After doing a lot of research on places to stay in Bordeaux I had decided on L'Autre Vie after reading the amazing reviews and it met and exceeded every expectation. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left I felt welcome, relaxed, and spoiled.
Justin and Vanessa are the ultimate hosts. When you want some peace and quiet and alone time it feels like you're the only people at the property and then the second you think you might need something (a delicious cheese plate, a glass of wine, a chat about where to go to dinner) they seem to suddenly appear. The grounds are beautiful, the breakfasts are devine and the rooms are wonderful (bathrooms included).
We stayed here for 2 nights and could have easily spent a week relaxing by the pool and checking out the area. I was also lucky enough to be proposed to on my first morning, over looking the vinyard and I must say it was the highlight of my trip. Vanessa had been emailing back and forth with my fiance to plan the big surprise and I know he was very greatful for all her help.
If you're planning a trip to Bordeaux this is the place to go in my opionion.
