The Experience

Hole up for an afternoon away from it all on one of the hidden decks – pack a yoga mat, grab a bean bag for a snooze or set the children up with a board game or film (there’s Wi-Fi). There’s a deliciously inviting pool for lazy dips and no neighbours to disturb. When dusk falls, summon the tribe for sociable suppers on the terrace under the wisteria.

This house of two sides is perfect for families travelling together, with separate staircases and a big kitchen in which to cook and chat or cosy up en famille. The master bedroom has a gorgeous view over the pool and the green beyond.

Sample the wine region’s ruby-red spoils in one of the many vineyards, visit Castillon to learn of the famous battle or make for Bordeaux and the coast to climb the enormous Dune du Pilat.

The neighbourhood

Compact, charming Saint-Émilion dangles over regimented rows of vineyards famous for their rich, dark wines. It gets busy in the summer but you’re 8km drive from town, close enough to pop in for dinner and a stroll but far enough away to avoid the hoards. Little Puisseguin is closer (3km) and has a shop, and you’ll find a larger food store in Libourne (18km). Elect a designated driver for wine tours of the countless châteaux, where you can snap up bargains straight from the producer. Bordeaux is 50km away for reconnecting with urban life.

Local points of interest from Adam Hain

  • Ranked as one of the top 10 villas in France by The Times in 2018!

  • Amazing heated infinity edge pool!
  • Breathtaking views over the vineyards. Wine tours easily arranged.
  • Private areas for relaxing, reading, yoga or afternoon naps. Landscaped garden with full night lighting.
  • Toys and equipment for children. Two tennis courts available, golf nearby and bike hire


Adam Hain

Adam and his wife live in the UK but were searching for a country bolthole in France. Rainier du Chais is their place, but they leave the meeting and greeting to Michelle, an English lady who lives nearby. She’ll be on hand to sort out any requests while you’re there and leave a lovely welcome basket with all the essentials plus sweet snacks and a book about the local grapes.
