Perks for the Parents

On the edge of the vineyards in Artigues, just outside Bordeaux, this pretty holiday cottage includes a private pool and garden cabin. Fifteen minutes’ drive to the east of Bordeaux, the house is on a road that leads straight to vineyards, with the village of Artigues a 3-minute drive away. Use it as a base to explore the wine region, the beaches and delights of the Archachon Bay, or the city itself. The garden cabin has an extra bedroom and suits a nanny, teenagers or grandparents who may need extra privacy.

Why Kids Love it

There is a playful atmosphere at this little cottage, which includes a lovely garden and sheltered 13x4m swimming pool ideal for kids. The house is on 1 level and is set up well for a family stay. The garden cabin is a great space for play or to offer privacy (and a fun night’s stay) for older children. The living room includes a piano and a TV. Bordeaux itself has some great ice cream shops, fountains to play in and a variety of kid-friendly museums. Baby care items including cribs and high chairs are available for a small fee through a rental agency. Please confirm the rate and request on booking.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 nights. The pool is gated and set away from the house; the house is on 1 level with no stairs. Linens, sheets, and towels are provided. The beds will be freshly made on arrival.

Optional extra services are available upon request at reservation, including daily cleaning, bike rental, personal training, excursions, boat rental, breakfast, babysitting, personal chef, airport transfers and grocery delivery. Car rental is essential to get the best of this location.

About the Location

The house is 3km from Artigues-pres-Bordeaux, 11km northeast of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Garonne. Artigues has a rich history and well-preserved heritage and provides the charm of a small town at the heart of Bordeaux’ urban area. It has plenty of shops and offers a quiet place to stay while exploring the city, coastline and vineyards. The house is directly on the way to Bordeaux’ prestigious vineyards; a favorite is Saint Emilion. Further east is the Dordogne Valley and its castles. Ocean beaches are just an hour’s drive away. The nearest airport is in Bordeaux, 20-30 minutes' drive away, with connecting flights across Europe.

Accommodation Details

This property is set up with a main cottage and a garden cabin. The main cottage includes 3 bedrooms (2 with double/fullsize beds and 1 with a kingsize bed), along with a living space incorporating living room, dining area and open kitchen. There is a bathroom with bath and shower and a separate WC. The garden cabin has a bedroom with double/fullsize bed and a bathroom with shower. The property has a garden and a swimming pool.

Style Notes

Seaside chic. There is a seaside feel to this little wooden cottage bordered in blue, and more of a nod to the cottages of the Archachon Bay nearby. With beautiful and quirky tchotches, the house is a real one-off: carved wooden buddhas sit next to silver reclining chairs, blue ceramic vases and unusual folk-style art. We love the eating spaces outside, the breezy style and the wood cabin for a fun night's sleep.

Bordeaux, South of France

Treasure hunts, safari treks and wine

Beautiful Bordeaux is much admired for its wine and thankfully its vineyards are well set up for families with plenty of options to entertain the kids while you test the city’s famous grape juice, including iPod tours and treasure hunts, hands-on blending sessions and safari treks spotting local wildlife amid the vines. In the city itself, there are so many places to play, from skateparks and riverside sports facilities to cycle paths and the Miroir d’Eau, a reflective pool opposite the Place de la Bourse.
