We have just returned from a four day stay. This apartment is really charming. You could not ask for more from a holiday let. It is well equipped, very comfortable and stylish. We loved it and would defiantly like to return.

“Quaint loft apartment”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for week. The apartment lived up to our expectations from the adverts. Just so peaceful. The location is great for exploring the area. All the facilities in the loft were of a good standard. Once in the loft, it was easy to forget that we weren't alone with our hosts living in the house below. We found Andy and Debbie very helpful.

“Wonderful rural retreat.........”

......but made even more so by the owners, Andy and Debbie who were charming, amusing, helpful, thoughtful, friendly and very hard working. Many of the other reviews have commented on the delightful accommodation, the village of Gensac and the surrounding area and it's attractions, all of which we agree with but do not see the point of repeating, in detail, again. We stayed here for two weeks and had a blissful time and would happily stay again and recommend to friends.

There is plenty to do, if you want to do it or, as we did for much of our stay, you can simply pour yourself a glass of wine and then sit back and enjoy the serene charm of this place. You could also ask Andy to tell you about The Purple Gang..........

We really enjoyed hosting you both, the incident with the barbecue in the paddock still makes me smile.

“Excellent rural retreat in Gensac”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We chose to stay at Kestrel's Loft because of its romantic French charm and scenic, quiet location. It proved to be just as we'd hoped. The loft space has been converted to suit a couple perfectly, especially with the open plan kitchen-living area (but mind your head on the beams!). The photos provided of the property are a very accurate representation of it. There is a lovely private pool area which works as an excellent sun spot all day, with views across the surrounding fields and vineyards. It would be nice to see the back garden spruced up and developed into more of an area to relax in, as the views across the vineyards there are great and it has the potential to be a lovely spot in the evenings. It was a sweet touch receiving a basket of baguette each morning and wine on our initial arrival, and Andy was chatty and helpful for suggesting places to visit.

The loft is located in a farmhouse courtyard at the end of a lane and it's a short pleasant walk or cycle into quaint Gensac (delicious pain au raisins at the little boulangerie!). We found Gensac a good base for visiting other villages, towns and chateaux by car, such as the charming Saint Emilion (30 mins), but some villages are just a short cycle away. We can very much recommend Le Gensake for a nice meal out in the village - gorgeous trout tartare, tasty lamb and of course, great local wine, all enjoyed in the garden out the back. Overall, a fantastic holiday and we can certainly recommend Kestrel's Loft as a base for your rural French adventure!

“A perfect stay”

Stayed at the loft for 5 nights and could not have enjoyed it any more. Andy and Debra were perfects hosts throughout our stay and made us feel very welcome. The loft itself is a charming and well equipped apartment - perfect for what we needed. We were provided with a lovely baguette each morning. The pool area was completely private and although cold the pool itself was perfectly refreshing after sunbathing for a few hours!

Would definitely recommend a stay at the apartment and would love to stay again.
