Less than 1 hour south of Bordeaux, Préchac Park is a large family home in the heart of a typical south-western French village. Set in a 2 acre park with century old trees it borders the village square and its 11th century classified Romanesque church. Previously owned by the same family for 9 generations, Franco-Australian Anne and Allan Sanders purchased and restored the mansion after 10 years running a bed & breakfast in Brittany. The south Gironde region is renowned for its good climate, perfect for visiting the towns, villages and castles stamped by the mark of history (Aléanor d’Aquitaine, the Hundred Years War, WWII, etc).
Rated 9.8/10 by booking.com and Sawdays listed, Préchac Park offers three large, beautifully decorated suites, each with its own bath/shower facilities and can welcome up to 7 guests. Breakfast or dine (booking required for dinner) in the dining room opening onto the park. After a hard day of visiting relax by the 10m X 5m pool (April to September) or help yourself to a drink from the self-serve honesty bar in the billiard room.
Anne uses only fresh local products in preparing the meals and Allan selects the wines accordingly. He also puts his years in the hospitality industry to good use in his light-hearted wine appreciation presentations for beginners and those who are more experienced (booking required).
The South Gironde region has more than 700 km of bicycle paths that can take you through vineyards and Europe’s largest forest, even all the way to Arcachon on the Atlantic coast for the most adventurous. Préchac Park will lend you a bicycle and the picnic basket.
