, Gladys, lives next door which is reassuring. She is very friendly and available but left us alone. The house is situated with easy access to the Bastide towns to the east and the coast to the west. Bassin D’arcachon, Bordeaux, Saint Emilion are must see places. All in all a wonderful holiday. Thank you.
W Bond. May 2017

A lovely warm welcome from Gladys and thank you for the food and wine. This is a great place to stay and fabulous home, which is well equipped and a beautiful garden. We can recommend the Bordeaux tourist bus tour, great audio covering the history of Bordeaux.. The zoo is a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours although small, very clean and some beautiful animals specially the pandas.
We would highly recommend this beautiful house and great area and would love to return at some time in the future.
The C Party, November 2016

Well appointed villa in good location
★ ★ ★ ★ 
Modern property, well maintained by very welcoming owners who live next door. Nice attention to detail in provisions on arrival, collection of useful cooking ingredients to avoid buying. BBQ used a lot with starter quantities of charcoal and lighters.  Advice pre-visit on wine tours useful, proximity to Chateaux Smith Haut Laffitte a real bonus, lovely property, great setting and tour. Useful notes sent out beforehand on restaurants, local services and so on. A great start to our holiday planning. Pool well kept and great to relax, or travel into Bordeaux, or tour around vinyards. St Emilion visit a must. We hired bikes, delivered to the property and collected afterwards. Gite we stayed in the following week in the Loire had bikes provided. Walk to Boulangerie, Boucherie each morning, almond croissants a lasting memory! Overall an excellent venue, charming host, excellent location and facilities.
Mike, July 2016.

Everything you need!

“We were 5 adults travelling together. We received a very warm welcome and were taken through the house and shown all the essentials. The house was great – 5 adults and we all still managed to have our own space. Being able to cook our own meals and enjoy the garden and pool was a bonus. The house is very well appointed, clean and in a leafy quiet location.  We would highly recommend this as a base if you are visiting the region.”

Property was excellent and the owner Gladys was very friendly and helpful – if we needed any information regarding what to do locally Frederic was on the ball and provided this quickly. A visit to the Smith Haut Lafitte wine bar for lunch is a must.
Stuart C, UK. March 2016

We had a lovely relaxing week at the villa. Villa was in a lovely quiet location but still only 20 mins from Bordeaux. Villa had everything we needed. Kids loved the pool which was heated. Gladys was very friendly showing us around the house when we arrived. We had requested some shopping for when we arrived as it was late arrival. Gladys did brilliantly. She even got sweets for the kids. Would definitely recommend.
Roddie Family, Scotland. October 2015

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 remodelled 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 neighbouring 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.

Beautiful property with lots of light and air. A relaxing week among pine trees and beautiful gardens and a great pool. Really well equipped kitchen and convenient to get out and about as long as you had a car. Gladys was a great help and gave us several locals’ tips only problem was – too much to do and not long enough to do it!!
Sue M. UK. September 2015

Wonderful, fully furnished, fully equipped house. Definitely will recommend this place. Sad to leave.
Sonia R, UK. Sept 5th – 12th 2015

What a wonderful place to spend a holiday.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Gladys is amazingly helpful. In easy reach of Bordeaux ( re-commend the trams!), plenty of vineyards and many other sight seeing location sin easy reach. Having lots of time to relax by the pool and eat al fresco.
All the facilities you could want to make it a memorable stay. Thanks
Sue MC K. Suffolk, UK. August 29th – Sept 5th 2015

We have had a great holiday visiting Bordeaux city ( recommend markets), local vineyards, Châ-teau 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.
Amanda & John F. Oxfordshire, UK. August 22nd – 29th 2015

Visit the vineyards and go wine tasting, we discovered some excellent wines. Go out to Arcachon coast, lots of fabulous restaurant «  sheds » that serve amazing seafood. Beautiful Villa, we BBQ’d every night and enjoyed the wonderful garden. Thank you we’ll try to come back !
Sarah H. London, UK. Aug. 15th – 21st 2015

Thank you very much for a fabulous holiday, the pool was a huge success with the children. We will be back…

Thank you for sharing this part of the World with us.
The F. family, London UK. July 11th – 18th 2015

We had a wonderful stay . The house is very comfortable 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.

Quality Villa in an Excellent Location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa des Pins. From the moment we arrived it was apparent that the pictures matched the reality (which is not always the case!) Located close to Bordeaux city but tucked away in the countryside in the middle of some quality vineyards. We had planned lots of trips but ended up spending most of our time enjoying the Villa , Pool and surroundings. The villa owner Gladys was there to greet us with a lovely welcome pack and guidance on the workings of the villa – which is spotless and well equipped. Worth a visit.
Liam D, Ireland, July 2015

​Gladys, Some of us had an early start this morning so we didn’t get to say thanks, house was lovely, left some comments, happy for you to use them in promoting the villa. Regards
Liam F, UK. 27 June – 4th July 2015

Many thanks for a very enjoyable week.
Went to chateau Smith Haut Lafitte for interesting tour and lunch afterwards. Visited city a number of times but spent most of the time enjoying the house itself.
The house is very well equipped, the pool area is fantastic. The pictures on line reflect the reality unlike many other experiences we have had.
Gladys made us very welcome. Thanks again.
Liam D, Ireland. June  20th – 26th 2015

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved every minute of our stay in Bordeaux.
Toured St Emilion and loved all the French Food and wines we tasted. The pool was so nice. Traveled to Arcachon and also saw the big sand dune. Loved downtown bordeaux’s rich history and landscape. Glady’s is so charming and very friendly. Thank you again.
Aimée P, Atlanta, USA. May 27th – June 5th 2015

Thanks for everything. We’ve rented this house for our wedding. The house was very welcoming, beautiful and perfect.
Thanks for all the little details which have made it a memorable stay.

Séjour très agréable à la Villa des Pins. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à la Villa des Pins dans un cadre relaxant, tout près de Bordeaux. Située dans un écrin de verdure, la maison est lumineuse et aménagée avec goût. Bien équipée, elle permet la convivialité. Accueil chaleureux de la propriétaire. Nous recommanderons sans aucune hésitation la location de cette villa à nos familles et amis.
Laure D, France. April 2015

“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 ”
Vladimir B. Washington, USA. September 2014

Such a warm welcome and comfortable stay. Thank you for a fantastic week. We have really enjoyed staying and will take home lots of fond memories of swimming, building dens around the swings and creating our own olympic games on the lawn ! We really enjoyed the wine tasting at Smith Haut Lafitte and the spa and restaurant at the Caudalie hotel.
Thank you Gladys and family for such a warm welcome and comfortable stay.”

Neil A. Milton Keynes, UK. July/August 2014

We had a lovely stay at Villa des Pins. The house and garden are beautiful. We enjoyed the tranquil setting and the heated pool…that was perfect for the kids. 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!
Harvey R. Bristol, UK. July 2014

First visitors!  A lovely villa and fabulous swimming pool! We all had a great time.  Thank you Gladys & family!
