So magical, it was truly difficult to leave!

We have been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling and have stayed at a wide range of places - but Le Quatre Puits truly stands apart. It is such an authentically beautiful property with so many thoughtful little touches all throughout. My husband, I, and are three children stayed in a family room, with a spacious room with a double bed, bathroom and separate bedroom with 3 single beds in it for the children. We felt like we had a good amount of privacy but also the opportunity to socialize with the other lovely people staying on the property, which we so enjoyed. We are all vegan and loved every full breakfast each morning, and we also ate some incredible vegan dinners there every night - sometimes in the dining hall, sometimes outside, under the gorgeous trees. Fantastic food, lovely desserts, free-flowing wine, juices, the works.

John and Keith were excellent hosts - not only did they make our stay truly excellent, they also went above and beyond to help us with directions, information, suggestions, book a great horseback outing. John even set up a breakfast table for us when we had to leave crazy early on our last morning - quite thoughtful.

The kids loved the saltwater pool, and we loved all the spots to curl up and read in the lovely gardens and walk down to the pond or borrow bikes and ride down. Can't speak more highly of this place, truly magical - we will definitely be heading back!

Pros: Beautiful grounds, Excellent vegan food, Peaceful environment

Simply the Best Vegan or Vegetarian place to stay.

This place is something special, and good value too. We have stayed in other Vegetarian/Vegan places in France and this is the best we've found. The holiday food challenge stopped as soon as we arrived at Les Quatre Puits, where we relaxed into 5-course evening meals including wine, and cooked breakfasts too if we wanted them. All the food was freshly prepared, inventive and consistently very good.
John and Keith are superb hosts and couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. It felt almost like visiting friends at a beautifully quaint country manor.
The house is gorgeous with all sorts of antique furniture and some more playful touches. The Salt-water pool is lovely and the country walks are on your doorstep. There are games available and a good library - no need to leave at all!

Pros: Gracious Hosts, Excellent Food, Fascinating House

My husband, five year old son and I had a great time this past April (2014). We stayed in one of their gites for a week, which was amazingly spacious, clean, and well decorated. It has a full kitchen, which allowed us to cook our meals. However, do not pass up dinner with the hosts! It was a wonderful meal - Keith is a great chief! There was a large grass field to run around and play soccer on, as well as many places, including a river to hike down to. It is perfectly located in the middle of the Bordeaux region. There is plenty to do within driving distance. John and Keith made our trip to France even more memorable.

Pros: Friendly Hosts, Beautiful accommodations, Excellent Food

Perfect relaxing holiday

I had a lovely week's holiday here with my family in August 2012 (ages 27-60). Some of us arrived by train, having flown to Bordeaux, and we arranged a collection by the owners from Coutras station. My Dad came with his car and whilst it's possible to have a good holiday without a car because there's plenty to do onsite, a car is definitely a help for seeing the sights in the area.
The b&b rooms are good quality and spacious - as is the rest of the house, which has elegant manor house decor as well as unique theatrical touches from the owners. The grounds are extensive, and the garden areas around the house are pretty and well maintained. The lovely outdoor swimming pool was a favourite spot for us, and a real selling point. We also enjoyed borrowing bikes and cycling to the local lake (10 mins by bike, 30 mins by foot), frisbee, table tennis, and meeting Buster the gorgeous and friendly resident Billy goat.
Breakfasts were great - plenty of variety for vegans including fresh fruit, museli, and various cooked options. The evening meals were fabulous - creative, tasty and varied vegan food and good company from Keith and John, the friendly and helpful hosts, as well as other guests.
They offer free wifi and a wonderful library of books to read on your stay, and other facilities include a large equipped kitchen for b&b guests to use, and a lounge with a TV, DVDs and an honesty fridge of refreshments.
All in all I would thoroughly recommend a holiday here, and would suggest liking their page on Facebook too. I will definitely be back.

Pros: Accommodation & facilities, Food, Hosts
