Chez Emmot is a perfect retreat, secluded amongst the vineyards and orchards of the Bordeaux countryside. The large garden has plenty of relaxation space for guests to enjoy plus the orchard and potager provide some edible delights.
The house is located in approx. an acre of land so there is plenty of space for adults and children alike to play, sunbathe, relax kick a ball around etc. We have garden games onsite such as lawn draughts, boule, noughts and crosses, plus balls and badminton rackets for the sporty. There is also an inflatable adult-sized paddling pool for cooling off.
The garden has a potager that we like to keep stocked with veg and fruit which guests can help themselves to if they are in fruit. The orchard has apricots, plums, apples, pears, figs, nectarines and persimmons (need to be bleated before eating!) which guests can pick and eat. The nectarines especially are delicious!
You enter the house on the 1st floor (house built into the side of the bank) and the main living and sleeping spaces are on this floor. There is an open plan, kitchen, dining and living area with log burning stove - ideal for those staying on Wintery nights. A corridor takes you to the bedrooms and bathroom. There are 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin room, bathroom (bath, shower, sink) and a separate toilet. There is an additional 4th bedroom with futon double mattress downstairs. Please note whilst this room is in a contained bedroom with window - it is adjoint to the basement area and is not decorated to the same standard as the rest of the house as yet.
Guests have full access of the house and garden.
There are 3 bikes in the garage plus helmets etc which guests can use.

Muita huomioonotettavia seikkoja
There is a travel cot and a highchair available for any babies staying.
Please respect the house and garden and clean up after yourselves.
No smoking inside the house.
We do allow dogs to stay on request but they should only enter the main living space and not the bedrooms. There is plenty of space for them to roam in the garden but please remove any dog poo from the lawns etc. If you have a pet that is prone to wandering off I would advise supervision as the garden as some low fences and open boundaries into the adjoining vine yards/orchard.
