We had a lovely time in this gorgeous, cozy, comfortable cottage. It is a beautiful setting. We were concerned that it would be too far from everything but we hired a car and that made it perfect. We loved it! We will come again!

Thanks again Penny for making our stay so special. The cottage was as gorgeous as the pictures and the location outstanding - the view from every room was outstanding and our stay definitely exceeded our expectations. Thanks for being an amazing host - we would definitely recommend the wine makers cottage and Coast and Country to all our friends and family!

The perfect accomodation for two couples

The French Winemaker’s Cottage is a beautifully French countryside decorated place. The little touches are what sets it apart from other places (a bottle of their own rose, the soaps in the bathroom, the decor, the dishes, the setting, outdoor sitting area, etc). The hosts were amazing and even brought us coffee and hot cross buns on Easter! They have thought of everything. It was the perfect accomodation for two couples.
