Location

Pujols, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France

Nestled in the pretty commune of Pujols, our villa is surely one of the best holiday rentals South-West France has to offer! The setting is truly idyllic but still feels connected, with local towns and amenities within easy reach.

- A 5-minute drive away is Castillon-la-Bataille, with its huge supermarket, several bakers, butchers, pizzerias, restaurants and a Monday morning market
- A 15-minute drive away is Saint-Emilion, a charming medieval town and the most well-known wine town in Bordeaux
- 20 minutes away is the closest city, Libourne. It has a TGV train station which takes you to Bordeaux in 25 minutes and Paris in under 3 hours
- A 1-hour drive away is Bordeaux, with its TGV station and a high-speed train that takes you to Paris in just 2 hours

An Icelandic, living in Norway and dreaming of a whole lot of places in this world. Happily married to Örn and together we have three children. For many years, our dream had been to own a villa in France. We have travelled a lot and explored several places in France and in 2017 we discovered the Bordeaux area. We decided to take the leap and Villa du Hibou is the result. Our beautiful home is an inviting, comfortable space and we want to share it with you, our guests. We hope you enjoy your time there as much as we do.
