“A beautiful hidden gem! Contemporary home from home.”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We booked our holiday late this year and we feel incredibly lucky to have stumbled on the listing for Le Sechoir, and finding it available. We often miss the small boutique hotels we once enjoyed as a couple and wanted to find somewhere child friendly, with space and a private (heated) pool.

As the other reviews have already stated, Le Sechoir is about 45mins south of Bordeaux and around ten minutes off the Autoroute. Its well hidden, but read the directions carefully that owners Véronique & François Forestier (who are lovely)! Send by email, post booking and you will be fine.

Le Sechoir is exactly as you see in the pictures, but probably better in many ways. Like many families, we went armed with a few bits from home and bar a few DVDs for the evening to keep the kids happy, probably should have left half of it behind.

The kitchen is kitted out with a huge fridge freezer, with ice machine... the oven etc is all top spec and even had an Nespresso machine! (tip - buy the French nespresso in any supermarket - cheaper). The whole house is large and spotlessly clean. The bedrooms shame most 5* hotels with large spaces, high quality furnishings and amazing Italian showers within pebble floored wet rooms. Amazing!

The living area is huge and has numerous formal/informal sofas, flat screen tv, dvd player and good quality stereo (with iPod dock) so the gadget freaks should be happy.

The outside space is open and you have uninterrupted sunshine from dawn to dusk, with the options to fire up the Weber BBQ and use flood lights or a selection of lamps/candle holders. Both our kids lived in the pool (which was heated to 26 degrees C) and had the option of a safety alarm should you have concerns about small kids falling in. Its VERY loud, so switch off at night in case the odd cat appears. We should also mention the mini "adventure playground" and trampoline which kept our two happy.

We will be back. Yes, it's a bit of a drive from London but we honestly cant think of a better place to spend a couple of weeks with our young children and compared to the other options we had stayed at or looked at, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Le Sechoir, and it's lovely owners (thank you for the bottle of Rose, its in our fridge for the next sunny day).

Oh, and for the record, this IS another family by the name of Bernard. We ended up staying an extra night... thank you Véronique & François for being so accommodating. We wish you all the very best of luck given how hard you have worked to build and run two amazing properties.
