Dining area in the gite

Gite La Vigne sleeps up to 8 but can be used by just 2 or 4 people and is priced to reflect this. On the ground floor are 2 bedrooms, shower and w.c. facilities.

Upstairs is a twin room,

ideal for children, and a double room. The open plan kitchen/dining area and sitting room is fully tiled, making it easily cleaned if muddy paws are popping in and out.

At Maison Arc-en-ciel we like to ensure that your dog/s have the best holiday ever! Also if you wish we can keep an eye on them if you really need to go wine tasting for example at nearby Saint Emilion, or up the road to a local organic vineyard. We have a huge field to run the dogs around in and several lovely lakes nearby for cooling off in. We are not near to any main roads so it is blissfully quiet and safe. We can also, if required, provide temporary fencing for small dogs if you have escape artists!

The nearby lake

Our countryside location makes this the perfect environment for you and your dogs, but we are within easy reach of facilities and sights.
We make an excellent stop-over point if you are travelling to or from Spain. Many people spend a couple of days with us en route to give dogs and people a break from the car. We offer 1 night bed and breakfast if you also opt for an evening meal. Our gite has a minimum of 3 nights.
We are around 10 hours' drive from the Channel Tunnel, and 6-7 hours from St Malo.

Lovely home cooking

A view from The Old School House, Pujols


The Old School House


The Old School House has an amazing new pool, created in
a private courtyard.

The area has a covered cloister on the south side to give shade and the large patio enjoys sun from morning to evening.


Pool at The Old School House

The Old School House is in a wonderful hill-top setting on the edge of lovely Pujols, where south facing rooms and the extensive garden command a breathtaking panorama over vineyards and fields, to Saint Emilion in the distance. Surrounded by idyllic villages and historic towns the area is rich in wine chateau and there are many local activities available, such as caves, canoeing, ballooning and golf.

This converted old school house is spacious, charming and busting with character yet has plenty of modern amenities. Accessed via double electric gates, it is set beside an ancient Abbey and overlooking a panorama of vineyards and rolling countryside, this is indeed a superb location.
Most of the living area is on the ground floor and features a beautifully proportioned central lounge with high ceilings and 2 large, double windows looking out to the front garden. The house can sleep 8-10 people in 3+ bedrooms (2 en-suite with an addtional bathroom/toilet and a separate toilet). The house is equally suitable for a couple.
The kitchen/dining area is light and airy with plenty of modern equipment and a large dining table. A huge and rambling garden stretches down the hillside and the Dordogne river idles past just a few miles away.


Despite the quiet setting of this beautiful house, places such as St Emilion and St Foy-La-Grande are close-by, and Bordeaux airport is only 55 minutes drive, Bergerac airport just 35 minutes drive.
