General Description

A family of ducks lives on the pond of this villa in Médoc. Here the beauty of the country life elevates humble things, until they belong in fairy tales. The ivy-covered house has a cottage feeling, with family villa amenities. The living room is all rustic wood beams, stone, and tile - gather round the hearth, or climb up into the cozy loft library.

Outside there's a romantic stone patio where 6 can dine beneath the leaves. The outdoor kitchen is a gem. There's a wood burning bread oven, a barbecue and a 'plancha' flat top grill.
Open a beautiful bottle of wine with dinner - you’ll have plenty, as Médoc is home to 1,500 vineyards. Water lovers can wander down through the gardens to dip toes in the pond, or swim in the villa's private pool.

The beach at Montalivet (14 km) is a short drive away, or you can venture to Le Verdon (30 km) for high sea fishing and excellent seafood at La Pecherie.

If you're flying in, the nearest airport is Bordeaux - Merignac (75 km), conveniently located in the famed Bordeaux wine region.
