A peaceful holiday hideaway in the heart of the Entre Deux Mers

Le Cros


Le Cros was acquired by the Skipwith family in 1989 and has been lovingly transformed into a well-appointed five bedroom country home. Sleeping ten, it is perfect for families or groups of friends looking for a peaceful retreat in the heart of the Entre Deux Mers region of southwest France.  

Set in an acre of garden surrounded by uninterrupted views over the vineyards, it sits quietly in an unassuming enclave of rich history where the foot of the garden meets the UNESCO medieval site of La Commanderie de Sallebruneau, an ancient Knights Templar commandery founded in 1214.

Sauternes Double


The decor and amenities of Le Cros embrace the authenticity of its Girondine setting with many original features of the house preserved.  Each of the five bedrooms have been decorated to create a warm and welcoming sense of home with a comforting blend of the owners' Anglo-French heritage, while maintaining unique character from one to the next with each named after famous wine appelations of the region.
