Being wine lovers there was no way for us come to france without visiting the Bordeaux vineyards.
We choose Clos de la Barbanne for its great location and landscape view, the very goods reviews it had on the net and, most of all, because we wanted to get a real insight of the life in the vineyards.
Truth is, it was a very good pick.
Our room was furnished with great taste, kind of french elegancy but "a la campagne", and I really loved the choice of shampoos and shower gels, very cute.
Laurent and Annie, the owners, are very welcoming, you can tell that they really love their little paradise and that they enjoy sharing it. They recommended an itinerary for us to go on a nice drive through the domaines and which good ones to go visit. They even called contacts and found us a good place for wine tasting.
Laurent showed us his property and told us about "Montagne St Emilion" and its history. Clos de la Barbanne is right in the historical heart of St Emilion, we didn't know before coming so it felt like being in a very special place.
Annie is a great cook, she made us delicious crepes for breakfast and a very special dinner.
We really look forward to coming back soon.
Clos de la Barbanne is as pretty and good as a small hotel but with the homelike feeling.
