Romantic Gite & own pool, on hillside nr Saint Emilion with stunning panoramas

Family-friendly villa in Pujols with outdoor pool
Welcome to this lovely, relaxed Gite in its very special setting. Here you have commanding views down over the sweeping vineyards below, and across the Aquitaine plain towards St Emilion.

Awaken to the sun and idle up the lane to the village deli for bread (4 mins). Enjoy your croissant by the pool and plan lunch at the charming bistro in the village square.

Tonight there is a local rose for aperitif on the lower terrace and then a barbecue on the lawn as everyone relaxes into the holiday . . . . and then becomes breathless as the incredible sunset reveals from the special vantage point.

Forget your watch, and let the chime of the Abbey set the pace.

And beyond today? Wonderful walks, cycling (4 bikes are yours to use) and exploration from this comfortable base. The Dordogne river is just 5km away and the area is rich in wine chateau (endless tastings!), idyllic villages, historic towns and many local activities (eg caves, canoeing, ballooning, golf).

The "Anciennes Ecole" is packed with traditional French character, yet has new and modern amenities (eg 2 ensuites added new in 2016, refurbished bedrooms, TV, DVD, WiFi etc). It's also very private, being gated and with a walled courtyard. A huge and rambling garden stretches off down the hillside.
Guest accommodation at this villa offers private pools and fireplaces. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit, bidets and hairdryers. Televisions come with DVD players. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board. Housekeeping is provided on request.

Rustic old schoolhouse/farmhouse in great location. Has everything you need in a location with vineyards all around. Lovely Abbey next door with bells hourly (except during sleeping hours) - quaint and not too loud. On edge of town of Pujols - sleepy town with one nice restaurant. Beautiful views!! Owner communicates well. For an off the beaten path holiday, this was fantastic!!
Stayed 7 nights in Sep 2021

4/5 Good

Picturesque family stay at the old schoolhouse
The house had lots of character and beautiful views from the top of the hill. It's right next to an old church which is worth visiting, but fair warning- the bells go off very loudly every morning at 7am and periodically throughou the day which wasn't super fun to discover. The village is full of charm and close to the larger Saint Emillion and Castillon, and there's a big supermarket nearby. We enjoyed the proximity to Lac de la Cadie which is great for swimming and picnics and only 3 euros for entry. The rooms at the house were spacious and the beds very comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and the outdoor area was cosy and perfect for dinners. The swimming pool was enjoyable and the pool robot cleaner was a nice touch. It offers lots of privacy and space, and overall was a great place to relax, overlooking all the vineyards and chateaux. We were pleased to find that there were automatic hand sanitising dispensers provided as well. Only minor drawback was the amount of cowbebs and insects in the house when we arrived- the house was generally clean but hadn't been dusted probably since the last guests stayed. We recommend bringing plug ins or citronella candles to help ward off the mosquitoes and critters!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Pujols and our stay at the Old Schoolhouse. The westward evening views over the bucolic countryside to the sunsets were truly divine. On those few evenings when the weather did not allow us to enjoy the garden, we found cozy solace from the wood burning stove in the living room, accompanied by a glass (or two) of the local wine. Laurence and his onsite team were great! Highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

An amazing place to stay! Beautiful views, fantastic pool, great village

5/5 Excellent

True French character, great for larger groups and families, excellent pool
We've just returned from a stay here in Pujols, and really enjoyed this property. It has plenty of space for up to 10 people - would be ideal for a couple of families holidaying together. There were 6 of us and we wanted 4 bedrooms and there was ample space here. Parking was very easy outside the property (car absolutely essential), and easy to access with very good communication from the owner. It had everything we needed for our stay, beds were clean and comfortable, good sized kitchen. Yes, it is next to the Abbey, which means that you have stunning views but also that you are woken at 7am with the ringing of the bells (didn't bother us, but you do need to be aware that they ring every hour up to about 10pm). The pool was excellent, a good size - a bit cold for me, but the kids were hardy and used it every day, even though the May weather was very changeable and we had some impressive thunderstorms. The village is very, very quiet- has a good shop and local restaurant but only open during the day mon-fri. Pujols is a good base for exploring the region, but you do need to get out and about if the weather is dodgy. We explored St Emilion, Bordeaux, Bergerac, Eymet and visited a couple of Chateau's (Chateau de Bridoire was a favourite of the kids). All we would have liked would have been more sunshine - but hey, you can't guarantee that in May.
