Although they concentrate mainly on weekly rentals, overnight stays are possible here (particularly outside of the months of July and August), and it is worth knowing about for its five high-quality bedrooms, plus salt water pool, tennis court and lovely gardens, close to the vineyards of Pomerol and Fronsac. Run by a friendly Irish couple, who have spent the past few years renovating the estate, this is popular with visiting UK wine trade. There is an ‘honesty bar’ and free Wi-Fi.

Useful information: Rooms: €110-€150 including breakfast (but they prefer weekly rental over the summer months).
