Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful french house for a week. What an amazing base camp to explore from! Would love to come and stay again!

Tom & Bonike. September 2019

Our second year at Joli Fleuron and just as much fun as the first. Major water battles in the pool, soaking up the sun, table tennis, archery on the lawn. We boogied at the night market and had lovely meals on the terrace sampling the area’s wines. Hopefully see you next year for round 3!

Wright family. August 2019

We have just finnished a magical two week stay at Joli fleuron. Particualr highlights include dinner on the terrace watching the sunset with a bottle of pink, night markets, swiming in the pool and seeing the Milky Way whilst star gazing!

Tash and Cam. August 2019

So we came back again this year. Once again we spent loads of fun family time by the pool, played loads of badminton and frisbee and barbecued every night. Loved the house again this year and enjoyed some really special happy times. Dare we make it three years in a row?!

Da Silva family. July 2019

The surroundings are delightful, the house is very well-equipped and John and Debbie are amazing hosts. We would truly recommend your villa!

Sue & Steph. July 2019

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Joli Fleuron – we loved it! A beautiful house in a beautiful area.

The Featherstones. July 2019

We have had a great week at beautiful Joli Fleuron celebrating my 60th birthday with family and then friends. Perfect for what we wanted. Everyone has loved it. We will read the word!

We had a fabulous time at Joli Fleuron and probably spent more time in the house because we didn’t want to leave! Managing to provide luxury yet be child friendly – the whole family enjoyed the pool, games on the lawn, movie nights in the lounge and eating and drinking every night. All holidays should be like this! Perfect! We would love to come back!

Wonderful Time
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The house is stunning, a lot of work and thought has gone into the detail of Joli Fleuron.
We had four couples staying as our guests from as far as Australia, Spain and Norway everybody loved the house.
It has a lovely laid back feel to it, the house is very well equipped for entertaining.
Would recommend Durras for the evening food market in the summer, local super market for essentials.
If its your first time driving in France don’t panic, the roads are easy not much traffic and less hassle than the UK life is a slower pace here.
The house is central for St Emillion, Bergerac and a little bit further Bordeaux.

Mark. September 2017

We loved our stay in this beautiful French chateau. The pool was a real hit with the kids, the kitchen and dining a real hit with the grown ups, and the local area a real hit with everyone.

Fabulous house with large pool in great location
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had an amazing week at Joli Fleuron in July 2016. The house was perfect as a base for an extended family get together. The house was beautifully decorated, very clean and with every attention to detail. The surrounding area was beautiful – although we would have been very happy spending the entire week at the house, in the pool and drinking local wines! The owners were very friendly and helpful. We will hopefully be back in the not too distant future.
Jonathan S, July 2016

Perfect Home Away From Home
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
The house is perfect, stocked with anything you could need including a lovely welcome basket & lots of info about local shopping, markets & restaurants. The pool, gardens, views & rooms are wonderfully placed to be able to enjoy your stay. We could have easily stayed there another week. Thank you for the lovely holiday!
