All too often we’ve been lured in by beautiful pictures on a webpage, only to arrive and be afraid. Very very afraid. But, this special “gite” (inn) is more stunning in person than any Internet picture could possible convey. The home is an older chateau, being lovingly restored by its owners, Vanessa and Xavier—who, by the way, are an absolutely pleasure (they are both internationally-experienced aerospace engineers). On the property are beautiful gardens featuring roses and lavender, a welcoming (heated) pool area, and even several (fenced-in) gorgeous show horses—a passion of the owners. All of the rooms are meticulously restored, with gorgeous wood floorings, comfy beds, and mod bathrooms (we stayed in the Bordeaux room: Oh, the bathtub!... and, L’Occitane bath goodies). There are also bikes for use to explore the surrounding villages. The breakfast is a delight, featuring homemade yogurt, breads, marmalades… Overall, a wonderful find amongst the vineyards, and a must-stay should your travels bring you to this special part of the Bordeaux region.
